%% The ''VideoGame/TrailsSeries'' uses Mira.

to:

%% * The ''VideoGame/TrailsSeries'' uses Mira.Mira, which seem to be universally used in all of Western Zemuria, at the very least.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2'' rewards players with "dosh" for killing specimens. This is at least semi-justified in that the game takes place over the whole of Europe and includes non-European Union countries.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheAdventureGame'' had drogna, the main currency of planet Arg. Working out the value of drogna coins[[note]]The number of sides of the shape on the center, multiplied by a value corresponding to the shape's color - red was 1, orange was 2, and so on up to blue. For example, a green triangle coin is worth 12 drogna.[[/note]] was a crucial part of one of the show's most recurring puzzles. Some adventuring parties would also find themselves using drogna coins.


* The main currency in ''Franchise/StarWars'' is Republic (and later Imperial) [[WeWillSpendCreditsInTheFuture credits]], but other currencies (such as druggats on Tatooine in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'') show up occasionally.

* The main currency in ''Franchise/StarWars'' is Republic (and later Imperial) [[WeWillSpendCreditsInTheFuture credits]], but other currencies (such as druggats on Tatooine in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'') show up occasionally.occasionally; for instance, the title character of ''Series/TheMandalorian'' requests payment in some other currency than Imperial credits since the Empire has recently been abolished and they're basically worthless now, so he's paid in "Mon Cala flan" instead, which appear to be coins made of ''jelly''. Credits are apparently also called dataries, as Qui-Gon Jinn first says that he has Republic dataries while bartering with Watto, who then contextualizes it for the audience by calling them "credits."


Added DiffLines:

* The societies in ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' use metal shards harvested from machines as a PracticalCurrency--in addition to serving as money, they're also used to craft arrows and other types of ammunition.




Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/IdleMineRemix'': The game's third currency is Planet Coins, or PC for short, which are occasionally gained from mined asteroids or planets.


* When a medium of exchange is required on ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'', a number is given, but the unit is left unspecified, e.g., "how much do I owe" "Three."

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AlnamNoKiba'' and ''Alnam no Tsubasa'' call their currancy Romu.


** The series, save for the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' subseries, uses macca. It has some relevance as a power source for demons.

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'''s major houses each use a distinct national currency, colloquially known as D-bills, K-bills, S-bills, M-bills and L-bills[[note]]"Davion", "Kurita", "Steiner", "Marik" and "Liao," respectively[[/note]], each also having an official name, for instance, the Capellan Commonwealth's "L-Bill" is officially the Yuan, while the Free Worlds League "M-Bill" is the Eagle. The most encountered and important currency in the Inner Sphere, however, is [=ComStar's=] C-Bill, which, officially, represents one unit of transmission on the Hyperpulse Generators that [=ComStar=] uses for FTL communication. However, said communication is seen as enough of a scarce and precious commodity that the bills have taken on a use as a currency and legal tender.

The C-Bill has an official canon exchange rate that fluctuates according to what's going on in the latest sourcebook but generally hovers around ten US dollars (plus or minus a few cents), although the most recent major story event involves the HPG network being knocked offline across human space by a massive, as-yet unexplained cyber-attack it's likely to take a fairly major hit. Exchange rates for so-called House bills, by contrast, are rarely mentioned.


** In the Mario {{RPG}}s ''Videogame/SuperMarioRPG'', ''Videogame/PaperMario'' and ''Videogame/MarioAndLuigi'', which feature Coins, as in the [[FollowTheMoney coins that float in the air in the platformers]], and no, not coins ''of'' a currency; Coins ''are'' the currency (instead of dollars or yen or euros or whatever).

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/IWokeUpPilotingTheStrongestStarship'' uses the Enel, which is noted by the protagonist, Hiro, to be roughly 100 yen. This indicates that it's roughly one US dollar, give or take a few pennies.


** The Western translations use "Pokémon Dollars" ("poké" or "pokéyen" in {{Fanon}}), the symbol of which looks like the yen symbol (¥) with the Y replaced by a P. The Japanese version just uses yen, (even in [[GlobalCurrency regions based on New York and France]]), which is why costs and payouts appear so oddly high to non-Japanese players.
