* Creator/AndersonCooper, who was born into ''obscene'' wealth and privilege: his mother is Gloria Vanderbilt, which besides making him part of the venerable Vanderbilt clan (i.e. [[BlueBlood the closest thing the US has to nobility]]), makes him, well, the son of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_Vanderbilt Gloria Vanderbilt]]. He went to school and became a journalist by going to Myanmar, then in the midst of an uprising against the military government, on his own with a fake press pass and interviewing youth protesters, producing what amounted to freelance reports. He now routinely travels to war-torn and/or disaster-stricken nations to directly speak to those affected. And he seems to genuinely care, too.

He's also stated that he's actually ''disinherited'' from the family fortune because Gloria wanted to teach him the value of having a work ethic and earning your own money.

* ''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.

* Divya Katdare from ''RoyalPains'' is a member of a wealthy, traditional Indian family from England (they summer in the Hamptons--that's how you ''know'' they're ludicrously rich: they not only use "summer" as a verb, they cross the Atlantic to do it). She goes ahead and becomes a physician's assistant for [=HankMed=], all the while hiding it from her parents.
* ''{{Everwood}}''[='s=] Dr. Brown, whose personal fortune amassed as a world-renowned neurosurgeon is large enough to set up his own private medical practice, free of charge.
* Patrick Jane of ''TheMentalist'' was once a minor celebrity, and retains a lot of money. He casually continues unruly behaviour in court as he racks up hefty fines (he keeps it up until he ends up with a full $16,000), and buys a pony as a gag gift.

* Skye Stark - yes, [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD that Skye]] - from ''Fanfic/SometimesIHateTheLifeIMade'' is the only daughter of one of the richest men in the world. She needn't ever do anything worthwhile. What does she do with her life? First, she becomes and anti-government hacker trying to hold S.H.I.E.L.D. to account, then she becomes a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent herself. The whole premise of the fic is that she is willing to pretend to be a supervillain siding with Ultron in the hope of saving lives.
* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Silver Spoon's father Silver Ax/Tongue was this when he was younger, being in the Royal Guard despite his wealth. He retired, but comes out of it during the Changeling invasion.
* In ''Fanfic/TarnishedDiamonds'', Silver Bullet, Silver Spoon's father, is a royal guard despite the family being filthy rich. This was directly inspired by the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' example above, as the two creators are friends.

Most of her conflict with others comes from ''them'' not living up to ''her'' high standards, instead of the other way around.

Most of her conflict with others comes from ''them'' not living up to ''her'' high standards, instead of the other way around. She's also hinted that she intends to take over and reform the Schnee Corporation in the future, which while it isn't necessarily evil, is known to have some unsavory business policies and practices.
-->'''Weiss''': My father was not the start of the Schnee name... and I refuse to allow him to be the end of it.
