* In ''Series/OnceUponATime'', King Midas gives James (Prince Charming) a golden sword when he's sent off to slay a dragon. The sword actually ''was'' originally intended for show, with some knights on hand to slay the dragon, but because the knights get attacked unexpectedly, Charming has to use the golden sword himself. [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Against all the laws of physics]], it works.

* ''VideoGame/TombRaider: Anniversary'' had silver Uzis and a golden Shotgun as unlockable weapons, which were actually more useful than their regular counterparts. The silver Uzis held more ammo than the regular version and fired at a much faster rate while the golden Shotgun also held more bullets and fired faster, but also [[OneHitPointWonder killed anything with just a single shot, bosses included]]!

Added DiffLines:

* Thanks to modding, it's possible to make any weapon in any game with a gold skin or something that's similarly shiny and full of bling.

* In ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersBackwater'', Fayte's WeaponOfChoice is a silver handgun with the word ''Tempest'' engraved on it, which fires incredibly powerful bolts of elemental energy when loaded with gemstones (which type of energy depends of which gemstone). The downside is, it costs about $5K a shot, although Fayte ''does'' border on the lower end of Fiction500, owning several profitable businesses in Backwater. The known types of energy that can be fired from it and the corresponding ammunition are:
** [[PlayingWithFire Flames:]] Rubies
** [[AnIcePerson Extreme Cold:]] Sapphire
** [[BlowYouAway Kinetic Force:]] Emerald
** [[HolyHandGrenade Holy Light:]] Diamond (Only harms creatures harmed by positive energy or sunlight, and thus she risks [[WeakenedByTheLight hurting herself with it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'': The Valkyrie [[spoiler:Karen]] fights with a spear and shield made out of solid gold. It's noted that the high density of gold means that these tools strike with a lot of momentum, but the softness of gold isn't brought up at all.

Added DiffLines:

* Unique and legendary weapons in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' generally look identical to their basic counterparts, but the game still comes up with one exception: the Silver submachine gun, personal weapon of pulp superhero The Silver Shroud. Its metal parts are not exactly silver but much more shiny than the standard steel parts, and it sports higher-quality wooden components, but is functionally identical to any regular submachine gun in terms of stats and upgrade options.

* In The ''Series/{{Batman}}'' episode "Penguin's Disastrous End", Penguin and his gang have broken into a vault full of gold bullion. To make their escape, they lock themselves in and build a tank out of the gold. Even the shells are made of gold, which he laments when Aunt Hilda plays with the cannon.
