Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Imagine you found yourself Trapped in Another World, far removed from everything you know with no promise you could ever go back. And just as you started to come to grips with that, you discovered you were The Chosen One and that this world depended on you. And then your band of quirky companions, who had been your support, started to disappear one by one, leaving you alone with The Mole. And then the person you thought was your last friend betrayed you to the Big Bad, who threw you into his dungeon and promised to execute you at dawn. As you sit there in your chains, how do you feel?
Well, fortunately for you, you're a fictional character, so you get right to work on befriending the magical talking mice who know where the keys are kept. Turns out they know where to find a cool enchanted sword, too! Angst? What angst?
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The polar opposite of Wangst, this is when a character has been given every reason to fall into depression or go Ax-Crazy, but... just doesn't, and life goes on. They aren't The Stoic or the Determinator; they aren't holding off their real feelings by an effort of will. Nor are they putting on a brave face because they can't endure pity. They're just sort of rolling with it, riding out the adventure as it comes and looking ahead to the next plot event.
This trope appears frequently in children's media, particularly adventure stories featuring young heroes who never Freak Out when piloting a burning biplane into a T. rex's gaping maw. These protagonists take everything in stride. If anything, they think it's all impossibly cool and wish it would never end. Standard children would be forgiven if they burst into hysterics, but it isn't fun for usual children to read about other kids screaming in terror as their lives fall apart. So fictional children don't. That said, it doesn't have to be an adventure story or a work specifically aimed at children, as any genre with horrible suffering is a good environment to show off this trope (except the ones that thrive on the characters angsting, like soap operas).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The Deconstructed version of this trope exposes the calm protagonist as a Stepford Smiler, showing nothing on the surface but breaking inside. Another alternate route goes that they may genuinely not be able to experience angst, whether through emotional detachment or social conditioning. It is also possible to combine this trope with the Law of Disproportionate Response, creating a character who overreacts to little things and underreacts to big things, all to show how mentally unstable they have become.
Given how disliked Wangst is, you'd think this would be preferable, but any trope can be mishandled. A character shrugging at trauma that would reduce an average Real Life person to emotional collapse (or at least a few honest tears) can definitely strain the audience's Willing Suspension of Disbelief and may even make some characters respond with genuine shock or confusion. A character who does not react to suffering at all can come across as The Sociopath — hardly what this trope meant to express. Of course, similar to Wangst, this trope can be Played for Laughs as well.
Possibly Truth in Television for the more extreme cases. If you're fighting for your life, you don't have time to think about how awful it is — not at that very second, anyway. Afterward, all bets are off. Also in some cases, it could be presumed that mourning did happen, just offscreen.
Compare Plot-Powered Stamina, where characters shrug off physical (rather than emotional) trauma and stress like it's nothing.

In inFAMOUS, Cole loses Trish, gets backstabbed by Zeke, discovers that his future-self is a huge asshole, and learns that there is an unstoppable world-destroying monster on the way that only he can fight. In the sequel, he's back on good terms with Zeke and seems all-around fairly chipper. This may or may not be a façade depending on your interpretation. Zeke had to work to prove that he was still Cole's friend, bringing up the topic of Trish around Cole is a Bad Idea and in the good path he never shows interest in any other woman, he will react very poorly to the mention of his similarities with Kessler, and he spends almost every waking moment trying to find ways to fight back against the Beast. His lack-of-angst about the destruction of Empire City is still very strange, however.

In stark contrast to many other vampires, Valvatorez from Disgaea 4 spends very little time on brooding over tragic events. He's even cheerful about his fall from Tyrant to the lowly position of Prinny Instructor.

Adventure Time:
Finn, much like Aang, is the Last of His Kind thanks to war but unlike Aang, Finn had no direct involvement with its destruction, completely helpless as a baby. His toddler years were a crapshoot, as highlighted in "Memories of Boom Boom Mountain". His adopted parents are dead. As a thirteen-year-old, he contends with every villain in Ooo while the various kingdoms tend to sit on their asses and do nothing. Besides Jake and the on-and-off help of Marceline, he's on his own. No one else is helping him take down the villains, aside from sporadic help from Princess Bubblegum. There are hints (most prominently in how he acts incredibly needy in his love life) that he is repressing crushing loneliness and depression, but given what he's gone through and continues to go through, it's amazing that he's functional at all, and on a day-to-day basis, very upbeat.
The Ice King is a somewhat more explicitly tragic example; he seems to immediately forget about trauma because his crown forces him to.

Gentaro lost his parents when he was little, but when his friends find out about this he says it doesn't bother him much because he still has happy memories of them, and every day he tries to make as many friends as possible, just like they asked. This is a strong contrast to other Heisei Riders like Kenzaki and Haruto who also lost their parents when they were little, but still suffer a form of survivor's guilt at the start of their shows.

Sleepless Domain:
In chapter ten, Heartful Punch tells Undine about her past, which involves her mother losing her Magical Girl powers giving birth to her and her mother and grandparents dying in a monster attack when HP was an infant. Undine confesses that she hadn't expected HP's past to be that rough since she's usually such an upbeat Boisterous Bruiser. Heartful Punch admits that wasn't always true as, at thirteen, she angsted about it so heavily that her largely pink, personality reflecting costume had black in it for a time.
The appearance of this trope in Undine sets off the events of chapter 14. In it, Cassidy and Undine are paired for sparring during club. Cassidy then proceeds to attack Undine, expressing suspicion that she was somehow responsible for the fate of Team Alchemical. Among the reasons she cites for this is just how quickly Undine seemed to bounce back after the events of chapter two, joining the Magical Girls Power Training Club "like nothing happened" less than a week later. Readers, however, know just how much those events have weighed on Undine and, in fact, her joining the club was primarily to get strong enough to do something about it.

In 2012, given that something like 99.995% of the world's population died less than a month ago everyone on the arks seems to have got over it rather quickly. Adrian and the President's daughter deserve special mention, flirting carefree just after both their fathers (and presumably the rest of their families) died.

It seems that every high school student and elementary school kid in Detective Conan is completely unfazed by witnessing grisly murder scenes almost every day. Even bystanders and single-arc characters who would logically be less desensitized to trauma have often just lost someone and tend to describe horrific personal events with uniform slightly worried faces.

Samurai Jack:
The Scotsman seems rather jolly when he rises as a ghost after being incinerated down to his bones in front of his mortified daughters by Aku. He just seems happy to have come back in his youthful prime as a Spirit Advisor.
Played more seriously, Ashi shows little resentment towards Jack for killing all of her sisters: it's intended to hammer home the fact that the Daughters were raised to repress their empathy, even for each other.

Subverted in the first episode of Kimba the White Lion where Kimba is forced by his mother to leave her trapped on a boat while he escapes.

Dragon Age:
Zevran in Dragon Age: Origins hides behind a facade of this unless he trusts the main character enough to reveal his true feelings.
Sigrun in Awakening, despite being the Sole Survivor of a sect of Death Seeking Dwarves refuses to wallow in angst and is about as upbeat as someone in her position can get.
The Grey Warden's origin can have such lovely events as being tainted by a cursed artifact, having your younger brother murder your older brother and pin the crime on you, or having your family's castle assaulted and your entire family down to your young nephew killed. Then there's the battle where you're double-crossed and one of only two survivors. You'd think that would result in some issues, which it does with Alistair.

Misfile:
Ash angsts constantly about the problems from his Gender Bender. But he never angsts (or even notices) that his pre-Gender Bender life was in some ways worse; he had no mother, his father was cold to him, he had a grand total of two friends (or, for that matter, people he even talked to), and so on. In fairness, the intense mental and emotional effect of a radical change in your body and having your entire life and past changed to something you don't even know everything about overnight isn't exactly easy. Furthermore, a fair amount of angst is because his life is better as a girl.
Emily just lost the last two years of her life. Oh, and all of her former "friends" didn't make the jump back. So, she's isolated, stressed, and confused, and she rarely complains about it. She even says so, which pisses off Ash since he's NOT happy with the change. Then they have a big "I want to help you, but I like my own life" thing, where she probably was about to admit she'd love for Ash to be a boy again, because she wants in his pants, but not as a girl.

A story in X-Men featured a villain trying to psychically possess Jean Grey's corpse. To stop her, Cyclops secretly had Jean's body dug up and replaced with somebody else's. Oddly, despite all the truckloads of Wangst that Cyke has had about Jean's death over the years, digging up her corpse didn't seem to disturb him that much. He got over it in about two pages.
And discussed by Jubilee (a sassy orphan) and Archangel (who's been tortured, mutilated, brainwashed, and had his fiancee murdered, and has since been playing The Stoic).

In The Dragon Doctors, Kili's life has been turned upside down at least four times that we know of — by the King of Dust as a child, by the destruction of his hometown as a teenager, by the Gender Bender at the start of the story, and by becoming a werewolf not long after that — and every time it was involuntary and unwanted. But you would be hard-pressed to know that from meeting her because she has made it her job to know how to deal with bad fortune. Literally.

Lily in Mia's route from Duel Savior Destiny after seeing all her friends outside of Taiga turned to stone (forever, for all she knew), Mia seemingly fall to her death, and her mother being arrested. Though it's more that she can't, since breaking down would cause Taiga's horrible mental state to become even worse, which would almost certainly lead to Ruin winning.

In Magic Knight Rayearth, the girls are summoned to Cephiro and cannot return home to their families until their task is complete — which, for all they know, could take the rest of their lives (if they aren't killed first). Hikaru and Fuu have very little trouble with this, and Umi doesn't angst, but she whines a lot about missing her fencing tournament and because there's no Haagen-Das in Cephiro.
In the TV series, however, one episode is dedicated to how Umi actually angsts about her situation, which led her to be trapped in her own self-made Lotus-Eater Machine and finally resolves to stop angsting.
Ironically, all three girls eventually avert the trope come the finale of the first season. They learned that the true reason why they're summoned to Cephiro was to Save the Princess by killing her because she was unable to support the stability of the world by falling in love with someone, her kidnapper. They returned home with a heavy dose of angst that they showed apparently enough.

Now and Then, Here and There takes this to its logically absurd extreme, but probably for the better. Shu is quickly abducted from his world and his main beef with the new world is its war. For eleven episodes, his abduction doesn't faze him in the least and any mention of "Earth" is mere background information or due to the introduction of Sara Ringwalt. He returns to Earth in episode thirteen and—that's all. Fortunately, almost everyone else in the show balances out his vacuous optimism.

07-Ghost: After having had his country invaded and everyone he knew, including his adoptive father, murdered while still a small child, being made a combat slave and forced to kill people daily during training for years and seeing his only friend die after having been possessed by the man who killed his father, Teito Klein holds himself remarkably well. He still angsts once in a while, but who wouldn't in his place?

In the Girls und Panzer fic Of Blood and Steel, this is zig-zagged. Erwin doesn't feel much angst over her father's death from liver failure two years ago, saying that "the pain is largely gone", but is quite bitter over having to move as a result of her mother getting a new job in America. Henrietta's lack of reaction to being ostracized due to being the daughter of a Private Military Contractor is similar to Erwin's glossing over her father's death, saying that she's dealt with it for long enough.

Slayers:
Given that she belongs to a royal family that's full of members constantly at each other's throats and will do morally questionable things for the sake of power (especially with her cousin Alfred, who requests help from two members of an Always Chaotic Evil race of demons), Princess Amelia doesn't seem very fazed by the tragedies that happened to her: when her uncle Randionel is killed in the first season after a botched act of treason, she moves on as if nothing happened. However, it's implied that the assassination of her mother and her sister's disappearance upset her greatly, but the angst implied behind it is appropriate and never exaggerated.
It's implied that Gourry had a horrific family life; outside material notes that his family had a massive personal war over the Sword of Light. He runs off with it, meets a man who instills him with purpose (he was actually Lina's father), and from there, became the happy-go-lucky swordsman who strives for the future that he's known as.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the characters don't let something as trivial as a floating island that could wipe out humanity if dropped stop them from making wisecracks. It's something of a trademark for Joss Whedon in his works, but many professional and amateur critics have noted that while the constant quipping in life-or-death situations is an effective tension-breaker and helps lighten the mood, tension is a good thing when a scene actually calls for it, and injecting humor into it will cause immediate Mood Whiplash.

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Champions seem on the whole remarkably cheery despite having been killed in the Great Calamity and trapped as ghosts in their Divine Beasts for a century. Only Mipha is shown to have been truly upset by this, having been "awash in a pool of tears" until Link came to free her. Revali is more annoyed that Link took so long than anything. Daruk and Urbosa are especially happy and encouraging when guiding Link through their Divine Beasts.

Star Trek: Enterprise:
T'Pol after her mother's death. Then again, she's a Vulcan, so she was probably repressing it. On the other hand, Trip still feels the death of his sister several episodes later and has nightmares about it.
In an alternate future episode, Earth has been destroyed by the Xindi, but everyone seems fine with it. Archer feels sad for about a minute.
Interestingly, Soval, despite being a Vulcan, seems genuinely sad about Admiral Forrest's death. For about an episode. Of course as a Vulcan, the fact that it lasted that long is really saying something.
Hoshi is Mind Raped by the Xindi Reptilians but suffers for no more than an episode after this.

Sonic the Hedgehog:
Sonic just doesn't seem to "do" angst. Throw him into space, blow up his home, turn him into a werewolf, he'll shrug it off within five seconds and get back to work. The closest thing to angst we've ever seen from him is a brief moment of reflection during the ending of Sonic Adventure 2, but even then he shrugs it off pretty quickly. It's explained in Sonic Unleashed by Sonic having an amount of Heroic Willpower off the charts, so much so that it's the only reason his transformation into the Werehog only gave him a slightly enhanced aggression streak (and he never experiences any real negative influence from it) instead of turning him into a monstrous killing machine. Also, his Image Song It Doesn't Matter reveals he does have fears and is uncertain about what is right or wrong, but there's just so many things to do in life that he'd rather not waste it bogged down by his insecurities. This aspect of his character comes more into focus in the Sonic Storybook Series.
Tails is apparently an orphan that lives alone in his laboratory building things until Sonic decides to call him up whenever he needs to use his airplane. It's also mentioned in most continuities that he was heavily bullied before he met Sonic. Yet he still manages to be a Cheerful Child, despite a backstory that should make him every bit as depressed as Shadow.

Modest Mouse's "Float On" is the musical epitome of this trope. ("A fake Jamaican took every last dime with a scam/It was worth it just to learn some sleight-of-hand/Bad news is coming don't you worry cuz when it lands/Good news will work its way to all them plans") The whole reason the song even exists is because frontman Isaac Brock wanted to take a break from writing depressing, angsty music.

Minorin in Toradora! lives by the principle that she shall always be happy, no matter what happens. Although she doesn't have any actual tragedy in her past, this still leaves her feeling a bit... hollow, at times. She might even fool herself, but she isn't fooling the viewers.

In Danganronpa Abridged Thing, this trope is often in effect considering that the fairly dark moments of the original Danganronpa are Played for Laughs. In the original, Naegi was quite heartbroken and betrayed when Maizono, who was possibly the closest person he had to a friend among his Hope's Peak Academy, was murdered in the course of trying to kill someone and frame him for it, although it's implied that he forgave her and came to terms with the issue. Here, after the original freakout over finding a dead body in his shower fades, he's most shocked about the victim supposedly planning a "sugoi booty call" in his room. This is possibly because, in the abridged series, the kindest thing Naegi could say about Maizono was that he was "the only one who could tolerate her."

In Disney's Sleeping Beauty, Aurora has a meltdown when she's told she can't see a boy (she literally just met outside of infancy) again. On the other hand, she doesn't give two spits that her aunts are fairies hired to protect her, she's now required to go live as a princess after years of freedom as a peasant, and her parents are actually alive and well. If the happy dance at the end is any indication, Phillip is all that matters at all.

Uncharted: The games play out like adventure tales, with the treasure-hunting protagonists frequently making breezy and irreverent comments to each other as they explore lost tombs and civilizations. While this would make sense as Casual Danger Dialog for treasure hunters, it doesn't really take into account that the gameplay heavily features combat, so these amiable treasure hunters are killing hundreds of mooks between the quips. The games never seem to acknowledge that, by the final installment, Drake alone has murdered over a thousand people.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has Lightning mention that she should be feeling something, especially since she sent her little sister onto a journey that, she learned, was the cause of Serah's death, but feels nothing. It is explained that Bhunivelze 'sealed' her emotions away so that she could focus on her mission of saving as many souls as possible before Nova Chrysalis ceases to exist. Near the end, though, Lightning shows everything that has been repressed and realizes in horror what her becoming Etro for the new world will mean: being forever separated from her sister and friends and tearfully begs for someone to help her.

In the Miraculous Ladybug episode "Timebreaker", Chat is surprisingly cavalier about his death in a previous timeline, much to Ladybug's annoyance. On a broader level, he immediately Jumped at the Call in "Origins", not caring in the slightest- then or later- that it entailed risking his life on a daily basis.
In general, the people who get turned into the Monster of the Week seem fine after they've been changed back and carry on with their lives as normal, though that might be partly due to them not remembering what they did as villains, and the fact that most people don't blame them for it. Paris is probably just used to Akuma attacks by now.

Keri in the Cool Kids Table game Bloody Mooney is pretty chill about finding her own mother torn apart with blood everywhere thanks to being eaten by the very animal that she brought into her home. Though her player Shannon has stated that it was closer to shock than anything else, and the game ends before we can see Keri react much further than the initial surprise.

Shouko from A Silent Voice seems to hold no ill contempt to Shouya for severely bullying her in elementary due to being deaf. In fact she doesn't seem quite sad about anything despite having an emotionally distant and abusive mother, or the fact her disability has caused her to be ostracized. It's later deconstructed when it's shown Shouko is covering up her sadness. She became suicidal due to the bullying and the Festival Episode ends with her trying to jump off a balcony, despite seeming fine before. Shouya saves her but gets injured in the process. In the chapters afterwards Shouko lowers her guard and her true pain becomes noticeable.

In My Lovely Ghost Kana, the titular character killed herself in a gruesome manner more than a decade before the start of the story, Daikichi lost his job, home, and over half his possessions, before the only place he could find to live was a haunted apartment, considering suicide himself, and Utako went through some horrible tragedy before she showed up. By all rights, could be a freight train full of angst there. But with the help of Kana forgetting her reasons and being so happy to be around others again, they rise above and find a happy way to live without it.

Nina of Breath of Fire II is gradually revealed to have the darkest past of any of the player party, including being excommunicated by her family, raised half a continent away from her home, and generally shunned from returning thanks to her black wings. Apart from being a bit depressed when she explains the symbolism of the latter, she never shows any angst over it, due to a stable upbringing, a healthy set of coping mechanisms, and willpower that impresses even her ancestor.

Baldur's Gate:
Your party is generally made up of either psychos, megalomaniacs, or people with incredibly tragic backstories. Mazzy Fentan in particular, despite having her entire party of companions turned into life-sucking undead horrors, just picks up her blade and goes on.
CHARNAME, over the course of the games, lost (for the sake of convenience) his father, his home and a startling number of friends (and Xzar), learned he's descended from the dead and evil God of Murder and witnessed countless innocents meet horrifying fates at the hands of cosmic horrors and tentacle monsters. The net result, as most people play it, includes very little moping and huge quantities of snark, usually followed by a few explosions, and then carry on as always - including providing therapy for angsty comrades.

