* Also played straight in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}''. You start out with Wood, then move up through Copper, Iron, Silver, and Gold to Demonite, [[MeteoricIron Meteorite]], Hellstone, Cobalt, [[{{Mithril}} Mythril]], Adamantite, and finally, Hallowed[[note]]Note that there's no ore, only bars.[[/note]]. {{Lampshaded}} by the goblin tinkerer, who says "YES, gold is stronger than iron. What are they teaching these humans nowadays?"
** 1.2 adds Tin, Lead, Tungsten, Platinum, Crimstone as random alternative to the first five ores, Palladium, {{Orichalcum}} and Titanium as alternative to hardmode ores, as well as adding Chlorophyte ore, which can be used to make either Chlorophyte or Shroomite.

*** Well, it's got 'C6' in it (the silver version has Ag47). Make of that what you will.

*** Elementium has been used here and there since the original game; making a couple of incredibly powerful weapons in WoW Classic and then used for flavor later on so signify luxury status. There are expensive rings with no stats made of elementium, and the game's custom-crafted motorcycles have elementium-plated ''exhaust pipes.''

* ''VideoGame/WarcratIII'''s upgrades for the Alliance uses iron, steel and mythril (what the swords are made of prior to iron is not addressed). The Horde uses steel, thorium and arcanite instead.

** ''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).

** ''Diablo 2'' * ''VideoGame/DiabloII'' adds even more (and upon the original game, but also changes the meaning of some of them, the 'blue' them. The "blue" series (Lapis, Sapphire etc) become etc.) becomes [[AnIcePerson cold]] resistance, as that [[ElementalPowers element]] was added for ''Diablo 2''; as generic "magic" resistance was removed, Amber becomes II'', while Lightning resistance, instead got the "yellow" series (Topaz, Amber, etc.), and "magic", which previously had yellow colours, was removed as its own element. Finally, Poison was added as an element, which got greens such as Jade and Emerald become Poison resistance ([[UniversalPoison poison as an elemental damage type]] is also a ''Diablo 2'' addition).Emerald.



** Gold is mostly used on other items rather than crafting, still making it a case of "reality ensues".

[[AsYouKnow As we all know]], Iron is stronger than Bronze is stronger than Copper, so therefore all weapons and armor made of Iron must be better! Well, not necessarily. In RealLife, other factors come into it, including design (a well-made bronze tool is superior to a low-end iron tool), the maker's skill, available forging techniques (bronze is actually stronger than wrought iron, and pure iron is more or less useless), facilities, time, the quality of the raw material, and alloy composition. Some metals are likewise better suited to cutting, resisting damage, or being light enough to carry. They will frequently be used by the UltimateBlacksmith.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunTheLostAge'' features crafting (well, forged) materials acquired through chests or battles. Each can be turned into one of half-a-dozen weapons or armor, leading to a lot of SaveScumming, and given that they're found in a very open-ended map, it is entirely possible to find one material long after it's become obsolete.

* ''Wood'' - Usually the weakest type of weapons material you'll find, and not very good armor, either. Of course, certain weapons like bows or [[SimpleStaff staves]] have no problem with this. That being said, if someone can kick ass with 'just' [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter a wooden sword]], he's grade-A BadAss material. This is historically the most common material for shields.

**** Interestingly, in RealLife, Gold-Titanium alloy is stronger then than Titanium by itself.

* ''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.
