** ''VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided'': Dvali mobster Otar Botkoveli has his own custom silver-plated revolver with an ornately carved rosewood grip, which has also been fitted with a scope and has been chambered exclusively for Armor Piercing bullets. It's considerably more tasteful than Burke's revolver, and considerably more useful too.

You can swipe it from his office safe long before you have to face him, in which case "poor" Burke will have to make due with a bog-standard machine pistol for his boss fight.

* This trope becomes a plot point for a chapter in LoneWolfAndCub. One character, a gunsmith, finds that the trope is in full effect among his peers, who all make high quality matchlock rifles with excessive decoration, and that they forget that guns are weapons of war and death and need to be developed to be more efficient. [[DefectorFromDecadence His response to this?]] A "multiple-fire rifle" - a multiple-barreled volley gun whose [[CurbStompBattle demonstration]] shames and terrifies the other gunmakers into trying to make better weapons.
