* Aloth from ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' and especially ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternityIIDeadfire''. No matter how many impressive things he's part of -- facing down dragons, cleaning out undead-infested ruins, [[spoiler:facing down the gods themselves]] at the end of the first game, and [[spoiler:either working to dismantle or take over an AncientConspiracy by his own wits and effort]] between the first and second games -- he never stops being a tetchy NervousWreck in conversations. Doesn't mean he's any less of a powerful wizard in the first game, and possibly a frontline MagicKnight in the second.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'': The Felyne Whitescruff from Cheeko Sands. The first time you meet him, he keeps whining about he's an easily frightened, good-for-nothing loser. After you take down Akantor, [[spoiler:the same one who defeated his original master and made him so jittery in the first place]], he asks to join you as a Palico. It gets better: [[spoiler:it turns out he's an aggressive-type Palico who prioritises fighting large wyverns, with two special abilities, one that increases his damage and health massively if you are KO'd and another that tantamounts to him ''jumping on the wyvern's face and clawing away at its eyes'', giving you an opening.]] Not bad, little buddy.

* [[IdiotBall Wheat]][[RobotBuddy ley]] from ''Videogame/Portal2''. He's scared of a ''lot'' of things (heights, birds, [[BigBad [=GLaDOS=]]], etc.) and startles ''very'' easily. However, he still sneaks you out right under [=GLaDOS=]'s nose, uses his flashlight despite believing [[BlatantLies he'd die]] if he did, detaches himself from his managment rail despite being afraid of heights ''and'' being told that this [[RunningGag would also kill him]], and has the nerve to ''talk back to [=GLaDOS=]'' in a situation where [[PlayerCharacter Chell]] can't help him. A lot of this likely stems from him being programmed to have ''bad'' ideas, and sacrificing yourself to use a flashlight and sounding off to [[TheDreaded GLaDOS]] are brave but ''very'' boneheaded moves.

** Both Koops and Flavio in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', but he ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. The former got better after defeating the Koopa-munching Hooktail.Hooktail, and the latter gets one moment of badass when he confronts the undead pirate Cortez and convinces him to lend them his ship. Flavio says it the best when he spells out his plan and the others call him insane:
---> '''Flavio:''' I may be a coward and a cad, but I still lead you! I have a duty to protect you!

* ''VideoGame/TheMaw'', a game on the XboxLiveArcade. The title character is a blob who can eat just about anything and keeps getting bigger until it eats the entire planet, but it has a tendency to flee screaming from bigger enemies that posture in a frightening manner.

Phantom]]. Also a MilesGloriosus at times.times.
** Yunobo in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. His introductory cutscene shows him freaking out when he mistakes Link, a guy barely a quarter of his size, for a monster. He'll also crouch down and [[BarrierWarrior use Daruk's Protection]] whenever he encounters ''actual'' monsters. But he nevertheless braves monster-infested areas and lets himself be shot out of cannons when need be, whether to retrieve medicine for the Goron elder or to help Link board Divine Beast Vah Rudania.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'': Sakutaro is nervous by nature, to the point of being afraid to go outside unless he's quickly able to retreat into Maria's pocket, but when things get serious, he won't back down from protecting her.
