* Watch Corporal Nobby Nobbs of {{Discworld}} is an expert at this, having been an ArtfulDodger when he was a child. Everyone knows this, and nobody finds it more than mildly annoying at this point (the official Watch procedure for getting money out of Petty Cash is "Go find Nobby and make him give it back"). The climax to [[{{Discworld/Thud}} Thud]] even relies on the assumption that he will have a certain MacGuffin on him, simply because it looked valuable and was in his vicinity for a while.
