* ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} definitely fell under this in his early years, along with a hefty dose of AllOfTheOtherReindeer. DependingOnTheWriter, it's deliberately ambiguous how much of this was genuinely because of bullies like Flash and how much of it was in his own head.

* In ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInThe8thGrade'', [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Linda]] and Lena are Stanhope School's pariahs. Linda doesn't like being shunned but Lena is an unhinged narcissist who is perfectly happy to give everybody else the cold shoulder.

* Yukiteru Amano of ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' is very much a loner at school, due to his own reclusive and anti-social personality. The other kids consider him to be a freak. He does grow out of it later on and [[LonerTurnedFriend gains a small circle of friends]] after deciding he never liked being alone, but unfortunately for him, [[{{Yandere}} Yuno Gasai]] considers herself the only friend he ''needs''.

* ''Literature/SmallerAndSmallerCircles'': When Jerome, Saenz, and the local authorities begin looking into the backgrounds of possible suspects, they initially dig up very little on Alex Carlos, the resident community dentist. All they know of him at first is that he is single, works efficiently and keeps to himself (even EatingLunchAlone). [[spoiler:He eventually confirms the investigators' suspicions.]]

** 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...]]

Of course, this trope could just be the inversion of the idea that nobody could like a freak, so freaks are loners. This doesn't logically translate to ''all'' loners are freaks, but [[LogicalFallacies a lot of fiction doesn't follow logic]].

** Mycroft Holmes is a much more standard example. Whereas Sherlock can form some close friendships and be personable when necessary, Mycroft lives alone, works alone and spends his free time at a gentleman's club where so much as acknowledging the existence of another member puts you at risk of expulsion.

* As a result of [[GenreSavvy his father's training]], [[Series/{{Dexter}} Dexter Morgan]] is aware of this, and goes out of his way to cultivate a "reserved but sociable" persona to keep from being thought of as an emotionally withdrawn loner. It works on everyone but [[OnlySaneMan Sgt. Doakes]].
