** Luigi is deathly afraid of ghosts (and possibly [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Waddle Dees]] as shown in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl''). Despite this, he has to fight ''hordes'' of them in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' to save his brother, Mario. He finally overcame this fear at the end of ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'', even going so far as to [[spoiler:adopt the Polterpup as a pet]].

* Ayako Katagiri in ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial''. A fear very well known in the series' fandom, and milked for all its worth by the creators, [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine as antics-wise]], [[OddFriendship she's regularly paired with]] Nozomi Kiyokawa, the resident swimming-lover and champion (who, {{iron|y}}ically, suffers from a primal fear of her own, thunder).

* In ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Indiana Jones]]'', several puzzles revolve around Indy's fear of snakes. You have to get rid of the snakes with another character (and it's not as easy as attacking them, since they're often in [[GrimyWater deadly mud]]) so Indy will join you where his skills are needed.

* ''Nobody'' in ''[[LegoAdaptationGame Lego Lord of the Rings]]'' can go into dark places without some light source; they back out shaking their head. This gets downright ''silly'' when you consider that Dwarves typically live ''underground'', and that Gollum is very well-adjusted to darkness and light actually hurts him. They should be fine in the dark, but no. You have to send Frodo (who carries a light) into a dark cave first so that Gollum can go in and climb up the wall that starts there.
