* One episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' implied that Marcie's aunt willed her whole estate to her cats while instructing Marcie to look after her cremated remains. (Steve clearly despised said aunt, and as a result, felt no regret or remorse over [[IAteWhat what happened to those ashes]]; his stories of her miserly ways during her life were likely to make sure [[CrossingTheLineTwice the viewers felt the same way]].)

** This forms a major part of the plot in ''Discworld/MakingMoney''. Near the beginning of the book, Topsy Lavish leaves her shares in the Ankh-Morpork Royal Bank to her dog, Mr. Fusspot... and leaves the dog to Moist von Lipwig, with a note that Moist will be targeted by the Assassins' Guild if Moist should decline to take care of the dog. There's hints in the book that this wasn't done out of eccentricity, but because she wanted Moist to run the bank. She couldn't give him the shares directly, since he couldn't be both Postmaster General and Master of the Mint (which was part of the Bank). (She at ''least'' wanted to keep him alive, as her contract with the Assassins' Guild keeps anyone else from taking out one on Moist, and [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Assassins' Guild's standards]] will keep them from actually fulfilling one on Mr. Fusspot.

** This forms a major part of the plot in ''Discworld/MakingMoney''. Near At the beginning of the book, Topsy Lavish leaves her owns 50% of the shares in the Ankh-Morpork Royal Bank to Bank, and her dog, dog Mr. Fusspot owns exactly one share, the result of an eccentric bequest from her late husband. Mrs. Lavish then dies (she was quite old), bequeaths ''all'' her shares to Mr. Fusspot... and leaves the dog to Moist von Lipwig, with a note that Moist will be targeted by the Assassins' Guild if Moist should decline to take care of the dog. There's hints in the book It turns out, though, that this wasn't done out of eccentricity, but because Mrs. Lavish was quite a canny operator [[InvokedTrope using "eccentricity" as a cover to get what she wanted Moist to run the bank. She couldn't give him wanted]]. If she'd left the shares directly, since he couldn't be both Postmaster General directly to Moist, the will would have been challenged by her money-hungry relatives, and Master Moist can't be chairman of the bank because he already runs the Mint (which was part would be a conflict of the Bank). (She at ''least'' wanted interest), but there's long legal precedent for rich old ladies leaving money to keep him alive, as her beloved pets. Her provisional contract with the Assassins' Guild keeps anyone else from taking out one even provides Moist with protection against the money-hungry relatives, as they won't accept competing contracts on Moist, the same target, and [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Assassins' Guild's standards]] will keep them from actually fulfilling they won't accept one on Mr. Fusspot.Fusspot]].

* In ''Disney/TheAristocats'', the title felines are to be the main beneficiaries of their owner's will in order to keep them looked after. Edgar, the butler, eavesdrops on the conversation and then decides to try to off the cats in question as he was to receive the rest when the cats died. Incidentally, it did "[[InsaneTrollLogic address]]" the issue of him just waiting for the cats to die: he assumes that each cat really [[CatsHaveNineLives has nine lives]]. And, for some reason, that the four cats will live consecutively. He's not very bright. Ironically, she implies at the end that she intended to leave the butler a sizable sum himself.
