** In ''BigBrother'', if the other houseguests don't like you for whatever reason, you can expect to face the public vote. This often leads to an UnpopularPopularCharacter, adored by the audience but disliked by their fellow players.

** The penultimate arc dealt with the "theft" of the heroes' Friendship Power with a number of cursed dolls. This resulted in everyone abandoning our hero when he needed a partner for the tag-team TournamentArc. Thankfully, he manages to get some help from his unaffected ObiWan.

** The ''Tales'' series as a whole began using this from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' onwards; focusing its storylines around how friendship can fix anything ([[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces even a]] HeelFaceTurn via DemonicPossession [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality can be fixed by believing in friendship enough]]). Considering that their stories ''used'' to deal with more "mature" issues like [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia free will]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss cloning]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia rac]][[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth ism]], this shift in tone is something of a BaseBreaker. To clarify: while previous games in the series ''did'' use ThePowerOfFriendship, it was only ever brought up as part of the obligatory {{World Of Cardboard Speech}}es; not ''the'' core plot element.

* Gets {{Deconstructed}}, {{Reconstructed}}, and {{Deconstructed}} ''[[ZigZaggedTrope again]]'' in [[FanFic/APikachuInLove A Pikachu in Love]]. Pikachu spends most of the fic questioning just how strong his bond with Ash really is, how long it would ''honestly'' last, and does consider leaving him at a few points to stay with Pichi, who he could have a full relationship with due to both of them being Pokemon. [[spoiler: Gets Reconstructed in that Pikachu eventually realizes just how much Ash and Co. really love him, and feels ashamed of himself for thinking Ash would forget about and leave him behind one day. It then gets deconstructed again in that it's his friendship with them that forces him to leave Pichi for a final time, and just [[TearJerker after she had confessed her love for him in hopes he would stay with her...]]]]

* Gets {{Deconstructed}}, {{Reconstructed}}, In ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'' the only reason Shinji and {{Deconstructed}} ''[[ZigZaggedTrope again]]'' Asuka were able to [[spoiler: perform a joint synchronization with Unit-03 was because they were friends with Hikari and she had been absorbed during the previous angel attack. Said friendship also managed to get her out of the Eva when the battle was over.]]

** Tea/Anzu displayed this so much (at one point even saying "the power of friendship") that it became a running gag in the Abridged Series. Joey recovered from being ''struck by lightning'' because of friendship.

* The Gatsby Sandwich, which is a local favourite of Cape Town, is rumored to taste better when shared among friends. There is a grain of truth to this as it was originally invented by factory workers who would share their lunches together into a single sandwich, as they each had little. Thus every other person who joined in added a bit more to a sandwich that would become far greater than the sum of it's parts.

*** There's a joke that the "f" added to ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' for its PlayStation3 UpdatedRerelease stands for "friendship" because this trope is pretty much the key theme of the game.
