* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}: When Blake shows Sun where her family home is, Sun is shocked to see it's the largest residential building in the area. It's a huge, sprawling mansion with steps leading up to a giant front door with an enormous, intimidating knocker. There are multiple, good-sized rooms inside and, unlike Weiss's cold, empty, echoing family mansion, Blake's family mansion uses rich, warming wood effects. [[spoiler:What Blake hasn't revealed to her friends and team-mates is that she's the daughter of one of the most influential Faunus in the world. Her father is Menagerie's chieftain, and the former peaceful White Fang leader who was forced to stand down by a coup that transformed the White Fang into terrorists.]]

* On ''Series/JaneByDesign'' Billy meets Zoe, a streetwise tough gal in jeans and jackets who talks of a rough life. He is worried about her behavior and follows her one night, finding her entering a huge mansion. Billy races in, assuming Zoe is planning to rob the place and trying to get her out before the cops arrive. He stops when he sees a portrait on the wall of Zoe in a posh riding outfit and realizes this is her house. She explains that she puts on her "street" act because she was outcast at her old school due to her wealth and wanted a fresh start.

She thus took advantage of being transferred for a fresh start.

James however is not proud of himself for this at all as his Parents are [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense manipulative]] [[AbusiveParents jerks]], who are more concerned about having their son inherit their fortune and continuing the family line, even if it means having him marry [[AxeCrazy an even more sadistic and crazy]] [[UnwantedSpouse wife-to-be]].

* On an episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'' a young teen is with a "family" of homeless people whose "father" just murdered a rich girl for insulting him. The detectives are shocked when the girls' parents arrive, revealing that she's from a posh West Side complex. Benson and Stabler (who have met countless abused kids) clearly can't believe it when this girl complains that her life in a penthouse and private schools was torture that she wanted to escape. It takes a turn when her mother reveals that her daughter and the victim once went to the same school. Benson and Stabler realize that the girl encouraged her "father" to kill the other teen before she could reveal her secret.
** The man is outraged when he learns this as at the girl's own trial for second degree murder, he points out how she now sits in an expensive dress and jewels when he knew her as a street urchin. He points out that he may be a killer but at least he's not a hypocrite.

* The protagonist of ''Espedair Street'' by Creator/IainBanks is a former member and principle songwriter for a highly successful rock band in the '70's and '80's. When we meet him, he lives as a lonely recluse in a Scottish castle (which he owns) writing advertising jingles to stave off the boredom. His only real friend is a [[ViolentGlaswegian violently passionate socialist]] with whom he spends regular drinking time, and who is unaware of his fame and fortune, having led him to believe that he is the castle's caretaker instead of its owner.
