* Riff in ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'' gets described as a [[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/19971110 "freelance bum"]] by Torg when the latter notices he's not actually doing anything besides being a MadScientist GadgeteerGenius. Subverted later when it turns out he's being secretly employed to do just that by a dodgy corporation that funds such people to get the occasional brilliant invention they make. Later, after Torg's freelance web design career goes under and Riff leaves his job with guns blazing and stuff, several characters all find themselves in this position.

Luckily, they get to live in a big house for free after [[ItMakesSenseInContext their landlord is eaten by a giant monster in a hellish alternative dimension]].

* ''Webcomic/BlasterNation'' has Rinnie during it's first chapters, as she would rather freeload from her friend Kimmy, lives in her livingroom and doesn nothing but eat junkfood and write Yaoi Fanfiction, with Dan (Kimmy's boyfriend) constantly telling her to get a job or move out. She eventually realizes that she had reached bottom and tries to be a better person (with very slow steps, anyway).
* Elliot Torres, the protagonist of ''Webcomic/BloodStain'', is a more serious approach to how a NEET would exist in a realistic setting. She never decided to work due to her older sister, Clara, taking care of financial responsibilities, so she instead slacks off, gets kicked out from any job applied, and plays game after college until the age of 27. When their mother lands in the hospital, the Torres' expenses shoots up to the point where they need to cut corners. Once Clara points out that she'll have to cancel internet service for Elliot's games, Elliot makes a genuine effort to hold onto a job. However, due to her employers' own financial struggle, Elliot is let go, so she desperately reapplies to a shady job opening, which sets up the main story of the webcomic.
* A strip of ''Homo Sexience'' featured a King whose method of deterring assassins was to build a tower with him at the top, and 4 of the most beautiful women from history on the floors below him, trusting that they would tire the assassins out before they could reach him. One finally got to the top, explaining that "They didn't even glance at me when I told them I was unemployed."