X-Factor:
Strong Guy is one of the "hurts on the inside" variety. He's always cracking jokes, despite emotional pain and physical pain (because of the way his powers warped his body).
One issue in X-Factor (2006) was all about Doctor Leonard Samson going through the team in his role as a psychiatrist. This revealed that Monet kept all her feelings bottled up inside because she feels she needs to put up a brave face, and she is afraid of losing control of herself, especially with how her brother ended up evil. Meanwhile, Siryn appeared to take her father's death in Deadly Genesis oddly lightly. She explained that he was bound to come back from the dead, given how that happens constantly in the Marvel universe. Samson is left speechless. Whether that is a perfectly reasonable stance or unhealthy denial is left up to the reader to decide.

Guardians of the Flame: While this is averted by the main characters toward each other (except for Jason Parker, who got killed early on) it's completely played straight with regards to everyone they left here on Earth, i.e. "the Other Side". It's to the point that most don't even mention their parents, other family, friends etc. While their return to "This Side" the first time makes sense, as they had to get James Michael/Ahira Back from the Dead, later none seems to care. In another book later Walter thinks about his brother, pondering that he hasn't seen him for years after settling down into "the Other Side" permanently, and likely never will again. That's it. For all their loved ones know, they disappeared without a trace, and the mental anguish of that (as many who have lost people will know, especially when there's no explanation) could be quite devastating. Apparently though this never occurs to any of them, nor does the fact they will never see them again or can explain what happened affect them at all in the books. However, since it's shown that Narnia Time applies (several weeks of adventuring adds up to eight hours back on Earth), it's likely that even by the time Karl and Andy-Andy's son grows to maturity, they've been gone from Earth for a few weeks, tops. Plus since they 1) literally have no way to get back home once the Dragon is awakened and 2) are in a near-constant fight for their lives, focusing on the here-and-now is essential to their physical and mental survival. Even so, that they don't show even a single instance of concern or sorrow over this is really jarring.

Lyrical Nanoha:
Fate, rather than being emotionally devastated by her mentor and mother figure Linith disappearing as a result of fulfilling her contract with Precia, feels mostly gratitude toward her, and Fate only regrets that her training was the only thing Linith could do for Precia. Unfortunately, this marks the point where Precia goes from being cold and distant to actually physically and emotionally abusive.
Several protagonists have Dark and Troubled Pasts, but they tend to have very little angst in the present. Dark Magical Girls like Fate and Lutecia overcome their tragic circumstances and become much happier after being befriended. Nanoha herself loves being a magical girl, despite how dangerous and difficult it is. No matter how daunting the opposition, she never once wavers or bemoans her situation, and the only time in the series she broke down was when Vivio was kidnapped. Even then, she didn't let it affect her performance.
Vivio was introduced to the franchise dragging herself through a sewer in rags and was later kidnapped, tortured, and forced into a fight to the death with her mother. At no point in any of the later seasons does she let the memory of this affect her, to the point that Rinne mistakenly believes that she never underwent any hardship in her life (since everything related to her trauma was classified by the TSAB).

Allen Walker of D.Gray-Man. The universe has put him through an incredible amount of crap, including Parental Abandonment, the death of his surrogate father, his turning his surrogate father into an Akuma because he didn't know any better, his freaky left arm going berserk and re-killing Mana after he got his face slashed up, getting adopted by an abusive Trickster Mentor who smacks him around and leaves him to pay debts upward of tens of thousands of dollars, and then having to find the Black Order headquarters with absolutely no clue where it was, and no help from Cross, who knocked him out and left so he wouldn't have to report back to his bosses. And that's just the backstory. Despite all this, and the fact that his disfigured left eye makes him see the tortured soul of every Akuma he comes across, he's cute and perpetually cheerful, and while he does get upset about some of what happens during the series, he always defaults back to his usual Wide-Eyed Idealist self eventually.

Very rarely, it's averted. Being led to believe that he fathered a girl and tortured her nearly drove Linkara to a guilt-induced suicide, while The Nostalgia Critic, The Nostalgia Chick, and Ask That Guy with the Glasses are all consistently a therapist's wet dream.

Naruto:
Even though Naruto has no family and everyone around him hates him just for existing, he doesn't seem to have any angst at all, and further displays this trope in regards to being the jinchuriki of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, expressing little angst over the matter after he initially found out. Probably the most shocking instance is in an event where he is confronted with the villain that's the direct reason he grew up an orphan and had the fox sealed inside of him. Considering his reaction when he had the chance to talk to his father about it, one would expect him to be angry, but he treats it the same as every other fight. However, as to the former, the first arc where they actually do some fighting spells out that he'd gotten over it after angsting non-stop for several years, and one of Naruto's teachers steps up as a father-figure, mainly because he grew up in similar circumstances. Kakashi suggests that Naruto must have gotten tired of crying about his plight, and decided to instead work toward being acknowledged.
Fellow Jinchuuriki Killer Bee embodies this even more than Naruto himself. His relationship with his beast is actually quite friendly and his brother is genuinely protective and caring.
After The Last: Naruto the Movie Hanabi seems pretty okay for a girl who was kidnapped and had her eyes temporarily removed.

Stand Still, Stay Silent: Emil comes across as this after Tuuri's death, considering an earlier point of the story had him much more obviously sad and bummed out over the death of the mother and littermates of the kitten that went on to become the Team Pet. Giving a Mercy Kill to the Plague Zombie dog responsible for the death of the mother and littermates had him quite shaken as well.

Fullmetal Alchemist:
Edward has relatively little angst given that at age 11 he lost two limbs and was exposed to These Are Things Man Was Not Meant to Know in an effort to bring one of his parents back to life, which comes out wrong. He half-believes that he has condemned his brother to a Fate Worse than Death, and in order to correct this joins the military, despite knowing that they previously used people with powers like his to commit genocide. That's all in the prologue. Someone like that should be worrying less about angst and more about if they have any sanity points left. One of the changes to his characterization the 2003 anime did was avert this trope, with him having PTSD symptoms and being considerably more depressed than the manga.
His brother Alphonse as well. To sum up: His father leaves, mother dies, and they decide to bring her back. This fails, and he's temporarily trapped in the screwed up body that they ended up making and loses his body to the Truth. Al then blocks the Truth from his memory out of shock, taking away the good (clappable transmutation) that was supposed to come with the bad. His brother manages to bring back his soul and attach it to a suit of armor, leaving him unable to sleep, eat, feel, and all around keeping him from leading a normal life. Al blames himself for all of this. Now, once we start on the main storyline, well, let's just say that things didn't get any better from there.
Winry shows signs of this in the 2003 anime. An early episode had her kidnapped and nearly brutally murdered by Barry the Chopper. Such an event would mentally scar even the toughest women, nevermind a barely teenage girl. She never shows any problems afterward (besides crying directly after the kidnapping). This trope is averted with her deceased parents, though. She does not take well to learning Roy killed them.

The protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance both averts and embraces it - while he strives to go home, he does so in a manner free of angst. In Final Fantasy Tactics A2, meanwhile, the protagonist is dragged alone (at least Marche had his friends dragged with him), he kind of goes with it. At one point, he rather cheerfully admits to forgetting that the whole point of him traveling and adventuring was to go home; he was having too much fun, you know, traveling and adventuring.

RWBY: In early seasons, Ruby stays perenially cheerful and happy as the tone grows Darker and Edgier and the cast begin to develop more complex personalities. Some people find it grating, others see her positive attitude as a charming non-British example of Stiff Upper Lip. And then there is one episode that implies she really is as affected by the goings-on as everyone else but feels the need as leader of Team RWBY to keep up the appearance.

In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (IDW) the Cutie Mark Crusaders don't seem to think being fillynapped by a monstrous Queen is a big deal, nor did they seem bothered by the fact that the queen killed a luvcat in front of them.
Also, Fluttershy is gleefully fascinated by two creatures fighting over the right to eat her and her friends. Played for Laughs, since she is a Friend to All Living Things and simply treated it like watching a live-action nature documentary.

The Boys (2019): In "The Bloody Doors" Annie's ease of getting over accidentally killing their carjacking victim, an innocent man, is at odds with her character when the worst she's done so far is blackmail. Given that Annie admits to being under constant stress as The Mole, she's likely become more self-centered as a way of coping. She herself even wonders aloud over this change in her character, saying her only thought about the guy was he'd been an idiot.

Although Bear from Franklin was just as close to Otter as Franklin was, he doesn't seem upset or fazed all that much after she moves away while Franklin does not take it well. (Then again, maybe he is a bit relieved that she isn't around anymore.) Actually, Bear doesn't seem to get fazed at all much like his friends. He can be stoic, frivolous, or even hedonistic but when it comes to dishonesty or things that change his personal routine (suddenly being a big brother or getting homesick during a sleepover) is when he becomes emotional.

Vernita's daughter from Kill Bill doesn't look upset that her mother was murdered right in front of her. Though it might be because she's just too shocked to react. Beatrix at least seems to believe it will affect her, as she claims she'll understand if the girl tries to avenge this later.

Diamonds Are Forever. The film opens with Bond hunting down his wife's murderer, Big Bad Ernst Stavro Blofeld, with the permission and support of MI6 and apparently getting his revenge by making Blofeld drown headfirst into superheated mud. While that should have given him some satisfaction to help him recover, the fact remains that his wife has just been killed on their wedding day, and yet he's back to his old womanizing and deadpanning days in an instant, even laughing at a few cracks Miss Moneypenny makes about engagement rings. This could be due to the Negative Continuity of the series.

In Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, Judau Ashta goes through hell. He inherits a battle he never had any interest in, he seemingly loses his little sister even when one of his friends promised to keep her alive, nearly every attempt he has at keeping his enemies from throwing their lives away fails miserably, and his primary love interest is the leader of the enemy faction and he has to not only kill her but also the fact she deliberately threw the duel. He does a very good job getting over the various problems with only short instances of depression, but in the end, he finally hits the breaking point. Bright Noah uses a reverse Brightslap to get him out of it.

Subverted with Mikasa in Attack on Titan: when it looks like Eren was devoured by a Titan, everybody expects her to freak out (knowing how close they are), but instead, she quickly collects herself and rallies the surviving soldiers to a counterattack against the Titans. Very soon, however, it becomes obvious that far from shrugging it off, Mikasa instead went straight to the Death Seeker stage of grief and her "counterattack" is basically a Self-Destructive Charge in order to at least die fighting.

In Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins's father dies in about the second chapter. This is the last mention of him; from then on Jim's too busy having an adventure to grieve.

Played with in Cyborg 009. The cyborgs tend to make quite a few jokes even while in the midst of dangerous situations and few seem troubled by the knowledge that there's no way to return to their previous lives. Granted this is justified for most of them, but it's kind of odd that 003 never shows much interest in finding her brother again. When the group is first escaping from the Black Ghost, they generally seem fine with the fact that their bodies have been drastically changed. Joe himself seems more concerned that he's been kidnapped for a week rather than the fact that he's now not entirely human (his reaction to a diagram of his modifications is just a "Woah!") 004 does show angst on and off over his dead fiancee and extensive body modifications, 008 briefly goes into a Heroic BSoD over Gilmore upgrading his body to be covered in silver scales without his consent, and while most of the team handles their upgrades and prosthetic replacements well enough in God's War, 003 breaks down completely upon receiving her new eyes and hand.

Chaka of the Whateley Universe. Turned into a mutant, the mutation changed them from a he to a she, had to leave home and go to Whateley Academy, targeted by more than one campus villain, has fought supervillains who kill people, and never angsts. A lot of the reason is that the old Tony hated their life because he knew they were transgender, so the change to Toni is everything they'd ever dreamed of. Everything else is just side-issues to them.

In Soul Hunter, Taikoubou hardly angsts about anything. Sure, Dakki throws a bunch of humans he was trying to protect into a pit filled with carnivorous alligators and snakes, and he feels a bit bad about that, but he gets over it within a few pages (in the anime, it took a bit longer - around maybe 10 minutes?). The closest thing to angsting was when his best friend Fugen Shinjin was killed, but even then, he quickly changes his attitude to becoming determined to immediately avenge his death (which he does quickly). At the end, when Jyoka causes him to start crumbling and dying, saying, "My last bit of selfishness... please vanish with me..." his reply is to look slightly irritated and calmly say, "Well, fine..."

Screen Rant Pitch Meetings often makes fun of movies that fall into this trope, as shown in the page quote. The Screenwriter will often mention something horrible happening to the character, often losing a mentor or loved one. The Producer then asks whether the character will feel sad about it, and the Screenwriter will say that the character will be upset for a few minutes, if at all.

Hayate the Combat Butler brings us Hayate Ayasaki, the titular butler. Pretty much the first thing we see of him is him getting into a terrible bike accident due to his atrocious luck and shrugging it off like an everyday thing. Then he gets fired from his bike courier job because his parents revealed he lied about his age to get the job. He didn't even get to collect his last paycheck because his parents ran off with it and lost it all gambling. Hayate finds this out by a note they left for him that also stated he was going to pay the Yakuza back for all of the debts they owed...with his organs. And all of this happened on Christmas Eve. And he's been so plagued by horrible misfortune and terrible parents that he doesn't even bother to scream or rage at how unfair all of this is.
The original manga makes it clear that Hayate is just used to all of this and he does occasionally (maybe two or three times in over 10 years of publication) lament that his life kind of sucks. But he is always remarkably chill about the horrible things his parents have done to him and tends to bring others to tears when he nonchalantly talks about his childhood. The audience finds out soon enough that this is really because he just plain lost all love and faith for his parents a looong time ago. The first anime makes him more The Pollyanna and far more delusionally optimistic than manga!Hayate, although subsequent seasons followed the manga more closely and Hayate is noticeably bitter and cynical but nevertheless puts up with everything the universe throws at him with little more than a sarcastic jab.

In Final Fantasy III, one of your Guest Star Party Members, Aria, performs a Heroic Sacrifice and dies in Luneth's arms. After they all black out and wake up in town later, no further mention is made, not even by Luneth, who Aria was closest to.

Final Fantasy VII:
Red XIII is introduced as one of Hojo's research specimens and was being experimented on for use in breeding experiments. It's unclear how long he has been a specimen for, but it's suggested it's for years. Other party members subjected to Hojo's experimentation (Vincent and Cloud) were deeply traumatised by it. The moodiest Red XIII gets about it is a brief Fauxshadowing scene where he mentions to Tifa that he's worried he'll start to go mad like the Clones, and Tifa tells him to be strong - other than that, he's more concerned with his own dorky persona issues than the horrific body horror in his history. This may be the result of how a lot of Red XIII's planned material was cut. It might also be a character choice, as upon witnessing his grandfather's death, Red XIII responds with giggling denial.
Aeris's death was a very dark event for video games at the time and is still unusual in that it focuses on loss and emptiness rather than Heroic Sacrifice. As Cloud points out, he nearly killed her himself and would have done if his party members hadn't distracted him at the critical moment. The party continues on their journey North, where they go to a town full of cute snowmen and children in bobble hats, have a slapsticky fight with Elena and travel to the next dungeon by doing a comedic obstacle course on a rainbow-coloured snowboard. The characters don't actually comment about Aeris or mourn for her at all until the party runs out of obvious things to do, leading Cloud to start wondering about what Aeris's plan had been.
Every playable character have some deep issues that bother them. Aeris, whiling having her own issues as well, is the most well adjusted of the group. Despite the fact that her mother died protecting her while fleeing from Shinra, constantly being hunted down by Shinra, and growing up in the Midgar slums with her adoptive mother, Aeris remains quite cheerful and always has a positive outlook. This makes her sudden death all the more tragic for everyone.

'World of Warcraft: For whatever reason, since Mists of Pandaria Horde characters aren't allowed to mention their grievances about the Alliance actions against them. A blatant example is the Explorer's league backed by Ironforge wiping out an entire tauren tribe never getting a mention even when the Horde player is sent to kill one of the Generals who did it(who is inexplicably depicted as sympathetic) or the Horde, tauren included, working with the Explorer's League in Legion.

Power Rangers Super Megaforce gives us Orion. He's a simple civilian from Andresia and its sole survivor, after the armada attacked. Orion spent a long time being alone on his planet, simply working on surviving and living, until he managed to hijack an airship from the enemies and came to Earth. Outside of his introductory episode making a short mention that he's bent on getting his revenge on the empire, nothing comes of it. He's shown participating in shopping trips with Gia and Emily, dancing in his underpants in an empty school, and his revenge is only ever mentioned near the end, where he supposedly learned to get over his need for revenge. However, (Super) Megaforce was a season known for its horrible handling of characters and over-reliance on action scenes, so none of the characters really had much going for them. It's just that Orion's case stands out because there was apparently supposed to be something that never came to fruition.

Zigzagged in Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts for the 13-year-old titular character. When she first discovers her Jaguar Mute abilities, she's appropriately horrified and confused by what's happening to her, concerned about scaring off her friends or losing control and harming them. So you'd think that learning her parents experimented on her in-vitro, pumping her embryo with various mutagens, would just add to the horror. But while everyone else is disturbed or disgusted when learning the details, Kipo is actually overjoyed by this knowledge, more impressed by her parents' intelligence and the general coolness of her powers than anything else. However, what she does worry is that her powers would scare off or hurt everyone she cares about (both instances happened at different points for the record).

Chargeman Ken!: In episode 53 of the memetic anime from the 70s, Ken's sailor uncle, Yamada marries a woman named Yoshiko. Literally a day after the marriage, Yoshiko is revealed to be an alien in disguise and a spy, leading to her getting killed by Chargeman Ken. Immediately following the scene of Yoshiko's death, the episode jumps to Yamada cheerfully taking in the news that his newly wed bride is a dead alien spy, leading to an Every Body Laughs Ending when his brother suggests finding a new girl.

Static Shock: Averted with Static who struggles with balancing his normal life and being a superhero. Gear, on the other hand, loves being a superhero. When the government finds a way to cure every meta-human in the city, Static wonders if it's for the best while Gear freaks out. Justified since Gear's powers make it possible for him to breeze through school with minimal effort, and hiding being a superhero from his parents would probably be easy for him since he already spent most of his life hiding the fact that his best friend is black from his racist father.

In Origins, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands/Halo crossover, the Rich Bitch character Jackie Jakobs comes off as manipulative, engages in some Cold-Blooded Torture of heroic characters, and generally makes herself dislikeable. Then it is revealed she has a reason or several to be the way she is. Thanks to the Trans-Galactic Republic, Jackie receives some much-needed real therapy after first being helped by Mad Moxxi. Her properly-licensed therapist even lampshades how quickly her recovery is proceeding.

Homestuck:
A quartet of 13-years-olds have had their homes destroyed by meteors, they're in the middle of some weird paradox land and given a mission nobody thinks they can complete, they have a much higher chance of dying than succeeding (and there are timelines in which some of them have already died), and they're destined to screw up the game even worse than they already have. The Rule of Funny seems to be the only thing keeping them from breaking down at this point. Cerebus Syndrome eventually cuts it down considerably, but John remains a good example; he watched Jade sacrifice her dream self to save him, was woken up from dreaming right before being reunited with his father, and is still being told over and over again that You Can't Fight Fate, but none of it seems to have had any significant effect on his optimism.
Dave gets special credit for not batting an eye when discovering his own murdered corpse. He shoves it out the window fearing "Jade might see it and freak out." Afterward he Contemplates His Hands, but doesn't otherwise seem bothered.
In a couple of panels, Nepeta is smiling even as she's sitting next to the corpse of her beloved lusus crushed in a cave-in. She may have known by then that she could resurrect Pounce, in a way, but still.
Sollux goes as far as adopting a more casual attitude after his matesprit is killed, there are two Ax-Crazy psychopaths on the loose and he's been blinded. This plays into Sollux's Gemini theme, with his canonical bipolar disorder taken to an extreme extent.

