Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': More than just one. Some examples are:
** Fey: A {{downplayed}} example, and a trope she develops out of. She speaks softly initially when she first arrives at Whateley Academy, as said in [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/stories/132 Welcome to Poe]]:
---> Belle nodded then turned to Fey. "Your turn, hon."\\
Fey drew in a breath, then started out softly.\\
[...]\\
"Could you speak just a bit louder, dear?" Belle questioned with an encouraging smile. "You have a beautiful voice and shouldn't be ashamed of it at all. Plus, your grammar is pretty good so far, by the way.
** Tennyo: She's is actually quite shy until she gets to know you, which other people see as aloof and feeds into her "AllOfTheOtherReindeer" problems.
** Lapin: Currently suffering from PTSD, depression, and a generally poor self image, which all conspire to make her less than assertive, especially under the influence of her nymphomania meds, but Dr. Bellows judges that it's best to control the nymphomania and try to rebuild her self esteem using more conventional therapy.

* Gloria Benson in V4 of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''. She's always whispering, stuttering, ''and'' blushing when she speaks. Even when she talks to her friends, she's painfully shy/quiet, and keeps apologizing for what she says. Lucy Ashmore, also from v4, qualifies as well. She's just as shy, due to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer bullying]]. Sometimes this slides into CuteClumsyGirl territory as well, due to her nervousness.

* Nessiah in ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'' almost never talks to people he doesn't like and trust--in addition to being very shy, he's been through [[TraumaCongaLine excessive]] [[RapeAsDrama amounts]] [[SanitySlippage of trauma]] [[{{Hikikomori}} recently]], and is still recovering from aphasia, which makes it difficult for him to string full sentences together anyway. He's still his usual ''dere'' self around Milanor, though.

Added DiffLines:

* 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}}.

Added DiffLines:

* 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...".
