* The [[UnfortunateNames unfortunately-named]] goblin "[[PropheticName Dies-Horribly]]" from ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' is made of this trope.
-->'''Grem:''' I am a goblin prince. I know when to fight.\\
'''Dies:''' I AM A ''COWARD!'' I KNOW WHEN TO '''RUN!''' Come on!
* [[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]], [[CuteClumsyGirl 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]].
* Emil, from ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'', was raised in a posh family and is still unaccustomed to facing trolls face to face, so rather than following the eponymous RuleNumberOne, he prefers to run and scream. He does run to help Lalli when the latter is in troll-infested wagon, though.
* ''Webcomic/MarioAndLuigiCleanupCrew'': Toad, who is not at all keen on getting involved with the crisis d'jour, but gets roped into it one way or another.
