* 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).

* 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.

* In ''Theatre/{{Chess}}'', Florence is Freddie's only friend, although by the end of the first act even she has gotten fed up with his {{Jerkass}} behavior and left him. (Which, given what we see of their interactions, is less surprising than the fact that [[NoAccountingForTaste she was with him in the first place]].)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars'', Bill comes to consider [[spoiler: Steven]] this, since he overall thinks [[spoiler: Kryptos and Hectorgon]] only befriended him out of pity, and the rest only see him as a boss.

* ''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]].

* In ''TokimekiMemorial 2'', [[BrokenBird Kaori Yae]] starts this way, with Kaedeko Sakura being her only friend. That's because Kaori is hugely distrustful of others [[DarkAndTroubledPast due to a traumatic past experience]], and Kaedeko is the only person she feels innocent, straight and honest. By the end of her storyline, [[ShesBack when she'll solve her personal turmoils]], the male protagonist will be her other close friend and lover, and she'll have made a few other friends along the way.

* Paris Gellar of ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' considers Rory this. She's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but Rory is the only person who has the patience to sit through the "Jerk" side. According to Paris, everyone else leaves the room when she talks.

According to Paris, everyone else leaves the room when she talks. However in high school Paris always hangs out with [[GirlPosse two girls]], even before befriending Rory, so this mostly applies when they are in college.

Compare with LivingEmotionalCrutch, which might be at play in an extreme form of this trope.

trope. Compare BestFriend, where a character has other friends, but one of them is the closest and most trusted.
