** In ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', Bruce Wayne can bury the cost of the Franchise/{{Justice League| of America}} Watchtower in his aerospace budget. To put this in perspective, the smaller and far more primitive International Space Station cost over $150 billion by the time construction was completed. He is also funding his secret life of fighting crime using assorted [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys wonderful toys]]. An entire issue of ''Robin'' was devoted to delivering a cost accounting of Batman's arsenal. In ''Film/BatmanBegins'', Bruce and Alfred decide that the best way to disguise their purchase of ears for Batman costumes is to [[RefugeInAudacity buy 10,000 of them]].

** As of The Comicbook/{{New 52}}, Oliver Queen, aka ComicBook/GreenArrow, is one too. While he already had Queen Industries, he was nowhere near the level of Wayne Enterprises or [=LexCorp=]. Now, Q-Core, his current financial endeavor, is Wayne Ent.'s main competition in the technology sector and basically the [=DCU's=] equivalent of [[UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh Apple]].

** Roberto da Costa, AKA Sunspot, is another example. His father was an extremely wealthy and influential Afro-Brazilian businessman, and when he died, Roberto inherited his company and all his wealth. While an Avenger, Roberto famously defeated A.I.M. not through violence, but by simply buying them out and firing all of their villainous higher-ups. He now funds the Comicbook/NewAvengers out of his own pocket, and is not shy about flaunting his wealth to motivate his "employees"; when one of his scientists comes up with a successful plan to save the day, he rewards her by buying her a new Lexus.
** TíChalla, aka the BlackPanther, was an example until recently. TíChalla is king of Wakanda, meaning he legally controls the trade and distribution of [[{{Unobtainium}} Vibranium]] (Captain Americaís shield is made of that stuff and Adamantium), and according to the comics, Vibranium costs $10,000 ''per gram''. And according to ''Doomwar #1'', the Wakandan vaults have 10,000 tons of it. Do the math: itís all worth ''$9.7 trillion'', more than the GPA of the nonfictional world. Unfortunately, a plot by Doctor Doom to loot the Vibranium forced TíChalla to use a failsafe that rendered the stockpile inert and potentially worthless, but that doesnít mean it will always be. While not quite as loose with his money as Iron Man or Angel, he's also used his wealth to make a few pretty significant contributions over the years. Case in point: he provided the Avengers with their first Quinjet, and continued to provide more advanced versions of the craft for a number of years.
** Danny Rand, the ''ImmortalIronFist'', is pretty fabulously wealthy too. He notably replaced Tony Stark as the bankroller of the Comicbook/NewAvengers during the period where they were branded fugitives after ''Comicbook/CivilWar''.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', Adrian Veidt became absurdly rich on the patent for the spark hydrants that power the electric cars of the Watchmen world. He also owns dozens of other companies, but his ultimate money-wasting venture is that of [[spoiler:creating a massive "alien" creature on a private island which he then teleports into New York City and "saves the world" from]]. Oh, and he owns a palace in Antarctica, too. The funny thing is that he was already rich as a teenager, then gave away the wealth and, starting from scratch, built a second fortune. The movie features Veidt on the cover of ''Forbes'' magazine, and the company included him in a "fictional 500" list of richest fictional characters on their website.

** "I am gold, I am wealth, I'm the power of money which none can resist. You must not compare me to Kings or Emperors or anyone who lives upon the Earth. I have only two rivals: One in Heaven, the other in Hell. For only God, if God exists, and Satan, if Satan exists, can say as I do: Everything in the World is mine, for I own it all!"
* The House of Lannister from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are famous for being astonishingly rich thanks largely to controlling a large chunk of the realm's gold mines, tithing the lords of even more, and being ridiculously good at finance. They are the main creditors of the Iron Throne, and their unofficial motto is "a Lannister always pays his debts."
** Possibly a partial subversion, according to [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2013/04/17/goldbugs_in_westeros_house_tyrell_is_richer_than_house_lannister.html this Slate article]]. It argues that House Tyrell may become richer than them when winter comes, and may already BE wealthier in the first place.
* From ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', Silk, AKA Prince Kheldar. In ''the Malloreon'', people who are introduced to him will identify him as "the richest man in the world," though he admits that there might still be some governments that are richer than him. Interestingly, while he readily considers the art of making money "The Great Game," he has absolutely no interest in the money itself, calling it "nothing more than a way to keep count of the score." On at least one occasion he willingly left all the cash and valuables he had gathered to that point behind. Oh, yeah, he took a moment to sigh over the loss, then just sorta tossed it over his shoulder and never looked back.
* In The Literature/NightsDawn Trilogy by Creator/PeterFHamilton we have the members of the B7 security council, the shady cabal running special security operations for the government of planet Earth, Govcentral. Officially. Unofficially, the members are about [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 400 year-old]] super-capitalist tycoons who BodySurf every few decades, and secretly control Earth and many other planets. Their financial institutions are said to support a "healthy percentage of the human race" (which is spread across 800+ planets throughout the Milky Way).
* In ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' Willy Wonka owns the world's largest chocolate factory (so big it has an entire subterranean river system made from liquid chocolate) and develops things like teleportation just to boost his advertising revenues. At one time he had a huge human workforce that he spontaneously sacked in its entirety due to industrial espionage issues (severance pay, anyone?); he then imported ''an entire unknown nation of people IN SECRET'' just to staff his factory, and had ''enough cash stockpiled to allow him to do this while the factory was closed and he was receiving no income''. Better yet, he pays the Oompa-Loompas wages not in money but in leftover cacao beans, so every penny spent on a Wonka bar goes straight to him! While Wonka tends to laugh a lot, he laughs ''really'' hard in [[Literature/CharlieAndTheGreatGlassElevator the sequel]] when Charlie's family is concerned about money, telling them he "has ''plenty'' of ''that!''"
** In the [[Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory 2013 stage musical adaptation]], Sir Robert Salt -- SpoiledBrat Veruca's dad and a billionaire himself -- questions Wonka as to the "point" of the elaborate Chocolate Room, as only its waterfall (which mixes the chocolate river's contents) seems to have a practical, money-making application. As it turns out, the rest of the room was created ''solely as a personal, private work of art''; Wonka is a firm believer in the concept of DoingItForTheArt and prefers to use his fortune in the service of creating new things (if only for himself) rather than conventional ConspicuousConsumption.

