* The Weaver from ''PerdidoStreetStation'' collects scissors, apparently because the sound they make appeals to its otherworldly aesthetic sense. Previously it'd collected chess sets.

* In an episode of ''MidsomerMurders'', the fact a suspect for the murder is somewhat mentally distressed is lampshaded by the fact he is an obsessive collector of and wargamer with Creator/GamesWorkshop fantasy armies. He is also a CannotTalkToWomen type whose obsessive love for a female character is condensed into his trying to paint a warrior woman miniature figure to look ''exactly'' like her. In TV drama, nobody ''ever'' collects toy soldiers who is mentally balanced, psychologically normal and socially integrated. This is always a lazy TV shorthand for ''obsessive deranged loner''.

* While Jim Londos had done something huge in lucha libre when he took the mask of El Enmascarado Rojo, it was Bobby Segura who gained a reputation for ''collecting'' the masks of luchadors and in fact was [[TraumaticHairCut humiliating shaved]] as a result of failing to take Rojo's after Londos gave it back.

Although this isn't so strange anymore what with some luchadors having "collections" that dwarf that of the entire Segura [[WrestlingFamily family]] combined, but in 1946, yeah.
