* The Eastern Empire from Mercedes Lackey's later ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' also features a throne of blades, except it's all the personal weapons of every leader the entire line of Emperors has conquered in ''hundreds of years'' of history.

* The Eastern Empire from Mercedes Lackey's later ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' also features a throne of blades, except it's all the personal weapons of every leader the entire line of Emperors has conquered in ''hundreds of years'' of history. They've also been completely melted down before being added to the throne, so there's no risk of injury if you lean back incautiously.

* In one ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' story, the protagonists were hired to fetch a pillow from a deceased wizard's mansion; Yeagar took a fancy to an Elysium Barcalounger, a fancy chair that had ivory mead cupholders, a Footrest of Pediatric Joy, and Stuffing of Plushiness covered by Upholstery of Mighty Massage. Not believing their employer's warning that [[DontTouchItYouIdiot everything in the house except the pillow was trapped, cursed, or both]], he [[TooDumbToLive convinced Nodwick to pick it up]], and... Well, what happened to them was hidden by a GoryDiscretionShot, but Artax needed a ''squeegee'' to collect their remains before Piffany could use healing magic to restore them.

** In the British House of Commons, only the Speaker has a chair. Everyone else sits on benches. Historically, the Speaker was not allowed to leave the chamber all day while the House was in session, so the chair was also a toilet. It no longer functions as a toilet but apparently the sewer system underneath still exists...

** In the British House of Commons, only the Speaker has a chair. Everyone else sits on benches. Historically, the Speaker was not allowed to leave the chamber all day while the House was in session, so the chair was also used to be flanked by curtains and functioned as a toilet. When necessary, the Speaker could draw the curtains, lift the seat and do his business without ever disrupting the session. It no longer functions as a toilet commode but apparently the sewer system underneath still exists...

** In the British House of Commons, only the Speaker has a chair. Everyone else sits on benches. ** Subverted in the House of Lords, where while the Lords do sit on benches (admittedly really, really, posh benches), 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. *** There's also a Judges' Woolsack, another (much longer) wool-filled cushion right in front of and below it, where the Law Lords--Britain's highest judicial authority until they were moved to the new [[UsefulNotes/BritishCourts Supreme Court of the United Kingdom]] in late 2009--sat during the State Opening of Parliament (although any Lord may sit on it during normal session); the Justices of the Supreme Court continue to sit on the Judges' Woolsack during the State Opening (Supreme Court Justices are still formally Lords, but are barred from sitting or voting while they serve). Double Subverted in that there ''is'' a rather cool chair in the Lords Chamber--it's the monarch's throne, from which he/she gives the Speech from the Throne every State Opening of Parliament--and unlike the Judges' Woolsack, if you're not supposed to be sitting in it but sit in it anyway, you ''will'' get in trouble.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has the Espadas' chairs, all of which are inexplicably about 15 feet tall and shaped like a piece of modern art. Aizen's couch shares the same absurd size and shape. Both have achieved their own [[CargoShip fandoms.]] ** Aizen got another one in the form of the chair he was bound to in Muken. [[spoiler:When partially freed by Shunsui in the fight against Yhwach]], he did complain about the fact he was still bound to it, but also remarks on how nice about how nigh invincible it is since it just [[spoiler:survived a flood of his signature Hado 90: [[GravitySucks Kurohitsugi]]]].

When meeting with the form Espada, the chairs at his conference table are all inexplicably many feet taller than they should be and are shaped like works of modern art. His own 'throne' is a couch that so huge it very nearly dwarfs the dais it sits upon. Aizen looks tiny when sat on 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 he was bound to in Muken.

* Brianna Diggers in the comic ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' built the "Lay-Z-Boy [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom of Doom]], a high-tech recliner with [[GatlingGood gatling gun]] armrests. Unfortunately for her, she didn't pay attention to the placement of all the guns' parts, and ended up with a lap full of hot shell casings when she used it.

** Interestingly enough, Jim Starlin originally conceived Thanos as an {{Expy}} of the above-mentioned Metron. Editor Roy Thomas said he should base the character on {{Darkseid}} instead. Thanos hover thrones are possibly a nod to the originally intended reference.
