* 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 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.

"Why don't these things ever have money in them?"

* ''TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'' episode "Felix Breaks the Bank" had one episode where Felix tried to break his piggy bank to have money for Candy's birthday present. The piggy then took the hammer and knocked Felix into a DreamSequence. When he woke up, Candy was there and assumed the piggy was her gift. She like it so much she hugged it to the point a coin came out of it.

A stock symbol of saving money for a rainy day (or just saving money in general) is the good ol' ceramic PiggyBank. 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.
