*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the four are appalled that a wizard charged them 40,000 Swords to answer a few questions and wanted a cool half million to help Ringo find his mask-breaking amulet. After all, the world may end in a year; isn't it time to quit worrying about making a buck?

* Zigzagged in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''. To combat a dragon that's melting the polar caps and causing global flooding, the heroes have to fly back to civilization and get an industrial-strength fire extinguisher. The merchant doesn't demand payment on the spot (he expresses concern over the flooding himself), but ''does'' say he'll mail them the bill.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': In the ''Warlods of Draenor'' expansion, vendors in your own garrison will charge you full price for their services. Kind of makes your rank of commanding officer feel pretty hollow.

You pay for a lot of stuff here using Garrison Resources, so it's likely that the Gold is being paid to a supplier, with them as intermediaries.)

** Larzuk seems to be aware of this trope in ''Lord of Destruction'', saying that your gold isn't lining his pockets; it's paying for the armour, weapons and medical supplies of a city that is under siege by the forces of Hell.

* In the ''Series/IZombie'' episode [[Recap/IZombieS2E18DeadBeat "Dead Beat"]], Liv, seeking to prevent [[spoiler:Major from turning into a zombie in the city lockup after he's arrested for the Chaos Killer murders]], tries to buy brains from the [[FantasticDrug brain dealer]] Don E. due to her brain supply in the morgue being cut off. Don E. will not budge on the price even after Liv tells him that if she doesn't get the brains, it will cause a ZombieApocalypse, telling her that the threat of that happening is simply more reason for them to pay up.

** Being an adventurer doesn't give you a discount, it [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0122.html increases the prices]]. This is because the GenreSavvy townsfolk are fully aware that adventurers fresh from acquiring loot in a dungeon can afford the inflated prices. This is a LampshadeHanging of the fact that the prices in most ''D&D'' books don't fit the amount non-adventurers make -- your average townsperson gets a gold piece a month, so if they broke their pickaxe would have to save up three months wages for a new one.

* The reason shopkeepers won't give you a discount when you claim to be saving the world is [[http://notalwaysright.com/with-great-retail-power/2528 probably that they've already heard it a dozen times]], as seen on ''Website/NotAlwaysRight''.

** ''VideoGame/CastmlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia'' lampshades, justifies ''and'' subverts it. As much as Jacob the shop owner would like to give Shanoa what she needs for free, he still has to make a living, and considering the village is in the middle of nowhere with Shanoa being one of his only customers in a time of great unrest due to Dracula's imminent return, he can't afford to give her stuff for free. He does, however, give her a discount card after she purchases enough stuff in his shop.
