* In Creator/PoulAnderson's "A World Called Maanerek", Torrek is at first horror-struck at Sonna's suggestion that it does not matter that he does not know who his people are, because what is a man without his family and clan -- only later does it calm him.

** The three pilots are the most lonely: Shinji and Asuka have a very hard time socializing or making friends due to lose their mothers and be abandoned by their parents when they were four, [[spoiler:and at the end are the only people left on Earth]]; Rei because she has been raised in isolation [[spoiler:and is the soul of an ancient alien goddess locked inside the teenager cloned body of Shinji's mother.]]

** Played with ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky''. Witches tend to dislike other witches nosing in on their business, and it's repeatedly made clear that witches are not necessarily people people ("among the people, but not of the people"), but it's still important for them to visit each other occasionally to make sure they haven't gone bonkers.

Their internal society is often compared to cats; more a set of individuals that tolerate each others company than an actual group.

* In Creator/GeneStrattonPorter's ''The Song of the Cardinal'', the young cardinal, for all his {{Pride}}, is wistful about a mate.
-->''The Cardinal was left boasting and strutting in the sumac, but in his heart he found it lonesome business. Being the son of a king, he was much too dignified to beg for a mate, and besides, it took all his time to guard the sumac; but his eyes were wide open to all that went on around him, and he envied the blackbird his glossy, devoted little sweetheart, with all his might.

* SherlockHolmes, arguably embodies the [[FriendlessBackground loner]] trope, with the exception of Dr. John Watson. That said, he and Watson were introduced by a mutual acquaintance, and Holmes keeps some measure of contact up with his brother. Also, not a lot of police officers seem to like him.
* Dupin and his anonymous narrator in the works of Creator/EdgarAllanPoe are even more isolated than SherlockHolmes and Watson although they still retain certain contacts in the police that allow them to carry out their amateur detective work.

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, isolating him further in a vicious cycle, putting him closer to the DespairEventHorizon.....

There are exceptions, as with all other tropes: [[TheHermit the crusty old hermit]] or WitchDoctor who rebuffs the villains and helps out the heroes is a fairly popular stock character. And both of those are frequently portrayed at the very least as eccentric. The MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold is a subversion. TheSnarkKnight [[GenreSavvy deliberately]] seeks to defy this trope.
