Forbes’ list of the 15 richest fictional characters

In addition to its annual list of the richest real life people in the world, Forbes also puts out a yearly list of the 15 richest fictional characters, using a bunch of math and mumbo jumbo to try and assess a character’s real-world holdings.

"Net worth estimates are based on an analysis of the fictional character’s source material, and where possible, valued against known real-world commodity and share price movements. In the case of privately held fictional concerns, we seek to identify comparable fictional public companies. All figures are as of market close, April 1, 2012."

Yeah, that. The number one on the list is Smaug, above, from the Lord of the Rings series, sitting on a whopping $62 billion in gold and jewels.

2. Scrooge McDuck, $51.9 billion

3. Carlisle Cullen from ‘Twilight’, $36.3 billion

4. Jed Clampett, The Beverly Hillbillies, $9.8 billion

5. Tony Stark, Iron Man, $9.3 billion

6. Richie Rich, $8.9 billion

7. Charles Foster Kane, Citizen Kane, $8.3 billion

8. Bruce Wayne, Batman, $6.9 billion

9. Forrest Gump, $5.7 billion

10. Mr. Monopoly, $2.5 billion

11. Lisbeth Salander from the Millenium Series, $2.4 billion

12. Tywin Lannister, Song of Fire and Ice/Game of Thrones, $2.1 billion

13. C. Montgomery Burns, The Simpsons, $1.3 billion

14. Robert Crawley, Downton Abbey, $1.1 billion

15. Jo Bennett, The Office, $1 billion

Not a bad list, but one omission I can see right off the top of my head is Gomez Addams, who is definitely in the billion dollar club. Though considering the comic or the TV show or the movies ever really talked about where the Addamses got their wealth from or in what form it’s in would make it hard to estimate.
