* Subverted in ''Manga/YuGiOh''. Kaiba isn't friends with Yugi and his crew, but he's not a complete stranger to them either. They don't really like him and the feeling is mutual. However, neither party makes any attempts to keep their distance from one another.

** Jimmy, is this through Necessity. His brains and brilliance make him unpopular with the other kids and he gets little to no empathy from his friends when he's made fun of or bullied.

** In the backstory of ''Literature/HarryPotter'', Peter Pettigrew is at least perceived as this by outsiders. He was the least able and respected of his group of friends. [[spoiler: He eventually turned on them to serve Voldemort, and even worse is that it's clear that the Marauders themselves loved him, to the point where the Potters trusted him with their lives, which just makes his betrayal all the more heartbreaking. For that matter, Pettigrew apparently continues to be this trope amongst the Death Eaters, who don't respect him any more than the Marauders did.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} has Ladonna Compson. She has a tendency to stretch the truth in a way that makes her the least tolerated kid in Arthur's group. There's an episode about this. Ladonna's case is one of proximity, but it never seems to harm anybody in a situation where people are truly stuck with her, such as in class.

** ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'': Leelee initially only hung around to try and get into Nick's pants. However, after TheReveal, they all outright hated her, but were stuck with each other when Leelee was hired at the record store.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': Jar-Jar Binks. Even the people who like him are aware he's a clumsy idiot who is probably going to mess things up. And then there's the Clone Captain assigned as Jar-Jar's bodyguard who finds him completely obnoxious but also useful in a fight, [[ObfuscatingStupidity mistakenly believing that Jar-Jar is doing it on purpose]]. Some fans consider this portrayal as [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap a step up for him]], in spite of it being the exact same as in the films (where he was AnAesop about [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower how even the seemingly useless can be useful]], at least in the first film).

* Vivienne and Solas from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' compete for this title, the former being a snobbish pro-Circle mage openly disdainful of the others and the latter being distant and something of an InsufferableGenius. Notably, during a cutscene where every party member and advisor take part in a friendly game of cards, they are the only two party members absent. (Leliana also doesn't appear, but she at least is good friends with Josephine.)

* Vivienne from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' is a haughty, snobbish, pro-Circle mage. She spends most her time insulting her companions and refuses to show even an ounce of empathy when trouble rears its ugly head. The only people that kind of get along with her are The Iron Bull and Varric (who once again gets along with everybody), who are both scared shitless of her.
