* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard.'' Fuli's friends notice that she goes off to hunt by herself, so they decide to join her to make sure she feels included. They then learn that Fuli ''enjoys'' hunting alone and needs time to be by herself sometimes. Moreover, the fact that she needs to be by herself sometimes doesn't mean she doesn't still love her friends.

* Justified in a TearJerker way in ''Anime/AngelBeats''. Due to the system that the afterlife works in, Angel will always eat alone since [[spoiler: being friends with her is automatic grounds to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]]. [[http://i42.tinypic.com/a48zk2.jpg This picture sums her life up]], and for all we know, she may have lived this "life" for ''years''.

Very much TruthInTelevision. There are introverted people who enjoy the solitude, and even extroverts with normal social lives are known to do it for various reasons. More rarely, there are numerous anxiety disorders that can make one extremely self-conscious and uncomfortable about having others watch them eat.

eat. Another reason for it to happen is that cooking and eating are (somehow) parts of one's culture, so eating together can cause various CultureClash.

When someone is eating lunch alone in a communal context (school, army, etc.), it means he or she is being actively shunned by everyone else, or the student is the New Kid and [[FriendlessBackground has not yet made any friends]]. It rarely ever means that he ''[[LonersAreFreaks chose]]'' to eat lunch by himself. Often, their return into the fold will be symbolized by someone else accepting to have lunch with them. Or if they keep their outcast status, having lunch with them will be a sign of independence of mind and refusing to follow the herd.

* In ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[PerpetualFrowner Ange]] essentially eats lunch by herself every day because she is constantly shunned and bullied by the other girls at her private school. However, she uses this time to read her cousin Maria's diary, which she sees as a way of communing with her, and later learns to summon magical beings, Sakutarou and the Seven Sisters of Purgatory, to keep her company. Depending on your perspective, this is either genuine magic and a great source of happiness for the long-suffering Ange, or a truly pitiable case of someone who has to resort to deluding herself just to stay sane.

** When Peter secedes from the US and starts his own country, he is mocked at UN meetings and forced to eat lunch alone in the UN cafeteria. He is then approached by another ambassador who gives him some advice.
--->'''Ambassador:''' They don't respect you.\\
'''Peter:''' Whaddaya mean?\\
'''Ambassador:''' Listen to me. I used to be the laughingstock around here until my country invaded Kuwait. Now I have a seat in the ''third row''. Look, the only way to get any respect around here is to find something you want and just take it!\\
'''Peter:''' Wait a second. If everybody respects you, how come you're still eatin' here by yourself?\\
'''Ambassador:''' I don't shower.\\
'''Peter:''' Ohhhh, ''that's'' what that is...
