Parodied in a great number of video-game-based webcomics and other satire. Not to be confused with [[http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=665847 this.]] Nor [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_lzi2cgmzst1qfjjglo8_250_6925.jpg this.]] For a specific enemy that you seek out because it carries a ''lot'' of money (or other reward), see PinataEnemy, with tougher variants being {{Metal Slime}}s. For the general case of monsters dropping implausible items, see ImpossibleItemDrop.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'' has the boss Gemesaur King, which is basically Helmasaur King from A Link to the Past, but with rupees buried in it. So every time you hurt it, you get rupees. Lots of them. It's a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot money golem dinosaur]].

** ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'' averts it even harder; not only do enemies only drop relevant items, but when you do find money it's often in useless local currencies from countries that no longer exist due to the war, and has to be exchanged at a bank to be useful.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX''. Monsters will never drop money, but instead, you loot part of their corpses that can be sold. Although this only earns you a pittance, most of your combat income will be from the missions and assignments said combat completes.

* Justified in ''VideoGame/Conception2ChildrenOfTheSevenStars''. The GP you earn every battle isn't conventional money, it's "Glow Points", a merit system that can be cashed in at Fort City for better gear.

** The game will keep track of your progress through the game and enemies will drop things you lack the most. Such as if you're low on health they tend to drop Green Herbs. Ammo if you keep blasting everything you see. And more money if you're low on cash.
