** In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'', SelfDemonstrating/{{Bizarro}} and his cousin are biological weapons of mass destruction, but they are quite cowardly. Bizarro wanted to escape from Bizarro World instead of fighting an Eldritch Abomination. Bizarrogirl admits to being terrified of the Godship, yet still does a bang up job fighting it after she grows a spine.

** When he started off, ComicBook/MilesMorales was easily frightened and focused on the negatives, but when needed, he'd go into battle.

* Commander Blanx of the pre-Crisis ''ComicBook/MartianManhunter'' comics is a villainous example along the same lines as Donald Pierce. A DirtyCoward and CombatPragmatist who never fights fair--and indeed, doesn't fight at all if he can get someone else to do the dying for him--he's nevertheless very dangerous when cornered, nearly killing J'onn in one appearance and going toe-to-toe with Superman in another.

* ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' portrayed Tails in this light for a lot of the early issues.
* Donald Pierce is a villainous version in ''Comicbook/XMen''.
* Eric O'Grady in ''Comicbook/TheAvengers''.
* DonaldDuck (who is often MilesGloriosus too), especially in Creator/DonRosa's comics.
* Rex and Pugsy in ''ComicBook/BeastsOfBurden''. Notable that Rex was a MilesGloriosus in the first story, but has gotten better. All of the characters are regularly terrified by the supernatural occurences that surround them, but these two (especially Pugsy) are the ones most likely to be visibly afraid--and yet neither will back down when their friends or their town is in danger

Donald Pierce is a villainous version in ''Comicbook/XMen''.
* Eric O'Grady
''Comicbook/XMen''. He's a bully, and a DirtyCoward, but in ''Comicbook/TheAvengers''.
* DonaldDuck
a fight he's a match for the likes of Wolverine.
** In ''ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'', The Shocker is treated as a coward by his allies due to his unambitious nature and his preference for keeping his head low, even though he happens to be one of the most effective combatants of the team. In his words, he has no problem with others considering him a coward as long as he's able to live another day. Near the end however, events more or less drive him to cut loose, at which point he not only [[spoiler:single-handedly defeats the entire team]] but was also able to [[spoiler:defeat The Punisher with a single blast, though exactly how much of this was embellished by [[UnreliableNarrator Boomerang]]

* ''Franchise/TheDCU'':



** [[ComicBook/{{New52}} The New 52]] version of Power Ring is an enormous wuss that seems fearful of everything. However, he wields a RingOfPower that runs on fear which makes him as powerful as the rest of the Crime Syndicate. At least until he ran into a TRUE master of fear.
** ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'':
*** Kyle Rayner relative to other Green Lanterns. Kyle, unlike all Lanterns who came before him, could actually feel fear and doubted his abilities and heroism frequently. Eventually, his ability to feel fear made him the only lantern capable of spotting the greatest threat to the entire Green Lantern Corps, Parallax.
*** Jessica Cruz never stops being scared of all the things she has to deal with as a Green Lantern, but her ability to overcome her fear is what makes her one.
* In ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' Mordred Hood, one of Robotnik's minions, is a cowardly and overly cautious guy who would rather keep his head down than fight the heroes. He feels that he isn't cut out for fieldwork, but is actually a surprisingly skilled infiltrator and an intelligent manager, with his cautiousness ensuring that he doesn't recklessly run into danger like some of the other Egg Bosses. The problem is that he's also so much of an ExtremeDoormat that no one pays his legitimately good suggestions any mind.
