* In the ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' eighth season story "Harmonic Divergence", a rookie Slayer named Soledad insisted on working alone, rejecting Buffy's group, and it was ''a disaster''. She targeted Harmony in the middle of a live broadcast of [[ShowWithinAShow "Harmony Bites"]], and was not only killed and drained (possibly Harmony's crowning moment as a villain, even if it was an accident) and exposed the Slayer Organization to the world in the process. This not gave Harmony's show a huge ratings boost, but enabled Harmony to level a great deal of MaliciousSlander towards them for a while.

* Phoenix Ikki from ''SaintSeiya'' is a textbook case of this. Years after the manga debuted he's still off doing his own thing away.

* A common theme in sports manga/anime is having a very talented player say this repeatedly and refuse to team-work, often to see him/herself forced to when things go hard. Examples are: Kaede Rukawa from SlamDunk; Koujiro Hyuuga, Louis Napoleon and [[spoiler: Natourezza]] from ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa''; Ryoma Echizen and Kaoru Kaidoh (at the beginning) from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis''.

* George Schuyter of MuhyoAndRoji, as a result of [[DeadPartner losing his assistants one after the other]], falls into this to the point at which he actively forbids Muhyo and Roji from participating in the fight against Vector and ''threatens Roji with his sword'' when he arrives.

* In the pilot episode of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Kimblee nearly says this word for word when asked to be a sidekick by [[spoiler:the Freezer Alchemist]], but uses his title instead.

* [[IneffectualLoner Barnaby]] holds this stance for the first third or so of ''TigerAndBunny'', insisting that [[MessianicArchetype Kotetsu]]'s only good for getting in the way and being annoying. He changes his tune completely post-[[DefrostingIceKing defrosting]], to the point that he doesn't see any reason to be a Hero unless Kotetsu's there with him.

->''"Once upon a time, I had somebody that I cared about... It was a partner. Somebody I had to look after. And in this world, that sort of shit's good for one thing: Gettin' you killed. So you know what I did? I wizened the fuck up, and realized it's got to be just me out there."''

* Parodied (like everything else) in ''Series/AngieTribeca'': Angie constantly asserts that she doesn't need help or a partner. Not even when moving a sofa.

* Subverted with the Demon Lords DLC mission of ''VideoGame/DigimonStoryCyberSleuth''. [[VideoGame/DigimonWorldDawnDusk Sayo]] refuses the help of the main character on account of her "pride as a tamer", but Mirei reminds her that there's nothing she ''can'' do; to rescue her partner Dianamon she has to face the BonusBosses of the DLC which she can't do without her partner, forcing her to accept the player's help.
** Invoked for Arata who [[spoiler: goes on the lam after taking blame for the Tokyo blackout]]. Nokia calls him out for trying to look cool, but Yuuko correctly identifies it as [[spoiler: an attempt to protect his friends.]] But when the player meets him again, he admits that [[spoiler: being on the run]] really sucks but is still willing to keep up the act.
