* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', Violet is the only one in her family with black hair with plenty of blue highlights, and she's also the only one who is shy.

* Flora (or Nera in the DS remake) from ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' is this.


** Marianne of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThreeHouses'' easily fits, being sheepish, soft-spoken, and generally more eager to spend her time with animals than with people. She's close friends with the far louder pink-haired Hilda.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' has Flora/Nera. The most reserved and demure of the hero's three potential brides just so happens to be the one with blue hair.


* Taken further by Cherry Trau of ''Webcomic/{{Superego}}''. Each character has a ColorMotif associated with them, and not only their hair but their [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation bodies]] will be that color. Cherry's is, of course, blue, and she's very much a ShrinkingViolet. [[spoiler:In fact, she has [[HollywoodPersonalityDisorders Avoidant Personality Disorder]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* Willow of ''WesternAnimation/TheOwlHouse'' has dark teal hair and is established in her first appearance as very shy and insecure due to being mocked for her seemingly poor skill at magic, as well as her broken childhood frienship with Amity Blight.
** Downplayed somewhat in that Willow is established as shy and meek, but not only shows a temper in her first appearance, but growns more self-confident over the course of the first season due to Luz's influence and [[spoiler: patching her frienship with Amity]].


* Chrome Dokuro from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. [[spoiler:Though she shares her body with a man who is more psycho than shy...]].



* Due to an AdaptationDyeJob, this is inverted with Yue Ayase in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Starting out in the manga, she has blue hair with a [[TheSnarkKnight cynical]] personality obsessed with philosophy, but eventually moves farther towards shy once she begins getting closer to Negi and her hair is changed to purple.
** Nodoka Miyazaki in ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'' gets blue hair (as opposed to the other series where she is a literal ShrinkingViolet) and is really shy, a [[CuteBookworm bookworm]], and thinks with her head.
* Natsuki Kuga of ''Anime/MaiHime''. You wouldn't know it at first, since she's also an ActionGirl, but Natsuki doesn't like opening up to people, is highly self-conscious about other people walking in on her in the bath, even other girls (Mai in episode 25 and Shizuru in the directors cut of episode 26), and is easily flustered by personal attention, which [[TheGadfly Shizuru]] exploits for her own amusement.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has a number of blue/indigo-haired characters, but the {{kappa}} Nitori Kawashiro, pictured above, a GadgeteerGenius who wants to be friends with humans but is incredibly shy around them, is the one who plays this straightest...at least in her first appearance in the tenth game, ''Mountain of Faith''. She's [[CharacterizationMarchesOn become increasingly more outspoken with each appearance she's made]], becoming somewhat impatient in ''Subterranean Animism'' before [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]] in ''Hopeless Masquerade''.

** Sapphire has fluffy light blue hair and is who Garnet gets the pensive and quiet nature from. Sapphire can get so focused on the future due to her [[{{Seers}} ability to predict the future]] that she forgets to engage in the present, and is prone to anxiety because of this, as revealed in the song "Here Comes a Thought".

Sapphire, [[spoiler: much like her former Diamond]], also speaks in a soft voice.

Added DiffLines:

* Several in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Lapis Lazuli has dark blue hair, is rather reserved and aloof until you get to know her, and holds a lot of anxiety and depression within her due to past trauma.

** Blue Diamond has light blue hair and is the most melancholic of the four diamonds. She also speaks in a soft voice. Her serene aesthetic however hides a [[spoiler: cold and vindictive side that she's not afraid to unleash if you cross her or her loved ones]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/BangDream'':
** Kanon Matsubara is easily flustered and timid in social situations, and being dragged into joining Hello, Happy World by [[GenkiGirl Kokoro]] is a major jump out of her comfort zone, but over the course of the series, she gradually becomes more outgoing and confident in herself, crediting the band with helping her change for the better.
** Rokka Asahi also qualifies. A kindhearted girl who moved to Tokyo in the hopes of being in a band, she's unassuming in her daily life. [=CHU2=]'s aggressive attempts to recruit her result in her panicking and running away, until she does ultimately decide to audition.

* Akira Sakura from ''Manga/NaruTaru'' is about as shy as this trope can get, to the point of suicidal {{Deconstruction}}. It turns out that she is shy and nervous because of [[spoiler:sexual abuse at the hands of her father combined with a crippling social phobia.]]

* Waterfall in ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire''. She's by far the nicest of her 5 girl band. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Except when she isn't...]]
* Jolene “Brooksie” Brooks of ''Webcomic/BetweenFailures''. From the cast page: ''She is shy, yet can be outgoing once she gets comfortable with her surroundings.''
* Kimiko Ross in ''Webcomic/DresdenCodak'' fits this trope to a T. She is easily one of the smartest people in an already highly advanced world, and is extremely logic-driven. She is constantly inventing crazy advanced technology, and even [[spoiler:created several advanced prostheses for herself after getting half her body blown up]]. On top of that, she is very socially handicapped when it comes to new relationships, acting very clumsy and shy around boys she is interested in. And her hair is bluish black.
* Tedd Verres in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a perfect male version of this, although it's purple hair instead of blue. He was especially shy during his younger years, though he has opened up somewhat since then. He is the smartest of the group and is constantly inventing or experimenting on stuff. And, for bonus points, [[GenderBender he frequently transforms himself into a girl for fun]].

* Mizore, the oboe player in ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'', is so shy that she comes off as an EmotionlessGirl and seems to have only one friend at a time. Her blue hair is all the more salient given that the vast majority of the characters in the show have some shade of black or brown hair.