In Star Trek (2009), it is practically deconstructed, as McCoy chastises Spock over not acting as though the destruction of Vulcan, his home planet, was an important deal to him. Spock responds with a curt, "If you think crew morale would be better served by me wandering the hallways in sorrow, please tell me." As a Vulcan, he is trained from birth to suppress his emotions, and his point is valid as they still had to confront the Big Bad heading towards Earth. But as a ploy to gain control of the Enterprise Kirk antagonizes him so his emotions explode, proving it did have an effect on him.

In the first episode of the UK version of Queer as Folk, Stuart narrates to camera how he lost his virginity: to his PE teacher, when he was eleven years old. While he comments that "I must have been scared to death", he doesn't seem to believe the man raped him (he tells it as though he was the one who instigated the sex), and it's never mentioned again.

Sonic just doesn't seem to "do" angst. Throw him into space, blow up his home, turn him into a werewolf, he'll shrug it off within five seconds and get back to work. The closest thing to angst we've ever seen from him is a brief moment of reflection during the ending of Sonic Adventure 2, but even then he shrugs it off pretty quickly. It's explained in Sonic Unleashed by Sonic having an amount of Heroic Willpower off the charts, so much so that it's the only reason his transformation into the Werehog only gave him a slightly enhanced aggression streak (and he never experiences any real negative influence from it) instead of turning him into a monstrous killing machine. Also, his Image Song It Doesn't Matter reveals he does have fears and is uncertain about what is right or wrong, but there's just so many things to do in life that he'd rather not waste it bogged down by his insecurities. This aspect of his character comes more into focus in the Sonic Storybook Series.

Misfits falls into this category at times, probably due to the fast-paced nature of the show - what with there being only six episodes per season, and a lot of ground to cover in that time. Although characters do angst briefly when something traumatic happens to them, the angst is either rarely mentioned in later episodes, or it leads to them immediately taking a level in badass. For example, Nikki's death instigated the closest thing to a Misfit Mobilization Moment the show has ever had.

James Bond:
Diamonds Are Forever. The film opens with Bond hunting down his wife's murderer, Big Bad Ernst Stavro Blofeld, with the permission and support of MI6 and apparently getting his revenge by making Blofeld drown headfirst into superheated mud. While that should have given him some satisfaction to help him recover, the fact remains that his wife has just been killed on their wedding day, and yet he's back to his old womanizing and deadpanning days in an instant, even laughing at a few cracks Miss Moneypenny makes about engagement rings. This could be due to the Negative Continuity of the series.
In Skyfall, Bond doesn't seem too concerned when Severine was shot, despite saying he would protect her.

Touma in A Certain Magical Index. Due to being Born Unlucky, he suffers literally orders of magnitude more than the other protagonists combined. The main example is in New Testament Volume 9, where he experiences a series of hells, any one of which would be enough to break a normal person, and pulls himself together in order to keep fighting. This is followed by being killed countless times. After it all, he has essentially the same personality as before. He does later have breakdowns when encountering other Magic Gods, but not nearly as severe as you'd expectnote He has no problem living with Othinus, the Magic God who did all of this to him, for example, and he's still able to keep going.

In the Superman: The Animated Series "Little Girl Lost" two-parter, Superman discovers Krypton's devastated sister planet Argos, hears the holographic recording of an Argosian woman's detail of her planet's gradual apocalyptic collapse in the face of Krypton's nearby explosion, and finds the woman's family frozen in stasis, and every member but one, Kara In-Ze, has died. Any trauma Kara might have from watching the death of her entire planet and waking up only to lose her family is forgotten with the "Two Weeks Later" card, because now she can fly through the Kansas sky and that's the most awesome therapy ever.

In Black Butler, Finny's backstory includes him being locked in a stone room and experimented on for an undetermined amount of time. The amount of times he complains about this? ZERO. Every character with a Dark and Troubled Past is subject for this except for Ciel. Ciel's other servants are a mild example, as well as Madam Red and the circus kids.

He grows up as an ostracized outsider, works as a fighter in an underground ring, has his limbs cut off, has to go through the agonising pain of learning to use new limbs, watches his entire world deteriorate, realizes that the entire human race is effectively dead, and then watches the only human he actually has a connection to have their head stuck on the body of his enemy. When he and his mother discovered his father's dead body he didn't show any emotion and looked surprised when he saw his mother crying at the sight. He goes a little insane in the very last episode, but apart from that, he copes a little too well...

In Resident Evil 2 (Remake), Sherry takes the deaths of her parents and surviving a zombie apocalypse rather easily. She even starts talking about Leon and Claire adopting her and how they could get a puppy and a parrot since her mom didn't let her have pets before.

The manga version of Kanamemo starts with Kana's grandmother dying and her running away thinking she is going to be taken away like the furniture. After the first chapter it doesn't really get mentioned again. The anime throws a realistic amount in though.

Silent Hill:
There are a lot of people who won't even play the games alone with the lights turned out, but for some reason, none of the main characters ever just break down screaming. The only comment ever given on the situation comes from Silent Hill 3 when Heather says that she used to be bothered by the corpses lying all over the place, but barely notices them anymore. Granted, once we find out who she is, her resiliency isn't all that surprising. Harry's love for his child, James' near-suicidal need to be with his wife, and Travis' repressed violent urges are the things that drive each of them on in spite of common sense. Henry, meanwhile, seems to simply not process or react any of it, continuing out of sheer stubbornness.
Justified in Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, in which Harry is actually just a figment of his daughter's imagination. She imagines him as a Big Damn Hero (or a doormat, or an abusive alcoholic, or a philanderer, depending on how you play) and so that's what he is. He still shows signs of "oh god, what the hell is going on?"

A minor problem with Mars Attacks!, as the President's daughter is seen at the end, only days after her parents have been killed, presenting Richie with his medal and seems unaffected. She even starts to ask him out. Arguably, Richie himself, who is only briefly affected by the death of his brother.

In American Pop Zalmie's wife Bella is killed in an explosion after she opens a package containing a bomb left by the mafia, everyone reacts in horror except for their son Benny who just glances over at the sight and goes back to playing his piano, barely showing any emotion, he never brings up his mother's death for the rest of his screen time.

The rebels at the end of The Last Jedi are in a far worse off situation than at any time in The Empire Strikes Backnote Where despite setbacks, they managed to successfully evacuate the bulk of their forces by the time Vader landed at Hoth, managed to get new allies in Lando Calrissian and Cloud City by the end, and Vader ended up failing in his plan to topple Palpatine, and suffered no major character deaths. At the end, they lose the bulk of their fleet, much of their materiel, are reduced to a small skeleton that can be housed in the Millennium Falcon, end up suffering key casualties (Admiral Ackbar, Admiral Holdo, Luke Skywalker) and Kylo Ren ends up pulling a coup on the First Order, becoming the most powerful man in the galaxy. There's literally nothing in the way of the First Order to reclaim the Empire. Yet the end of the film soft-pedals this disaster with Leia insisting they have "what they need" and Poe Dameron and others trying to pass off their survival as if it's a great retreat, while the coda at Canto Bight doesn't suggest Tyrant Takes the Helm.

Subverted in the TV movie of A Wrinkle in Time. Upon getting home, the protagonist is terrified that her mother is more interested in talking about proper nutrition for kids rather than the fact that her children have disappeared for days to fight evil disembodied brains in another dimension. It's also what makes her realize she's just in a Lotus-Eater Machine.

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes! has the Incredible Hulk get arrested for a crime he didn't commit. None of the other Avengers show any distress over the loss of one of their oldest and most powerful members, not even the heroes who had become his closest friends over the show's course. They don't seem to bother freeing him until the series finale becomes imminent.

For a completely realistic, thoughtful and adult portrayal of how humans deal with life-threatening danger, try Lewis' Space Trilogy, ironically written prior to Narnia. C. S. Lewis was a veteran of World War I.

Schitt's Creek: Rose family patriarch Johnny Rose was robbed of his fortune and is forced into rural exile through no fault of his own, beyond not keeping close tabs on a corrupt business manager. Johnny's son David and wife Moira experience angst over their situation, but beyond one instance of drowning his sorrows, Johnny remains focused on getting out of his situation through hard work. This is a man who worked hard his whole life and built himself a fortune and whose only sin seems to have been to overindulge his wife and children. Yet, he accepts his fate with little angst.

Harry Potter:
A lot of characters, major and minor, both in the books and the films seem to have no trouble getting over accidents, mutations and near death experiences that should have traumatized them for life or for a very lengthy period of time that would have required a lot of counseling for most people.
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Barty Crouch is found dead in the woods and... no one cares. It's never mentioned again. Not that his death should inspire all that much angst note although he is a much nicer character in the film, but it's a fairly important plot point in the book, and besides, a Ministry official showed up dead in the forest. Someone want to... look into that?
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: We see Sirius die, in a super dramatic, gut-wrenching scene. Then we finish the battle. Then we see Harry and Dumbledore have less than a five-minute conversation. Harry barely looks upset. That's it for the rest of the series. Drastically different from the book, in which Harry trashes Dumbledore's office and yells at him. He then spends most of the remainder of the year in solitude, until Luna comforts him...and even then, it takes him a couple of weeks to get over it.

Kotori's mother in Love Live! at the end of season 1 seems perfectly at ease with her daughter ditching her plans to study abroad for a promising fashion career at the very last minute (as in, while in the airport waiting for her flight with her escorts) to rejoin her fellow idols. During the concert on the same day that Kotori was supposed to leave, Mrs. Minami can be seen in the background with a warm, sincere smile on her face. You'd think she'd be a little angry, if not outright furious, given the preparations, costs, and faculty talks she went through to ensure a prosperous future for her daughter.

In A Brother's Price Jerin does angst after he is kidnapped and a woman sat on his face without clothes in-between, i.e. sort of oral rape without actual penetration, but only because he fears he is Defiled Forever due to consensual sex he suspects he might have had in a night he doesn't remember. After he is told that all is well, the woman he thinks he slept with was his bride, anyway, and they didn't even have sex, and he is welcomed back by his wives to be he quickly recovers. May or may not be justified, regarding how serious of an issue one regards the thing that happened. Other protagonists show realistic angst over the death of their relatives. Ren, for example, is plagued by nightmares of the night her sisters died in an explosion. Jerin's toddler sisters don't want to let him go, for fear he will never return, "like daddy"; their father died a couple of months ago, and Jerin was promoted to parent. The youngest doesn't quite understand that, unlike her father, Jerin will come back to visit.

On Top Gear (UK), the three presenters allegedly have a pact that, should any of them die while filming the show, the remaining pair would appear at the beginning of the next episode, make a mournful comment, pause for a moment of silence, and then say "Anyway," and cheerily continue with the show. When Richard Hammond was seriously injured in 2006, Jeremy Clarkson commented that the joke didn't seem funny anymore, but after he recovered the pact seems to be back on.

One issue in X-Factor (2006) was all about Doctor Leonard Samson going through the team in his role as a psychiatrist. This revealed that Monet kept all her feelings bottled up inside because she feels she needs to put up a brave face, and she is afraid of losing control of herself, especially with how her brother ended up evil. Meanwhile, Siryn appeared to take her father's death in Deadly Genesis oddly lightly. She explained that he was bound to come back from the dead, given how that happens constantly in the Marvel universe. Samson is left speechless. Whether that is a perfectly reasonable stance or unhealthy denial is left up to the reader to decide.

Overwatch:
Tracer is Unstuck in Time due to an experiment gone wrong. She's effectively a ghost that blinks in an out of existence irregularly without a special device she has to wear at all times on a harness. Despite this, she's incredibly chipper and only seems to notice the benefits of her situation now that she's a partial Time Master.
Mei has a distinctly bubbly and happy attitude, so you wouldn't guess that she actually has one of the darkest backstories of any of the heroes. She's a scientist who was stationed in Antarctica when a polar storm hit, and she along with all of the other scientists stationed there entered cryostasis in an attempt to survive. Years later, Mei was the only survivor as all of the other scientist's cryogenic chambers had failed.

Dwarves in Dwarf Fortress have an odd way of measuring their moods; it's a strict positive/negative thing. Did their wife and children just get killed by a Forgotten Beast? This can be balanced out by eating in a really nice communal dining room, sleeping in a nice bedroom, and obtaining a well-made pair of socks, leaving them at least "quite content" overall. Some Alternative Character Interpretation is that quite content is more "coping with life" than it is "sort of happy"; at anything below "quite content" Dwarves are at risk of snapping in one way or another, throwing a potentially Fortress destroying tantrum, being Driven to Suicide or going permanently Ax-Crazy. Or going into a fell mood and killing some random dwarf.

Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM):
Compared to the games' usual scenarios, Dr. Robotnik is treated far more seriously, and his method of robotizing characters, which had no known method of reversal, was considered tantamount to being killed. While there are genuine moments of heartbreak and emotion in the series, the cast often acts less horrified than they should; "Sonic Boom" and "Blast To The Past" for example feature one-shot characters being captured and robotized, and in both cases a main character mourns over the loss for only a few minutes.
Uncle Chuck, a victim of roboticization who regained his free will, nonchalantly mentioned that the process left his mind completely conscious but with no control over his body for the decade it was under effect. He shows not one sign of issue over it.

Tsali barely angsts at all, even though he has a backstory that could rival Guts and is implied to be going through minor And I Must Scream. He just kills stuff instead. Discussed in the rewrite, when he tells Trinity that It Gets Easier and that moping over the past is a waste of time.

Avatar: The Last Airbender:
Aang discovers that he's The Chosen One at 12 years old and his home is now a a long-abandoned ruin. Every single person he's ever met, and the animals too, - have died save for one wacky genius king and a pet bison. His Refusal of the Call gets him and his bison frozen for a century and leads to him waking up clueless about the fact the world is engulfed in war and he has about nine months to master three elements and save the world from utter doom. The writers dealt with it by making Aang The Pollyanna. In a reminder of why this trope exists, whenever Aang goes through a Rant-Inducing Slight, fans complained about how whiny, mean and OOC he was and made cracks about "Aangst", even though he'd dealt with much worse without whining.
Katara has a breakdown at the end of "The Puppetmaster" episode after learning the Dangerous Forbidden Technique against her will. In the next episode, she seems to have gotten over it, probably since she now has the means to exact her revenge. Or so we (or she) think(s).

However, it's Big Smoke who he puts the focus on, and even when Smoke's betrayal is mentioned by several other characters besides CJ, Ryder is completely left out of the subject, and he is even unceremoniously killed off midway through the story and completely forgotten about even by Sweet, who CJ didn't even mention anything about Ryder to.

The Legend of Zelda:
In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link doesn't seem the least bit upset over opening the gate to the Sacred Realm, allowing Ganondorf to seize the Triforce and plunge Hyrule into darkness, nor does he seem too upset over losing all his friends due to being sent back into time to before he met them. Then again... The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess averts this as the Hero Of Time, now dead and leading the new Link as the Hero's Shade, is incredibly bitter over not receiving recognition as a hero due to none of the events occurring in the Child timeline.
The Sleeping Zelda in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link has been asleep for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Everyone she has ever loved is long dead and she is stuck in a strange, new world with the only known family being her distant relative who shares her name. Despite this, she's completely unfazed when awoken.
To be fair, we only see her for a few seconds after her awakening. She may well have had a complete nervous breakdown once she was told what had happened.
In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Champions seem on the whole remarkably cheery despite having been killed in the Great Calamity and trapped as ghosts in their Divine Beasts for a century. Only Mipha is shown to have been truly upset by this, having been "awash in a pool of tears" until Link came to free her. Revali is more annoyed that Link took so long than anything. Daruk and Urbosa are especially happy and encouraging when guiding Link through their Divine Beasts.

In Mass Effect, Liara takes her mother's Face–Heel Turn and death in stride, and is actually surprised if Shepard asks her if she needs any help dealing with it. She does, however, have a very anguished reaction when Benezia regains control of herself late in the fight and again as she is dying, and after Benezia dies, Ashley notes that Liara probably heartbroken. In the third game, fondly talks about childhood memories with the implication that she misses her mother.

Jacob Taylor of Mass Effect 2 is almost entirely unaffected by what he discovers during his personal mission, beyond briefly getting very angry during the mission but then proceeding to cope quickly, effectively, and without any external help. This is possibly lampshaded in the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC, where the files on Jacob suggest that, despite his combat skills, the real reason he was put on the Normandy was for the "stabilising effects of his personality" in the Dysfunction Junction that makes up the rest of the team.

When the gang in Seinfeld hear that Susan, George's fiance, has died from licking low-grade wedding invitation envelopes, they all shrug and go back about their business. Especially George, who angsts far more about the work he needs to do because of her death. This is a case of Crosses the Line Twice. In his case, it helps convince others (such as her family) that he murdered Susan.

In the little known game Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer, the main character Brave sees his home destroyed, his best friend Meadow Flower turned into a sort-of zombie... thing, has his mentor, Grey Bear, die in his arms, after shielding Brave from an attack, and is forced to flee for his life. All in the same scene. Brave is upset about it for about a scene or so, but then cheerfully goes on his way to find the Spirit Dancer.

In Mass Effect 2, Shepard seems to take finding out that they have been dead for two years rather in stride. While it's talked about briefly at the beginning — and again when characters from the last game react to seeing their old commander alive — Shepard seems to completely avoid any of the angst or existential crises that one might expect from someone who has killed and brought back to life; and, depending on your dialogue choices, seems downright chipper for most of the story. This can be attributed to how Shepard is completely and utterly focused on the kidnapped human's mystery. Given quiet time in Mass Effect 3, they start questioning their own existence, wondering if they're just a Tomato in the Mirror.
Jacob Taylor of Mass Effect 2 is almost entirely unaffected by what he discovers during his personal mission, beyond briefly getting very angry during the mission but then proceeding to cope quickly, effectively, and without any external help.

Lampshaded by Mordin: despite his loyalty mission forcing him into conflict with his ex-protege and causing him to question his entire life's work, the next time you talk to him he's as chipper as ever. He happily explains that salarians work through emotions very fast, so he's already dealt with all his angst on the flight back to the ship. Mass Effect 3, however, shows that Mordin has not quite gotten over all of it, as he leaks Eve's existence to Wrex and stubbornly goes through with the plan to cure the genophage, fully aware that doing so will kill him. If you [[spoiler:did not report the sabotage to Mordin and ask him why he's going this far, he'll say that "I MADE A MISTAKE!"]]
Used interestingly after the Suicide Mission by your crew if you save them from liquefaction at the hands of the Collectors. Most seem just fine later, a little shaken up but generally fine. But when you ask Kelly Chambers if she's all right, she goes into a horrifying flashback and is clearly, obviously not — and yet she pushes this back and doesn't show it otherwise. In Mass Effect 3 it is possible to meet Kelly again, and she explains that she's having a delayed reaction to the trauma, and can't bring herself to set foot on the Normandy again because of it.
If you comply with Tali's request in her Loyalty mission and refuse to share the information about her late father's experiments, resulting in her being convicted of treason and exiled from the Migrant Fleet, she's perfectly fine with it, seeing it as preferable to the alternative(which will cost you the chance to earn her loyalty).

