* There are a tonne of prospectors kicking around the solar system in ''TabletopGame/RcoketAge''. They're most commonly seen on Venus, Ganymede and in the Asteroid Belt, trying to stake out claims before other prospectors or the large corporations get involved.

* Some characters in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' consider themselves this... it sounds better than scavengers or looters.



* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has a number of prospectors, appropriately considering the heavy influence the game draws from classic Westerns. Unusually, instead of gold and minerals, these prospectors pick over old ruins for ancient pre-War electronics.

* In the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode "TheFinalSacrifice", Mike comes down with Grizzled Old Prospector's Hair thanks to being exposed to a [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam-esque]] in the movie. Symptoms include development of shaggy hair and beard, smoking a corncob pipe, and saying outdated phrases like "consarn it".
* In two of three appearances in ''TheBradyBunch'', Jim Backus appeared as a prospector, living in a ghost town in California, convinced that the Brady family was there to jump his claim. He locked them in the town jail cell and rode off in their car, with the camper still attached. He returned the next day because he only wanted to get to the county office to register his claim, apologizing to the Bradys for locking them up. They, being the Bradys, let him off the hook.

The stereotypical image of the {{Prospector}} is an older man dressed in faded work garb, with [[BadassBeard a grey beard]], missing teeth, a pickaxe and a trusty mule or burro. (Find a picture of Gabby Hayes in costume. Like that.) He'll be subject to intense bouts of GoldFever, wild celebration when he does find a rich deposit, and suspicion of anyone who gets too close to his claim.

* ''[[PlantsVsZombies Plants vs. Zombies 2]] has the prospector zombie. They carry dynamite in their back pocket which will launch them behind the plants when it detonates. To counter this, either kill them before their dynamite goes off or use a split pea to shoot them when they're behind the plants.
