** Then there is Amy's brother Peter, who when first introduced is running a failing comic shop in Pennsylvania but still living in his parents' basement. When Amy and Robert marry, Peter is a ManChild living in the basement and the despair of his parents. They take advantage of his staying in New York as an effective BasementDweller first with Robert and Amy, and briefly with Ray and Debra, to clear the basement, emphatically hinting it's time for him to move out. This makes him a problem for the extended Barone family. [[note]]he begins to shape up and accept responsibilities when he takes robert's old apartment. And then he meets the sympathetic Peggy.[[/note]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/TraumaCenter Trauma Team]]'', the victim of the second forensics case, Veronica Cage, was a GenderInverted example of this. When she was alive, she lived with her parents and acted like a typical teenage delinquent, having dropped out of high school and staying out long every night, despite being 23 years old. More shockingly, she was also repeatedly ''beating up her parents!'' [[spoiler:However, the latter is later revealed to have been caused by an AxCrazy-inducing virus, rather than her own volition.]]

* 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.