Dungeons & Dragons: A group of preteens barely seem upset at all over being trapped in a harsh fantasy world where everything is trying to kill them and their mentor is unhelpful in the extreme. The one exception is Eric, who is always portrayed as a whiner who needs to snap out of it already. The Complainer Is Always Wrong, even if it's about impending bloody death. A notable exception is at the start of "The Dragon's Graveyard", where after losing yet another way home the entire group is sunk in depression, and the youngest breaks down in tears.

A few of the characters of Degrassi: The Next Generation have this, but Toby especially. He is consistently picked on, ignored by his unrequited crushes, and has two of his only friends killed by school violence, but seems no worse for wear by the next episode he's in.

Gunnerkrigg Court:
For the first several chapters, Annie treats the subject of her father's abandonment with cool apathy, at most. One of the comic's most heartwarming scenes is when she trusts Kat enough to break down crying in front of her and stop repressing her feelings of loneliness.
Although this is played straight, weirdly enough, when she and Ysengrin talk about his attempt to murder her. Seriously, it's like five lines of dialogue and then she stops distrusting him completely and they're back to being friends. Made all the stranger because Ysengrin's motivation for doing the above spoiler was so flimsy as to be psychopathic. Of course, Annie's odd choices in who to trust and who to distrust were a well-established character trait by that point.

In Planet Sheen, Sheen doesn't seem at all worried about getting back to Earth at all. Sure he writes a letter to his grandmother in several episodes, but that's it. What about his father? What about Libby? He doesn't at all seem to care that his friends are missing him back on Earth or that he'll probably never see Jimmy and the others again. Nesmith even lampshades this.

One of the segments in Heavy Metal features Den, who gets snatched from Earth and flung to some far-distant planet, never to see his home again. The fact that he's turned from a scrawny nerd into a perfect physical specimen who gets to have sex with hot babes sorta takes the sting away.

Sly Cooper:
For a guy who saw his parents murdered in front of him, saw the Thievius Racoonus torn apart, saw his friends being held captive, been captured a couple of times himself, saw his friend (Bentley) get crippled by Clock-La at the end of the second game, amongst other stuff, Sly doesn't show much angst.
Bentley is remarkably angst-free about being stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, and though he does show one instance of insecurity about it, it seems he is sufficiently confident in his abilities as The Smart Guy of the team to compensate for his physical weakness. Being fairly frail to start with, and fixing up his wheelchair with a mini-armoury of gadgets might help with that.

The Lord of the Rings:
Hobbits have this quality, mental resiliency. Their ability to shake their troubles and get past horrible experiences is often mentioned. One example is Merry and Pippin strolling around in Fangorn forest being curious about their surroundings and seemingly with hardly a care in the world. This after they've been abducted for the purpose of torture (and watched their friend die trying to save them), been handled roughly to say the least by the uruk-hai, and nearly been killed in a battle. During Merry's healing in Return of the King, Merry mentions that Hobbits deal with turmoil by trying to react as if all is mostly well. This sorta hits home once you read "The Sea-Bell" and realise Frodo is still suffering years after he returned to the shire. Frodo is probably one of the best-written examples of a Hurting Hero.
King Théoden is as calm about the recent death of his son Théodred as if it had happened years ago. The Movie adds a scene of him heart-breakingly mourning his son.
The Rohirrim tend to be kinda Viking about the whole 'death in battle' thing. "Hail the victorious dead!" is again movie continuity only, but it's definitely true to the essence of the culture.

Star Trek:
Star Trek: The Next Generation tends to have this as a result of the Reset Button.
A typical example is the episode where Picard experiences the planet he grew up on destroyed and everyone he loved killed via implanted memories. There's a brief shot at the end when he looks sad, but then it's like it never happened. Ronald Moore said that the episode was sort of an accident; they were just concerned with making a good hour long story (and it is considered one of the best of the series) and didn't realize until it aired just how traumatized Picard should have been afterwards. They resolved to make a few continuity nods and then just continue.
"The Best of Both Worlds" makes it seem as if Picard is just going to shrug off being assimilated and turned into Locutus, despite looking a little haunted at the final shot. Nope, the very next episode, "Family" (Fan Nick Name: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part III") has Picard collapsing in tears about how the Borg essentially raped him and forced him to experience every moment. You might think it's Catharsis Factor in that episode, but nope. Fast forward to Star Trek: First Contact, and we find Jean-Luc has not gotten over it at all, and it's hinted he has nightmares about it all the time.
Played straight for Picard in "Chain of Command". Picard does express to Troi at the end of the episode that he is still feeling the emotional impact of his torture at the hands of the Cardassians, but by the next episode, it's as if it never happened. This carries through even when he's interacting with Cardassians in later episodes.
The episode "The Wounded" introduced Chief O'Brien's former CO, Captain Maxwell, whose wife and children were killed During the War with the Cardassians. Picard believes Maxwell's current unauthorized attacks on Cardassian ships are motivated by vengeance, but O'Brien insists Maxwell remained stoic and in good humour after his family's deaths and he must have a good reason for attacking the Cardassians. Turns out they're both right.
Star Trek: The Original Series
Captain Kirk is pretty bad about this. The most grating example has to be in "Operation: Annihilate!" where Kirk's only brother and his sister-in-law die horribly, leaving their young son an orphan, only a week after Edith Keener's death. Not only does the episode end on a bright, chipper note but we never even find out what happened to Kirk's nephew.
Over the seasons, various crew members have been mindwiped, tortured, killed, mind raped, and so on. None of it ever gets mentioned later.
In "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Gary Mitchell, who is made out to be Kirk's good friend from years back goes mad from receiving godlike powers and Kirk is forced to kill him. No mention is made of it afterwards.
Not to mention the various crew members (usually wearing red shirts) who regularly die, often horribly, under Kirk's command, often with little or no reaction by the main cast.
Star Trek: Enterprise:
T'Pol after her mother's death. Then again, she's a Vulcan, so she was probably repressing it. On the other hand, Trip still feels the death of his sister several episodes later and has nightmares about it.
In an alternate future episode, Earth has been destroyed by the Xindi, but everyone seems fine with it. Archer feels sad for about a minute.
Interestingly, Soval, despite being a Vulcan, seems genuinely sad about Admiral Forrest's death. For about an episode. Of course as a Vulcan, the fact that it lasted that long is really saying something.
Hoshi is Mind Raped by the Xindi Reptilians but suffers for no more than an episode after this.
Star Trek: Voyager: Harry Kim basically undergoes a seven-year Trauma Conga Line while lost in the Delta Quadrant — ranging from torment by a Monster Clown to repeatedly getting killed — and yet remains one of the most bright-eyed optimists on the ship.

What about Serah of Final Fantasy XIII-2? At the start of the game, she's already depressed about Lightning missing and Snow somewhere in Gran Pulse. During the course of the game, she found out that she has the Eyes of Etro, meaning her life span shortens every time she changes the timeline. She also found out that Snow acquired a l'cie mark, Lightning is in Valhalla (a place she can't leave easily) and the crystal pillar is in danger of breaking. Despite all that, she stays cheerful and optimistic. Then we found out that after defeating Caius, all the time paradoxes get resolved and the only timeline they can return to is 500AF. This means that the people Serah know in 2AF are dead, Snow may or may not be in the same timeline, Lightning may or may not leave Valhalla, Noel may vanish and she may die. She probably knows these but she still went ahead with a smile.

In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Arthur Dent watches as everyone he ever loved or cared about (except Trillian) plus the human race destroyed right before his eyes. He is half of the existing human race, with absolutely no hope (at that point) of rebuilding the species or ever going home. All over a bureaucratic snafu by an uncaring galactic government, and he receives absolutely no sympathy from other characters for the genocide of his race. And this is played for laughs. The story rolls on, Dent doesn't seem too broken up about it (it might not have even happened as far as Trillian is concerned) and it's all handwaved at the end.

Showa Kamen Rider series usually has the riders treat their angst relatively quickly, Heisei Riders are a mixed bag.
Some of the Showa series (for non-Japanophiles, "Showa era" means "up to nearly the end of The '80s.") have angst as an Informed Attribute; sometimes the episode ends with Kotaro hoping to get Nobuhiko back someday but laughing and having fun with his friends for now at the end of an episode as the narrator assures us that despite the soul-searing agony that is the torturous existence of a Kamen Rider, our poor tragic hero shall valiantly soldier on. It's frankly hilarious.
Eiji, on the other hand, is an upbeat guy, but the deeper wounds left on him by his experience in that war zone are very much important to the plot.
Gentaro lost his parents when he was little, but when his friends find out about this he says it doesn't bother him much because he still has happy memories of them, and every day he tries to make as many friends as possible, just like they asked. This is a strong contrast to other Heisei Riders like Kenzaki and Haruto who also lost their parents when they were little, but still suffer a form of survivor's guilt at the start of their shows.
In Kamen Rider Kiva, Wataru has a party over his broken heart.

Super Mario Bros.:
Princess Peach has been captured by Bowser, and occasionally other villains, numerous times but it never gets to her.
A specific-game example: In the 3DS installment of the Mario Golf series, most characters tend to overreact to getting Bogeys or worse. Diddy Kong, on the other hand, simply shrugs and eats a banana nonchalantly.

Peter Pan is legendary for this. Pirates and Indians are fun to read about, and some children would want to have adventures with them. But most children would decide enough was enough after the third time they nearly get killed. The Darlings, by contrast, are having the time of their lives in Neverland, and never wanted to go home until they realized their mother was feeling awful. Not everybody would want to be a kid forever, either — the ending suggests that being eternally young isn't all it's cracked up to be. The books lay out that part of why Peter is the one child who will never grow up is because of his immaturity. When an older Wendy asks him what happened to Tinker Bell, he has absolutely no memory of her although the Fairy was a loyal companion. She died seasons ago and faded from Peter's mind to protect him from growing up. Similarly, the longer the Darlings stay in Neverland the harder it gets for them to want to remember their old lives, thus explaining the missing angst. By having Peter avoid getting too angst-filled, it sure does invoke it in the reader.

Gargoyles begins with a massacre that wipes out the entire gargoyle population of Castle Wyvern, except for three young brothers, the clan leader, their aged father, and one pet. All their other friends, siblings, children, fathers, and mothers (gargoyles have multiples of each) are dead along with the leader's wife, and the survivors find the castle littered with the dismembered pieces of their corpses. Then they're put into a magic sleep and wake up 1000 years later in modern New York, completely Fish out of Temporal Water, and one of the first things they learn is that the clan's eggs are gone and as far as they know, they are the last of their species on Earth, and there are no females left. Almost immediately, they learn that the leader's wife actually survived somehow, but she and their only human friend in the world had betrayed the clan and caused the massacre, and she's now a genocidal maniac out to murder her husband. Yet after the first couple episodes, they don't go through the mourning, angst, or survivor guilt one would expect after such trauma.

The Sleeping Zelda in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link has been asleep for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Everyone she has ever loved is long dead and she is stuck in a strange, new world with the only known family being her distant relative who shares her name. Despite this, she's completely unfazed when awoken.
To be fair, we only see her for a few seconds after her awakening. She may well have had a complete nervous breakdown once she was told what had happened.

Mitsumi from Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure! had an overwhelmingly horrible childhood, what with being a Creepy Child orphan who was taken in by Big Bad Cyrus and trained to be what essentially is a Child Soldier until she left in her teenage years. She doesn't seem to have too many issues though.

Zidane of Final Fantasy IX is surprisingly well adjusted for a 16-year-old orphan with a tail that gets dragged along to multiple genocides over the course of the game. It's genuinely shocking that his true origins can actually cause a Heroic BSoD, which he still gets over rather quickly. Even the adults in this game aren't that well put-together. And while finding out his origins did freak him out a bit, he immediately pushed it aside and turned on his creator while citing The Power of Friendship. The BSOD only occurred after his creator apparently ripped his soul out, and it took the rest of the party's Friendship speeches to help him recover.

When Kotaku reviewed Final Fantasy XV, they actually criticised it for having a traumatic setup where a young man's father gets murdered, and then straight away turning into a goofy road trip between a group of guys messing around and making terrible puns.

The Millennium Trilogy:
Played with in the case of Lisbeth Salander. On the one hand, she has been deeply marked by her terrible childhood experiences, but on the other hand, this has made her pretty much impervious to any later trauma. Her reaction to being brutally raped and tortured for an entire night is to very calmly get revenge and then move on without any sign of being hurt by it. Her reaction to being shot in the head and buried alive is likewise to get revenge, and then function pretty much exactly as she has always done.
Other characters seem to have reasonable immediate reactions to trauma, and go into shock or have delayed reactions quite realistically, but do not seem to have any permanent mental scars from their experiences. Considering everything Mikael has gone through by the end of the trilogy, this is quite extraordinary.

In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Golden Ticket tour group learns how dangerous Wonka's Factory can be — not to mention how nonchalant their guide is — when Augustus Gloop winds up sent to who-knows-where via the pipes, but it doesn't dampen their enthusiasm for the rest of the tour, even as further members are eliminated in similarly absurd disasters. No matter what they witness, no one ever asks to leave if they aren't directly affected by events, and the Audience Surrogate is having the time of his life. Granted, the disasters are all played for Black Comedy and the victims are all repulsive brats and coddling parents. The 2013 stage adaptation plays with this trope a little, again for laughs — even though the party is horrified by what happens to Augustus (and in this version it's suggested he might not survive), when the impatient Mr. Wonka asks them "Anybody want to go home?", no one answers in the affirmative! As the party further dwindles, though, anxiety creeps into the wonder of those still standing...

Baccano!: Multiple:
Deconstructed with Elmer Albatross, whose perpetually cheery attitude in the face of everything and blithe expectation that everyone else will act the same comes across to other characters as callous and sometimes downright creepy.
The novels subvert it with Firo. While he initially seems pretty chill about acquiring the Ghost Memory of a 300-year-old villain, the mask eventually cracks after a couple of years and he admits that he's not only confused and disgusted by some of the things that he remembers, but also terrified that Szilard's sadism will eventually become his own.

Luke Skywalker in A New Hope regarding the deaths of his family. What's that you say? He certainly did wangst about Obi-Wan and Darth Vader? No, I don't mean them. I mean Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen. You know, the people who raised him from a baby. Okay, he grieved for them for... 15 seconds screen time? He seemed over it by the time they reached Mos Eisley. In Legacy Luke finally talks about his Aunt and Uncle's deaths to Cade who's in their old home. More or less, at first he wanted to make the Empire pay but knew he couldn't stop and angst about it. Later, when he became a Jedi, he accepted their deaths and knew they're part of the Living Force now, which they are.

In Danganronpa, the end of a class trial, in which a student is executed for killing a classmate, is generally considered a tragedy. Most of the class feels bad for the dead students, even if they didn't like the killer or victim, and the survivors spend some time consumed by grief and despair, especially if one of the dead was someone they cared about. In New Hope University: Major In Murder, the rest of the cast barely reacts to the first execution, save for Rodrigo calling Monokuma a "monster", and in the aftermath, Saya's more upset about Lucina harshly calling her out on her manipulative tactics than she is about either of the deaths. Granted, she did faint when faced with the victim's severed head, but that may be because it was an especially gruesome and shocking sight.

In the fourth book of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the character Phil remains quite upbeat for a guy who is working in a lumber mill, is paid with coupons, and has gum for lunch every day. When his leg is crushed, he says, "Well, this isn't too bad. My left leg is broken, but at least I'm right-legged." Somebody comments, "Gee, I thought he'd say something more along the lines of 'Aaaaah! My leg! My leg!'"

The protagonists of Wings of Fire are young children thrown into the middle of a war, who have spent nearly all of their lives trapped in a cave for their own safety. And because of their importance to the prophecy, everyone they meet tries to either kill them, kidnap them, or use them for political ends. Yet they remain remarkably casual about this.

A French Village:
Lucienne, aside from looking somewhat distraught on the morning after, seems unaffected by her rape. It's never once shown to affect her later.
Marie has no problem with shooting her husband in cold blood, despite not being ever portrayed as cold-hearted or otherwise fine with killing. Sure, he had been abusive and nearly killed her lover before, but it seems to be very out of character overall. She never even shows a twinge as their sons ask where he is.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials:
None of the other kids resent Thomas for getting Winston killed or call him out for forcing them to fend for themselves in a desert.
Likewise after Theresa betrays them to WCKD, Thomas immediately decides to go back and help. He doesn't show any angst about all the people who got killed as a result. This is in stark contrast to the book where, although he forgives her, he can't trust her anymore. What's more is that in the book Theresa is being forced to betray them by WICKED, and in the film, she just chooses to do so.

The Dolls in Dollhouse seem to be like this on the surface. When not programmed, they are essentially childlike and complacent to those in authority over them, with not much will outside that, to a dangerous degree. For instance, Sierra seems to be able to shake off being repeatedly raped by her handler pretty well.

Alice in Wonderland is trapped in a World Gone Mad, but she doesn't react as badly as many real people would. Granted, she's dreaming; she can't be expected to behave normally in a dream. She does angst, one time, which results in her tears flooding the hallway and her having to swim to safety. Can't blame her for trying to avoid that again.

In The Spectacular Spider Man, one of Peter Parker's oldest friends, Eddie Brock, becomes the supervillain Venom. You'd expect Peter to be very upset over the fate of his "best bro" and try to reason with him, with the hope of redeeming him. Instead, he spends surprisingly little time dwelling on this issue and treats him as just another villain in subsequent fights. It's made pretty clear though that Peter doesn't think he's fighting Eddie, rather the symbiote who's warped Eddie's mind. He refers to Venom as "the symbiote", and does his best to get the symbiote off him, and attempts to get psychiatric care for Eddie afterward.

Frequently in Professional Wrestling. Your brother turns on you, destroys your entire life, kills your dog? Some little creep from your past tries to cripple your entire family? Your best friend mauls you to the point of hospitalization and tries to steal your son from you? Some freak with a beard killed your unborn baby? Eh, within a few months you'll have forgotten all about it and probably be best friends again (and again and again). Maybe you can even get Beard-Boy to read a poem at your wedding!

Ed Jr. from The Mutilator grew up with a crazy abusive alcoholic father who would beat him, and one day while fooling around with one of his father's guns accidentally shoots and kills his mother. In the present day he displays no signs of trauma or PTSD, he seems like a happy upbeat young man hanging out with his friends. While he does bring up to them how much of an abusive nutcase his father is, he seems to harbor no ill will towards him, that is until he starts murdering his friends.

Happens in Derailed, due to it being a collaborative story with minimal communication between the different authors. Celestia explains to Octavia the relationship they had before Octavia's injuries and amnesia. Octavia is somewhat taken aback, and she tells the hospital staff that she doesn't want Celestia to visit again in the next few days. The next section is written by a different author—it's less than a day later, and Octavia is hanging out with Celestia in the castle like it's no big deal.

Captain Marvel was made of this trope. Billy Batson had his parents murdered when he was around 8 years old, lost his sister, and was given over to his uncle Ebenezer Batson, who was his only living blood relative. Ebenezer only kept Billy around long enough to legally secure the boy's inheritance as his own, and then threw Billy out onto the street, leaving him homeless. But instead of becoming bitter about his circumstances, Billy instead became more empathic to the suffering of others, maintained his positive outlook, and refused to let his bad situation ruin his ideals or his sense of wonder and hope. It was precisely these qualities that made him worthy to wield the power the wizard Shazam bestowed upon him. It's also one reason why many fans dislike the Nu-52 Billy Batson, who has done a complete 180 and is an angry, petulant little brat consumed by Wangst.

