* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has treasure maps inside bottles that players can find while mining, fishing, or doing botany. The map shows a small section of the regional map and a red X indicating where the treasure coffer is located. After digging up the coffer, trying to open it will always have a group of monsters attack you since the coffer is rigged with a trap and you have to kill all the monsters before you can open the coffer for its contents (usually rare materials, tomestones, gil, or even a more rare treasure map). Some coffers will require multiple players working together to fight the monsters since a solo player would not survive.

The AdventurerArchaeologist will often come across treasure maps. This trope is also a form of AMacguffinFullOfMoney.

AMacguffinFullOfMoney. This trope is often associated with PirateBooty, despite the fact that pirates rarely buried treasure - the typical pirate would spend most of his income from a voyage outfitting the ship for the next one, and squander the rest on high living before setting out on said voyage.

* In one of the RiftwarCycle novels, it's mentioned that selling fake treasure maps was a common trick to get young men to wander out into the middle of nowhere so they could be captured by slavers. The boy who would become Macros the Black was one said victim of this con.

* In ''RedDeadRedemption'' you can follow Treasure Maps and follow them for treasure, achievements, and perks. Also, the character Seth has long been searching for treasure via maps and word of mouth, and though the treasure he threw his life away to find turns out to be a dud, after the end of the game you can read a newspaper which implies he eventually found another one elsewhere.

Next, they'll need to find the starting point, the right tropical isle or hidden cave. Getting there may be an adventure in itself. Once there, the heroes have to find the actual location of the treasure. This can be as simple as "X marks the spot", or "fifteen paces south of the dead pine" (though might find that fifteen paces for one of their group doesn't cover the same distance for another) upto having to navigate a BambooTechnology DeathCourse, with only cryptic comments scrawled on the map to help them find the safe route through. If StatusQuoIsGod either the treasure will [[AllThatGlitters turn out to be worthless]] or the heroes will have to [[FriendOrIdolDecision abandon it for the greater good]].
