* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has the "Confidant" system, where every character you get to know over your year in Tokyo gives you cheaper rates at shops, new items, or new abilities in battle, along with the standard ability from previous ''Persona'' games to fuse stronger {{Guardian Entit|y}}ies.

* ''Byron Falls'' from John Wick's ''[[http://johnwickpresents.com/big-book-of-little-games/ Big Book Of Little Games]]'' utilizes it in mechanics - players divide points between their friends - the more points asigned to a person, the stronger is your relationship with them. When you help one of those friends, you use number of dices equal to how many points you spend on them. However, it also [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs the trope]] - you cannot asign the same number of points to two different friends, and if any of them betrays you, they use number of dice equal points you spend on them for all actions against you.
* ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' runs on this and ComingOfAgeStory, with one character achieving something impossible - [[spoiler:since [[EldritchAbomination Actuals]] can't have souls]] - because Chuubo wished for a friend. For Nightmare's Angel/Leonardo/Dulcinea, however it's actually ''inverted'' - one of the character's Empowered Wounds is about ''rejecting'' friendship. This isn't to say that deep down they don't ''want'' it - as [[http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?693038-Chuubo-s-Marvelous-Wish-Granting-Engine-Kickstarter-thread-Double-Plus-Good-Edition&p=16969778#post16969778 one rpgnet poster]] put it: "Yes, she definitely has the I Have No Friends thing, it's even on her character sheet. But, well... it wouldn't be there if she didn't ''care'' about having friends. She doesn't have I Don't Own A Walrus as a source of power, after all." However Leonardo/Dulcinea's unique stew of megalomania and emotional damage means that they're really bad at acting on or expressing it, and as such draw power from loneliness instead.

* ''{{Friends}}'' obviously. Its pretty clear none of the characters would get through any of their problems, without the rest of the gang to support them. This was established from the minute the theme song played:

** In a more mundane example, Rei found in her research that emotional support from friends and family is highly important when dealing with the psychological withdrawal symptoms of the drugs that Doctor Akagi had put her on. And since the only "family" she has is Gendo (the same person who had Ritsuko give her the drugs in the first place), she understandably asks Shinji and Asuka for help instead.
