* PawnStars: Played straight, as occasionally someone will bring in an assortment of things that an older relative collected. Said relative has now passed on, and the family is looking to sell the collection. The problem is that such collections are rarely actually ''worth'' anything...

  • 30rock reference
Added DiffLines:
*One episode of ThirtyRock deals with Jack having to abandon his large secret cookie jar collecton "because the guy with the weird hobby never gets the corner office". (it is explained that Giuliani only became mayor of NY after ditching his doll collection). He does insist you don't have to be weird to have a collection like that though: --> '''Jack''' We never had any cookie jars in my home, because my mother never baked any cookies, 'cause she never felt we deserved any cookies, so obviously it has nothing to do with my childhood --> '''Liz:''' But that cookie jar says "mom" on it. --> '''Jack''' I don't think so; I always viewed it as an upside down "wow"

* Another {{Vocaloid}} example: "Heartbeat Clocktower," "Girl of the Miniature Garden," and "Judgement of Corruption" all feature the character [[HangingJudge Gallerian Marlon]] (KAITO), also known as The Collector, who... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin collects things]]. Specifically, his greatest pride was his collection of dolls that he kept in the theater he built in the middle of the woods.

* Miss Flitworth in ''Discworld/ReaperMan'' has one. ** As does Nanny Ogg, but in a subversion of this trope, ''she'' uses it as a means of extortion towards her numerous relatives. To clarify: if you travel off somewhere, you had best bring back a '''stunning''' gift for her, or your portrait is moved to a less favorable place. Nanny Ogg has a ''very'' extended family, extremely prone to infighting which Nanny encourages as a pastime, and they ''will know'' and ''will take advantage of'' how favorably Nanny regards you.

* The massive collections of sci-fi/fantasy and comic-book tie-ins accumulated by the core cast of ''TheBigBangTheory'' would probably be a male equivalent. It is interesting that when Penny calls Leonard out on his, and he seeks to sell it all off to please her, Sheldon hits back by referring to Penny's own compulsive accumulation of Care Bears, My Little Ponies, et c. The capping instance must be the lonely doctor played by Billy Bob Thornton, who compensates for being single and living with his mother by spending a private practice salary on ''really-high-end'' movie and television tie-ins, filling the whole basement with them to create his Fortress of Solitude.
