* ''VideoGame/Uncharted2AmongThieves'' half-quotes this trope in the subtitle, and is what separates Nate from his opponents in the franchise as a whole; Nate isn't in it for the money or power but more for the journey and adventure. In this game Elena quotes the trope directly in response to Nate saying that he has no choice but to rescue Chloe from the borderline psychotic Lazarevic.
