* Used (word for word) in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. [[DeconstructedTrope Cruelly deconstructed]], because the nature of the delivery [[BrokenPedestal ruins Mr. Incredible's image for his number one fan]], [[LaserGuidedKarma and then he ends up being the downfall of superhero society]] when he is [[WhatTheHellHero held accountable for his careless statements and actions]], [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom and this opens the floodgates for everyone else holding their tongues to rush out into the open with a hateful series of lawsuits across the board to other superheroes whose collateral damage is doing more bad than good and society wants the profession to die out.]] [[AnAesop The lesson here?]] Selfish heroes equal ''[[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped no]]'' heroes.

Cue in audience [[GenreSavvy eyerolling]] as they must now sit through several scenes of Captain Lonerguy [[IneffectualLoner getting his ass handed to him]], only to be rescued by said offerer, just so that he can learn AnAesop about the PowerOfFriendship... or at least strength in numbers. (Even, mind you, if it turns out that he's an InformedLoner -- he actually doesn't seem to be alone a lot).

* Teba in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. After a previous attempt to neutralize [[HumongousMecha Divine Beast Vah Medoh]] resulted in him being the only [[BirdPeople Rito]] warrior alive and uninjured, he immediately starts prepping his bow and arrows for another attack on his own. He's annoyed when Link, a flightless Hylian invited to help by the Rito elder Kaneli, shows up asking for an aerial lift up to the Divine Beast. Only after he tests Link's archery skills and witnesses the latter's BulletTime abilities does he relent.

* 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.
