* Inverted in one of the book stories loosely based on the "ThenCameBronson" 1970s TV series, where Bronson more-or-less single handedly saves the concert from being cancelled, which would have probably earned him an all-access backstage pass for his effort, is standing in the background watching the show which he saved, and mentioned (as a joke) to the band's manager that it just occurred to him that he never paid for a ticket.

* One of [[Series/MadMen Peggy Olson's]] more contentious assignments was a pro bono project designing a flyer for a Church dance. WordOfGod has stated that the point of that story was to show how the clients who get work for free are often the most demanding.

** Happens again in WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie when the crowd boos a free Music/GreenDay concert and ends up killing the musicians.

* ''{{Zits}}'' had a short storyline where Jeremy is upset because a website he likes hasn't been updated for a while. His father goes from saying he should demand a refund to mocking his sense of entitlement when he finds out the site is free.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' spin-off ''VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero'', Etna asks the Hero Prinny to sell some games and the console she's playing them on, claiming they suck. The prinny points out that she pirated the games and hacked the console.
** Fun note. The console in question is a blue [=PS3=]. (Though given this is the Netherworld, it's likely a Slaystation 3)

* A variation in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' Patrick demands his money back from the Krusty Krab after he didn't get a toy with his meal, completly ignoring the fact that it was SpongeBob who paid for it and not him, even if he did eat the whole thing himself. It's more a case of 'complaining about things someone else has paid for'

Added DiffLines:

** Fans of ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' on Tumbler react to the Something Awful paywall [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUpcl_P9ZTw Part 1]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9cqtaKQLwA Part 2]]. Explanation: ''Dangan Ronpa'' wasn't just being LetsPlay[=ed=] on the forums, it was also being translated into English. When the paywall went up {{lurker}}s lost their best/only source for up to six months at a time and were unwilling to pay $10 to view the forums. On top of that (if I recall correctly) [[spoiler: when the paywall came down Playstation announced they were going to translate the games into English so the Lets Play/translation of the second game (plus the light novel) was cancelled to avoid a lawsuit]].
