* The Kender from the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}} TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting are an entire race of pseudo-{{Hobbits}} who are relentless thieves that will pick pockets and break into locked chests/drawers/houses without even consciously thinking about it, to the point that the "kender greeting" from other races is to swear and protectively clutch at one's valuables. Worse, they do this out of an intense natural curiosity, meaning every single kender is convinced that they're only borrowing interesting things in good faith, and will certainly return them.

* Dijon from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''. While a common thief otherwise, also seems to suffer from kleptomania, unable to resist stealing even when not intending to, including stealing worthless junk like old shoes.



* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', Pete accidentally turns Goofy into one using hypnosis.
* Grunkle Stan from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' will steal anything he wants or needs, from waxworks to light bulbs. While he does have his reasons, [[spoiler: such as having spent his late teens to his late twenties living alone in poverty]], it's mostly due to his greed and the fact that he seems to genuinely enjoy breaking the law.

One episode had him get a job at a Wal-mart parody only to find out every employee has a shock collar on their neck. When his coworkers told him they all knew how to disable the collars and steal everything that's not nailed down, they asked him not to judge them. Homer not only doesn't judge them but he steals an entire cart of [=TVs=] right then and there.

* Mr. Krabs in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. One episode had an amusement park hosting a "Free Day" where everything in the park was free. Mr. Krabs took this to mean ''everything'', including streetlight lightbulbs and [[spoiler:''the egg of the star attraction.'']]
