* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', there's Fuuka Yamagishi, the team's resident MysteriousWaif and MissionControl, who has a school reputation for being frail, shy and easily bullied. She's actually much more resilient and headstrong than her reputation suggests, but when Junpei "CasanovaWannabe" Iori points out how developed she looks in a swimsuit, she can only manage a panicked, inarticulate squeak and quickly hides behind the other female party members in embarrassment.
** And possibly topping Fuuka is "Justice" social link NPC Chihiro Fushimi, the painfully shy student council treasurer who can't speak to any male character about anything at all without stammering. Completing her social link {{sidequest}} helps her get better, and reveals that she's also a (very mild) Type B {{tsundere}}. By ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', she's overcome her shyness enough to become StudentCouncilPresident.
** And a third, surprising, example in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' is Akihiko Sanada. The team's SpiritedCompetitor and school boxing champion, most of the time he's an AloofBigBrother sort that most of the girls in the school [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys would love to date]] ...at least, until he actually tries to impress a girl, and falls into a nervous stammer. A character video late in the game shows him reading books in his room on how to talk to girls and trying, and failing, to rehearse a conversation without getting flustered. This is probably best exemplified by talking to him in Tartarus when playing as a female protagonist in a romance with him. Up to this point, Akihiko has consistently shown the ability to filter out distractions while fighting, even when emotions are running high. But when the female player merely ''speaks'' to him then, he's reduced to this: "Wh... What? Oh... sorry... Iím... kind of nervous... ...Donít look at me too much."
* Mio Kisaragi, Megumi Mikihara ''and'' Miharu Tatebayashi from the first ''TokimekiMemorial''. Each, in their own ways: Mio is a {{Meganekko}} IllGirl, Megumi is very sheltered and naive, Miharu is [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy]] and awkward.
* ''FireEmblem'' has a few:
** The Mage Tinny in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'', second generation, due to years of abuse and seeing her [[GenkiGirl genki mother]] Tiltyu [[BreakTheCutie completely broken]] [[spoiler: [[KillTheCutie and later dead]]]] due to it. Azel is a male version.
** The Pegasus Knight Florina in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', since [[DoesNotLikeMen she's very scared of males]] (though she [[CharacterDevelopment grows out]] of this and can either marry a very brash HotBlooded guy or become the partner of her ActionGirl best friend). Also [[MysteriousWaif Ninian]], but due to her [[BreakTheCutie traumatic past and guilt issues]].
** The Manakete Myrrh in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'': she's been sheltered an revered as a living goddess in Caer Pelyn her whole life and leaving home brings her quite the misfortune until she's rescued by Ephraim.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' brings us Astrid, sheltered noblewoman who, though she wants to prove herself, fits this quite perfectly, she even looks like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Hinata]]. Nephenee also fits this trope, which makes both characters [[EnsembleDarkHorse Ensemble Dark Horses.]]
** From ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]'' there is Olivia, a rare case of a dancer with performance anxiety. She sports an almost perpetual LuminescentBlush because of her general shyness. It's lampshaded with her title in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue during the ending credits: [[ShapedLikeItself Shrinking Violet]]. Inigo also has shades of this trope, though he normally covers it up well enough unless [[spoiler: someone catches him dancing]].
* Mia Ausa from ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar''.
* Naminť in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2''. Less so in her final appearance, ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.
* Despinis, one of the Homunculus of Duminuss in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsReversal'' fits this trope to a T. Even when attacking, there's not a chance she'll not slip up the phrase "I'm sorry". All with a face of a half-sick, super shy {{Lolicon}} bait. On the bright side, she does have some sort of kindness streak and this proves to be beneficial that [[spoiler:in OG Gaiden, instead of dying like in her original role in R, she ends up surviving.]]
* Emil from ''TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' fits this trope squarely. It probably doesn't help that everyone else in his hometown, his own aunt and uncle included, believe he's a worthless scum who'd be better off dead.
** [[spoiler:Emil also subverts this trope in Ratatosk Mode, where he becomes a very blunt JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and the exact opposite of the "Normal" Emil.]]
