* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet:'' the Galactic Alliance of Humanity ''wants'' to find a planet to live on, but none if habitable; thus everyone lives in ships, with a space station called Avalon serving as the capital and some SpaceNomads who are not yet under the government's control. However, most of the series is set on Earth, [[EarthThatWas which the protagonist accidentally rediscovers]] [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler in the first episode]].

* In ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' Kaylee refers to their ship as their home. They don't really seem to have another.
** Mal really ''doesn't'' anymore. His homeworld was Shadow, a Independent stronghold, which suffered such intense OrbitalBombardment from the Alliance during the Unification War, the entire planet was left a "[[ApocalypseHow black rock]]" afterwards.
** Similarly, Zoe was born on a ship, not dirtside. She literally has no homeworld.

* ''Film/BattleBeyondTheStars''. Gelt says he doesn't have a homeworld -- he was born in space, which is appropriate for a [[SpaceIsCold cold-blooded killer]], but also reflects his need to live on a planet [[ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest where no-one is going to shoot him in revenge for his past deeds]].

Added DiffLines:




to:

* Manga/TwoThousandOneNights has an entire generation of people born in space, known as Tachyonians, who have better reaction time and intellect. [[spoiler: In fact, 5000 of them decided to leave on a GenerationShip to explore the galaxy in contrast to human civilization's retreating away from the frontier]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Belters of ''Literature/TheExpanse'' are this. Given that it is a much harder sci-fi than the rest, they are {{Lightworlder}}s even with bone-growth increasing medicine.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' mention is made of a species called the Ongachic, who abandoned their homeworld long ago for unstated reasons. They seem to be SpaceNomads, with a group attacked by the Yeerks working as minstrels.
** The Ketrans become this after their planet, Ket, is attacked by the Capasins. They actually want to find a new planet, but are holding out for one with the very specific, unlikely atmospheric conditions of their home world, where everyone lived on [[FloatingContinent giant crystals floating in the sky]].


* In ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' the entire human race ends up as this. Some people, such as Cale, live as second class citizens on space stations and (presumably) planets but the Drifter colonies adhere closely to this trope and even lash ships together for more living space.

* In ''Webcomic/CrimsonDark'', about one in ten children raised in space will develop Spacer Syndrome, which is basically an inability to tolerate natural gravity. It causes symptoms similar to extreme motion sickness for the entire time that they're on the surface. Even people who live and work entirely in space will make a concerted effort to keep their kids planetside for their first few years, in order to avoid this.

* In Literature/LucifersStar by Creator/CtPhipps, people who live predominately in Space are called "Spacers." They are implied to live generationally on ships and have a FreeLoveFuture attitude to sex [[{{Polygamy}} as well as relationships often becoming group based.]] They're also people who tend to get cheap but egfective genetic enhancements to permanently make zero-g space travel better for their bones.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'' there are a number of people like this including one human minor race. Free Traders are implied to often live like this. And while not the same thing there are a large number of people who while living on planet have more connection to intersteller life then their homeworld.

* In the ''Literature/{{Boojumverse}}'' Christian cultists, Arkhamers and gillies are mentioned, though not explained in detail. They're the subject of prejudice and distrust, and they're implied to have been driven off Earth as a result of religious or government persecution, and taken on roles that enable them to be tolerated for the usefulness. Christians have modified their bodies to be capable of working in space -- in "Mongoose", Izrael passes one in a corridor who has replaced her arms with four sucker-tipped tentacles. [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Arkhamers]] are practitioners of MadScience -- the [[PetMonstrosity Cheshires]] they breed can be used to hunt extra-dimensional predators. 'Gillies' are FishPeople; useful for extreme environments but subject to FantasticRacism.
