*** "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.

Added DiffLines:

* Chopin from ''Manga/Classi9'' has a terrible stage fright and fainted more than once while playing in public. He feels better when he's playing with someone, and usually performs duets with Liszt. TruthInTelevision as the real life Chopin gave around 30 public concerts and preferred private and cozy concerts in his home than big concerts.

Added DiffLines:

* In one ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' story, Hornblower goes down in flames when he takes his examination for lieutenant before a board of three captains. They pose him a hypothetical shipboard disaster and he blanks out as they point out all the horrible things that would be happening in the real situation--and then the Spanish send a fire ship into the harbor. Hornblower helps steer it away from the fleet with one of the examiners, who makes a point of telling him afterward what a mercy it was because he was about to fail. (Hornblower's heroism does net him the promotion.)


Added DiffLines:

* The second ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' telefilm is appropriately titled "The Examination for Lieutenant" in the UK and "The Fire Ships" in America. Despite spending all his free time inside of a book (even when commanding a quarantined supply ship) Hornblower, as in the original story, can barely give his ''name'' correctly. It's compounded by the fact that he'd previously an angry exchange with one captain on the board who insisted on taking provisions before the quarantine was up. All interrupted by the fire ship, of course. Hornblower ends that particular episode still as an acting-lieutenant, but the official promotion comes down in the next.

** Sweetie Belle has an instance of this in "The Show Stoppers." Like Fluttershy, she has a good voice but is shy about singing in front of others, prompting her to do props and costumes for their show instead of singing, which goes to the HollywoodToneDeaf Scootaloo. She's clearly gotten past it as of "For Whom the Sweetie Bell Toils," when she writes, directs, and acts in a play.
