* Rocky Balboa's primary occupation at the very beginning of the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' series. The 'evil' part is averted when Rocky actually attempts to use reason and compassion in dealing with a debtor (and in keeping Paulie from going into the business).

*The first person the four encounter on their return to C'hou in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' is the Magic Taxman (and no, [[GeorgeHarrison George]] isn't responsible for him). Initially he's a small, slight, Wally Cox-like man with a briefcase who politely introduces himself and requires an entry tax from the four... that amounts to one-quarter of the magic amongst them. When they scoff and refuse, he employs Penalty Methods and turns into a giant purple monster that grabs John and tries to eat him. Driven off, he promises to return to the four in ten days with much harsher Penalty Methods if they continue to refuse to pay up. This promise is a continual worry to the four, and they never do come up with a way to get rid of him (though after five or six days several of them are so disgusted with what's been going on, and the way their freedom is being abused as a result of their magic, that they're willing to give up their magic to pay the tax).

** [[Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens Several decades later]], Han had to put up with another one in the form of a young, outer-space equivalent of a ViolentGlaswegian, named Bala-Tik, an Agent of a crime cabal called The Guavian Death Gang. However, the appearance of some Rathtar monsters Han was hauling put a stop to that.

** A daily quest for the Tillers in ''Pandaria'' has you playing the role once again for four of the villagers, but two of them at random will always say they don't have enough, you can either threaten them to get them to pay in full or offer to cover a little bit for you. The money you make back from completing the quest more than compensates helping them out, so threatening them is something done out of malice.

* In ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'', you get to step into the shoes of one in the "Debt Collector" sidequest, where you collect debts for the Garrett Twins of the Atomic Wrangler. While you're encouraged not to kill the targets since you can't recollect on a corpse, you still primarily rely on threats and intimidation. Of course, you can have two of them try to work off the debt as a gigolo as part of another sidequest or have them point you to a cave filled with loot as compensation.
