** The only time they had to be still was when in-hiding from the Death Eaters. James took this harder than Lily, though namely because he couldn't be with his friends (which given the subtle implications they were falling apart and how everything went to hell, is much more serious than it sounds.)

** Scrooge's main rival Flintheart Glomgold, who also runs his own company, may show up once in a while trying to one-up Scrooge in a treasure hunt or a difficult adventure, mainly to try and become richer.
** Scrooge's ''other'' rival John Rockerduck does the same, but that's usually because he wants to one-up Scrooge. He too runs his own company, ''and'' is a noted philantropist.

richer. Unlike Scrooge, Glomgold has no morals and will sink to whatever means to beat Scrooge (yes, he is not above murder.)
** Scrooge's ''other'' rival John Rockerduck does the same, but that's usually because he wants to one-up Scrooge. He too runs his own company, ''and'' is a noted philantropist. Unlike with Flintheart, John is just a competitive rival to Scrooge, but the two are still affable (contrast to the mutual intense ''loathing'' Glomgold and Scrooge have to one another.)

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Thanks to being Death's son, and having a privileged position in Death City (Death apparently runs the place, they're clearly rich), Kid could wait for someone else to make him a [[EmpathicWeapon Death Scythe]] to use. Instead, he decides to make one to his own particular specifications, and joins his father's school because it allowed him to help out a group of students in trouble.

He becomes an invaluable ally and friend to the rest of the group of students in trouble.and he himself matures and overcomes his own faults along with helping his partners overcome their shady pasts.)

* Wrestling/MontelVontaviousPorter, "The Highest Paid Free Agent In Sports Entertainment", who was a spoof on [[Film/JerryMaguire Rod Tidwell]] and Terrel Owens. However, he would lose his funds after Smackdown general manager decided not to pay him what was in his contract on account of a really long losing streak. He'd bounce back once the fans [[FaceHeelTurn started feeling sorry for him]], leading to him winning matches again and fulling his half of the contract again.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Harry has ''plenty'' of gold left to him from his parents in his Gringotts vault (inherited from his paternal grandparents, who were presumably old money) but as a kid, he didn't like to rely on that cash. Therefore when he grows up, he takes on the job of full time Auror (Wizard Police). His wife Ginny could have easily stayed at home with their three children, but she decides to become a Quidditch star instead and, once she retires, she keeps working as a [[HotScoop quidditch reporter]].

* Actress [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus]]: Her family owns the venerable Louis Dreyfus Group, a multinational corporation worth twenty billion dollars; the Louis-Dreyfus clan was known in the early 20th century as one of "the five great fortunes of France". Her father, William Louis-Dreyfus, is the chairman of the company and has a personal fortune of three billion dollars. She could have spent her life not doing a damned thing; instead, she's one of the best comic actors on television (noted in the industry for being a quite demanding job), and is one of the few actresses to have anchored two well-regarded but [[Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine very]] [[Series/{{Veep}} different]] sitcoms.

* LordDunsany got so much grief from the assumption that a peer could not be a serious writer that he seriously thought of changing his byline to Edward Plunkett -- but he had built up too much reputation as Lord Dunsany to give it up.

* The Girl from ''Webcomic/AGirlAndHerFed'' is independantly wealthy[[note]]Thanks to (the ghost of) Ben Franklin bringing her stock tips from the future[[/note]], but insists on holding down a real job: As a reporter as the comic starts, and later as a med student. This is actually enforced by Ben, who feels his charges can focus better on higher pursuits when they don't have to worry about day-to-day expenses.

* Bruce Wayne in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' certainly qualifies, even more so than in other adaptations. Though he still has Lucius Fox to do most of the heavy lifting, Bruce is shown several times to be informed and active in the running of his company, catching onto one of his subordinates violating environmental protection laws, interacting congenially with day-to-day employees, and endowing many charitable causes. In the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, his reputation as a playboy is as something he does in his free time, rather than constantly, of the "work hard, play hard" variety.
