* And in {{Sandbox}} areas... "I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to build." But this is often averted; since some Sandbox games like ''SecondLife'' happen to be all about the social aspect. Especially since if you're not there to make friends, good luck finding anyone to let you build on ''their'' land, server, area, whatever.

** {{TCG}}s. "I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to play cards." And in the case of competitive gambling (eg {{poker}}), it's "I'm not here to make friends - I'm here for money." Normally, Slot tournaments avert this, because a lot of the time they're just there to advertise the casino in question and the people who're there are pretty much there to have fun anyways.

* The premiere of the third season of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' introduces two new characters - Subcommnder T'Rul from the Romulan Empire and Michael Eddington of Starfleet Security. When Commander Sisko tries to make introductions to his senior staff, T'Rul cuts him off by stating that she already knows everyone's names and then states specifically "I'm not here to make friends." Eddington then turns around and says that he is there to make friends and introduces himself. [[spoiler: Since he turned out to be a spy for the Maquis resistance movement, making friends was actually part of his mission.]]

An NPR segment (9/12/2009) on this trope shows that studios do [[ManipulativeEditing feed this line]] sometimes. The segment also shows that the person/people who actually use the line ''never win''ónot surprisingly, as it tends to signpost them as arrogant douchebags who, unless they can really win the audience over, will be at risk of being voted off before long. Especially in a social game show, fellow contestants have to ''like'' you, or at least respect you as a WorthyOpponent if you want to actually get further. There is also an implication that the contestant thinks they can win the contest all by themselves... [[LonersAreFreaks and you know what people think of those kinds of folks.]] It's ultimately a redundant and self-destructive attitude since ''everyone'' on the show is there to win; there's nothing to gain in being a {{jerkass}} about it. It goes without saying that these characters are prone to {{CatFight}}s.

** In the premiere of ''The Amazing Race 20'', yet another Rachel (of ''Series/BigBrother'' infamy) gives this line in her opening interview. The same Rachel proceeded to do what she did in ''BigBrother''...that is [[{{Wangst}} cry like a baby]], insult everyone's gameplay, express desire to quit ''nearly every single leg of the race'' because it's "Too hard", yell at Brendon for antagonizing her (The latter of which isn't as unjustifiable given Brendon's personality!), then wonder why [[WhatAnIdiot everybody else can't stand her]]. However, watching her on The Amazing Race 24 (not three years after) wherein she acts much ''much'' different - to the level where one wonders if she secretly hasn't been replaced with her sister - who did ''not'' pull this trope.

* Mars from ''Webcomic/{{Nebula}}'' believes in this, saying that it doesn't matter whether not the planets are friends with each other as long as they can do their jobs and demanding that Earth leave him alone.
