* The study group of ''Series/{{Community}}'' are extremely reluctant to let anyone else into their group. Membership of the group is SeriousBusiness, as can be seen in Buddy and Chang's attempts to get in and the group's eventual decision to cast Pearce out. Other students at Greendale have come to grow weary of how everything always ends up being about them.
-->'''Annie (''to Jeff''):''' And who the hell are you always texting?! [[LampshadeHanging Everyone you know is here!]]
** Another episode has the group's unwillingness to allow another person join in even as a lab partner has them called out as a "mean clique".

---> '''Craig''': Was there ever a moment when you guys first came up with the [[SarcasmMode genius plan]] to [[ItMakesSenseInContext become a Peruvian flute band]] that any of you said, 'Hey, you know? This plan might backfire'.
--->(''{{Beat}}'')
---> '''Craig''': No. That never occurred to you. Because you guys are jerks, and you [[AesopAmnesia never learn from your mistakes]], and that's why everyone at school thinks you guys are assholes.
---> '''Kyle''': That's not true. Kids at school like us. [[UnpopularPopularCharacter Don't they]]?
---> '''Stan''': Yeah, dude, kids at school totally like us. Craig is just being a dick because we're having a tough time right now.
---> '''Craig''': ''I'm'' being a dick?
---> '''Stan''': Yes.
---> '''Craig''': You guys took my birthday money, got me arrested and sent to Miami with no way home except to take down the country of Peru, and ''I'm'' being a dick?
---> '''Cartman''': There's no talking to this guy.

* ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume'': Being a DeconstructiveParody of the {{Shonen}} and FightingSeries, once the primary cast is [[DebutQueue introduced]], the only people they seem to encounter besides each other are the customers at their stores. Also justified, because the core cast being {{ArrogantKungFuGuy}}s, they are to mean to have friends.

* ''NeuroticallyYours'' has an extremely limited social circle. Germane claims to have friends but the only people she was ever seen with was her temporary roommate and the creepy pizza guy stalker. Likewise, Foamy the squirrel claims to have a ton of followers but he is only seen hanging out with Germane and two other squirrels named Begley and Pillz-E.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The reason the show has a MinimalistCast is because the characters only ever interact with each other (which can be explained since they live together). Mr. Cat is implied to have other friends, but they are only very rarely mentioned.

** Though it has been shown they have known each other since they were younger. Furthermore, Tucker and Sam stick by Danny as he goes saving the town from various chosts.
* The main characters in WesternAnimation/SouthPark actually ''became'' this over the years. In the beginning of the series, they would frequently interact and play with other kids in the schoolyard. Over the years however, their WeirdnessMagnet has slowly pushed people away. One episode explicitly states that the rest of the kids don't really care for them.

* [[InspectorLynley Inspector Tommy Lynley]] and his partner Sergeant Barbara Havers do spend time with people other than each other, but none of them seem to last more than a few episodes[[note]]Christine Wood, Lynley's LoveInterest in series 5, whom he winds up ditching for Barbara[[/note]], or at most a single series[[note]]Azhar and Haddiyah, Barbara's sort-of LoveInterest and his daughter, in series 2, who regrettably [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse vanish]] after that series' finale[[/note]]. The only characters to not fall victim to this, aside from their police superiors, are Lynley's wife Helen[[note]]who is [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal at the end of series 5, and their reconciliation likely wouldn't have lasted anyway]][[/note]], their coworker DC Winston Nkata[[note]]who first shows up in series 5[[/note]], and the Medical Examiner Stuart Lafferty[[note]]ditto[[/note]]. And even they aren't seen hanging out with the [[OddCouple main duo]] outside of work to any great extent. And finally, they can't be apart for any great length of time. Lynley goes to Cornwall for vacation? Havers goes along. Havers [[spoiler:gets demoted?]] Lynley [[spoiler:[[SubordinateExcuse calls her in on every case he can]]]]. Let's face it; at the end of the day, they just keep coming back to each other.

* Attempted enforcement in the XY arc of ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', as the group of traveling friends is explicitly trying to avoid other people in fear of Team Flare finding and killing them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'', the titular character was under the impression that her Daddy's only friend is Jumbo, though she was eventually forced to acknowledge Yanda. Based on the conversation the three had during the Barbecue chapter, it's clear that they do have other friends and acquaintances, but evidently they're not close enough with those other people to hang out with them.
