* [[http://wen-m.deviantart.com/art/Anima-Queen-Elisabetta-46260162 This]] in the cover of one ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'' sourcebook. Besides how much must weight that throne, one wonders how the Empress can move [[PimpedOutDress carrying so much gold]] (and how she manages to fold her arms.)

* 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.