* In ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'', a scene in the novel shows Edmond Dantes listing his assets, totaling an estimated value of 120 million francs, an impossibly huge figure by 1838 standards (As a comparison, Napoleon Bonaparte's personal wealth in 1814 was estimated at somewhere in the region of 80 million francs), and this is the near the end of the story, when he has already spent a large portion of his fortune. He is able to effectively "resurrect" a ship confirmed as lost at sea in a matter of weeks, is implied to control one of the most powerful banks in Europe, owns a fleet of ships, and single-handedly toys with the French financial market specifically to screw a single person.

** Of course Psalm 115:6 does say "The heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to mankind," but the preceding examples suggest this should be interpreted as "given as a tenancy" and not "given outright ownership of". See also the parable of the tenants reported in the gospels of Matthew (21:33-41), Mark (12:1-9) and Luke (20:9-16).

* Wrestling/{{Ted DiBiase}}, ProfessionalWrestling's original "Million Dollar Man". So rich, he would flaunt his wealth by cramming $100 bills down the throats of his fallen opponents until they choked on them -- at which point, his manservant, Wrestling/{{Virgil}}, would take the money back. He lived by the motto, "Everybody's got a price!" and he proved it by, at various points, essentially buying Wrestling/AndreTheGiant, Wrestling/NikolaiVolkoff, and Wrestling/{{Tatanka}}. The only man he couldn't buy? Hulk Hogan, who turned down his overtures to buy the WWF Championship for obscene amounts of money. Eventually, he just made his own championship belt, the Million Dollar Belt, a creation of solid gold and diamonds that cost over one million dollars, and which served purely as a monument to his incredible wealth.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', one of Asmodeus' outfits costs about as much as a large country spends on food in a year. It just goes up from there.
** Additionally, he wields an extremely powerful [[MagicStaff Magic Staff]] made of pure ruby. It is said to be worth 1,000,000 gold pieces--''considering its gem value only!''
** Pretty much all high level characters fall under this trope.

* Uncle Scrooge of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' has a towering building he calls his "money bin" full of money. He swims, skis, and otherwise plays around in it. This isn't even the sum of all his money, just his liquid assets - he also owns a large number of companies. And he earned it all square! Ironically, despite his opulent mansion, he is also quite the penny-pincher, and doesn't like spending any more than is absolutely necessary.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', Vlad Masters. As prominent as Bill Gates, except shown to be much, much richer. The man is a billionaire with a huge castle in Wisconsin along with a huge home by the Rockies. Owns several of his own companies (i.e. Dalv), as well as many others he literally took over (like Mastersoft, formerly Microsoft). Owns state of the art ghost hunting technology and can easily pay to have everything rebuilt time and time again with no financial worry. Can pay for a professional ghost hunting team with superior technology once and easily set a million-dollar bounty on a single ghost. The only things he can't buy are [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Maddie's love, Danny's respect, and the Green Bay Packers]].
** He does state (and it's taken as WordOfDante), that he used his ghost abilities to commit invisible burglaries and later [[GrandTheftMe control people]] and get them to give him their money.
** And also, Danny's best friend, Sam, whose family is extremely wealthy because her great-grandfather invented the machine that twirls cellophane around deli toothpicks; when Tucker finds out about this and asks Sam whether her family owns things such as private jet and private yacht, she says yes. She also has a private movie theatre that's attached to a private bowling alley in the basement.

** Of course, the wealth of these characters are dwarfed by that of TíChalla, aka the BlackPanther, who is not only the richest superhero in comics, but no doubt the ''richest fictional character of all time''. At least he was until recently. TíChalla is king of Wakanda, meaning he legally controls the trade and distribution of [[{{Unobtainium}} Vibranium]] (Captain Americaís shield is made of that stuff and Adamantium), and according to the comics, Vibranium costs $10,000 ''per gram''. And according to ''Doomwar #1'', the Wakandan vaults have 10,000 tons of it. Do the math: itís all worth ''$9.7 trillion'', more than the GPA of the nonfictional world. Unfortunately, a plot by Doctor Doom to loot the Vibranium forced TíChalla to use a failsafe that rendered the stockpile inert and potentially worthless, but that doesnít mean it will always be. While not quite as loose with his money as Iron Man or Angel, he's also used his wealth to make a few pretty significant contributions over the years. Case in point: he provided the Avengers with their first Quinjet, and continued to provide more advanced versions of the craft for a number of years.

* There are [[FandomSpecificPlot numerous]] ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fics out there where, in addition to his already sizeable inheritence, Harry inherits even more money from Sirius Black (and often several fortunes from other ancestors such as Merlin and Gryffindor that weren't included in his original inheritance for some reason). It's not uncommon for him to have more gold in his vault than exists in the world. Some stories also have 'Potter family investments', which tend to be very long-term investments in very profitable companies.
