** ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' continues this trend and even shows Scrooge [[ExploitedTrope exploiting]] this trope in the first episode [[spoiler: using it to sneak behind Glomgold in the Atlantian treasure chamber]]. The trope is actually deconstructed and justified when Louie sees the money bin for the first time and tries to do it. Scrooge grabs him [[DiscussedTrope and tells him that the only reason Scrooge can do it is because he spent years practicing and mastering the skill]]. Louie on the other hand would probably [[RealityEnsues crack his skull open]].
*** Gladstone Gander one time fills a hot tub with [[BornLucky casino chips]] and does a mocking Scrooge impression.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has Robin, Cyborg, and Beast Boy [[ImagineSpot fantasize about swimming in their newly-acquired money]] in one episode. Complete with a ''[=DuckTales=]'' theme song parody.

* Smaug in ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' slithers through his immense horde as if it were lightly-packed sand. This may be more justified than most examples given his tremendous size, and corresponding weight and strength.

** Even in the original animated series, one time the nephews attempted it and failed miserably, prompting them to all look at each other and go "how does he do it?".

* The very first episode of ''WesternAnimation/Mysticons'' has [[GenkiGirl Piper]] try taking a plunge into the heaps of coins of the Royal Treasury. "Tries" being the operative word; RealityEnsues and she smacks face-first into the unyielding metal.

* In WesternAnimation/{{Mysticons}} ep 1 "Sisters in Arms" Piper does this when they sneak into the royal tower. Trope is averted because it is painful and she doesn't sink at all, the pool of coins being tightly packed.

As the page quote [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viDL2W0HcJw&t=0m10s demonstrates]], [[ArtisticLicensePhysics pooling together large quantities of small, solid material won't magically give it the properties of a liquid]]. In fact, diving into a pool of gold coins won't be much different from diving into a giant solid block of gold. But you can't let a little thing like physics get in the way of demonstrating a perfect example of just how wealthy a character can be.

be. The effect can also be achieved (much more realistically) with dollars/bills, which are softer and, when pooled together, much more malleable (though you ''may'' run the risk of a few papercuts).
