    As stated in the show Mr. Burns is worth quite a bit less than 100 million then he offers lisa $12 million dollars being 10% of what he made to get back on top meaning his liquid assets are $120 million. Mr. Burns doesn't even belong on that list. And as for Scrooge McDuck only being worth 10 billion or so, his money is a plot device therefore infinitely enumerable. The only way they ever count his money is as "all", "none", "some" or comparitively to some other undisclosed amount of money as when he was competing against GlomGold for the firefly fruit. No numbers are ever involved so where exactly does this number than can't exist come from?...

    PS- Also does anyone else but me wonder how the hell he got ahold of so much gold bullion in coin form? The Duck Tales currency is obviously american since he has his #1 dime and they decided to duplicate all those quarters that one time. It seems to me converting all your money to such a rare coin would take way too much money to be worth it. I guess maybe he could have his own mint and use regular gold bars though.

    Ah, here is the topic I was looking for.



    I did post this in a much longer thread but anyhow, hands down McDuck is the richest charcter period.


    forbes lists him at 28 Billion dollars. Well that is nowhere close to where he should be.


    Given he has 3 cubic acres of cash in his money bin alone and given if it was a combo of nickes dimes pennies quarters half dollars and dollars he probalby has nearly 1 trillion or more in there.


    And he stated once that shis is only petty cash. He owns diamond mines, thousands of busniesses and treasures, artifacts and more things that you can imagine.


    DuckTales characters within the show have stated that he has anywhere from Quadrillions to Quintillions of dollars.


    Now,a few quadrillion dollars is one million billions, and quintillion is one billion billion


    Along with this, Donald Duck once stated the fortune his uncle has is


    $500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.16


    The number above if each dollar was the size of a ping pong ball it would cover the earth over 50 miles deep.


    So if you took Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, the Fords, the kennedys, the waltons, the sultan of Burnai, the guy who owns Ikea, every single pro athelte in the world, every single movie and TV and broadway star in the world, every laywer, doctor rock star and CEO in the world and added up their entire wealth, the amount they have in total would make them look like a pauper in the poorest 3rd world country by comparison.


    Becasue I am guessing the total wealth between all these people is no more than 5 trillion dollars.


    taking only the money bin, and say there is 2.5 trillion in there, that alone equals all that.


    But taking the lowest number of a few quadrillion dollars that would be 1-2 thosand times the amount, or a few quintillion would be 1-2 million times the amount of all those people combined.


    So take for example this: If you knew someone that has say $50 million the lowest number would be compared to someone who has $50,000 in total. if you take the quintillions that would be like taking aguy with $50 million and comaring him to someone that has $50


    But if you take the number above that donald stated, $500 X10^75 and 16 cents well that is the equlvelent of


    500 trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion thousand dollars


    He could buy the entire universe with that if he felt like.


    Or if he spent $500 trillion per second it would take 3,170,979,198,380,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years to spend it all


    so scrooge is hand down number one. I don't care what forbes says.
