* In Disney's ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', IdleRich Prince Naveen admits to something very similar - that the cooking, the washing, absolutely everything was done for him as he frittered away money on idle entertainment with women and dancing, and when his parents cut him off, he realised that he doesn't really know how to do anything for himself.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': This was the exact reason Señor Senior Sr. gives for becoming a [[ContractualGenreBlindness by-the-book supervillain]]. He doesn't even do it ForTheEvulz, he's just ridiculously wealthy and has no idea what to do with his time. Thus, he takes up supervillainy as a hobby. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny The guy even follows a guidebook!]]

Money [[LonelyAtTheTop makes you lonely]], [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense foolish]], or even evil, but worse than any of these: since you can buy anything, including having people do everything that needs to be done, you are bored, ''bored'', '''bored'''. There are no more challenges in life. You don't have to work. You don't have to keep house. [[IdleRich You don't, in fact, have to]] ''[[IdleRich do]]'' [[IdleRich anything.]]

Even the RoyalBrat, suffocated with toys, may suffer from this and straighten out when given something worth doing. Many rich characters find themselves abruptly precipitated into adventure and (once they get over the shock) loving it because [[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife it lends meaning to their life]].

* Benito Medici, the son of one of the richest and most powerful men in the world in ''[[OneHundredBullets 100 Bullets]]''. He's so bored that he gambles just for fun and gets involved with some very dangerous people out of his father's reach, just for fun.
* Defied in one ''{{Dilbert}}'' comic strip. Dogbert, due to some ''very'' good investments, gets a few hundred thousand from said investments. He's out for a walk, when he tells a random businessman "Roll around in that mud puddle over there and I will give you $1,000 dollars." The businessman does so, with Dogbert quipping "I don't know how rich people ''ever'' get bored."
