* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is sometimes a trait of members of the [[AdventureGuild Fighters Guild]], an organization of "[[HiredGuns warriors-for-hire]]". There have been several instances in the series of Fighters Guild members refusing a dangerous mission, though this isn't usually an option for the PlayerCharacter if he/she wants to advance in the Guild.

* TheFlash's Rogues are strictly this. At times, they will try to save the Twin Cities from more maniacal villains. This can't be said for some of the Flash's other villains, such as Zoom and Grodd.

* You know all those hysterically insane ConspiracyTheories presented on the GlennBeck show? Beck's admitted that if they didn't bring in the ratings, he'd dump them in a heartbeat because even he knows how loony they are.

** Due to their essentially street-level nature, a large majority of Spidey's rogues gallery share this trait to greater or lesser degrees, DependingOnTheWriter. Sandman and Hydro-Man are the worst offenders, being essentially living elementals hiring themselves out [[CutLexLuthorACheck because they can't think of any better way to make money with their powers]].


Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen'', Mystique is not ''herself'' one of these (not usually, though she has been known to engage in the occasional bash-and-pry here and there), but most of her subordinates in the [[Characters/XMenBrotherhoodOfMutants Brotherhood]] are. This is very much by design, as Mystique is a [[TheLeader Mastermind-type of leader]] whose main strategy to motivate people is by throwing fistfuls of money at them.

* ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Reserved for the Cat]]'': Ninette has this motivation at first. It's portrayed sympathetically; it's not that she's greedy, it's that she wants to survive.

** Shadow from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is this. He requests to be paid to join the group, there is a risk that he simply leaves with every battle and he literally doesn't care about the heros until [[spoiler: the world is about to end where he will try a HeroicSacrifice]]. From then on, he gets better thanks to CharacterDevelopment.

** Defied with Locke: while he certainly ''likes'' money, it's ultimately not all that important to him. He'd rather just be entertained. Cutting off Jaime's hand is worth more to him than all Lord Tywin's money, and watching Brienne fight a bear with a wooden sword is worth more than all her father's sapphires (of which he actually has none).

* Android 18 of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', following her HeelFaceTurn, will only get into fights if she's offered money, especially tournaments. She convinced Hercule to pay her double the prize money so he can save face and not be humiliated by letting her throw the match and Goku had to bribe her with this to get her to participate in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''[='s=] Tournament of Power.
