* ''SenZar'' swore by this, to the point that it managed to completely break the game. This is one of the many reasons why it's considered one of the worst tabletop roleplaying games ever devised.

* In ''Literature/HeroesOfOlympus'', the Romans are armed with weapons of "Imperial gold", a heavily enchanted form of regular gold which is apparently as light and strong as steel, besides being death to supernatural enemies.

* ''[[PublicDomainArtifact Legendary equipment]]'' - You know you're approaching the ultimate equipment when it starts [[NamedWeapons taking names]] [[StockWeaponNames from mythology]]. What else is cooler than DualWielding King Arthur's Excalibur, the Grecian Aegis, or Thor's [[DropTheHammer Mjolnir?]] The InfinityPlusOneSword is often to be found here.

** ''[[FantasyMetals Fantastic Metals]]'' - At a certain point on the scale, fantastic materials start getting thrown into the mix, which have properties which border on (or are) magical. Common examples include {{Mithril}}, {{Orichalcum}}, Adamantium, Neutronium, {{Unobtainium}}, or any old {{Phlebotinum}}.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLastStory.'' You can find copper, silver, gold, and even platinum swords... which are explicitly stated to be purely decorative items which, not shockingly, are terrible as actual equipment. They're intended to be used as VendorTrash.

** In [[Literature/TheMistbornAdventures a sequel series]], aluminum weapons are highly valued because aluminum and a few of its alloys are the only metals that steel and iron don't affect.

* The crafting system of ''VideoGame/{{Ryzom}}'' is surprisingly nuanced as far as this trope goes, even though it replaces "metal and gemstones" with "various assorted animal and tree parts". Depending on what materials you use (for example, eyes, plant buds, and amber), the quality of that material (between 1 and 250), and its grade (Basic, Fine, Choice, Excellent, or Superior) the stats of the item you craft will be affected in various ways, like how fast you can cast a spell or if your armor will be better-suited for protecting you against smashing damage rather than piercing.

* In ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'', when Yahtzee played ''{{Minecraft}}'', he recounts assuming this trope was in effect and forging himself a suit of gold armor and weapons, only to discover that gold doesn't make very good armor or weapons.

** Diablo 2 adds even more (and changes the meaning of some of them, the 'blue' series (Lapis, Sapphire etc) become [[AnIcePerson cold]] resistance, as that [[ElementalPowers element]] was added for Diablo 2; as generic "magic" resistance was removed, Amber becomes Lightning resistance, and Jade and Emerald become Poison resistance ([[UniversalPoison poison as an elemental damage type]] is also a Diablo 2 addition). * Played straight in VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}, where you can make tools out of Wood, Stone, Iron, Gold, or Diamond and armor out of Leather, Iron, Gold, or Diamond; except that [[RealityEnsues Gold is soft and lasts no better than Wood]]. However, gold tools are faster even than diamond, though still rarely used due to gold's other uses and the low durability.
