* The first ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. Lucifer is not impressed by a street performer posing as a fire-and-brimstone preacher, so he gives the man a glimpse of his NightmareFace. The man flees in panic throwing away his collection tin, the money from which is immediately gathered up by an appreciative audience, who then applaud Lucifer's 'act'.

A character has just acquired a vast sum of money. Maybe he won the lottery, inherited a fortune, or knocked over a bank. Instead of safely investing his newfound wealth, buying something nice, or doing anything even remotely useful with it, he instead tosses handfuls of cash at anyone lucky enough to be walking by. Implies the character literally has more money than he knows what to do with.
