* The basic plot of most CatsEye episodes ist the trio putting on a caper - and Toshio trying to prevent it.
* A lot of the filler arcs of ''GetBackers'' qualify. Even though the titular characters only steal items to return then to their original owners, sometimes the definition of "original owner" can get really fuzzy (especially with Clayman).
* In an episode of ''KeroroGunsou'', Momoka, Natsumi, and Moa form the "PhantomThief Troupe: More Peach Summer" to steal the painting "The Birth of Venus"... which turns out to be [[spoiler: [[EmbarrassingOldPhoto an embarrassing portrait of Momoka as a baby, naked]]]].

* Parodied in one ''SaintsRow2'' mission where an elaborate plan is thought up for a heist, but the plan is scrapped in favor of just walking through the front door and shooting everyone.

Also doubles as a ShoutOut/TakeThat to ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' below, as the initial plan, as described, is similar to CJ's plan, before Gat and the Boss scrap the idea for just shooting everybody.

* The MarvelComics miniseries ''Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11'' features a destitute M.O.D.O.K. recruiting a group of equally-destitute C-list supervillains to help him steal a powerful energy source, for which he will pay them. Predictably, most of the villains are either working for someone else or trying to screw each other over.

** ''GTAV'' takes this premise and runs with it - not only are there several heists in the game, each one has a variety of missions associated with it to prepare for said heist. For example, when the team plans to rob a jewelry store, they send in a guy to case the joint and take pictures of the various security systems. Once they have the pictures, the player has to make a decision on whether to go in "loud and dumb" with guns blazing, or recruit a hacker and steal some knockout gas, an exterminator's van, and dress up as exterminators so that people won't question their gas masks. You also need to hire a crew to help you with the support stuff - the more competent they are, the bigger take they demand. And finally, after all that, comes the heist itself.
