* ''Comicbook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool''. Her backstory is revealed in issue 16: she dropped out of high school and has no job, and has very little connection to the outside world.

* Purely by definition, all people who are not in job, training or education are this. This means that all the elderly and other people who retired are also a NEET - in other words, this trope is global.
* Interesting note in that despite the term being so prevalent in Japan, the word and its usage is actually British in origin. Japan simply adopted it after the market bubble burst and recession of the 90s created an influx of NEET in their society.

* 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. At one point, Zoë's roommates are all living on her pay and playing videogames all day until she forces them to come up with ways to make money for the "not having your console sledgehammered" tax. 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]].
