* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': This is Yuri Katsuki's FatalFlaw. He's genuinely a really good skater -- the top male skater in Japan, even -- but he suffers terribly from stage fright and consequently tends to do much worse than usual at competitions. One of the main arcs of the anime is about teaching him to have confidence in himself as a skater, but Episode 7 proves that even Victor's encouragement or his recent successes can't cure anxiety completely.

* Valt from ''Anime/BeybladeBurst'' has stage fright. It's especially bad since, as a beyblader, he is very often on stage.



* In ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' stage fright is Jerrica's reason for creating the "Jem" persona. She can't sing in front of people besides her family members, but as Jem she's a flamboyant and popular pop star.

* Miko Iino from ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'' suffers from crippling stage fright, which is cited as the reason why she's never managed to win a student council election. [[spoiler:Shirogane pretending to insult her values and putting her focus on him instead of the crowd lets her give her speech properly. She still doesn't win the election (getting just under 50% of the vote compared to the 5% that she'd normally get), but she did earn the respect of her fellow students and basically assured that she'd win the following year.]]

*** "Hurricane Fluttershy" elaborates more on this fear. The episode revolves around Fluttershy having to help out in whipping up a tornado with the other pegasai, but is overcome by fear of her own perceived inadequate flight capabilities. This also only occurs when she's being observed by other ponies; she goes off to train with her animal friends and is fine when they are watching, but as soon as they don UncannyValley pony masks, Fluttershy falters.
*** It happens ''again'' in "Filli Vanilli", where Fluttershy is afraid of singing publicly, and as a result hides behind a curtain while another pony lip syncs to her voice. To her credit, [[ItMakesSenseInContext she had a deep bass singing voice at the time]]. When she accidentally knocks the curtain down and outs herself as the real singer, she has a nervous breakdown.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'':
** This was the original reason why WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption kept failing to get his boating licence]]. The first couple episodes it was shown, it was stress that made Spongebob freak out and crash into everything. Then it became a case of DependingOnTheWriter, where his driving skills would vary according to [[RuleOfFunny how the scene could best be formatted]], and when he drove well, there'd be a decent justification for his confidence boost. Then {{Flanderization}} and SeasonalRot hit, and the reason was completely forgotten, and that Spongebob would just [[DiabolusExMachina inexplicably]] turn into a [[LaughingMad crazy]], [[DrivesLikeCrazy senseless]] PersonOfMassDestruction behind a wheel, no matter the situation.
** Another episode has [=SpongeBob=] suddenly develop a fear of public speaking when he has to give an oral report in boating school.
