* Nigel in ''Webcomic/SchwarzKreuz'' is a [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight perceptive]], nerdy [[HeartwarmingOrphan thirteen years old kid]] who JumpedAtTheCall. He's a huge asset to the team, at the same time being quite nutty.

* The [[UnexplainedRecovery formerly]] late [[BackAlleyDoctor Doctor Hobo]] in VGCats. His speech was an endless stream of word salad, and his behavior ranged from "erratic" to "incomprehensible". He refers to a dead rodent as his cell phone, and seems to have convinced himself that he was a doctor. * The AuthorAvatar of LeastICouldDo's current artist is a fat homeless guy who draws for food. * Melody from SoundsLikeAMelody is a rare webcomcis example of an aversion/sympathetic version. * EverydayHeroes has [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=183046 Scary Mary.]] She is definitely crazy, but has lately shown signs of being on to something. * TheWordWeary features a recurring homeless character named "Robert." Though sometimes the [[http://www.wordwearycomic.com/2011/12/3-december-2011.html butt of jokes]] and occasionally wildly inappropriate, he's treated relatively sympathetically.

* Hasegawa Taizou A.K.A. Madao (which stands for "totally useless middle-aged man" in Japanese) from Manga/{{Gintama}} is a subversion of this, being a lot more sympathetic then your average hobo. While almost everyone treats him like dirt, the only thing he's really inept at is finding and keeping a job and has actually forgone jobs for the sake of doing what's right.

* ''ArakawaUnderTheBridge'' is about the wacky shenanigans of community of homeless people ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin under a bridge in Arakawa]]) who are all... [[CloudCuckooLander unique, in their own ways]].

* The surprisingly good but short-lived American detective drama ''Series/{{Raines}}'' did an episode that actually deconstructed this particular variation of the trope, where the deceased of the case Raines has taken on is a murdered homeless woman, who turns out to have had her identity stolen, among other tragic circumstances. When he talks to his therapist about the case, she notes after noticing his discomfort with the case that many times people aren't "comfortable" thinking of homeless people as real people who are worthy of normal respect and kindness, because they would rather think of themselves as naturally superior than admit that they too might possibly end up in similar dire straits. The show managed to do it without seeming too much like a Very Special Episode... and in that the show still got canned anyway.

* In the ''{{Monk}}'' episode "Mr Monk and the Miracle", three homeless men hire Adrian Monk to find out who killed their friend. They're portrayed pretty sympathetically, and Natalie gets on Adrian's case for his OCD-induced freakouts over their dirtiness. ** They also pay Monk with gravy, because [[RunningGag homeless men make their own homemade gravy]].

* An episode of ''SmallWonder'' featured Foster Brooks as a homeless man who almost takes over the Lawson household. * Exidor, leader of the Friends of Venus and later a [[HarsherInHindsight worshipper of O.J. Simpson,]] on ''MorkAndMindy''. * A ''{{Seinfeld}}'' episode had Kramer try to recruit homeless people to pull rickshaws for a start-up business he and Newman were partnering on. The three candidates they rounded up fit this trope pretty well.

* "Kill Moves" from ''EverybodyHatesChris'', seems to be a classical example of this (plus he knows martial-arts!), until we find out that [[spoiler:he's actually from a rich family, with a high level of inteligence, used to work in a number of qualified jobs until the economy changed, then he saw a vision of [[TheFlintstones Gazoo]] telling him to follow his true calling and become a homeless person.]]

* An episode of ''{{Eagleheart}}'' featured crazy homeless people whom the government wanted to kidnap and experiment on, so that their dreams could be used for fuel, or something. Subverted in that the hobos really were from another planet and the whole thing was just a ride at an amusement park in the vein of Universal Studios' "E.T. Adventure".
