'''Basic Trope''': What makes a character strong is his friends.
* '''Straight''': With the help of his friends, Bob becomes strong enough to defeat Emperor Evulz.
* '''Exaggerated''': ''Everyone in the world'' is Bob's friend, and together, they all defeated the ultra-powerful, [[EldritchAbomination incomprehensible deity]] to save the universe with a friendship powered ZergRush.
* '''Downplayed''': Bob's friends help him out but he does most of the work.
* '''Justified''': As much as Bob is a powerful hero, Emperor Evulz is two times more powerful than him, and he can't defeat him without their help.
* '''Inverted''':
** Bob's [[EnemiesEqualsGreatness worst enemies and detractors]] are what make him strong enough to defeat Emperor Evulz.
** Bob's [[IWorkAlone solitary nature]] is what makes him strong enough to defeat Evulz because of the ConservationOfNinjutsu principle.
* '''Subverted''': It were to look like that Bob was going to win the battle via the support of his friends, but Evulz counteracts this by blasting Bob with a laser beam...
* '''Double Subverted''':
** ...but Bob was only out for a few minutes. What made him survive the attack is his friends pleading him to get up and finally defeat Emperor Evulz.
** Alternatively, Bob cannot continue the fight after being shot with a laser... So his friends finish it for him, and they take Evulz down ''hard''.
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob and his friends sing an annoying song about how making and having friends is awesome, much to the loners' displeasure.
** Bob and his friends sing about friendship which causes Emperor Evulz to [[VillainousBreakdown have a nervous breakdown while covering his ears]].
** Bob and his friends establish a religion called "Friendshipism", which is based around [[EasyEvangelism persuading loners to become friends]].
** Bob and his friends act like prejudiced, self-righteous jerks who would make others [[LonersAreFreaks feel bad about being loners]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob's friends shift between a BadassCrew and TheLoad depending on the episode.
* '''Averted''': The reliance of friends is never encouraged to resolve a problem; villains or otherwise.
* '''Enforced''': "Let's teach the viewers that friendship is the key to success."
* '''Lampshaded''': "This was a team effort! I didn't win, ''we'' won."
* '''Invoked''':
** Bob and his friends try to win over a loner by saying their friendship speeches.
** Bob tries to persuade a group of [[DividedWeFall disgruntled allies]] to defeat Emperor Evulz together.
* '''Exploited''': Bob uses his friends' support only for the sake of glorifying himself.
* '''Defied''':
** "Friends? Nah! ''[[ItsAllAboutMe I'm]]'' the reason why I'm gonna defeat you, Emperor Evulz!"
** Evulz acknowledges that [[TheTeam a team of heroes is a greater threat]] to his EvilPlan than one hero, so he throws them an AppleOfDiscord.
** "Sorry, [[IWorkAlone I'm a loner]]. I'm not an expert in this friendship thing."
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Implied''': Bob is frequently compared to a hero in the backstory who went out on a similar adventure and failed to defeat their villain. The backstory adventurer is stated to be a loner.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** It turns out Bob ''needs'' his friends to be strong enough to defeat Evulz. Too bad that they're being targeted one by one, and the group is slowly becoming weaker...
** Furthermore, the BigBad is strong [[VillainWithGoodPublicity with the same logic.]]
* '''Reconstructed''': But turns out Bob has learned fight more independently while under his friends' wings. When the time comes, he can fight perfectly well on his own.
