** Deconstructed in the episode "The Waters of Mars", where after having spent too much time traveling without [[MoralityPet companions]], the Doctor goes mad over his inability to change a fixed point in time, and adopts an AGodAmI persona, claiming that since he's the last Time Lord, then the laws of time are his to command. He refers to humans as "little people" and is only [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone brought back]] when a woman whose life he saved committed suicide in order to preserve the timeline.

** Bats has the most extended crime-fighting family in TheDCU, save possibly the ComicBook/TeenTitans. Nightwing, Robin, Oracle, Batgirl, Spoiler, Huntress, Alfred, the Outsiders, etc. And yet he's constantly trying to sell himself as a lone-wolf-type. At least sometimes he says, "I work ''best'' alone."

** When Bond encounters his DistaffCounterpart Wai Lin in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'', he suggests they [[DoubleEntendre hook up]] during their ShowerScene after escaping mooks [[ChainedHeat while chained together]] on a motorbike. She gives this trope and leaves him handcuffed to a pipe. As always, they end up working together anyway.

* 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.
