A fragile flower is that one character who always looks like she (or he) is just about ready to cry. In fact, they probably are. Sometimes, they will try to keep their emotions inside, but ultimately fail. One small incident and they are crying. It is possible for anything to cause them to cry, but it is most often a harsh insult directed at them.

* In Zilpha Keatley Snyder's "The Changeling", it is abundantly clear early on that fearful, shy, clumsy Martha Abbott cannot fit in with the rest of her Perfect Suburban Family and ''no way to make them take her seriously''. She's treated almost like a pet (she's even called "Mouse"), and her only defense, indeed her only means of self-expression, is to cry. The author herself admitted later she didn't realize a lot of the subtleties she was creating with this book.

* [[EmotionalBruiser Eugly]] the rabbit from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. She will burst into tears (with OcularGushers) at the slightest insult. Sadly, the rest of the cast don't care, and they're always being mean to her.

There may be a few reasons for a fragile flower's behavior. They might just be super sensitive by nature. There might have been something in their past such as emotional abuse from peers or some other form of BreakTheCutie that caused them to be this way. Most characters who know the fragile flower are careful not to upset them when talking. Other more JerkAss characters will most likely try to make them cry, in which case the fragile flower may eventually force themselves to become desensitized towards insults.

* Tiger I from Panzermadels, especially when it comes to the time when she ran over Erwin. We find out earlier that it's because she "breaks down a lot" which is a design flaw.
