* King Midas from Greek Mythology. When he offers hospitality to a Satyr of the Greek god Dionysus, Dionysus rewards him by granting him any wish he pleases. King Midas wishes for the power to turn everything into gold, and King Dionysus grants it. At first, Midas is happy and overjoyed, turning everything in sight into gold. However, he soon finds out he he can't eat nor drink, for anything he tries to swallow also turns to gold. Eventually, he turns his daughter into gold by accident, leading him to beg for Dionysus to take back his wish and reverse everything, to which Dionysus obliges.

* Pictured above is "Agent Orange", real name Larfleeze, "leader" of the [[GreenLantern Orange Lantern Corps]] in TheDCU. In the emotional spectrum, Orange represents selfishness and greed, and Agent Orange is the greediest creature to ever live. True to form, he's the only true member of the corps; the others are all spirits of the people he killed in his constant search for '''''more'''''.

* The ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' franchise always has someone who wants more and are willing to do anything to get what the want. Sometimes, it catches up to them. Other times, [[KarmaHoudini they get away with it.]]
* Used on the ''players'' in ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2''. Sure, you could reach the escape zone with the bare minimum needed to complete the heist, but why not go back and grab the extra loot for even more money? There's always someone who will try to grab extra loot when it is not worth it and either they go down and are taken into custody or the whole team is taken down trying to help out, causing a TotalPartyWipe and everyone getting nothing for their troubles.
