* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Although Taiga doesn't sleep at Shirou's house, she does spend a lot of time and take all her meals there, leading Shirou to think of her like this. Over the course of the three routes, the Emiya household sees a wide variety of temporary residents, a large amount of whom were never actually invited.

** Even more so in ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''; However, the only one actually called a freeloader is Saber, who, admittedly, doesn't do much but eat.
*** Yet the biggest freeloader and least welcome guest, Illya, wins Taiga over effortlessly, then later does the same to Taiga's mobster father so completely that he'll shelter her over his own daughter.

* In the original trilogy of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, Maya is often shown more or less living with Phoenix (or at least hanging around in his office all the time), has him buy her [[BigEater countless hamburgers]], and needs him to bail her out of trouble when she's [[ButtMonkey inevitably arrested for some murder accusation or another]]. Technically she ''does'' have an excuse to be around (she hired herself as Phoenix's assistant and he seems to have no problem with this), but her contributions tend to do more harm than good.

** Ilulu initially just kind of hangs out at Kobayashi's apartment following her HeelFaceTurn, but after a while Tohru forces her to get a job and she starts working part-time at a candy store.

* Discussed in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' when Lucoa moves in with Shouta and Tohru points out that she can't stay just stay there for free. Lucoa does offer several gifts (up to and including sexual favors) but Shouta turns them all down.

** Vashiel also gets a job at Dr. Upton's clinic, handling appointment scheduling, since his tendency to get nosebleeds just from ''mentioning'' or ''hearing'' "breasts and vaginas and stuff" is a downright terminal condition. If the poor fellow wasn't immortal, he would probably die if he accidentally walked into a Hooters.

** This was addressed a little in the {{Spinoff}} manga. Mihoshi does give part of her paycheck to pay for rent and [[{{Dojikko}} all the damage she causes.]] Of course, given that Mihoshi comes from one of the richest families in the known universe, she probably doesn't even notice her paycheck.

See also the GoldDigger, who may turn into a non-platonic version of this trope once they've got their hooks into a suitably wealthy sugar-daddy[=/-]mommy.

Pretty Freeloaders are a common HaremGenre archetype, and occasionally show up in other genres too: They are girls (or sometimes guys), who move in with the protagonist as InnocentCohabitation, and just stay there, without actually doing anything (or anyone, mostly), or paying for anything.

anything. However, unlike many such freeloaders this type usually manages to get away with it by virtue of being sufficiently good looking and sexy.
