** A more example is in Crona, Medusa's "child." Despite that fact that zhe is constantly afraid of pretty much...everything, zhe will not hesitate to take on bigger scarier enemies if it means helping hir friends. Given how zhe was made by Crona to try and recreate the Kishin, this makes hir a foil to Asura. [[spoiler: Especially in the manga, where Crona ends up back as a Heel and absorbs Asura before Maka knocks sense back into hir and Crona becomes a BarrierMaiden to seal off Asura.]]

* Sir Penwood and Seras Victoria in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''.

to:

* Sir Penwood is the prime example in 'Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. Part of the Round Table, he is well-aware that he is a nervous man not suited for battle and war and knwos the only reason he got his position was through inheritance, yet he stands by to do his duty [[spoiler: all the way to the bitter end, where he blew himself and his base up, taking a massive amount of Nazi vampires with him and inspiring his subordinates to stand by him during London's invasion.]] It's little wonder why Integra and the other Round Table members have great respect for him as well.
**
Seras Victoria in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''.herself is this. Serving as an AudienceSurrogate for entering the mad world of being a vamprie, she was initially a normal police girl, though with a troubled past. As she overcomes her truamas, she outgrows this to become a full Badass.



* Asura from ''Manga/SoulEater''. Despite being fear and insanity incarnate, he rose to be one of the world's most dangerous beings, quite possibly surpassing the much more level headed Shinigami-sama himself.
** Crona is another example that should be pointed out. Despite that fact that s/he is constantly afraid of pretty much...everything, s/he will not hesitate to take on bigger scarier enemies if it means helping his/her friends.

* Asura from ''Manga/SoulEater''. Despite being ''Manga/SoulEater'' could be a {{Deconstruction}} of one. Born with fear and insanity incarnate, he rose to be one in his soul, his fear of the world's most dangerous beings, quite possibly surpassing the much more level headed outside world and possibility drove him to fight alongside Shinigami-sama himself.
and other warriors to make the world a better place. However, these fears overwhelmed him, turning on his comrades and becoming a horrible monster and threat to humanity. Especially since [[spoiler: as a Great Old One and Shinigami's offspring (as in ''Kid's older brother''), he possesses the Madness of Fear, his presnece driving people into insanity through fear.]] To Asura, fear is a motivator, but in the sense he wants to drive everyone insane and or destory all in his path to quelm his fear.

* Usopp, Nami and Chopper in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Nami is partly justified because she lacks the insane superhuman strength and/or Devil Fruit powers a lot of her crewmates have, so she must rely on her brain, wits, and Clima-Tact to survive in battle. As she gets skilled with the Clima Tact (and no longer has a crappy party favor toy), she becomes more courageous. Chopper is fairly young, shy, and sheepish. He freaks out a lot and gets shook up in bad situations. Post time-skip, he's more in control.

** Gohan as well all the way up until ''Anime/DragonBallZ'''s Cell Saga. But admittedly [[JustifiedTrope he was a little kid.]]

* Closer from ''Manga/HydeAndCloser''. Always run from battle, [[BadAss Hyde]] always had to bail out his ass, but ''never'' let his friends in danger, even if that means takes the beating all for himself.

* ''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.
