** In another game, there was a subversion when it turned out that the partner of [[spoiler: Ron [=DeLite=], Desiree,]] genuinely loved him, despite having definitely looked like a gold digger beforehand

* In ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'', Jumin considers all the women his father (an extremely wealthy business tycoon) has dated to be this. It doesn't help that on Jumin's route, his father's current squeeze tries to manipulate him into marrying his son off to her sister to get them to purchase her failed company. Constantly gushing over Jumin's wealth is also one of the most surefire ways for the player character to lose affection points with him.

* In ''Literature/BridgeOfBirds'', Lotus Cloud is known as "the most expensive woman in China" because she causes all of her suitors to go bankrupt in less than a week trying to please her with constant gifts of pearls and jade. Subverted, however, in that she isn't actually forcing or asking her suitors to give her all these riches; they just can't resist seeing her [[WhenSheSmiles smile]] every time she receives pearls or jade. Subverted even further in that she actually doesn't want pearls and jade because she's greedy but because [[spoiler:they subconsciously remind her of her real name, Jade Pearl, that she had been mind-wiped into forgetting by her current husband]].

* Ruby Elizabeth De Longe from an issue of ComicBook/TheSandman was a particularly ambitious example of this trope (though in fairness, she was also a conflicted person who ''did'' want real love, deep down). Not content with merely finding a good MealTicket, she was determined to basically marry into Fiction500. She had resolved to remain a virgin until she did so, and in the past, she dumped a guy that she really liked after doing a routine credit check on him and deciding he wasn't wealthy enough. [[spoiler:In the end, her efforts were in vain, as she burned to death in a hotel room, still not rich, and still single.]]

Many a gold digger would be happy to marry a man who is old or in bad health, just so long as he'd be so kind as to [[WillAndInheritanceTropes leave at least some of his inheritance]] to his spouse when he dies; if she's a BlackWidow, that could happen much sooner than expected.

process along, but those who ''are'' willing to do so enter BlackWidow territory.

** Sawyer is another male example. He makes a living by having affairs with women who are married to wealthy men, and then stealing their money. Some of his techniques were picked up from Locke's dad.
** Shannon likewise is into wealthy men, and makes a living by conning her rich stepbrother out of his cash.

* Starla in ''Film/{{Slither}}'' is blatantly said to be this in regards to her marriage to Grant. Ironically though, the film portrays ''her'' as the victim in the loveless marriage.
