* The climax of ''{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' has [[spoiler:literary hobos]] after Montag [[spoiler:escapes the Mechanical Hound by jumping in a river]]. It is later revealed that these are all [[spoiler:former English professors and stuff; they're keeping the books in their heads until contemporary society crumbles]].
* In John Hodgman's ''TheAreasOfMyExpertise'', he gives a detailed history of the Hobo Conspiracy, including how a hobo (Hobo Joe Junkpan) once became Secretary of the Treasury and then gives 700 Hobo names (and 100 more in the paperback version). He does, however, make a point of distinguishing between normal homeless people and hobos (it's a lifestyle choice).

* The main character of ''TheJungle'' becomes one by the end of the book, leading a happy life free of corrupting capitalism. Sinclair was known to bemoan the fact that people missed that this was the point of the book, not the meat factories.

* In the closing section of ''Film/PulpFiction'', Jules declares his intention to quit his job as a hitman, leave UsefulNotes/LosAngeles and "[[WalkingTheEarth walk the earth]]" in the style of Caine from ''KungFu''. His partner, Vincent, responds that he would be nothing more than a bum. [[spoiler: Better a live bum than getting shot up in the toilet.]]

* ''Film/WildBoysOfTheRoad'': Lacking any better options, Eddie and Tommy start riding the rails, looking for work. It is a bad, bad life, nowhere near as romantic as it is often portrayed in other works. Hunger and fear plague the children as they travel across America. One child is sickened on the train by eating rotten food. Another is raped.

* The homeless are... interesting in [[VideoGame/RyuGaGotoku Yakuza]]. They seem to be considered relatively noble, with a tight-knit community and [[spoiler: pretty much act as a secret army for the information dealer Kage the Florist.]]
