* Daichi in ''DevilSurvivor2'' is always scared of the next demon attack and complains that the others are much more calm than him, but he'll always volunteer to fight and will drive a truck right onto a killer divine being to save his comrades.

** Even in fan games, this is one of Luigi's traits. During a BonusBoss with the Headless Horseman in ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'', after Kyuu's TakingTheBullet moment, he responds with a lighting attack that outright cripples the boss and makes the fight far easier.



* Dirk the Daring of ''DragonsLair'' usually attempts to put on a brave face when battling the disturbing and creepy creatures he has to face when saving Princess Daphne, but it's obvious that he's a freaking nervous wreck the entire time.

* Satoshi Mochida of ''CorpseParty'' ''hates'' scary stories. But once he finds himself ''in'' one, he actually handles himself pretty well.

* The Centaur in ''VideoGame/GloryOfHeracles II''. When you meet him, he's being picked on by a bunch of kids, and joins you after you prove your bravery to him. One of his battle quotes is even crying out that he's scared.

* Khalid in BaldursGate. He's the easily unnerved HenpeckedHusband of Jaheira, who is usually the first to have a morale failure and run in a battle (even though he has some of the highest HP) and can hardly form a [[PorkyPigPronunciation sentence without stammering]]. One of his trademark phrases being ''"If at first I don't succeed the wife won't let me forget..."'' , but level him up enough and he makes for a pretty decent tank. And you ''don't'' want to have to deal with him while he's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Dire Charmed]].

* Luigi in ''Videogame/SuperMarioBros'', though this is better exemplified in the spin-off games ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' and [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon its sequel]]; he's clearly terrified half the time in both games due to his fear of [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes ghosts]], but manages to save his brother [[TheHero Mario]] in the first game and the ''entire time-space continuum'' in the second.
** Koops in the second ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' game, but got better after defeating the Koopa-munching Hooktail.

* Sparx from TheLegendOfSpyro fits this trope nicely. He often voices his displeasure with the dangers they must constantly face, but he always sticks with [[AllLovingHero Spyro.]] When he is a victim of ShooOutTheClowns at the end of the series, he legitimately fights it, even though he knows he has no chance of surviving.

* The Grunts from ''{{Halo}}''. They are tiny, weak, and treated like cannon fodder by tyrants who are larger and stronger and far more numerous than the human supersoldiers. On top of that, they breathe methane instead of oxygen; this means they are constantly fighting in poisonous environments and relying on breathers that can be ripped out of their mouths. The methane tanks they are forced to carry on their backs for survival are also extremely prone to explode when shot, thus they are also carrying their own death on their backs. These guys have every reason to be terrified, and yet many of them attempt suicidal attacks of bravery to great effect.

* ''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 enemies that posture in a frightening manner.
* Captain Linebeck in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass''.

* In Medieval 2 and Rome TotalWar, generals will often bring up that there is no shame in feeling fear before a battle, but it is letting fear rule you which is cowardly.

* Varric in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' seems to believe he's a coward. He mentions in a conversation with the Inquisitor that it took him [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII three years just to work up the nerve to confront his brother, Bartand, for abandoning him to die, and even then he needed his friend, Hawke, to convince him to do it]]. He then wonders if he'd be running from the current crisis if Cassandra hadn't literally dragged him into it in the first place. As the Inquisitor can tell him though, there's nothing keeping him from leaving anymore, and he's still staying and fighting all the same.
