* Edgar Oinkie from ''AnarchyReigns'' amassed a fortune from black market dealings. He's described as the worst type of "new money" - rude, loud, uncouth, short tempered, violent, and gluttonous.

* In ''Series/DowntonAbbey'', this is played with in the case of Mathew and Isobel Crawley, who come into money and status ''very'' suddenly when Mathew is pronounced as the heir of the Earl of Grantham and moves to Downton Abbey; the show basically shows ''why'' this trope exists with how many weird new customs the two must adjust to in order to fit in with the noble Crawley family. The trope is played perfectly straight, though, with Richard Carlisle, who frequently betrays his bourgeois origins with his lack of propriety and manners, and contempt for the household staff - and completely averted with Mathew's fiancee Lavinia, a daughter of a SelfMadeMan who is one of the sweetest, politest characters on the show, and thus fits in perfectly at Downton.

* In ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}'' by Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt, Seth becomes a [[ReconstructedTrope reconstruction]]. Many people think that he's an irritating upstart, who spends an insane amount of money on women, and the OldMoney generally despise him. And it does not help that he can be unnecessarily mean and proud. But it soon becomes clear to the rader, that there is more depth to him than that, and in the end, [[spoiler: he becomes happily married to a Girl from än OldMoney family.]].

** Also played with by Lady Catherine de Burgh, who is a member of the landed gentry and of old money, and fancies herself a classy BlueBlood -- and yet is rude, ill-mannered, snobby and, compared to her (untitled) nephew, completely lacking in class as much as any stereotypically Nouveau Riche character. The point clearly being made is that a fancy title and the length of time someone's family has had their money has no bearing on a person's character.
** The one example that might play it straight are Mrs. Elton (and Mr. Elton, who becomes rich by the marriage) in ''Literature/{{Emma}}''. She is overfamiliar and self-important and constantly brags of how wealthy her sister's family is, which drives Emma--and everyone else in Highbury society--nuts. Given that the rest of her work tends to favor the SelfMadeMan, it's safe to assume that Mrs. Elton would be obnoxious no matter how old the money was.

* Some of the etiquette expected at today's classical concerts would have condemned modern audiences as this by the nobles who heard these works at their premiere. Concerts were intended as a place for the upper classes to socialize. Sometimes the audience's chatter would even drown out the orchestra, much to the annoyance of the conductor. In a letter, one 19th century nobleman complained about a commoner who sat quietly listening to a concert, calling him a slack jaw yokel. Bringing pastries to eat during the performance would have also been considered perfectly acceptable.

It wasn't until Creator/RichardWagner began staging his grand operas that silence at concerts was expected; it is perhaps significant that Wagner was from a distinctly middle-class background (the son of a clerk and a baker's daughter).

* In the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Disney Ducks]] and [[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse Mickey Mouse]] Comic Universes, whenever the Beagle Boys or Peg-Leg Pete become rich (usually through illegal means) they will usually become this. Good examples are CarlBarks' "The Case of the Sticky Money" and Romano Scarpa's "The Lentils of Babylon" in the formers' case. [[StatusQuoIsGod It's always temporary.]]

* Happened in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', which also spoofed ''RomeoAndJuliet''. With a Cave-Duck Romeo (who had been adopted into Scrooge's "old-money" family) and a modern duck Juliet (whose family had just won the lotto).
** Also done with a one-off character in another episode, a homeless man who found a priceless painting. He buys his way into party after party, eating all the hors d'oeuvres he can get his hands on.
