In a musical, may be the inspiration for a MoneySong.



A SubTrope of FantasySequence. If the character is pretending to be rich (and not just imagining it), then the trope is MockMillionaire.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Given that he's NotInItForYourRevolution, Vila will start going on about this trope every time the rebels are seeking a MacGuffin that will make them rich or enable them to overthrow the Federation (it's TemptingFate of course, as FailureIsTheOnlyOption). It's often pointed out that he'd quickly get bored and start [[MasterOfUnlocking looking for something to break into]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Homer Simpson has a few of these.these, frequently subject to FantasyTwist.



** He imagines what his life would be like if he robbed the Kwik-E-Mart, and sees himself sitting in a rocking chair outside a huge mansion, wearing a top hat, smoking cigars, [[HighClassGlass monocle]] and a sash saying "Senator", while Marge go-go dances in a swimsuit next to him. By the time he decides he will rob the place, he has already done his shopping and is driving away from it.

** Lisa had one, briefly -- when the FBI informed the family that Homer had stolen the trillion-dollar bill, Marge says it's going straight in the college fund. Lisa -- this was before much of her development into the hippie of the family -- yells "Who needs college?! We're trillionaires! Let's buy dune buggies!"

* ''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.
