** From ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fates]]'' Princess Sakura of Hoshido stands out of being this trope because she can't even speak without stuttering.

** From ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fates]]'' Princess Sakura of Hoshido stands out of being this trope because she can't even speak without stuttering. It is also implied it runs in the family. Her older sister Hinoka flat-out says she was like Sakura in her support with Sakura, and several of Sakura's older brother Takumi's other supports and other characters' dialogues imply he ''was'' this too. His ''current'' personality when the game takes place, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold however..]]

** Cloud in ''Final Fantasy VII VideoGame/CrisisCore'', as a gawky teenager with no self-esteem and one friend. The final scene shows him starting the story of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' - under the fake persona of a [[TallDarkAndSnarky glamorous, arrogant, jerk]] {{Badass}} ProfessionalKiller who is always at the centre of attention and doesn't ''need'' friends.

** The Manakete Myrrh in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'': she's been sheltered and revered as a living goddess in Caer Pelyn her whole life and leaving home brings her quite the misfortune until she's rescued by Ephraim.

** The Manakete Myrrh in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'': she's been sheltered and revered as a living goddess in Caer Pelyn her whole life and leaving home brings her quite the misfortune until she's rescued by Ephraim. Also the BigBad Lyon actually was this. It is heavily implied that he never have any friend because of his shy nature, that the Renais twins are his only friends. Uniquely, overlaps with PurpleIsPowerful. He is THE strongest mage in Magvel universe, bar none, yet his personality is still insecure, timid and shy.

** When around girls, Knuckles can qualify for a male version of this, especially when taking quotes like this into account.
-->'''Rouge:''' Still, you were pretty dashing and daring this time around.
-->'''Knuckles:''' Huh? You really think so? I mean, I don't think I was really all that, um... [[MoodWhiplash Hey! Where's the detector?!]]
-->'''Rouge:''' Nothing ever changes with you does it? Anyway, thanks for the Master Emerald!
-->'''Knuckles:''' Wait! Wait you... You bat thief! Get back here!

* Satura from ''VideoGame/{{Runbow}}'' turns out to be this in the DLC mission. She may have ultimately become friends with the Hues and Vals after her defeat in the normal adventure mode, but she still feels shy and lacks confidence around them due to her being born without color, preferring to sit by herself in The Last Luau and draw in her sketchbook. It's only after she gets convinced to join the others on a trip to the new Outta This World poster that showed up that she starts to get over it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', there's Fuuka Yamagishi, the team's resident MysteriousWaif and MissionControl, who has a school reputation for being frail, shy and easily bullied. She's actually much more resilient and headstrong than her reputation suggests, but when Junpei "CasanovaWannabe" Iori points out how developed she looks in a swimsuit, she can only manage a panicked, inarticulate squeak and quickly hides behind the other female party members in embarrassment.

* Emil from ''TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' fits this trope squarely. It probably doesn't help that everyone else in his hometown, his own aunt and uncle included, believe he's a worthless scum who'd be better off dead.
** [[spoiler:Emil also subverts this trope in Ratatosk Mode, where he becomes a very blunt JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and the exact opposite of the "Normal" Emil.]]
