* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Kanna, the Avatar's child, has this trait. As with all the second generation characters, their parents had to hide their kids safely in a PocketDimension, to prevent monsters from killing them. Kanna apparently was hit the hardest by this, as seen at the end of their recruitment chapter. The Avatar doesn't think Kanna is ready for combat, and decides to leave him/her behind after giving them their dragonstone to control their ability to transform into a dragon. Kanna then tearfully begs to join the party (the female version actually starts sobbing wildly), saying they really want to go along with the Avatar, and that they hate continuing to wait while thinking the Avatar may never return. The Avatar apologizes, having had no idea that their child felt this way from the beginning. Kanna then joins the party.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'' gives several examples:
** While Shinji is keeping watch over a comatose Asuka, he thinks he’s alone and he hates it.
** Asuka has been alone since she was three, and she hates it. In chapter 8 she tells Shinji about it:
--->"I don't want to be alone! I don't want to be afraid! I don't want to feel like this! I don't want to be weak! I don't want to cry! I don't want to be hurt!"

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Most of cast has abandonment issues. One of the series' overhanging themes is people are afraid of being alone but they are also afraid of being hurt by others. [[ClassicalAntiHero Shinji]] [[OfficialCouple and]] [[FieryRedhead Asuka]] are especially prone to this behaviour and serve as the series' crown examples. [[AllThereInTheManual According to supplementary material]], the reason that [[spoiler:Asuka returned to the real world along Shinji]] at the end of [[TheMovie End of Evangelion]] was because he needed her above all, even if they had hurt each other.

Characters who have experienced severe isolation, ParentalAbandonment, AllOfTheOtherReindeer, or [[WhoWantsToLiveForever one of the obvious downsides]] to {{immortality}} can often develop into this. [[ShrinkingViolet Shy characters]] can fall victim to this as well. May lead to a case of LonelyTogether, if the character finds nobody but other lonely people for company. It also tends to be a common justification for IJustWantToHaveFriends. Contrast TheHermit or [[IntroversionTropes any introvert]] for that matter.

* Issei of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', most obviously when he can't sleep properly without someone else in the bed. Despite his usual bedmates being his stonking hot [[SheIsTheKing King]] [[LoveInterest Rias]] and hopelessly lovestruck [[TheCutie Asia]], and his status as a LovableSexManiac, this isn't sexual. [[spoiler:Past experiences and deeply-buried but crushing self-worth issues mean waking up alone and thinking he'd dreamed all the girls around him is a terrifying thought he never completely gets over.]]

* The ''Anime/{{Mazinger|Z}}'' saga: ''[[Anime/GreatMazinger Tetsuya Tsurugi]]'' is arrogant, prideful and loud to annoying extremes. This is justified, since he is an orphan, and he thinks people only values him because [[AcePilot his skill to pilot]] [[HumongousMecha Great]] [[SuperRobot Mazinger]]. At the end of the series, when ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]]'' [[TheBusCameBack returns]], he gets incredibly jealous because he thinks everyone will replace him with Kouji and will forget him. And then he would be alone again, and he... can not stand the thought of it.
-->'''Tetsuya:''' All battles I have fought so far… I have fought them to prove the world that I exist!

Added DiffLines:

* Two examples in ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Shinji's greatest desire was finding someone cared for him. He didn't want to be alone ever again.
--->In the end, all I really wanted was someone warm at my side at night. Is that such a terrible thing to wish for? To not be lonely like this, to know that when you go to sleep there will be someone who loves you waiting to smile at you in the morning?
** Asuka hates loneliness. So what if her relationship with Shinji is warping her and slowly turning her into a monster? It's better than being alone.
--->But damn it, it was better to be loved as monster than alone as a human.

* Ryou of ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'' doesn't really recognize she is this in the beginning, thinking her food no longer taste as good was a problem of her cooking skills rather than this trope. She only noticed that in episode 4, when her cousin skipped her weekend visits ans Ryou found her cooking turning bland again.

** The adaption of [[Anime/Persona3TheMovie Persona 3]] follows suit with [[spoiler:the protagonist as well]], although it doesn't become obvious until the 2nd movie.
* The main character in ''Manga/{{Othello}}'' is so afraid of being left without friends that she'll rather spend time with girls who only bully and take advantage of her due to her shy, non-confrontational nature.

* In one ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' storyline, which ran the week before Halloween in 1989, is unique among ''Garfield'' strips in that it is not meant to be humorous. It depicts Garfield awakening in a future in which the house is abandoned and he no longer exists. According to the author Jim Davis:

* England in many fanfictions including (but not limited too) ''Fanfic/FamilyTies'' and ''What a Brother, What a Bother''. This takes his canonical loneliness and wish to be closer to some people (such as America) to a logical conclusion- that he hates perceived abandonment from anyone and truly hates that he's pushed everyone he cares about away.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Its hinted Chandler is this. When Joey moves out he's openly distressed and quickly finds a new roommate despite admitting he can afford his apartment by himself. He also worries that all the other Friends will get married and leave him behind, begging to be allowed to come over for holidays when this happens. This probably stems from his unorthodox and neglectful parents who divorced when he was a child and sent him to boarding school, so the friends were the first stability he'd ever known.
