If the character gets a financial windfall, then it'll disappear or turn out to be depreciated by RidiculousExchangeRates. If they get the supermodel's phone number, then they'll lose it. If they gain a seat of power, then they'll be forced to give it up. Family oriented series can have the variant of the parents putting the money away for the kids' post-secondary education, which means it will not be touched again until the kids are enrolled.

* ''Franchise/LupinIII'' doesn't have to worry about StatusQuo when it comes to their financial situation, they can be living in an expensive hotel one episode, and living in a trailer the next. But Lupin and his crew still have the uncanny tendency to lose every big score minutes after they get it, or have it turn out to be [[ArtifactOfDoom something they're better off not getting their hands on]]. As Lupin is a kleptomaniac of titanic proportions, all he does is shrug it off and seek the next heist.

* Even when they succeed in their various criminal activities, the {{Trailer Park Boys}} usually end up blowing the money in a matter of days or weeks, forcing them to come up with next season's get-rich-quick scheme.

* ''ConanTheBarbarian'' lives his life like this. He may find great riches in one book, but he'll spend or lose them quickly and be broke again by the time the plot calls for the next tomb to be robbed. (Unlike the RPG heroes who followed in his footsteps, he didn't spend his loot on better gear that he could use to loot bigger tombs, ad nauseam.)
