* The endgame of ''LiveActionTV/DoctorWho'' Series 9 is all about this for the Doctor after he is captured by his enemies and separated from his companion Clara in "Face the Raven". The revival has long established that the Doctor risks becoming a case of BewareTheSuperman if he doesn't have travelling companions; Clara admits that he isn't good at being alone, but orders him not to give up his principles before [[spoiler: she is Killed Off For Real]]. Unfortunately, he spends the entirety of "Heaven Sent" being tormented by unseen enemies, with no one in his giant torture chamber but a deadly monster. This fans the flames of anguish and rage, he fights his way out of the chamber, and in the finale "Hell Bent" he becomes TheUnfettered WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds -- obsessed with a TragicDream of [[spoiler: bringing Clara back from the grave]] and almost destroying the universe in the process of trying to achieve it. When [[spoiler: a now-Only Mostly Dead Clara]] causes him to have a HeelRealization, he ends up losing [[spoiler: not only her but his most important emotional memories of her]], but accepts these losses as a way of atoning for his selfishness. He thus ends Series 9 alone, a sadder and wiser man for his experiences.

* ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' sees its player-character Guardians each as a OneManArmy, so this trope is to be expected. It's required in the campaign, but even in Strikes and Raids, a sufficiently leveled and geared Guardian can overcome the near-impossible odds against raid bosses Atheon, Crota, or Oryx, which are designed to require the teamwork of a full squad.
