* Subverted in ''Film/ThreeAmigos!''. Ned has to outdraw the enemy (who is also, incidentally, his biggest fan) in a shootout. Like the other Amigos, he has a gun designed to be used in a movie, pearl handle and silver inlay. TheDragon comes up and removes it from his holster, replacing it with a regular gun that is almost too heavy for him to lift. "You want to die with a ''man's'' gun. Not a sissy gun like this." Ned proceeds to win the shootout.

** In an ironic subversion, titanium isn't actually ''that'' expensive most specialist alloys cost four-to-five times more than common stainless steel, and you actually don't ''need'' them for the AR-style rifle: the original AR-15 and its military derivative M-16 had receivers cast from the entirely mundane aluminum. So even the cheapest titanium alloy available, just about twice as expensive as a stainless steel by weight (and you'd need ''less'' of it for the same part), would do the $100,000 pricetag is [[ConspicuousConsumption purely a vanity marketing/engineering]].

* [[PlasmaCannon Powergun]] barrels and the armor on the titular mercenaries' tanks in the ''Literature/HammersSlammers'' series are made out of solid iridium, the second densest known metal and also very lustrous and very rare on Earth, though asteroid mining significantly reduced the price. Of particular note is Joachim Steuben's highly embellished personal pistol: "the receiver ... had been gilded and carven by someone with a penchant for fleshy orchids. The stems and leaves had been filled with niello while the veins remained in a golden tracery. The petals themselves were formed from a breathtakingly purple alloy of copper and gold." Joachim can [[ImprobableAimingSkills shoot a man in the head from a kilometer away]], or [[QuickDraw kill three men at close range in two-fifths of a second]], with this weapon.

* Quite a few Knightmare Frames in ''CodeGeass'' have lots of gold parts or trim, primarily those used by elites like the Knights of the Round and leaders like Zero and Cornelia.

* ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'' has golden variations on all of their basic weapons. They have minor improvements over their regular counterparts, such as a faster rate of fire, and as long as a character is holding one when they die, it replaces their starter weapon the next time they play.
