* In ''Manga/ASilentVoice'' when Shouya Ishida [[TheScapegoat is scapegoated]] for all the horrible bullying of Shouko Nishimiya (he ''was'' the ringleader and the worst of them, but ''all'' the blame is placed on him) ''all'' of his friends abandon him, even Ueno, the girl who [[ClingyJealousGirl had a crush on him and largely bullied Shouko out of jealousy of the attention Shouya paid to her]]. His supposed best friends Shimada and Hirose even join the rest of the class in bullying Shouya in turn, suggesting they never really liked him in the first place and mainly hung around with him because he was cool.

Added DiffLines:

* Sera from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' is be by far ''the'' hardest companion to maintain positive approval with, due to her HairTriggerTemper, her FantasticRacism towards mages and the Dalish, and having ''very'' few opportunities to raise her approval outside her romance.
** Said romantic approval is also much harder to raise and much easier to lose for an Elven Inquisitor due to Sera's [[InternalizedCategorism many issues]] with [[BoomerangBigot elven culture and Dalish elves]]. Many of the same flirts that earn high approval for other Inquisitors earn small approval for an Elf, and making ''any'' elf-positive statements and actions upsets her far more than doing so as a non-elf. [[spoiler:This culminates after the Temple of Mythal, where Sera will break up with an Elven Inquisitor unless they say they agree with her that the elven religion/culture is fake/worthless, but she'll agree to disagree with every other Inquisitor.]]

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Adolin is disturbed to find that all his friends want nothing to do with him now that his family's political future is uncertain. Part of this is Adolin's fault, as he was friendly with pretty much everyone but didn't try to forge meaningful relationships with anyone besides his brother. Mostly, it's a sign of how shallow and corrupt the Alethi elite have become.
