* ''Anime/MacrossDelta'': Heinz Windemere is a fence-sitting type. [[PlanetaryNation Windemere]] has started a war in the name of galactic domination; and since he is the king, Heinz cannot afford second thoughts but doesn’t entirely agree with the idea of aggressive expansion. Unfortunately, because he is more useful as a [[CastFromLifespan Wind Singer]] than as an authority figure, he has to defer to [[EvilChancellor Roid]] for the actual ruling of Windemere. [[spoiler:In the later episodes, he makes his choice and [[SlowlySlippingIntoEvil boy, is it a wrong one.]]]]

* Chidi from ''Series/TheGoodPlace'', mainly of the "can't see the forest for the trees" variety. Flashbacks show that he is unable to make even the simplest decisions, from picking teams for soccer to ordering at a restaurant. It's his FatalFlaw, [[spoiler:literally, as it turns out; he died when he was hit by an air conditioner while deciding what to do.]]

It's his FatalFlaw, [[spoiler:literally, as it turns out; he died when he was hit by an air conditioner while deciding what to do. The season finale also reveals that this is why he's in the Bad Place as his constant inability to make any decisions drove everyone around him miserable.]]

* This is one interpretation of Shakespeare's ''{{Hamlet}}''. He's told right at the start of the play that his uncle had killed his father and Hamlet should avenge him. "Now might I do it pat," he says, but never does until it's too late, and gets nearly everyone else killed in the process. LaurenceOlivier even prefaces his film version by saying "This is the tragedy of a man who could not make up his mind."

* The climax of ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' pivots on the dithering of James Wilson, Pennsylvania's third delegate who is caught between independence man Ben Franklin and reconciliation man John Dickinson--Wilson prefers established precedence over the risk of new ideas. Usually, Wilson is just Dickinson's YesMan, but Franklin calls for a poll of individual delegates to leave Wilson on his own. Realizing he can be ''the'' man to sink independence or just another signature on the Declaration, Wilson chooses the latter. (This is DatedHistory--at the time, the writers couldn't find any writings to explain Wilson's abrupt switch. Now it's known that Wilson was an independence man himself who was waiting for information from his constituents to make sure they wanted it too.)
