Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Everyone has a tipping point, a Berserk Button, a threshold of shock and joy and weirdness that once crossed collapses all emotional reserve like a "Fawlty Towers" Plot. Some, however, have such an exceptionally high threshold that they'd probably greet the impending collapse of the universe with the same equanimity as cold tea.
Characters with Nerves of Steel are of steel in the same way a physical body can be Made of Iron — they are nigh-unshakable.
Those who have Nerves of Steel think when times are tough. They make decisions efficiently; they push their emotions aside, and so their decisions are not overly affected by them. They may be The Stoic, or they may be perfectly normal emotionally. Either way, their minds are never shoved aside when their emotion is. It is always thinking, a weapon as sharp as a sword. Characters with Nerves of Steel aren't intimidated by screams from those with a Hair-Trigger Temper, won't get upset if their Evil Plan is foiled (this is a morality neutral trait), they aren't likely to burst into tears when it turns out The Hero is Not Quite Dead and got better, and very probably won't even raise their voice to the man who murdered a Bus Full of Innocents unless the sound of their righteous ass-kicking is loud enough to require it. Even happy news and emotions aren't likely to cause exaggerated reactions of joy (though they probably enjoy a nice hearty laugh every now and then). When captured, they are defiant and likely planning their escape.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Reasons for this demeanor vary. They probably have Seen It All, are naturally Spock-like, have an iron-clad Stepford Smiler facade (though on the inside they probably are banging their head against his cage) or emotionally can't be made to feel extreme emotion, such as the Tin Man. This doesn't count if the character is an Empty Shell since there isn't anyone home to excite. The Extreme Doormat may count depending on the individual case (some are just too listless to care at all, not requiring any emotional control at all). Affably Evil villains and The Chessmaster are always composed as a result of everything going according to plan.
Even if this person doesn't have Psychic Powers, his incredible self-control often makes him resistant to those who do.
In short, someone with Nerves of Steel is immune to the Heroic BSoD, Villainous BSoD, and Villainous Breakdown. God help us all if this proves untrue.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })A good trait for a Badass Bookworm to have, at least if they want both halves at the same time. Note that nerves of steel may be hard to distinguish from Tranquil Fury at times. Previously susceptible characters may suddenly develop Nerves of Steel when it's The Last Dance. Showing a Stiff Upper Lip is a good way for a character to convince other people that they have Nerves of Steel. Compare Heroic Safe Mode, where the emotional/thinking part of the brain "shuts down" to allow for instinctual survival mechanisms to work unclouded by emotions. Post-Victory Collapse is when a character fakes having Nerves of Steel, but breaks down as soon as the danger passes. Not related to Balls of Steel, which is more literal, and has nothing to do with Boobs of Steel either. Contrast Nervous Wreck.

Sherlock:
John Watson. In the first episode, Sherlock mentions this trope by name while analyzing the man who shot a serial killer. At that exact moment, he catches sight of John and realizes who he's describing.
Sherlock has his moments, too. In the fourth episode, he's being threatened at gunpoint and is told that if he doesn't come up with a piece of information he doesn't have, John will be killed. Despite this clearly concerning him, he still remains relatively calm and thinks fast enough to deduce the information he needs. It helps that Irene gives him a vital clue at that moment by looking down at herself.
And both of them handle the finale of the first season ender pretty well — particularly the last few moments.
And in the same episode with Irene, John didn't as much as blink when Sherlock threw the CIA dude out the window.
And he calmly threatened death on a professional killer.
Also, Sherlock remained calm with Magnusson, and Mary remained calm when she did shoot Sherlock, though she did look apologetic.

From Worm:
Even in a city full of superheroes and supervillains, Skitter is an exceptionally cool customer. It's particularly evident in her fight against Mannequin, one of The Dreaded Slaughterhouse Nine — she comes up with her plan of attack literally while he is trying to slit her throat.
One of the reasons Tattletale is so ferociously effective is that she doesn't let pain, injury, or threat to life and limb stop her from using her smarts, her superpower, and her vulpine grin to break down any obstacle in front of her.
Miss Militia from the Protectorate East-North-East is also remarkably good at keeping her head in dangerous and chaotic situations.
Jessica Yamada, introduced in Interlude 18 (Donation Bonus #3), is an unpowered therapist specializing in working with superpowered individuals, most of whom could kill her as easily as swatting a fly. Even in the face of intense fear, she maintains a calm demeanor for her patients' benefit.

Bright Noa's family, in general, are also shown to keep their cool to an incredible extent. Whether it's Mirai keeping calm even while threatened at gunpoint in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam or her and her daughter talking about Char's plans despite an explosion going off close to their car in Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack.

Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After Superman causes the Batmobile to crash and rips the hood off, Batman's response is to stand up, stare the Kryptonian down and deliver a Badass Boast. Later, when Doomsday brings down the Batplane with its Eye Beams and Bruce finds himself about to be vaporized by the rampaging, unstoppable, Kryptonian abomination, his response is simply a fairly calm "oh shit".

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lee Jordan reacts to the new Police State that is actively hunting down and killing "undesirables" and dissenters by starting up Potterwatch, of which he is the announcer and continuously makes jokes at the regime's expense and goes out of his way to report on deaths and other things which the regime is doing everything in their power to hide despite the fact that they are actively hunting him and sometimes get so close that it delays his broadcasts.
Severus Snape, for years of lying to the face of Voldemort, who is among the best Legilimens/mind readers in the world and generally a terrifying, paranoid, most evil Dark Lord in history.

Chie Hori from Tokyo Ghoul. An incredibly short girl with absolutely zero combat ability, who has spent nearly the last decade regularly trolling Ghouls and coming out on top. Her friendship with Tsukiyama was cemented when he held her out an 8th story window and she didn't even blink. It isn't that she's foolish, even though she often gives that impression — instead, she's simply got the world's best poker face and a knack for out-witting people before they even realize they've been conned.

