** Loki's new MuggleBestFriend is Verity Willis. Loki is Loki, and thus a certifiable jerkass and ConsummateLiar. Verity is a fellow misfit for the opposite reason: she's is a LivingLieDetector with [[BlessedWithSuck no way to switch it off]].

* 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-II. 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.

* In the first ''Literature/{{Harry Potter|and the Philosophers Stone}}'' book, 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.

* Before the main events of TheHungerGames, Katniss's only friend was Gale, unless you counted the sort-of-friendship she had with the mayor's daughter, Madge, as they both were loners at school and therefore got paired up together in activities by default.

** 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.
