Vagrants, the homeless, drifters, runaways, society's castoffs; there's many, ''many'' names for them, none of them nice. Most people [[BystanderSyndrome look away]] and pretend not to hear them when they ask for change, if not outright disdain and mistreat them for the crime of having been left behind by society or having left society behind. With so many moving around, who would even care enough to notice the bum who is usually in the street corner of [[JustForFun/TropeTan Trope and Tan]] every morning has gone missing?

* ComicBook/NormanOsborn claimed this is how he faked his death; he snuck out of the morgue after his fast-healing kicked in, found and killed a vagrant of his general height and build, and dressed him in the Goblin costume. Clearly he was of the mindset that such folks are trash, which [[{{Jerkass}} fits his character perfectly.]]

* In ''Film/RatRace'', when a heart meant for an emergency transplantation gets damaged, the character responsible for delivering it suggests looking for a 'drifter', killing him, and cutting his heart out as a replacement. At which point the driver starts asking questions [[OhCrap about the character's background]]. Enrico does catch on quickly, though.

** In ''[[Literature/Slime1953 Slime]]'', homeless drifter Henry Hossing is the slime's first victim. He's just passing through, and consequently no one notices his disappearance - everyone just assumes he moved on. By the time someone ''does'' discover that he's missing, the initial assumption is that Henry himself is the murderer. Only after people begin surviving the slime's attacks to tell their story do the police realize Henry was just another victim.

** In ''[[Literature/TheShapesOfMidnight The Impulse to Kill]]'', an interesting variation is provided when the protagonist chooses not homeless people to kill, but criminals who he dupes into attempting to rob him, because he believes no one will care if would-be thieves are killed while committing robbery. He's right. [[spoiler:At first, at least. Past a certain point, the police start getting suspicious that so many people keep getting killed attempting to rob him, forcing him to move and begin again in a new town.]]

* In ''Fat White Vampire Blues,'' vampire protagonist Jules is a sympathetic character, but is ''not'' a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire; he may munch the occasional criminal if they come after him, but mostly he preys on those who won't be missed, and there's no shortage of those in New Orleans. Subverted at the end however, when he finds out that the seemingly anonymous homeless woman he fed on at the very beginning of the book was a beloved pillar of the community who constantly did everything she could to help others despite having nothing herself. [[HeelRealization This makes Jules realize]] that no, he's not "just eating" he really has spent the last hundred years murdering people.

* In ''Series/TheCape'', several lived in the train yard where Vince "died". They're being arrested on trumped up charges rather than killed though.
* The [=UnSub=] in the ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode ''Legacy'' kidnaps homeless people, prostitutes, drug users etc. and kills them. He's only caught because a detective whose [[SuperOCD OCD]] forces him to catalogue everyone he comes into contact with on the streets notices that ''63'' of them have disappeared without a trace.

* In ''Series/RobocopTheSeries'', the MadScientist Dr. Cray-Z was doing this to get a living brain for his experiment. Unfortunately, his accomplice was simply dumping the bodies, and the police were suspicious to say the least of homeless being killed by a SerialKiller who took the brain.

* In ''Roleplay/DawnOfANewAgeOldportBlues'', Daigo gains powers of vampirism and decides to use them against the wealthy elite. Before that, however, he and his gang first drive over to a low-income neighbourhood to test his newfound power on an innocent drifter that no-one will miss. Daigo's blood transforms him into a monster, who then starts wreaking havoc around the neighbourhood- which draws the attention of one of the protagonists, since he lives on said street.

* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', the Ghosts are a group of semihuman experiments that act as spies and commandos against the AcademyOfEvil. A Ghost team is self-sustaining and can set up facilities to produce more of them, but they need organic material and a brain to work with in order to rapidly make another Ghost. They therefore prefer to prey upon homeless children.

* ''Fanfic/ConcerningADrifter'' plays with this, as much of the girls Ryuuko's captors kidnapped were, in some way or another, vagrants (being backpacking tourists, migrant workers, and drifters), making them easy targets, as few would/could report them missing or keep track of them, which causes much of the conflict in the fic, as Ryuuko was kidnapped and trafficked while on a nomadic trip and Satsuki tried to find her. Likewise, the fact that Ryuuko was a vagrant makes it harder to get the authorities involved or to track down her captors.
