* One ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' storyline featured a pair of living piggybanks who were married. The husband stored all of their money inside himself to save up for their vacation on a cruise. Rat points out that the husband would need to be smashed to get the money. The wife piggybank then gets her hammer ready, confesses that she never really loved her husband, and makes plans to upgrade her cabin since she's only going to need one ticket. The final strip of the storyline has Pig steadfastly believing that the wife will choose her husband over money. [[spoiler:The last panel shows her relaxing on a lounge-chair alone enjoying a Mai Tai.]]

* The old ''{{Nickelodeon}}'' show ''Don't Just Sit There'' had a segment where a girl showed viewers how to break their piggy banks if they were too sentimental to do it the regular way. Methods included leaving it on a high shelf and waiting for a cat to knock it over, and simply gritting your teeth and breaking it yourself. Subverted at the end, when her co-host walks by emptying his piggy bank the proper way.

A stock symbol of saving money for a rainy day (or just saving money in general) is the good ol' ceramic Piggy Bank. It seems every child has one to store the leftovers from their allowance in... and whenever there's something they ''really'' want to buy with their money, the child will always, ''always'' fetch a hammer and proceed to, well, 'break the bank'. In real life, nearly all such banks have a removable stopper that can be used to extract the contents in a much safer (and less violent) manner.

* In ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', when Gravelyn sends you to collect on her father's Unlife Insurance policy following the Chaos incident at Swordhaven Castle, the King's greedy pig of a tax collector has you thrown in prison rather than cough up the cash. After fighting through the guards, you then have to fight the Piggy Drake, which is basically one of these in boss form, in order to get through to the vault.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Elona}}'', the game features kitty banks of various sizes in which the player can use to store gold coins. This is useful as the money inside the bank is not counted towards the player's monthly taxes. In order to retrieve their stored money, the player must destroy the kitty bank by throwing it.

* In the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode, "Bowser Junior's Piggy Bank!", when Junior sees a commercial for a Hot Wheels playset, he wants to buy it with the money from Bowser's piggy bank, since Bowser has saved over $100.00 in coins in it. Being too impatient to wait until his birthday next week or save his own money to buy the Hot Wheels playset (Bowser even gave him his own ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' piggy bank to do so), and despite the warning from Bowser not to break his piggy bank or he will cancel his birthday, Junior breaks Bowser's piggy bank and steals Bowser's money anyway, and buys the Hot Wheels playset with it. Cody later points out there was a plug at the bottom of the bank, so [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot Junior could have just stolen the money without breaking the bank]]. When Junior worries about Bowser finding out he disobeyed him, Toad replaces Bowser's broken piggy bank with a real pig, which leads Bowser to believe his piggy bank came to life.