Bleach:
When Uryuu loses his powers, the only way to regain them is to have a giant, flaming energy arrow fired into an exact location 19mm to the right of his heart. This can only occur when his life is on the line, stretching his body and spirit to the absolute limit. In other words, not only does he have to be shot in a location that will kill him if it is off by a hair, but he has to be a moving target for it to work. His father, Ryuuken, who has to perform the shot, makes it look easy solely because he doesn't turn a hair when doing it. Later on, when he leaves the room and lights up a cigarette to relax, the moment strongly indicates it wasn't easy for him at all, he was simply that good at disciplining himself when it mattered. Fridge Brilliance, perhaps, as Ryuuken is also an extremely talented surgeon, a job that requires nerves of steel every day.
To everyone's surprise, Mizuiro turns out to have these. When he wakes up in a town that's been thrust into the spirit world and is therefore practically a ghost town, he reacts by stocking up on essentials — rations food, tasers, and other weapons. When attacked by a being that can literally vaporise things at the touch, he nonchalantly throws a bottle at him to test the enemy's capability. Upon realising that the rumour about this being vaporising things is true, he doesn't bat an eyelid and coolly throws a Molotov cocktail at him instead. He's only mildly surprised that it doesn't work and, for a moment, his companions are actually more nervous of him than they are of the Big Bad.

Tales of Berseria's Velvet Crowe didn't start as this, but after spending three years in a Hellhole Prison repeatedly killing all daemons dropped into her cell and surviving mainly off her desire for Revenge and her sheer hatred she holds for the Big Bad means she approaches dangerous situations more casually than normal people do. That said, she's still plenty emotional and there are plenty of things that can shake her. Rokurou Rangetsu is a more straight example, though his Blue-and-Orange Morality and Manchild state is partly to blame.

Tales Series:
Tales of the Abyss has Jade Curtiss as the Stepford Smiler version of this. His ability to be unfazed by any situation is occasionally lampshaded by the younger characters as something that freaks them out.
Tales of Vesperia's Yuri Lowell, as a partial Expy of the above Jade, is also similarly unfazed in the face of danger. It doesn't freak out his True Companions but they certainly think it's weird that facing death in the face only worries him somewhat. Subverted when it comes to Judith in regards to her saying she would cut her way out of a monster's stomach to win a fight. Yuri believes she could do that and finds her terrifying for that reason. Speaking of, Judith also fits this even more thanks to that.
Tales of Xillia and its sequel has Jude Mathis. As a medical student (and an actual practising doctor in the sequel) it makes that he would be trained in that regard...but he just naturally seems able to keep his cool in the face of danger. Might have to do with being a Teen Genius as much as his personality.
Milla Maxwell is much the same, though how much is her keeping her calm in the face of danger and her not valuing her life (in the first game) is up for debate. Her alternate version in the sequel subverts this trope, however.
Tales of Berseria's Velvet Crowe didn't start as this, but after spending three years in a Hellhole Prison repeatedly killing all daemons dropped into her cell and surviving mainly off her desire for Revenge and her sheer hatred she holds for the Big Bad means she approaches dangerous situations more casually than normal people do.

Grey's Anatomy: The season six finale is a moment of awesome for Cristina. Derek's been shot, and the lockdown has left no one but her to operate on him. If she doesn't, he will die. A few minutes later, the shooter comes in and sticks his gun in her face, demanding that she stop operating and let Derek die. She's scared, she's crying, but her hands don't shake because dammit she promised she would try to save her best friend's husband. She keeps. On. Operating.

A questline in Grand Theft Auto V has Trevor helping a pair of lunatics threaten and arrest anyone they think is an illegal immigrant. The last mission starts with Trevor running into one of their previous victims on the street and is informed that the man's family has been living in the US for two hundred years. Trevor tries to play it off, but the argument escalates until Trevor is pointing a gun at the man's head. He doesn't flinch and tells Trevor that if he wants to make things right, he'll take care of the men he had been working with. He continues on by saying he won't pay Trevor a single penny for doing so. Trevor, easily the most psychotic and violent GTA protagonist, can do nothing more but honor his demands.

Naruto: Itachi Uchiha. Every move is carefully calculated, and he never loses his cool. That Sanity Slippage from a couple of years ago? He totally faked it so Sasuke would kill him. And then after being freed from Kabuto's control when he's resurrected, he helps Killer Bee and Naruto fight the resurrected Nagato and calmly figures out how to beat Nagato's then-unbeaten gravity attack. He then, still calm, announces he's going to go defeat the resurrection technique itself.

Stand Still, Stay Silent: Tuuri after she gets potentially infected with a disease whose only possible outcomes are death and zombification. She actually seems more worried about her cousin and older brother's reactions to it and treats the latter's Power Strain Black Out as a Convenient Coma because that keeps her from having to tell him.

Jett Reno in Star Trek: Discovery is rarely fazed by anything. She survives ten months stranded on an asteroid caring for injured and unconscious crewmates with her sanity intact, and reacts to whatever danger occurs by identifying the quickest engineering solution and then doing it, no hesitation. Even the time crystal, which left Pike and Burnham gasping in horror at the Bad Future visions, doesn't faze her — she just locks everyone else out of the room, blinks hard, and keeps working until she's done.

Eternal Darkness, famed for abuse of the Sanity Meter, lacks the meter during Pious Augustus's chapter. Simply due to being before the meter is introduced to gameplay? Being the only battle-hardened professional soldier among the player characters? Or is it because the ancients decided to preserve his sanity? After all, they aren't so bad to look at by default, they choose to make those who look at them lose it.

Lie Ren from RWBY is extremely soft-spoken and stoic, and is more than capable of holding his own in a fight. Zigzagged in that his Semblance is one that literally mutes his emotions and those of others. This renders him and anyone he happens to be targeting completely undetectable to the Grimm.

