* In ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}'', Kirino (a 14-year-old) has a vast collection of anime and {{Dating Sim}}s; her brother is suspicious about how she could afford it all, since it follows realistic Japanese pricing (equivalent of hundreds of dollars for anime box-sets). It turns out she has a lucrative job as a teen clothing model.

* ''Literature/DonQuixote'': This attitude is showed InUniverse (and deconstructed) by Alonso Quijano. At chapter I Part I we learn that he has acquired a lot of chivalry books (almost three hundred), and if you remember that the [[OlderThanSteam printing-press had been invented in Europe only some years ago]], it's a considerable feat. Later, Alonso Quijano will decide that it would be a great idea to become [[MeaningfulRename Don Quixote]]:

to:

* In ''Series/SexAndTheCity'': [[AllWomenLoveShoes Carrie Bradshaw spends a ''ridiculous'' amount of money on shoes, and wears said expensive shoes pretty much everywhere]]. It´s deconstructed because instead of Carrie's constant shoe-buying being just part of the background of the series, it suddenly becomes a problem when it turns out she has tens of thousands of dollars worth of shoes ... and not enough money to get a mortgage.

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': This the origin of Jonathan (the Scarecrow) Crane's AppropriatedAppelation. Crane spent all of his money on buying books, so he was always very shabbily dressed. As a result, his university colleagues nicknamed him 'Scarecrow'. When he turned to crime, he adopted this as his alias.

to:

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'': Gwent is a recently invented trading card game in a fantasy setting [[spoiler:thanks to interdimensional elf shenanigans]], and Geralt can purchase extremely powerful cards by trading in his real hunting trophies. The game is so popular in-and-out of universe that a mob of angry villagers formed to protest official rule changes, and the game itself is now free-to-play on steam (and just as costly to buy actual cards).
