Added DiffLines:

* Guts and his friends in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' roam the continent to hunt down man-eating demons called [[DemonOfHumanOrigin apostles]].
* All warriornesses do this in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. They travel across the continent until they receive a new order to kill a yoma.
* The flame hazes from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' travel all over the world to hunt evil demons. However, it is not unusual for them to settle temporarily in larger cities.


Added DiffLines:

* In the German SF series ''Literature/{{Maddrax}}'' the adventurers also move around the whole, [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world, to experience different adventures there, or to fight evil forces.

** ''Life to the lees:'' Note that Dante, at least formally believing the ''Aeniad'''s conceit that the Trojans founded Rome and became the national ancestors of the Italians, has it in for Odysseus, hence his position among the False Counselors in the Eighth Circle of Hell.

* Celeb chef Anthony Bourdain's travelogue show ''Series/NoReservations.'' In fact, the original premise of the show was that he would be dropped off at a location without his knowledge ala ''ManVsWild'' or ''Series/{{Survivorman}}'' and forced to experience the local culture on his own, but that premise was quickly dropped in favored of well-researched and carefully-planned itineraries.

* Paul Erdős. He went from mathematician to mathematician, staying over and helping them in their work. Mathematicians note direct or indirect collaborations with Erdős through a system of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erdos_number Erdős number]]s.[[note]]25 years after the article that defined Erdős numbers, the movie world got a sort of a counterpart in the form of [[SixDegreesOfKevinBacon Bacon numbers]][[/note]]

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Lots of pokemon trainers, some as young as ten and others older, walk through regions and between regions to find new pokemon for their teams, challenge other trainers, and collect badges to compete in the region's tournament. There are lots of Pokémon Centers that act as both an inn and a hospital to make this more practical. Ash's group is generally portrayed as better off than the Team Rocket trio because they spend their money on food and tents instead of evil schemes and robots.

** The ''Sun and Moon'' anime does things a bit differently as Ash and his friends ''aren't'' traveling around as in other series. This mostly due to the fact that the Alola region is made up of only four islands and could easily be traversed in a few days.

* JackReacher from Lee Child's books. After spending his life traveling the world with the army and living overseas most of his life, he chooses to become a drifter to see America. He never intends to make connections or put down roots, each of his adventures takes place in a different location, and he never buys anything he can't throw away.

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', the Saotomes had been doing this for about fifteen years at the opening of the series. It's left up in the air whether or not their time in the Tendo Dojo qualifies as the ''end'' of their walking the earth, or merely a temporary respite. Also, antagonist Ryoga Hibiki always Wanders The Earth, due to the fact that his [[NoSenseOfDirection sense of direction]] is so ''bad'' he gets lost trying to [[TheExitIsThatWay walk across a room]]. [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Ukyo Kuonji]] also spent about ten years doing this after Genma stole her father's cart and abandoned her, while minor [[VillainOfTheWeek single-arc antagonists]] are often implied to be doing this, like Natsume & Kurumi (anime) and Ryu Kumon (manga), who are travelling all over Japan in search of their father and the counterpart to their school of martial arts respectively.

This trope is a very American one and is quite common in older [[TheWestern westerns]]. As far as big TV producing nations go, The U.S. of A. has the geography best suited to this form of adventure. Australia also has the tradition of the Walkabout, where young men would wander the land for months as a spiritual journey. However, this occurs in other countries as well, such as the {{ronin}} stories of Japan and the Chivalric Cycles of Europe and the U.K.

* The western series ''Series/WagonTrain'' featured a group of people "walking the earth". According to Gene Roddenberry, the show's format of wandering from place to place and encountering different characters and adventures was the template for his own ''Franchise/StarTrek''.
