* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' featured an episode where the Fire Ferrets had lost most of their hard-earned winnings by paying their rent and equipment costs, and therefore couldn't supply the entry fee they needed to enter the pro-bending tournament as well as being in danger of being turned back to the streets. Mako attempts to earn money by getting a day job using his lightning-bending to power a grid at a power plant and Bolin also tries to get some by panhandling for coins while his fire ferret Pabu does tricks. They eventually get the money they need when Mako's new friend Asami convinces her father, the wealthy industrialist Hirosi Sato, to sponsor them in the tournament.

** During the ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentAvengers'' era, the team is forced to be based inside an abandoned Stark Hangar and ration out certain things like the Quinjet due to the fact that Stark was broke. The ''ComicBook/{{Avengers 2016}}'' era fixes this by giving the remaining Avengers a new base inside Parker Industries' main headquarters (which is also the Baxter Building)

* The ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' episode "Cash" was basically Edmund up to his eyeballs in debt, pursued by a LoanShark. Thankfully, he's able to blackmail the loan shark into not only calling off the debt, but also out of several thousand pounds extra.

* ''Series/Friends'': One early episode focused on the differences in income among the group. They wanted to celebrate Monica's promotion and Ross's birthday, both ''some place nice''. Turns out, Monica (a sous-chef in a fancy resaurant), Ross (works at a museum) and Chandler (a corporate job) have way more money than Joy (an unemployed actor), Phoebe (a freelancing masseuse) and Rachel (a waitress). HilarityEnsues as the poor ones try to order the cheapest things on the menu, and the others being completely oblivious to their issue.

* An episode of AbsolutelyFabulous had both of Edina's ex-husbands realize that she had been scamming them both for oodles of alimony and child support money, and they cut her off. Edina frets that she is now poor, and her attempts to adjust by doing normal things like grocery shopping result in hilarity. In the end it's subverted; her daughter Saffron reveals that she's still quite wealthy even without the money from her exes, and she merely let her think she was poor to teach her a lesson. It doesn't stick.
