* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Investing his combat pay wisely ([[PsychicPowers precognition]] certainly helped to make wise investments) Shinji became very rich in a short period of time. And no one knew how much money he had.
-->Shinji’s net worth had tripled in the past four days, and he was already covertly moving to expand that wealth further still. Money attracted more money, and within another two to three months his income from his investments would start exceeding his income from his NERV salary, to say nothing of his net worth. Within a year he could easily become one of the richest individuals in Japan.\\
And no one would know just how much money he had. Off shore accounts were a wonderful thing.

In fiction, it's apparently very hard for the wealthy to avoid being either a RichBitch or SpoiledSweet, both are scorned by the average man. Many GenreSavvy characters spot this trend and hide their wealth. For some they've even been separated from the family, and are wealthy in name only. Expect these characters to be kind, caring and generally the opposite of a RichBitch, so that the reveal of their wealth is more shocking.
