* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Sharks vs. Pods", when Patrick appears out of nowhere in the end to exclaim "Yeah! We saved the rec center!" There was no rec center even mentioned in the episode.

* A curious instance occurs in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, in ''Literature/{{Evensong}}''. The CommunityThreateningConstruction threat is to the whole [[CloseKnitCommunity district and its villages]]; and its source is, subversively, governmental, not private-enterprise backed: [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} naïve, Lib Dem]][[note]]but I repeat myself...[[/note]] local councillor [[SupremeChef Teddy Gates]] was snookered into volunteering ''his'' ward, the [[CloseKnitCommunity Woolfonts]], for new social / community housing. ''Un''fortunately, his ward is in an AONB, and every square foot is scheduled at least Grade II*. ''Fortunately,'' the Duke of Taunton (late [[MajorlyAwesome major]], the [[UsefulNotes/BritsWithBattleships Intelligence Corps]]) enlists the British Army and the whole Ministry of Defence in the crafty solution: he gets back some old buildings (derelict since 1945) under the Crichel Down rule, and runs up {{Retraux}} Georgian housing on the site: to move in retired [[spoiler: [[NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkhas]]]] and their families. It's a political winner ''and'' makes the whole community happy. Particularly as the Duke creates a Trust to do the build: one which brings together a bunch of [[RetiredBadass old Sappers, Signallers, and other Forces retirees]] to train FE students and recently demobbed and wounded squaddies who need to learn new trades.

* {{Subverted}} in ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'': the movie starts off with a wealthy property developer offering a large reward to the {{Obi Wan}} for selling his antique store, since he is the only holdout for a big new construction project. However, he has an offscreen death, and the big new construction subplot is never heard of again.

* A standard plot for WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight, though subverted several times when it's revealed that Snidely Whiplash is entirely within his legal rights to foreclose on nearly every property in town for non-payment (including the Mountie Fort), and indeed has been ordered by the Canadian government to do so (fortunately, Horse is able to win enough money at a casino to save the town... with the side effect that now ''Horse'' starts threatening to shut down the orphanage).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealAdventuresOfJohnnyQuest'' episode "The Ballad of Belle Bonnet" was about a female outlaw (Belle) stealing gold to save an orphanage. Centuries later, the gold has been found and returned to the bank. The orphanage was saved by the reward offered by the bank.

* This was the driving motivation for [[spoiler:Kabuto]] in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' becoming a spy. Danzo warned Konoha's payments might go missing if at least one orphan didn't agree to act as a spy.

* In ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', part of the game involves rebuilding the Pelican Town Community Center by completing "bundles" so that little forest spirits known as Junimos will fix the place up for you. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Alternatively, you can take the dickish route]] and side with [[PredatoryBusiness JojaMart]], who will tear down the community center and replace it with a warehouse where you can pay cash for (some of) the improvements and bonuses you would have gotten from the Community Center.
