Definitely TruthInTelevision since humans are social creatures by nature, although many of us share a similar desire for privacy as well. In fact, GoMadFromTheIsolation is a well-documented occurrence for people who have become truly isolated for an extended period. Otherwise, people who suffer too much from this may be diagnosed with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependent_personality_disorder dependent personality disorder]] or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_anxiety_disorder separation anxiety disorder]].

* Flora, Franchise/ProfessorLayton's adopted daughter, absolutely hates to be left behind by herself and will sneak along on his various cases to avoid it. She even tells him in the second game, when he figures out that it's her in disguise, that "I just didn't want to be all alone again." Considering that she grew up a LonelyRichKid and a literal GirlInTheTower following the deaths of her parents, her feelings are understandable.

* The eponymous character from ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'' grew up deprived of any friends or much familial support, so he often tries [[AttentionWhore drawing excessive attention to himself]] by causing all kinds of mischief to make people notice him. He is also quite close to Iruka because he was the only person who was friendly to him in Konohagakure (before making more friends).

* This is the main reason Kanna from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' used to pull the pranks on her parents, as they purportedly have a hands-off approach to parenting and believed in leaving Kanna to her own devices. Thing is, she went too far and they banished her from their presence. When her only means of companionship in their world, Tohru, supposedly died, she was elated when she found out that she had indeed survived and followed her to the human world to try to bring her back. Unsuccessful in this endeavor, powerless and effectively homeless, Kobayashi invites her into her home to live together. This earns Kobayashi a place in her heart.

* Sheila the Thief from ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'' turns out to be this, specially in the episode that exposes the kids to [[WhatTheyFearEpisode what they fear the most]]. Sheila's biggest fear is to be alone, so she's dropped in a large desert where she's the only living being - by the time the spell is done, the poor girl is in a TroubledFetalPosition and crying her heart out.

** Superman feeling alone and without friends plays out in modern stories such like ''Comicbook/KingdomCome'' -in where he had lost his parents, wife, cousin and friends-, and ''Comicbook/SupermanSecretOrigins'' -in where he didn't dare play with anyone for fear of hurting them-.

* This has been a part of the personalities of Franchise/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} for decades:
** In the Pre-Crisis universe Clark felt very alone when he was Comicbook/{{Superboy}} because he could never play with kids his own age, there was no one like him, and no one could relate to him. Before graduating, his foster parents died, and he felt even more isolated and a bigger outcast. When he met his cousin Kara he felt incredibly happy because he had a family again, someone he could feel connected to.
** Pre-Crisis Supergirl faced almost the same hardships after arriving on Earth. Fortunately Kara already had a blood relative she could talk to, but she spent several months living in an orphanage until she was adopted. She hated the place because she felt utterly alone and friendless in a strange land.
** In ''Superboy #80'' [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SsNtuB78FlI/AAAAAAAAFe0/60uw5Kw3fZE/s1600-h/sb+80-02.jpg both cousins talk about this]].
--->'''Superman:''' Many years ago, when I lived in Smallville as Superboy, I could never play with kids my own age for fear of giving away my identity! Oh, how I longed for a human playmate who was super, like myself!\\
'''Supergirl:''' I know how you feel! I, too, dare not play with anyone my own age!
** In ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'', Superman tells Linda he feels very alone because -even though he's greatest and most loved hero in the world-, he has no social life.
** Superman feeling alone and without friends plays out in modern stories such like ''Comicbook/KingdomCome'' -in where he had lost his parents, wife, cousin and friends-, and ''Comicbook/SupermanSecretOrigins'' -in where he didn't dare play with anyone for fear of hurting them-.
** In ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2009}}'', ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2005}} Kara]]'' and her friend Stephanie Brown -the then-current Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}- watch a cheesy movie. Most of audience laughs out loud when Dracula cries out he is alone, but both girls cannot laugh about it. They know what being alone is like, and they don't find it funny at all.
** ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2011}} Post-Flashpoint Supergirl]]'' was a lonely, angry teenager. Her family and friends were dead, she could not bring herself to trust her cousin, she didn't manage to make friends or fit in with humans. Her issues of alienation, grief and anger got worse until ''[[Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton she flew off the handle]]''.

** ''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Michonne discovers that she's no longer capable of working alone anymore because she formed a strong bond with Rick and his friends while surviving the zombie apocalypse together.

Added DiffLines:

* This is pretty much the PrimalFear of most protagonists in ''Franchise/SilentHill'' games. Which doesn't help since they're always exploring a desolate ghost town that have non-sentient creatures hiding around every corner with the urge to kill.

* Lucy from ''Manga/FairyTail'' grew up without friends, was neglected by her father, and lost her mother at a young age. She had nobody to talk to throughout most of her childhood except her Celestial spirit [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Aquarius]] who treated her poorly most of the time. One reason why she puts up with the crazy wizards at her guild is because they're the closest friends she's ever had.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'': It's revealed that [[NotSoAboveItAll Seven of Nine]] is absolutely terrified of being alone. Despite being assimilated by [[HiveMind the Borg]], they still acted as a single unit and were always together, but she forms a true significant bond with the Starfleet crew after they released her from the collective and show genuine respect for her. However, when the crew is required to go into stasis for a month and task Seven to take charge of the ship, she nearly [[SanitySlippage loses her mind and hallucinates her greatest fears]] coming after her.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Implied to be the case with Commander Shepard since the soldier has gained allies who're his/her TrueCompanions and the thought of them separating doesn't feel the same. [[spoiler: Taken to a high point when the [[EvilCounterpart Clone Shepard]] envies the commander for having friends who care about their well-being while the clone will never know that joy.]]
