* [[MeaningfulName Fear]] from ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' definitely qualifies. It's his job to be fearful of the world as he's the "voice in the head" that keeps one safe from dangerous situations.

Generally, what differs the Lovable Coward from his far more vicious cousin is [[AtLeastIAdmitIt honesty]]. While the Dirty Coward acts intimidating and cruel when in control of the situation, only revealing his true yellow streak when he realizes the possibility of being injured or killed, the Lovable Coward admits up front he's not the person you want watching your back in a dangerous situation, and tries to avoid being forced into a situation where others have to suffer for his lack of valor. If his friends get set on going to the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace Doomed Valley of the Eternal Torment]], he advocates that maybe [[OnlySaneMan it's a good plan to avoid anywhere in the same country from then on]] and, if critical that he goes, will actually tag along (heavily armored, and grumbling). If he becomes renowned for his "heroism", the pride never goes to his head, and even if he only [[FakeUltimateHero admits it internally]], he's the first one to openly sing the praises of the actual heroes and may even grow [[HeroicSelfDeprecation depressed]] they're not the ones enjoying his fame. Ultimately, the Lovable Coward is never a [[TheBully bully]]; whereas the Dirty Coward gleefully takes any opportunity to flaunt and abuse any security he has, the Lovable Coward generally takes the opportunity that safety to breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy the sensation of death being something very, very far away.

* Veda Scott, whom the audience immediately fell in love with on her Sparkle debut but was out of her depth on Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} proper, cowering away from confrontations with bigger meaner wrestlers like Melanie Cruise and Sweet Saraya. Scott remained enthusiastic despite apprehension towards wrestling and a seven volume losing streak, which allowed her to retain a connection to a sympathetic audience.

[[folder:Comics]] * Volstagg the Voluminous, of MarvelComics' trio "The Warriors Three", is a cowardly, tremendously fat braggart with a bizarre amount of success in battle, partly due to his own lies. Then one day he was the only one mobile when an army threatened Midgard. He managed to pull together a defense and TookALevelInBadass. Judging by his name, he is probably based on Falstaff. At least this was true in Volstagg's original appearances. In more recent years, he's a BoisterousBruiser, but keeps the flair for outrageous bragging. ** Averted in the movie where, while we don't see much of him in combat what we do see he's kicking ass as much as Fandral and Hogun * The Dog of ''FootrotFlats'' talks himself up (metaphorically) but tends to run away very fast from any hostile dog ([[CatsAreMean and some cats]]) bigger than him. Although he's still a competent sheepdog. * Sir Rodney from ''TheWizardOfId'' gets most of his humor out of being a complete chicken. * Gus from ''Minimonsters'', a cute, shy and unfortunate ghost. He sometimes can be brave, though.
