* The entire reason that Kanna from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' was out of a desire to have friends. All of her classmates (''[[SchoolgirlLesbians especially]]'' [[LovableAlphaBitch Saikawa]]) love her pretty much from the word go, due to a combination of her being [[NormalFishInATinyPond good at everything]] and [[{{Moe}} absolutely adorable]].

** In opposition to the style of the trope type, it did appear that there is lots of work and effort being put into building and strengthing these friendships, since she's not the main character, it's not been focused on though.

* Luffy from ''Anime/OnePiece'' is a walking definition of this trope, able to make friends with even the "Demon Pirate Hunter" Zoro, and Nami, a girl who harbored an intense hatred of pirates due to Arlong's occupation of her home town. Mihawk himself commented about how Luffy has "the most powerful ability of all; the ability to make allies wherever he goes".

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' kicks off with the titular character switching from Type B to Type A. Previously alone and desparate for friends, Iruka's encouragement and Team 7 helps Naruto finally succeed in gaining friends and respect. Often the friendships build slowly, but he is also noted to have the [[ThePowerOfFriendship strange power to quickly become friends with anyone]], [[DefeatMeansFriendship even his enemies]].

* The Doctor from ''Series/DoctorWho'' has elements of this trope. Hundreds of years old, a genius, the last of his race- all of this makes him very isolated. Even when he does get friends, it's inevitable that he'll lose them eventually, either from old age, death, alternate dimensions, mind-wiping or just moving on with their lives or falling in love.
** The fact that he was shown to plead with his ''arch-nemesis'' not to leave him probably shows just how lonely the Doctor really is.

love. The fact that he was shown to plead with his ''arch-nemesis'' not to leave him probably shows just how lonely the Doctor really is.is.
** Said arch-nemesis shares this longing. The Doctor and the Master were once the greatest of friends, but something drove them apart (likely the Master's mounting insanity). The Master spends most of the Twelfth Doctor's tenure executing a plan that spans the entirety of human history in order to give the Doctor a birthday present and bring them back together.
--->'''The Doctor:''' Why are you doing this?!\\
'''The Master:''' I need you to know we're not so different. I need my friend back. Every battle, every war, every invasion, from now on, you decide the outcome. What's the matter, Mr President? Don't you trust yourself?

* This trope is how people get sucked into cults and even terrorist groups. They don't let you in on the really crazy stuff until your entire social circle is comprised of other members. At that point, walking away means abandoning all of your friends. Also, although not necessarily how they suck you in, some people do cite this as a reason for why they're reluctant to leave a more standard church. For many people, the people in their church consists of a large social circle of their friends.

* Played with in ''WebVideo/MajorLeaguePony'', where Twilight desperately wants frineds... not because nopony offers her friendship or considers her their friend, but because she ''rebuffs'' any and all attempts other ponies make to befriend her, while continuing to bemoan her friendless status. Though whether this is do to her having NoSocialSkills, her being a stuck up JerkAss, or both is yet to be made completely clear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/WarbotInAccounting'': For reasons that do not need to be explained, the main character is the most socially awkward and ostracized member of his company. Each attempt to make friends or even get noticed usually ends with soul crushing apathy, with collateral damage being passed off to the co-workers he focuses on. Not helping matters is some kind of {{Glamour}} around Warbot that prevents others from recognizing (A) he's a giant robot and (B) he's a pacifist looking for friends.

** Among the rare exceptions to this is [[CompetitiveMultiplayer team-objective gameplay]], such as {{Capture the Flag}} and Conquest/Domination/etc. Unlike Team Deathmatch, which encourages individual killstreaks, team-objective matches encourage players on the same team to communicate and work together to capture or defend a centralized objective. Examples include ''{{Overwatch}}'', ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'', and ''VideoGame/Battlefield''.

* ''Series/{{NTSFSDSUV}}'': The motive of one villain of the week was that as an InternalAffairs agent, everybody hated her on principle even though she was [[NiceGirl a really nice person]], so she framed the "cool agents" of the NTSF as terrorists so she could befriend someone else.
