If you take a look at the list of the richest people in the world, you will find it mostly dominated by business magnates, investors or chairmen of some big international companies. Just check out the Top 3 of 2015:

Not all that interesting, is it?

I didn’t think so either. The sheer numbers are impressive and Bill Gates’ position at the top of the list didn’t exactly come as a surprise. So why am I writing this then? Well, it’s just a little introduction to a much more interesting list I stumbled across lately: The Forbes Fictional 15.

Each year (save for last year, I guess) Forbes Magazine publishes a list of the 15 richest fictional people from books, movies, comics, television and video games. Take a second to contemplate whom you would see in such a ranking and then have a look at this video or the list below to find out who really were the richest of the rich in 2013.

15. Jay Gatsby ($ 1 billion)
14. Mary Crawley ($ 1.1 billion)
13. Mr. Monopoly ($ 1.2 billion)
12. Lara Croft ($ 1.3 billion)
11. Walden Schmidt ($ 1.3 billion)
10. C. Montgomery Burns ($ 1.5 billion)

7. Richie Rich ($ 5.8 billion)
6. Bruce Wayne ($ 9.2 billion)
5. Charles Foster Kane ($ 11.2 billion)
4. Tony Stark ($ 12.4 billion)
3. Carlisle Cullen ($ 46 billion)
2. Smaug ($ 54.1 billion)
1. Scrooge Mc Duck ($ 65.4 billion)

And here’s a nice infographic with the list from 2012:
