* ''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.

* ''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.

* ''Series/YoureTheWorst''
** Gretchen's apartment in Season 1 is an absolute terror. It serves as foreshadowing to the revelation she has clinical depression.
** When living on her own during her separation from her husband, Lindsay leaves her home in a trash covered mess. However, this is more due to her immaturity and irresponsible nature, and she does learn to be cleaner once she grows up a bit.

** The first time we see Leslie's apartment she admits to being something of a hoarder.
** April and Andy's house is worse; they don't seem to understand the concept of cleaning.

** The first time we see Leslie's apartment house, she admits to being something of a hoarder.
hoarder, having old birdhouses she hasn't put out and stacks of newspapers dated nearly twenty years. She's forced to call in a helper to help clean and organize it. It doesn't seem to be a problem in later episodes.
** April and Andy's house is worse; they don't seem to understand the concept of cleaning. What's worse was that they were living alone for only a week. When Ben moves in, he kicks them into high gear and they get better thanks to this.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of the Rieklings, a diminutive race of blue-skinned humanoids native to [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]] who somewhat resemble "[[OurGoblinsAreDifferent ice goblins]]". They are known to collect and hoard detritus of the more civilized cultures, which they "form strange attachments to" and have even been witnessed [[CargoCult worshiping]]. These items range from random VendorTrash, to weapons and armor, to a crashed experimental ''airship''.

* ''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..."), pet hair ("I know it's stupid but it protects my dog... somehow"), or ''guns'' ("I've heard him threaten to kill her more then once"). 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).
