** {{Jerkass}} Haruhi Suzumiya notes with pride in ''Manga/TheVanishingOfNagatoYukiChan'' that only Kyon speaks to her informally. In the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series proper, Kyon's sister (that's all we know of her name) and Tsuruya are the only persons who are friendly towards Haruhi, without being burdened with Haruhi's secret.

Since she's extremely unsociable and Tsuruya are the only persons who are friendly cold towards Haruhi, without anyone, it's really only Akari and Aika that she can truly call her friends. She insists that they are different from all the other girls, although this is mainly because of her warped perception of the people around her - She thinks she's disliked and envied for being burdened talented, when in reality most people admire her.

* In ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'', Akane was Marika's only friend from pre-k to elementary. Marika was bullied by the other kids growing up for being [[{{transsexual}} too girly]].
* ''Manga/BokuNoHeroAcademia'':
** While his classmates respect him, nobody actually likes Bakugou, except for Kirishima who plays this for him. He is the only one that can handle the boy's explosive behaviour, eventually developing into his MoralityPet.
** A variation happens with Midoriya towards Todoroki. While Todoroki is by no means isolated from the rest of the class, Midoriya is still the one he is closest to, and he rarely ever speaks to other people.
* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'' [[spoiler: season 2 Lelouch has lost his love interest, his sister, his best friend, and has a confusing relationship with the rest of his friends. The only person who truly understands and trusts him is CC. Then she loses all her memories and personality. Because of this Lelouch takes over the pre-episode speech for the next few episodes, and the bitterness and anger in his voice just tells all.]]
* ''Manga/DeathNote'':
** L claims that Light is his "first ever friend". According to WordOfGod, though, he's lying; he knows that even Light isn't really his friend.
** Also, [[ChildhoodFriends Matt and Mello]] play this role (for real) to each other.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':

Granted, after his revival, this is no longer the case as he ends up becoming good friends with the Z-Fighters or at least Goku, Krillin and some of the others.
** Hercule/Mr. Satan tearfully admits that despite his popularity, Fat Buu is his only real friend. He later becomes good friends with the Z-Fighters.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Zeref had [[spoiler:Mavis. She was the only one to ever see beyond his curse and empathize with his pain. After she herself fell under the same curse, she also became the only one that would ever be able to truly relate with him -- it was what ultimately caused their friendship to evolve into love. [[TheLostLenore Mavis's death]] is what drove Zeref over the deep end and finally succumb to being as evil as the rest of the world declared him to be]].

Mugi (Alice-1) and Sumire (Bob-1) literally had no one else except each other growing up, because both of them were home-schooled and heavily sheltered. [[TheDitz Ditzy]] Yui (Alice-1) doesn't seem to have had any other friends before high school except Nodoka (Bob-2), and Mio (Alice-1) was so shy and quiet as a child that only Ritsu (Bob-2) ever managed to break through her shell.

* Koyuki was Ginta's only friend at the beginning of ''Manga/{{MAR}}''. Weirdly enough, it's implied that she's just a friendly classmate in the opening, but as we see more and more flashbacks, it turns out she's been his only friend for a long time.
