** ''Engraving'' a gun (with or without precious metal inlays) is when it gets really expensive, especially if it's an elaborate job done by a skilled artist rather than just machine-engraved. While not as common now as it was up through the mid-20th century, this remains a way for wealthy gun enthusiasts to show off their passion for both firepower and bling.

* Gold bits In ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'', golden fittings are the most obvious a sign of Orokin technology technology.
** Prime Weapons, and
in ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}''.a sense [[BlingOfWar Prime Warframes]] definitely qualify.
** Downplayed, but regular Tenno guns qualify as well with their well-made wooden furniture. Almost like you're shooting enemies with a hand-crafted work of art.

* 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, a fan-made replica of the personal weapon of pulp superhero The Silver Shroud. Its metal parts are not exactly silver but much more shiny than the standard steel parts (obviously an amateur modification by fanboy Kent Connolly, going by the tiny bits of old finish still visible on the gun), and it sports higher-quality wooden components, but is functionally identical to any regular submachine gun in terms of stats and upgrade options. The Operators gang in the ''Nuka-World'' DLC carries AK-pattern rifles with a much snazzier, high-polished chrome finish everywhere but the sights and dust cover, along with a nice cherry stain on the wood furniture.

* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'': The [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas Protoss]] have two color schemes for their armor: gold-plated (High Templar), and silver-plated (Dark Templar). This also extends to their buildings. All of their armor and architecture is crafted with ornate curves, [[PowerGlows glowing crystals]], and TronLines. As a result, it's effectively impossible to play as Protoss and ''not'' invoke this trope. In-story, the main Protoss fleet is even referred to as the ''Golden Armada''.

* As a general, Napoleon had (relatively) modest weapons, and once he became emperor he rarely took up arms himself. But, in order to blend in with the European royalty and thereby set them at ease, he took up hunting even though he was a terrible shot and disliked the activity. As part of the charade, he accepted the gifts of some profoundly ornate guns for those hunts. But what he really delighted in was old-fashioned bling in the form of clothes, jewelery, and ornate versions of functional buildings.

* In any FirstPersonShooter game that has a modding community behind it, you can bet your guns that someone will make a gold or silver texture for the guns in the game.



* ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'' has golden variations on several of the basic weapons. They have a faster rate of fire than their normal counterparts, and as long as a character is holding one when they go through a portal, the player can choose it to replace that character's starter weapon on subsequent runs.
