Richest Science Fiction/Fantasy/Fictional character? Might not be who you think...

Forbes - The 2012 Forbes Fictional 15

"It’s a great time to be imaginary. The characters that make up this year’s edition of the Forbes Fictional 15, our annual listing of fiction’s richest, boast an aggregate net worth of $209.5 billion. That’s up a stunning 59% from last year — and it’s enough cash to give $30 to every (real) person on the planet.

On top of the list is the ancient red-golden dragon Smaug, known by hobbits and dwarves across Middle Earth as “Smaug the Tremendous” and “Smaug the Unassessably Wealthy.” Smaug’s personal fortune jumped 16% from last year to $62 billion after wyrm watchers crafted a more detailed analysis of his massive hoard of coins, jewels and antiques.

That's before the Hobbit movies come out. I wonder if Smaug gets a cut?  :P

I still have to wonder at the fact someone gets paid to do this analysis. Up there with the 12 Days of Christmas cost thing they do every year... :/ Still this so much better, I mean, come on, dragon!
