* "Randy's Dandy Lions" is a children's book written by Bill Peet that features a troop of performing lions that suffer from what the book refers to as 'cage fright.' This results in the firing of their trainer and the hiring of a new one. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck This does not end well.]]

* Meena in ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'' has a tremendous singing ability when she's alone but gets shy in front of people, even her own family. When she tries to audition for the singing competition, she freezes up and totally blows it. [[spoiler: In the finale, she finally overcomes it and literally brings down the house.]]

* The Smoke Knight Malek from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is generally quite good at his job but starts having trouble when working with someone since he's used to working alone and it makes him nervous which [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160509 leads to potentially fatal mistakes:]]
-->'''Varpa:''' Are you ''trying'' to kill us?!\\
'''Malek:''' I'm used to working ''alone!'' I get ''nervous'' when someone's ''watching!''

* This was the original reason why SpongeBob from ''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.

* 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.]]

* On the eve of a big presentation ''ComicStrip/Dilbert'' gets some dubiously-helpful advice from Dogbert, who points out that fear of public speaking trumps fear of death in most people, so "technically, if you kill a guy who's scheduled to speak, you're doing him a favor." He then casually asks Dilbert when he plans on getting some sleep...

** At least one champion from ''The $100,000 Name That Tune'' recounted his experiences from the $100,000 tournament in Jefferson Graham's "The Game Show Book"; in an elimination round, he knew the titles to three songs ("Yesterday," "America" (from ''Theatre/WestSideStory'') and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree") but was either unable to answer before being buzzed or press his lock-out buzzer fast enough, and he owed his lack of success to extreme nerves (particularly since he knew a large prize was up for grabs). At least one other book - pitching advice to prospective game show contestants - included its author's own disastrous experience on the Jim Perry version of ''CardSharks''; she wrote that, despite being relaxed beforehand, she became completely unnerved when told she was going on air to play the game, and those nerves - plus a lack of support from others in the contestant pool, whom she had thought were her friends - contributed to a pair of quick losses to a dominant champion.
