* Miyamoto Usagi of ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', much like the historical figure he's loosely based on, MiyamotoMusashi.

* Walking the South America is part of Rivarez's backstory in ''{{Gadfly}}''. Unlike many examples, it's portrayed very darkly and is the source of much psychological trauma for Rivarez.

* Dr. Banner of ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'' tends to alternate between periods of this, and periods where he has more control over the Hulk and settles down. (E.g., his time with the Pantheon in the 90s, and his tenure with SHIELD in the teens.) [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk The TV series]], by contrast, was all "Walking".

-->'''Vincent:''' So you decided to be a bum?

-->'''Vincent:''' No Jules, you’re gonna be like those pieces of shit out there who beg for change. They walk around like a bunch of fuckin’ zombies, they sleep in garbage bins, they eat what I throw away, and dogs piss on ’em. They got a word for ’em, they’re called bums. And without a job, residence, or legal tender, that’s what you’re gonna be – a fuckin’ bum!

This trope is bottomless, it seems. The audience ''wants'' to believe life without roots is romantic and [[InHarmsWay full of adventure]]. [[TheDrifter The character]] has no home [[FightingForAHomeland (or he/she/it in progress of finding one)]], no job, no money, no identification, no friends, and no visible means of support, yet is always healthy, well-fed, clean, and welcome wherever he goes.

* ''Film/EncountersAtTheEndOfTheWorld'' features a global nomad in Antarctica. Growing up in Communist Eastern Europe caused him to cherish the freedom of travel. He kept a backpack packed at all times so he could up and leave at a moment's notice.

* GreenLantern and ComicBook/GreenArrow spent some time walking the earth -- or America, at least -- together in the early '70s. It was a coming-of-age time for the comic book, as much of what they saw was commentary on current politics and social situations.
