* 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.

* [[spoiler:[[ShrinkingViolet Arthur Barma]]]] from PandoraHearts was a shy social outcast living in a foreign land after his family was overthrown in his home country, and he was extremely uncomfortable with his friendlessness. He finally made a friend in [[spoiler:Jack Vessalius]], though it turned out that [[spoiler:[[FalseFriend Jack was only using him for what Barma could do for him]].]]

* Penny in ''Webcomic/PennyBlackfeather'' starts out as very lonely. She explicitly calls the Adventurer her only friend (her only human friend who is alive - ItMakesSenseInContext).

* ''[[{{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.

** Fluttershy is subtly implied to be this in a season 6 scene, when she invites [[spoiler:Starlight]] to a picnic only to have her leave early unannounced, and she gets upset.

** [[TheHero Ichigo]] actually believes this was the reason [[spoiler: [[BigBad Aizen]]]] wanted him to become his WorthyOpponent after their final battle, citing the loneliness he felt from their clash as proof. Kubo confirms that the vast power difference between him and his peers made [[spoiler: Aizen]] distrusted in his youth, ostracizing him from others. At the same time, he also [[LackOfEmpathy disregarded]] that he was ''beloved'' as a captain (especially by Hinamori), and he even pitted friends against one another to suit his plans.

His past isolation probably caused that [[LackOfEmpathy]]; he was rendered incapable of connecting with people who weren't his equal in power.

** [[spoiler:Flowey]] is a [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds desperate]] example. [[spoiler: It's up for debate whether it's an overstatement or not, but the Fallen Child was the closest thing Asriel had to a friend and simply cannot let go his memories of him, to the point of projecting the Fallen onto Frisk; he just wants to see his friend again that badly to a degree he tried to invoke the Fallen Child while keeping Frisk in the underground at all cost. This is part of why his Flowey persona is so elated to see Fallen!Frisk at the beginning of the No Mercy route.]]

* ''Manga/Unico'' is full of this. Unico himself is constantly put into new places where he tries to make friends, just to be forced to abandon and forget them later. Most of the people he meets are also this, either by being awkward or even literally the LastOfHisKind. Since Unico is a series full of TearJerker and with a DownerEnding, it's needless to say that both Unico and a lot of the people he befriends [[BreakTheCutie end up all alone in the end]].
