* Tony Stark in the MarvelCinematicUniverse. It was estimated that his suits alone already cost billions of dollars, but as of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', he's personally footing the bill for the Avengers as a team, complete with a massive base of operations and several {{Cool Jet}}s.

** 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 (LuigisMansion), several carts and racetracks (for racing in the various MarioKart games), places to throw fabulous parties (MarioParty), top-of-the-line tennis gear (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.

* From ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', Petey, per the page quote. It helps that, for all intents and purposes, Petey ''is'' [[DeusEstMachina a god.]] Even if you discount the whole "HiveMind of gigantic ships" thing, he's still the owner of the biggest warship manufacturing complex in the whole galaxy, as well as its entire output. Very few can claim their MegaCorp unofficially owns the Milky Way galaxy.

When they need to hire a police force quickly due to a scheduling mix-up, the police chief has some difficulty getting them to suggest a price, because they just ''don't care''. --->'''Chief:''' This negotiation seems odd to me. What would you say if our bid came out to a billion quadrillion kilo-credits?\\ '''Massey:''' I would caution you about accepting that much money all at once. Having that much money means needing a major military power to watch your back.\\ ''[beat]''\\ '''Chief:''' But... ''you'' actually ''have'' that much money?\\ '''Massey:''' I'm sorry, did I blink?

* From ''Manga/DeathNote'', L Lawliet has a hotel built solely to house (and disguise) a heavily secured task force headquarters, pays for everyone on the task force's life insurance, hands them gadget belts, can afford to hire a professional con man and an international thief, and still has enough left over that [[spoiler: his successor]] can just pour a waterfall of one-dollar bills out the top of a building.

** In ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'', SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor, since TheEighties. At the time, writers finally decided to literally CutLexLuthorACheck and made him incredibly rich through making money off his genius. He can also budget in plans to defeat Comicbook/{{Superman}}. Lois Lane calculates Luthor's income and determines that he won't stop to pick up a $100 bill from the ground, because it's not worth one second of his time.

Fixing a typo
** Also subverted with Collin. He doesn't have to work another say in his life sure, but he can only afford the bare minimum he needs. Not that he seems to mind.

** Philip J. Fry gains such wealth (for only one episode before losing everything), buying out entire auctions on a whim didn't seem to make a dent, nor did shooting skeet with the Mona Lisa. That's in addition to the time he and Bender got $1 every time one of their Popplers was sold: 198 billion were sold around the world.

** Philip J. Fry gains such wealth (for only one episode before losing everything), buying everything) due to the tiny amount of money he had left in his savings account when he was frozen accumulating 1000 years worth of interest. Buying out entire auctions on a whim didn't seem to make a dent, nor did shooting skeet with the Mona Lisa. That's in addition to the time he and Bender got $1 every time one of their Popplers was sold: 198 billion were sold around the world.

* UncleScrooge of DuckTales has a towering building he calls his "money bin" full of money. He swims, skis, and otherwise plays around in it. This isn't even the sum of all his money, just his liquid assets - he also owns a large number of companies. And he earned it all square! Ironically, despite his opulent mansion, he is also quite the penny-pincher, and doesn't like spending any more than is absolutely necessary.
