** Come the 7th Generation of Pokémon comes the little Ghost/Fairy-type Mimikyu, a little mysterious blob of ectoplasm that disguises itself in a 20 year old tattered costume of the SeriesMascot Pikachu, all because it's incredibly lonely and wants to be as loved as the little electric mouse itself. Fans immediately adored the poor little ghost, and pictures of it sitting there just wanting to be loved and accepted have flourished.

Sometimes fictional characters do not so easily get friends handed to them with the plot. They are lonely from the start and desperately looking to make and keep friends. The reasons for their loneliness may vary but in the end a character who really wants friends may either try to go about it in the wrong way, make friends with the wrong people, or secretly angst about it behind a [[StepfordSmiler diffirent facade]]. If they end up successful more often than not these fictional characters will turn out to have been [[BeautifulAllAlong sociable all along]], especially for {{Shrinking Violet}}s, {{Hollywood Nerd}}s, {{Cool Loser}}s etc.

* Not even the Princess of Snark, {{Daria}} Morgendorffer, is wholly immune from this. The "brain" at Lawndale High School, Daria is largely self-sufficent and content to watch and comment from the outside. But at a time when a guy called Tom is straining their friendship, Daria reflects that to be fully functional, she needs ''just enough'' friends. She frets, and is seriously concerned by, the possibility that she has lost her best buddy Jane Lane forever - all over some guy.

* ''[[{{Foundation}} Foundation and Empire]]:'' The Mule goes through childhood and adolescence without ''anyone '''ever''''' liking him "naturally" (as opposed to being forced to do so by his psychic powers). Not until he's well into his twenties does he meet Bayta Darell, who has genuine affection for him (possibly because he's TheWoobie). He's so overwhelmed by the feeling of just being ''liked'' that he [[spoiler: inadvertantly, carelessly, lets her ruin his plans for conquering the Second Foundation]].

* One of the yearnings of the speaker in Music/PoetsOfTheFall's WanderlustSong "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di7NMssrqsE Daze]]," involves expressing envy of the shadows' "constant companions." Since the video has MonsterClown Hamartia as an InteractiveNarrator of sorts, after singing the lyric, he rolls his eyes dismissively by way of commentary.
