** On the flip-side, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is one of the most extroverted villains in all of fiction. He usually has a gang, and a very large one, has a girlfriend in Harley Quinn and is very fond of the VillainTeamUp both with regular Batman rogues and on the grander stage with guys like Comicbook/LexLuthor. Of course, he is a BadBoss to said gang and tends to kill members at random on a whim; his relationship with Harley Quinn is the {{Trope Namer|s}} for MadLove, and though he might like teaming up with other villains, the other villains are afraid to team up ''[[TheDreaded with him]]''. He's not a freaky loner; he's the freak you ''wish'' was a loner, because [[WithFriendsLikeThese with friends like him, who needs enemies.]]

In idealistic works concerning this trope, the AllLovingHero will often affect a HeelFaceTurn on an antagonist by [[BefriendingTheEnemy trying to be their friend.]] Often this will work by itself, hammering home the idea that what's wrong with the villain isn't the need for revenge or a severely unbalanced psyche, it's a lack of friends. Even if The AllLovingHero eventually accepts the Loner ''as'' a Loner, the Loner will often appreciate the effort, and begin [[LonerTurnedFriend making token attempts to be sociable]] with the TrueCompanions.

A loner can also GoMadFromTheIsolation. Humans learn how to be human through social interaction. And there are many social skills that can only be learned in person -- isolation can lead to NoSocialSkills. When you're raised in isolation, you behave differently. Many psychological disorders originate from a deficit in human interaction. Then that person will be shunned, [[LonersWillStayAlone isolating him further in a vicious cycle]], putting him closer to the DespairEventHorizon.....

* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'': When Lucy Camden tells her mother about a girl in Habitat For Humanity who's a loner, Annie actually says she believes nobody really enjoys being "alone," and that there always must be some problem behind it. Sure enough, the withdrawn girl had been molested by her mother's ex-boyfriend.

** Simon tries to help a loner kid at school who threatens to shoot a bunch of bullies because of their teasing. Unsurprisingly, the kid brings a gun to school, but luckily the police arrive at school before anything could happen.
** Almost every character who is single goes from relationship to relationship quickly, presumably because of this trope.

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' meanwhile in contrast to series standard plays it painfully straight with about as much subtlety as a steam-train barreling through ones home. It's made especially apparent with Dagda whose whole OmnicidalNeutral gambit completely revolves around his loner nature.

* ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'': {{Defied|trope}} by Aya. She [[HatesSmallTalk knows she's a misfit]], so what she does is trying to be a [[ShrinkingViolet wallflower]] and try to avoid drawing attention to herself so as to avoid seen as a weirdo. The latter is a bit hard, given she's friends with some of the local ChickMagnets.
