** To say nothing of the ever helpful [[BadassNormal Speedwagon]], who, in between parts 1 and 2, makes it big as an oil tycoon in America. He becomes so successful that he establishes the Speedwagon Foundation, which while primarily having a focus on medical research and wild animal and plant protection, also has a "supernatural research department" which looks into, among other things, Stand users and Vampires; the foundation provides the entire Joestar lineage with all the information and supplies they need for the better part of the next ''century'', meaning Speedwagon's legacy as a supporting character lives on all the way until the end of part 6.

The Speedwagon Foundation created portable, weaponised UV-lamps in the 1930's, has provided [[spoiler:submarines]] for the Joestar descendants ''twice'', and looked after [[spoiler:Holly]] with some of the finest doctors in the world, at no expense to the Joestars.

** The Next Gen episode "The Most Toys" brings us collector Kivas Fajo. While his wealth is not specifically mentioned in the show, he has enough to synthesize large amounts of two exceptionally rare, dangerous, and difficult compounds to set in motion his plan to steal Data. He also has perhaps the largest collection of rare and unique artifacts in existence.

* Andrew Ryan from ''{{VideoGame/Bioshock}}'' fits perfectly for this trope. He earned an immeasurable amount of wealth, allowing him to build a whole town underwater to create an independent society of free individuals in an record time without anybody notice. [[CrapsackWorld It doesn't work out well]], but it's still impressive.
