* Parodied in a Halloween episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', wherein the Comic Book Guy kidnaps his favorite celebrities, including Tom Baker, Matt Groening, and Lucy Lawless, and encases them in mylar bags.
** In fact, the villainous alias he chooses really ''is'' TheCollector.

Added DiffLines:

*''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'': Prince Ozymardien is the cousin of King Sellik XXI. He gets the wealth and prestige of royalty with none of the responsibilities of it, so he just lives in the city of Tai-tastigon being incredibly wealthy and collecting stuff.
-->'''Cleppetty''': He collects things. Jewels, furs, ivory, people. Last year, for example, he took to wife the most beautiful virgin in the Eastern Lands--and rumor has it he's kept her just as received, in a collection like his, you understand, there's no place for a damaged article.\\
'''Jame''': How frustrating for her.\\
'''Cleppetty''': As you say, but the point is this: if you dance particularly well before him, he's liable to collect ''you''.

* In the ''{{Nightside}}'' novels by Creator/SimonRGreen there is a character who is called "The Collector." He has unique items from the past, the future, and alternate time-lines. He is also fairly paranoid about other collectors stealing from his collection. He once went so far as to store his collection ''on the Moon.'' Didn't stop [[FirstPersonSmartass John]] [[HalfHumanHybrid Taylor]] from accessing it, though.

* Mikogami Hayato from ''{{Sekirei}}'', who aggressively pursues any Sekirei that [[StalkerWithACrush catches his fancy]] in an effort to grow his collection. His behavior is very much like a Pokemon master, even declaring that he wants one because it's a [[ShoutOut rare fire-type]]!

* In what may be the strangest example ever, RingoStarr from the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles''. In the episode "Ticket to Ride", the others are revealing their hobbies (painting, science, etc.), and it turns out that Ringo likes to kidnap women and ''put them in bird cages'' ("bird" being Liverpool slang for "girl"). Fortunately, he's really bad at it; he's only managed to trap one girl, and she escapes during the course of the episode.
