* Most of the main plot of ''VideoGame/Persona5'' is about a group of teenagers rebelling against the corrupt adults of society by stealing their "Treasure" or Hearts, the source of their cruelty. Of course, they do so by going into their mental images of the world, donning Phantom-thief type uniforms, and battling Shadows, which take on the form of Personas in this game.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', [[MeaningfulName Gentleman]] [[GentlemanThief Jim Stacey]], Master Thief of the ThievesGuild, offers a set of quests in this vein. All of the targets are wealthy and corrupt, and the items you steal are directly related to their acts of corruption. (Such as a forged land deed that would give a wealthy plantation owner the land of a widow or a slaver's ring purchased with the profits of his slavery business.)

A KarmicThief will never steal from those who are poor and honest. However, unlike a thief who is JustLikeRobinHood, a KarmicThief is not interested in charity through giving away all their ill-gotten-gains to the poor.
