** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* L from ''Manga/DeathNote''. He has enough money to have a skyscraper built in ''[[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Tokyo]]'', in a matter of months (and only use a few floors out of the 100 or so in there), pay for a pension for all members of the task force, and [[AllThereInTheManual go to museums and concerts on a whim]]. [[spoiler: He also leaves Near enough money that Near can quite literally throw money away to save the SPK building.]] It's revealed that he gets a lot of money for solving high-profile cases, and [[ChildProdigy somehow]] has extensive knowledge of the stock market.

to:

* [[Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia Frank Reynolds]] is a truly bizarre example -- while he's amassed a non-specific fortune via decades of scams and illegal business practices, his decision to spend his remaining years in a state of utter debauchery means that he ''only'' breaks out his checkbook when a scheme is involved, and otherwise chooses to live in abject poverty with Charlie, dumpster-diving and eating raccoon meat.

Added DiffLines:

* The Mueller organization of ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' has access to one of these due to its large number of adherents and its coercive control of them. In issue 12, it's represented to Chloe by a blue credit card with "essentially no limit".

* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''[[Literature/NightWatch New Watch]]'', Anton finds out that his Watch-issued ATM card doesn't appear to have a limit (or rather, the ATM doesn't report the limit, as the card was issued by a foreign bank). When he confronts Geser about it, Geser calmly explains that, being able to predict stock market trends and currency exchange rates means that the Watch is never short on money. Apparently, all Watch employees ''can'' take out as much money as they want, but it's not in the nature of the Light [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Others]] to be greedy. When Geser asks Anton if Anton would like to get himself a Bentley, Anton just says that his car works just fine. Besides, an expensive car would just invite curses from everyone around him. Anton does say that he wants to take his wife and daughter to a tropical vacation. Geser just shrugs indifferently.

* This seems to be the case for just about any character or organisation in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''. Even highschool students have no problem building large robots or a whole replica of the school enclosed in a force field. In comparison, the girls ability to do insane amounts of shopping on a daily basis seems quite reasonable.

to:

* 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).
