Of course, there are plenty of ''real'' large numbers ending in -illion, usually formed with boring Latin prefixes - TheOtherWiki, as always, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_large_numbers has a list.]]

RidiculousFutureInflation can be a cause of this. Usually a ComedyTrope. Justified when a character really uses another notation, or when he ''has'' to make a number up because what he's describing is even bigger than a googolplex[[note]](the highest rank in the "official" notation compiled by TheOtherWiki.[[/note]]. For money, compare ZillionDollarBill and contrast UndisclosedFunds. For units of measurement, compare FantasticMeasurementSystem.

** Probably set in motion by [[http://xkcd.com/207/ this comic]]. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ackermann_function Ackermann Function]] tends to return huge values for even the smallest numbers (TheOtherWiki says A(4,3) has 6.031*10^19727 digits). Now imagine Graham's number as the input. "AUGHHH" indeed.
