* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' is this in spades. Yes, he is the best fighter in the province, having fought against people with supernatural abilities, robots or whatever you may throw at him, all while being a somewhat confident, cheerful and amicable person. Whenever Stephen Stills [[OnceAnEpisode has a nervous breakdown]] or Kim begins acting surlier than usual, Scott is there to keep the band together as TheHeart of the group. But put it on talking of his past, or about relationships, or even the future, and his awkwardness gets over the mark, with stutters, avoiding themes and acting like a shy kid. He's maturing out of this, of course. [[spoiler: He's a bit of an UnreliableNarrator, but its not difficult to see when he is hiding details or such..]]

* Marv from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' is a [[AntiHero Socially Awkward Anti-Hero]]. Ignoring his [[SociopathicHero violent tendencies]], even in his more civilized moods, he is socially inept, particularly when it comes to women -- and being ugly as sin didn't really help his case either. This is why he [[AManIsNotAVirgin was a virgin until late in life.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Malcolm Reed from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' is an expert at combat, from hand-to-hand to ship-to-ship, can face any sort of danger with a StiffUpperLip, and will sacrifice himself for his ship and crewmates if necessary. Off-duty, however, he can't make small talk with Captain Archer--or, for that matter, anybody except [[HeterosexualLifePartners Trip]]--and all of his attempts at romance have failed because of his inability to open up to others.

* David from ''Literature/TheReckonersTrilogy'' tends to fall into this. He was planning to buy a gun and shoot Steelheart at ''ten years old'', but has trouble making simple conversation at a party. It's sort of justified, though, considering he lived in a weapons factory since he was eight and spent a lot of time studying for school and avenging his father.

* Constable Odo from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is an expert at dealing with smugglers, killers, and any other criminals on the station. Put him in a room with the highly flirtatious Lwaxana Troi, on the other hand...

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Emilio isn't the greatest with people thanks to a long RevengeBeforeReason emo phase and his general gloomy aura. [[GenkiGuy Shun]] and [[PluckyGirl Alicia]] laugh over how embarrassed he seems when the Royal Guard hoist him on their shoulders and congratulate him after seeing him in battle for the first time.

* WesternAnimation/KimPossible. Taking down supervillains comes easy for her. Asking the boy she has a crush on to the school dance is another issue entirely, although she is a popular student and cheerleader. Her sidekick [[ButtMonkey Ron]], however, is neither, but still has the problem of social awkwardness.

* On a similar note, the main trio in ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''- [[TheDitz Clarence]], [[NervousWreck Jeff]], and [[MotorMouth Sumo]], want to be exactly like the other kids, but their dysfunctional relationship often makes it difficult.
