** Worse, by the end of Volume 4, poor [[spoiler:Weiss]] has been hit by this twice. [[spoiler:Her abusive father has practically stripped her of her fortune and imprisoned her, and her sister Winter and butler Klein are the only friendly family she really has left. Weiss has run away from home to Mistral in pursuit of Winter and Ironwood's policy of closing Atlas' borders means that returning back home will be difficult for her.]]

* The forgotten toy line ''Snailiens''. The heroes are a group of mollusc-like aliens who come to Earth to help save a population of oppressed insects. In the process a human boy finds their ship, mistakes it for an interesting-looking shell and puts it on the highest shelf in his bedroom to keep it out of the hands of his baby brother. It's not destroyed, but it's so high up the miniscule heroes are resigned to the fact that they'll never recover it.

* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', after Alex gets fed up with receiving nothing but mistrust from [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy and the rest of the Scoobies]], she flees Sunnydale in tears. Needing a moment to think and calm down, she lands on the dock behind the house she shared with Louise. Problem is, in the Buffyverse, its not her house, not her property, and not her dock. The owner quickly asks her to leave, citing all the "No Tresspassing" signs he has around the property.

* ''3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars'' opens by touching on this trope and then inevitably hammers it in hard on any Player Characters - all [=PCs=] are outcast from the utopian society on Earth, and forced into glorified penal legions sent to "proactively defend" Earth by committing genocide on all other life in the galaxy. Any character who lasts long enough can develop a "Hatred for Home" trait that risks them eventually going back to WhereItAllBegan... to exterminate Earth in revenge for what they were forced to do.

* A minor plot point in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' and partially a source of angst in the first parts of the story. The kids get over it fairly quickly though. [[spoiler: The reason they can't go home is because Earth is a desolate wasteland and they're the sole survivors of mankind]].

* A minor plot point in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is that Sburb, a video game which can manipulate physical objects, is targeted at players who are entering adolescence and partially beginning to want to escape their homes for a source life of angst in the first parts of the story. The kids get over it fairly quickly though. their own.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' goes to great lengths to describe why a fledgling should never go back to its mortal life. Even if its old friends and family can cope with its return as a vampire; even if the vampire has enough HeroicWillpower to keep its HorrorHunger and {{Unstoppable Rage}}s in check; the dysfunctional, sadistic, and highly lethal vampiric societies ''will'' find out and take a ''very'' dim view of mortals learning about their existence.
* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', every newly-made Changeling quickly learns that the [[TheFairFolk Fae]] who abducted and transformed them left a [[ReplicantSnatching lifelike impostor in their place]]. Good luck convincing the family that the deformed, unhinged version of their loved one who showed up out of nowhere is actually the real person. Even if they manage, Changelings are irreversibly bound to Fate, which tends to turn them into {{Doom Magnet}}s for mortals they get too close to.

** By the end of ''Film/ANewHope'', Luke has lost pretty much everything. His aunt and uncle are dead, he can't go back to the farm, because he would have been killed even before the Death Star incident thanks to the droids. [[TheObiWan His mentor]] dies, and Biggs, his best friend, dies being a human shield protecting him during the Battle of Yavin. [[TraumaCongaLine This all takes place over the course of a couple days tops]]. A few expanded universe novels imply that the only thing that got Luke though was the adrenaline and the fact that he was given practically no downtime for him to think about it. Subverted in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', when he has to return to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt.