With This Ring frequently shows the protagonist mentally working his way through whatever situation he faces — frequently with more internal dialogue than there would actually be time for — and reacting calmly and methodically, even if the chosen method is "railgun battery to the face." Likely justified since he wears a power ring that allows him to accelerate his thoughts and control his body's normally-involuntary functions like heart rate and sweating. It also helps that Guy Gardner specifically trains him to handle stressful combat situations like continual bombardment.

Despite not being as smart as others on this page, Goku from Dragon Ball rarely losing his cool and remains calm even when the situation appears completely hopeless. While even Piccolo can succumb to panic or despair, Goku is usually seen thinking of a plan or even humoring how things seem hopeless while smiling. Among his group of friends, he is often seen as the person to look to when things go really bad even when he is not currently the strongest fighter.

Tales of Vesperia's Yuri Lowell, as a partial Expy of the above Jade, is also similarly unfazed in the face of danger. It doesn't freak out his True Companions but they certainly think it's weird that facing death in the face only worries him somewhat. Subverted when it comes to Judith in regards to her saying she would cut her way out of a monster's stomach to win a fight. Yuri believes she could do that and finds her terrifying for that reason. Speaking of, Judith also fits this even more thanks to that.

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ:
Haman Karn is famous for her iron composure, not even blinking when facing meters-long blades punching right at her face (because she knows that Judau would never kill an unarmed opponent). She loses her cool precisely once, after she shoots Judau's sister, and Judau responds with a gigantic phantom of pure psychic rage, causing her to break and run away as fast as she can.
Mineva Lao Zabi, having been raised in part by Haman, inherits some of that iron spine. In Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, she doesn't even flinch when she's taken hostage with a gun put to her head, instead telling her captors that they have zero understanding of who they're dealing with if they honestly think threatening her life will stop their attackers.
Leina Ashta, Judau's sister, shows the results of her social Training from Hell under Glemmy Toto when she manages to give a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to the Federation's leaders, telling them to shut up and sit down while suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach.
Bright Noa's family, in general, are also shown to keep their cool to an incredible extent. Whether it's Mirai keeping calm even while threatened at gunpoint in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam or her and her daughter talking about Char's plans despite an explosion going off close to their car in Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack.

Jenny Myers from Friday the 13th: The Game has a perfect Composure stat, making her breathing less louder when hiding in closets or under beds while also decreasing the chances of Jason spotting her with Sense.

Soldiers using the 3D Maneuver Gear properly in Attack on Titan need to be able to react and change directions in an instant to avoid disaster while maintaining perfect balance. Levi, who is the World's Strongest Man, is consistently stoic and calm that it's near impossible to break him from that state.
Erwin Smith. There is a reason that he is Commander of the Scout Corps. Threaten him with execution? He will stand there and relay his entire plan to you so you can complete it when he's dead. Titan limbs flying around sending others scrambling for cover? He will stand there and watch without batting a lash. A Titan bites into his arm and drags him off? He will continue to yell orders to his troops, then show up later missing an arm, to save the day himself. He doesn't have a single nerve not made of steel.

Assassination Classroom: In one episode, Nagisa and Karma sneak into the International Space Station to get some classified data on Koro-sensei. They pretend to have a bomb and use that to threaten the astronauts. The astronauts aren't phased in the slightest, pointing out that they already have one of the most dangerous jobs known to man, so a bomb threat made by a couple of school kids is nothing to them. But as it turns out, the astronauts are perfectly willing to give up the data without a fuss anyway.

The Dresden Files:
Harry Dresden is normally exhausted, bleeding, in spiritual if not physical agony, angry, terrified and running out of magic with the fate of the world on his shoulders — none of which ever stops him from thinking and finding the answers he needs. The short story "Aftermath", from his friend Murphy's point of view, shows that in the moments where his narration reveals that he's most afraid, he transforms from a gawky nerd into a human avatar of power, command, and defiance, so fearsome that she's afraid of him even though she trusts him with her life.
Dresden notes this about the mercenary Kincaid and (accurately) calls out that Kincaid is not purely human as a result. During pitched battles with supernatural enemies, Kincaid remains perfectly calm and doesn't miss a single shot, something beyond the capabilities of regular human.
Arthur Langtry is mostly portrayed as an Obstructive Bureaucrat who has it out for Harry personally, with his accomplishments as leader of Magical Society mostly offscreen. In Turn Coat, when The Mole unleashes a deadly monster in a White Council gathering, he wards it back, formulates a battle plan, and telepathically coordinates all 200 wizards present with 3D visual aids, all within three seconds.

Gendo Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion. He only expresses emotion when his surrogate daughter Rei is in mortal peril or about to abandon him. He calmly assesses and discusses options about the situation while his actual son might be being boiled alive, or trapped in a dimensional pit, or about to attempt to attack him with a giant robot because he's tired of his dickery. At one point he's half-coated in blood by an Angel duel happening right in front of him, and he doesn't even flinch. It's not that he doesn't care; he does, deeply. He's just... very inexpressive. There's a certain amount of self-loathing there as well.

ANZAC Girls: Instead of panicking when she's faced with a catastrophic lack of anything resembling proper facilities or adequate supplies at the field hospital on Lemnos Island, Matron Grace Wilson not only keeps a cool head but keeps her nurses calm as well, then sets about fixing the problem to the best of her ability and making do with what she's got. In real life, the real Grace Wilson wound up with an unheard-of 2% mortality rate — almost miraculous given the era and circumstances. It got her the Royal Red Cross.

