** Luke himself is typically quite abrasive toward his companions (even Ion and Mieu, the only two people who put up with him no matter what he does), refuses to admit that he is wrong or that Van is in any way untrustworthy and is also quite selfish (he wants to save Akzeriuth Van's way because it will make him a hero and because Van promised to take him to Daath).

* Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer had the Scooby Gang and Faith. After her FaceHeelTurn, they give her a WeWereFriendsOnce speech (Buffy and Willow in particular), and yet never seem to realize that their idea of friendship was to lie to her, go behind her back, betray her trust, and most damning of all, let her live in a dump of a motel room that could be (and was) attacked by vampires. And despite all of that, Faith still wanted at least one of them to try and get her to come back.

* Dan in ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' is often this towards Chris. He would often compel Chris into joining him on his vengeance spree and even uses him as bait in a few of them, not to mention how much Dan mistreats Chris. Whenever Chris gets injured, Dan would show little to no concern for him and is sometimes more upset that his scheme failed. There was even an episode where Chris mentioned that Dan used to ''bully'' him in high school even though the two first met and befriended each other in summer camp. Despite all of this, Chris remains loyal to Dan and forces himself to come along with him in his schemes.

Sandi is the AlphaBitch, and Quinn is her BetaBitch...except that she [[TheStarscream wants to move up in the world]], and Sandi knows it, so the two usually act incredibly sweet and polite while trying to backstab each other.

Despite all this, the four ''do'' seem to care about each other on some level: the GrandFinale ends their subplot with the four crying together when [[spoiler:the club is officially disbanded, though with the implication that things between them will remain basically the same]].

* Bloo and Mac from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''. To the point that there are even major inconsistencies in how far their loyalty to each other goes. One suspects that the creators are unsure how far they want to take Bloo's {{Flanderization}}.
* PJ's relationship with Max on ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' can look like this, with Max [[TheDragAlong dragging PJ along with him on basically every plan]], sometimes explicitly not taking "no" for an answer, [[TheCassandra not taking him or his criticisms seriously despite his track record of being right]] and [[NoRespectGuy dragging him down when the plans he criticizes go wrong]], [[ExtremeDoormat using him]], [[NoSympathy not acknowledging it when PJ is upset, and having absolutely no patience and blaming him]] the few times that PJ actually ''does'' appear to do something inconsiderate (which is, by the way, ''never'' his fault). However, Max will also act like a true friend to PJ at other times, and the second episode makes it absolutely clear why PJ has UndyingLoyalty to Max: [[LivingEmotionalCrutch without Max's friendship, he'd be completely miserable]] due to his [[AbusiveParents awful home life]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheHairBearBunch'' episode "No Space Like Home," Bubi tells the inhabitants of the planet Taluria that Hair Bear is their leader so the inhabitants make him ''their'' leader.

* In ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', JimmyNeutron and Carl Wheezer. While his other idiot friend Sheen has some redeeming qualities such as loyalty to his friends and an unselfish relationship with his girlfriend, Carl has none. Even if you ignore the fact that a large amount of Gilliganesque screw ups are due to his stupidity, and how he would hoard food for himself and allow his friends to starve, perhaps the ''biggest'' friend breaker about him is his desire to ''become Jimmy'', steal his life, and how he's in love with ''Jimmy's mother''. To be fair, Jimmy regularly abuses Carl as guinea pig for his (often dangerous and painful) experiments, so it's mutual.
* In ''WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussycats'' Alexandra and Alexander (sometimes Alan as well) got the Pussycats more often in trouble than aided them.
* Henry and June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam''. They constantly argue, and if Henry's in trouble...don't expect June to help.

* Dale Gribble from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', and to a lesser extent Bill Dautrieve. On why Dale is a bad friend... how many times has he sold out his friends for his own gain? How many times has he gotten Hank in trouble, blaming him for a accident when ''he'' caused the problem? Too many times to count.
** They actually do address why Hank is friends with Bill and Dale. The answer actually just comes down to the fact that they are actually insanely loyal to Hank and couldn't really live well without him.
** To be fair Hank does give as good as he gets often forcing his friend to demean themselves or even outright risking their lives for his beliefs. This is the most blatant in "Patch Boomhauer" where Hank spent every second of the episode switching from rubbing the fact that Boomhauer's brother was about to marry the love of his life to believing the absolute worse in him. You have to wonder why Boomhauer didn't punch Hank in the face.
** Peggy Hill occasionally falls under this, but rather the case of "With Wives Like Her." In one episode, she accuses Hank of being a racist just so she can enjoy a DoubleStandard.
** A good example would probably be Hank's Dirty Laundry despite being married to Hank and knowing him since high school not once during the entire episode did Peggy believe that he wouldn't rent porn. She even went so far to say that she was disgusted by his habit. Yet she kept wondering why he would try so hard to prove his innocence.

Not to mention that Moe is constantly hitting on Homer's wife. This is deconstructed in "The Saga of Carl" where Carl betrays the rest of the gang because he felt there was never a real friendship between them.
** Marge sometimes hangs out with local women (Helen, Maude, Edna or others) but all these are On and Off friends at best and frenemies at worst, especially in Helen's case who is often a {{Jerkass}} towards Marge and willing to spread gossip about her. In some episodes Marge explicitly states that she has no friends.

She is often seen hanging out with Lisa, but at other times she teases her along with the other children for her misfortunes or idealistic views.
