* The landowners in Jane Austen's novels seem to personify this trope (Mr. Darcy, for example).

* Magellan, the chief warden of Impel Down from ''Main/OnePiece'', only worked about four hours a day, but this was justified. He ate poisoned food to fuel the lethality of his Doku Doku no Mi Devil Fruit power (and admits that he enjoys the flavor), and while it gave him the power to create the deadliest poisons imaginable, it also gave him terrible diarrhea, requiring him to spend ten hours a day in the bathroom. Given that he also had to sleep, he could only work about four hours a day. Still, he did an admiral job running the place until the mass breakout.
* Averted in [[Anime/CuteyHoney ''Re: Cutie Honey'']] and the live action counterpart. Honey has A LOT of free time, but is revealed that she simply doesn't work when she should. To compensate, she works over time till late hours.

** This one is part Nepotism (His father is mentioned as basically owning the company) and part cultural statement (Patrick and his friends have fabulously wealthy lifestyles They didn't earn and look down on others because of it).



* Malone (after quitting his lawyer job) and Sutherland in Andrew Holleran's ''DancerFromTheDance.'' More generally, as noted [[http://heterodoxhomosexual.blogspot.com/2007/06/planning-on-writing-gay-novel.html here]], literature for gay men tends to use this trope a lot.

* ''TabletopGame/Shadowrun''characters can actually take a disadvantage of having a job they have to attend and that pays them. You can get points for having to turn up for as little as 10 hours a week and get a regular income. This being Shadowrun most PCs don't even try hard to pretend to have a legal job.

** Pretty much the definition of a 'gentleman' in Austen's world is a landowner who receives rents and therefore doesn't actually have to ''do'' anything. Darcy, we know, didn't even have to administrate renting the land he owned- he could afford that to be contracted out to a steward. (Wickham was the son of his father's steward.)

* Rebecca from ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' does go to work, but also takes looong breaks from the office. Justified somewhat in the fact that she is apparently the best real estate lawyer ever, and so is constantly impressing both her boss and their clients even if she doesn't actually ''work'' much.