Mazinger Z: The Professor Gennosuke Yumi. Eighteen-meters-tall killer robots are advancing towards his Institute? Mount Fuji is about of erupting and burying them under burning lava? Squads of armed soldiers are besieging them under the threat of set off an earthquake under their feet if they do not surrender? A spy is aiming one gun towards him? He has been captured and is being used like a hostage? It happens all the time! Basically, Yumi is a scientist, hence he refuses to panic and instead of it he uses his analytical mind to study the trouble and find a solution quickly. He is so good keeping his cool he can come across like cold and aloof sometimes. Usually, he only expresses emotion when one of the kids — Kouji, his daughter Sayaka or their friends — are in serious and immediate danger.
Usually you would not associate Kouji Kabuto with this trope since he is a Hot-Blooded character, but he is surprisingly good keeping his coolness when he needs thinking quick to save himself or someone else.

The protagonist from Persona 4 has them, even more so should you pick the right dialogue choices. Not to say he doesn't show emotions like confusion or panic, it's just that he manages to stay calm and collected regardless. When emotions run high, he often gets the option to tell others to calm down. In fact, late in the game, telling the others this is crucial should you want to avoid the first Bad Ending.
Golden has a scene that exemplifies this: On the route to the true ending, if the Jester Link has been ranked up to 6 before the Disc-One Final Dungeon, it will auto-advance at certain points past it. After Rank 9, the protagonist has a choice to confront the character in question... whom then pulls a gun on them. One of his responses to this is "You won't shoot me.", and in response the character does! Said bullet whizzes dangerously close to the protagonist's head... whom doesn't even flinch from it.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Nobody is braver than Captain Steve Rogers, not a humanoid tsunami who can punch through mountains, nor even the god of thunder himself, and hence it is he, but a mere mortal, who leads The Avengers to a crushing victory against an army of alien invaders.
Only one other Avenger may give Steve a run for his money when it comes to bravery, that being a certain Anthony Edward Stark the man who personally flew a nuke that was going to destroy New York through a portal, fully knowing it was one-way trip but managed to save the day and gained Steve’s respect in the process. Avengers: Infinity War takes this even further as Tony having had Thanos throw a moon at him and seen him defeat all his teammates including Doctor Strange, still stands up to Thanos and fights him till his armour breaks and he gets impaled. Even the Mad Titan himself states Tony has won his respect for sheer bravery.
Hela, who used to be Odin's Executioner, fought the entire army of Asgard without showing any sign of fear and won, though it turned out that she had little reason to be afraid of them, despite how formidable they were shown to be in the past. However, later, when confronted with both Surtur and the prophesized destruction of Asgard, she only paused for a moment before determinately raising her sword to attack him, even though it was an unwinnable fight.
Special mention to Nebula as she’s the only hero who doesn’t despair after half the universe is turned to dust and still remains stoic in the face of dying stranded in space at the start of Avengers: Endgame.

Black Lagoon has a number of characters who are remarkably good at keeping their cool under pressure, with Chang as probably the main example. He remains perfectly calm and collected even while a psychopathic killer is trying to kill or keep him pinned down with a machine gun.

Kyoko Kirigiri in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. She has some Not So Stoic moments here and there, but the insanity of the plot never seems to affect her otherwise. The one time she admits to being genuinely nervous, Naegi doesn't notice any change at all.

How Lana of Archer got her job. During her animal rights protest phase, her and a few fellow hippies parked outside a fur store waiting to splash someone with paint. When said someone turned out to be Malory, she responded with a .44 Magnum aimed at them. When everyone but Lana scattered, Malory knew she had a spy.

In the X-Wing Series, Wedge Antilles is said to alternately have cold-space lubricants and ice water in his veins. He just about invariably keeps cool and adjusts to new situations. Certainly, Wedge feels emotions, some strongly, but he's well able to analyze and understand them. He's only shown losing control once — when someone uses Fantastic Racism to diss one of his nonhuman pilots, who just died to save the man, he pulls a Neck Lift and never mind that the other man is taller.
Admiral Teren Rogriss, an Imperial fleet commander who ends up briefly working with the Republic Solo Command, is noted to have these by his enemies. He amply demonstrates by playing chicken with kilometer-long capital ships. His Interdictor-class cruiser isn't much in a fight but can prevent a Hyperspeed Escape by Warlord Zsinj's flagship — as long as it remains in range. Zsinj sends several vessels against him but can't beat the Imperial-class Star Destroyers backing up Rogriss's ship, so he decides to set one of his cruisers on a collision course to force the (smaller and lighter) Interdictor to turn aside. Zsinj starts worrying the second he identifies the officer in charge since he knows his own captain will flinch first. In the end, that captain is killed and the burning hulk of his ship is locked into its course. Rogriss stays past the last second, maneuvering out of the collision using a canny modification of his ship's systems, but also willing to take the risk that it wouldn't work to allow his allies time to keep fighting Zsinj.

Cr1TiKaL. That man fears nothing. Even Five Nights at Freddy's, which is memetic for scaring people, not only fails to scare him but bores him to the point he starts telling a story about his teen years to pass the time. Thus far the only thing that's ever scared him was a leaf falling in his peripheral vision.

The protagonist in Metro 2033 is resistant to psychic anomalies. At least a few times in the game, he and several others are attacked by something indescribable and unnatural and he's able to resist it. This is also why he's able to withstand the Dark Ones's psychic communication without going insane.

Nezha from Sword Art Online Progressive calmly admits his culpability in a scam that resulted in many players being swindled out of their equipment while facing the rest of the "clearers" — a group of the best players, who'd just downed the boss of the second floor (albeit with Nezha's help), despite knowing that the players could very well kill him for what he'd done.

Mass Effect:
Commander Shepard, especially if the Sole Survivor background is chosen. Keeping his/her cool while the rest of his/her unit panicked under attack from nightmarish Thresher Maws was what got him/her noticed enough to be considered for the Spectres. Ditto his/her feat in the War Hero origin, where Shepard effectively stared down an entire invading army until reinforcements arrived. This isn't even getting into what happens in the story proper. While s/he does slowly get ground down by The Chains of Commanding and all the death s/he sees, this doesn't stop him/her from, at one point, effectively facing down a 160m tall Reaper, on foot, while it's firing at him/her with barely any hint of fear.
Joker's performance in general, and at the end of the first game in particular; he isn't even nervous trying to land the Mako APC in a fifth of the normal minimum landing zone, just intent. It's a stark contrast to his attitude outside of the pilot's seat, though.

