* France's military might have [[MemeticMutation the nasty reputation]] of being cowards and wimps, but their military is ranked ''[[http://www.globalfirepower.com/countries-listing.asp sixth]]'' on GFP's list of military strength. France actually has a fairly aggressive military policy and is more than willing to intervene in other countries (usually those with former French connections), it's just that the French government has a got it alone attitude that doesn't always see eye to eye with the Americans when it comes to foreign policy. It's notable that, despite the French surrender, Germany never actually conquered the entirety of France and a significant amount of allied warpower and success in nazi-occupied France was due largely to ''civilian'' rebellions. Despite accusations towards the French, they do ''not'' play around when their freedom is taken.

* The Disney adaptations of [[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]] portray Piglet as this, there are several times he will lose it if he believes [[BerserkButton his friends are in danger]].

* The Disney adaptations of [[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]] portray Piglet as this, there are several times he will lose it if he believes [[BerserkButton his friends are in danger]]. In their defence, his friends rarely ridicule him outright for his timidness, [[InnocentlyInsensitive but they tend to accept it as his usual approach]]. [[LovableCoward To just about everything]].

** Three received Medals of Honor for actions that sound nigh impossible. In World War II, Desmond Doss personally lowered scores of wounded men down a rope litter off a cliff while still exposed to fire. He was later wounded, treated his own wounds rather than call for help, waited for others to carry him off, then got off the litter so another soldier with worse injuries could get on it. He was injured again, treated his own injury again, and crawled to an aid station. The other two served in Vietnam and died tending to the wounded while under direct fire. They are also the only conscientious objectors honored with a Medal of Honor.

* {{Disney/Bambi}} is conveyed as such in the Disney midquel. He spends the film being intimidated by bully fawn Ronno. When he [[BewareTheNiceOnes finally snaps and tussles with Ronno]], Mena gets caught in a trap and begs the two to save themselves. Ronno runs away screaming for his "Mommy!", while Bambi skilfully risks life and limb to lure the approaching hunting dogs away from Mena.
