Angband made me win a pub quiz

I'm an eager pub quizzer, and some weeks ago, I finally got to use my Angband knowledge in a quiz.

The question was, roughly paraphrased:
"Which fictional creature, who is a dragon from the Tolkien Universe, is on top of Forbes list of the richest fictional creatures in the world in <some year>."

None of my team had any idea, including me. I have never even heard of the list, and I havent read a single word of Tolkien. I, however, know pretty well all the unique D's in Angband.

We almost answered Ancalagon or Glaudrung, until someone thought they recognized Smaug from the list.

Made sense, Smaug the Golden.
