* In ''{{Illuminatus}}'', Robert Putney Drake is a dissatisfied spoilt rich kid who compounds idleness and a sense of not having properly earned his fabulous wealth with a desire to make something of himself. He opts to translate the wealth into ''real'' power and escalates from [[TheCasanova ticking off the daughters of other rich families]] to systematically becoming the most powerful man in the USA - whilst maintaining the facade of an irresponsible playboy.

* Jed Clampett of the ''BeverlyHillbillies''. He has millions due to selling his land to an oil company, but is many times shown being bored as he would rather work than be idle rich. He enjoys doing work like mending, repairing, or gardening, but of course Mr Drysdale won't let him work a job because it's embarrassing to him. There's also no place for him to do much hunting or fishing in Beverly Hills.

* On ALF in the episode "Stairway to Heaven", ALF sees an alternate reality that if he never met the Tanners, he would have never tightened their budget with his huge appetite, the damages he causes and excessive spending. The Tanners became a very bored, rich family who resorted to telling weak jokes and asking their maid to belch for entertainment, to ALF's disgust.

* In ''Megamind'', after he successfully killed his heroic nemesis Metro Man, Megamind was able to get rich by robbing banks (and also torn down the city for fun) but then he realized that he now has everything and becomes depressed of how boring and pointless his life has become then, so he starts looking for a new superhero to fight to relieve his boredom from having more money than he knows what to do with it.
