* Cater of ''FinalFantasyType0'' spins her [[RayGun Magicite Pistol]] between shots of her [[FireIceLightning Elementillery]] attack. It seems to be a way to stop the weapon from overheating, as she only does it between Flame and Voltaic shots.

* Despite being perfectly able to wield two revolvers with the precision and effectiveness as [[{{Equilibrium}} John Preston]], MaxPayne does not twirl his weapons.
* The Kusagari Kid from the Wii exclusive ''RedSteel2'' twirls his revolver (his first and main firearm) when drawing and holstering it. Considering he's a wide-brimmed hat, duster coat wearing samurai/outlaw/cowboy, this is hardly surprising.
