* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', the Laramie Clan organizes the Big P Pokémon Race and names the winners honorary members so they can help spread their message about living in harmony with Pokémon. [[JerkAss Dario]] couldn't care less about spreading any message; he's only interested in the money and prestige he can get by using the Laramies' name.

* Sly Sludge from ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' was, uniquely among the show's villains, motivated solely by profit. His fellow antagonists had a deep, personal hatred of the environment and polluted the world out of sheer spite, even Looten Plunder, a supposedly wealth-obsessed businessman, sank presumably millions of dollars of his personal fortune into wiping out endangered animals. Meanwhile, all the environmental damage Sludge produced was a by-product of his businesses, not a goal in of themselves, and the result of lax environmental policies which he adopted to save costs rather than just to pollute. In one episode he starts a very profitable venture disposing of nuclear waste, indicating that if he thought he could make more money helping the planet than harming it he would.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', professional competitive firebender [[TallDarkAndHandsome Ma]][[TroubledButCute ko]] doesn't care about glory, fame, the art of bending, or anything else - he just wants the cash prize that comes with winning the league, to keep himself [[BigBrotherInstinct and his]] [[PromotedToParent younger brother]] [[TheCharmer Bolin]] from getting turned back out on the [[StreetUrchin streets.]]

* The summon Yojimbo in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' must be paid for each attack he makes. Which attack he uses depends partly on how much you pay him and partly on his affection level, with higher levels resulting in stronger attacks. His affection level rises when you overpay him or when he uses a strong attack, and it drops when you underpay him or he uses a weak attack.

* Series/NeroWolfe is very reluctant to accept a case without the prospect of a big fat paycheck at the end of it. This is both due to his [[BrilliantButLazy incredible laziness]] and his expensive tastes (a rooftop greenhouse full of orchids and five star dining every night doesn't come cheap) meaning that if he's going to work, he's going to get paid big for it. He's not entirely without honour, however, and can sometimes be prodded into working for free if the circumstances are right.
