Added DiffLines:

* Akizuki in ''Manga/BlendS'' is gynophobic, to the point that he even fears female storekeepers. He's barely able to talk to his female coworkers, and some ShipTease moments that happen with [[GamerChick Kaho]] ends up flustering her because of his inexperience with women.

** 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]].

* ''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]].

* 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.

* [[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).
