Is there any other way to express the same meaning as 'very much a...'?

Hi, Kuen,

Yes, there is. The first paraphrase that comes to mind is the following:

  • He is emphatically a loner.

The adverb "emphatically" has replaced "very much" in "very much a loner."

Could you please give me another example of 'very much' with more context?

Well, let's take this positive example, even if it's a bit old-fashioned:

  • When Rebecca's mother asked her whether her new boyfriend was a gentleman, Rebecca assured her that he was very much a gentleman, that he always opened doors for her and never uttered a distasteful word.
