* A much slower version in ''Film/TheInformant'', where Mark admits to having [[spoiler: stolen $1.5 million from the company. Which later becomes $3 million, then $5.5 million, until he's finally convicted for stealing $8 million. At the very end, he's up for parole, and he mentions to one of the agents how bad he feels about [[DiggingYourselfDeeper stealing that $11.5 million.]] ]]

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4238196/26/Harry-Potter-and-the-Marauders-of-the-Mind Harry Potter and the Marauders of the Mind]]'' Harry ritually creates new bodies for the spirits of his parents, Remus and Sirius. The latter two end up looking younger than their death ages.
-->'''Remus:''' Do you think I want to look like this? No one's going to take me seriously! It took ''years'' for me to look old enough for people to stop asking me why I was skipping school whenever I went out during the day. Now I've got to go through it all again!\\
'''James:''' Nonsense, Moony. You look at least twenty. Okay, nineteen. Maybe eighteen in bad light when they can't see the gray in your hair.

-->'''Plagg''': You guys were taking forever and I was hungry. It was only one cube. (''Adrien and Juleka look at Plagg.'') Okay, okay. It was two. (''Adrien raises an eyebrow.'') Three? (''Juleka tilts her head.'') You might need more cheese.

--> You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public then buys your bull.
