* {{Wrestling/Kane}} and {{Daniel Bryan}} (Hell No) are doing this right now albeit partially zigzagged (I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, etc.)

* ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' both discuss ''and'' deconstruct this trope. [[spoiler:Goku is able to reach Super Saiyan God level by gaining the power of five other Saiyans and he's ''really'' thankful for that. However, Goku is a guy who trains constantly and the fact that he didn't gain this form on his own upsets him because he didn't do it on his own.]]

to:

* Generally this is averted in ''Franchise/DragonBall'', making it an UnbuiltTrope for {{shonen}} series later to come. Although supporting characters can delay or subdue the villain, ultimately Goku is TheOnlyOne who can defeat them for good.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the Tournament of Power enforces this trope: Goku is part of a team of ten fighters ([[DefeatMeansFriendship all of whom are former rivals of his]]), and the tournament rules mean that good teamwork is critical to success. It takes Goku a while to really understand this, and even then his tendency to go it alone puts his team at a disadvantage at several points in the competition.

* The basic premise of ''BlackHoleHigh'' seems to be that, at least within the AppliedPhlebotinum field of the school, character flaws trump physics. In the second episode, it ''makes perfect logical sense'' that realizing that your friends care for you can cure invisibility.

* During the 2016 presidential election, in response to the alleged fearmongering by Donald Trump's presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton's campaign tried to invoke this trope with the slogan "Love trumps hate" as a call for unity. [[AmbiguousSyntax Unfortunately, some people thought this sounded like]] [[LoveToHate "Love Trump's hate"]], i.e. accepting that fearmongering.

* Crucial to the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series. Sora's Keyblade, and indeed all keyblades, seem drawn to individuals with strong hearts and emotions, including -- and especially -- friendship. But magic and normal combat also seems to operate under this trope; DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} and all of Sora's various friends triumph repeatedly through their bonds with each other.

* ''Film/{{Spectre}}'': This is what enables [[Film/JamesBond]] to defeat the BigBad. [[spoiler:While Blofeld may have toadies and lackeys with him that are held in line with fear, 007 is always surrounded by close friends and TrueCompanions such as M, Q, Tanner and Moneypenny who are willing to help him even in dire situations.]]
