* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'' has a number of characters who used to be this trope: [[TheLeader Dart]], who wandered on a mission alone to find and destroy the Black Monster, refused to take companionship because [[ItsPersonal it was a personal mission]] and would be incredibly dangerous. [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Rose]], who wandered the world aimlessly [[spoiler: and was said Black Monster]]. [[BadassPrincess Miranda]] comments that she used to be that way in between the period of her father's death and her adoption by Queen Theresa, wandering the Kashua Glacier all alone.

* ''Literature/TheMartian'' by Andy Weir. Due to a freak accident, Mark Watney is the only person on the entire planet of Mars, and the next expedition is years away. For the first couple of months, it never even occurs to anyone back on Earth that he might still be alive.

* ''Literature/TheMartian'' by Andy Weir. Due to a freak accident, Mark Watney is the only person on the entire planet of Mars, and the next expedition is years away. For the first couple of months, it never even occurs to anyone back on Earth that he might still be alive. His log entries are, largely, almost defiantly upbeat - he nearly kills himself (accidentally) several times, he's facing seemingly impossible odds that he's well equipped to calculate and appreciate, but in spite of it all he mostly keeps working on whatever problem is in front of him because the alternative (running away, screaming at the sky, crying like a baby) would just waste time and, eventually, leave him facing the exact same problem, only probably worse. PlayedForLaughs when [=NASA=] realises he's up there alive, alone, and thinks that everyone thinks he's dead:
-->"He's stuck out there. He thinks he's totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man's psychology?... I wonder what he's thinking right now." (GilliganCut:) "How come Aquaman can control whales? They're mammals! Makes no sense."

** Probably has less to do with being alone, and more to do with the constant "Alone"s popping up and saying alone, over and over

* Because TimeTravel in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is imprecise, [[spoiler: Laurent]] ended up coming back in time three years earlier than the rest of the [[KidFromTheFuture kids from the future]], and spent it hiding in a village, unable to find his friends or go to the Shepherds to warn them about the BadFuture (due to a lack of proof). In his A-support with his father he notes that he thought he would go mad or die alone.
