* 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.

** Cloud in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIICrisisCore'', 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.

* 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.]]

* In ''{{Pokemon}}'' there's Jasmine, the Gym Leader of Olivine City, to the point where her gym has no other trainers in it besides herself. She makes a cameo appearance in the fourth generation games and proves to be just as timid as ever. All the more jarring when her Steelix kicks your ass.

** Male example in the fifth generation is Cilan. Compared to his [[AmbiguouslyGay anime counterpart]], the Cilan in the game comes off as very shy and having almost no confidence in his ability. His tendency to stutter before, during and after the battle doesn't help his case and when you compare his personality to his brothers [[HotBlooded Chili]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Cress]], it's very jarring.

* Oka Ruto, the Occult Club president, from ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''. Her default walk cycle has her hunched over and trying to take up as little space as possible, and she speaks in a halting, hesitating manner. Her student info also notes her shyness.

** Yandere-chan ''[[BitchInSheepsClothing acts]]'' like this if she gets too close to Senpai (in fact she switches to the same walk cycle as Oka). The hand-wringing can be something of an inconvenience, as she drops whatever she was holding (like, say, a bloody knife).

* Despite her being quite a tough girl, ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'''s Blaze the Cat does have her moments of this, especially around the more bubby Amy Rose, ever so cheerful Cream, cocky Sonic, or even [[VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames Peach and Daisy]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'' has a ''literal example''. The Shrinking Violet is a violet that [[ShrinkRay shrinks all zombies around it]]. Its Almanac entry subverts this, however- she ''used to be'' this trope until she learned of her talent of zombie-shrinking powers.

* Zaalbar from ''VideoGame/KnightsOftheOldRepublic''. He's an adolescent Wookiee, [[theBigGuy which means he's two meters and change of fur and muscle]], [[BigEater backed up with a perpetually empty stomach]], but he's ''painfully'' shy and afraid to speak up for himself, saying he's not much good for anything other than bashing a door in. Even your notoriously charismatic PlayerCharacter can barely manage to get a word out of him. He's more than happy to let his pal Mission do the talking.
