Ever wondered how much your favorite game character wealth might be if they lived in our world? There are probably lots of them especially game adapted movies like Batman’s Bruce Wayne and many. But for this one, let’s focus on game characters that are originated from video games. A researched from a UK Based company revealed the real-life wealth of some notable character.

The estimated wealth includes their job, living situation, household income, assets and other streams of income based from their back-story and in-game. (No cheat, included)

1. Lara Croft, Tomb Raider – $1,001,070,890

Famous archaeologist, treasure hunter, and tomb raider Lara Croft is first on our gaming characters rich list, with an estimated wealth of over $1 billion! Lara has amassed this fortune mainly from inheritance from her rich aristocratic parents, estimated to stand at $1 billion1 and being the heir to Croft Manor also adds $991,087 to her net worth2. Lara’s infamous dual pistols and bow and arrows add over $1667 her fortune3, with her Land Rover Defender used in the 2001 movie standing at nearly $34,7454. And that’s without the annual $43,391 income she would be expected to earn as an archaeologist5.

2. Michael De Santa, GTA V – $61,677,638

The second gaming character to feature on the list is former bank robber and career criminal, Michael De Santa, who has an estimated wealth of over $60 million.

Michael also has several vehicles adding $66,0007 to his estimated wealth and a healthy weapon collection adding a further $27,8008. But it’s his life of crime which has brought him the most wealth, with heists pulling him in a total of $43,361,4689. On top of his estimated wealth, Michael is a retired man who could be earning an extra $48,00010 year from his retirement income based on the US average.

Like Michael, Franklin is reaping the rewards of his criminal past, bringing in a total $42,666,583 14 from the larger heists. And this is without the extra $43,59015 per year he could pull in as a Car Repossession Agent if he stuck to his day job!