Robin from Robin Hood BBC's retelling of the legend spends two seasons head over heels in love with Marian. Then when Marian is murdered, he gets over his grief in one episode. And in Series Three, the hero who declared he'd love Marian forever gets two new love interests without any sign he misses his first. Also, when he was a little kid, there seems to have been no long-term effects after his father is burnt to death in a fire; approximately two minutes after it occurred, Kid!Robin is throwing a party for the peasants.

Bambi: The death of Bambi's mother is instantly followed by a Time Skip to the first spring of Bambi's adulthood, which opens with the Mood Whiplash of a cheery song with chirping, dancing birds and flowers. Any grieving process Bambi might have gone through is kept offscreen.

Static of the Milestone Comics was created in an attempt of capturing a more modern interpretation of Spider-Man. Virgil carries similarly wit and banter but none of the angst. He becomes a Super Hero, not because of dead parents or to follow in his mentor's footsteps. He does it just because he knows right from wrong. The animated series plays with it a bit more. Virgil still is a superhero because of a sense of justice, but he also occasionally angsts over his dead mother, who he only just remembers and misses, at least until a Time Travel episode.

The Picture of Dorian Gray: Gray's fiancée commits suicide. Later that day, he enjoys the opera with his friend. The next day, he claims that he was simply in control of his emotions and, after he had been done with the emotion of sadness, he simply moved on. Leads to a funny conversation with Basil when he accuses him of being kind enough to console him but showing frustration that he is already consoled.

Demo Reel usually averted the trope, playing abusive pasts and issues dead straight, but in "The Review Must Go On", Tacoma, Karl, Quinn, and Rebecca are disquietingly serene over losing Donnie and finding out they never actually existed. The Nostalgia Critic was bothered by this too in his review of it.

Star Trek: The Original Series
Captain Kirk is pretty bad about this. The most grating example has to be in "Operation: Annihilate!" where Kirk's only brother and his sister-in-law die horribly, leaving their young son an orphan, only a week after Edith Keener's death. Not only does the episode end on a bright, chipper note but we never even find out what happened to Kirk's nephew.
Over the seasons, various crew members have been mindwiped, tortured, killed, mind raped, and so on. None of it ever gets mentioned later.
In "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Gary Mitchell, who is made out to be Kirk's good friend from years back goes mad from receiving godlike powers and Kirk is forced to kill him. No mention is made of it afterwards.
Not to mention the various crew members (usually wearing red shirts) who regularly die, often horribly, under Kirk's command, often with little or no reaction by the main cast.

Juudai/Jaden Yuki from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Until season 3, he laughs at everything. At the end of season 2, while he's fighting the epitome of evil, with nothing but a children's card game standing in the way of the destruction of the universe, he still tries to convince Evil Sartorius that card games are all about fun. In the manga, however, he's never quite as innocent as in the early anime, but he never gets as broken as in the late anime. He's seen his friend and dueling idol, Koyo, go into a coma, had to once fight a duel with Sho/Syrus in which either he would lose his deck or Sho would get expelled and has had to fight several Shadow Duels over the course of the series. He angsts over his issues when he takes the time to reflect on them.

In Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Percy's mother is killed right in front of him by a Minotaur. It's later revealed that she's not really dead and is eventually brought back, but during the time he thinks she's really gone Percy is remarkably blasé about it and just throws himself into learning about his powers and his sea-god father. This trope is half the reason it's considered an In Name Only adaptation by most of the fans, as Percy's entire Character Development in the book involved him mourning his mother, hating the gods for getting her caught up in this, and then gradually coming to accept that there was a bigger picture.

In Mother 3, every single one of the protagonists has royally messed-up lives, and don't angst a bit about it (except Flint and maybe Salsa, but that's a bit hard to tell since he's a monkey). Lucas was a crybaby before getting an angst-worthy life and then became nice, brave and almost selfless. Before the game, the people of Tazmily Village were blissfully unaware of "sadness" so it's not unheard of that they wouldn't know how to angst about it.

They Live. The hero learns that the world is a vast lie created by aliens in human guise that live among us. So he stares one of them in the face and says, "you look like your face fell in the cheese dip back in 1957!" Part of it is due to the hinting that Piper's character is having an I Knew It! attitude.

Futurama:
Philip J. Fry takes all of five seconds to get over the fact that he's a thousand years in the future and all the people he knew are long since dead ("I'll never see any of them again... YAHOO!"). While entirely justified by both his previous life sucking hard and him being a crazy buffoon, him agonising about it in a few episodes makes it weird when it goes away after awhile.
In the final episode "Meanwhile," Leela seemingly kills Professor Farnsworth and neither she nor anyone else cares in the slightest.
It's a borderline Running Gag that Bender is functionally immune to And I Must Scream situations, and seems to actively enjoy being thrown into isolation for millennia.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Barty Crouch is found dead in the woods and... no one cares. It's never mentioned again. Not that his death should inspire all that much angst note although he is a much nicer character in the film, but it's a fairly important plot point in the book, and besides, a Ministry official showed up dead in the forest. Someone want to... look into that?

Vyse from Skies of Arcadia, to a really, really amazing degree. To the point where crashing on a deserted island after seemingly losing his friends in a burning vessel...Vyse just shrugs and treats it as a vacation. At one point, after his base of operations is razed to the ground, the player has an option to have him claim to one of his builders that they needed a renovation anyway, which completely shocks her due to how bizarrely optimistic his statement is. The game's script treats his demeanor as out of the ordinary even for the universe it's in, but also points out several times that his attitude is also what makes him an effective leader and captain. In the Gamecube "Legends" release choosing the noblest and optimistic statement in any scenario is scored and affects the unlocking of some of the new content. Notably, towards the very end of the game, he does have a moment where he nearly does crack though it took an apocalyptic genocide for him to get that far. Fortunately, before he does snap, all the people he helped immediately show up to vow to fight with him and break him out of his funk.

This trope defines Magnus, Merle, and Taako throughout first few arcs of The Adventure Zone. They destroy a city, commit several murders, come close to death, are inducted into a secret organization, and lose friends for over 30 episodes before any one of them shows any sign of caring. As the show goes on and the stakes get higher, this is phased out somewhat (but not completely).

Final Fantasy:
In Final Fantasy III, one of your Guest Star Party Members, Aria, performs a Heroic Sacrifice and dies in Luneth's arms. After they all black out and wake up in town later, no further mention is made, not even by Luneth, who Aria was closest to.
In Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, hero Benjamin exclaims in shock when his village is destroyed, but he seems more irritated about it than anything else, and doesn't bring it up again for the rest of the game.
Final Fantasy VII:
Red XIII is introduced as one of Hojo's research specimens and was being experimented on for use in breeding experiments. It's unclear how long he has been a specimen for, but it's suggested it's for years. Other party members subjected to Hojo's experimentation (Vincent and Cloud) were deeply traumatised by it. The moodiest Red XIII gets about it is a brief Fauxshadowing scene where he mentions to Tifa that he's worried he'll start to go mad like the Clones, and Tifa tells him to be strong - other than that, he's more concerned with his own dorky persona issues than the horrific body horror in his history. This may be the result of how a lot of Red XIII's planned material was cut. It might also be a character choice, as upon witnessing his grandfather's death, Red XIII responds with giggling denial.
Aeris's death was a very dark event for video games at the time and is still unusual in that it focuses on loss and emptiness rather than Heroic Sacrifice. As Cloud points out, he nearly killed her himself and would have done if his party members hadn't distracted him at the critical moment. The party continues on their journey North, where they go to a town full of cute snowmen and children in bobble hats, have a slapsticky fight with Elena and travel to the next dungeon by doing a comedic obstacle course on a rainbow-coloured snowboard. The characters don't actually comment about Aeris or mourn for her at all until the party runs out of obvious things to do, leading Cloud to start wondering about what Aeris's plan had been.
Every playable character have some deep issues that bother them. Aeris, whiling having her own issues as well, is the most well adjusted of the group. Despite the fact that her mother died protecting her while fleeing from Shinra, constantly being hunted down by Shinra, and growing up in the Midgar slums with her adoptive mother, Aeris remains quite cheerful and always has a positive outlook. This makes her sudden death all the more tragic for everyone.
Zidane of Final Fantasy IX is surprisingly well adjusted for a 16-year-old orphan with a tail that gets dragged along to multiple genocides over the course of the game. It's genuinely shocking that his true origins can actually cause a Heroic BSoD, which he still gets over rather quickly. Even the adults in this game aren't that well put-together. And while finding out his origins did freak him out a bit, he immediately pushed it aside and turned on his creator while citing The Power of Friendship. The BSOD only occurred after his creator apparently ripped his soul out, and it took the rest of the party's Friendship speeches to help him recover.
Final Fantasy X:
Tidus woke up stranded in a strange new land and later found out his home was destroyed, but he's always cheerful and energetic. Even when he finds out he's a ghost (of a sort) and will fade away once Sin is defeated, he faces his end with a jubilant attitude.
Most of the main cast is quite depressed and either repressing it, hiding it or coping in their own way. The game lampshades this after Home when a character tells Tidus to smile because he'll only worry Yuna if he doesn't. It isn't hard to imagine this is what all the Guardians are doing the same so as to make the Pilgrimage less painful. This is specifically addressed in the cutscene outside of Djose Temple: Yuna shows up late, and everyone starts making cracks about her hair and generally kidding each other. In the narration, Tidus says that at that point, he was the only one really laughing, the implication being that everyone else was just trying to keep a stiff upper lip in the face of Spira's, and more specifically their, inevitable fate.
Spira as a whole has this feel to it, especially considering their constant terror by Sin. It's remarkable how they can continue their lives when Cthulu-Moby Dick can wipe out their lives in an instant.
The protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance both averts and embraces it - while he strives to go home, he does so in a manner free of angst. In Final Fantasy Tactics A2, meanwhile, the protagonist is dragged alone (at least Marche had his friends dragged with him), he kind of goes with it. At one point, he rather cheerfully admits to forgetting that the whole point of him traveling and adventuring was to go home; he was having too much fun, you know, traveling and adventuring.
What about Serah of Final Fantasy XIII-2? At the start of the game, she's already depressed about Lightning missing and Snow somewhere in Gran Pulse. During the course of the game, she found out that she has the Eyes of Etro, meaning her life span shortens every time she changes the timeline. She also found out that Snow acquired a l'cie mark, Lightning is in Valhalla (a place she can't leave easily) and the crystal pillar is in danger of breaking. Despite all that, she stays cheerful and optimistic. Then we found out that after defeating Caius, all the time paradoxes get resolved and the only timeline they can return to is 500AF. This means that the people Serah know in 2AF are dead, Snow may or may not be in the same timeline, Lightning may or may not leave Valhalla, Noel may vanish and she may die. She probably knows these but she still went ahead with a smile.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has Lightning mention that she should be feeling something, especially since she sent her little sister onto a journey that, she learned, was the cause of Serah's death, but feels nothing. It is explained that Bhunivelze 'sealed' her emotions away so that she could focus on her mission of saving as many souls as possible before Nova Chrysalis ceases to exist. Near the end, though, Lightning shows everything that has been repressed and realizes in horror what her becoming Etro for the new world will mean: being forever separated from her sister and friends and tearfully begs for someone to help her.
When Kotaku reviewed Final Fantasy XV, they actually criticised it for having a traumatic setup where a young man's father gets murdered, and then straight away turning into a goofy road trip between a group of guys messing around and making terrible puns.

At the start of A Clash of Kings, when Tyrion offers his condolences to Joffrey for the loss of his supposed father, Joffrey has to be reminded of the loss. Justified in that Joffrey is a sociopath who was never close to his father, and the death led to his ascension as king, which he's thrilled about. It's hinted that Joffrey may have seen the Hound as something of a surrogate father figure, albeit an emotionally distant one he could casually abuse, but he doesn't show much grief when the Hound takes off without a word either.

Paula Sis of After War Gundam X. For context, she lost her parents when so young that she cannot remember their faces, and has been raised by what amounts to an armed rebel group. After this group is wiped out, she sheds a few tears but almost instantly bounces back to her usual cheery self. One would think she would react a bit more strongly to the loss of everyone she had ever held dear in her life.

In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link doesn't seem the least bit upset over opening the gate to the Sacred Realm, allowing Ganondorf to seize the Triforce and plunge Hyrule into darkness, nor does he seem too upset over losing all his friends due to being sent back into time to before he met them. Then again... The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess averts this as the Hero Of Time, now dead and leading the new Link as the Hero's Shade, is incredibly bitter over not receiving recognition as a hero due to none of the events occurring in the Child timeline.

In Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Robin returns from the Crusades to find his family home repossessed and all his loved ones dead (including his pets). He gets a distressed expression for a second or two and then is off to his life of adventure.

7 Seeds: Subverted when it comes to the remaining survivors of the Final Test. Kaname believed that these children, who had been raised for the sole purpose of proving that they can survive horrific situations and be prepared for what the unknown, post-apocalyptic future will hold, would easily brush off the deaths of their schoolmates and friends. He bases this on his own experience — he saw his parents killed before his eyes, was kidnapped for ransom, and abandoned in the middle of the wilderness when the payment was made, and forced himself to learn ways to survive and make it back to civilization on his own — and thinks that horrible experiences strengthens a person. Yet when he sees the survivors of the Final Test, all he sees are completely broken husks of formerly well-put-together teenagers.

Until Dawn:
Mike gets over the loss of two of his fingers really fast. This is because his lines are largely the same whether it happens or not, so he'll be making wry jokes to himself only a minute or two after the injury.
If you keep Chris alive to the end (also resulting in him and Ashley having a Relationship Upgrade) but if Ashley died, strangely he will make no mention of Ashley or their relationship in the police interviews.

Two of the three playable Servants in Fate/EXTRA, Red Saber and Fox Caster have shades of this, (the third servant is Archer from Fate/stay night despite having Broken Bird level histories none of them really lament their past lives. It might be because they have had time to deal with it, but even over the course of the game, where things keep going From Bad to Worse, they are the rock that keeps the protagonist going.

Played with in The Magician's Nephew. While Diggory spends much of the book justifiably angsting over his sick and dying mother, he takes traveling to new worlds and fighting a witch pretty well. Uncle Andrew subverts this when he's thrown into the world of magic, and it's played for laughs.

In season five of Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister seems much less bothered after having murdered his former lover Shae and his father after having found her in his bed in the Tower of the Hand. Tyrion seems back to his old wise-cracking, clever self by the time he is captured by Jorah Mormont. Some fans have theorized that this was done to avoid Tyrion's much darker characterization from the corresponding book, which was disliked by many readers.

in Green Lantern: New Guardians, Glomulus is essentially a living construct made by Larfleeze. As in he can be dispersed whenever Larfleeze feels like it. Kyle Rayner asks if Glomulus is truly alive or not. Glommy's response? "Glomulus is Glomulus." It's kind of endearing that he can brush off something like that.

Corpse Party deconstructs this. While Seiko Shinohara is secretly a bit of a Stepford Smiler, her apparent lack of angst despite being trapped in a nightmarish situation causes her best friend Naomi Nakashima to accuse her of being creepy. This leads to a fight between the two and they separate. The next time they meet, Seiko is hanging from a pillar in the girl's bathroom. And there is no way for Naomi to save her.

The kids in Final Destination barely notice the sudden, shocking deaths of their friends, and instead focus almost exclusively on trying to cheat Death. This hits a crescendo of ridiculousness when Billy is gruesomely decapitated right in front of them by flying debris, and there isn't so much as a "Holy shit!" in reaction before they roll out the metaphorical blackboard and start trying to find a workaround to the Grim Reaper's cosmic book-balancing. The sequels then take it up several more notches.

In Avatar: The Abridged Series, Aang takes the extermination of his people and the fact that everyone he grew up with was probably horribly murdered fairly well. Possibly subverted as a few seconds later, when he calls Momo a kitty and gets corrected by his companions, he enters the Avatar State in a rage.

The fact that the protagonists in Peacemaker Kurogane manage to be as cheerful as they are is actually quite impressive especially considering how the terrorists they're fighting kill their friends, are trying to destroy their capital, and yet actually believe in all the same ideals as them. And that Okita's dying of tuberculosis. And that the three executive and Okita had to assassinate their founder because he used his power for racketeering, a mere year before the first part of the series. And the fact that, for them, the penalty for any violation of the Shinsengumi rules or Bushido in general, was ritual suicide.

Fawlty Towers lost a good joke because of John Cleese's unwillingness to do this. In an episode where a guest dies and Basil and Manuel have to carry the body around without anyone noticing, the original ending was that the guest's twin brother arrived, greatly upsetting Basil who thought he was the guest and had been pranking him. Cleese realized that at some point the man would have to catch on that his brother was dead, which would ruin any comedy.

Jeb Batchelder in Maximum Ride has every reason to angst — his son dies, twice, once practically in his arms, his daughter would gladly kill him if given the chance, and he regularly gets slapped around by his superiors — and yet he never says a word. He does get really upset during both of the times when Ari dies and it was mentioned that the clone of Max makes him very upset.

Saito of The Familiar of Zero. He is trapped in a world which is the complete opposite of his own, demoted to something akin to a dog, whipped and beaten by his tsundere mistress Louise, for who he gave up his only chance to return to Earth. His reaction? To drool over other girls' tits, even though he's been beaten black and blue for it. This is eventually, partially, justified in the novel: the familiar's seal Saito was given suppressed his inclination for homesickness. When Tifania removes the seal, his reaction was all the Angst bottled up for about a year. He does get better.

Especially considering its predecessor, the entire setting of Geist: The Sin-Eaters manages this trope quite nicely. To wit: in order to become a Sin Eater, you have to 1) start out with some kind of connection to death, such as through some kind of psychic power; 2) you need to die; and 3) you need to make a deal with a Geist to come Back from the Dead. Though one would think this would lead to tons of Supernatural Angst, most Sin Eaters seem to believe that, now that they've already died once, there's no reason they shouldn't enjoy themselves till Death gets them again.

You think that Danny Phantom would be faced with severe PTSD and depression after the episode "The Ultimate Enemy" considering that he witnessed the violent deaths of his parents, sister, best friends, and teacher and the destruction of his city (even if the Reset Button was eventually pushed) and fought his most evil and powerful foe yet which turned out to be the Bad Future version of himself, all because he cheated on an exam. Such events would definitely be emotionally scarring towards a 14-year-old boy, even one who's a superhero, but despite that, he still manages to live about his life normally and happily throughout the remainder of the show. Some fans have even speculated that he's a Stepford Smiler.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
Arthur Dent, as mentioned above. He has an even worse time of things in the books than the movie; Earth is destroyed more than once. Admittedly, in the books, his feelings on all the terrible things that seem to happen to him are explored a bit more fully, and he does occasionally get something like impatient sympathy from Trillian or Ford. But mostly, everything that happens seems to be nothing but a big joke at his expense. There's a sequence that plays with this; it seems trying to imagine everyone on earth is gone is just too big a thought for his head to contain. Instead, he worries about little things like Nelson's Column and the permanent end of the US dollar. When he realizes there are no more McDonalds hamburgers, he passes out and wakes up sobbing for his mother.
Ford's father died of shame because he (Ford) never learned to pronounce his own real name. This is explained in a footnote. He spends fifteen years trapped on Earth, one of the most boring places in the universe for a traveler to be, kept away from everyone and everything he knows and loves. He regularly gets drunk and staggers around outside looking for spaceships and saying "I'm trying, I'm trying" to people who tell him to go home. Arthur was probably the only real friend he made and kept during this time, as he was the only person he bothered to rescue from the Vogons. Not much is made of any of this.

