* Wilhelm in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' has basically no goals in life other than "make a lot of money" and "apply more cybernetics". Everyone gets a recorded ECHO log explaining why they're going to Elpis to hunt a Vault; Wilhelm's is the most direct:
-->'''Jack:''' Hey Wilhelm, wanna come to the moon and hunt a Vault for me?\\
'''Wilhelm:''' No.\\
'''Jack:''' I'll pay you a couple million dollars.\\
'''Wilhelm:''' Okay.\\

* The Operators in the Nuka World DLC of ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' are the greediest of the three raider gangs. They dress rather smartly for a gang of spoiled misfits, their primary goal is simply to make as much caps as possible. Any material reward satisfies them, rather it's stolen or earned.

* Meerkatnip makes it clear multiple times that she's only helping Nic Silver and the ''Podcast/{{TANIS}}'' podcast because Nic pays well and regularly. She'll often go along with a request of Nic's with a dismissive "It's your dollar" or similar. That said, she does admit that she's gotten sucked in a little with the search for Tanis and, in her first conversation with Nic following his escape from mortal danger, says she's glad he survived.
