* Similarly, Fluffy & Uranus from ''{{WesternAnimation/Duckman}}'' allow their boss to stay with them for a while, but his abuse of this trope eventually leads them to calling him out on this, [[PrecisionFStrike cussing him out]], and kicking him out, in that order.

* Sinbad had a standup bit about a college student writing a heartfelt letter to his father detailing his experiences at college so far, concluding it by mentioning off-handedly that he was low on funds and could use some, if his father would be so kind. After a while, this is the exchange.
-->'''Sinbad''': "No mon', no fun, yo' son." So the father writes back "Too bad, so sad, yo' dad."

* In one episode of ''TheGuild'', Vork visits Codex at her apartment and she tells him he can help himself to anything in the kitchen. When he tries to take her frogurt maker, she has to clarify that she meant food only, which he regards as MovingTheGoalposts.
* Kerry/Seraphim from the WhateleyUniverse ran into a brutal case of this. Her powers allow her to heal people, and she looks like an angel and is staying in a church. Initially she heals people because she wants to, but soon those caring for her decide that they want the flow of interest, tourism and money she's generated to keep up and won't let her stop healing, even when it endangers her own health. It doesn't end well.

* ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'': This is why Donald's Uncle Scrooge is such a skinflit. The one time he tried to be more charitable to improve his image, this trope took full effect.

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' is also a victim of this. In one episode, when he is walking in his kitchen during the night, he lets a passing bug walk by, giving Flecko the fly a chance to take advantage of this by unofficially inviting the rest of the bugs (who were held captive by Ed Bighead) in Rocko's house.

* Both of ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'s'' [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends animated]] [[TheGarfieldShow shows]] at least once utilize a similar plot where Garfield befriends a mouse in his home, explaining he doesn't chase them. The mouse near immediately invites all of his friends to take over the place and rob it clean of food. This is obviously a [[BerserkButton sore spot]] for [[BigEater Garfield]] who decides to take action following this.

* A ''ComicBook/{{Goofy}}'' comic has a tourist family's car break down in front of Goofy's house. He lets them in to use the phone, and offers to let them live with him until the car is fixed. They start draining away at his money by their constant eating, making long-distance calls, doctor bills, helping pay for the repairs... After they finally leave, another car breaks down in front of Goofy's house... and is greeted with gunfire.
