* ''Literature/TheTwelveChairs'' / ''Literature/TheLittleGoldenCalf'': This is [[MagnificentBastard Ostap Bender]]'s motivation in both books he appears in. The third and final part of ''The Little Golden Calf'' is actually a deconstruction: even after Bender gets his long-desired wealth, it turns out to be near-useless in the Soviet Union, where he can't be openly rich, while goods and services are mostly gained for government favors, not money.

* One storyline in ''Webcomic/RobAndElliot'' features the titular characters earning 10 million dollars in merchandising fees. While they wait for their residuals to arrive they fantasize about throwing money around like confetti, rolling around in piles of cash and tossing wads of dollar bills at each other like snowballs...only for their fantasy to immediately be cut short by the arrival of a lone check for the money.