Warhammer 40,000:
All media in The 'Verse include this trope as a matter of course, for two main reasons. Firstly, due to the particularly nasty version of natural selection on which the setting operates, if a character isn't able to mentally shield themselves against tragedy and horror then they won't last long. Secondly, when the types of enemies faced is such that the Sliding Scale of Villain Threat starts with things that can kill all life on a planet, then having a Doomed Homeworld really isn't something worthy of angst.
Da Orks are an entire species that has this as one of its many traits. A famous Eldar philosopher once spoke of them as being completely free of angst: every Ork knows and loves its role in life, Orks by nature have no fear of death, and all Orks get to fulfill a purpose within a society. So while you might find a human, Tau, or even Eldar contemplating the meaning of their life in a cold and heartless galaxy, an Ork considers such business 'mukkin' about' and getting in the way of proper business: dakka, choppa, lootin', more dakka, more choppa, more lootin', etc.

El Goonish Shive:
Elliot has to use his Gender Bender power every few hours, or it'll trigger at a random time. He also has to sleep as a girl, for the same reason. For him, this is more inconvenient than it would be for other people. He has never once complained about this.
Given how much control there tends to be over them, transformations, in general, are rarely a source of angst for the cast. The most notable aversion is Sarah, who was turned into a catgirl by Tedd at one point and is incredibly wary for awhile of him transforming her into anything else.
Grace has had the most horrible life out of all the characters. When confronted with it, she reacted appropriately, but once it's all over? It's like she never suffered years of trauma at the hands of Damien, who beat her when she displeased him and intended to use her to breed an army of chimeras! Nope, it's all swept under the rug. She's the most upbeat, positive character in the comic.
Susan tends to hide her feelings under an incredibly deadpan personality, to the point where instead of a good angel vs bad angel moral dilemma, she has a personification of her emotional side vs a personification of her logical side. It is repression though. A flashback shows that she was very hurt by her father cheating on her mom, to the point where she tries to hack her hair off with scissors and screams that she hates him. Having to kill a vampire in Paris is basically the reason she comes across as so broken in her teenage years. In one story arc, learning a trivial bit of information - that the magic hammers she'd used so often were actually meant to encourage sexist teasing towards women by giving a harmless outlet for the female anger - caused her to fly in such a fury that it's noted she showed angst appropriate for a family member dying.

Jessie from Pokémon has had a horrible childhood, which has only gotten worse due to added details over the years. Her mom was a part of Team Rocket but has been missing for twenty years, she grew up poor, eating snacks made of snow is a cherished childhood memory, she ended up running away at least once, she finished high school but couldn't get a diploma in nursing afterwards because it was a school for Chansey, and she's had countless other troubles. That's not even counting how she is treated nowadays. Her past is played up for laughs most of the time and Jessie herself seems to have the type of mentality about not letting past troubles get to her. The dub adds a few lines complaining about her past but in the Japanese original she is pretty nonchalant about everything.

Left Behind: Imagine that every child in the world and a not-insignificant chunk of the adult population vanishes in a single instant. This being a billion or so people (not counting the collateral deaths) with no plausible explanation, you'd probably be terrified, shell-shocked, if not suicidal. It's unusual then that everyone manages to continue running the world so quickly afterward — with governments and airlines and such remaining unaffected. The phone company endures all that and the onset of nuclear war, maintaining flawless cellular reception to a degree they can barely manage in reality.

The Punisher: Frank's family being killed by criminals during a picnic comes up a lot (epecially by criminals facing him), but his only real reaction since it happened is to go out and shoot criminals in the face (for over 30 years in the MAX 'verse). Note that whether this makes him badass or severely mentally disturbed is a debate that goes on in-universe, several characters have gone through similar trauma with nowhere near Frank's level of self-control or detachment. In one case, he managed to snap a man who'd gone through a similar Trauma Conga Line back to his senses with six words: "Do you want to be me?"

In one episode of Sonic X Amy, Tails, Chris, and Cream see Gerald Robotnik being executed on tape. They don't react with anything besides mild confusion. This is because the original Sonic Adventure 2 scene rewound before the shooting.

Deconstructed in God of War (PS4): As a Spartan, Kratos mourns for his recently deceased wife in the way his culture would’ve expected; with stoicism, practicality, and quiet introspection. His son Atreus, however, grew up in Norse culture and doesn’t have any context behind that behavior. As a result, he mistakes Kratos’s calm acceptance as him not caring about Faye’s death, worsening the tension between them.

Final Fantasy X:
Tidus woke up stranded in a strange new land and later found out his home was destroyed, but he's always cheerful and energetic. Even when he finds out he's a ghost (of a sort) and will fade away once Sin is defeated, he faces his end with a jubilant attitude.
Most of the main cast is quite depressed and either repressing it, hiding it or coping in their own way. The game lampshades this after Home when a character tells Tidus to smile because he'll only worry Yuna if he doesn't. It isn't hard to imagine this is what all the Guardians are doing the same so as to make the Pilgrimage less painful. This is specifically addressed in the cutscene outside of Djose Temple: Yuna shows up late, and everyone starts making cracks about her hair and generally kidding each other. In the narration, Tidus says that at that point, he was the only one really laughing, the implication being that everyone else was just trying to keep a stiff upper lip in the face of Spira's, and more specifically their, inevitable fate.
Spira as a whole has this feel to it, especially considering their constant terror by Sin. It's remarkable how they can continue their lives when Cthulu-Moby Dick can wipe out their lives in an instant.

Given how long Billy searched and longed for a reunion with his missing mother in SHAZAM! (2019), he was able to put on a brave face when he discovered his mother deliberately abandoned him and all his attempts to find her over the years were All for Nothing as she currently doesn't want him back in her life. He leaves the meeting on neutral terms but it's clear as he is walking away that he is on the verge of tears. He's then immediately pulled into a fight with Sivana without further time to process what had happened.

Played with in Lost Girl. Lauren has spent 5 years as a slave to a species that despise humans, in a desperate attempt to find a cure for her comatose girlfriend. She later learns the Fae deliberately cursed Nadia into a coma, just to get her services. She really doesn't take that well. Her girlfriend is eventually revived, and in short order possessed by the Big Bad, given a Mercy Kill from Bo (Lauren's other love interest), and dies in Lauren's arms. Lauren spends the next episode going through a realistic process of grief. She's hostile to Bo, admits to having nightmares, looks like she's about to break down any minute, gives a scientific reason for Sex for Solace (but doesn't carry it out), and expresses a desire to simply run and leave it all behind her. It is gone by the next episode, but given how reserved she is (which is heavily implied to be how she got through those 5 years) she probably just isn't showing it. Ultimately averted in Season 3; after being assaulted in her home, she finally breaks down and talks about the toll the past few years has had on her. She mentions Nada's death, and the problems with her current relationship with Bo aren't helping.

The Outsiders — A gang of boys who get into fights for their life with a rival gang of spoiled rich kids on a daily basis, with no parents, no money, and no angsting allowed. When Ponyboy starts complaining once, Two-Bit tells him to shut up because life isn't fair. Subverted later when it becomes clear a lot of them are just coping and they break when it's too much, like Ponyboy's brothers or Dally.

Most of the cyborgs of Gunslinger Girl have their memories or their pre-Agency lives erased in order to remove the pain of past traumas (or make them easier to control, if you're cynical). Rico is unique in that she has full recollection of her time before she was given over to the Agency - which was not in itself a happy experience, with years crippled by birth defects and beset by quarreling parents - and is not at all troubled by years wasted in a hospital bed or being possessed by the Agency and used as a killing machine.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
Discord was stuck as a stone statue for well over a millennium, and fully conscious the entire time. Once he's freed, he's remarkably fine, even mentioning his loneliness and boredom while imprisoned off-handedly. Though he does hint that he's more upset about his Fate Worse than Death than he lets on.
Subverted when Princess Luna was banished in the moon for a thousand years as Nightmare Moon. At first, it didn't seem to have affected Luna's sanity but the Season 5 episode "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?" reveals that she created the dream-warping Tantabus as a reminder that she once was Nightmare Moon. With some encouragement from Ponyville, Luna shakes off the ghosts and defeats her creation.
The only ponies who angst over anything that went on in the season 2 finale were Twilight and Cadance, the former regretful over her impulsive attack on Cadance (who was revealed to be a fake) and the latter upset that the fake is taking her place and marrying her fiance. Everyone else sees nothing to cry over, not even the civilians of Canterlot who were attacked by the Changelings. Everyone just danced the night away like none of it happened... Granted, it all worked out for them.

Doctor Who:
The Doctor himself has gone back and forth on this. Often serials would have a very Bittersweet Ending with a high body count, and the Doctor mourning the senseless tragedy of it all. Next serial he'd be up for a bit more fun sightseeing, even when it's made clear that little time has past between stories. One explanation — and justification of this trope — running since the First Doctor days and made more explicit in the new series is that the Doctor feels the angst all too much (especially the destruction of his own people between the original show and the revival), but must keep running. To dwell on all the horror he has faced would mean a one-way trip across the Despair Event Horizon. Like the First Doctor says hugging Dodo after "The Savages", he must never look back!
For further justification, the finale three-parter of Series 9 ("Face the Raven"]/["Heaven Sent"]/["Hell Bent") examines exactly what happens to the Doctor if he isn't able to run. When the Doctor's beloved companion Clara dies in a Senseless Sacrifice planned by a woman he failed and his own people, instead of getting to run, he is immediately consigned to a Psychological Torment Zone where he can only dwell on her loss and his own pain. When he finally breaks out of the torture chamber after billions of years, he responds by going insane and breaking the logic of time and space in a desperate attempt to save Clara, regardless of her own feelings on the matter, not to mention everyone else's. In the end, Clara is forced to wipe his memory of her in order to allow him to return to anything approaching a functioning life, eventually returning them to him once he'd taken another companion, processed his old memories, and moved on.
The first companion to leave in the whole show is Susan, the Doctor's own granddaughter. He quietly misses her for a few moments during "The Rescue", but then he picks up Vicki, a Replacement Goldfish granddaughter who, unlike Susan, tends to be the Doctor's chirpy sidekick instead of the Screaming Woman. This suits the Doctor's selfishness and Blue-and-Orange Morality, but isn't exactly sympathetic to consider in any depth. Susan presents all sorts of problems in this regard as she was a companion from a very different show to what the show eventually became and being the only companion the Doctor has no reason never to go back for - the show did its best in the old days to deal with this by simply forgetting she ever existed. The Expanded Universe even suggests that the Doctor even forgot all about Susan, but the revival series has both the Ninth and Tenth Doctor mention being a grandparent in a far more angsty way.
"The Daleks' Master Plan" is an ungodly long twelve part story arc, where the first ever companion deaths in the series are encountered- that of Sara Kingdom and Katarina. Is the Doctor depressed about this? Broken, that after taking up Barbara and Ian so long ago to travel in space in time, that a human died in his helpless hands? No. He shakes his head, says goodbye, and moves on.
"Doctor Who and the Silurians" is a harrowing story with a colossal body count where the Doctor is stuck mediating between the Silurians and the humans, both of whom are trying to kill each other out of racist paranoia even though the Doctor is convinced they could talk it out. At the end of the story, hundreds of humans are dead from the Silurian plague, and the Brigadier's misguided attempts to protect humanity from further warfare led him to simply murder all of the defenceless Silurians in suspended animation, metaphorically stabbing the Doctor in the back in order to do so. The final image of the story is the Doctor looking down at the explosion in horror, declaring that the Brigadier had committed murder. The following story, "The Ambassadors of Death", opens with the Doctor in a new house making the TARDIS console do Timey-Wimey Ball tricks and still working for the Brigadier like nothing has happened, with the exception of one throwaway barbed comment about the Brigadier being bored because he can't find more Silurians to shoot.
Averted as strongly as the Classic series ever really really managed in the aftermath to "Inferno" (the finale of Season 7), in which the Doctor's failure to save the Mirror Universe Earth (and being forced by the laws of time and space to abandon the versions of his friends he met there to die) strongly affects his personality from that point on - he becomes colder and shorter-tempered and alludes to it often. His Establishing Character Moment in the next season is him singing "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire", and when getting a Mind Rape from the Keller Machine in "The Mind of Evil" he hallucinates fire and explains to Jo that it's trauma. He also experiences fire in the nightmare he has at the beginning of "The Time Monster".
Something horrible, usually getting possessed or blinded or so on, ends up happening to Sarah Jane once a story, and she eventually decides to leave the TARDIS crew because of it... but not because it's so scary and unpleasant, because it's boring. Her final speech in which she complains to the Doctor is delivered in tones of naggy frustration while the Doctor tinkers with the TARDIS in the background in the manner of a boorish husband fiddling with his car while his wife tells him off.
Dealt with interestingly in Season 14. The Doctor in "The Face of Evil" is rather chirpy considering he's just been dumped by Sarah before having an unusually harrowing experience involving the Master and a lot of torture... but the opening of "The Robots of Death" has him give his age to Leela, and it's a year higher than it had been a couple of episodes ago. Presumably he did his brooding offscreen. The Expanded Universe plugs the gap here.
Director Ben Wheatley cited this trope as the reason why he found Fourth Doctor stuff so dark:
Companions run the gamut in how well they cope with their adventures, from Action Girl to Screaming Woman. The companions who freak when they're running from homicidal Daleks would seem to be more realistic than the ones who stand and fight (not to mention saner), but the fans always prefer the ones who don't angst. Realistic or not, which one do you want to spend a half-hour watching?
Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) thinks this was the reason the show treated much of the universe as a Throw-Away Country after its destruction in "Logopolis" - there was no way to deal with the implications of what had happened, and the characters' participation (however unwitting) in it, without derailing the show. (The third option would have been not to have such a huge catastrophe in the first place, but anyway.) Nyssa, who was from that part of the universe, is visibly choked up, her voice breaking (or shaking with suppressed rage, it's hard to tell which) when watching Traken's destruction. After that, events moved with enough speed and desperation that she wouldn't have had a chance to emotionally break down until the end of the story arc, at which point she presumably did her mourning offstage in the time gap between episodes. It's also entirely in-character for Nyssa to not go around emotionally freaking out; unlike some of the more higher-strung Companions, Nyssa's hat was being the calm and intelligent one.
Ended up being something of a signature trope of the Peter Davison era, as an unfortunate result of (not entirely unsuccessful) attempts to ramp up the drama and conflict, presided over by a bunch of sci-fi and light entertainment writers and producers who didn't really understand how to pull this off. Nyssa's father's corpse is being worn by a mad Time Lord constantly trying to kill her!... and she never mentions it at all or even reacts. Tegan's aunt is killed by the Master!... "...and what's worse, I'm late for work!". Adric dies in a brilliant and painful sequence!... and in the next episode the Doctor says Adric wouldn't want everyone to mourn and everything is forgotten! The Doctor is introduced to his granddaughter who he abandoned centuries ago in a war zone and vowed through suppressed tears that he would come back for her!... and says "Yes, I know".
Amy displays a blase attitude towards adventuring, danger, and her fiancé's safety, and is especially blatant after the previous regime's more realistic depiction of extreme trauma. Halfway through her second season, she has her month-old baby taken to be made into a human weapon, and while at the end of the episode she's seen shaking and crying, come the next episode and everything is business as usual. On the other hand, the actress describes Amy as a Stepford Smiler, so she just isn't showing it. This was also partly the result of the series's Troubled Production, and there are multiple Expanded Universe stories and minisodes which attempt to plug the gaps.
Clara Oswald's tenure is a deconstruction of the whole trope, not helped by her tendency to act as a strong-willed, Don't You Dare Pity Me! type of person, or the fact that her friendship with the Doctor is frequently mired in misunderstandings, half-truths and flat-out lies (especially with the colder, more detached and more alien Twelfth Doctor). By her third series, she's forever lost the man she grew to love and has changed from a cheerful and cheeky lady into a more world-weary and reckless figure with a lot of barely repressed trauma. Even though the Doctor is trying to be a caring friend, he realises she's bordering on being a death seeker, causing him to explicitly worry about her despite needing her as his Living Emotional Crutch, while she keeps denying that her grief is making her increasingly depressed and jaded towards everything but her adrenaline junkie desires. In the end, the trope is reconstructed: When she condemns herself to death in "Face the Raven", she accepts this as the bitter fruit of her recklessness and faces it with courage, telling the Doctor that both of them must be brave now. Unfortunately, he has a Sanity Slippage, as she learns when he pulls her out of time. In the end, helping him move on leaves her functionally immortal with her own TARDIS and companion, able to have near-infinite adventures — so long as she eventually returns to her death — as a sadder, wiser, more cautious woman.

A different, darker take on this trope comes from the Spring Court of Changeling: The Lost. After being kidnapped by The Fair Folk, horribly abused, and escaping, they decided they would live it up as best as they could if only to spite their former captors. Subverted in that they really are still heavily traumatized by what happened to them in Arcadia, they're just in heavy denial and/or trying to sublimate their psychological issues through partying.

Person of Interest: Every member of Team Machine has a dark traumatic past and need for redemption which makes them very dour people. It seems like an occupational hazard until they met the Washington D.C. Team Machine. Despite having similarly dark pasts, Logan Pierce, Joey Durban, and Harper Rose are all smiles while doing their jobs. Logan Pierce even lamented that knowing right away that John was the victim and not the killer took some of the fun out of it.

Twilight:
While Bella Swan is wangst incarnate, whining about absolutely everything, angsting on how she doesn't deserve to be with someone like Edward or to have a friend like Jacob and gets incredibly depressed whenever Edward leaves her or tries to, she's this in the areas where she really should be. She barely gives a thought to how Edward's a blood-sucking vampire who constantly warns her that her life could be in danger if she gets close to him, or the very real consequences that come with becoming a vampire. Uncontrollable hunger for blood? Loss of human emotions? Who cares? All she wants is to be with Edward forever! (It turns out that she doesn't suffer from the drawbacks of becoming a vampire... for some reason.) She also has a grand total of maybe one or two misgivings about leaving her human family to be with Edward. Considering how she's set up as a loving, sweet daughter who is her mother's best friend and her father's only hope for normalcy, it seems odd that she's willing to live forever without them after they die a mere month or two after meeting Edward. Then again, it quickly becomes evident that she lies to and patronizes her mother every chance she gets.
Bella's father Charlie seems pretty nonchalant for a guy whose daughter changed overnight from a clumsy, fairly pretty everygirl to a ravishing, completely-in-control model.
As we see in Breaking Dawn, imprinting is enough to get a guy to not care that the former love of his life and mother of his new love interest just died violently and bloodily not minutes prior, nor that she is now what he used to consider a soulless monster, nor that she has definitely left him for another man. Never mind that he wanted to kill the girl a minute earlier, nor that she is a newborn baby.
The Cullen family are supposed to be highly moral (especially Carlisle) and regret all human lives that have to be lost. Then they invite every vampire they know into the area where they live, and allow them to eat whoever they want provided it's not someone Bella cares about. She thinks about this for a second, then deliberately puts it out of her mind, and it's never ever brought up again.

Beast Boy/Changeling spent most of his life as a glutton for punishment. Details aside, most people tend to assume he's miserable and pity him. In Geoff Johns' Teen Titans, he makes it clear that the problems in his life don't bother him nearly as much as they think; but what he can't stand is when people feel sorry for him.

