* In the comic novel ''Young Adolf'' by Beryl Bainbridge, a big-hearted Austrian woman living with her husband in Liverpool, England just before WW1, is concerned for the welfare of her idealistic, dreaming, and utterly lazy younger brother, who she loves despairingly. Trying to get him out of his idle student ways and offer him a new chance, she invites him to Liverpool to stay with her family. At least he can get a job and learn some English. Her husband reluctantly allows this. but [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler young Adolf]] proves just as lazy, unrealistic, and entitled as he ever was at home...[[note]] Hitler's sister and brother in law did indeed live in Liverpool until just before the first world war. While not conclusively proven, there is circumstantial evidence to indicate Adolf Hitler visited them for a short holiday. Did a man later addicted to bunkers ever go to the Cavern?[[/note]]

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Otto moves in with the Simpsons after he loses his job. Later subverted when Homer kicks him out, and calls him a "drain-clogging, last-cookie-eating, collect-call-getting-sponge". Ironically, his [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne anger at being called a sponge]] is what motivates Otto to retake his driving test so he can get his job and his apartment back.
** The plot of taking a houseguest has been recycled several times: The Simpsons have taken in such Springfield regulars as Krusty ("Krusty Gets Kancelled" and "The Last Temptation of Krust"), Sideshow Bob ("The Great Louse Detective"), Apu ("Homer and Apu," and the season nine episode "Lisa's Sax" had Apu randomly appearing in the Simpson house during a parody of the ''All in the Family'' opening theme), Chester J. Lampwick ("The Day the Violence Died") and Gil (who stayed a whole year, according to "Kill Gil, vols. I & II). When Kent Brockman, this was subject of a LampshadeHanging when Homer asks him for an 8"x10" for "the wall of casual acquaintances who came to stay for a while". The most recent example is Lurleen Lumpkin (the country singer whom Homer tried to promote, despite that Lurleen was seducing him) in "Papa Don't Leech."

* Subverted in ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]''. Protagonist Mary Jane Watson is invited by her Aunt Anna to live with her and Mary Jane's cousin Kristy while she attends university, but Mary Jane refuses in part because she's afraid she'd be mooching off them. Mary Jane insists on staying in her own apartment, only to [[HeroicBSOD suffer a nervous breakdown]] and lose her apartment after being a TripleShifter catches up with her. Finally, Mary Jane moves in with Anna and Kristy, although she insists on doing a lot of the housework and helping out financially to earn her keep.
** Another subversion occurs with Mary Jane's mother Maddie Lieber-Watson. When Maddie and Mary Jane were kicked out of the family home by Maddie's husband [[DomesticAbuse Phillip Watson]], Anna offers Maddie a place to stay. This is more {{Justified}} than many cases, since Maddie is initialy a ''seriously'' BrokenBird and is in no shape to take care of herself.

* ''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.
