* Thranduil's antlered throne in ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' which is carved from stone and an impressive part of the architecture in his main hall.


Added DiffLines:

* King Samrick's throne in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' may not be set on a dias or under a baldachin but it doesn't need such added decorations to make it more impressively large as it is [[http://www.charbythevampirate.com/comic/1050 easily bigger than a house]], [[GoldMakesEverythingShiny gilded]], with red upholstery and a tail hole for comfort.

** According to Creator/WilWheaton, the chair was so cool that, by unspoken consensus, no ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'' cast or crew member ever sat upon it unless 1) they were Creator/PatrickStewart or 2) [[YouAreInCommandNow the script specified it]]. (Visiting celebrities got to do whatever they wanted, of course.)

* Somewhat subverted in ''Garfield's PET FORCE'', a series of short young-adult novellas written by Jim Davis, in which {{Garfield}}, Odie, Nermal, Arlene and Pooky are sucked into the universe of a comic book starring characters conveniently similar to them. The planet they end up on is a monarchy, and the king is...Jon Arbuckle. Since being royalty can do little to change the fact that he's still fundamentally Jon, he's had the traditional throne replaced with a recliner upholstered in naugahyde, chosen on the basis that stains wipe right off.

** Great Demon King Piccolo's giant chair is decorated with skulls and looks like it is made out of bone-like materials. Toriyama later uses that chair as the basic for designs God's spaceship and the Namekian buildings. The Grand Elder has the same chair as Great Demon King Piccolo's sans the skull decoration.

* William Albacastle / Willy Pete, authorial character of the WhiteWolf ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' supplement ''Iteration X'' and a major character in the novel ''Judgement Day'' by Bruce Baugh has a damn cool chair. The fact he's a technophillic quadrapalegic who uses waldoes to build telepresence drones and whose motorized wheelchair houses treads, robotic arms, and Hades knows what else gives him a good excuse to have one.

* A GenreSavvy moment in ''Series/{{Rome}}'' has Cassius trying to convince Brutus that the cool chair Caesar has ordered for the forum is actually a throne and indicative of a thirst for power. Brutus claims that "thrones are usually more decorative. That is decidedly plain and chair-like."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'' had this scene where Snake, feeling uncertain of what to do next, picks a chair out of post-apocalyptic rubble and briefly sits on it to rest. As plain as the chair might've been, he looked [[MundaneMadeAwesome chill and cool enough]] that this was among the scenes that got echoed in the sequel, ''Film/EscapeFromLA''.


Added DiffLines:

** The chair interactions typically involve characters who are somehow related to Dracula, who is rarely seen outside his throne room. In fact, his monster form at the end of ''Symphony of the Night'' was literally just his throne with arms and grotesque shapes growing out of it.

** The chair Aizen is bound to when imprisoned in Muken is extremely large and made out a substance that makes it almost invincible. When Aizen attempts to use Kidou #90 to break the chair and gain his freedom, the chair isn't even scratched. All he can do is admire its construction.

The chair became a MemeticBadass because of that, being dubbed as "Chair-kun" by the fans.
