* Hip-hop producer Scott Storch was once worth $70 million, blowing his fortune on [[SexDrugscAndRockAndRoll cocaine, celebrity girlfriends]], a mansion, a yacht, jewelry, and private jets. He allegedly spent $30 million in a six-month period alone. Soon afterwards, Storch went to rehab, and was later charged for grand theft auto failing to pay child support.

* In ''Theatre/KingLear'', the eponymous Lear goes from King to a mad beggar wandering the streets of his own kingdom in a few short scenes.
* ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': Although the Thenardiers aren't too wealthy to begin with, somewhere between selling Cosette to Valjean and the "present day" of 1832, they fall hard into poverty, being essentially reduced to begging (and thievery). This is especially apparent in Eponine, who in one scene has attention called to her nice clothing (especially compared to Cosette's literal rags), and in the next is wearing something not unlike what the impoverished Cosette was wearing earlier.
** Fantine too undergoes a minor riches-to-rags story as part of her TraumaCongaLine. One day she's working in a factory to help her daughter, the next she's selling her body (not only through prostitution, but also through literally selling her hair and teeth).
