Case of "soi-même"

Is the use of même optional in the examples given using soi-même?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Expressing 'myself, etc...' with stress pronouns and 'même'"

No, you need "même".

Moi-même
Toi-même
Lui-même/elle-même

Soi-même

Nous-mêmes
Vous-même/vous-mêmes
Eux mêmes/elles-mêmes

Sorry, a mistake: it is, of course, eux-mêmes and NOT ils-mêmes, because you need the stress pronoun. Sorry for that, -- Chris.
