* Subverted in ''DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''. The title character is painfully shy, and has been quietly in love with a girl from his laundromat for months. Ironically, his alter ego is a megalomaniacal villain who wants to rule the world.
* Nessiah in ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'' almost never talks to people he doesn't like and trust--in addition to being very shy, he's been through [[TraumaCongaLine excessive]] [[RapeAsDrama amounts]] [[SanitySlippage of trauma]] [[{{Hikikomori}} recently]], and is still recovering from aphasia, which makes it difficult for him to string full sentences together anyway. He's still his usual ''dere'' self around Milanor, though.
* Christine on ''WebOriginal/TheWarComms'', ''big time''. Her sentences more often than not end with "um...please don't hurt me for saying so...".
* Gloria Benson in V4 of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest''. She's always whispering, stuttering, ''and'' blushing when she speaks. Even when she talks to her friends, she's painfully shy/quiet, and keeps apologizing for what she says. Lucy Ashmore, also from v4, qualifies as well. She's just as shy, due to [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer bullying]]. Sometimes this slides into CuteClumsyGirl territory as well, due to her nervousness.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-47ogt1TjqA&feature=channel_video_title This youtube account]] has documentaries on what it's like to have the DSM recognized personality disorders including the avoidant.
* ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'': Jane is a quiet and lonely girl who doesn't have any friends and any good family. She's nice, but has NoSocialSkills. It's quite unusual that such a girl would start vlogging and sharing her life with the internet. She considers it a challenge and a brave thing to do, and she would like to get some help from her viewers.
* ''Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars'': At first, Marcia did not like talking with the others. But she warms up to them and becomes more friendly over time.
