* Partially deconstructed in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero''. A wealthy young woman with a crush on Lifeline included in her barrage of gifts to him, a solid gold helicopter. While its reflective qualities made it superb protection from laser fire during a Cobra attack, it was too heavy to get off the ground.

* Taken to extremes in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros2'', in which a large part of the game revolves around amassing ludicrous amounts of coins. Golden versions of regular enemies such as Goombas, Koopas and Piranha Plants abound, and the new Golden Fire Flower power-up turns Mario himself to gold, enabling him to chuck golden fireballs that turn enemies and blocks into coins.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has the Lannister family, who coat everything with gold - platemail, horse armor, even swords. However it's specifically mentioned that this is only gilding (not solid gold armor, as Tyrion Lannister falsely claims at one point to impress someone) designed to boost the image of the Lannisters as the richest and most awesome House in the Seven Kingdoms.
** Solid gold armour would be pretty useless, as gold is one of the softer metals.

* The ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' [[AscendedFridgeHorror deconstructs]] this with the [[TheCaligula Emperor of the Tiste Edur]]. Every inch of his skin is [[GemEncrusted studded with gold coins]] which were [[BodyHorror burned into his flesh]], leaving what little skin remains visible horribly scarred. Additionally, the mass of gold is so heavy it has turned what used to be a LongHairedPrettyBoy into a hulking monster. And all that while the Tiste Edur [[WorthlessYellowRocks don't even care about gold]] and only use it in burial rituals to mock their [[ConspicuousConsumption wealth-worshipping]] neighbouring nation.
