* ''Manga/{{Kurokami}}'': While [[MartialPacifist Yakumo]] is perfectly capable of curbstomping Tribal Ends, if at all possible, he'd much rather cut and run. Part of stems from the fact that he isn't as powerful as most other Tera Guardians, though it's mainly because he [[DeclarationOfProtection doesn't want to put Riona at risk.]] [[LetsGetDangerous But if anyone tries to harm her....]]

** Of course, Usopp's a funny case in that as long as everything is fine, he's a total MilesGloriosus. But the instant there's the slightest hint of danger, and particularly when he's the only one who can do anything about it, he upgrades (downgrades?) to CowardlyLion. When any significant danger presents itself, Usopp will panic, then proceed to kick ass despite shaking in his boots the whole time. As Sogeking, he tries to ham it up under the facade of a capable badass, but the disguise melts away as soon as real danger comes his way or he gets annoyed. After the time-skip, he gets a bit better, and resembles a real badass- though with some cowardly traits still very much intact.

* Yugi Mutou from ''Anime/YuGiOh'', who is timid and sensitive, conflict-averse, would rather turn the other cheek than escalate the situation whenever someone is a jerk to him, and believes himself to be weak and cowardly, despite showing astounding courage and grit from his very first appearance (standing up to a bully twice his size to protect Jounouchi and Honda) and growing progressively more confident over time, finally truly realizing his own strength at the end of the series.
