Sometimes this is used for comedic effect, with a hero who is AfraidOfNeedles reacting with complete terror to mundane things, sometimes even jumping into his {{Sidekick}}'s arms or ducking behind his LoveInterest like a DistressedDamsel. The FishOutOfWater might hide from otherwise harmless things too (and notice who/what they're hiding behind looks far more threatening). See also PoseOfSupplication.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan's'' Ai Haibara fulfills the DistressedDamsel version of this trope. She can often sense the presence of a member of the Organization close by. When she gets this feeling she will frequenly cling to and hide behind the closest person available. This is most often Conan and Professor Agasa, but have on occasion also been Ran or Mitsuhiko.

* In the second arc of ''Manga/{{Gantz}}'', Kurono is treated like a DirtyCoward for momentarily hiding behind Kishimoto when they first encounter a hostile alien. He objects that it is {{justified}} because she is wearing a [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman super-suit]] that provides some protection from injury, while he is in street clothes and thus defenseless.
