:: The heroes are allowed to leave his cave in exchange for getting the treasure back. To ensure their loyalty, Niddhoggr replaces their hearts with rubies... except Senna, who would need a diamond, and he wasn't about to pay ''that'' much.

* ''ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' - Old! Loki engineers the creation of one as part of a complicated plan (time travel and narrative causality were involved). After getting themself and [[spoiler: young Odin]] into debt, they steal a hoard of gold from a shape-shifter, who places a truth-curse on the gold with his dying breath. The man who ends up with the gold [[MoreThanMindControl has his inner greed]] brought out by the curse, and ends up sleeping on it until the curse physically turns him into a dragon.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms The Sleeping Beauty]]'': One of the EngagementChallenge tests is for the princes to find some way of sneaking a mildly-cursed item into a dragon's hoard without harming the dragon. The dragon agreed to this because 1) all the items are gold, 2) he's [[AntiMagic immune]] to all the curses, and 3) a reputation for having a cursed hoard should cut down on treasure hunters bothering him.

* While dragons in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' are not lounging on a bed of Septims, there is usually a well-stocked treasure chest coincidentally sitting near a dragon roost.

Also, Paarthurnax claims that the Dragonborn got a few draconic instincts with their dragon soul, including hoarding, hence the KleptomaniacHero tendencies.

* In Creator/JoWalton's ''Tooth and Claw'' (an Creator/AnthonyTrollope pastiche [[InSpace With Dragons!]]), dragons have a natural instinct to sleep on piles of hoarded gold. Unfortunately, one cannot do this and invest one's gold in the stock market at the same time.

* The English chronicler Thomas of Walsingham recorded an event that supposedly took place in 1344 on the Welsh border in Herefordshire: A "Saracen doctor" captured a "serpent" with a spell and before he left mentioned that the serpent had a cave full of treasure. Some locals from Hereford set out to dig up the cave and salvage the unguarded hoard. "So they gathered together there for several nights, until the Earl's retainers got wind of the matter; then the Hereford men were arrested and committed to prison. The Earl acquired a considerable treasure form this business." It stands to reason the diggers had found a real treasure (or possibly a tomb with grave goods), and the "serpent" was attached to the story because it seemed logical.

* ''Film/TheJungleBook'' (1994): Early in the movie, the monkeys lure Mowgli to a [[TreasureRoom forgotten treasure vault]] in their lost city. A huge python sneaks up to Mowgli and attacks him; Mowgli falls into a nearby pool but is able to fight his way out with a bejeweled knife he had picked up moments before because he realized its usefulness. The same knife later arouses the covetousness of the ruthless Captain Boone, who in the movie's climax forces Mowgli to lead him to the treasure chamber with the intent to loot it. Boone is attacked by the python and topples into the pool; having already stuffed his backpack with [[DeathByMaterialism heavy but useless golden stuff, he sinks to the bottom]] where he is finished off by the python.
