* Hinted at in Julie Brown's "'Cause I'm a Blond" (from ''Film/EarthGirlsAreEasy''):
-->"When I see people working, it just makes me giggle.\\
'cause I don't have to work, I just have to [[{{Gainaxing}} jiggle!]]"

** Later the house acquires two more straight examples: [[spoiler:Le Fey, who lives unobtrusively in a room in the basement, and Kuroka, who's been after Issei's genes from day one and so just offers to make her [[InnocentCohabitation cohabitation]] less innocent whenever rent is mentioned.]]

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' starts straightforward, then plays with this a bit. At first, it's just Asia living in the Hyoudou house's spare room - it was this or homelessness, and [[ChivalrousPervert Issei]] and [[OpenMindedParent his parents]] were hardly going to kick her out. Then Rias moves in as well, and she could very easily pay her own way. Then when the rest of the harem moves in, it gets completely flipped and averted in one move - the house is renovated into a palatial mansion overnight, and it's all but outright stated that Rias is footing the bills now. She tolerates Issei's parents, since she treats them as future in-laws anyway ([[ParentalObliviousness and they could be paying doctored bills without noticing]]), almost all the rest of the residents are members of her Peerage and do Devil work for her, and the one exception is effectively a VIP diplomat.

* The squirrel girls from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'', who are useless at best and destructive at worst, having nearly got the main cast killed on two occasions. Strangely, they are in fact capable of amazing technical feats, which they could make lots of money off of were it not for their lack of common sense.

It doesn't help that three of them are agoraphobic, and due to their HiveMind they can barely even function individually.

Related to FriendsRentControl, as the characters' ability to do this is frequently {{handwave}}d as one of the characters having a rich family, the main character won a giant house and commodities in a contest, etc., and the plot point is promptly forgotten for the rest of the series. If this behavior is tolerated or encouraged, it may be due to FavorsForTheSexy. If someone gets sick of them (usually roommates who are NotDistractedByTheSexy and just want them out; expect cries of "Dude, get your fuckin' girlfriend out of here" or something of that sort if this does happen), it usually turns into TheThingThatWouldNotLeave.

* A rather disturbing example is used in one Creator/JunjiIto story, ''The Bizarre Hikizuri Siblings - Second Daughter's Lover''. The protagonist is contacted by a pretty classmate who's threatening suicide because she can't stand living with her creepy, weird siblings anymore. He stops her attempt, takes pity on her, and lets her live with him. From then on, all she does is laze around the house while he works to support both of them. Every time he suggests she get a job or go live somewhere else, [[WoundedGazelleGambit she starts accusing him of not wanting her at all and threatening to kill herself]]. [[spoiler:She's taken back by her siblings and seemingly goes through with SelfImmolation, which leads to her siblings blaming the protagonist for her death and forcing him to spend the night with her charcoal-like remains. After he dies of a heart attack from the stress of it, it turns out she's alive and well and fakes suicide constantly.]]
