* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Lapis Lazuli was this when she was living in the barn before she started gardening; while Peridot would at least go on missions with the other Crystal Gems, Lapis preferred to lounge around while either watching Camp Pining Hearts, sleeping, or reading. [[spoiler:She returns to this lifestyle when she leaves the Earth and takes the entire barn with her.]]
** PlayedForDrama with Blue Diamond; while she is one of distinguished Gems that command everything on Homeworld and other Gem-controlled planets, she may as well ''be'' one of these thanks to her ExcessiveMourning and perpetual depression over Pink Diamond's death.

In most stories featuring this trope, the NEET is the designated ButtMonkey, treated with NoSympathy. The DeadpanSnarker will take every opportunity to remind him that he's useless, while more sentimental characters would, at best, try to motivate him to get a life with a RousingSpeech. Anything else, such as treating his situation as a symptom of a systemic problem of modern society, is uncommon enough to be considered a subversion. Regardless, it must be noted that the [[BurgerFool modern]] [[SoulSuckingRetailJob unfortunate]] [[JobStealingRobot conditions]] at the job market in many developed countries mean that the unemployed gradually undergo a shift from AcceptableLifestyleTargets to [[DudeNotFunny being considered genuinely unfortunate]]. Thus, in order to actually deserve mockery, a NEET in modern media is often given other negative qualities such as [[GuysAreSlobs being a slob]].

PrettyFreeloaders generally manage to dodge this stigma on the account of, well, [[{{Double Standard}}s being pretty]], despite the fact that that they might not contribute money to the household, as it's more socially acceptable for a female to be without an income than it is for a male (though this is changing). Only a female in these circumstances who is actively being hassled for not having a job or being in school can be considered a NEET.

Added DiffLines:

** Jason actually comes from a wealthy background. It's possible he funds most of his hobbies via a trust fund. That or he simply asks his mother and/or older brother for money (his father died several year prior to the game's storyline).

* Speaking of fanon, there's a widespread joke/[[MemeticMutation meme]] in Japanese ''[[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raidou Kuzunoha]]'' fandom that Narumi is a NEET (in canon he runs a detective agency, but it doesn't seem to be very successful).

* In ''Manga/RecoveryOfAnMMOJunkie'', main character Moriko Morioka is a [[ChristmasCake 30-year-old, single woman]] who has dropped out of the business world to play [=MMOs=] all day. She considers herself an "elite NEET" because she chose the lifestyle rather than having it thrust upon her, but at the same time she's still embarrassed and tries to keep people from finding out.
