* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', Cave Johnson once had to use such hobos as test subjects. One of his jokes about them is:
-->Caroline, what do these people buy? Tattered hats? Beard dirt?
** In the DLC ''Perpetual Testing Initiative'', though, there is an universe where Cave Johnson ''is'' such a hobo.
