* ''{{ComicBook/Hitman}}'' had an arc centered on finding a coffin full of wealth in an unmarked grave in a huge cemetary. [[spoiler: Subverted rather cruelly when it turns out the dollar bills didn't survive, leaving only a green-tinted pile of papery mush in the coffin.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Subverted in the case of the notorious Freeboota (ork SpacePirate) Kaptin Badrukk, who is said to have buried vast amounts of wealth on remote asteroids. Subverted because orks use their own teeth as currency (they grow back), which end up desintegrating over time to prevent inflation, making them useless to humans ''and'' orks alike.

* The ''Age of Pirates'' series averts the trope in the same way. While you can certainly find treasure hordes and ships with substantial sums of gold and silver aboard, the majority of your income will be from the regular cargo aboard your targets--as well as from selling the ships themselves if you're able to take them as prizes in combat. Also, this will likewise be a good source for obtaining vital supplies like food, repair materials, and [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean rum. Especially rum.]]

->'''Sissy Pirate:''' "Uh, captain? Captain? I know we usually bury the treasure, but what if, this time, we use it to buy things? You know... eh... things we like?"
->'''Captain:''' ''(shoots him, then looks at his other men, who furiously begin digging a hole)'' "Ahhr! We'll dig up the treasure in seven yarr. I've drawn a map on this cracker, which Polly will hold for safe keepin'."

The reality of piracy was a lot more pragmatic. Food, fresh water, weapons and ammunition, timber, ropes, and sails were all of more immediate value to the corsair than a chest full of gold (which, if they ever got any, would promptly be ''spent'' on food, fresh water, weapons and ammunition, timber, ropes, and sails, with what was left going to drinking and whoring before they got caught and hanged). These things kept their ships and crews operating outside the reach of the law. In addition, very few cargo vessels carried that kind of wealth. Those that did were warships sailing in groups with enhanced security to fend off any pirates that might attempt an attack. (Certain, more mundane-looking cargoes, mind, might be more valuable than we would think of today - alcohol, fabrics, spices, and various 'exotic' items from extremely far afield)

* The multiplayer game ''VideoGame/PiratesVikingsAndKnights'' has an entire ''gamemode'' based around this. Teams must gather the treasure chests scattered across the map and [[CaptureTheFlag bring them back to their base.]] Of course, in their voice commands, [[TalkLikeAPirate the Pirate team exclusively refers to these chests as 'Booty'.]]
--> "Haharr, I got all the Booty!"
--> "Oi, someone be plunderin' our Booty!"

* Possibly the TropeMaker (in fiction at least) in the 1824 short story "Wolfert Webber" by WashingtonIrving which - like Poe's "The Gold Bug" - is about Kidd's buried treasure. Robert Louis Stevenson acknowledged "Wolfert Webber" as the promary inspiration for ''Literature/TreasureIsland''.

* ''The Deep'' by Creator/PeterBenchley (made into a film in 1977) has divers discovering a WW2 ship containing a cargo of morphine, which has sunk on top of a Spanish treasure ship that went down in the 18th century holding a priceless royal dowry. When a local drug kingpin takes an interest, the protagonists have to buy him off by salvaging the morphine while concealing what their real area of interest is.

* Possibly averted in {{Redwall}}; the corsairs seem to do it ForTheEvulz, spending less time on treasure than on capturing slaves and randomly slaughtering everything in sight. Used in ''Pearls of Lutra'' because Emperor Ublaz is specifically telling them to bring back loot for him.

* ''Literature/TheCrownerJohnMysteries'': The search for a buried Saxon hoard forms a major subplot in ''Crowner's Quest'' as, by law, all buried treasure belongs to the Crown and one of John's duties as coroner is to secure it.