By the end of Face/Off, Eve Archer has been effectively sleeping with Castor Troy (wearing Sean Archer's face), and Jamie has stabbed Castor in the leg - an act which rarely leaves people unscarred in Real Life. This family really should be falling apart any second now, especially after Sean adopts Castor's son who was orphaned partially due to him - but we are asked to accept this as a Happy Ending.

In The Will of the Empress, Sandry annuls the marriage of an abused woman named Gudruny who was forced into marriage many years ago, and who was so desperate she risked hiding in Sandry's wardrobe to beg for release. In Real Life, long-term abuse survivors have a lot of emotional problems to work through after they escape, but Gudruny turns from "battered wife" to "motherly dispenser of wisdom" almost overnight, with no apparent ill effects.note Although the setting does have "mind healers" who seem able to magically treat emotional problems and some mental illness, there is no mention of Gudruny ever visiting one.

Prince Alexander of King's Quest spent most of his life as a mistreated slave, but you'd be hard-pressed to tell in King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow where he seems to be an appropriately well-mannered and gracious gentleman, other than a few wistful comments he makes alluding to the matter. (He is rather quiet and reserved, but not more so than you might expect someone who's a scholarly bookworm by inclination would naturally be.) The Expanded Universe and fanworks almost invariably respond to this by altering his behavior in some way to be more "realistic".

To a small extent, the Pharaoh from Yu-Gi-Oh!. On finding out his real identity he caustically remarks that it's no wonder he's lost his memories. His means of avoiding angsting about his lost identity seem to be his devil-may-care attitude towards things and occasional snarky smirk. Interestingly, his moments of overconfidence settle down dramatically when he learns his identity.

Last Res0rt:
Daisy's had her leg amputated and has been held prisoner/tortured for at least the past three months prior to her arrival on the show. We can justify some of her dissonance by assuming if she IS Scout Arael, she's been conditioned previously to withstand some of what happened to her and that on top of this, her Autistic traits make it harder to notice if she's angsting.
Jigsaw's also been hiding away from her family and everyone else in the three months between turning into a vampire (and believing she murdered her sire). She's been surprisingly calm since.
Slick's been in jail for six years for a crime he didn't do — though there's at least a couple on the list he probably did do, he most definitely didn't kill his own father.
White Noise has been in jail for forty-seven years although in his case he definitely did the crime, he just claims he was ordered to do it. Granted, he also became filthy rich while he was locked up, but still.

Pearls Before Swine loves to play this for dark laughs. Various crocodiles, Rat and Pig's roommate Leonard, and even Stephan Pastis himself have died (and undied) in the series, with little if any mourning.

In Superman Family #165, Krypto the Superdog travels through time and emerges in the past, almost immediately transformed into a cow (thanks to some Red Kryptonite). He finds himself milked, and he gets so upset over his situation he knocks a lamp over, causing a fire. Krypto soon turns back to normal and leaves the farm, only to overhear the farmer calling for Mrs. O'Leary. It is that moment that Krypto realises that he traveled to the beginning of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. Krypto's reaction upon realising that he's the one who caused the greatest fire in history? "Well, I'll fly back to my own time-era!"

Arcueid is the last remaining sane True Ancestor (until the Nasuverse needs more, anyway) and the strongest one ever. Why? Because she's a living weapon. No life experiences, no memories, no friends, no family (except a 'sister' that she does not get along with, and her father the... moon? Skip that one for now) and then we get to the first person she ever really talked to, Roa, who tricked her into drinking his blood, causing her to kill all the True Ancestors and stole some of her power, then goes around being all vampirey just so she comes and chases him. 800 years later she has so little life experience that she's ecstatic over a simple conversation. Oh, and before that, she never spoke to anyone nor had anything she thought of as fun. Yet she's probably the sanest/most well-adjusted character in the series (except when she goes yandere) apart from Arihiko. She doesn't even really care and is a big goofball all the time.

Even though the message of Star Trek: Generations was to move on with your life after past failures/tragedies, Picard seems unusually subdued about the fact that the Enterprise was destroyed in his absence. He even picks up a priceless artifact he got from a friend during the series that was completely ruined and sets it aside as if it meant nothing. At least when he learns his nephew and brother died, it causes him actual grief. All that was in character though, it's only discussed in private with Counselor Troi (making it the only time we've ever seen him consult with her), but he does express real sorrow at this (even growing close to crying). Still, it was never mentioned again, and it's not shown to affect him after this.

Satsuki Kiryuin of Kill la Kill very much qualifies for this trope after her Freudian Excuse is revealed. It's quite unbelievable and rather superhuman that an eighteen-year-old young lady can have her father and sister killed by her own mother, and spend a good chunk of her life being physically, psychologically, and sexually abused by her mother and come out of it relatively unscathed.

In Live A Live, Orsted silently bears all the misfortunes his quest throws in his way as it slowly goes from a very generic "save the princess" plot into the depths of From Bad to Worse territory. He's told that as long as someone's counting on him, he should keep moving forward, and that's exactly what he does. Until the princess tells him she hates him and kills herself rather than be saved by him. Then he, uh... breaks.

Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Tobia Arronax continues the tradition in the UC 0130s, being one of the more well-adjusted characters in the Universal Century. As an interesting sidenote, Judau as Grey Stoke also makes an appearance around this time period and seemingly unchanged from his ZZ days, although there are signs that he hasn't quite gotten over some of the trauma.

The Hunger Games:
The only thing that seems to make Peeta Mellark angst is being hijacked by the Capitol, and even that is the result of brainwashing targeted to make people frightened and anguished. The list of things he shows no signs of angsting over include having killer wasps dropped on him while sleeping, taking a sword to the leg, nearly dying of sepsis, being forced to listen to someone being slowly chewed to death over several hours, having his leg amputated and finding out the girl he loves only pretended to love him back. And that's just from the first book. Even his nightmares are mostly about losing Katniss and not about the horrors he's lived through.
Gale doesn't spend much time angsting, not even when he's been flogged within an inch of his life.

In Aladdin, the genie says he's been trapped in his lamp for 10,000 years, a fate that would have driven any of us insane with boredom. But he seems fine apart from a "crick in the neck." Although, being a genie, maybe he has ways to amuse himself that we don't. The number of anachronistic jokes he makes over the course of the movie would indicate that at the very least, he doesn't perceive time and space the same way we do.

Power Rangers S.P.D. gives us Sam, the Omega Ranger who is from a Bad Future where Emperor Grumm won and B Squad was killed, so he went back in time to Set Right What Once Went Wrong. What makes this a particularly bad offender is that the members of B Squad were some of his only friends when he was a kid, and you'd think that combined with The Bad Guy Wins would traumatize him so badly, it would border on Wangst, but he never shows a trace of angst. Then again, Executive Meddling caused him to be Demoted to Extra, with only a small number of cases where he got to be a Spotlight-Stealing Squad, so he was pretty much shafted in terms of Character Development...

In Rise of the Guardians, when Jack regains his memories, he learns that he drowned in a frozen pond whilst saving his sister. He proceeds to focus on the fact that he saved his sister, rather than the fact that he died. In one way it makes sense, considering that Jack's purpose is to literally be Fun Personified.

In the Codename: Kids Next Door episode "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.", a Kids Next Door operative from the 1800s is thawed out after having been frozen in an ice cream explosion for nearly two hundred years. His modern-day counterparts try to console him because they assume he must be in shock. After all, his world is gone and everyone he ever knew is long dead. Turns out the only thing he's bothered about is the fact that the Kids Next Door are now allowing girls to become operatives. Throughout the entire episode, he never shows any real sadness as a result of his plight.

Subaru from Ensemble Stars! is something of a Deconstruction - the previous year, when the War was raging and idols were having their future destroyed left and right, traumatising a good proportion of the cast, he continued to act as much like an upbeat, energetic Pollyanna as ever. However, this actually caused his classmates to turn against him, as he seemed incredibly insensitive and lacking in empathy. Subaru didn't understand this at all, because at the time he didn't understand emotions well and honestly thought everyone would rather be happy all the time. He didn't even realise that he himself might be dealing with some negative emotions, only recognising after the fact that he probably had felt upset alongside everyone else but had no idea what to do with that feeling. In the present year, he's gotten a lot better, but he's still off-puttingly perky at times.

South Park:
The kids never show any emotion, besides their trademark line, when Kenny is killed. One episode reveals that Kenny is the only one aware he ever died. Everyone else forgets it ever happened the next morning. Deconstructed in "Kenny Dies," which has Kenny diagnosed with a terminal disease and plays it straight. As an added twist, this death actually stuck; the creators intended to have him Killed Off for Real but did eventually resurrect him by the end of the next season.
Butters has an especially bad childhood. He's essentially the in-series Butt-Monkey and The Scrappy and his parents are abusive however he stays an oblivious idealistic kid. He probably counts more as a Stepford Smiler, since he's clearly terrified of his parents half the time and comes off as very neurotic.

In Fruits Basket, Tohru is usually extremely cheerful and amiable, despite having a dead mother, working to pay for her own tuition and having been ostracised by her peers from an early age. She has a few lines, especially in the first couple of chapters, which reveal she's forcing herself to be strong because her mother wouldn't want her to be sad. As it turns out, it's justified; she is hurting inside and had closed up everything in a box that she didn't want to open, continuously happy so she can make other people around her glad. The 2001 anime adaptation, which only covers a third of the manga's plot (and therefore never touches on Tohru's hidden insecurites or her later Character Development) makes her more of The Pollyanna as a result.

Firestar in Warrior Cats doesn't think twice about leaving his 'housefolk' to go live with a group of feral cats. It seems he didn't really care for his owners, which is arguably Reality Ensues since plenty of cats do just run off, but is a bit jarring. He thinks about his feline friends and believes he's better off with Thunderclan, but doesn't think of his humans besides the fact that they'll get a Replacement Goldfish after he leaves (which they do).

The Chronicles of Narnia:
The Silver Chair: The narrator takes the time to explain and justify Jill Pole's right to be this, acknowledging that this trope is generally preferred amongst readers. Also, human emotions received more attention as the series progressed, which makes Jill's portrayal far different from the Pevensies' four books ago.
It's played with in the case of Prince Rilian. He's genuinely traumatized at spending years as a prisoner underground, to the point where he violently threatens the children when it looks like they won't free him. He also is heartbroken over the death of his father. But on the other hand, as he and the children flee the collapsing underground and he knows his time is limited to reach his dying father, he still is seriously tempted to stop to explore the deep underground realm of the dwarfs. Jill has to remind him of his other obligations.
The Pevensies had a rather severe case of this trope. Their home is being bombed, and they're living with a stranger to get away from the fighting. They've stumbled upon another world, and Lucy's friend there has been kidnapped. They then find out that they're part of an ancient prophecy that involves going back into a warzone. Their first response is essentially a cheery, "Great, where do we sign up?" Nor do they seem to miss their home while living in Narnia. Then, in Prince Caspian, the once-kings-now-kids seem to have had no trouble readjusting to being children in London after spending (at least) fifteen years as royalty in a magic land. Once they are transported back, they seem none the worse after figuring out that it's been a thousand years in Narnia and all their old friends are dead. And once they rescue Trumpkin and find out what's happening, they rush off to help rescue the title character, with no thought of getting their old thrones back.
Played with in The Magician's Nephew. While Diggory spends much of the book justifiably angsting over his sick and dying mother, he takes traveling to new worlds and fighting a witch pretty well. Uncle Andrew subverts this when he's thrown into the world of magic, and it's played for laughs.

On True Blood, perhaps as a result of the break-neck pace of the series, no one really has the opportunity to deal with traumatic events for more than half an episode before the plot train comes to take them to the next station. Not that there aren't moments of angst (e.g., Eric's response to Godric's suicide), but they rarely have any long-term effects.

Shiki, which was intentionally done and is noted several times. Presumably it was done in order to contrast him with the likes of Kohaku, Hisui or Ciel who just can't leave the past alone, and it kinda helps that his memory is Swiss Cheese due to his stepfather's actions, to the point that he doesn't really remember two of the most traumatic instances of his childhood except subconsciously. Though the one time he realized that he was suppressing his guilt over murdering Arcueid, he was completely horrified with himself and immediately began apologizing to her.
Looking at Arihiko's behavior in the main storylines, you'd never guess that his backstory involved almost his entire family being killed in an earthquake and guilt over wishing that his crushed grandmother would die faster so that she wouldn't cause the rubble to shift while trying to reach him where he was pinned for days in the wreckage.

Robin Hood in Once Upon a Time gives his BBC counterpart some competition. He's introduced as a widower who finds love again with former evil queen Regina. When Marian comes back from the dead and reveals to him that Regina was the one who killed her, he doesn't give a damn and is mostly upset to be separated from his true love. A few months later, it turns out that Marian is actually Regina's sister Zelina in disguise who repeatedly raped him by fraud. Once again, he's just upset with her being pregnant and is immediately ready to move on with Regina.

Inheritance Cycle:
Eragon exhibits this in the second book Eldest. It is revealed to him that his father was The Dragon to the Big Bad, and to put it lightly, not a nice person. He gets over this in three paragraphs. He does, however, angst when his uncle dies (for a few chapters, after which he gets over it), when he is told that his father was really his mentor, Brom, and when Murtagh joins the enemy.
There's also Arya in Eragon: in spite of having been, by her own admission, beaten, tortured, and very nearly raped for months on end, the biggest reaction we get out of her thereafter is a paragraph of her clenching her jaw a bit as she recounts the events... and after that everything's just peachy. This may also be a racial thing for her, considering one of the things about elves is their iron-control over themselves. Arya is also more withdrawn and closed than most of them, and for her even a clenched jaw might equal something stronger from others. This is eventually addressed much later in the series, in the third book, when Eragon notes that she never talks about what happened to her. This leads to her breaking down and weeping while sharing about the details of her captivity and its effects on her.

In Time Trap, Taylor, Cara, Jackie, and Veeves only show angst briefly in reaction to knowing that everyone and everything they knew outside has long been gone, given that it has been over ten millennia outside since they first entered the cave . Justified in that they were focused on not getting killed by hostile cavemen. At the end of the movie, when they rescue Furby, Hopper, Hopper's parents and Hoppers' sister, they show little angst as they had years to come to terms with life over ten thousand years after their own time.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
In "The Harvest", the second episode, Xander and Willow's so-called best friend Jesse gets turned into a vampire, and Xander is forced to slay him. Neither Xander nor Willow seem that affected by this event, especially over the long term. Jesse is never mentioned again. Worse, this was their first exposure to the fact that vampires are real. The situation might have been different if the development plans for Jesse had come through, since a proposed line was for him to become a recurring, unapologetic vampire opponent (like vamp!Xander and vamp!Willow in the Wishverse).
An In-Universe example occurs in the episode "Forever"; Dawn accuses Buffy of having this reaction to their mother's death, since Buffy hasn't even cried and is just running treating the whole thing like some kind of chore. In reality, Buffy has been bottling up her emotions to deal with her grief and trying to stay strong for Dawn's sake.

Touhou:
Reimu is likely an orphan, and Marisa has been estranged from her family since she was young, but they never mention it, let alone to angst about it. All indications point towards them preferring it that way.
Flandre Scarlet has spent almost five hundred years in the basement of the Scarlet Mansion because her ridiculous levels of power are a threat to everyone and everything, yet despite what fan works would have you believe she remains a Cheerful Child with no malice or resentment towards anyone.
Yuyuko's ability to control the spirits of the dead eventually developed into the immensely dangerous power to invoke death with a mere thought and while her fear of this power eventually did drive her to commit suicide she is now one of the funniest and cheerful characters in Gensoukyou, having fully embraced her existence as a Cute Ghost Girl and no trace of her earlier worries are ever so much as hinted at. The revelation that her body is currently used to seal the Saigyouji Ayakashi, meaning that she's forever barred from entering heaven and her soul won't survive if she's ever resurrected, has not even put a frown on her face.
Byakuren Hijiri was imprisoned in Makai for more than one thousand years as punishment for thinking it would be nice for youkai and humans to stop fighting each other, yet she remains probably the friendliest, most caring person in the series. Fans almost immediately dubbed her "Youkai Jesus" as a result.
Even though Gensoukyou is cut off from the outside world, sometimes stuff from the outside world falls through holes in the barrier and some of the stuff includes scientific scriptures. This, it turns out, is like a plague in the setting. Yamabiko, the youkai race responsible for shouting your echo back at you, used to be common in Gensoukyou, but following a rumor that started to spread in the human village that echoes are actually just sound waves being reflected back at you from surfaces, the yamabiko are losing their purpose in life and essentially facing extinction via Puff of Logic. Kyouko Kasodani is a yamabiko but you really wouldn't believe any of the above information from her friendly and cheerful demeanor.

While the rest of the Touhou Ibunshu cast have much justifiable angst about various things, Reimu and Marisa get over things remarkably quickly and soon start reacting to being in constant mortal danger with the equivalent of "not this again". Even getting stabbed to death and resurrected in the second arc barely registered; Alice ended up being more upset about that than they were. This is presented as being a virtue and part of the reason why they're so heroic compared to the more morally questionable characters, as they are more concerned with making a new future than dwelling on the past.
That said, Reimu is later shown to suffer the beginnings of depression and PTSD, at least partly due to the isolation she'd imposed upon herself. Yukari, picking on this, sends Suika, who takes her on a Journey to the Center of the Mind of her friends, forcing her to talk with others about her death and resurrection. Merely acknowledging what happened somewhat helps, as does recognizing that she has friends she can rely upon; discussing it and encountering different viewpoints (notably, helping Sakuya deal with her own Enemy Within) helps even more. Between this and learning of the Kashoyo threat, Reimu is jolted out of her depression. Marisa, who's more extroverted, more likely to talk about her issues and has been leaning on Alice, is noticeably less affected.

In An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, Fievel's parents really don't seem sad or concerned enough when Fievel falls off the train on their "way out west", leaving him stranded in the middle of the desert and possibly gravely injured. When they get to the town of Green River they're more concerned about where they're going to be living than the whereabouts of their son, saying "He'll find his way here on his own". And when Fievel finally is reunited with them, they're happy, but they don't make a big deal out of it. It's like "Oh, Fievel's lost. It must be Tuesday again." This is probably because executives wanted Fievel Goes West to be Lighter and Softer than the first movie, which had more than enough angst to go around after Fievel got lost.

Lian Harper is understandably freaked out when Dreamslayer summons her in Convergence: Titans but she manages to roll with everything that happens after Arsenal saves her. She doesn't even seem fazed by how, since the last time she saw her father (which to her had just been earlier in her day), he now has a prosthetic arm.

