* The title quote from Music/{{Marillion}} is ostensibly about an annoying an annoying person who keeps following the song's protagonist...although the annoying guest is almost certainly a metaphor for the AIDS virus.

* In ''VideoGame/ClockTower'' for the SNES, when you are being chased by [=ScissorMan=], if you duck into an elevator, when you reach the floor you were heading for, [=ScissorMan=] will step out of the nearby room. I doubt this was intended as part of the game, but it is certainly freaky if you don't expect it.

** Discussed by Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax when they need to get rid of a crown, but are afraid that someone will find it sooner or later. Nanny compares it to a magic ring that, even if you throw it into the sea, will be right there waiting for you when you get home. Granny however claims this has never actually happened to either of them.

* The Orb of Bliss in ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfWiglafAndMordred'' Unlike the magical swords, she floats and can move freely about, thus following Mordred everywhere. And even when he tried to get rid of her, she comes back. [[spoiler:Most recently he got fed listening to her chatter and stuffed her in a box which he tossed out the 2nd story window, only to have it, and the undamaged orb, returned in the next page by the downstairs neighbor.]]

The trope is named after the song and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bETCusT5kNM cartoon]] ''The Cat Came Back'', where a man desperately tries to get rid of a cat, but no matter what he does to get rid of the thing, the cat comes back "the very next day" (and brings massive misfortune to anyone who tried to take it away).

* WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker has this problem in the classic short ''A Fine Feathered Frenzy''. An anthropomorphic bird who was a gigantic geriatric named Gorgeous Gal fell in love with him instantly. In her mansion, she rode an escalator down towards him so she could greet the woodpecker with a big smooch. Woody liked her sexy voice but was turned off by her appearance. So he turned the escalator on full blast in reverse knocking her out of a window. He thinks he's rid of her but when he goes to sit down he winds up right on her lap. Woody tries to run away but Gorgeous appears everywhere he does for some flirting and kissing. Woody runs clear across the country and swims to a small island but Gorgeous Gal grabs him, marries him and ravages him in a golden submarine on their honeymoon.

* In one episode of ''Series/{[Seinfeld}}'', Elaine grows frustrating over the barking of her neighbor's dog keeping her awake all night, and when her neighbor refuses to do anything about it, she enlists the help of Kramer and Newman to kidnap the dog and dump it off beyond the state border. In an example that takes this trope UpToEleven, the dog manages to find its way all the way back to its home. Even worse, thanks to a piece of Kramer's shirt it had ripped off before being dumped, the police were able to implicate him, Elaine, and Newman for dognapping.
