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.
