** Lampshaded in "Amending Fences" where Spike points out the irony of this, leading to Twilight discovering that many of her old classmates from Canterlot regularly visit Ponyville. And that they do so because someone else she knew from Canterlot, Lyra, ''moved to Ponyville''. Or that her new friend Pinkie Pie knew her old acquaintance Minuette. She's even called out on her actions of not going to the birthday party of her old best friend Moondancer or even checking in after the first episode, which drove Moondancer to become a recluse. Twilight promises to keep in touch this time.

* The protagonists of ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' almost always spend time only with each other, outside of work and family. Despite the fact that ''friendship'' is part of the title and Twilight Sparkle is studying the phenomenon, she's never shown interest in making any new friends outside of the ones she found (or, rather, got forced upon herself) on the very first day. Of course, Twilight is established as a [[AmbiguousDisorder probably autistic]] shut-in with almost NoSocialSkills who's still got plenty of room for improvement after five seasons of CharacterDevelopment, so it's kind of justified.

* The {{Magical Girl}}s in ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' are close friends -- scarily close. There's only one other girl who they so much as talk to in the average episode, and she turns out to have powers too. They did some good LampshadeHanging about it; in the second episode, Taranee notes that being a new girl in their circle is very uncomfortable, and they get into serious trouble because they never invite anybody else to join them for fun (except the TwentyFourHourPartyPeople).
** Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as they have little time for socialization due their fight for Kandrakar (and its tendence to butt in what social life they still have). Also, Will suffers from trust issues (the reason being evident to anyone who read the comics), and is somewhat of a miracle that she ''has'' a social circle.

** Usagi seemed to have a broader social circle in the first season, especially if you count her family and teacher. Almost all of these characters were reduced to one token appearance per season (if they showed up at all) from season 2 onward, with the senshi hanging out with each other pretty much exclusively. This is reinforced by the fact that almost every episode has them becoming good friends with the VictimOfTheWeek but after the episode ends, said person is never seen or heard from again.

* Averted by ''ComicBook/SpiderManLovesMaryJane'' -- although the story focuses mainly on Mary Jane and her 'inner circle' of close friends, it's often established that Mary Jane herself is a popular and well-liked girl, so we will often see panels of her chatting to her other friends, some of whom (including a goth girl called Jessica) recurringly pop up every so often.

* Any number of superheroes especially in their personal lives. Clark Kent, for example, doesn't seem to have any male friends at all. He's shown occasionally socializing with Jimmy or Ron Troupe, but its not a close association. Everyone else is his various ex girlfriends, relatives, or coworkers. Even as Superman, his only close friends are Batman and Wonder Woman (he's much more formal with pretty much any other hero).
