A gang of misfits whom no one likes and/or don't like themselves either get together or, more often, an elder, often a ZenSurvivor, brings them together: he (or, more rarely, she) just hides it better. A circle of TrueCompanions forms out of everyone's lives sucking so much they ended up stuck with each other. If they actually want to stick together because otherwise they would be alone, they are LonelyTogether.

A concise way of saying it: most, if not all of the cast, in the group count as TheWoobie (or at least have a lot of {{Wangst}}) in their own individual way, even if it may not seem so at first.

* JohnFord's acclaimed Western film ''{{Stagecoach}}'' did this trope way back in 1939, making the trope OlderThanTelevision. The seven passengers on the stage to Lordsburg, New Mexico, include [[JohnWayne an outlaw]], a prostitute, an alcoholic, and [[StillFightingTheCivilWar an ex-Confederate who isn't shy about expressing his political views]]. [[note]] The "alienation from society" theme, while not overt, is certainly there: the alcoholic refers to himself and the prostitute as "victims of social prejudice" - and they are, although the prostitute has a little more self-respect. [[/note]] In the end, however, they have all developed respect for each other, largely as a result of [[FireForgedFriends cooperating to fight off a war party of Apaches]] - [[spoiler: except for the ex-Confederate, who is killed by the Apaches]].

* ''Literature/TheSunAlsoRises'' is about a Breakfast Club of American expatriates living in France in TheRoaringTwenties. The group consists of a UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne veteran (who is impotent due to an injury sustained during the war), a jaded ChristmasCake [[LadyDrunk party girl]], and a shy guy who just wants everyone to get along. Each dealing with their own problems and drama. The book is a deconstruction of the trope.
