* Lawrence the helmsman in SkiesOfArcadia makes it clear that he doesn't give a damn about Vyse's goal, but he'll follow him to the ends of the earth as long as he's paid.

* Franchise/IndianaJones takes a dim view of anyone who views historic treasures by their monetary value, and the worst is likely Max from [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Kingdom of the Crystal Skull]], who has a viewpoint similar to Lone Star's from the Page Quote:
-->'''Max:''' ďComrade?Ē You think this is about flags? This is about uniforms? Itís about lines on a map?

* Leorio from ''HunterXHunter'' is an interesting example, claiming at the start of the series that he's only interested in taking the Hunter Exam because being a Hunter could easily make him filthy rich. Not only does he turn out to be the [[NiceGuy nicest guy in the series]], but the reason he wants to be filthy rich is so he can get his PhD and open a free hospital after an old friend of his died from lack of treatment after he couldn't pay the medical fees.

** Rennac from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' is another example. He was with L'Arachel and Dozla at first as a part of L'Arachel's crusade against evil. He soon left the two after feeling shortchanged when he wasn't receiving any compensation (L'Arachel believes that fighting for the greater good is enough.) When you meet him alone and try to recruit him with Eirika/Ephraim, he would join after paying him 9,980 Gold! However he can join for free if you use L'Arachel instead.
