*** The Forsaken in general don't get along well with the rest of the Horde and are members out of mutual necessity rather than any genuine friendship or respect. The Trolls, Blood Elves, Tauren, and more honorable Orc Clans distrust the Forsaken due to their increasingly [[NotSoDifferent Scourge-like]] behavior, while the villainous Orcs look down on them as being weak and cowardly. But the Horde needs a presence on the Eastern Kingdoms that the Blood Elves aren't strong enough to provide, and the Forsaken need support against the Alliance, so they put up with each other.

But the Horde needs a presence on the Eastern Kingdoms that the Blood Elves aren't strong enough to provide, and the Forsaken need support against the Alliance, so they put up with each other. The Blood Elves get along reasonably well with them, mostly because both factions were the biggest victims of The Lich King.

* Tosahwi in ''ComicBook/DeadlyClass''. As Zenzele puts it, "He hangs out with us almost by default. He has no one else, so he buzzes in our periphery." He's extremely angry and unpleasant and it's not at all exaggerating to say that ''nobody'' likes him, but Helmut can't avoid him because they're roommates, and Zenzele and Quan are Helmut's friends.

* Bobby from ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'' is a goofball, always happy, and not self-conscious in the least. His friends, Max and PJ, who can both be described as serious, angsty, and awkward but to different degrees, are far more likely to be disgusted, confused, and/or mortified by Bobby's behavior than they are to actually appreciate having him around. When they meet another friend in college, Beret Girl, who is also serious and angsty but not awkward, she goes even further, thinking Max and PJ are "cool" and that Bobby is a "fool." Max and PJ are closer to each other than they are to him in both movies. So why is it that they keep him around and treat him like a {{True Companion|s}} in the sequel? Because he's a BunnyEarsLawyer who is good at both rigging stage equipment and playing extreme sports, which helps the other two achieve Max's goals[[note]]Usually PJ's goal is to help Max with his goal[[/note]]. However, Bobby is closer to the two of them in the sequel and while they may be weirded out by his behavior, they do regard him as a good friend.

* [[{{Pyromaniac}} The Pyro]] from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. The rest of his team (which consists of 8 different kinds of {{Badass}} mercenaries) are scared witless of him[[AmbiguousGender (?)]]. They're even hesitant to speak about him.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Nabu, the real ComicBook/DoctorFate, who needs a host for him to inhabit. Nobody really likes him because he's no longer willing to release his hosts; even if they're dead, their souls are trapped in the helmet until he gets a new host. [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] flat out argues for Fate's expulsion from the Justice League at one point, since despite his tactical usefulness, Fate is essentially performing a DemonicPossession on one of their old teammates. Interestingly, Nabu admits that he's mostly hanging out with the League for his own Supervision--his host doesn't trust him, and Nabu apparently feels compelled to prove his trustworthiness.
* ''Metalocalypse'': William Murderface. Despite being the unlikeable sociopath and butt of the joke in the band, Murderface's presence in the group is necessary, as Nathan said that their music sounds too good and too positive, and that's it's missing "something fat and stupid and negativity". Additionally, Nathan mentions later on that he would risk his life to save Murderface in Doomstar Requiem.

* The eponymous character from ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' is the star of the show in his own little town-in-a-box. The people who play his friends and family go out of their way to avoid him [[ItsAllAboutMe and mostly only care about their paycheck]]. In this case it might be less a sign of Truman's personality and more that the "cast" of the show are associated with him because they're actors and not his friends. The only person on set who's implied to genuinely like Truman is his schoolmate, who's been with the show since they were both kids.

* 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 are both scared shitless of her.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':In the episode "Flash and Substance", it's evident that the other [[RoguesGallery Flash villains]] reluctantly tolerate Trickster's presence and have absolutely no respect for him.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':In the episode "Flash and Substance", it's evident that the other [[RoguesGallery Flash villains]] reluctantly tolerate Trickster's presence and have absolutely no respect for him. They seem to associate with him out of Pity; while all the other villains chose their particular jobs, the Trickster is only evil because he's insane and no longer taking his medication.



** It's been noted on more than one occasion that Hank's friends generally only associate with Peggy because she's Hank's wife: Dale once even openly admits that he can't stand her.

** It's been noted on more than one occasion that Hank's friends generally only associate with Peggy because she's Hank's wife: Dale once even openly admits that Dale's made it clear several times he can't stand her.


Added DiffLines:

** Dale is often like this as well; he's an unstable paranoid maniac with a very loose grasp of reality. In spite of this the group tend to hang out with him due to a mixture of Proximity (he lives in their neighborhood), Supervision (Dale is a nutjob with guns but is really only a threat to himself) and Necessity (Dale's lifestyle has given him a very weird collection of skills which the rest of the cast find useful).

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Post HeelFaceTurn, Discord becomes this in season 4. He and Fluttershy are real friends and she's the only one who can rein him in, but the rest of the Mane cast tolerate him at best (par maybe [[FunPersonified Pinkie Pie]], ''sometimes'') having redeemed him solely for Necessity. He doesn't deserve any better, since he still acts like a {{Troll}} around them. As of the season 4 finale, even though it took him a rather harsh way, he's becoming more accepted by the ponies.

** Vegeta falls into this during the Android arc due to most of the cast fearing him (with the exception of Goku, who's [[EasilyForgiven more of the forgiving sort]]) and Bulma who had his baby. Even his son, Trunks, spends about as much time berating him as he did seeking his approval. It's so bad that whenever Vegeta gets hurt, no one is in any hurry to heal him, even when he's demanding it. And when he first went Super Saiyan, the entire main cast all but groaned. After getting beaten unconscious by Cell, Krillin says point-blank that he didn't really care if he dies and is only doing this because Trunks believes in him. Thankfully, he lightens up enough as time goes on.
