* Miss Martian is this way in ''WebAnimation/DCSuperheroGirls''. When introduced to Franchise/WonderWoman in episode 1 she turns invisible and she later does the same when ComicBook/PoisonIvy tries to talk to her. Apparently this is common for her and the only person she seems fine around is ComicBook/{{Starfire}}.

* The Porcelain Doctor from ''Literature/DeadWest'' plays with this. His aura, [[BlessedWithSuck The Devil's Veil]] compells people to think he is this, and a FragileFlower to boot. Sure he is reserved and quiet, but he is a military surgeon, leader of the medical corps, and if on the field, he is not shy about shouting and ordering people around. He is also not the kind [[BewareOfTheNiceOnes whom you can easily push around]].

Added DiffLines:

* Lauchlan, the main character of Literature/MixBeerWithLiquorAndYouWillGetSicker is painfully shy, socially inept and introverted to a fault. He has no friends beyond his immediate family, his neighbor's housemaid, his cat and the company horses. His self-esteem issues and crushing lack of social skills makes something as simple as talking to shopkeepers rather harrowing. Add in that he's a NervousWreck, and Word of God declaring that he's on the Autism Spectrum, and he's practically got a whole bouquet.

* Subverted in ''DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''. The title character is painfully shy, and has been quietly in love with a girl from his laundromat for months. Ironically, his alter ego is a megalomaniacal villain who wants to rule the world.

* Jen Delaney of ''Literature/TheJenkinsverse'' was a nobody with a dead-end job in I.T. whose entire love life consisted of one ill-advised drunken fumble at the office Christmas party... prior to her AlienAbduction. Getting away from Earth seems to have agreed with her, transforming her into a confident, competent, self-described "Space-Babe".

* Christine on ''TheWarComms'', ''big time''. Her sentences more often than not end with "um...please don't hurt me for saying so...".

* Taylor, the protagonist of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', began the story this way thanks to a year-and-a-half bullying campaign, but GrewASpine after she began kicking ass as the supervillain Skitter.
** Cuff, of the [[KidHero Chicago Wards]], is a more enduring example. While she's capable of kicking ass with the rest of them using her ExtraOreDinary metal-manipulation powers, she's normally shy and avoids conflict.
* A somewhat darker example in Hector, the protagonist of ''[[http://thezombieknight.blogspot.com The Zombie Knight]]''. Not only is he immensely shy and frequently struggling with his own words, but also [[spoiler: killed himself out of loneliness and depression]]. Obtaining undead superpowers does not (as of yet) appear to have changed this. Upon rescuing someone from being tortured and killed, he had this to say:
-->"Sorry. Id untie you, but... you should probably stay and explain... uh, to the police... about what he tried to do to you. Otherwise, he could... you know... get away with it... and... yeah...
-->[...]
-->"Oh! But, uh... dont worry! The police will be here any minute. And hes unconscious now. And I tied him up just in case. So... uh... y-youre safe, now. And I-I should, I should go..."

* Erika Swanson of ''ErikasNewPerfume'' is definitely one of these, though she is very gradually coming out of it. Still not helped by the situation she wound up in trying to magically resolve it, even if it is slowly doing the trick.