Ace Attorney:
In Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Trucy Wright gets over both the disappearance and the murder of her father surprisingly quickly. In fact, Apollo seems more shocked than she is. Towards the end, however, it's revealed that she is upset about it, she just avoids showing it to most people.
Phoenix gets over his shock at Mia's death in the first game rather quickly, considering how much she meant to him. He may be channeling his grief into determination to bring the (real) murderer to justice within the three-day trial, however. The effect is also softened somewhat by the fact that Phoenix still gets to see Mia occasionally by way of Maya channeling her, though it is still weird during the case itself.
There's some sort of Law of Diminishing Grief at play in the AA-verse. Maya reacts somewhat realistically to Mia's death in the first game and is similarly shown to still carry grief for her missing mother. However, when her mother not only appears but is brutally murdered, Maya seems far more hand-wavey. This is explained as her being strong for Pearl's sake, and she does seem pretty upset during her testimony in the final trial, so after multiple installments showing that Maya has kind of a crazy threshold for emotional and physical trauma (being kidnapped and held for ransom, diving in front of a taser, etc.), it's believable. However, in later games, both Trucy and Kay Faraday seem to immediately recover from the deaths of their fathers at breakneck speed — in the former case, the character had been estranged from her father for years, but in the latter the two characters were apparently inseparable and the father had died about two hours before, creating a strange jarring effect. Like... seriously, we're talking about Swiss rolls right now? Your dad is dead.
If Franziska von Karma is upset that Phoenix sent her father to jail for murder, she doesn't seem to show it. Her main concern is defeating him where Edgeworth failed in order to prove herself superior. This does eventually get addressed (very) briefly in the third game (where she mentions she isn't out for revenge for her father, implying that she's had time to think about it) and then more profoundly in Investigations 2, where she tells Kay, referring to a distraught Sebastian who's just realized his father is a murderer, that one must accept the mistakes of one's father, "however much they may look up to them," revealing her own internal struggle with coming to terms with her father's crimes.
Perhaps, given the high Parental Abandonment rate in the Ace Attorney world, people just get over the loss of their parents very quickly. Right after her mother is arrested, Pearl Fey is happily going to the circus and hanging out with the guy who caused it. Though it is later implied that she didn't really understand what that all was about. She was 8 or so at the time, so that is possible. Also, Phoenix had her channeling Mia on the last day so she wouldn't see the trial and verdict herself.
Speaking of Parental Abandonment Apollo is abandoned by his mother who re-marries and carries on with her life, yet no one, including him, seems to care all that much, except for that one brief comment by the journalist Spark Brushel who called Trucy 'lucky' compared to Apollo in that she was kept while he was abandoned. During the fifth game, he helps his best friend out with his own mother's death by using his own background as his example, so he's clearly handling it very well.
Klavier Gavin has a lot of things to be down about. During the fourth game his police detective bandmate had smuggled contraband into the country and killed the Interpol agent who was tracking him and his own brother turned out to be a twisted psychopath who is responsible for two deaths, used Klavier to sabotage a talented lawyer's career, and has a severe case of Disproportionate Retribution. In the fifth game, you can add his instructor from high school, a perfectly upstanding and honorable individual, is killed simply because she was trying to be upstanding and honorable to the wrong person. Even if he's able to put aside friend and familial relationships to see justice done, there was no justice in Constance Courte's murder, which would surely send most characters into a swill of cynicism and disillusionment. Yet in spite of all this, his personality always remains a calm, suave, debonair ladies' man full of charm and charisma with no hint of internal struggle or pain.

Played for laughs in Goblins, where Biscuit the Orc states that 600 years of demonic torture barely fazed him since members of his clan are taught to accept loss without pain or regret to become immune to emotional pain. When told that his clan was wiped out 200 years ago, he responds with a simple "Meh, oh well".

Firefly:
River does not angst anywhere near as much as one would expect her to, considering what the Academy did to her. That isn't to say she doesn't have her moments, but she doesn't appear to fall into depression or mention any of the horrible things that were done to her. She does have a couple of sobbing fits, but these have as much to do with her mental instability as they do with her experiences. She gives off an impression of someone who is trying, in her more lucid moments, to move on from the horrible experiences she's had. Simon notes in one episode that she seems to be happier on Serenity than she was anywhere else.
The crew in general seem to try to get over various betrayals and deaths as quickly as they can, probably because as outlaws there isn't much chance for mourning. (In Serenity for example, Mal tells the crew to stop mourning the deaths of Shepherd Book and his people because all they can do now is avenge their deaths.

In Black Cat, interestingly enough, the series depicts Train's progress of maturity to be going from wangsting about the past to becoming very carefree. In the second half of the series, Train gets over Saya's death and stops stressing about a lot of things (most of which are pretty important and angst-worthy). For example, when shot accidentally by Creed with the Lucifer bullet, while everyone else (including Creed) panics and tells Train that he'll transform into a monster, Train just brushes it off and says he'll handle that when it comes. When Train turns into a kid, everyone stresses about it while he actually thinks it's kind of fun (his more immediate thoughts being whether they can save money on kid's meal and metro ticket prices). This is even lampshaded later by one of his past Chronos superiors, who asks him if he even cares that Creed is trying to bring about The End of the World as We Know It. Train's answer is no, and that he only cares about what's for lunch tomorrow.

Scarecrow Slayer: Mary is the Sole Survivor of this whole scarecrow ordeal. With several people, including her best friends and a guy who was in love with her, massacred right in front of her. You'd think that she would be at least a little bit upset by this. But after she blows the scarecrow up, she smiles and struts away like she hasn't a care in the world.

Rapunzel from Tangled seems pretty chipper despite being locked up in a tower her entire life with only her emotionally abusive mother as her human friend. It gets more noticeable later into the film after she finds out her mother kidnapped her as an infant, never loved her, has been lying to Rapunzel her entire life, and only kept her around for her magical powers. She also saw her mother suffer a Disney Villain Death. Despite all this, she still seems to be a Plucky Girl. Granted, she does have small symptoms like her emotional meltdown after first leaving her tower and when she first opens up at the campfire scene, showing that she is not completely fine. Rapunzel actually had more trauma due to Gothel during earlier development, where the darker script had her acting much more reluctant to leave her tower and more nervous around people.

Averted in The Fly (1986). As originally scripted and shot, the film ended with a hopeful epilogue in which Deuteragonist Veronica was in a relationship with Stathis again, and she was pregnant with his child, having aborted Seth's; during production, three alternate epilogues were also shot — one was similar to the first but she's no longer pregnant, two was she was single and not pregnant, three was she's single but visibly pregnant with Seth's child. Even the cast and crew didn't want the first two epilogues because Veronica returning to Stathis came off as a serious case of this given she'd just been seen mercy killing her true love Seth/Brundlefly at his request. David Cronenberg says that test audiences were so upset by that event that they simply couldn't accept a hopeful epilogue of any kind, so that ended up serving as the final scene.

Subverted in Spec Ops: The Line. After the white phosphorous incident, Lugo and Adams start freaking out and yelling at Walker. Walker's reaction? A brief silence, then "We need to keep moving."

In The Ant Bully, Lucas wakes up to find himself shrunk, gets kidnapped by ants, thrown into their anthill and finally put on trial where several of the ants are actively urging for him to be killed. The very next morning he treats this whole ordeal as an annoying inconvenience at most. Later on in the film, he does express some sadness over missing his family, but it's relatively little considering he might never get to see them or his former life again.

Dragon Ball Z:
Gohan's screentime can be summarized thusly. Four years old, kidnapped by screaming crazies twice in one day, learning second-hand that his father was dead, gets abandoned in the wilderness for months, then goes through Training from Hell until he develops what a particularly cruel critic might identify as Stockholm Syndrome. He then loses a father figure in a hideous battle against space aliens, battles some more space aliens in an attempt to revive him, loses biological father again when he gets lost in space and won't come home and doesn't tell anyone why. Biological father finally comes home a year and a half later, they go through three more years of Training from Hell (four, if you count the time chamber) and then Dad dies again and decides to stay dead. This is six or seven years of consistent, repeated emotional trauma, yet Gohan never stops acting like a happy, well-adjusted little nerd boy. ...Except for that whole "Saiyaman" phase, which was noted as being weird and unhealthy.
Vegeta, at least in the beginning. When he first hears of his home world's demise and near-extinction of his race as a child in the Bardock special, he brushes off the message and continues eating from one of the corpses he killed. And then there's his reaction to Raditz's death, where he says "Meh. He deserved it." However this might be a subversion: when he first dies at the hands of Freeza he begs Goku to avenge their race, meaning that deep down he might have cared about the Saiyans' demise. The anime gives a flashback where he admits to Nappa that he always knew Freeza destroyed his planet but as a Might Makes Right mentality, he'll rather train to kill him instead of angsting over it.
Android 18 is a minor example; after what is basically being physically Swallowed Whole by Cell's tail and enduring who knows what horrors inside his body and then later getting spat out, she shows no signs of being remotely traumatized upon waking up, seemingly being more concerned with learning Gohan beat Cell than the fact that she was Eaten Alive.
Goku provides multiple examples, which are lampshaded In-Universe:
Bulma asks Goku how he can be so happy when he tells her that he was abandoned in the woods, his grandfather died, and he was left alone for several years.
While everyone else is worried about the Cell Games and the possible end of the world, Goku is very chilled and chooses to spend his time hanging out with his family instead of training. This, naturally, has everyone worried.
Beerus continuously lays into Goku for his willy-nilly attitude towards the universe's possibility of being erased if they lose the Tournament of Power. He orders Goku to panic or emote something other than excitement.
Videl as well, who just tapped into her ki during the World Tournament Saga and got a taste of the super human strength, speed, and durability the Z-Fighters took for granted. Yet her torture at the hands (Or under the foot of) Spopovich didn't give her any lasting mental health issues.

Deconstructed in School-Live!. The girls seem to be in a happy Schoolgirl Series despite the Zombie Apocalypse. It's shown Yuki keeps everyone sane. Rii, the Team Mom, looks chipper and stable but is the most emotionally fragile of the girls and eventually undergoes a Sanity Slippage when things go From Bad to Worse. Kurumi is the funny Action Girl but having to kill zombies has an emotional toll on her, especially since her first kill was her crush. Sensei-chan Megu-nee is shown to have had a large amount of guilt due to feeling she could have done something about the apocalypse if she had opened her emergency manual earlier. The only reason Yuki is so genuinely happy is because she is delusional and has blocked out the zombies. In the past she was bullied due to her odd personality. In her hallucinations she sees herself as having a lot of friends. It's been stated she had occasional lapses of hallucinations when the zombies first appeared but was usually sane, though very unhappy, until Megu-nee's death caused her to repress everything.

The Mentalist: In Ball of Fire, Patrick Jane goes through an insane amount of trauma. He's kidnapped at gunpoint, sees someone he knows shot dead trying to help him, nearly succeeds at hypnotising the guy who kidnapped him only for them to be shot in front of him by the real kidnapper. Then he's held at gunpoint, fired at (simulated execution is a recognised form of torture), tortured with a cattleprod for an unknown amount of time but it seems to be most of an afternoon, nearly burned alive along with the person he cares about most in the world and nearly shot before being rescued in the nick of time. All in a day. In spite of the fact that Jane is not exactly a Navy Seal, the closest thing to emotional fallout from all this is that he no longer says things like, "pain is in the mind." Two episodes later he voluntarily goes undercover at a clinic that uses aversion therapy in the form of electric shocks.

New World of Darkness games:
Especially considering its predecessor, the entire setting of Geist: The Sin-Eaters manages this trope quite nicely. To wit: in order to become a Sin Eater, you have to 1) start out with some kind of connection to death, such as through some kind of psychic power; 2) you need to die; and 3) you need to make a deal with a Geist to come Back from the Dead. Though one would think this would lead to tons of Supernatural Angst, most Sin Eaters seem to believe that, now that they've already died once, there's no reason they shouldn't enjoy themselves till Death gets them again.
A different, darker take on this trope comes from the Spring Court of Changeling: The Lost. After being kidnapped by The Fair Folk, horribly abused, and escaping, they decided they would live it up as best as they could if only to spite their former captors. Subverted in that they really are still heavily traumatized by what happened to them in Arcadia, they're just in heavy denial and/or trying to sublimate their psychological issues through partying.

How I Met Your Mother: Ted’s kids in the series finale when they figured it out that the whole premise is their dad’s way of asking permission to date Robin again after their titular mother died six years ago prior to Ted telling the story. While it should be noted that the scene was filmed back in 2006 and realistically people had enough time to recover and move on in six years, the way the episode and scenes were put together made it look like that kids wanted their dad to date Robin again and don’t care about their dead mom which doesn’t help that the opening scene of the show has them groaning "Are we being punished or something?" and rolling their eyes.

In Runaways, six teenagers discover that their parents are supervillains and have to go on the run. They handle it remarkably well, barely complaining about being betrayed. But there are hints dropped that they've been traumatized like real teenage runaways — they just show it less. (Their motto is that no adult, ever, is to be trusted, and some of the kids — especially Karolina and Molly — approach Stepford Smiler territory in the early issues.) The use of this was lampshaded by Karolina and Xavin when the team is indulging in some (mostly appropriate) angst after Gert's death, where Xavin points out that Karolina's homeworld and at least one Skrull colony world have all but been destroyed in a war the two of them failed to stop, and everyone is angsting more about the death of one girl instead of two whole worlds.

In the Lords of the Underworld series, Gwen is kidnapped by mad scientists, caged for months in a glass dome so small she can't even lie down in it, and Forced to Watch many other captives being tortured and raped. This experience is treated by everyone as a bad thing, sure, but a day later Gwen is entirely re-acclimated to normal life and has no trauma or lasting emotional effects whatsoever note although the lack of physical harm is explained by her immortal nature.

Utilized similarly in The Legends of Treasure Island with the numerous sinister threats in the show, the fear of the crew losing each other was always prominent. Disney Deaths were frequent in many episodes, and very few got a particularly shattered reaction from the others (with a couple of exceptions, usually when Jim was in protective mode towards Jane).

Lilly of Katawa Shoujo does not bear any resentment toward her parents for leaving her behind in Japan with her sister(who, unlike her, is quite bitter), prompting Hisao to point out that she's "too kind" to them. She is, however, also a Stepford Smiler and The Stoic who rarely lets her emotional guard down, so it's difficult to tell whether this is how she actually feels.

Kingdom Hearts: Sora is worried for his parents (and the rest of Destiny Island civilization) for all of five minutes before setting out to save the world with a big grin on his face. Donald and Goofy specifically ask him not to angst, and in Sora's defense many people have a pretty high level of optimism at his age — the old "you're a teenager, you can solve any problem" thing. He does slip into momentary depression throughout the series in response to events (before being cheered up by friends/distracted by the task at hand), and it is implied that everything that has happened is slowly taking a toll on him.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: We see Sirius die, in a super dramatic, gut-wrenching scene. Then we finish the battle. Then we see Harry and Dumbledore have less than a five-minute conversation. Harry barely looks upset. That's it for the rest of the series. Drastically different from the book, in which Harry trashes Dumbledore's office and yells at him. He then spends most of the remainder of the year in solitude, until Luna comforts him...and even then, it takes him a couple of weeks to get over it.

There were many instances of abuse, death, etc. on Friends where the characters' lack of a sympathetic reaction made them seem very unlikable or tactless:
When Chandler and Joey are robbed of just about everything they own, Monica's reaction is a mundane "What happened?" then telling Rachel about her date with Chip.
Despite having had what most would consider a traumatic life, Phoebe is usually very throwaway about it, even using her mother's suicide to get the last muffin.
Monica and Chandler aren't quite as bad, but seem blase about their absolutely horrible childhoods. (Both involving Parental Neglect and borderline Abusive Parents). Then again, she is a Control Freak and he a Stepford Snarker, so their responses are subconsciously present.
In one episode, Monica discovers that her Aunt Sylvia died. Instead of being sad about it, she jumps up for joy and cheers, because she can now have her dollhouse.
The whole gang also get over breakups pretty fast. Even Ross and Rachel go back to happily being friends after they split. The only characters who react realistically are Monica and Chandler, as the fallout from their various breakups last several episodes. (Both characters seemed to be more romantically vulnerable than the others, though that made them more sympathetic rather than needy). Otherwise characters would shrug it off and be fine by the end of the episode.

Lennier on Babylon 5 lost family during the Earth/Minbari War when the Minbari warship Drala'fi (Black Star) was destroyed. Despite this, he holds no grudge against the person directly responsible for destroying the ship (Sheridan), nor the person who gave the order that started the war in the first place (Ambassador Delenn).

Seras Victoria from Hellsing. She's unnaturally cheerful, upbeat, and goofy for someone who's had all of her police partners killed, was nearly raped and killed by a vampire and then is actually turned into one. Also, during her childhood her father was murdered by burglars, her mother hiding her in a cupboard to protect her, and her mother was immediately murdered and raped (in that order) by them. It was because of this trope that Alucard had the interest in turning her into a Vampire, that she would still wish to live even after being through all of that.

Sailor Moon:
A lot of the characters have Parental Abandonment issues. Makoto was orphaned at a young age when her parents both died in a plane crash, and a car crash took Mamoru's. Neither of them are seen angsting about that, though Mamoru does have some outstanding issues with the amnesia it left him with that are resolved as part of the manga's first story arc. The manga does have a side story which shows that Makoto still has issues from her parents' deaths, namely that she panics and hides behind the curtains if she even sees an airplane on the television.
Usagi doesn't seem to angst much when confronting the first Big Bad Queen Metalia, who was responsible for the death of her and everyone she cared about in her previous life. In either version, the only one of the Senshi that displays any anger towards Metalia or Beryl is Minako, the case with the latter is justified since she's the only one of the senshi when they confront Beryl in the manga that regained her memories from their previous life. Everyone else, in both versions, there's no excuse.
Averted, however, in the anime with the aftermath of said battle. Usagi wants to be a normal girl and fears that she'll lose everyone again. While she deals with the former, she never truly gets over the trauma of the latter (which is explicitly shown in the R movie).
In the anime, Naru experiences the death of her first love as he is impaled in front of her and bleeds to death in her arms. Furthermore, because he wasn't even human and his body apparently disintegrated on death, she can't confide in pretty much anyone (including her family). While she clearly reacts to this in the episode itself and two episodes later it's shown she was out of school to grieve, she resolves it rather quickly at the end of that episode and is pretty much her old self again.

If Franziska von Karma is upset that Phoenix sent her father to jail for murder, she doesn't seem to show it. Her main concern is defeating him where Edgeworth failed in order to prove herself superior. This does eventually get addressed (very) briefly in the third game (where she mentions she isn't out for revenge for her father, implying that she's had time to think about it) and then more profoundly in Investigations 2, where she tells Kay, referring to a distraught Sebastian who's just realized his father is a murderer, that one must accept the mistakes of one's father, "however much they may look up to them," revealing her own internal struggle with coming to terms with her father's crimes.

Star Trek: The Next Generation tends to have this as a result of the Reset Button.
A typical example is the episode where Picard experiences the planet he grew up on destroyed and everyone he loved killed via implanted memories. There's a brief shot at the end when he looks sad, but then it's like it never happened. Ronald Moore said that the episode was sort of an accident; they were just concerned with making a good hour long story (and it is considered one of the best of the series) and didn't realize until it aired just how traumatized Picard should have been afterwards. They resolved to make a few continuity nods and then just continue.
"The Best of Both Worlds" makes it seem as if Picard is just going to shrug off being assimilated and turned into Locutus, despite looking a little haunted at the final shot. Nope, the very next episode, "Family" (Fan Nick Name: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part III") has Picard collapsing in tears about how the Borg essentially raped him and forced him to experience every moment. You might think it's Catharsis Factor in that episode, but nope. Fast forward to Star Trek: First Contact, and we find Jean-Luc has not gotten over it at all, and it's hinted he has nightmares about it all the time.
Played straight for Picard in "Chain of Command". Picard does express to Troi at the end of the episode that he is still feeling the emotional impact of his torture at the hands of the Cardassians, but by the next episode, it's as if it never happened. This carries through even when he's interacting with Cardassians in later episodes.
The episode "The Wounded" introduced Chief O'Brien's former CO, Captain Maxwell, whose wife and children were killed During the War with the Cardassians. Picard believes Maxwell's current unauthorized attacks on Cardassian ships are motivated by vengeance, but O'Brien insists Maxwell remained stoic and in good humour after his family's deaths and he must have a good reason for attacking the Cardassians. Turns out they're both right.
