* Vincent van Gogh in ''WesternAnimation/LovingVincent''. The townspeople of Arles consider him a feckless madman and drive him out, while Louise Chevalier outright calls him evil. However, several other people comment on Vincent's loneliness, and he was kind to children and animals, polite to women, and desired to show the world the beauty that he saw around him.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Peter finds a very old winning ticket allowing him to spend the day with OJ Simpson, who is treated by everyone as being a psychopath. Eventually after showing much generosity he wins the town over.... ending the episode by stabbing several people and making his escape.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Bridle Gossip" had the entire ''town'' of Ponyville go into terrified hiding whenever the mysterious cloaked stranger Zecora arrives. Ponies are afraid of her because she looks odd, [[RhymesOnADime talks odd]], acts odd (she paws at the ground every so often, which zebras do in real life to find water [[GeniusBonus but ponies do in real life]] [[CrossCulturalKerfluffle right before they attack a perceived threat]]), and lives alone in the spooky and mysterious [[LostWoods Everfree Forest]] (where the "plants and animals care '''[[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows for themselves]]'''!") Even after Twilight points out that she's a ''zebra'' and not a pony, everyone is still disturbed; they blame Zecora for their being cursed, think she's planning to eat them in stew, and so on. In the end they all go off to find and get her to remove the curse and "rescue" Applebloom whom they believe had been kidnapped by her. Of course it turns out Zecora had nothing to do with their curse-like maladies and was in fact working on a cure for them. Also, she ''would'' probably have interacted with ponies more, except that whenever she went to town the shops would be "mysteriously closed".

** Interestingly one of the examples of Zecora's "oddness" is her tendency to paw at and dig small holes in the ground: a water-finding method which is common amongst real zebras. [[GeniusBonus This is the one aspect of her behavior that's not actually explained in the episode.]]

* Knuckles the Echidna from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. He is openly misunderstood for his solitude and serious personality. However, his intentions are good and he acts in a respectful manner whenever someone doesn't make him angry. He thinks different than the other characters, which leads him to be openly mistaken for {{Jerkass}}, despite him being usually right.

There's also the fact that he's a loner due to his duty, rather by his own choice, and his [[NoSocialSkills poor social skills]] are just a result of having been cut off from civilization for most of his life.
