* Ganryu from the ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series is a rare male example, but it's usually PlayedForLaughs. Examples include when he cries after defeating Jinpachi in Tekken 5, and also is the only male to cry in his lose pose when paired up with Jaycee.

* WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}} is a male example that isn't always PlayedForLaughs. In fact, making [[NiceGuy SpongeBob]] cry is considered a gross act of cruelty, and whoever is responsible for hurting his feelings almost immediately gets [[YouBastard scolded]] by whoever happens to witness it, or just feels [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone guilty]]. It really doesn't take very much to make him cry, either- in one episode, a particularly mean customer yelled at him and threw a pizza box in the face, causing him to flop over on the ground, sob ''deeply'' for a while, and not stop until Squidward cheered him up.

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.

* WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}: The eponymous character and his baby sister are infamous for crying at the drop of a hat. [[http://caillou.wikia.com/wiki/Crying_Clips The wikia even has a list of the amount of times they cried.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* Despite being the oldest and most mature out of her 6 friends, Alice from the ''Anime/BakuganBattleBrawlers'' fills this role to a T.

Added DiffLines:

* [[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.
