* When Brice is introduced to ''ComicStrip/{{Retail}}'' as the new assistant manager, he immediately criticises the other employees for not following the rules, then says he's not there to make friends. Marla comments he's doing a great job of it. Later, when Stuart says Brice is concerned Marla doesn't like him, she replies "Interesting. He told me on his first day that he wasn't here to make friends. So which is it?"

* Comes up with incredible frequency in ''Series/{{Chopped}}'', with at least one such chef with this attitude in about one-third of the episodes (but, curiously, never more than one at a time). Averted as far as the path this sort of contestant usually takes, as the cocky, competitive-minded chef is more often than not the winner.

* Its sister show ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' has had its fair share too: Episodes about reality television comes up a lot, with the accompanying personalities. In particular, the episode "[[Recap/LittlestPetShop2012S1E21TerriersAndTiaras Terriers & Tiaras]]" is a {{deconstruction}} of this trope: The ShowWithinAShow is ''dominated'' by the StageMom who exhibits this attitude. Blythe enters the competition as the idealistic, friendly sort, but the "I'm Not Here to Make Friends" competitive type rubs onto Blythe due to her constantly being surrounded by them, and by the third act, Blythe's original mindset has completely disappeared.

** The issue is also more complicated than it might appear on the surface: These people who are very serious in gaming competitions usually DO have friends. It's just that these friends were made outside of competitions, and they're not interested in adding any more people to their social circles.

** Ironically, Twilight even says that "the fate of Equestria does not rest on me making friends." Well, guess what? The MadGod Nightmare Moon can only be defeated with the Elements of Harmony...which are powered by friendship.

* 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.
