* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', the religious group called Garden of Beauty and Truth posits that hedonism is what life truly is about, and that one should spend their existence seeking pleasure, arts, love and beauty. The person whose writings they've based their philosophy on is less this trope and more TheNarcissist, although hedonism figures in it as well.

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has the crew of the titular ship encounter a highly-advanced culture, whose people spend much of their time indulging in various pleasures. Things get less pleasant for the crew, after they learn that they mostly care about their own pleasure and quickly tire and lose interest towards the crew after a while. They also have their own version of AlienNonInterferenceClause, refusing to share technology to a race that doesn't already have it or even using it to help the ''Voyager'' shave off a few thousand light years from her journey.

* Maryann on ''Series/TrueBlood''''Series/TrueBlood''. Makes sense, since she's a [[spoiler:Maenad, a follower of the Greek god of wine and dancing Dionysus]]. She generally [[spoiler:uses her powers to make the whole town break out in impromptu orgies]].

* Willoughby of ''Literature/SenseAndSensibility'' does whatever seems pleasurable in the moment, so he's very often in debt and then gets into deep trouble. In Devonshire, what's pleasurable is romancing Marianne Dashwood, but when he visits town, he seduces Colonel Brandon's young ward, leaves her pregnant, and then quickly gets engaged to an heiress so he can maintain his comfortable lifestyle. Willoughby later confesses that his intentions towards Marianne were just to flirt and only later decided he could marry her. Elinor and Marianne both conclude that such a marriage would have been constantly unhappy, with them constantly in financial trouble and enduring Willoughby's thoughtless philandering.

* ''[[TheResidents The Residents']]'' Tweedles! is pretty much an entire album dedicated to this, sung from the point of view of an [[DepravedBisexual emotionally devoid narcissistic sexual deviant]]
* ''TomWaits'' is in love with writing songs from the perspective of characters whose driving mentality epitomizes this trope; Jockey Full of Bourbon, A Good Man Is Hard To Find, Get Lost, Satisfied, Tango 'Til They're Sore, and Goin' Out West being just a few examples.

** In a dark twist which acts as a metaphor for drug abuse, Slaanesh's followers tend to develop a tolerance to hedonistic indulgence over time. It gets to the point where they have to be constantly pumped full of Chaos-spawned drugs just to feel ''[[SenseLossSadness anything]]''.
