* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' lore, Sai, the DeityOfHumanOrigin God of Luck celebrated in the Iliac Bay region, is associated with gambling. Sai was BornLucky, with the uncanny ability to spread good luck to others but not to himself. After he was killed in battle (while all of his fellow soldiers survived), he was resurrected and granted immortality by Ebonarn, the Iliac Bay WarGod, so that he may continue to spread his good luck and help to balance the world. "Sai's Disease" is essentially gambling addiction. Those afflicted are driven to incessant gambling, seeking proof of Sai's favor.

* The D'Arby brothers from ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure]]'', whose Stand powers allow them to take the souls of losers. Interestingly, the two use opposing styles: the elder D'Arby mostly makes use of cheating to win, and is very good at recognizing attempts by others to cheat as well. He's defeated by Jotaro performing the mother of all bluffs against him (no cheating happening). The younger relies more on actual skill at games, and is defeated by Jotaro and Joseph cheating to win the game (this despite D'Arby being a LivingLieDetector).

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' - Luxord, the Gambler of Fate fits this trope to a T. He uses card based attacks, minigames which award currency, and his power to control time to engage Sora in a very unorthodox time-based battle involving timed [[ActionCommands reaction commands]. He also possesses an advanced vocabulary and a classy British accent, which give him an air of sophistication. If one is skilled enough in his minigames, he can be defeated easily even in his data rematch in the game's remake, as his normal attacks are not much of a threat, and losing the minigames results in BalefulPolymorph. Of course, as the minigames in the data rematch can be quite difficult, CuttingTheKnot may be advisable in some cases by just attacking him normally and/or using Reflega when he tries to lure you into a minigame.
