* In ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'', Suitengu's Roppongi Club is this: Due to its outrageously high membership fees, the only people who can get in are the fabulously wealthy, and most of its members are of high prestige around Japan. As it turns out, Suitengu founded the Roppongi Club and cultivated its elite status so he could gather as much of the rich, powerful, and influential people as he could and [[spoiler:kill them all by locking them in the building and bombing it from the inside.]]

* ''Series/FawltyTowers'': Basil Fawlty lived by this trope. He either showed fawning obsequiousness for anybody with money, a title, or a sufficiently fancy car, or contempt for everyone else, especially his hotel's residents, out-of-town work crews staying at Fawlty Towers on business, foreigners, and families with kids. The real fun comes when Basil mistakes the former for the latter, then realizes with horror what he's done.

* Happened in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' to Lucille and Lindsay. After being refused entrance to the trendiest bar/nightclub in town, they retreat to [[strike: Denny's]] [[BrandX Klimpy's]] where a smiling hostess greets them with "Sit anywhere you like!" Lucille is appalled at finding herself in such a non-selective restaurant...

* Oprah Winfrey got this treatment at a certain very exclusive boutique in Zurich, a sales assistant apparently not believing she could afford a thirty thousand dollar handbag. Now, admittedly TheOprahWinfreyShow never really got much airtime outside North America, but the UnfortunateImplications did not go unnoticed.

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', Lumiose City has its own separate currency: style. One becomes stylish by shopping in certain stores, taking the taxi and Gogoat rides, and so on. However, if the player isn't stylish enough, they will be turned away from certain boutiques and restaurants. Services also give discounts to more stylish players.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', it's impossible to buy houses in the cities of Chorrol or Skingrad without a certain level of fame, which makes one wonder how some of the local nobodies ever managed to break into the real estate market. Exaggerated by Voranil, who hosts weekly parties that "everybody who's anybody" attends -- which never includes you, even if you come to lead all the major Guilds and have your praises sung in the streets for saving the world.