The eponymous Bayonetta virtually never shows any form of fear or panic in either game, regardless of the situation. The only couple of times we see her worried or upset are when those close to her are in danger. Other times, she'll either just snark at the immediate danger, or get annoyed with the enemy's rambling and attack it.

The Flash: The often-underestimated Detective Joe West. When an unstoppable metahuman serial killer breaks into his home and threatens him, Joe calmly talks to him and refuses to call for help, knowing that's exactly what the villain wants. He persists even under torture. He only looks worried when he sees Cecille, but even then he mentally shouts to her not to call for help, hoping that her residual telepathy picks up on it. Even then, the detective spent this time analyzing the guy, even figuring out that Cicada is a father.

Sam Sprinkles in Zebra Girl shows this off on multiple occasions, such as when he was caught in an alley facing a pair of werewolves with claws as long as his hands. Although later on he explicitly admits to himself that he has lost this trait, either due to torture at Sandra's hands or by falling in love.

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED: Lacus Clyne. The girl is never visibly shaken by anything that happens in the series, always maintaining a calm and cheerful demeanor... even when informed that her father has been assassinated, she carries on and does what needs doing. The only time she shows any loss of control is in a private moment near the end with Kira, where she breaks down crying from everything that's happened and hugs him. One scene later and she's back to her usual unshakable demeanor.

Star Trek
Spock displays this.
Kirk often does, too.
In a Star Trek: TOS/Star Trek: The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine crossover novel, The Return, Dr. Bashir was doing some very delicate operation and the Red Alert klaxons went off. Data was sure that the patient was dead because the noise would have startled Bashir, but no, he kept his scalpel very still. Then he contacted the bridge. "Turn off the alarms in sickbay. I held myself still once but I don't think I could do it again."
Makes you wonder why the loud klaxon sounds when an operation is underway. Wouldn't this have come up before?
And of course, Data does this. Though "Fiber optic nerves" would be more accurate in his case.
Jett Reno in Star Trek: Discovery is rarely fazed by anything. She survives ten months stranded on an asteroid caring for injured and unconscious crewmates with her sanity intact, and reacts to whatever danger occurs by identifying the quickest engineering solution and then doing it, no hesitation. Even the time crystal, which left Pike and Burnham gasping in horror at the Bad Future visions, doesn't faze her — she just locks everyone else out of the room, blinks hard, and keeps working until she's done.
Star Trek: Picard: In "Absolute Candor", Emmet (the Emergency Tactical Hologram) is totally nonchalant when he reports to Rios that La Sirena is seconds away from being obliterated by Vashti's security net.

Only one other Avenger may give Steve a run for his money when it comes to bravery, that being a certain Anthony Edward Stark the man who personally flew a nuke that was going to destroy New York through a portal, fully knowing it was one-way trip but managed to save the day and gained Steve’s respect in the process. Avengers: Infinity War takes this even further as Tony having had Thanos throw a moon at him and seen him defeat all his teammates including Doctor Strange, still stands up to Thanos and fights him till his armour breaks and he gets impaled. Even the Mad Titan himself states Tony has won his respect for sheer bravery.

All of the main cast of Chrono Hustle fits this, but it's especially notable with Mary Bishop. Jack Masterson is a con artist and thus is used to thinking his way out of tricky situations. Melinda Summers is a TRD agent and is thus trained to deal with all sorts of strange things. Mary, meanwhile, is just a simple farm girl from the Old West, who manages to deal with a crew of pirates when she accidentally ends up in that era.

Nerves of Steel is a talent in Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader, which allows you to re-roll pinning tests. A better way or representing this trope would be taking the Fearless talent or the From Beyond trait, which make you completely immune to fear or pinning, or having an unhealthy amount of Insanity Points.

Ace of the Diamond: Protagonist Eijun Sawamura, despite being Hot-Blooded by nature, is usually able to keep calm and composed when things get dire for the Seidou team, and he tends to perform very well under pressure. By contrast, his rival Furuya, who is The Stoic, breaks down easily and his game starts to deteriorate whenever he gives a hit. This is a major factor in Coach Kataoka's decision to choose Eijun over Furuya as the main pitcher against the strongest opponents in the practice games during the second year, and giving him the ace number come the summer tournament.

A Song of Ice and Fire:
The prologue-only Waymar Royce from Book 1: A Game of Thrones, in spite of being something of an Upper-Class Twit, did not panic upon coming face to face with one of the Others. He calmly drew his sword and dueled the icy fiend, actually holding his own. He lost and wound up a wight, but still.
Stannis Baratheon is somewhat infamous for being dogmatically stubborn and cool under pressure. The fact that he doesn't seem to emote or react like most people do not help his already terrible PR.
Oberyn Martell shows absolutely no fear going up against Gregor Clegane, a.k.a. The Mountain That Rides. While he does back up this fearlessness, by absolutely dominating almost the entire fight, his Suicidal Overconfidence gets the better of him at the worst moment.

