* ''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.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Reign}}'' has an optional rule allowing player characters to squander their personal Wealth scores in exchange for ExperiencePoints. The game is also about player-run Companies - governments, businesses, or other institutions - which have their own Treasure score. Thanks to the abstract and nonlinear nature of money in the game, you can withdraw fairly sizable amounts of Wealth from even a moderate Treasure score without decreasing the Company's Treasure... once or twice, precluding endless Company-funded benders.
* ''[[TabletopGame/ProseDescriptiveQualities Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies]]'' has two kinds of temporary forte (character attributes): Ephemera and, er, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Temporary Fortes]]. Grand treasures, favors, and other rewards often become these as making them permanent would give a character a significant extra boost for free. As such, these temporary fortes ''are'' going to go away no matter what the character does, so players are strongly advised to find some way to blow them that advances the plot or is at least entertaining, often providing the GM with story hooks for later in the process.
