* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** For all the BrokenBase over the Hush arc, it did a very good job of pointing out that for a supposed loner Batman has a huge surrogate family (from Alfred to the Robins to the JLA to random people from the SilverAge)

* 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 CaptainTsubasa; Ryoma Echizen and Kaoru Kaidoh (at the beginning) from ThePrinceOfTennis.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' books, this is a large part of what helps distinguish the [[LegacyCharacter various]] Green Lanterns of Earth from one another: some of them are far more likely to work with fellow Corpsmen than others, and some are far more willing to serve as the Green Lantern Corps' representative on the ComicBook/JusticeLeague than others. Case in point: John Stewart was a decorated Marine veteran before he got his ring, and Guy Gardner (while something of a hothead) is a former college football player, so neither of them is any stranger to teamwork; by contrast, Hal Jordan is a former test pilot and Air Force ace, and Kyle Rayner is an artist, so both of them are far more likely to work on their own.[[note]] Somewhat amusingly: this may be a prime reason why many casual fans are more aware of John Stewart than Hal Jordan (despite Hal being a much older character), leading to some confusion over why the main character of the ''Film/GreenLantern'' movie adaptation was "a white guy"; John Stewart was selected as the Green Lantern of the popular ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series that many Millennial children grew up with, likely because his personality made him better suited to working as part of a team.[[/note]]

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/CMPunk has a well-known reputation as "stable poison" -- every faction that he has been a part of in the WWE fizzled out with him being the only one to make it out intact. The New Breed, the Straight Edge Society, the New Nexus...it was probably part of why Wrestling/TheShield were never officially connected to him any way.
* Wrestling/RandyOrton is very much the same as Punk, though it's mainly because he's simply too unstable to keep a leash on and has either complete indifference to visceral hatred for just about everybody.

TheHero really doesn't need other's help and is more {{Badass}} for saying so. {{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.
