* ''Literature/TheExecutioner'': In ''War Against the Mafia'', Mack Bolan starts his crusade against the Mob by breaking into a gun store and taking a large amount of firearms and ammunition. However, he leaves behind enough cash to cover what he took, plus the damage to the store. When interviewed in the newspaper, the proprietor says he doesn't consider this a robbery, but rather a transaction that took place while the store was closed.

It is not uncommon for the Noble Shoplifter's companions to give him or her a hard time about it, arguing that the former owners are very likely dead and that priority should be given to the living. They may also argue that there is nothing to stop other groups of scavengers from taking the valuables the Noble Shoplifter leaves behind... in fact, a more unscrupulous member of the Noble Shoplifter's own party may find an excuse to backtrack and do exactly that.

* In 2013, four football players entered a convenience store in New Jersey that appeared open, when in reality the front door's lock had malfunctioned and the store was closed. After figuring out what was going on, the would-be shoppers left the appropriate amount of money on the front counter for the items they took, even flashing their cash at the security camera to make sure they were caught paying. The owner was so impressed by their honesty that she decided not to press charges, and even rewarded them with gift certificates.

* In ''{{WesternAnimation/Home}}'', Tip leaves some money on the counter of a store she grabs some food and drink from, despite there being an alien invasion going on, and the shopkeep almost certainly being hundreds of miles away, like the rest of humanity thanks to the invasion.

* A variation in ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'': all of the shopkeepers who sell magical reagents are present at the shops, but also all happen to be blind. The player has the option of buying as many reagents as they want and paying only 1 gp, but due to the virtue system present in the game, cheating the reagents woman results in a hit to Honesty and Honor, so you're really encouraged to pay full price to trained parrot. The prices are laid out and you can take what you want. Paying extra, exact price, less, or not at all determines if you make the bird's day, have him thank you, call you a cheapskate, or outright attack you respectively. If you steal from him and show up later as a wolf (to whom he can actually speak fluently), he laments that his boss punished ''him'' for it as well. On the flipside, you're also free to just give him some cash without taking anything; you get nothing from it [[VideoGameCaringPotential other than some very genuine and happy gratitude]].
