** Lon'qu is the most notable example. It's initially PlayedForLaughs, but several of his supports open up his DarkAndTroubledPast, making it a lot less funny: it's a rare case of ''trauma'' actually factoring into his fear. [[spoiler:His childhood sweetheart ''and'' OnlyFriend, Ke'ri, was murdered in front of him [[HeroicSacrifice in an attempt to protect him]], and his failure to protect her stemmed the fear that any woman he'd get close to would eventually be killed.]] The result of this is him acting cold towards just about everyone, and every time he interacts with a female character, he [[SuddenlyShouting tends to shout at random.]] His prospective love interests have to work ''very'' had to get to speak to him in normal terms, and if playing as a female [[PlayerCharacter Avatar]], he has [[DevelopersForesight an extremely low chance of greeting you in the Barracks unless you marry him]].

* [[NationsAsPeople Germany]] from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is said to be this, but he talks to young girls and Hungary just fine.

* ''Manga/CityHunter'': Umibozu. Despite being a hulking brute towering over all the other characters, he becomes incredibly awkward around women and, if one shows him interest, High-Pressure Emotion-time it is. Made even worse that he mostly attracts pretty women.

* [[ClarkKenting Clark Kent]] is this all day. Not {{Superman}}, though. [[DependingOnTheWriter Usually.]]
* [[Franchise/{{Spider-man}} Peter Parker]] has been [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] into this over the years; in the early days, his romantic problems stemmed from the social hazards of [[SecretIdentity keeping a secret identity]], with a generous helping of {{Tsundere}} behavior from his love interests thrown into the mix during [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeofComicBooks the Silver Age]].

* From ''VideoGame/BustAGroove'' we get Hiro, a 20-something disco dancing narcissistic who ''loves'' the ladies...but cannot talk to one without becoming a flustered mess. To make matters unfortunate, [[ChickMagnet they love him back]].

* Shang from ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' can talk to Mulan, even about emotional things--''[[SweetPollyOliver when she's disguised as a man]]''. When she's unmasked, however, he quickly develops a crush on her ([[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation although quite a lot of fans think]] [[SweetOnPollyOliver he already had a subconscious crush on her from the beginning]]) and turns into a giant {{Adorkable}} stuttering mess when she's around.

* ''Film/AgentCodyBanks'': Cody Banks, in Banks himself has this problem and it makes his first mission all the ''Film/AgentCodyBanks'' movies, harder; he is like this.supposed to covertly bodyguard the daughter of a scientist by posing as her friend.



* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Rincewind]] is mentioned to be a rarity among wizards, in that he can talk to a woman without needing a cold shower and a lie-down after. However, if the subject turns to sex, he's completely out of his depth (wizards as a whole aren't supposed to marry or rather have sex, as this increases the chances of a [[PhysicalGod sourcerer]] being born).

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Basilard has a history flubbing his attempts at charming women, which is especially distressing for him considering that his personal dream is for his first born child to inherit his AncestralWeapon. In ''Literature/LoomingShadow'', he needed his teenaged novice to explain how he upset his latest ladylove.



* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Kendra the Vampire Slayer had a hard time talking to men who weren't her Watcher or a vampire, due in part to being brought up by her Watcher to focus single-mindedly on slaying.
** Oh, she wasn't just bad at talking to men. She was ''forbidden from speaking with them'' by her Watcher.

* After awkwardly asking Princess Mithian out on a date in ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', Arthur mutters to himself "I've never been much good at this." Something of an InformedAttribute (or ''mis''attribute) considering he's always seemed at ease around Guinevere -- the assumption is that she was the exception to the largely off-screen rule.

* Charlie Brown from ''{{Peanuts}}'' may be one of the biggest examples, at least when it comes to girls he actually likes (as opposed to ones like Lucy and Sally, who are mean to him). For four whole decades, he tried to bring himself to introduce himself to the Little Red Haired Girl, but always chickened out. He was a little braver late in the strip's run when he met Peggy Jean, but he still was shy and nervous around her, and nothing serious ever developed. (Even if Charles Shultz had not passed away, he said he never planned to change the strip so dramatically as to actually change Charlie Brown's character, preferring to keep him [[{{Everyman}} the way he was.)]]
