Mario Mario is in at number 15 on the Forbes list of the richest fictional characters. Other noteworthy characters on the list: Lara Croft, Mr. Monopoly, and C. Montgomery Burns. Here’s what they had to say about Mario:

Mustachioed Italian plumber leaps onto Fictional 15 after decades of collecting gold coins from sewers, clouds, oceans. Dabbled in other trades, including boxing referee, race-car driver, golf pro and doctor, but maintains the best way to get rich is smashing brick blocks. Humble profession belies many accomplishments: defeated King Koopa, repeatedly saved Mushroom Kingdom, rescued damsel in distress from giant, barrel-flinging ape. Twin brother Luigi remains closest companion. Says Mario, enthused about newfound wealth: “Woohoo! It’s-a me, Mario!” New member.

Way to go Mario! I think Mario will move up the list later this year when he springs into the Galaxy.
