* Son Gohan from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', due to living in an isolated mountain clearing; when he chooses to go to a formal high school, he has to fly to the nearest city every day. He fits the stereotype of being incredibly sheltered, to the point that he doesn't seem to understand that baseline human teens can't jump twenty feet in the air unassisted, but he's kind and friendly enough that people are mostly willing to overlook his oddities.

* Alex from the OEL ''Manga/{{Nightschool}}'' is homeschooled by her older sister, [[PromotionToParent Sarah]], for [[DarkAndTroubledPast very good reason]]. Sarah frequently tries to convince Alex to enroll in the titular [[AllGhoulsSchool nightschool]] so she can socialize with kids her age, though.

Truth be told, the majority of homeschooled children are no different from those who attend public and private schools. And while some are pulled from other schools due to disabilities, a good number of their parents simply think their educational needs will be better met at home. Homeschooling can come in many forms, from literally being taught by a parent to a co-op that hires teachers for their kids.

Truth be told, the majority of homeschooled children are (at least for the most part) typically no different from than those who attend go to regular schools such as public and schools or private schools. And while some are pulled from other schools due to things like disabilities, a good number of their parents simply think feel that their educational needs will be better met at home.

* Aiden and Michelle, the fraternal twin children of Ash and Misty in Pokémon-fanfiction stories by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2086119/nyislandersgirl nyislandersgirl]], were homeschooled up until they finally became Pokémon trainers. Ash and Misty decided on this because Michelle is pretty advanced for her age and Aiden, though certainly more intelligent than their dad when he was their age, tended to struggle with things like schoolwork.
** Aiden and Michelle's younger sister, Elizabeth, on the other hand, ended up going to a regular school instead of being homeschooled like her siblings--specifically, she went to a special private school for children who planned on becoming Pokémon trainers once they turned ten.

* WordOfGod describes ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'''s title character as homeschooled, but it's a bit of an odd example--the Crystal Gems don't seem to know what "school" ''is,'' and just kind of teach [[TagalongKid Steven]] informally. While [[AllLovingHero ridiculously friendly]], he's not really overly-sheltered, since we see him interact with the local kids all the time. In one of the comics, he tags along with [[MuggleBestFriend Connie]] for a day at her school. [[spoiler:Turns out he's educated way above his grade level, getting a nearly perfect test score.]]

In "Mirror Gem", when Connie tells Steven about school as she goes on summer vacation, Pearl is thrilled to teach Steven, and gives him a gem-powered mirror with a broken gem, which is supposed to show Steven everything he needs to know about Gem culture; afterwareds, Pearl decides to end the lesson, and Steven asks Pearl if it could also be said that school's out for the summer, and Pearl agrees, giving Steven his summer vacation.

* A downplayed example in ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' -- in "No Place Like Homeschool," it turns out that in order for Lola to have more time to get ready for her beauty pageants, Lola's homeschooled during the main competition season, hence why previous episodes showed her attending a regular elementary with Lincoln, Lucy, Lana and Lisa. And as it would seem, her parents are pretty strict about her schoolwork during the time that she's homeschooled, because if she ends up failing so much as one test, she has to go back to attending a regular school, pageant season or not, as punishment.

Jenny goes with it, thinking she won't have to do any work, but it turns out that Wakeman has a classroom set up for her and she has even more work to do as usual. She ends up missing her friends and goes back to Tremorton High.

* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'': Tim Drake's best (civilian) friend Ives started being home schooled shortly after Tim was forced to transfer to a boarding school since he picked up lime disease and was also incredibly bored and unchallenged with the curriculum at the public school he had been attending. When his mother forces him to take an equivalency exam so he can re-enter the Gotham public school system he doesn't miss a single question and notes how ridiculously easy it is.
