As my first “Top 10 List”, and in tribute to New Year’s and its constant countdown theme, I am going to list my Top 10 Rich Fictional Characters. This list is not depicting characters placement based on their monetary value, but how they rank as my favorites. For the purpose of this list, fictional characters will include any prominent character in geek culture that are show to be ridiculously wealthy.

10. Rich Uncle Pennybags (The Monopoly Man)

Though wealthy he may be, his damn game makes us all throw the board game off the table when things aren’t going our way after 5 hours of gameplay.

9. Willy Wonka (From the Chocolate Factory)

Willy Wonka
He might be fictional, but I dare anyone to say they’ve never tried his Nerds or Ever-Lasting Gobstoppers! Plus he has a tribe of little-people to do his bidding…

8. Oliver Queen (The Green Arrow)

Oliver Queen
Some may call him the Batman wannabe… What with his Millionaire-Playboy identity, his trusty ward, and arrow-plane, but the man pulls of one fantastic beard!

7. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)

Lara Croft
She may be number 7 on this list, but she’s number 1 for Drop Dead Sexy Wealthy Fictional Character!

6. Token Black (South Park)

Token Black
One of the only African American people in all of South Park, but also it’s richest resident! “Please God, send more rich kids… to my town…”

5. Tony Stark (Iron Man)

Tony Stark
He may be a alcoholic, opinionated, heart-breaking, rich-as-they-come, super powerful, good-looking, …. wait, where was I going with this?

4. C. Montgomery Burns (The Simpsons)

C. Montogomery Burns
Almost killed by a baby, but can still release the hounds with the best of them!

3. Ri¢hie Ri¢h (Harvey Comics)

Richie Rich
Come on, he spells his name with cent symbols! How much more rich can you get? Plus, I’m pretty sure he became Casper when he died…

2. $crooge McDuck (Ducktales, and other Disney Cartoons/Stories)

Scrooge McDuck
Sorry Richie… This duck spells his name with a dollar sign! Plus he swims through a bin of hard cash money, and though it’s probably not sanitary, it is super rich-pimpin.

And the winner is (cue valiant trumpets…)…..

1. Bruce Wayne (The Batman)

Bruce Wayne
Rich, handsome, peak physical condition, superior intellect, AND his own butler. He has a few parent and obsession issues, but it’s not like he takes in young boys off the street and eludes to minor homosexual references over the course of 75 years…

And that’s the List of Top 10 Rich Fictional Characters! What do you think? Leave some comments below and let me know if you agree, or if you don’t agree. If you don’t agree, who would you have left out and added?

    Of course Bruce Wayne was number one, and Richie Rich and Casper are done by the same publisher, Harvey Comics.
