** In ''VideoGame/MaxPayne3'' you can turn your weapons into golden guns by collecting their respective parts scattered around the levels. Collecting them all grants you the "[[Franchise/JamesBond License to Kill]]" achievement.

** In ''VideoGame/MaxPayne3'' you can turn your weapons into golden guns by collecting their respective parts scattered around the levels. Collecting them all grants you the "[[Franchise/JamesBond License to Kill]]" achievement. In addition to looking cool, they gain a boost to damage and magazine capacity.

* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', [[spoiler:R.K. Maroon]] owns a gold plated Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless, which Eddie takes and temporarily uses. Roger himself wields it during his (unsuccessful) BigDamnHeroes moment in the climax.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', the Spy's unlockable gun The Ambassador. To quote the official description: "With its rosewood grip and likeness of your enemy's mother (please send photo) engraved on the barrel" it definitely fits quite nicely in the BlingBlingBang category.
** The Ambassador has a golden trigger as well.

** The Engineer got the Golden Wrench, made of pure australium. It can turn anything it kills into more australium. Similarly, the Saxy awards can be considered this as well, especially since they're actual awards.

* At one point in ''TheWheelOfTime'', Rand Al'Thor is presented with a sword with a hilt encrusted with so many jewels it was impossible to hold. He keeps the sword but insists on having a new hilt made, and he gives the jewels back to the person who gave him the sword.
* In the VorkosiganSaga, some Vor Lords made use of ''solid gold bullets'' in their muzzle-loading weapons, during Barrayar's period of isolation. Mark sees some in a display case, including one with a card saying it was recovered ''from the brain'' of its target. He muses that at close range, they must have hit like bricks, but at long range, they likely missed.

Why, gold plate your gun of course! Or maybe add [[GemEncrusted diamonds]] and all sorts of valuable crap just to show people you mean business. Or otherwise personalize your gun. Thankfully, most shows don't assume ViewersAreMorons by stating that a weapon is solid gold, as this would not be a very good idea due to the metal's relative softness. [[SilverBullet Silver weapons]] are seldom featured under this trope, since they're generally reserved for [[SilverHasMysticPowers fighting supernatural creatures]], plus the cultural view that silver is "second best". This trope is used to show that either the guy is so good he can spend the money he earns killing people, or he likes to add a "personal touch" to his weaponry.

* In D20Modern, there is a rule stating that you can increase the purchase DC (i.e. cost) of an item by 1 in order to get luxury features on it. It is clearly stated that it carries no benefits apart from knowing you have bought the very best. So any character who has the money can buy a gold plated gun.

*** In Digimon X Evolution, both [=WarGreymon=] X and [=MetalGarurumon=] X have some pretty shiny armor, and MetalGarurumon X sure does pack [[MoreDakka quite some firepower. His arsenal consists of several missiles, that he can apparently create more of at-will, and a freaking gatling gun arm cannon]]. He probably has the most Dakka of any Digimon ever created, as little as it may sound like.
