* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge,'' the latest addition to the {{Walkyverse}}, has Joyce, who describes herself as the most-socialized member of her homeschool group. She very much fits the 'fundamentalist' stereotype, though she's also a protagonist and treated sympathetically.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Ghoul children are unable to attend school and as such, any education they receive comes from their families. As a direct result, suspicion of home-schooled children is heavily enforced with [[TheHunter CCG]] actively encouraging people to report home-schooled children to them as potential Ghouls. [[CainAndAbel Touka and Ayato]], Nishiki, and Hinami are shown learning what they could from a combination of second-hand books and lessons from the people around them -- Touka is shown struggling to adapt when she attends a normal High School, while Nishiki does well once he gets into a local University.

* The children on the series ''Promised Land'' were homeschooled by the mother, though not out of personal or religious reasons--the family traveled around the country helping people and therefore never settled anywhere long enough for them to be properly enrolled in school. Once the family permanently settles in a community, this changes.

* Emil from ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' was educated by private tutors and able to tailor his curriculum. Something was quite obviously done wrong, because his grades dramatically dropped when he entered the public school system after his family underwent a RichesToRags episode (Emil blames the school system for this). He also doesn't know any Icelandic, which is supposed to be a mandatory subject for academics in that world. Among the six main characters, Emil comes across as third most educated at best, behind TheMedic (who doesn't have an actual doctorate) and a Finnish desk worker just a couple years older than he is (Finns are supposed to not be that well educated in this world), who both know Icelandic among other things that Emil does not. The three that are less educated than Emil didn't get an academic education to speak of.

* Son Gohan from ''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.

* The children of ''Series/RaisedByWolves'' are all home schooled, though the fact that we never see them being taught anything makes it something of an InformedAttribute.

* 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.
