->''"There is a very fine line between loving life and being greedy for it."''
-->--'''Maya Angelou'''

Some characters don't care about anybody but themselves. This means that they want everything in the world to themselves and aren't willing to share them with others. They often go to extreme lengths to get all the things they want. This is one of the main reasons why HumansAreBastards. Here is an index dealing with selfish and greedy characters.

Compare EgoTropes and ObsessionTropes. MoneyTropes are high on their list of favorites. Contrast SelflessnessTropes.
