* Former [[Wrestling/DragonGate Toryumon Mexico]], UWA, Wrestling/{{Chikara}}, Wrestling/{{CMLL}}, Wrestling/{{N|ational Wrestling Alliance}}WA ([[TheLongList and others]]) mid carder and Wrestling/{{TNA}} {{jobber}}, the gold chain brandishing Rainmaker, Okada Kazuchika, who got tired of being sent all over the world by Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling and decided to help [[PowerStable Chaos]] takeover (which earned him a lot of money). Not that his work rate decreased since making big money but there's a reason his finishing move was dubbed [[MsRedInk red ink.]]

* Wresting/{{SHIMMER}} and SHINE menace, Made In Sin have ditzy tendencies but tend to be ruthlessly effective at anything they set their minds too and were at least part of Valkyries highjacking of the latter promotion. They also like to think themselves [[LadyOfWar high class ladies]](Allysin Kay especially).

* 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.
