** [[TheLancer Zoro]] counts as well. Though he did have two fellow bounty hunting friends (Johnny and Yosaku) back when he was one himself, he traveled alone, didn't seem to have any close relationships (nor did he appear to want any), and was feared and avoided by the general public due to his reputation as a "demon." Then [[MagneticHero Luffy]] came along and saved him from execution, and Zoro not only warmed up to him very quickly, but became his loyal NumberTwo, as well as a protector to the new crewmates they recruited afterwards.

* The Ice King from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' was a bit of a loner due to him being ruler of Ice Kingdom, which is uninhabited despite having ice creatures to keep himself company. He soon warms up when he makes friends with Finn and Jake.

* The Ice King from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' was a bit of a loner due to him being ruler of Ice Kingdom, which is uninhabited despite having semi-sapient penguins and ice creatures to keep himself company. In fact, early seasons have him as the main antagonist before bigger, more credible threats appear. He soon warms up when he makes friends with Finn and Jake.Jake, especially after they learn of his tragic, tortured origins.

* Yukiteru Amano from ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' started as a loner in school due to his anti-social personality, but he does try to get better in making friends. Unfortunately for him, Yuno doesn't want anyone closer to him. Eventually he manages to make a small group of friends with his classmates, but later on he [[spoiler:kills his friends in his quest for Godhood]]. He was a freaky loner who got better, but it was too late for entirely other reasons.

So you got yourself a character in a series who's a bit of a [[IneffectualLoner lone wolf]]. They fight (and even win) their own battles, they [[IWorkAlone reject being a part of the hero's group]], and they may even [[HatesSmallTalk rebuff their friendliness]]. More importantly, they may even [[TheHermit enjoy being by themselves]] [[LonersAreFreaks no matter what society tells they otherwise]]. And later on in the series, the character is now the [[SixthRanger newest member]] of the band of friends. How so? There could be two common reasons for this sudden CharacterDevelopment. One, it could be that they got tired of being alone for a very long time considering that there are [[GoMadFromTheIsolation heavy consequences of being a loner for too long]]. They may have realized they'e[[IJustWantToHaveFriends long for companionship after all]], despite being [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer unfairly mistreated for being different]]. Another could be that they may have been inspired by the AllLovingHero's heartwarming speech about ThePowerOfFriendship or that the character learns AnAesop about accepting others' friendships [[LeaveMeAlone even if they were initially dismissive of them]]. Sometimes, this trope can play the character in two ways. One, they still retain their [[AloofAlly introverted characteristics]], but is still considered a loyal teammate/friend to the group. Two, they are a permanent member of the team and show no hint of introversion.

** Miranda in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' is extremely goal-focused and doesn't like to waste time with frivolous socialization, but Shepard can [[DefrostingIceQueen defrost her icy demeanor]], and she's a {{Love Interest}} for male Shepard. By ''3'', while still goal-focused ([[BigSisterInstinct) for understandable reasons]]), she has become one of the nicest people in the game.
