* 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.

As Minion didn't suffer from this trope since all he wants is for his master to be happy, Megamind lectures the trope to Minion:

-->'''Megamind:''' Just think about it. We have it all. And yet, we have nothing. It's just to easy now. I mean, we did it right? Then why do I feel so melancholy? Unhappy?

* 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.

* In the video for Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di7NMssrqsE Daze]]," OrcusOnHisThrone figure [[TragicMistake Hamartia]] is afflicted by boredom, as he seems thoroughly contemptuous of the decadent MasqueradeBall he's presiding over, only regaining interest at the prospect of wrecking vengeance on an absconder from the ball.

* 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!]]
