* ''Series/{{House}}'' has a Romani patient-of-the-week who gets the opportunity from Foreman to study medicine, but he decides to return to his family instead. The show refrains from judgment, showing the man surrounded by a large family while Foreman returns to home to eat alone and read scientific journals.

* In Brian Jacques' ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series, foxes are stereotyped as sly, deceitful, vaguely magical tricksters and all-around ManipulativeBastard types - many are fortunetellers with fashion choices seeming to prefer brightly colored skirts and headscarves, and bangles. Seeing as certain animal species are AlwaysChaoticEvil, this leads to a number of UnfortunateImplications. However, unlike other stereotypical gypsies, foxes usually appear as advisors to the various evil warlords that try to conquer Redwall or Salamandastron, rather than wandering thieving bands. Not that that depiction is any better, mind you. On the lighter side of things, the Guosim are a roving community of shrews in Mossflower, actually referred to as gypsies once or twice. They wear brightly colored clothing and move around a lot, but they are regarded as trustworthy and invaluable allies to the woodlanders.

* The ''Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch'' novel ''The Missing'' introduces the People of the Sky, a group of nomadic travellers with little use for formality or regulations, who briefly settle on the station. The culture they left claims they kidnap children, which Dr Crusher points out is exactly the sort of libel that used to be spread about the Romani.

* Iron Crown Enterprise's ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberspace}}'' cyberpunk RPG. Gypsies were nomadic homeless people who lived in clans.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Everway}}'' supplement ''Spherewalker Sourcebook''. The Basahn are clearly Everway's version of the Roma. They have light olive skin and dark hair, they travel as families (often in caravans), they speak their own language (called Basahni) and they have a reputation as cheats and liars and face fear, hatred and distrust wherever they go.
