* In BGataHKei, Miyano Mayu's lack of a sense of direction has reached impossible levels, to the point that at one point Kanejo opens a secret room protected by numerous barriers which only she can open, and Mayu walks out from ''inside'' this room no one could even know about crying and wondering how she got so lost.

* In IsTheOrderARabbit, main character Cocoa gets lost on a regular basis. She gets so lost in fact that when Rize is walking straight to her school, Cocoa somehow walks past her several times heading in the opposite direction at a leisurely pace. After the third time she finds Cocoa in front of her still heading the other way, Rize starts to wonder if she's in some sort of loop.

** Su and Shinobu end up touring Japan by accident while trying to reach Kyoto. They even knew that they could just get there by one train ride from Tokyo to Kyoto. They ended up travelling from Tokyo to Hokkaido (the far northern island), and then later ended up in Okinawa (the far southern island) and many places in-between.

* ''OnePiece'''s [[TheLancer Lancer]], Roronoa Zoro, has this as the only thing keeping him from being a perfect {{Badass}} BloodKnight in canon, to the point of getting lost in a straight line. But it’s hammered home just how hopeless he is in Chapter 3 of the PeggySue Fan Fiction ''Fanfic/SecondWind'', when ''[[IdiotHero Luffy]]'' has to explain to him the fault in his logic…and he still doesn’t get it.

* In ''[[VideoGame/HyruleWarriors Hyrule Warriors Legends]]'', Linkle has this to a severe degree. Despite the fact that her most treasured possession is a compass, she's completely unable to read a map or tell which direction is actually north. In fact, her victory animation is based on an early story mode scene with her, where she's trying to head to Hyrule Castle and walks in the complete opposite direction of a sign pointing to it. Taken UpToEleven if the level takes place on Hyrule Field - said castle is ''[[FailedASpotCheck in the background]]'' during the victory animation, and she still goes the wrong way.

* ''Manwha/ShinAngyoOnshi'': Something of a RecurringGag with the main hero, Munsu. He often gets lost in deserts, mountains, etc... Even when he has a map. Justified in one example though, as the map that Hwang gave him that leads to Mt. Chilgap was ''utterly useless'' (featuring a cutesy picture of Hwang, a mountain, ....and a straight arrow going from one to the other).

* In AnneHappy, Hibiki has one of the worst senses of direction ever. On several occasions people have pointed out a destination that's in her sight, and she thanks them, turns around and runs in the opposite direction; she then later blames the people who gave her directions for getting her lost. She always gives herself at least three hours to get to school on account of this.

** Co-host James "Captain Slow" May is reputed to have no sense of direction. Undoubtedly some of this is played up for comedic effect. His second nickname is even Captain Sense-of-Direction. May claims that his mental mapping is off and his mental picture of England is flipped north/south. He did start the Botswana challenge by driving towards the wrong border. His sense of direction is bad enough for him that during his stint on ''Top Gear'', he manages to get lost on racetracks not just once, but ''three'' times. And one of them is ''an oval racetrack.''

* FlyingWitch gives us Makoto Kowata, a young witch-in-training. She arrives in a rural town to live with members of her extended family. When her cousin shows up to take her to his house, she tells him that she can at least remember the way. No points for guessing what happens next.

* [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-920 SCP-920]] "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mr. Lost]]" from the Wiki/SCPFoundation is wholly incapable of being transported or directed to any destination. He himself can't choose a destination and just wanders aimlessly everywhere. If anything does try to transport him, random events such as radar malfunctions and ''earthquakes'' will render transportation impossible. Even worse, his lousy sense of direction is ''contagious''. For instance, if he's forcibly stopped and a building is constructed around him, anyone attempting to find the building will become lost.
