Added DiffLines:

* In TabletopGame/YuGiOh greed is a very common theme and almost always relates to drawing cards. There is an entire, fairly large series of cards that are pots and jars all relating to the theme of greed. [[MemeticMutation Pot of greed]] is the most obvious and well-known example
** Then there's [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Goblin_of_Greed Goblin of Greed]]; the titular goblin who hordes the aforementioned pots and jars and throughout the course of many cards details how he went from riches to rags and everything in between.
** There's also a card aptly named "Greed" which details the downfall of such a thing as at the end phase of every turn the player takes damage for every card the drew (which is the constant greed in context of the game)

* Mr. Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is almost always trying to scam his [[WithFriendsLikeThese friends]] out of their money or other things, or forcefully take them. It's most noticeable in the episode "Let's Play Gangster Poker", where he actually ''threatens to shoot them to death'' if they don't give him money. In addition, Episode 128 shows that he has no problem with traumatizing Quack Quack so he can trick [[TheDitz Stumpy]] into giving him... four cents.

** And much later, in the final season, a rival distributor offers Walter, Jesse, and Mike $5 million each for a shipment of methylamine they lifted. This is more money than Walter could ever spend, and an order of magnitude more than he originally intended to make, but turns down the offer so that he can keep cooking meth in order to make even more money.

** In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', this is the reason Max turns coat on America and sides with the Soviets. The myths of Akator and legends of streets made of gold start making him think he could be richer than Howard Hughes (a comparison he makes to Indy himself). He even tries to convince Indy to side with him; he should have know that Indy was more than willing to oppose anyone who thought like this as far as archaeology was concerned.

* Beni from ''Film/TheMummy1999'' ends up serving Imhotep due to his greed and [[DirtyCoward cowardice]]. Imhotep was just going to kill him, but decided he could be useful after hearing him speak Hebrew ("the language of the slaves"). Beni is easily tempted when Imhotep promises rich rewards while offering him a handful of gold and jewels.
