* In the first ''Film/SpiderMan'' movie, Peter needs a certain amount of money to buy a new car and impress MJ. Luckily, that's exactly how much he can win by lasting three minutes with Bonesaw in the steel cage. Since he knocks Bonesaw out in [[ExactWords less than that]], the promoter decides to give him a fraction of the promised reward.
%%* ''Film/{{Dodgeball}}'' plays with this one a bit.

* An inversion of this trope is found in the "Round Springfield" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. The radio station tells Lisa it would play the songs of the late Bleeding Gums Murphy if they actually had a copy of the music. The comic book shop has the album for $250, and when Lisa says that Murphy has just died and she needs the record for a tribute, Comic Book Guy raises the price to $500. Bart happens to have $500 from a lawsuit settlement, and when he sees how upset his sister is, he buys the record for her.

"Round Springfield" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Springfield": The radio station tells Lisa it would play the songs of the late Bleeding Gums Murphy if they actually had a copy of the music. The comic book shop has the album for $250, and when Lisa says that Murphy has just died and she needs the record for a tribute, Comic Book Guy raises the price to $500. Bart happens to have $500 from a lawsuit settlement, and when he sees how upset his sister is, he buys the record for her.



* Another inversion is found in the "Cartmanland" episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Cartman inherits a million dollars, and buys a failing theme park with the intent to keep it all to himself. He lets other people in so that he can cover maintenance costs, and the park becomes a huge success. Cartman sells the park back to the original owner, angry that he can no longer have the park to himself. He ends up not only coughing up the million dollars for taxes he owes and a lawsuit settlement for Kenny's family (since Kenny's death this episode happened on one of Cartman's roller coasters), but he even ends up owing several thousand dollars.
