*The four take a complicated map off a mugger in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. They're told it leads to a mine. “Why would we want to go to a mine?” George sensibly asks. The woman they asked tells them the mine is probably infested with monsters or bandits and must hold something good, since it requires a rare jump gem to get there. The four decide the map must have been given them by the gods to point them to the amulet Ringo wants so badly. However, when they finally get the requisite jump gem and go to the valley where the mine is, they discover that another adventuring party has beaten them there and is just about to come out with the spoils. HilarityEnsues.

* Averted in the ''{{Tintin}}'' two part story, "Recap/TintinTheSecretOfTheUnicorn" and "Recap/TintinRedRackhamsTreasure" in the necessary information is not a map, but three papers that when held together reveal the coordinates of the sunken ship's location. Even then, Tintin had to reckon with Capt's Haddock using the Paris Meridian and not the Prime Meridian for his starting point and even then the whole message on the papers really meant that the treasure was [[spoiler:actually hidden in Marlinspike Hall]].

At one point they misunderstand the map, thinking the treasure is buried on the Island, then after digging realize that Sir Francis wouldn't have left the treasure on the island and never come back for it.

* The ''Series/TimeTeam'' dig on Looe Island was actually given a real "treasure map" that had been discovered by an amateur historian which, intriguingly managed to coincide with a real geophysical anomaly. It turned out to be the marker place for a Victorian era flagpole. So much for the treasure of Cornish pirates.
