* 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.

* ''Videogame/TheSecretWorld'' has golden skins for both Main and Auxilliary weapons. The only source of main ones is "Golden weekends", and their name contain some sort of reference to greed, vanity or showing-off. Auxiliary ones are bought from vendor for 1 <i>billion</i> of in-game currency - sum, that even super-hardcore players should make some effort to accumulate. Both serve as BraggingRightsReward, lacking any special effects.
** There is also Yakuza gangster Daimon Kyota in Tokyo area. At one point he makes his BigDamnHeroes entry among other Yokyo NPCs, dual wielding golden pistols.
