* Judge Dredd: Deputy Chief Judge Jura Edgar, head of the Public Surveillance Unit (the Justice department's "FBI") sits in a hovering wheelchair, hence her nickname," J. Edgar Hover": the character is based on a curious amalgam of J. Edgar Hoover, Margaret Thatcher, and......The Mekon!

** Gredinald's throne (later Wis). Turns out to be a potent magical artifact too.
** Haazheel Thorn's throne is a massive crystalline beast with SpikesOfVillainy that makes the [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Iron Throne]] look friendly.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' the prophets glide on gravity thrones, which have DeflectorShields and can shoot lasers. Normally Master Chief vs. an old man wouldn't be much of a fight, so it's a good thing the Cool Chair fixes that.
** Every Shipmaster has his own on the bridge of his ship. It's a fairly simple gravity throne, minus any of the Prophet's offensive attachements (presumably), but the simple fact that Elites like Rtas Vadum and Thel Vadam direct planetwide destruction from them is enough to make them cool.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Rakshata, creator of the Guren and Japan's other [[HumongousMecha Knightmare Frames]], has a Cool Couch upon which she's often lounging. It's even on the bridge of the Black Knights' battleship in the second season, prompting fan jokes about it being a mini-Knightmare.

* The Iron Throne in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is intentionally CoolButInefficient. Aegon the Conqueror took the swords of all the defeated lords of Westeros and forged them with dragonfire into a scary but still very sharp throne, saying that a king should never sit easy. Kings often cut themselves on the throne, and legend states that it has killed at least one of them (thought that king may have been DrivenToSuicide and impaled himself on the throne).

** When Lord Snapcase (not-yet Homicidal Lord Snapcase) replaces his successor Mad Lord Winder, the first thing he does is ask if the chair swivels. The secretary responds he can get a skilled swiveler first thing in the morning.

*** The Speaker of Canada's House of Commons also gets a big fancy chair, minus the built-in toilet. Unlike Britain, everyone else also gets a chair, but they're rather basic compared to the Speaker's chair. In addition, the Canadian Senate actually has ''three'' thrones, one for the Speaker, and two more behind it for the monarch/governor general and his/her spouse (generally only used when Parliament is being opened or the King/Queen is visiting Parliament).
