* The protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Infidel}}'' is a deconstruction, a greedy treasure hunter whose only interest in the pyramid he's exploring is the valuable treasures it may contain, and who is acting as a lone adventurer only because he's such a jerkass the rest of his expedition abandoned him and went home.

* Prior to the start of ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' this was [[spoiler:clone]] Syaoran's profession, giving him the seeds of skills needed for his task. (Being trained on the side by an [[TheHunter obsessed Vampire Hunter]] helps too).

** Overdrive's parent show, ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger'', is all about this, that year's theme being "adventure". It's even part of their role call.

* In ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'', the mentor of the team/father of the Red Ranger is one of these. Consequently, the Rangers themselves spend the bulk of the season generally following in his footsteps. This unique combination of BigDamnHeroes and AdventurerArchaeologist tends to result in a ''lot'' of property damage to ancient temples/exotic locales, not just their CityOfAdventure.
** And, well, sometimes ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger'' delve into this territory too.

** One of the uncharted worlds mentions the planet is occupied by a volus billionare who is obsessed with searching the planet's abandoned crypts for "lost beings of light" who hid away weapons to fight a "darkness from beyond the stars." It's implied the volus is insane (although Shepard and his crew would likely disagree), but he has his own army of mercenaries digging up the planet.

* Stomp's uncle in ''{{Webcomic/Stomp}}'' claims to be one of these. Whether this is true or not isn't exactly certain.

* Dr. Nina Wilde in Andy [=McDermott's=] ''The Hunt For Atlantis'' and subsequent sequels; she specializes in mythological legends such as Atlantis and Excalibur. [[InTheBlood Her parents were also archaeologists]] and were murdered on an expedition to the Himalayas to find evidence of Atlantis.

* ''Film/TheLibrarian'' (and its successor series ''[[Series/TheLibrarians2014 The Librarians]]''), while based around the adventures of librarians, definitely adhere to this trope--though usually in a [[DeconstructorFleet knowing and ironic way]].



* ''Film/TheLibrarian: Quest for the Spear'' and ''The Librarian 2: Return to King Solomon's Mines'' (both starring Noah Wyle) are [[DeconstructorFleet knowing and ironic retreads]] of this territory, or maybe simply ''bad'' retreads.

''Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainMarvel'' movie serial from 1941. Interestingly, the main exception to this is Billy Batson himself, who is chosen by the wizard Shazam to become Captain Marvel because he's the only person on the expedition except the native guide Tal Chotali who suggests maybe smashing one's way through tombs and grabbing whatever is in there isn't such a good idea. Later, Batson is entrusted with the scroll which explains how the serial's MacGuffin, the Scorpion, works because he "is probably the only one among us who can't translate it."

* Wu Xie from the mainland Chinese show ''The Lost Tomb'' and its film spinoff ''Time Raiders'' is a WideEyedIdealist legitimate archaeologist at the start of the show, but his entire family have been [[RobbingTheDead tomb robbers]] for generations and he quickly gets sucked into their ways.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', there are many ayleids ruins scattered across Cyrodiil, some of which involved in quests while the others are simply there to provide you some treasure (and trap)-filled dungeons to explore. Umbacano's quest specifically invokes this trope, as it involves the Hero exploring a good dozen of those ruins to find ancient artifacts.
