** [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hinata_Hyuuga_shrinking_violent_3955.png Hinata Hyuuga]] because of the damage [[ParentalAbandonment her ultra-strict father's]] family did to her self-esteem, as well as her [[FanOfUnderdog huge crush on Naruto]]. When she first saw Naruto after nearly three years she ''fainted'', [[AdaptationExpansion twice in the anime]]. When said guy is in trouble, however, ''she is ready to die for him''. She does [[CharacterDevelopment gradually outgrow her shyness]] in [[TimeSkip Part II]]; she's still quiet and soft-spoken, but she's also much more confident in herself and her abilities.

** Fate was incredibly shy in the first two seasons due to the ParentalAbuse she suffered in her early childhood. It's less noticeable in later seasons since she spent 10+ years surrounded by people who care about her.

* Bertolt Hoover from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' combines this with being an ExtremeDoormat and a CowardlyLion. He's an exceptional soldier on the battlefield, but his lack of confidence leaves him awkwardly lingering on the outskirts of the group. Unlike most examples, he does manage to have friends by virtue of his HeterosexualLifePartner ([[HoYay or is he?]]) being BigManOnCampus Reiner. His shy, meek personality is justified by his DarkAndTroubledPast [[spoiler:in that both he and Reiner are Titan Shifters -- specifically, the two Titans responsible for the destruction of Shiganshina and Wall Maria]].

* Machi Kuragi from ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. A male example is WholesomeCrossdresser Ritsu Sohma, skirting the line between being played for laughs and being portrayed sympathetically.
* Alphonse Elric from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' definitely qualifies, to the point where his bolder brother often has to stick up for him. Being a disembodied soul of a ten-year-old child locked in an eight-foot suit of armor that cannot feel or age due to an EmergencyTransformation that saved him from an alchemic experiment he and his brother performed that had GoneHorriblyWrong might have something to do with it.

** In stark contrast to her personality in the [[{{Tsundere}} 90s anime]] and [[IceQueen manga]], Rei Hino/Sailor Mars in Anime/SailorMoonCrystal has shades of this trope, especially in her introductory episode.

* Similarly, Aimi Komori is an example of this trope until she puts on her magic eye shadow and transforms into the brash, sexy ClassyCatBurglar ''Manga/ShadowLady''.

to:

* Similarly, Ruu, Rii's [[spoiler:kid sister]], from ''Manga/SchoolLive'' is very quiet and rarely interacts with anyone but Rii. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out the reason for this is because [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness she doesn't exist]], or at least [[DeadAllAlong not anymore]]. Ruu presumably died off-screen however Rii hallucinates that a teddy bear is her.]]

* Cathy from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' is an odd case. Usually, she's the shy girl who is never noticed and afraid to talk to anyone. But she does have another side, one where she dresses in ElegantGothicLolita to make her resemble a CatGirl in order to duel, at which point a far more energetic personality emerges.
