For a more serious treatment of this as a social problem, see {{Hikikomori}}. Not to be confused with MadwomanInTheAttic. Compare TheHermit and TheThingThatWouldNotLeave.

[[SarcasmMode Thank goodness those don't sound like nerd stereotypes]], or [[MostTropersAreYoungNerds we]] could be in real trouble. This trope has become much, '''MUCH''' less stigmatizing in RealLife, however, where the economy has been sending more and more adults back to their parents' homes. [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38364681/ns/business-economy_at_a_crossroads And if this article is any indication, this trope could even become discredited at some point in the future.]]

* TheDCU depicts Superboy Prime-- an alternate universe version of Superman with [[PsychopathicManchild stunted emotional and physical development]]-- as a StrawFan with near unlimited power and no one to oppose him. [[TakeThat He chooses to live in his parent's basement forcing them to cook and clean for him, while he trolls DC Comics message boards.]] He was pretty [[OmnicidalManiac busy]] before, though.

* An irate man is gathering signatures against an upcoming ''Franchise/StarTrek'' marathon on Creator/SciFiChannel, ranting how only losers who live in their mother's basements watch this stuff. The old lady he's talking to suggests her son might be interested. "I'll just get him. He's in the basement." Cue an enormous cosplayer dressed as a Klingon warrior emerging from the basement and knocking the man unconscious.
-->'''Old Lady:''' (in Klingon, subtitled) You do not fight with honor!
-->'''Klingon:''' Aw, Mom!

* Double-subversion on ''Series/GoodEats''. There's a 32-year-old (HollywoodDateless and unemployed) man who's having trouble cooking for himself.

Alton and an assistant by the name of Clarence teach him how to make coffee, bacon, eggs, and hash browns. It's also revealed that his mom still does his laundry.
