* ''TransformersCybertron'' Thunderblast is a power-digger. She flirts first with Starscream and then with Megatron, pursuing them for their prestige and strength. Not that they notice or care beyond using her for their dirty work... Interestingly, Thunderblast is powerful enough to carve out her own path, but prefers to be a digger hanging off of someone else because that way ''she's'' not the one wearing a bulls-eye.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/CraigsWife'': Harriet admits straight up that she married her husband because she wanted a rich household and Mr. Craig had money. Her motives are explained--her father divorced her mother for a second wife, leaving Harriet and her mother and sister with nothing--but she is still a cold and villainous character.

* Two show up in the ''Magic and Malice'' duology by Patricia C Wrede. The one in the first book is a man who is hoping to marry his sister's wealthy ward in order to pay off his debts (Unfortunately, the siblings forgot to tell the girl about this plan, and she elopes with someone else). The one in the second book is a beautiful woman from an impoverished family hoping to get a wealthy husband so she can remain a figure in Society. Her primary target (The male lead) is engaged to someone else (The female lead) by the end of the story. No mention is made of whether or not she snared the other man she was aiming for. The female lead of the duology, despite having started as a street urchin and ending about to be married to a gentleman of means, is not one (If she had been, she would have married the Marquis rather than the title-less gentleman).
