* The title character in both versions of ''Film/{{Arthur}}'' comes from a ridiculously wealthy family and has never had to hold down a job, and thus spends his days being FunPersonified, cracking jokes to any prospective audience he encounters. His stuffy family and their social circle don't approve of his playboy antics and find him annoying and embarrassing, but people outside of it -- including the working-class woman he falls in love with -- are more forgiving. Ironically, this romance puts him on the path to actually maturing at long last rather than the prospect of an ArrangedMarriage to a rich woman he doesn't love.

* [[WhateleyUniverse Whateleyverse's]] Ayla fits in here (when his friends don't forbid him from spending money on them, anyway). Depending on the story, it varies from being implied to outright stated that he was raised both to view money as just a tool to do things with, and with a strong sense of ''noblesse oblige''; the combination means that he doesn't see the point in not using his money for good works. It's generally implied that his family is in the habit of doing the same thing; it gets mentioned off-hand in one story that there are a ''lot'' of buildings and public works out there named after various members of the Goodkind family.

Brand, the guy who decided to form the ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes in two of their three incarnations, is the third-richest being in the entire Milky Way, making his fortune off building suns/developing stargate technology (it depends on the continuity).

* ''PokemonSpecial'' has Misty and Gold qualify for this role, even if Gold happens to be a jerk at times. Steven, for being the Champion of Hoenn, is one of these due to being Devon Chairman Stone's son. While she has the money, Platinum doesn't qualify... yet.

* Ayaka Yukihiro of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', willing to fund trips to the south seas, fly a dozen people to the UK, and entire festival games well into the millions, usually without being asked.

He even allows the children from the hospital to watch the commercial being filmed.
