* ''VideoGame/ExoptableMoney'' is all about making lots and lots of money, and to what extent people are willing to go to make huge bucks. Up to and including [[spoiler:releasing a virus to kill off the majority of the planet and make money by selling non-working antidotes]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

[[spoiler: This is revealed to be because his [[AbusiveParents scumbag of a father]] threw him out of the house when he was younger and told him not to come back until he had remade the possible millions they had lost riding the coattails of Stan's brother's academic scholarship (Stan had accidentally broken Ford's invention, causing him to be rejected from his dream school).]]

* The defining characteristic of most antagonists in the IndianaJones series.
** In IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade, Walter Donovan seeks the HolyGrail so he can obtain immortality. In the end, greed blinds him from reason and he gets tricked into drinking from a fake grail, which causes him to age rapidly to death. In a perfect example of greed, Elsa Schneider then attempts to take the true grail outside the temple, despite warnings not to cross the seal. In the ensuing chaos, she drops the grail into a chasm and nearly falls in herself, but Indy catches her. The grail ends up on a small ledge and Elsa, consumed by her greed, reaches for it. Her hand comes up just short, which only fuels her desire to keep trying, despite the fact she’s slipping from Indy’s hold. Overcome by her lust for the cup, she stretches too far and Indy loses his grip on her slippery gloved hand. Indy by contrast is able to let go of the grail and thus escapes with his life, though even he was reluctant to give up such a historic find.
