* Money in the {{Mac}} {{shareware}} RPG ''VideoGame/{{Realmz}}'' had weight, and for this reason it could be exchanged from gold to gems for a fee at any business.[[note]]There was also an even more valuable monetary denomination, jewelry (separate from actual equipment like rings, necklaces and circlets), which could be readily converted to gems or gold, but was only obtainable as loot[[/note]] This was rendered less dire by the introduction of banking, which allowed excess money to be stored at certain businesses, whereupon it could be obtained [[BagOfSharing at any other banking business in the scenario]], but it was still necessary to load up all your net worth [[OldSaveBonus in order to play the same characters in a new scenario]].

-->--''The Dungeonomicon''[[note]]Actually, it's not all that unreasonable; 100 Troy pounds of gold works out at about $1,410,000. The rent on it would still just be a handful of coins every month. Quite expensive for a house, but not entirely implausible.[[/note]]

* Averted in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'', where money has a weight. The game has an extensive banking system to allow players to transfer their wealth into notes of credits. You can also put it into a bank account, but each region has their own separate banking system and the only purchases that can draw directly from the account are houses and ships (as those are bought from the banks themselves).

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Played straight in every main series game except for ''Daggerfall'' (see below). Septims, the series' standard currency of fairly large gold coins, do not have weight. With all of the MoneyForNothing typically available as you progress through the games, players frequently end up carrying around hundreds of thousands or even ''millions'' of gold coins with no penalty. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', the developers only made discrete models for dropped gold up to 500 coins. This means that a pile of 500 coins is identical to a pile of 500,000 coins. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' replace stacks of dropped coins with brown coin pouches, but a pouch will look the same whether it contains 10 coins or 10,000.

* Played perfectly straight ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. Septims are quite large gold coins with, apparently, zero weight. More amusingly, the developers only bothered to make discrete models for dropped gold up to 500 coins; which means you can have a 500 coin pile, and a 300,000 coin pile, both of which appear identical in-game.

* ''{{Arcanum}}'' coins have weight, as do all forms of ammunition, though an unlimited number can be carried in a small stack in your GridInventory.

This is usually an [[AntiFrustrationFeatures used as an anti-frustration feature]], unless the game is ''specifically'' trying to keep you from amassing too much wealth at once as part of an AntiGrinding feature.

feature. An intermediate solution is the WalletUpgrade, where there ''is'' a {{cap}} on the amount of money you can collect, but this will be increased one or more times in the game.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'': Unlike the previous titles, your inventory is now limited by the number of unique objects and not their weight, even though septims are still 'weightless'. This is quite frustrating, as it puts a damper on the traditional loot sprees that Elder Scrolls players usually do to tiny items; carrying a greatsword is now less cumbersome than carrying two different types of extremely light crafting materials.

Much of the gold in your wallet of holding will have to go towards purchasing a bigger bag, which is already ridiculous as they're made from poor-looking materials and are the size of a watermelon.

* The fact that ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has this frustrates players to no end, as while you can hold millions upon millions of gil as soon as you start out, you have to jump through about 50 hoops to upgrade your 30 on-character and 50 at-home inventory spaces.
