Lightsabers: A Guide to the Weapons of the Force suggests that Sidious constructed his second lightsaber during his Chancellorship, at which time the expense of the metals used to craft it (eg. phrik, electrum, etc.) mattered very little to someone with his "day-to-day wealth and authority" (paraphrasing).

On the other hand, Dooku casually hands out bounties of several million credits.

G0-T0 is also worth noting, since his bounty on Jedi was so great that any bounty hunter who collected it could buy their own planet. That's not to mention the cost of all of his operations, and the fact that he could still nonchalantly wire thousands of credits to the Exile.

The Hutts also come to mind for obvious reasons, as well as Nok Drayan.

Bail funded the Rebellion, minus its fleet and troops. IOW, he did not fund the *whole* Rebellion.

Because....Gram and Mothma provided troops/fleet? So then what was he funding exactly? If they are just providing those things(which could be through things other than wealth), then he's still funding the bigger majority of the Rebellion anyway.

Either way I'm sure he'd make the list.

It means exactly what I said: that Bail did not fund the *whole* Rebellion. He is clearly separating the resources his wealth would fund, from the fleet+troops that Garm and Mothma were to provide. Had Bail stated that his personal wealth would provide for those as well, I would agree with you -- but as it stands, he was not funding the Rebellion in its entirety.

I agree that he's still a rich mofo, though. thumb up

Plagueis and Tenebrous were basically the JP Morgan and Henry Ford of the GFFA.

As Galactic Emperor, one would assume the number of credits at Palpatine's disposal was infinite. So him.

One thing, would Han Solo count? Didn't he win enough in gambling to buy a planet or something which was worth trillions? I can't recall the book though.

Well G0-T0 was handing bounties out of that size, so cheap change in the grand scheme of things.

Sidious, Xizor, Plagueis, Gunray & G0-T0 would be my top 5.

I guess....but then I suppose I'm looking at it from our world perspective, where 10,000 is considered a lot, yet in SW that's brushed off by Luke when he sells his landspeeder enough to get him passage to Alderaan.
