* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Asuka's room looks like a war zone. As described in chapter 7:
-->The place was mess; the girl who lived in it had never been one for tidiness after all. Even after Shinji had offered to clean it for her, she had refused. He walked over the threshold. The air was cold, but held a faint and distinctive smell—it smelled like Asuka. In the dark he could see discarded clothing, a few plates and cups, empty snack wrappers, magazines and a fluffy striped pillow on the floor where she had laid.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' episode "Chore and Peace", Lincoln figures that he's got a raw deal when his chore is taking out the trash all by himself, which is a herculean task when living with ten sisters (one of them a baby) as well as a dog, a cat, a bird, and a toilet-trained hamster. He goes on strike until he can swap chores with one of his sisters, and the trash accumulates. Things get messier when his sisters go on strike in response. It gets to the point the garbage in his second-youngest sister [[ChildProdigy Lisa]] becomes sentient. The episode ends with the garbage being taken out and the strikes ending, but Lincoln finds out the garbage workers are on strike for more money, [[HereWeGoAgain and now he and his sisters are striking to get pay for their chores.]]

Alternately, they might not just see it as trash at all, and are keeping everything around for some theoretical future use. The technical term for this is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disposophobia Disposophobia]] (the fear of throwing anything away) otherwise known as "compulsive hoarding". People who suffer from this condition basically think "I might need it later" to a life-threatening degree. ([[TooAwesomeToUse Anyone who's played an RPG might relate]]). If they don't have the phobia they could be too lazy/overworked/''sick'' to spend the umpteen hours needed to get the place together. Disabilities like compulsive hoarding are the number one cause, but this is rarely presented as a serious problem in fiction. Either way, this trope is usually PlayedForLaughs.

* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' Onizuka's apartment is not only tiny, but a wall-to-wall landfill. A can of ramen with a hole in it is the least embarrassing thing there.

* Erica Hartmann's room from ''StrikeWitches''. She also shares the room with another girl, Gertrude Barkhorn, who has it divided in half by a wooden barrier. Barkhorn refers to the barrier as her 'Maginot Line' and is horrified if even one piece of trash finds its way past. It's so messy that in one episode, she can't even find her underwear, so she ends up stealing a pair from one of the other girls taking a bath at the time. HilarityEnsues as they try to figure out who stole the underwear.
