*** They can be considered to be contributing (somewhat) in their own way in the later volumes. [[spoiler:Kuroka is helping Koneko and Gasper train. Her training helped Koneko unlock Shirone Mode thus increasing Team Rias' firepower. Le Fey on the other hand becomes Issei's magician contractor, so she may likely contribute in the future.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Rai the main character of Fanfic/CodeGeassColorlessMemories though a Downplayed example. Like Lelouch and Nunnally, Rai is staying in the school clubhouse thanks to Milly being one of the Ashford's and thus having a lot of pull at the school. Rai at least feels guilt about this (despite Milly's assurances) and helps out at the student council regularly to make up for it.

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* Star Butterfly in ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil''. Star stays with the Diaz who have hosted many other people in their home, though Star's magic sometimes causes problems at times, and is a walking danger magnet.

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.
