* True for many people who are naturally shy, or who are perceived as "weird" by most of their peers.
* Some people are just plain [[LeaveMeAlone asocial]] and don't see a point in huge amounts of friends. Some people are more than happy with just one friend.

** Scott and Stiles are the main example: They were [[{{HeterosexualLifePartners}} best friends]] prior to the series and have been since kindergarten according to WordOfGod. As awkward misfits they never had anyone but each other and their actors said the fact they're both missing a parent drew them together even more. Stiles seems perfectly happy with just having Scott and although Scott tries to make more friends, Stiles is [[{{SecretKeeper}} the only one he confides in]] about his werewolf powers and dealing with supernatural issues puts somewhat of a damper on them socializing with other students. Gradually averted as their [[{{TrueCompanions}} circle]] extends to include other people in the know, including Scott's girlfriend Allison, her best friend Lydia, Alpha werewolf Derek and beta Isaac. Stiles actor Dylan O'Brien [[{{LampShades}} lampshades]] this trope.

* In ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'', it can be assumed that this trope applies to Reinhard and Reuenthal, with Kircheis and Mittermeier respectively.

** Reinhard does open up a bit to others as the story goes on, most notably Hilda, Mittermeier and Emil.
