* The major villains of ''VideoGame/Persona 5'' correspond to the SevenDeadlySins. The fifth major boss of the game is fast food company CEO Kunikazu Okumura, and he embodies Greed: he makes his employees work long hours and in unsanitary conditions, with the bottom line being his sole priority. He also puts his daughter [[LonelyRichKid Haru]] up for an ArrangedMarriage with a douchey fiancee who's the son of a member of the Diet in order to expand into politics (to the point at which even the business is just a stepping stone), and chooses to ignore the fact that she's suffering from it. His [[EldritchLocation Palace]] is a giant space station that encompasses his greed, and his Shadow Self is Mammon, the demon classically tied to the sin.

** While Ling Yao has nobler beliefs than the previous example, he embodies some of these qualities as well, having goals such as becoming emperor and obtaining immortality, but being absolutely against sacrificing his followers or letting them sacrifice themselves for him. [[spoiler:This serves as foreshadowing as to why he ends up becoming the second Greed]].

** There's also Junya Kaneshiro, a {{Yakuza}} boss who blackmails teenagers for money, and while he represents the sin of Gluttony (since, unlike Kunikazu, Kaneshiro simply wants more money, and doesn't have any other ambitions), some had theorized that his sin was {{Greed}}. His Palace is a bank, and when you fight against his Shadow Self, Baal, you can distract him by offering up a rare item.

* 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 ''Art/TheLastSupper'', Judas is identified by the small bag he is gripping, either indicating the money he accepted to betray Christ or the Apostles' treasury from which he is stealing. Either way, the bag acts as a reminder why Judas is framed in darkness apart from the other Apostles.

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': Torbjörn organized the very first expedition into areas fallen to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt in 90 years because Old World books are extremely valuable and he figures he can make a lot of money by officially sending a few people there to do research, ask them to pick up any books that look in good enough shape while they are there, and bring them back so they can be sold on the black market.
