* In what is perhaps the [[BaseBreaker most controversial scene]] in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', Samus Aran, the badass bounty hunter who leaves a trail of destroyed ''planets'' in her wake, is reduced to a terrified little girl at the sight of her old nemesis, Ridley. Fortunately, she gets over it in time to deliver yet another beatdown.

* In one issue of ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'', Kyle Rayner relates how Guy Gardner (a Comicbook/GreenLantern notable for not just being able to "overcome great fear", but being honest-to-God ''fearless'') used to tell funny stories about some of the truly ridiculous villains Hal Jordan used to fight. But, Rayner notes, "Guy never told any funny stories about Sinestro", the one villain who ever scared the crap out of Gardner.

* A Creator/DCComics CrisisCrossover once noted that things had gotten really ''really'' bad by having one of the characters note that even ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker had stopped laughing.''

** The one who did it more successfully, was SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, during his brief stint as ComicBook/EmperorJoker. Killing even the toughest Badass over and over while forcing him to see the atrocities only the Joker's mind could come up with in a reality made of bubblegum would break anyone, though.

** Yang Xiao Long, the character on team RWBY who enjoys [[BloodKnight fighting the most]] and specifically became a huntress [[InHarmsWay for the thrill of it]] goes through a major series of breaking moments from the second half of the season onwards. Firstly in "Fall" she [[spoiler: is tricked by [[MasterOfIllusion Emerald]] into attacking Mercury and (seemingly) break his leg]]. Since no one else saw what she did the world assumes that [[spoiler: she attacked an innocent man out of spite]] and she's promptly suspended from the Vytal Festival with her reputation in taters. She spends the next several episodes in the background before trying to [[spoiler: protect Blake from Adam during the Battle for Beacon]] before the former defeats her in a SingleStrokeBattle [[spoiler: [[AnArmAndALeg which promptly cuts off her right arm.]] By the end of the volume, she wants nothing more than to just lie in bed, refusing to do anything at all.]]
** Pyrrha Nikos, TheAce of Beacon Academy and the student that is considered to be the most {{Badass}} student in said academy goes through a woozy from "Fall" onwards. In said episode she finds out about the existence of the Four Maidens, PhysicalGoddess imbued with power and finds out that one of them, Amber, was attacked and [[spoiler: had half of her powers drained. Realising that the BigBad is still out their and will no doubt try to gain the rest of Ambers powers Ozpin asks Pyrrha to absorb the remainder of said powers]] with the risk that the process may [[LossOfIdentity change who she is]]. The stress of knowing said secret, the risk she could loss herself, and being placed on a higher pedestal then she usually is [[BrokenAce breaks her]] and she actually bursts into tears when the weight of what she knows becomes to much. Things only get worse during her match with Penny in the Tournanment where she is [[spoiler: manipulated by Emerald into [[AccidentalMurder murdering her]]]] in front of the whole world. The shock of what she did causes her to HeroicBSOD to the point she doesn't even react when a Nevermore attacks her. Finally [[spoiler: when she finally decides to become the Fall Maiden to save the world [[YankTheDogsChain Cinder prombtly kills Amber]] thus absorbing the remaining power and making Pyrrha's suffering pointless]].

* Guts of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' isn't immune to this. Nosferatu Zodd did this by simply transforming into his Apostle form. When they meet again after the Eclipse, Guts is better prepared for it since he's fought many Apostles up to that point.

** And of course, there's the Eclipse, during which [[spoiler:Griffith finally shows his true colors, starts a demonic invasion and rapes Casca while forcing Guts to watch, and would have killed them both if not for the Skull Knight's intervention.]] It turns Casca into a helpless WomanChild while Guts take about fifty levels in badass... and quite a few in jerkass.

* Marv in ''SinCity'' only seems to be afraid of the woods. This makes sense considering [[HarmfulToMinors he was tied up to a tree as a child and left overnight]].
