* Jessie from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' was a foster child due to her mother Miyamoto [[GiveHimANormalLife wanting her to have a normal life]] while she made enough money in Team Rocket to support her. Jessie's life as a foster kid wasn't particularly remarkable but it wasn't bad either, [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood just pitiful like the rest of her youth]].

* Dee's love interest, James, in ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'', entered foster care at a young age, and aged out without being adopted. He's relatively well-adjusted, all things considered, but his lack of a real support system lays the groundwork for his role in the plot.

* In ''The Outside'', Ryuuko eventually ends up as a foster kid when she's subsequently removed from her sister's care and placed in a group home while social services look for her mother. The place isn't really bad and the kids there are taken care of but Ryuuko obviously doesn't like it there and would much prefer to be with her sister.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' fanfic ''FanFic/PrisonIslandBreak,'' Shadow is revealed to have been a Foster child, having gone through multiple care homes, the final Foster home resulting in him being sexually abused.
* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' series [[http://archiveofourown.org/series/82162 Stars from Home]] has Ororo in this situation, while Scott is HappilyAdopted, both with [[GoodParents Charles and Ruth]]. They're treated the same and refer to each other as [[LikeBrotherAndSister brother and sister]].

\n[[AC:Fanfiction]]\n* ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'':
** The comic changes the backstories of the Starlight Girls from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' cartoon. They're all DemotedToExtra and it's never specified if they're foster kids, or not. They are just a group of kids who hang around the local community service building.
** It's never clarified if Aja and Shana were formally adopted or not, however they are presumably still the foster kids of the Benton parents. Unlike in the cartoon, they're the ''only'' foster kids. They were fostered at a younger age than in the cartoon and thus grew up with the Bentons from a young age. Jerrica, Kimber, Aja, and Shana are explicitly referred to as siblings in the comic (while the cartoon instead portrayed them as close friends).

Added DiffLines:

* The 1980s cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has Starlight House as a rare positive example of a foster home. The Benton parents decided to foster girls after having two biological children of their own because Jacque had been a foster child. Aja and Shana, the first two foster kids, grew up alongside Jerrica and Kimber and as a result they're all very close. After both parents died, the Benton sisters decided to take over the foster home. The seldom seen Ms. Bailey apparently takes care of the girls while the band is out touring.

to:

* ''Series/WynonnaEarp'' includes Wynonna bouncing around the foster care system as part of her backstory. Especially notable since her younger sister Waverly was decidedly ''not'' this trope--Waverly was raised by loving [[HonoraryUncle family friends]] after Ward Earp's death. Presumably they couldn't handle Wynonna's troublemaking ways.
