* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] has the Money Bin. Notable in that while it's still as trapped and guarded as any other pile of wealth that violates Euclidean geometry, it's intentionally set aside as valuable for ''sentimental'' reasons.

** There are tons of other examples as well since Scrooge moonlights as an AdventurerArchaeologist. He's discovered massive treasure hoards such as the Seven Cities of Cibola, the Aztec gold, the collective Mesoamerican riches hidden in Panama, the treasure of the Knight Templars, and the Amazonian CityOfGold. A noticeable one that the Ducks missed is the treasure collected by the Mongol hordes in Xanadu, which lies underneath [[spoiler:Tralla La]].

* The Cave of Wonders in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. In a twist, the treasure is not what anyone goes into the cave for, and is in fact a [[SchmuckBait test of greed]]: "Touch ''nothing'' but the [[GenieInABottle lamp]]!" [[spoiler:When Abu does touch a piece of the treasure, the entire cave erupts in lava and fire, melting and consuming the treasure and trying to do the same to the heroes.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' has the lost city of San Lorenzo, and it's treasure vault, filled with all sorts of treasure, nearly all of it magical in nature. The Grotto of Riches can also give the San Lorenzo vaults a run for its money, as it is filled with just as many treasures, all collected by a single lamb.

A staple of {{role playing game}}s, video games, movies, TV, and wherever stories are told. A big room full of treasure... money, gold and jewels. Usually not organized very well, it's all just piled in together like an episode of ''Hoarders: Filthy Rich Edition''. Often the McGuffin. Often trapped or guarded by a monstrous beast, [[DragonHoard most frequently a dragon]]. Often a cause of LaserGuidedKarma due to all the DeathByMaterialism. Sometimes TheHero might get all of it, but generally they only manage a choice piece or two, if anything. In many scenarios there will be some sort of cave-in, massive flood, or other such death trap which will inevitably chase the hero/heroes out. And since it would only take a few days or maybe a week to dig it back out, the treasure is clearly LostForever. Apparently adventurers have never heard of modern excavation equipment.
