* In the Third Grade, [[TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool Brittnay Matthews]] had this attitude before Mackenzie saves her from trouble (that the latter caused in order to teach the former how valuble it is to have friends).

** The Eleventh Doctor went into this mode for a while after losing Amy and Rory Pond (who weren't just companions, but actually his in-laws and the only thing close to a family he had left). It takes meeting (and basically falling for) Clara Oswin Oswald in "The Snowmen" to snap him out of it.

* 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.

TheHero really doesn't need other's help and is more {{Badass}} for saying so. These guys are more likely a OneManArmy for their solitude. {{Cowboy Cop}}s and heroes that actually enjoy their solitude count in this type. A form of GoodIsNotNice. ThinkNothingOfIt and DontYouDarePityMe are common. Of course, saying this line can sometimes be TemptingFate, and in this particular instance, the usually competent hero might for once find himself in way over his head, and will, often reluctantly, accept the offer of help.

* In the LegendsOfTomorrow episode [[Recap/LegendsOfTomorrowS2E5Compromised "Compromised"]], Damian Darhk reacts to Eobard Thawne's offer of an [[LegionOfDoom alliance]] with this. Since Darhk is the head of HIVE, a large, international NebulousEvilOrganisation, it rings a little hollow, which Eobard calls him on. [[spoiler: One BreakingSpeech about his future failure later, Darhk agrees to work with Thawne]].

* ''The Infiltrator'' (2016). When the protagonist, a married undercover FBI agent, claims he has a fiancee to get out of sleeping with a prostitute provided by the criminals he's infiltrating, the FBI insist on providing a female agent as the 'fiancee'. He gives this trope, but she turns out to be a natural at undercover work.

* ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' has two characters who play this: [[ActionGirl Molly]] from Season 1, and with [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Jane]] in Season 2. Molly plays this trope fairly conventionally, but in Jane's case, it's a DeconstructedTrope - she's introduced as a cold, pragmatic {{Badass}} just like Molly was, but as she stays and works with the group, [[DefrostingIceQueen she thaws out]] and it becomes apparent that she just holds this trope as her ''modus operandi'' because she's scared of losing people close to her, just like her younger sister, Jaime. With that in mind, it explains why [[spoiler:she pulls this trope straight-up and leaves the group after Sarah is eaten alive.]]
