* 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.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Torbjörn organized the very first expedition in a ForbiddenZone in ninety years to salvage very valuable Old World books and sell them on the black market for a large sum of money.

* Bronn, Tyrion's [[TheDragon dragon]] from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' only works for the person who will pay him the most. Unlike some cases, Bronn is much less moral than his {{AntiHero}} employer, and will commit any dirty job so long as he gets a good price for it. [[spoiler:Tyrion isn't shocked when Bronn refuses to champion him in spite of their pseudo-friendship since Tyrion's sister, Cersei, has paid Bronn much more for him to not risk his life trying to save Tyrion]].
