* Mr Dinwiddie the gold miner from IvorTheEngine was basically this character, albeit he was also something of a MadScientist due to his knowledge of geology. He also subverted the trope with the revelation that while he was an extremely successful miner, he didn't much care for money and so just put the gold back into the ground when he found it.
