* [[StarfishAliens Ahem]] in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''
* Trevor, Vallant's pet rat in ''Webcomic/TehGladiators'', whose preferred method of combat is to stick his head in the ground until the danger has passed. Vallant spends a great deal of time training him to unleash his Beast Within, with only partial success.
* Elly, from ''Webcomic/DubiousCompany''. Being a [[{{Adorkable}} wimpy]], [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy]], [[DudeLooksLikeALady pretty boy]] his whole life limits [[TheChick his perspective]]. Even in the few occasions he does try to be brave, the [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes raccoon]] decides its time for [[TheGlomp hugs]], or his opponent is [[AbhorrentAdmirer Mary or Marty]]. In later arcs, he makes up for this with his [[MinMaxing natural]] [[GuileHero strengths]].
