* The vampires in Literature/{{Unique}} literally invented this trope. After centuries of living as what amounts to murderous nocturnal bandits, they learned in the Age of Discovery that they could pay humans for well guarded rooms to sleep in - or to take their money and do things with it to make even more money. They became significant shareholders in the assorted East India companies, and eventually invented modern corporate culture. Getting the law to regard corporations as legal citizens was one of their favorite jokes, in fact - a soulless, insatiably demanding entity with the rights of a human being? They were guffawing about that one for years...

* Inverted in some parts of the world: Screw The Rules, I ''Don't'' Have Money!. For example, where motorcycles are more common than cars and mark them as middle-lower income class, you will tend to find them more blatantly disregarding the traffic rules. Going against the normal direction in a one-way street is just the tip of the iceberg, and their excuse is often that motorcycles are easier to handle than a car and they can afford to do such stunts, or that they're less privileged and thus should be exempt from certain rules.
