* Jill Masterton in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' (the film) dies by having her body completely covered in golden paint (based on a false assumption that merely painting skin can smother people), in one of the most iconic scenes of the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise.

* ''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[[note]]which would of course be nearly useless[[/note]], 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.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' really, ''really'' love Gold, as seen in countless official art and studio paint jobs for their miniatures. The GodEmperor of Mankind for example has Terminator armour (considered the best armour type in the game for human characters) that is entirely golden. Though since 40k tends to have a love-hate relationship with reality and physics, whether the armour is actually solid gold or only gold-plated isn't clear, fan consensus is the latter though.

* Golden armor shows up as items in some ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' has golden swords, but like you'd expect ([[TheCoconutEffect or perhaps not]], given how nearly all other [=RPGs=] treat gold) these are useless as weapons. They [[VendorTrash sell for a neat price]] though. They're found in [[MeaningfulName Goldor's]] mansion, which happens to be made entirely of gold.

* There are gilded sets of armour in ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}''. This is not as extreme an example as sets of armour made out solid gold, though - decorating armour with gold was not common practice, but there ''is'' historical precedent for it.
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'': Sure, you can make a sword out of that gold you just mined. It'll be roughly as effective as one made of ''wood'' and break about as quickly. On the other hand, using [[BoringButPractical iron]]...
