** 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.

* ''{{Friends}}'' is probably the most obvious example; the six friends barely seem to know anybody other than their families and each other. And their GirlOfTheWeek, of course.

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' had the same scenario as ''{{Friends}}''. There was nobody outside the foursome whom they could stand -- outsiders were either the GirlOfTheWeek, [[{{Recurrer}} recurring irritants]] like Newman and Peterman, or the MeddlingParents.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and her {{sidekick}} Ron are close friends since pre-school, but outside of each other they only have one close friend each (Monique for Kim, Felix for Ron) both of whom they meet during the series. Ron is established to be something at the bottom of the school "food chain", but Kim is established as quite friendly with everybody. However, despite being a [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders cheerleader]] and A grade student, most of her interactions with the rest of the school are very much in the tone of an isolated leader (as captain of the cheer squad, and a thousand other commitments), as her [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld continuously saving the world]] leaves her little time for the rest.

** Carly seems to be the conencting point as Sam and Freddie do not like each other that much. With Sam, her lack of friends is probably due to her unruly behaivor and Carly being one of the few good things in life while Freddie has nursed a crush on Carly for a long while, though Freddie does seem to have friends outside of iCarly.

** Juliet herself has at multiple tiems tried to expand her social circle, especiall in regards to having female friends. As for Shawn himself, while he does know and itneract friendily with a fair bit of people, Gus remains his one true close friend (Henry himself remarks Gus was one of the few constants in Shawn's life.)

* ''Series/TheInbetweeners'': The four main characters generally don't have any lasting lasting friends outside of their core group due to their overall lack of popularity. When it looks like Jay has made a friend outside the group, the other three immediately mock him.

* 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.

* ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' is a rare example of this trope being played in a [[TruthInTelevision realistic manner]]. Both the Freaks and the Geeks are very close-knit but also regularly interact and have casual friendships with other McKinley High students (the most prominent examples being Harris Trinsky and, in the later episodes, Gordon Crisp).
