* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', this is Firestar's main tactic when meeting new cats. It brings Yellowfang and Longtail around, to the point that they'll risk their lives for him, and although it fails, he even tries it on Tigerstar, Brokenstar, and Scourge.

* In William King's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' SpaceWolf novel ''Wolfblade'', Sven [[AFriendInNeed stays with Ragnar]] while his case is being considered by the Wolf Lords, and fumes about the injustice of its even being considered something to be tried, until Ranek shows up to send him away. Ranek admits the support does him credit, but the Wolf Lords will be angry with him if they discover it.

** In the Pokemon Ranger spinoff games, this also plays a major role: You can only fight your enemies by capturing their pokemon with you capture styler instead of pokeballs, thus [[Narm "conveying your feelings towards them"]], wich is ironic, because it feels alot like brainwashing/mind-control.

** Mega-evolution, a new game mechanic introduced in the gen VI games, seemingly relies on this too: The trainer can only make it's pokemon mega evolve if they trust and are loyal to eachother, not unlike how certain pokemon (such as Golbat, for exemple) need to completely trust their trainer and consider them a loyal friend to evolve. Mega evolution, however, is instantaneous: it doesn't require you to spend any time with you pokemon, ironically.

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and [[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness its sequel]], Shadow Pokémon are Pokémon that have been subjected to a process that strips them of their emotions, leaving behind mindless killing machines. How do you undo this corruption? Simply by spending time with the Pokémon and caring for them.

Sure, the shadow pokemon are more powerful than the normal ones, but it comes at a price: they can't level up, they can't have their moves replaced, they are sometimes known to disobey/attack their trainers and their corrupted state turns them into mindless weapons. How do you undo this corruption? Simply by spending time with the Pokémon and caring for them.

* According to the 11/26 uStream, this along with the fanbase are what's keeping the cast of WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID sane. Compare it to many other SlenderManMythos stories where, for the most part, the protagonists are alone against him.

** Since this trope is part of the premise of the gameplay of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', Zelda develops a habit of randomly turning into Tea from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' and delivering Friendship-speeches. Aside from these speeches, however, the concept works incredibly well for a game series where TheHero usually fights all alone and leads to many heartwarming scenes. The cheesiness of this is rather hilariously [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]: after they fight together to beat [[spoiler:Byrne]] they have a huge celebration for their teamwork...then notice the boss took the opportunity to hobble away in the meantime.

* Invoked in "Duet," the musical episode of ''Series/TheFlash'' with the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UPun57MMoU "Supergirl"]], where the titular character and {{Series/Supergirl}} sing about how, despite being deprived of their respective superpowers, they still have one: their friendship
