* The {{Series/Yeralash}} short "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijBoRu3ifwk Whom to be]]?" is about a boy's family telling him what they wanted to be in his age, only to hear that he wants to be a gangster (UsefulNotes/TheNewRussia in TheNineties was that kind of time). Suddenly, the chief gangster of the neighborhood flies through their window, alight after another bomb in his car, and tells the boy "You better dream about being an astronaut".

* Chains "Damn it feels good to be a robber" from ''VideoGame/{{Payday}}''. It helps that almost all robberies will result in at least one hundred grand in cash (most of which is sent to the swiss banks), ''and the blood of fifty courageous coppers'' on a non-stealth run.

* Brutally subverted in ''VideoGame/SleepingDogs'', life in the Sun On Yee is at first idolized by the likes of Jackie Ma and Wei's friends in the gang. However it cause the once childhoods friends Dogeyes and Winston to violently drift apart ending with [[spoiler: a massacre at Winston's wedding where nobody was spared, including Winston's wife to be Peggy]]. As a succession crisis forces new members like Jackie to be induced, the harsh realities sink for everyone as the ongoing conflicts leads from one massacre to another with civilians constantly caught in the crossfire and people like Jackie unaccustomed to murdering someone. [[spoiler: When Uncle Po dies, Big Smile Lee purges many competitors to his position as the head and has Jackie Ma tortured to death shortly after a TraumaCongaLine and Wei barely survives]].

* ''Film/{{Scarface 1932}}'' deconstructs this. Also applies to the ''Film/{{Scarface 1983}}'' remake with AlPacino, which remains hugely popular to this day with the MisaimedFandom.

** Franklin Clinton of ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA5]]'' is an attempt at {{Reconstruction}}. He's sick of his gangbanging friends because they can't see how stuck-in-a-rut their lifestyle is while he dreams of taking his life to the next level...which means committing more ''sophisticated'' crimes.

** Averted with Vito, the PlayerCharacter of the game, Vito, even before things start going down in the last act, he spent years in prison for stealing gas stamps so he could pay back a loan his mother inherited from her husband, she dies of sickness while he is in jail, his welcome back party ends up with him having to bury a corpse and it turns out everyone save for Joe tried to abuse his trust. By ''VideoGame/MafiaIII'', he is pretty jaded.
