** [[TheHero Ichigo]] actually believes this was the reason [[spoiler: [[BigBad Aizen]]]] wanted him to become his WorthyOpponent after their final battle, citing the loneliness he felt from their clash as proof. Kubo confirms that the vast power difference between him and his peers made [[spoiler: Aizen]] distrusted in his youth, ostracizing him from others. At the same time, he also [[LackOfEmpathy disregarded]] that he was ''beloved'' as a captain (especially by Hinamori), and he even pitted friends against one another to suit his plans. His past isolation probably caused that [[LackOfEmpathy]]; he was rendered incapable of connecting with people who weren't his equal in power.

* ''Manga/{{Unico'}}' is full of this. Unico himself is constantly put into new places where he tries to make friends, just to be forced to abandon and forget them later. Most of the people he meets are also this, either by being awkward or even literally the LastOfHisKind. Since Unico is a series full of TearJerker and with a DownerEnding, it's needless to say that both Unico and a lot of the people he befriends [[BreakTheCutie end up all alone in the end]].

* Jack Frost from ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' has this combined with IJustWantToBeLoved as his primary motivation throughout the film, culminating in "I Just Want To Be Believed In", since Guardians can only be seen by and interact with humans who believe in their existence, leaving Jack pretty much friendless as a result for roughly 300 years. The catch is actually proving his existence while being completely invisible, inaudible, and intangible to {{Muggles}}.

* In the VisualNovel ''KatawaShoujo'' [[spoiler:This is revealed to be major motivation for Shizune late in her path. Due to a combination of her deafness and her [[AbusiveParents upbringing]], she found it very hard to make friends and form relationships with others, resulting in her becoming a LonelyRichKid. When she came to Yamaku, she turned her efforts towards making other people happy in the hopes that would make them like her, which is the main reason why she joined the Student Council. However her drive combined with her [[SpiritedCompetitor competitiveness]] eventually caused her to drive nearly everyone else in the Council away except for her only friend and interpretor, Misha.]]

* This seems to apply to half the population of ''VideoGame/StardewValley.'' Befriending and romancing the locals is a major part of the game.

* The Water-type starter Oshawott from the 5th Generation Pokémon games has been the target of this (though it's starting to turn around) on a certain ImageBoard, with pictures ranging from the other two starters trolling him into thinking he's unliked to him being the last one to be picked (a fairly long time after the others)... by a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming trainer who likes and wears blue as well and asks him to be his friend.]]

** Come the 7th Generation of Pokémon comes the little Ghost/Fairy-type Mimikyu, a little mysterious blob of ectoplasm that disguises itself in a 20 year old tattered costume of the SeriesMascot Pikachu, all because it's incredibly lonely and wants to be as loved as the little electric mouse itself. Fans immediately adored the poor little ghost, and pictures of it sitting there just wanting to be loved and accepted have flourished.

Sometimes fictional characters do not so easily get friends handed to them with the plot. They are lonely from the start and desperately looking to make and keep friends. The reasons for their loneliness may vary but in the end a character who really wants friends may either try to go about it in the wrong way, make friends with the wrong people, or secretly angst about it behind a [[StepfordSmiler diffirent facade]]. If they end up successful more often than not these fictional characters will turn out to have been [[BeautifulAllAlong sociable all along]], especially for {{Shrinking Violet}}s, {{Hollywood Nerd}}s, {{Cool Loser}}s etc.

* Gohan in ''DragonballZ''. He spent much of his childhood being home-schooled, and mostly interacted with people his parents knew. In his first day of high school, he got friends very easily and some dates.
