* The [[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Blood Ravens]] of ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}}'' obsessively collect artifacts of historical value, especially anything that might hold a clue to their lost history. [[{{Fanon}} Fanonically]], this is exaggerated (perhaps not terribly so), to the point of grabbing ANYTHING that might of historical value, a useful weapon or piece of wargear, or bling for the heck of it. This has earned them the nickname of [[FanNickname the "Bloody Magpies"]].

* ''Series/{{ER}}''. Luka gets his new girlfriend a job at the hospital. It's soon offhandedly mentioned that the petty cash is missing. Later, Abby mentions that she can't find her wallet. Later still, the desk clerk is looking for his PDA when he hears it chiming (he sets an alarm to remind him to take his medication) from the girl's purse. Sure enough, she has it, and everyone instantly realizes that she's responsible for everything else. She takes off, and in his futile efforts to find her, Luka learns that she was also stealing from the bar where she previously worked.
* ''Veronica's Closet''. Veronica hires a new model for a fashion show and is amazed as throughout the interview, the woman constantly picks up things and puts them in her purse without the slightest acknowledgement that she's stealing. She continues this behavior throughout the show, stealing the light bulbs from the runway, blithely declaring, "Those are ''my'' light bulbs!" when Veronica confronts her. Veronica finally gets fed up and fires her when the woman has the nerve to steal her bracelet right off of her wrist and insist, "This is ''my'' bracelet!". The woman leaves in a huff, but not before taking a folding chair along with her.

Added DiffLines:

* The Halflings in ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'' are stereotyped as having sticky fingers, but the reasoning behind it are quite complex. Halflings usually live in large villages where everyone is more or less related. This leads to property rights being rather fluid; if something is missing, it's probably been borrowed by someone who needed it and who might or might not bring it back, but who really cares since we can borrow someone else's. This attitude, when transferred to human or Dwarf society (both of whom are ''very'' keen on personal property) easily comes across as skuzzy.

* You! Yes, you, in countless video games, especially RolePlayingGames. Pretty much anything that's not part of the background is potentially yours and many games explicitly encourage you to take anything not nailed down. Affects moral alignment in games that have such.

[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleptomania Kleptomania]], from the Greek root words "kleptein" (to steal) and "mania" (obsession with, madness). In the real world, it's an obsession with collecting or hoarding things (which are typically small items like paperclips or pens, which the sufferer may or may not be even aware they stole) with no regard to any material gain. While it might seem quite mild, it can lead to compulsive shoplifting and is often combined with personality disorders, which can make things even worse.
