* In ''VideoGame/FairyFencerF'', while you get a few hints that Sherman Shellancer is a man of means, [[spoiler:a conversation between him and his fairy in the Vile God route of ''Advent Dark Force'' after several members join your party reveals that if necessary, he could afford to pay for them to all stay at the inn for 285-410 days, and that's even factoring in for the rate at which they've been growing.]]

* The key to ''Literature/CrazyRichAsians'' is Rachel rocked to discover her boyfriend Nick isn't just from a wealthy family. Rather, his family "has more money than God" but often downplays how amazingly rich they are. Nick himself explains he wanted to make friends in America without them knowing he was so well-off and actually enjoys how even rich people have no idea he's "the one percent of the one percent."

* The titular alien in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' is '''ridiculously''' rich - as in; he's repeatedly ''hired'' the PrivateMilitaryContractors he works for - '''all''' of them, along with their {{Battlestar}} - and he once '''''OWNED THE COMPANY.''''' He [[RagsToRiches started out as a slave]], but he ended up the SoleSurvivor of the rather wealthy circus that bought him when they were attacked by SpacePirates - and then he killed all the pirates and claimed all their stuff. When he went to deposit his newfound wealth in a bank, he learned about commodities trading; feeling hungry at the moment, he decided to invest in "[[CallARabbitASmeerp Unchyr]] chicks." His nice little nest egg turned into a fortune when the clever and fair-dealing AI from which he purchased a few live chicks learned that [[StarfishAliens carbosilicate amorphs]] could sniff out a prion infection that was ravaging every farm on the planet. {{Aesop}}? Stock shufflers are stupid; go out and ''learn'' about what you're buying!
-->We cleaned house, him and me. Those traders, pushing around electrons and pretending they had money? We got our hands dirty and ruined most of them. The smart ones started investing in us.

* ''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.]]
