* Established in the first episode of ''Series/Leverage'', where by taking down the aeronautics company and CEO who both hired them to steal a competitor's design (which he lied about to begin with) then tried to kill them to hide his theft (and Hardison using creative accounting with stock trades, and then doubling that with international stock markets), the entire team now had more money then any single heist ever, called "this is retirement money, this is ''buy an island'' and retire money". This was then used to allow them to buy any equipment they needed from thereon, and allow them to do good to help people and not for the money that often went (back) to the victim (though Parker still has trouble sometimes letting go of physical money/jewels/expensive items).
** While not unlimited - pausing can let you see each check Haridson gave the team was north of $23 million, making the total haul somewhere around $100 million - it's well beyond what any member was making before by themselves. And since they keep working together, it's presumed that Haridson continues to handle their finances, keeping them all well above worrying about needing any of what they steal back.

** The Joker[[labelnote:note]]No, not ''[[{{IThoughtItMeant}} That]] [[{{TheJoker}} One]]''[[/labelnote]] also seems to have unlimited funds to pay his goons whatever exorbitant paycheck they have to keep them working for a lunatic. When it is revealed that he is behind [[spoiler:[=HARP=]'s massive military operation in Pine Ridge]], one has to wonder where his money is coming from. [[spoiler:Also, how he got ahold of military grade weapons and equipment]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', the titular character seems to have no problem acquiring what is ostensibly **millions** of dollars in scientific equipment, and his parents are none the wiser. Though there is one early episode where Dexter struggles to pay off a massive debt to NASA.

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', the First Order, who are TheRemnant of TheEmpire, manage to build a massive solar system destroying weapon built into a planet (which itself is capable of travelling through hyperspace), that eats stars and fires all the energy in one shot through hyperspace to oblierate solar systems at a distance before they even know anything is coming. How they got the budget or resources to build this thing is anyone's guess.

** Massey Reinstein, representing another similarly wealthy client, figuratively wrote a blank check to Sanctum Adroit and recommended against putting too large a sum on it, on the grounds that that it would require a major military power to protect that level of wealth, rather than any burden on his client's finances.

* Played straight in ''Franchise/StarWars'' with {{The Empire}}. Can you imagine exactly how much it would cost to build not one but two moon-sized, hyperspace capable battle stations? Not to mention the 25,000 1.6 km long imperial star destroyers or the equipment of an unknown number of millions if not billions of stormtroopers. And those are just the most iconic parts of the imperial military...
