** The "chairman" of the House (formerly the Lord Chancellor, now the Lord Speaker) does ''not'' get an actual chair but rather sits on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolsack Woolsack]], which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: a (large, square) red sack full of wool. Originally, this signified the importance of wool to England's economy; however, the sack was destroyed when the Houses of Parliament were bombed in TheBlitz, and after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, it was replaced with a new sack stuffed with wool from all over UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealth (representing Commonwealth unity and, one supposes, the ongoing love affair between English-speakers and wool). Despite the absence of a back or arms (it does have a small backrest), it's apparently quite comfortable.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': [[RealityWarper Discord]] fashions himself quite an evil-looking throne - a dark gray and deep red color scheme, a stylized skull shape with pointed teeth at the top, and a huge pair of antlers sprouting from the skull for added demonic imagery - and plops it right in the middle of Ponyville so that he can observe [[RealityIsOutToLunch the chaos he's wrought]] firsthand.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'':
** 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.
