* 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).

* ''{{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.

* TamoraPierce's set of four foster siblings refer to themselves as [[Literature/CircleOfMagic a circle]], get annoyed if one of them tries to make a LoveInterest as a part of "the circle," and defensively mention that it's okay to have friends outside of "us."

* Played ridiculously straight on SavedByTheBell. Not only do we rarely see the six main characters interact with other Bayside High students, but they also appear to be the only students in the school that actually do anything. In other words, pretty much every other student on the show is just a LivingProp.

* ''{{Coupling}}''. In the first episode the two main characters have their partner (the other main character), one close friend, and their ex. The two circles combine, giving them each another friend. (When Jeff gets [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute replaced]] by Oliver, he brings in ''his'' ex, but it's still a very small circle.) It's particularly strange in Susan's case because, while Steve and Patrick become good friends, Susan doesn't even ''like'' Jane but they hang together a lot.

* ''BoyMeetsWorld'' had HeterosexualLifePartners Cory and Shawn and Cory's girlfriend Topanga. The later seasons saw the expansion of the social circle when Angela, Jack, and Rachel were added, and Eric went from just being Cory brother to being part of their social circle.

* The four main male characters of ''TheBigBangTheory'' seem to both hang out together and work together (at separate departments in Caltech). But there are occasional glimpses into an expanded social circle, just not one we see on a regular basis like Stuart from the comic book store. Because of the way the show is set up, it often seems like they have ''more'' friends than the supposedly cooler Penny, whose friends seem to mainly consist of TwentyFourHourPartyPeople.
