* Xander "I laugh in the face of danger...Then I hide until it goes away" Harris from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' ''talked'' about being a coward, but would go into danger to help his friends despite his fear.

* ''TheLoneGunmen'': Byers is a meek, mild-tempered guy - ''except'' when you ask him to look the other way on an injustice. Then, he suddenly develops enough balls to call out one of the most frightening members of TheConspiracy right to his face.

** Turlough, during the [[Creator/PeterDavison Fifth]] Doctor run is a mix of this between this and LovableCoward. He's only with the Doctor because of circumstances, and runs away from things and hates danger, but when it's needed he mans up and does what's right.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' Quark (who had always been portrayed as pretty much a fast talking coward) had a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when he stood in front of a Klingon who was nearly twice his height in the middle of the Klingon parliament, after the Klingon had challenged him to a duel to the death, and just looked him straight in the eyes and flat out told him that he wasn't going to fight and if [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy the Klingon]] wanted Quark dead just to [[GetItOverWith get on with it]]. This would, of course, deny the Klingon the honor of defeating a foe gloriously in battle (Quark even KNELT), making his "victory" shallow and meaningless. The Klingon went in for the kill anyway, but the Klingon Emperor stepped in, and declared that if the bad guy would really kill an unarmed opponent, then he truly had no honor and he was promptly discommendated and kicked out of the building.

Gowron even compliments Quark on the bravery doing that would have to take.

* Captain Edmund Blackadder of ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth'' always actively tries to shirk dangerous duties, and spends most of the series trying to avoid leaving his trench, but whenever he is thrust into a life-threatening situation (captured, court-martialed, sent on recon missions) he is just as ice-cold as he is sitting back in his safe, warm hidey-hole. Most fans consider him less a coward and more unwilling to die needlessly, and, to be honest, getting out of WorldWarOne is a pretty sympathetic motivation.

* [[{{Adorkable}} Connor]] in ''{{Primeval}}'' thinks of himself as a cowardly geeky, bookworm, but when it comes to it is just as capable of facing down velociraptors and other nightmare-riffic creatures as any of the more traditionally heroic characters.

Added DiffLines:

* Don Dogoier/ Gokai Green from Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger. He hides,trips, falls,and hurts himself by punching his own hand doing a pose. He's also shown to be capable of fending off Mooks with a [[ImprobableWeaponUser broom]], can land a [[WrestlerInAllOfUs hurricanrana]], and has been shown to be strong enough to [[NeckSnap crack the mooks' necks]] on at least two occassions.

* The Second Doctor on ''Series/DoctorWho'', who made a CatchPhrase of "When I say run, run!"

to:

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
**
The Second Doctor on ''Series/DoctorWho'', is the only one who made often shows open fear of villains and monsters when cornered by them. (When other Doctors occasionally do it, it's always a serious OhCrap moment.) His CatchPhrase of is "When I say run, run!"run!". Nevertheless, he's as heroic in his actions as any of the others.
