* In ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' you become one of these to the Devil himself! In order to pay for a gambling debt where the protagonists bet their souls, they have to run around Inkwell Isle to find the Devil's runaway debtors and recover the Soul Contracts out of them. Of course, they are not happy to see you and thus you have to fight them. [[spoiler: It can be subverted at the end, however, if you chose to fight the devil and beat him, Cuphead and Mugman will proceed to burn the soul contracts, freeing the bosses from their debts and they will throw a party in your honor]].

* Zigzagged in ''WebVideo/NepotismAdventureSeries'': the first tax collector was just too ''stupid'' to be evil, didn't collect a single bit, and choked to death on a marble. The ''second'' tax collector played this to the hilt, though, taking an entire town to court when they refused to pay taxes. [[spoiler:They burn him at the stake in response.]] Anyway, that's why there's been no taxes collected in Equestria since. Not that that stops Rarity from suggesting Twilight do so.

** {{Invoked}} in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' by Xadhoom: she has [[PhysicalGod godlike powers]], and, in her own words, the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Evronians]], having conquered and razed her homeworld and transformerd [[spoiler: almost]] all her people into [[SlaveMook Coolflames]] while she conduced the experiment that gave her the powers, owe her her homeworld and people... So she took the name Xadhoom, meaning "Creditor" in her language, and started exterminating the Evronians. A virtual cookie if you can guess what has just happened when she finally declares "Closed accounts".

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UjpmT5noto Another episode]], on [[TheTroubleWithTickets local fine penalties]], talks in part about the "private probation companies" cash-strapped local governments use to collect those fines. They tack on extra charges (which represent the cost of charging those fines), so that debtors will end perpetually on debt.

* Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver once did [[https://youtu.be/hxUAntt1z2c an episode on debt buyers who specialized in debt past the]] StatuteOfLimitations (thus, not collectable through the courts). Part of the episode focused on the debt collectors they use, which often are virtually unregulated and use tactics such as harassment, threats and name-calling.

* SpeedGrapher: Suitengu kills a man for failing to pay his 10,000,000 yen debt in full... over a discrepancy of ''a single 1,000 yen bill''. Turns out that his kid was fiddling with the money after his father got a little too obsessive with paying the debt. [[spoiler:This is a serious hint that Suitengu does NOT worship capitalism, as he prevented a relatively reliable debt collector from doing further business]].
