** Other odd spell ingredients he used to keep on hand include sunshine wrapped up in a handkerchief, mainly for use on vampires. And in {{Literature/Changes}}, he has to remove stuff from his apartment in a hurry that the FBI might be interested in. The list of stuff he's bundling up includes two swords (one of which the police would call a murder weapon in a local case), depleted uranium and a human skull.

* Gil Grissom's office from ''{{Series/CSI}}'' mirrors the owner's fascination with insects where he keeps full preserved bodies of giant spiders and other bugs that catch his fancy. ** Not all that strange, really. Any biology professor or entomology hobbyist in the world is likely to have a similar collection.

This isn't particularly strange by the standards of this trope -entomology is a well-established and perfectly respectable field of study- but bringing his hobby to work with him like that strange, really. Any biology professor or entomology hobbyist in the world is likely to have a similar collection.must make his coworkers nervous.

* Rimmer in ''Series/RedDwarf'' collects photos of 20th century telegraph poles. Meanwhile the Cat collects clothes, while Lister contents himself with growing the mould in his used coffee cup.

** The Necron special character Trazyn the Infinite, amusingly. Think SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom if he was a killer skeleton robot from space and you have a decent idea of what he's like. His collection includes, among other things, the wraithbone choir of Craftworld Altansar, the preserved severed head of Sebastian Thor, an [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Enslaver#.Ues7iI2koTc Enslaver]] husk, and baroque set of Space Marine power armour (with the accompanying Blood Angels marine; it's implied that the poor sap is ''far'' from the only technically living thing in Trazyn's collection), and the world spirit shrine of Maiden World Carnac. And Trazyn is always looking to add more things to his bizarre gathering of oddities.

* How strange these things ([[spoiler: a silver spoon for Greed, a glass tainted with red for Gluttony, a clockwork doll for Sloth, four mirrors for Pride, a pair of scissors for Envy, a sword with poison on its blade for Lust, and a yet unknown object that is heavily implied to change forms for Wrath]]) are is up for everyone to judge, but in Music/{{Vocaloid}} song-producer {{Mothy}}'s songs, Gallerian Marlon (sung by Kaito) strives to collect the 'Vessels of the Seven Deadly Sins'- so much, that he is nicknamed The Collector, apart from his first name sounding very similar to 'gallery'.

* Ross of [[WebVideo/RossGameDungeon Ross's Game Dungeon]] is very skilled at hunting down rare and absolutely bizarre games that nobody's ever heard of before. A good example of this is ''[[MindScrew Bip Bop II.]]'' A better example is ''Bip Bop '''III''''', which basically had UnPerson status until he managed to find a copy.
