* After the [[EarthShatteringKaboom destruction of Krypton]] in ManOfSteel, Zod and his crew spend the next 30 years searching for the long abandoned Kryptonian space colonies, hoping to find other survivors. While they find no other living Kryptonians (except the [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} one]] on the Earth), they manage to scavenge equipment such as weapons, armour [[spoiler: and the Black Zero, a Kryptonian [[{{Terraform}} terraforming device]] they later use to attempt to transform Earth into a new Krypton.]]

Contrast NobleShoplifter. In a CosyCatastrophe, this character is likely to be TheScrounger. If multiple groups come into conflict, you'll have an ArchaeologicalArmsRace on your hands.

"Scavenging" tends to include stealing as well, and Disaster Scavengers are capable and willing to steal anything that isn't nailed down or on fire, even if it's vital to beating the BigBad or [[CosmicKeystone restoring the world]]. The result is that they end up making things worse by creating mistrust and animosity, hampering any efforts to rebuild their community and set the world right, dooming themselves and others to dying in droves.

* In ''VideoGame/TheReckoning'', small parties of low level units named "Scavengers" travel endlessly back and forth between points of interests and castles / towns (they're basically the mod's version of villagers from [[VideoGame/MountAndBlade the unmodded game]]). It's also used as a gameplay point: exploring said points of interest allows to gather supplies, which can then be sold or exchanged for troops.

->''"…did you ever try to put a broken piece of glass back together? Even if the pieces fit, you can’t make it whole again the way it was. But if you’re clever, you can still use the pieces to make other useful things. Maybe even something wonderful, like a mosaic. Well, the world broke just like glass. And everyone’s trying to put it back together like it was, but it’ll never come together in the same way."''

* In ''[[Literature/EndersGame Earth Afire]]'' the survivors of the ''El Cavador'' (destroyed in ''Earth Unaware'' by the Formic ship) temporarily sign on with a "crow" ship salvaging the wreckage from another battle between AsteroidMiners and Buggers. On their first wreck they are attacked by less scrupulous "vultures" and barely escape.

* Bat from ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' fit this trope for the beginning of the series. Despite being a RunningGag for the first couple of episodes, the kid grows out of this character trait and becomes Kenshiro's {{Sidekick}}.

* Archaeologists studying ruined castles often learn as much from examining the older buildings in nearby villages as they do looking at the site itself, as local residents invariably helped themselves to the rubble for their own construction projects.
