I removed these Zero-Context Example s. Before restoring them, please carefully read the current trope description, make certain these are valid examples, and write descriptions explaining how each work uses the trope.

I removed these examples because they have no sources. Does anyone recognize them?

"Most common with Badass Normal heroes; it's not that superpowered heroes couldn't use the fortune and the free time, but Cosmic Balance seems to say that you can't have both. Narratively speaking, for these characters, having massive wads of cash to blow on designing and building things like a Grappling-Hook Pistol is their superpower."

Okay, so you can't have both actual superpowers and be filthy rich. In the Backyard Sports fanfic The Secret Life Of The Backyard Kids, Jorge (yes, him) has both. Is that okay? Or is he just a God-Mode Sue?

I removed the line at the bottom of the description linking to The Ernest. I don't know which trope the person who added it was going for, but nobody can be The Ernest since it refers a person who doesn't actually exist.
