** Another DC comics example is Cindy [[strike:"Gypsey"]] ''"Gypsy"'' [[strike:Renolds]] ''Reynolds''.
** The second Batgirl, a runaway who lived on her own for almost ten years, somehow making it from Macau to Gotham in the process, with no communication skills or idea how to survive in society, due to having been raised up to that point in a secluded bunker.

* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', a runt named Tiny took to the streets after being told that humans throw unwanted kits in the river. His street life began pitiful and begging for scraps, but thanks to telling some tall tales and gradually BecomingTheMask, he ends up as Scourge, the feared leader of [=BloodClan=] (the city strays).

Street Urchins are usually boys, but having the character suddenly revealed to be a {{tomboy}} is just as common. Not quite a WholesomeCrossdresser, she just really doesn't have the money for any feminine clothes. Not to mention that, in many places like this, it's probably for the best that some people ''not'' [[SweetPollyOliver know you're a girl]]. Though there are a few examples of openly and obviously female urchins.

* Norwegian feature film ''Film/StreetUrchins'' has several. Only one of boys fits the trope completely though.

** Terry Pratchett's non-Discworld novel ''Literature/{{Dodger}}'' is set in a Victorian London almost identical to our own and has characters suspiciously reminiscent of those in ''Literature/OliverTwist''. Indeed, Charles Dickens himself is a major character who interacts with the streetwise Dodger.

** For that matter so was [[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Skif]], at least to start out with.
