Added DiffLines:

* The protagonist of ''Manga/{{Mouse}}'' was one for two reasons: one, his ''very'' old-fashioned family didn't have servants, it had slaves, and even when young [[NiceGuy Sorata]] was freaked out by that, and two; Sorata's...[[PhantomThief hobby]]...and meek personality (as, obviously, he never had to assert himself for any reason) made befriending 'normal' people difficult. Sorata's social skills improved after he became a teacher.

Added DiffLines:

* Pacifica Northwest from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is both a RichBitch and an AlphaBitch, but this seems to be in great part due to her parents (who are way worse in that regard than she is, and that's an accomplishment) actively encouraging her to look down on anyone who is less well-off than she is, as well as pressuring her to be perfect at all times. Judging by how much Pacifica fears them, they might well be outright AbusiveParents as well. While she is popular for her wealth, she does not seem to have any real friends.

* Really, three out of four members of ''Series/GossipGirl'''s [[TrueCompanions Non-Judging Breakfast Club]] could qualify. Nate might be an arguable case, since his mom seems to at least have been the stay-at-home type (even if she's not exactly Mother Of The Year material). But Blair's father left her to move to France with his gay lover and her mother was absent a lot (and when present, drove Blair to an eating disorder). Chuck's father kind of hated him for having [[DeathByChildbirth killed his mother]].

Chuck's father kind of hated him for having [[DeathByChildbirth killed his mother]]. Also Serena and her younger brother Eric. Their father abandoned them when Serena was four and their mother was very frequently away, and dated and got married frequently caring more for her significant others than her children. This trope applies very well with Eric because in a deleted scene from the first season after Eric suicide attempt he tells Serena that he and his mother moved into the Palace hotel while their home was being renovated and he felt really lonely prompting the suicide attempt.

* ''A noticeable shortage of close friends'', for various reasons. They could be a RichBitch or JerkJock, or at least mistaken for one. The character may be leery of friendship overtures because these have turned out to be attempts to take advantage of their wealth. Then there are the rich parents of the rich kid to consider. It could be that parental pressure is toward the character becoming remote and icy because that what worked for them, all that caste and class nonsense. Politician's and tycoon's kids often have anti-kidnapping barriers around them that friendlies have just as hard a time getting through as do the unfriendlies.

* Aversion: Mihama Chiyo out of ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' is shown as by far the richest of the girls, and has other reasons that she'd be isolated ... and is of course one of the happiest and most well-liked of her class. Not insanely happy, but generally {{cheerful|Child}}. Granted, the audience never sees her parents, but they're never implied to be ''gone'', just offscreen.
** Her dad seems to enjoy his life as an extradimensional talking cat secret agent who may or may not be [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s_true_identity.jpg Santa Claus]].
* Extra points for ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka''. Nanako's parents started out poor and nice and became less pleasant as they got rich. The protagonist solves the family problem without bankrupting them, however. With a sledgehammer.

* Hazuki Fujiwara from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi''. Her father was a famous movie director and her mother is a popular fashion designer, but as much as they ''do'' genuinely care for her, they're so absorbed in their work that Hazuki's more usual companions are her landlady and the other Ojamajos.

* Karen of ''Anime/YesPrecure5''. Her parents are always traveling abroad, and she doesn't even get to see them in the ChristmasEpisode, despite that being the only time they come home. She does have one friend, Komachi, but manages to isolate herself anyway by being resolutely determined not to open up to her or anyone else.

* The Ushiromiya cousins from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' mostly avert this: George is a perfectly sociable adult, and Jessica and Battler have plenty of friends − despite a rather tense relationship with their parents, and those parents having issues with their ''own'' father.