One Piece:
Nico Robin should qualify. She's the one on the upper right of a previous page image not losing her cool.
It feels like Luffy may have been born without the capacity for fear at times e.g when he has The Government flag burned and Spandam points out he just declared war on the highest authority in the world and Luffy’s response is just: “BRING IT ON”. Luffy also didn’t hesitate to attack Kaido the World's Strongest Man an action so ballsy (and stupid) the people of Wano were stunned.
Zoro and Sanji both probably count as well. Sanji's been shown to be very efficient at dealing with a rapidly crumbling situation and saving his fellow Straw Hats, Sanji has also frequently stood up to god-like foes (e.g Enel) and heartily mocked them after taking their powerful attacks head on. Zoro never loses his cool (except at the other Straw Hats), but he's a little too happy to pick a fight with other swordsmen, and tends to consider options that are too extreme to be plausible, to qualify fully for this.
No matter how dire the situation, Law almost always has a smug demeanor and has no reservations about Flipping the Bird to anyone, even if he's on the receiving end of a beating from them. Even when he's on the verge of being murdered, he (almost) goes out laughing and flipping his killer off. Then again, that D. in his real name probably gives that away; people with the D. tend to do that).
Jimbei was not only completely unafraid of Big Mom (which saved him from her Touch of Death powers) but he even takes a moment to lay down a cup of sake and formally leave her crew with a sincere thank you, the first person to ever do so without dying. Big Mom was so dumbfounded that it actually takes her a brief moment before she tries to kill him again.

The Boys: James Stillwell, the man from Vought-American who is in charge of the heroes-division. He is a completely normal human without powers of any kind and is regularly surrounded by people who could reduce him to a stain on the walls, floor, and ceiling without effort. Yet he always remains completely calm and unperturbed at all times, even when threatened with death by said supers. The Homelander remarks that he might just have met a real superhuman.

Brock Sampson of The Venture Bros. is a terrifying Blood Knight, but his own reactions are mostly very low-key.
Dr. Venture, the man he's assigned to bodyguard, is also an example. A very, very weird subverted or zigzagged example where his lack of reaction comes not from bravery, but simply from being a Seen It All character in a Fantasy Kitchen Sink World Gone Mad. He's not fearless or anything, he's just been so desensitized to violence and bizarre things that he's stopped caring.

Code Geass has the main Anti-Hero protagonist Lelouch vi Britannia. In episode one alone, though he freaks out over the situation he finds himself — among terrorists and then in the centre of a massacre — he manages to keep a level head to do his best to extract himself and the Mysterious Waif who is the real target from the dangerous situation. And once he gets his Geass? Well, being able to calmly stand there as a giant mecha shoots around him is only the beginning... Lelouch might be a Large Ham emotional mess, but within a crisis or situation he's able to keep his cool unless certain triggers are pressed.

Elysium: Carlyle is impressively composed when his Bugatti SSTO is shot down, and even sets an ambush, immediately after crash-landing, for Max and Julio by sending only one of his droids out to kill them, and waiting for them to leave cover before deploying the second. However, he (like Delacourt, and, it's somewhat implied, many Elysians), seems slightly robotic, which may be the source of his imperturbability. Mind you, he still had the occasional small spazz and yelp. It's still impressive that he wasn't screaming and flailing.

Ender of Ender's Game: despite the enormous pressure piled on him by the teachers and his almost complete isolation, he never loses his temper and keeps on studying and winning the games; even when he's confronted by an entire gang of bigger boys out for his blood, or when the teachers stack the games completely against him, he still doesn't panic and wins with brutal efficiency. In the final stages of his training he's so worn out he's one step away from going insane but he still keeps on winning every battle.

Horatio Hornblower: He displays these in war and in gambling. For example, at one point, a lit explosive lands on the deck at his feet. He reaches down and calmly pulls out the fuse. He looks up and sees that everyone else had dived for cover, and they are now staring at him like he's the bravest man on the planet. He manages to be exasperated because no other course of action had even occurred to him.

Game of Thrones:
Ned Stark seems awfully calm when surrounded by Lannister soldiers, with Jaime Lannister in front of him.
Arya Stark is developing these as she goes from horrifying experience to horrifying experience. She is absolutely unafraid of characters such as Tywin, Melisandre and the Hound who terrify everyone else in the series.
Granted, he knows his sister is close by and has his back, but Jojen never loses his affable tone even when Osha has a spear to his neck — and a full-grown direwolf is baring its teeth at the same time.
Tywin is very nonchalant of Tyrion threatening to kill him, even after finally being shot down with a crossbow.
When Bronn is challenged by Sandor Clegane, he is less "Oh, Crap!" and more "oh well". It is very rare to see Bronn in distress. This is usually because he's so badass that things rarely turn against him to begin with, but even when they do he takes it in stride. The exceptions are in Season 5 when his engagement is annulled, costing him his imminent Lordship, and later on when Tyene has him poisoned and on the brink of death. Even in the latter scenario, he's rotting in a dungeon with a slim chance of getting out soon and is perfectly content to stay there singing to himself for as long as he has to. Season 7 also brings an exception with the Battle of the Blackwater Rush, which has him quite distressed at fighting a battle against the Dothraki khalasars and a damn dragon, and even then he holds it together long enough to kill said Dothraki chasing him, deal a crossbow bolt to Drogon and then save Jaime's ass by tackling him out of the way of Drogon's fire.
Daenerys is the blood of the dragon and a dragon is not afraid. Right from episode one, she's been showing the kind of reserve and spine a ruler of realms should have. She's been insulted, intimidated and threatened in various unpleasant ways by several powerful people. None of them managed to so much as affect her expression, much less her resolve. Reaches a CMOA when she refuses to back down against Drogon's black rage in Daznak's Pit. If she had; he probably would have devoured her.
Stannis, as is his book counterpart, as his reaction to half his fleet being decimated by Wildfire is pretty much to grit his teeth and go charging at the King's Landing anyway.

In Fate/stay night, Servant Archer is singled out as having these more than any other Servant due to cultivating battle experience as a way to make up for the fact that he had very few natural gifts. It's actually an ability of his called Eye of the Mind which is basically keeping a calm, calculating head while in combat.
Servant Assassin also has shades of this, its an ability called Vitrification, which means the guy can keep a calm mind at all times. Possibly it's due to his Extreme Doormat nature, but things like having his lungs detonated from the inside, being minutes away from death due to Mana deprivation, or being eaten alive don't seem to affect his mind much.
Kuzuki Souchirou. He's more of an Extreme Doormat than Assassin, sure, but it doesn't change the fact he's basically a Muggle who faces superpowered Servants without the slightest hint of fear or anxiety. Or any other emotion for that matter...
In the prequel, Emiya Kiritsugu is also an excellent example. Subverted, as ends up breaking down by the end.

