** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', Ron is Harry's only friend. Harry probably isn't Ron's only friend but since it's Harry's story we don't see Ron outside his interactions with Harry (though Harry is pretty much been established as Ron's best/most important friend, since while we don't see the story from Ron's point of view, we do know that Harry spends most of his time with Ron, and hence the logical inference is that Ron also spends most of his time with Harry). Hermione begins the year friendless and isn't friends with Harry and Ron until midway through the book.

* Helena Bertinelli, aka the ComicBook/{{Huntress}}, had only one friend, the ComicBook/BlackCanary. This was primarily because Huntress was a borderline-sociopathic misanthropic loner, so she was an Alice-2. Eventually, Huntress seemed to be forming friendships with a couple of other characters, notably Renee Montoya (the new Question), and Oracle. All this, of course, was in the old DCU; now we're back to Helena Wayne.

* ''Series/{{BronBroen}}'' ends with Saga hurling at [[spoiler: Martin]], "How could you do this? You were the only friend I had!" [[ByTheBookCop It doesn't prevent her from arresting him, though.]]

* In ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', Marcus is basically Jason's only real friend. The only other peer he ever spends any time hanging out alone with is Eileen (on a few rare occasions), and his feelings towards her are so conflicted - partly because she's also an academic rival and partly because he's still convinced GirlsHaveCooties - that it's hard to call it a truly mutual friendship. This is acknowledge at the start of one storyline when Jason is asking his mother to go to a science camp for the summer and says Marcus is going, even calling him his only friend.

* Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy are each other's only friend in ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', as both of them are shunned (but for different reasons: Albus is viewed with suspicion as the only one in the legendary Potter family being sorted into the Slytherin House (all of the other Potter family members are Gryffindor House members) while Scorpius has the baggage of being born into the infamous Death Eater family -- the Malfoy family, in his case).

** 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]] gradually extends to include other people in the know, including Scott's girlfriend Allison, her best friend Lydia, Alpha werewolf Derek, beta Isaac and new student kitsune Kira. Stiles' actor Dylan O'Brien [[{{LampShades}} lampshades]] this trope.

* Deconstructed and ultimately averted with Adrien and Chloe in WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug. Until the series proper, Chloe was Adrien's only friend but it is painfully clear that it's a toxic relationship and it doesn't help that Chloe is incredibly possessive.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "You Have 0 Friends," a kid named Kip Drordy doesn't have any Facebook friends until [[TheSmartGuy Kyle]] friends him out of pity. Kip becomes [[LivingEmotionalCrutch ridiculously attached]] to following Kyle's every post; however, since Facebook is SeriousBusiness, Kyle's "friendship" with an otherwise friendless kid makes people unfriend him until he finally unfriends Kip, leaving him heartbroken. [[spoiler:He gets a happy ending when [[OnlySaneMan Stan]]'s thousands of unwanted Facebook friends are somehow transferred to him]].

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Fenris can tell Hawke they're the only friend he's ever had before the final battle. In practice, he's on fairly friendly terms with most of the party's [[DoesNotLikeMagic non-mages]] (and plays cards with Aveline's husband every week).

In the ''Trespasser'' DLC, he reiterates it, telling the Inquisitor that "you are my dearest, and perhaps only, friend."
