* Rhoda of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a near-literal example, a petite girl whose perception of her own size [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-12-29 actually shrinks when she feels intimidated]]. She appeared early on in the background of [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-06-28 one single strip,]] and [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2006-06-30 became a bit of a fan favorite]] despite the fact that she hadn't done anything at that point.
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-09-23 Tedd was a male example]] prior to receiving the TF Gun.
* Punned and subverted in ''[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=94220 Everyday Heroes]]''
* Male example: Doug from ''Webcomic/FletcherApts'', especially when it comes to women. Also a HollywoodNerd and ButtMonkey when Bill is involved.
* Clementine in ''Webcomic/{{Frivolesque}}'' definitely qualifies. She has no confidence, considering herself too tall and forgettable, and blushes everytime someone talks to her.
* Faen in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', just adding to her {{Woobie}} quotient. [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?id=255 as seen here]].
* Jolene Brooks ("Brooksie") of ''Webcomic/BetweenFailures'' is something like this.
* Secret of ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' is like this, a renegade abyssal who suffers from severe self-esteem issues.
* ''[[http://wrightasrayne.thecomicseries.com/ Wright As Rayne]]'' proudly features Laura Croft, who unlike [[Franchise/TombRaider a different character with a similar name,]] [[http://wrightasrayne.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/81467 couldn't be more timid if she tried.]]
* Katherine of ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'' started out like this, but she is now a bit more confident, and at least willing to speak to some people.
* Gebo, the white wolf in ''Webcomic/OffWhite''. More like a real wolf then the evil, vicious monster, or emotionless, badass loner, [[AnimalStereotypes stereotypes.]]
* ''Webcomic/NinthElsewhere'': The main character, Carmen, has elements of this.
** While a party for her is being thrown downstairs: "Maybe if I stay up here long enough they'll decide to just leave me alone."
* Yuri, aka "Webcomic/IronVioletTheShyTitan" is a very shy and insecure girl. AbusiveParents is implied to be the cause of this plus past bullying. Due to the kindness of her best friend, and her adventures as a superhero, she's slowly attempting to overcome this. She's taken on a robot girl with super-speed and a fire-throwing supervillain, yet she still blushes at the thought of wearing a miniskirt.
* Neeka from ''[[http://quietandslow.com/ Late Blooming]]'' is impossibly shy, to the point of hardly ever talking to anyone and putting all effort into avoiding contact with people.
* In ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'', Emily the witch is a downplayed example of this.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3046 Crimney]] before his CharacterDevelopment.
* Mina in ''Webcomic/AlienHandSyndrome'' isn't ''completely'' withdrawn, but she's certainly awkward and uncomfortable in social situations. Her friend Erin alternates between making fun of her shyness and trying to cure it.
* Curio from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]''. To the point where he makes a habit of [[http://morphe.thewebcomic.com/comics/1840376/chapter-2-page-54-drop-dead/ faking death under pressure.]]
* Lidusis from ''Webcomic/BlackHaze'' is a classic example, only male. He's [[TheQuietOne quiet]], [[BlindingBangs rarely shows his eyes]], and [[StockShoujoBullyingTactics is the victim of some pretty]] [[BullyBrutality severe bullying]]. One might expect the latter to be the cause of his ShrinkingViolet nature, but a flashback reveals [[LonelyRichKid he was like this as a kid, too]].
* In ''Webcomic/YumisCells'', Yumi has a lot of trouble speaking her mind and standing up for herself, partly due to a breakup doing a number on her self-confidence.
* Pluto from ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'' is a male example; he's incredibly lonely at the edge of the solar system and wants desperately to talk to the planets, but is too shy to actually approach them. They, meanwhile, think that his distance from everyone else is aloofness and that he doesn't ''want'' anything to do with them.