Exactly how much fear is left to get rid of when you're willingly going through the operation led a guy with the title of berserker-surgeon is debatable.

Represented in Warhammer 40,000 in different ways:
Space Marines have the special rule "And They Shall Know No Fear," representing how their biological modifications and mental conditioning have left them without a real fear response. They can fall back if defeated in close combat or after suffering heavy casualties from enemy fire, but this is a Tactical Withdrawal rather than a rout, and the Space Marines automatically regroup after doing so.
One of the signs of how far the Chaos Space Marines have fallen is that they do not have this rule. Their nerves are very much not steel, and they know fear. Cypher is unusual since he's a Chaos Space Marine who still has the "And They Shall Know No Fear" rule.
Units with the Fearless take this one step further — they're sufficiently determined, zealous, bloodthirsty, or stupid that they automatically pass any Morale checks they would be called upon to take. This lets them sidestep Tank Shock attempts and return to their formation without losing cohesion, but this disregard for their own safety can see them take additional casualties when outnumbered in close combat.
Nerves of Steel is a talent in Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader, which allows you to re-roll pinning tests. A better way or representing this trope would be taking the Fearless talent or the From Beyond trait, which make you completely immune to fear or pinning, or having an unhealthy amount of Insanity Points.
Subverted with the World Eaters, the chosen Legion of War God Khorne, who are lobotomized so as to become completely fearless... but end up as screaming lunatics who live only to rush at the enemy and decapitate them with chainaxes.

The Zombie Knight has Roman's secretary Gina. Without even being able to fight, she waltzed into a castle overrun with superpowered psychos from Abolish and riddled it with eavesdropping devices, then spent weeks holed up listening to the bug feeds (which often include the sounds of Abolishers gruesomely killing people) and feeding info to her allies. All while knowing that at any time a curious Abolish reaper might spot her soul and bring the supervillains down on her.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: Rarity the unicorn is a fun example. She's usually an overly-dramatic Drama Queen, but is also utterly unflappable in the face of actual danger. Her reaction to having her hair magically turned into a literal rats' nest is to panic and scream for a mirror, but being captured and enslaved by the diamond dogs results in... mild annoyance, with her eventually freeing herself. Incidents of physical danger are almost invariably treated with reason and calm, while annoyances rate extended wangst.

Doctor Who:
The Doctor's companions sometimes have this:
In "The Face of Evil", Leela's "fight or flight" response doesn't have a "flight" setting.
Romana II evidently picked them up quickly after jousting against the Daleks, considering how she stayed calm and scheming after witnessing a horrific murder of a scientist by Count Scarlioni to intimidate her.
The Doctor himself can be described as having this, as he regularly risks his life and confronts danger with composure. In "The Satan Pit", he literally laughs in the face of the Devil, in "The Big Bang" he carries on without visible nerves after having seen his future self near death and in "Hell Bent" he literally stands in front of a firing squad without flinching. He is also unperturbed at gruesome sights, although sometimes saddened — in "Cold War" he quite clinically examines a dismembered corpse. Not to mention the fact that he can even carry on living and being cheerful after everything he's seen and lost.

Child of the Storm has several examples:
Most of the Avengers qualify, but Steve and Natasha are the stand-outs — Steve because he tends to internalise his freak-outs, when they happen, and Natasha because she's just that opaque (not only has she really Seen It All, she's not at all prone to dramatics).
Bucky Barnes, both as the Winter Soldier and afterwards. Even his Not So Stoic moment as the Winter Soldier in chapter 60 of the first book is largely internal. In the sequel, he's almost exclusively calm and composed, with the one moment when he was genuinely agitated (when Harry looked like he was about to snap and go Dark Phoenix on Seamus Finnegan, who'd unwittingly pushed a Trauma Button) was noted by Cedric Diggory as being decidedly unusual.
Dumbledore keeps his cool at all times, during battles, and even in the face of a half-mad Doctor Strange and the Phoenix herself. Twice, in the latter case.
Doctor Strange, meanwhile, tends to be somewhat kooky and occasionally coldly terrifying, but as the time-travelling seer who makes the Endless themselves dance on his puppet strings, he is invariably unfazed by everything that crosses his path... until his Not So Stoic moment, which encompasses most of the Forever Red arc of the sequel. As a result, this leads to a Mass "Oh, Crap!" from everyone else.

In Person of Interest, all the main heroes (and most of the villains, too) are stoic in the face of deadly danger, but Sameen Shaw takes it right over the top. She has a mood disorder that means she might be genuinely incapable of feeling fear.

JAG: Clayton Webb; while he can be annoying, the only picture of him panicking was in a flashback in one episode. In other times, he is never fazed.

It's relatively early in Order of Tales that Koark first shows his ability to keep his wits about him in the face of danger: when he has been accused of murder and brought before the Oceanqueen of Tenshells, he is obviously terrified, but speaks easily and eloquently in his own defense nevertheless.

Criminal Minds: Hotch. Everyone from a serial killer to a snarky defense attorney to Strauss has done something that should unsettle him. He generally handles this by taking a moment, then delivering a line that explains their failings with a mix of calm and condescension.

Bishop Claudo in The Arts of Dark and Light may be discomfited by assassins, sorcerers and haughty elfkings, but he never loses his wits, remaining at least outwardly calm and confident even when his life is directly threatened.

Tales of Xillia and its sequel has Jude Mathis. As a medical student (and an actual practising doctor in the sequel) it makes that he would be trained in that regard...but he just naturally seems able to keep his cool in the face of danger. Might have to do with being a Teen Genius as much as his personality.
Milla Maxwell is much the same, though how much is her keeping her calm in the face of danger and her not valuing her life (in the first game) is up for debate. Her alternate version in the sequel subverts this trope, however.

