** He's currently doing it again at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been mooching for the past several years. At least this time, has a reason (other than laziness): he sets foot outside the Embassy, he gets arrested for, among other things, espionage and previously a rape charge in Sweden which he was facing extradition for from the UK. The charge has been abandoned by Sweden, who presumably couldn't be bothered anymore but he still cowers away as he faces charges of skipping bail. He did promise to leave the embassy if the US released Chelsea Manning. Obama did that when he left office but, surprise surprise, Assange is still hiding away.

* ''LightNovel/ReZeroKaraHajimeruIsekaiSeikatsu'': Roswaal's librarian, Beatrice, has enhanced his library to prevent anyone but him from entering. This serves especially well to her favor as she prefers her own company. Unfortunately for her, Subaru is immune to the enchantment and can enter the library at any time he wants, which he does on a regular basis to visit Beatrice. This of course bothers Beatrice to no end but she can't do anything about it because Beatrice herself has no idea how Subaru can get pass her magic.

* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' CrackFic ''Fanfic/AllYouNeedIsLove'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5949144/1/All_You_Need_is_Love]] Naomi Misora [[SympathyForTheDevil feels so sorry]] for her [[StalkingIsLove stalker]], [[BigBad Light Yagami/Kira,]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty because he's being sexually harassed in the workplace]] that [[WhatWereYouThinking she invites him to stay at her place for a couple days...]] In the end Naomi ends up kidnapping Raye (her clueless fiancé) and fleeing the country to get away from Light. Meanwhile Light, who has to date not yet left her apartment, sends her a note informing her that the fridge is empty and now L and Matsuda (the stalker's stalkers) had followed him there and are in the process of "redecorating." The story then has a TimeSkip-it's five years later and Light still hasn't left.
* In the ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' CrackFic ''FanFic/PleaseStopEatingTheHellButterflies'', Gin tended to as much time in Soul Society as he did in Hueco Mundo. Yamamoto constantly told him to stop coming back -- but stopped when he learned that Gin had been doing the Third Division's paperwork and had offered to do Kenpachi's as well. Then he reinstated Gin as captain of the Third Division.

* "The Awful Fate of Melpomenous Jones", by Stephen Leacock. Subverted, however, in that the curate actually ''wants'' to leave, as much or more than his hosts want him to, but they keep inviting him to stay because they don't want to be rude, and he doesn't want to refuse for the same reason. [[spoiler: The story ends with him dying and breathing a sigh of relief that he can finally GO.]] The story was adapted into a short animation by the National Film Board of Canada, which can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGcALHs8PsI here]].

** [=SpongeBob=] himself qualifies as this. Squidward would love to spend the day doing things that bring him peace and calm, but he can't, because every time he settles down for some quiet relaxation, [=SpongeBob=], with Patrick in tow, loudly barges into Squidward's house and announces that the three of them will do an activity that only he and Patrick will enjoy. Despite Squidward clearly and loudly stating that he is no interested in taking part in whatever they are doing, [=SpongeBob=] will refuse to take "no" for an answer.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' takes this to absurd levels with Squidward as the unwanted guest. He takes advantage of Spongebob's natural friendliness, naïveté, and eagerness to help. This eventually proves too much for SpongeBob, and, soon begins aggressively giving Squidward ''blindingly obvious'' hints to get a job, which Squidward either doesn't notice or deliberately chooses to ignore. It showed that even ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes SpongeBob has his limits]]'' as proven when he strangles Mr. Krabs screaming how ridiculous and stupid the entire situation was when the giant dime Mr. Krabs accused Squidward of stealing, falls out of his pants, and Squidward is rehired.
