* The ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Hollow Pursuits" introduces us to Lt. Reginald "Reg" Barclay, a highly neurotic engineer. During much of the episode, Geordi wonders why Barclay is incredibly hard to work with [[WhoopiEpiphanySpeech until he talks with Guinan about him]].
-->'''Geordi:''' Barclay, he's always late, he's nervous, nobody wants to be around him.
-->'''Guinan:''' If I had the feeling that nobody wanted to be around me, I'd probably be late and nervous too.

** The [[Manga/SailorMoon R Movie]] has a scene that shows how ''all'' of the Inner Senshi were like this. Ami/Mercury was rejected for being a TeenGenius (and mistaken for an InsufferableGenius), Rei/Mars was shunned for her PsychicPowers, Makoto/Jupiter was feared for her SuperStrength, and Minako/Venus was thought less of for "[[YourCostumeNeedsWork pretending to be Sailor V]]." Then, [[AllLovingHero Usagi]] came into their lives and saved them from their loneliness. The scene as a whole happens [[spoiler:when [[TheDragon Fiore]] is ''[[ToThePain torturing Usagi to almost death]]'' after she pleas for him to spare the kidnapped Senshi's lives... and they throw themselves at Fiore's feet and claim that, if not for her, they'd be alone in the world]]. ''[[TearJerker Heartbreaking]]''.
** [[LostInTranslation Whether this was in the American version or not]], the german version showed that Minako was an outcast due to being a loner and appearing stuck-up - due to her leaving or disappearing so often to work as Sailor V.
* In ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', [[TheOjou rich and pretty]] Kotonoha is bullied by [[AlphaBitch Otome]] and her GirlPosse. Later, Setsuna also bullies her, in an attempt to keep her away from Makoto and make sure he goes to Sekai. It gets worse, although [[spoiler:the worst of it didn't fall on Otome or anyone in her immediate circle of JerkAss friends]].

** Sajin Komamura was treated like a monster due to being a [[CanisMajor huge anthromorphic canine]]. His loyalty to Yamamoto stems from Yamamoto being the first person to have ever looked past his appearance to see the man beneath. When Kenpachi destroyed the helmet he wore to hide his features, the reaction from others was relief that he was no longer hiding himself because they'd felt the helmet made him seem shifty and now they could trust him because he was being open about himself. No-one cared about his actual features.
** Ichigo Kurosaki and Orihime Inoue were bullied for their ImplausibleHairColour. Ichigo is often mistaken as a delinquent because of his hair colour and Orihime had a TraumaticHaircut forced on her by bullies. She was completely alone until Tatsuki befriended her.
** [[TinMan Ulquiorra]] [[TheDragon Cifer]] is a [[CryForTheDevil rather]] [[TragicVillain tragic]] villainous example. He was the only white arrancar in an all-black clan. When he first came into being, the others all tried to destroy him, so he killed them first and remained alone until he met [[ManipulativeBastard Ai]][[BigBad zen]].
