Fear Masking

Jinbe's Fear Mask One Piece.gif

What is "courage"? "Courage" is knowing fear and making that fear your own!Will A. Zeppeli (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part I: Phantom Blood)

How are you doing this? You've ingested enough toxins to drive ten men insane! What are you?!Scarecrow (Arkham Series)

Courage isn't the absence of fear, but the presence of fear and the will to keep on going.Jamal Walker (Black Knight)

There’s no way a man who intends to join the crew of the future Pirate King will cower before a mere Yonkō!Jinbei to Charlotte Linlin/Big Mom (One Piece)

I've been running and running to get away from those hideous people for 2 years. Compared to them, this monster is nothing. It looks rather cute to me.Sanji (One Piece) on the Kraken.

Fear is the enemy of will. Will is what makes you take action; fear is what stops you, and makes you weak. You must ignore your fear. When you're afraid, you can't act - you can't act, you can't defend - you can't defend, you die!Thaal Sinestro (Green Lantern)

The power to draw upon superhuman reserves of courage. Sub-power of Fear Manipulation and Fearlessness.
