** 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.

** [=GlaDOs=] comes to hate them. [[spoiler:During her stint as a potato, one picked her up against her will, escorted her to its nest and started pecking at her]], so she has good reason to be distrustful.
-->'''[=GlaDOs=]:''' AGH! BIRD! BIRD! Kill it! It's evil!
** Wheatley also demonstrates a dislike for birds.
-->'''Wheatley:''' BIRD, BIRD, BIRD, BIRD!

birds after he's attacked by one (perhaps even the same one [=GLaDOS=] had a run-in with). To be fair, he ''did'' break its eggs.

* Monokuma and Monomi in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' both reveal that they hate mice when the player approaches Nezumi Castle on the fourth island (which isn't supposed to resemble any castle from the ''Ride/DisneyThemeParks'', honest!). As such, they can't even go near it. [[spoiler: This turns out to be plot-relevant. Because Jabberwock Island is all a Virtual Reality simulation, the Future Foundation, the creators of it, decided to implement a failsafe if it all went pear-shaped. Anyone in the teacher role is made to be scared of mice so that they can't go anywhere near the castle, which contains the code to access the inside of the ruins, where the means of activating the Forced Shutdown lies]].

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Midna is very grossed out by frogs and toads, to the point that she refuses to give you any hints when fighting the Deku Toad miniboss in Lakebed Temple.

* Carol Palecki in ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight''. It's one of the rare things that makes her lose her permanent GenkiGirl attitude [[spoiler: or rather, her permanent [[StepfordSmiler Genki Girl facade]]]]. Do ''not'' pull a prank of putting a slug on her, or [[LostForever she'll immediately cut all ties with you]].

* Part of a certain side quest chain in ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'' involves retrieving some baby turtles from the work shed of a hobbit named Grobo Dogroot who just so happens to be deathly afraid of turtles. When you go to pick up the little suckers, each and every one is called "Grobo's Greatest Fear."

* Celine from ''VideoGame/AsdivineHearts'' absolutely adores domesticated animals but is also deathly afraid of them due to being attacked by a dog when she was a child. This is revealed in the game when the talking cat in the party gives Celine permission to pet him and approaches, only to be thrown into the wall by her reaction. She compensates for this fear by having a large collection of stuffed animals instead.
