* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'': Fafnir, a very greedy dwarven prince that turns into a dragon, is amongst the roster. If he wins the match, his victory animation involves taking a dip in his DragonHoard, swimming there and turning into a dragon in the middle of the swim to enjoy his hoard.

As the page quote 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.

* In the SF novel ''Rocheworld,'' a multimillionaire discovers she's been selected for a one-way interstellar expedition. Since she'll never need money again, she instructs her broker to liquidate ''everything'' into ''cash.'' She also contacts the owner of a staggering rare gold coin, and arranges to purchase it for a number equal to her approximate net worth. He shows up at a warehouse with the coin in a protective briefcase, expecting a check or similar. She emerges from the warehouse adjusting her clothes, and says, "Don't try to swim in the bills. Paper cuts." She then puts the coin in her pocket, walks away, and takes it with her when she leaves the Solar System.

* The ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' fangame ''[[http://rattus.storynexus.com/s Rat Sending Simulator 2kXX]]'' contains an area called Gold Zone. Naturally, you get an option to try diving into the gold, but...
-->'''Thunk!'''\\
If there were an onomatopoeia for an unwise tourist slamming face-first into a giant pile of gold, that'd be it. You obtain nothing more than a headache and regrets.
