* Although there are both noble and malevolent Glatorian in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', a lot of them only agree to help out others (or at least, people from other settlements) for a reward. Especially Strakk, who will partake in a battle to have an opportunity at looting the bodies.

* The song ''Mang Jose'' by Filipino band ParokyaNiEdgar sings of the eponymous Mang Jose (Mr. Jose), a superhero for rent. He is described as "being like ''{{Anime/Daimos}}'', except that he charges you after saving you". The music video shows him presenting the people he saves with a receipt right after beating up the bad guys.

** Likewise, unlike her comics counterpart, Cheetah isn't a member of the Injustice Gang to rule the world, only to get the cash she needs to reverse [[ProfessorGuineaPig her medically-induced transformation]]. She ''is'' loyal to them long after the point where she should have given up, though, especially when [[spoiler:she very nearly got killed taking the fall for the aforementioned double-cross.]]

* {{Deadpool}}, particularly in his early appearances, was only in it for the money. It was not uncommon for him to switch sides ''in the middle of a fight'' if someone offered him more money.

** In ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', Team Chaotix is initially reluctant but is spurred into action when their client offers to "pay them handsomely"--they are working for [[spoiler: Dr. Eggman]], and Vector knows it, but they are perpetually broke and desperately need the money. They ultimately manage to obtain two Chaos Emeralds and are the extra nudge Sonic needs to defeat the final boss. [[spoiler: Eggman WAS going to pay them, but only after he had taken over the world. Vector has hadenough of him and forcibly removes the money from his pockets.]]

* Witz Su from ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'', at least at the start. Although he's always on a job with his {{Bash Brother|s}} Roybea, he makes no bones about being a mercenary. However, he's using the money to support his family, so it's not unsympathetic.

* Winston Zeddmore only joins the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' because there's a steady paycheck in it for him; it's implied in his first scene that he doesn't even actually believe in ghosts. Naturally, this changes through the course of the movie.
