** Fluttershy is subtly implied to be this in a season 6 scene, when she invites [[spoiler:Starlight]] to a picnic only to have her leave early unannounced, and she gets upset.

** [[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.

** [[spoiler:Flowey]] is a [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds desperate]] example. [[spoiler: It's up for debate whether it's an overstatement or not, but the Fallen Child was the closest thing Asriel had to a friend and simply cannot let go his memories of him, to the point of projecting the Fallen onto Frisk; he just wants to see his friend again that badly to a degree he tried to invoke the Fallen Child while keeping Frisk in the underground at all cost. This is part of why his Flowey persona is so elated to see Fallen!Frisk at the beginning of the No Mercy route.]]

* ''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]].

* ''KingdomHearts'' has Namine, who was not only born alone, but was captured and locked away by the villainous Organization the moment she came into existence. Her desperate longing for a friend is what fuels most of her actions throughout the series, particularly Chain of Memories.

* ''KingdomHearts'' has Namine, who In the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', Naminé's entire characterization is this. Unlike other [[EmptyShell nobodies]], Naminé was not only born alone, not in Twilight Town, but was captured and locked away by the villainous Organization the moment in Castle Oblivion, before no other people; even having [[DiscOneFinalBoss Xemnas]] greet you after you were born is preferable. Shortly after she came into existence. existence, Organization XIII arrived and, realizing her priceless memory-manipulating powers, basically forced her prisoner to modify the memories of the people who next visit the castle: Sora and the gang. After Sora frees her from them, she's willing to take any job from [[AntiHero DiZ]], however selfish it is.
** Plus, aside from her few outdoor scenes, Naminé is always seen in [[AsceticAesthetic a lonely, completely-white room]] with a large table, chair'''s''', pencils, and drawing papers. [[RoomFullOfCrazy
Her desperate longing finished drawings, which always depict other people, sometime decorate the walls]]. Think about that for a friend is what fuels most of second.
** Plus plus, unlike other major characters, Naminé never forms a bond with other characters [[spoiler: in
her actions throughout entire existence]]. The closest she had to a friendship is with Sora, who [[spoiler: subsequently forgets her (and everyone else in Castle Oblivion) after his memories are restored.]] It's probably why during the series, particularly Chain prologue of Memories.''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', she tries her hardest to reach Roxas without getting caught; she doesn't want to just inform him about [[spoiler: the virtual world]], but to befriend him as well. Finally, when she's finally freed from having to form unhealthy relationship with anyone, [[spoiler: she has to be absorbed to make Kairi whole.]]

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': Sadly, the devil just wants everyone to love him and his games out of free will, so he doesn't have to steal their souls through force. Though he desperately seeks this, he doesn't even know what a friend is (See YMMV).

* ''Literature/{{May Bird}}'' has a dark example with the villain of the story, Bo Cleevil. A being of darkness, he consistently confides in the protagonist that he feels empty and that he plans to conquer Earth and the Ever After so that he'll never feel lonely again. Unfortunately, he'll always be empty because his idea of gaining friends is enslaving all the good people and becoming a celebrity among the bad.

* Itou and Saito of the Shinsengumi in ''Anime/{{Gintama}}'' both wanted friends. Itou suffered years of resentment and jealousy of being TheUnfavourite to his ill brother and desperately wishes for acknowledgement, believing that overthrowing Kondou would be the best way, not realizing that the Shinsengumi already treated him as a friend. Saito was too shy to speak to others and his stoic silence misled others and drove them to paranoia and fear.

** Papyrus is a case of this. He's introduced as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain who's desperate to capture a human (read: the player character) so his mentor Undyne will promote him from a trainee knight to a full-fledged member of her guard... so that the prestige of his position will attract people into befriending him. The only friends he has seem to be Undyne and his older brother Sans, with the rest of his town thinking of him mostly as Undyne's understudy plus something akin to the village idiot. The player can befriend him if they don't kill him at the end of his boss battle, which makes him so happy that not only does he throw his original plan out the window, he goes on to try to hinder Undyne's following attempts to go after the player herself. ([[TheDitz It's the thought that counts.]])
