* This happens again in ''[[WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017 the reboot of Duck Tales]]. In this case, they quantify Scrooge [=McDuck's=] wealth a bit more, saying that he's a trillionaire and throwing around numbers like 10 million spent on keeping vengeance curses on Scrooge at bay, or 20 thousand on a velvet pillow for his [[spoiler: decoy]] number one dime. He also manages to have businesses in several cities beyond just duckburg as well as several departments such as experimental tech and an energy/utility company. Within his mansion, he has apples that have diamonds in them (presumably for decoration rather than for eating), paintings of his family and exploits all around, a pool, a peacock he lets fly around, and several other valuable artifacts lying around that might make his 1987 counterpart scowl in disapproval. And to top it all off, he still has that famous money bin lying around, though he does less swimming in it these days.

** The ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' tend to get a few of these too. Some are technical qualifiers such as Starfire being an Alien Princess who doesn't typically tap her stuff from her home due to being captured or exiled several times depending on when. However, in the 2000's, when they were just The Titans, they ended up bankrolling themselves this time, so that brought 2 big investors to the team. First was Jesse Quick, who ran her own company and managed to fight crime in her spare time. And second was the former Aqualad who became Tempest. He goes the route of finding sunken treasure to bankroll stuff. So much so they're able to create an enormous hologram of Titans Tower as well as an underground base without breaking a sweat.

* From ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Metal Gear Solid 3]]'', Colonel Volgin, to the point where the US are willing to sacrifice the greatest soldier the world has ever known to get their hands on his money, and he can personally bankroll his own assembly line of doomsday machines. With $100 Billion in 1964 money, which if adjusted for today's economy would be almost $1 trillion dollars, it's easy to see why.

* ''Anime/AnimeGataris'': Arisa's wealth is ''bottomless''. $300,000 worth of anime purchased in overnight is nothing to her. She bragged she could ''buy the school'' if necessary.

:: The above quote is said when he is still ''just starting out'', and he's currently #5 on the Forbes Fictional 15. $1 million at the time is approximately $27 million today; thus, "starting out" and thanks to his family's gold holdings (and his mother's management), Mr. Kane is worth at least $1.6 billion.

** Though they live in a humble house and don't seem to work a steady day job (besides that whole Princess-rescuing gig), the Brothers Mario own: at least one private plane and a submarine (Mario uses them to rescue Daisy in Super Mario Land), a castle (that Mario seized from Wario in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins''), a mansion full of precious gems (''VideoGame/LuigisMansion''), several carts and racetracks (for racing in the various ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' games), places to throw fabulous parties (''VideoGame/MarioParty''), top-of-the-line tennis gear (''VideoGame/MarioTennis''), and near-infinite extra lives thanks to their income stream. In addition, they amass large amounts of gold coins in their travels, a signficant portion of which is invested in their massive extra life reserve.
