* In ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' Tim's room is so messy Batman has given up waiting on him to track down all the parts of his costume from under the piles and come in while Tim digs through the mess to help him. Tim also reacted to a classmate's neat hotel room with horror, considering it unnatural.

* The short story ''Life With a Slob'', by Gordon Van Gelder (collected in ''Creator/BruceCoville's Book of Spine Tinglers''), revolves around brothers Bob (the titular slob) and Andy (a NeatFreak). Andy eventually discovers that every piece of junk in Bob's half of the room has a bit of intelligence, and together they form a united intelligence, the Mess, which winds up becoming Andy's friend. By the end of the story, after Mess finally rebels against Bob for his poor treatment of it, Bob does his best to clean the room until Mess is supposedly gone, then moves into a separate room of his own and keeps it spotless. Andy, meanwhile, managed to keep parts of his friend safe, and within a few weeks, the room is wall-to-wall Mess again.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'': As seen in ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', Siobhan Smythe's apartment is a dumpster, and she actually likes it that way.
* ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' #27 (DC run) is "Bless This Mess," which has the girls grounded to their messy, toy-strewn bedroom until they clean it. Every time they do, Him makes it messy again.

* There is a whole sci-fi parody role-playing game whose PREMISE is that you are eking out your life from a whole PLANET full of trash that you have been exiled to. The very punk / crazy-over-the-top [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hol_%28role-playing_game%29 HOL]] even has it right in the name: Human-Occupied Landfill.

Someone's FatalFlaw is that they are messy. It's not as simple as leaving the occasional book on the floor or not cleaning up a minor spill. No, [[AbsurdityAscendant these people go all the way]] and produce environments that should not be able to sustain human life. Trash is overflowing from garbage bags like vomit from the mouths of bloated black slugs, the air is a sickly brown colour, primitive lifeforms have begun to develop under the sink and [[ItCameFromTheFridge don't even think about opening the fridge]], but don't worry! They have A System.[[TradeSnark ™]]

* Sato's apartment from ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'' definitely counts. He at least tries to keep things marginally tidy during his 'oh god I'm a {{hikkikomori}}' moments, but for the most part, its a sty.

* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': Misato and Rei's apartments seem war zones because the amount of trash, garbage and dirt littering floor and furniture. Rei made an effort to become tidier, but when [[spoiler:Shinji got absorbed into Unit 01]] she reverted to her old ways. When Asuka visited her apartment in the "Friends and Rivals" side-story she was surprised when she saw the mess because she thought Rei was tidier than her.

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'', Ross goes out with a beautiful scientist who happens to live in an absolute mess of an apartment. Joey doesn't seem to care much about spilling stuff or making a mess either, but since he lives across the hall from obsessive neat-freak Monica she occasionally makes clean-house-calls. She even showed up at the above mentioned scientists' apartment begging to let her clean it. That said, [[HypocriticalHumor she also has a massive collection of trash in her own apartment]], hidden behind the mystery door. Chandler is shocked when he finally gets it open.

* ''Series/{{Hoarders}}'' is a RealityTV series about people with compulsive hoarding. Things get even more perilous when people refuse to throw out food ("The milk's still good 'cause the carton's not puffy! It's just the outer layer of the lettuce that's gone bad! Oh... I ''think'' that was a pumpkin..."). Strangely, only two groups of subjects were [[CrazyCatLady Crazy Cat Ladies]], and the more serious one had about 50 animals (about half of them were still alive, and about half of ''those'' had to be euthanized due to aliments caused by the horrible conditions).
** The show tends to diagnose everybody as mentally ill, often disregarding that disability and/or limited mobility might be a factor (especially with older folks), being too exhausted from holding down three jobs, etc.

* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'': Shin's appartement was quite a mess before the women moved in, as shown in a flash-back. One of the most obvious effects of the women moving in is that Shin is taking better care of the place in the present day.

* Nina, Charles and Oliver's appartment in ''VisualNovel/RoseGunsDays'' is such a mess Rapunzel first wondered how they could even manage to live there. The first thing she does is to quickly teach them basic notions of cleaning and ordering, as the three grew up in the streets and were used to living in these conditions.

* ''SithAcademy'' had this as a running joke; the Dark Side always leaves a visible sign of corruption on its users, and for Maul it was that any area he lived in for more than a few hours at a time would inevitably become a pig-sty. There were mentions of civilizations rising out of the trash he left lying around, as well as at least two (maybe three) on-screen encounters with civilizations that emerged from [[ItCameFromTheFridge his fridge]].

* ''Literature/TheCurseOfTheBlueFigurine'' (and sequels): In a variant, it's only Professor Childermass's ''desk'' that's a disaster area, covered in papers and old composition books, which are literally overflowing onto the floor. The back room of his study is apparently in similar shape.
* ''Literature/ThePlantThatAteDirtySocks'': At the start of the series, Michael's half of his and Norman's room is this trope. Described as looking like a junk heap, it's so bad that "When [he] was forced to make his bed, first he had to find it."



* OlderThanFeudalism: In Myth/ClassicalMythology, Hercules had to clean the stables of King Augias, which hadn't been cleaned in over twenty years. Poor cows! He rerouted a river to accomplish it, flushing the stable like a giant toilet. And then the Labor was invalided because he didn't use his own muscle to clean the stables, instead using the river. Herc couldn't catch a break.