* Elise from ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia''. It's a result of the people in her town treating her like a freak because of her abnormal proficiency with magic for her age, on top of seldom being let out of her home by her caretaker for safety reasons.
* In ''{{Pokemon}}'' there's Jasmine, the Gym Leader of Olivine City, to the point where her gym has no other trainers in it besides herself. She makes a cameo appearance in the fourth generation games and proves to be just as timid as ever. All the more jarring when her Steelix kicks your ass.
** The fourth generation also has Marley, who only speaks just enough to get the point across.
** Male example in the fifth generation is Cilan. Compared to his [[AmbiguouslyGay anime counterpart]], the Cilan in the game comes off as very shy and having almost no confidence in his ability. His tendency to stutter before, during and after the battle doesn't help his case and when you compare his personality to his brothers [[HotBlooded Chili]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Cress]], it's very jarring.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXandY'', Battle Chatelaine Evelyn fits this trope to a T, up to the point that she stutters in her speech.
* Male example: Vivi from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''.
* Mr. Lopez from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''.
* Another male example: Shizumaru Hisame from ''SamuraiShodown''.
* Chihaya from ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' is very much like this, overlapping a bit with {{Kuudere}}.
** Yukiho, too.
* Tali'Zorah [[spoiler: vas Normandy]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', who is shocked (and later grateful) that Commander Shepard would be [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe willing to return the feelings she's harbored for him since the first game.]] And bless [[HotScientist Liara's]] heart! At least in the [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 first game]], but she still has that adorable "I just want to help" personality ... Although Tali dose act quite reserved in her romance, she isn't generally shy and is capable of having a conversation without stuttering or getting nervous
* The Fairy prince Edgar from the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' series. Justified by the fact he's spent most of his life being "raised" by the cruel and vicious Lolotte, and was [[spoiler: transformed into]] a deformed, ugly, green-skinned hunchback. He can barely make eye contact with Rosella without blushing. He's developed a bit more of a spine in his second appearance, but he's still very shy and quiet.
* They cover their faces with masks and wear robes that cover their entire bodies... clearly, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Shy Guys]] are the kings of this trope.
** Also the Boos, who will stalk and haunt Mario as he attempts to go about his adventures, preparing to rip him apart with their razor-sharp fangs.... but can't do it if he's looking at them.
* Male example: Lucas from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' prior to CharacterDevelopment.
** ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' also has a village of small creatures who are too shy to talk to the player, or even to each other.
* Cloud in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII CrisisCore'', as a gawky teenager with no self-esteem and one friend. The final scene shows him starting the story of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' - under the fake persona of a [[TallDarkAndSnarky glamorous, arrogant, jerk]] {{Badass}} ProfessionalKiller who is always at the centre of attention and doesn't ''need'' friends.
** Tifa is a mild example, usually when it comes to Cloud.
* Nitori Kawashiro from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game ''Mountain of Faith''. Her first reaction to the player character? [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail RUN AWAY!]]
** Kisume from ''Subterranean Animism'' hides in a bucket out of shyness. She is so shy, most of the time she often outright refuses to show her face to people. The implication being that the head that peeks up from the bucket ''is not hers''... And, yea, in case you're wondering; her being an AxCrazy ShrinkingViolet ''is'' canon.
* In the DatingSim ''Videogame/AlwaysRememberMe'', one of the {{love interest}}s is a shy, but {{adorkable}} guy who is more comfortable texting than speaking with the protagonist in person. He also blushes quite a bit around her, and is [[spoiler: the secret admirer sending her encouraging emails]].
* Hope Esthiem from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Early on in the game, he was very cowardly until Vanille helped him come out of his shell. Come ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII-2}}'', he has become a charismatic leader.
* [[UmJammerLammy Lammy]] is a very shy, insecure girl. [[HiddenBadass However, when she has her guitar, either with her or]] [[MagicFeather in her mind...]]
* In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'', there's Gray, Cliff and Mary, (''Mineral Town'') Marlin and Celia (''A Wonderful Life/Another Wonderful Life'', ''DS/DS Cute''), and Cadance (''Tree of Tranquility, Animal Parade'')
