I'll have to go with Gawain on this one. Apperently the Green Knight can walk around with his head cut off so really he wasn't in much danger. Gawain shows up a year later knowing he would probably be getting his head cut off like a chicken. Sure he wears the "magic" scarf but really, did he think it would actually work? Gawain presents his head for the Green Knight to sever; that's pretty courageous!
