* ''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.

* In the novelization of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'', averted by Obi-Wan via JediMindTrick. He takes Boga the dragonmount without paying, but apologizes to the dragon-wrangler (who can't understand Basic anyway), pointing out that it's for the purpose of saving the planet Utapau.

* In ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'', most of the survivor base areas have vendors who will sell you equipment. Despite the fact that the island has been overrun with zombies (thus making money useless), you constantly perform missions to help them, and the fact that they face certain death if you are killed, the vendors still insist on charging you money for their items

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Fluttershy not only doesn't get a discount but is actually ''overcharged'' for produce because the store owner [[JerkassBall is an asshole]], and Twilight Sparkle is unable to hail a cab in Manehattan. Keep in mind both of these folks have ''saved the world'' several times over, are national heroes, and the latter is ''royalty''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} zigzags on this trope. There are a few vendors who will give you very good prices based on your affiliations. For example, Tinker Tom will only sell to you if you're a member of the Railroad, but he offers excellent prices because he's also a member of the Railroad and trying to help you out. Unfortunately, he's got rather limited selection. Other vendors won't give you that great of discounts, even shops you've built yourself at your settlements (though the fact that you get a cut of the profits does help offset this).

** Lampshaded in [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]], where you can yell at the requisitions officer of the ''Normandy'' (and pretty much anyone else who sells equipment during moments of emergency) for charging you for equipment. This turns out to be a justified case, however: the requisitions officer is actually obtaining you items that are not N7 standard issue out of his own pocket. He explains that each time ship docks he sells and buys weapons on his own expense and more licenses and more money he has, better he can supply you with. It's also completely justified during one mission; You can berate a shopkeeper about not giving you stuff, but he ALREADY gave a bunch of stuff to the paid security forces that had been protecting him and various others before you arrived, and he has no way of knowing how helpful you'll be anyway.

Even for more localized examples, where you'd think it'd be more personal: You've driven all the local bandits out of the peaceful hamlet and put their mob's leader to the sword, and even the shopkeepers will actively thank you for saving the place, but they ''still'' charge you full price.

(Ironically, this often turns up in a story where the good guys tend to get HeroInsurance all the time.)