The Shahnameh: Rostam displays this on multiple occasions including:
He goes to battle against the mounted and heavily armed Ashkboos with only a bow and two arrows. He shoots down Ashboos's horse with one arrow. The thoroughly rattled Ashkboos fires a barrage of arrows at Rostam who doesn't even move. Then Rostam shoots his only remaining arrow with dead accuracy.
When Esfandiar arrives to arrest Rostam they shake hands and Esfandiar squeezes Rostam's hand so hard the veins under his nails pop and start to bleed. Not only does this not faze Rostam, but he also delivers some good-humored badass boasts and goes home to prepare for battle.
When he sneaks into the Div-e Sepid's cave, he finds the demon sleeping. Instead of taking the opportunity to slay the monster in his sleep, he lets out a battle cry and fights him only when he's fully awake.
Bahman fearing for his father Esfandiar's life in his battle against Rostam tries to assassinate him by hurling a boulder from a hill to crush Rostam. The hunting party accompanying Rostam drop what they're carrying and dive out of the way. Rostam simply kicks the rolling rock away from him!

Deadlands has a character trait called nerves o' steel, but this Trope is more effectively represented by the level-headed advantage: the cool-headed hombre's lack of panic usually results in more flexibility with initiative in a combat round than others possess. Used well, a level-headed character can almost choose when to act in a round, representing a mind that is constantly looking for the perfect time to strike.

Phoenix Wright from the Ace Attorney franchise. He's generally easily spooked or disheartened, but characters note time and again that he's at his best when under pressure and true enough he is pretty much unflappable once he gets going.
His friend and rival, Miles Edgeworth, is similarly known for his ability to keep his head under any circumstances. In his case, it's because he has an unshakable commitment to the truth and simply will not let anyone get in the way or bully him off the path. He even has the nerve to say as much to a man holding him at gunpoint in his own office.
Godot in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations. Thuggish Loan Shark in the courtroom with an intimidating roar and Brooklyn Rage got everyone else in the courtroom hiding under desks or behind walls? Godot simply boasts about being the one to bring in said thug.

Firefly:
Simon Tam displays this in "Ariel". River does in "Objects in Space".
Simon operating on Kaylee in the pilot episode with (as far as he knew) the possibility that he and River might be killed or turned over to the Alliance hanging over his head.
Also, directing Zoe in operating on him in "Objects in Space". Including warning her when he's about to pass out.
It's In the Blood.
Simon is a classic Sugar-and-Ice Personality and is stoical a lot of the time. River had an even harder time in "Objects in Space". She had her amygdala torn out after all and thus is flooded with emotion
Wash is able to go from the funny sarcastic guy to completely calm and in control in mere moments as well, as best seen in the Pilot in where he shows us just WHY Malcolm and Zoe have such trust in him and provides us with one of the best Crowning Moments Of Awesome in the series by outmaneuvering the Reavers without losing that stoic calm.
Also in the Movie, outmaneuvering the Reavers while flying directly into the thick of an Alliance armada. When Mal panics and tries to direct him, "No, no, no, no!" Wash simply matches his tone, "Yes, yes, yes, yes!" and keeps his bearing.
Zoe walks into the room where her husband and her oldest friend and comrade are being tortured and cuts the villain off before he can even finish presenting his impossible dilemma, all without changing expression. When she gets given Wash and Mal's ear, she calmly accepts both, then returns to the ship and puts the ear on ice before heading back out for the rescue mission.
her response to Wash's death in Serenity is almost equally flat. She freaks out initially, but no more than a few seconds later, she is coolly walking off the ship, checking her weapons, and telling the others that "he's not coming."

Irene from Dawn of a New Age: Oldport Blues has been shown capable of keeping her calm even under great duress, or when dealing with the inherent Body Horror of her power (such as rationally deciding to merge her hand into Melissa's neck to keep the other girl from turning to smoke).

Inaho Kaizuka of Aldnoah.Zero raises this to the level of a superpower. He's not just cool under pressure, he's ALWAYS completely calm and calculating, which is the main reason why he's able to repeatedly go up against Super Robots piloted by trained Knights, using an obsolete Real Robot and nothing more than basic schooling. While his opponents rave and rant, he's calmly assessing the situation and spotting the chinks in the enemy's armor. Interestingly, it's never explained why he is that way — his sister is mostly normal, and if anything a tad too perky for a trained soldier, so it's presumably not a genetic trait.

Multiple characters in the 1632 series — notably among the uptimers Mike Stearns and Jeff Higgins. Taking examples from the first book alone:
When Mike Stearns realizes that there are soldiers coming to attack the Abrabanel's carriage, he intentionally stands out in the open with a semiautomatic pistol to draw their fire away from the carriage — and doesn't stop firing even when one bullet rips through his sleeve.
When Jeff Higgins is defending the students in the cafeteria from a charging band of (dismounted) Croat cavalrymen, he empties his shotgun, reloads, empties it again, and — not having time to reload a second time — butt-strokes another before finally being struck down by a saber-blow.

Babylon 5: Mr. Morden. Gotta hand it to him; not even being arrested, threatened by most of the cast or coming face-to-face with Ambassador Kosh seems to unnerve him. The fact that two equally advanced aliens constantly watch over him may have something to do with that — when Londo kills/chases them off, he finally cracks.
When Vir is faced with a giant monster (that he didn't know was a hologram) he just kept repeating that his boss wants an audience until the technomage responsible for the giant monster gave up on trying to scare him away.

The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye: It takes a lot to faze Ratchet. He's not incapable of showing fear or distress, but he's been held hostage and tortured by experts, so the small stuff doesn't really impact him until someone dies, and even then, while he's not happy, he's still clear-headed enough to convert the corpse into a weapon.
