* FatherTed. Ted uncovers a betting scandal revolving around the 'King of the Sheep' contest. As he walks out of the tent where the contest is being held, Dougal remarks 'One thing though, Ted. If Chris has been disqualified, does that mean we don't get the money you bet on him?'

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'', you can help the elder of Koopa Village, Koopa Koot, with various errands, ranging from borrowing an [[DirtyOldMan "exercise"]] book from his neighbor to bringing him a [[SpotOfTea cup of tea.]] Most of the time, his rewards will be 1 coin. Subverted in some cases, where he gives you a card that allows you to play in the casino, or some star pieces. It then becomes kind of heartwarming at the end, though, when his last errand for you is to go save the world.

** The Twelfth Doctor has a horrible SanitySlippage over the course of the 3-part Series 9 finale when he is betrayed and captured by none other than [[spoiler: his own race, having by now ''saved'' Gallifrey '''and''' protected it from their enemies for over 900 years]]! To make matters worse, [[spoiler: his companion Clara gets caught up in this plot and ends up dead]]. He decides to willingly undergo hideous torture in the name of a TragicDream that will likely ''destroy the universe'' if he sees it through. But how can he ''not'' get what he wants after all the good he did that was initially repaid so evilly, after all he's endured? In the end, he is made to understand that this line of thinking is not right, and not only gives up [[spoiler: Clara Oswald for good]], but also [[spoiler: many of his memories of her]] in the name of restoring his best self and repenting for his selfishness.

** A few seasons later in the Series 9 three-part finale, the Twelfth Doctor undergoes a horrifying SanitySlippage in the wake of betrayal, [[spoiler: Clara's death]], and imprisonment in an elaborate torture chamber. It turns out that the BigBad responsible is [[spoiler: '''his own race''', since by this point he has ''saved'' Gallifrey]]; one of their collaborators, [[spoiler: Ashildr/Me]], owes him their life. He willingly endures his torment for [[spoiler: '''billions''' of years, via dying and recreating himself trillions of times over]] rather than giving in to his captors, because he knows it will allow him to [[spoiler: attain the means to save Clara from the grave]] and bring him the peace he craves. The problem is that if he gets what he wants, he risks '''destroying the universe'''; it's a TragicDream born of his grief and rage. In the end, he admits to himself and others that he's become gone too far, and accepts [[spoiler: not only losing Clara but many of his memories of her]] as a fitting punishment for his selfishness and a way to return to his best self.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' story ''The End of Time'' has the Doctor point this out. In the show's 47 year history, the Doctor has saved Earth, other planets, and the universe as a whole countless times, making sacrifice after sacrifice. Every friend he ever makes will die, while he is nearly immortal. He has destroyed his race to save the rest of the universe, making him the last of his kind. He's completely alone in the universe. His reward? None.

* ''Comicbook/MarshalLaw'': The Marshal gets awfully pissed when he finds that he didn't get his kill-fee for offing a lot of supers. His boss, Comissioner Mcgland gives him a number of reasons. Business is going down because there's not as many supers to handle and then money from the kill-fee went towards paying for damages to city property, maintenance of Marshal Law's secret base, and upkeep of supplies. Law doesn't buy any of this, so Mcgland gives him a mission as an alien hunter which will pay 6 times his regular fee.
