* Yarne from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is cowardly to the core. He has a good reason, however, being the last of his kind until he travels back in time and meets his mother. Despite this, however, he has a great growth rate, and depending on his father, he'll either hit hard, take a lot of damage, or be faster than Pegasus riders. His supports with other characters also have him grow braver and more sure of himself

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/MegaMan'' has Astro Man from ''8'', a shy and easily startled wuss ("How'd you find me? I'm so embarrassed!") who nonetheless has the ability to drop flaming meteors on Mega Man. Fans find him cute (sometimes even ''{{moe}}'') because of his honesty about his timidness and his goofy, rather cartoony appearance. It doesn't hurt that he actually goes "Owie!" when he takes a hit.

* While not always shown to be cowards in the games, [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Donald]] and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} are cowards in contrast to [[KidHero Sora]] throughout the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' series. One noticeable moment is when they were searching for [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades]] in the [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Underworld]] in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''; only Sora shows no fear.

** When they visit Halloweentown again the thing that scares Goofy and Donald the most is the NightmareRetardant Christmas attire.
*** Another example of Donald's cowardice is in the [[{{Manga/KingdomHearts}} manga adaptation]], when he accidently grabs onto a Magnum Loader while playing on a Light Cycle, causing it to speed all over the junkyard while refusing to let go, resulting in Sora attacking it head on to save his friend. However, this results in him and Goofy coming close to a HeroicBSOD because [[spoiler: the Magnum Loader crashed into Tron during the incident, causing him to drop a crucial piece of data needed to get the trio out of the computer that's imprisoned them]]; Sora snaps them out of it.
* Murray is this in ''VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus''. Starting in ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'', he [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] and becomes "The Murray", showing no signs of cowardness at all.
* We've got the Galactic Rangers in the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series, before they [[spoiler: TookALevelInBadass on Mylon]]. And in ''VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked'', there's Green, one of the two robots who fights alongside Ratchet during his time in [=DreadZone=].
** Which is to say nothing of Captain Qwark, especially how he [[spoiler:faked his own death in the third game]].

** The only time where Sora ever dips into this trope was in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'', when he tries franticly to swim away from [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Monstro]], as the evil whale is about to sneeze.

* Giving a Sim in ''VideoGame/TheSimsMedieval'' the "Cowardly" trait essentially turns them into this. They'll be AfraidOfTheDark and a bit of a nervous nelly who talks about their fears to anyone who'll listen, but they don't necessarily screw other Sims over like a DirtyCoward would (except at times when CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption for the ''player''), and they're actually not that ineffective on quests. Even if they're ''knights''.
