Added DiffLines:

* Tails in ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', particularly around the Dreamcast era. Whereas Sonic is self-assured, confident, and a bit on the cocky, egotistical side, Tails is more restrained and uncertain whether or not he should defer to Sonic's heroism to solve a problem. He usually finds the strength and willpower to face the challenge alone but he frequently has to talk himself into the heroics whereas Sonic jumps in feet first with no second thoughts.

* Simon from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' started this way in a similar vein to Shinji, where he was constantly plagued by self-doubt and weakness with a major part of his relationship with [[HotBlooded Ka]][[LeeoryJenkins mi]][[RousingSpeech na]] being that the latter constantly tried to have Simon grow beyond it. He overcame this in episode 11, being one of the series' most iconic moments.

* Gumball from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is unathletic, not the sharpest tool in the shed, and lacks maturity, yet he's also bitterly self aware, snarky and GenreSavvy, all traits that make him as likely to cope with the WorldOfWeirdness he inhabits as likely he is to get in over his head.

* The eponymous main character of ''Manga/GoodnightPunpun'' fits this to a tee; there's nothing particularly exceptional or admirable about him. He's a good person at heart, but is meek, withdrawn, depressed, and bad with people. The story is about his growing disillusionment with life and how this turns him into a progressively worse person.

** Madoka spends most of the story struggling to cope with the horrifying things that happen to her friends, while being too scared to actually do much of anything (to the point of being TheScrappy to a lot of people). But she slowly overcomes her fears, and eventually summons the courage to [[spoiler:become a magical girl in order to fix most of the tragedy]].
** Sayaka is probably the "strongest" example, as evidenced by the fact that [[AmericansHateTingle she's hated by U.S. fans almost as much as Shinji]]. She's determined to be a hero, but she's barely decent at fighting, extremely angsty and emotional, and mostly unable to gain the attention of her love interest ([[LesYay well, the male one, anyway]]). She eventually breaks down completely and [[spoiler:becomes a witch]].

* Vakama from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Legends of Metru Nui'' fits this to a T, though elements of it can also be seen in the books and comics of the first third of the ''Adventures'' saga. Of all the Toa Metru, he's the one most wracked by doubt that he can be a Toa hero, much less the leader of a group of headstrong characters such as themselves, at least in part because of how [[TheMentor Toa Lhikan]] was captured by the Dark Hunters saving him. He struggles to come into his own mastering his powers and even when he does take charge, it's usually only in the heat of the moment and he's quick to pass off authority again, and he [[ItsAllMyFault blames himself the hardest when Lhikan dies and Metru Nui falls into ruin]]. By the second half of the ''Adventures'' saga and shown in detail during ''Web of Shadows'', he tries to compensate by becoming overly [[LeeroyJenkins aggressive and reckless in leading the team]], which gets them mutated into BeastMen and gets [[WhatTheHellHero him a whole lot of (not entirely undeserved) crap]], and the stress of all of this failure coupled with learning he and his team might not have truly been destined to become Toa in the first place drive him full-on into [[FaceHeelTurn temporary villainy]]. It's only near the end does he finally find a balance.
