* For the ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' series, typically the standard hand-sized hole-puncher is the "Wes-44", which is a Smith & Wesson Model 629 Classic and often seen in the hands of Victor Sullivan (possibly as a ShoutOut to ''Film/DirtyHarry'', although Harry's WeaponOfChoice is the non-stainless S&W Model 29). ''Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception'' also adds the Tau Sniper (the Taurus Raging Bull as a SniperPistol) and Mag 5 (Dan Wesson PPC) as additional {{Hand Cannon}}s while ''Uncharted 4: A Thief's End'' drops all of these for the "Barok .44", which is a Mateba 6 Unica Autorevolver (and a {{Rare Gun|s}} at that).

* Kiritsugu Emiya from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' favours a Thompson Contender chambered for rifle cartridges as his main weapon. He furthermore uses [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells custom-made bullets (containing his own ground-up bones)]] that, if they come into contact with an expression of magic (typically a barrier), will both disrupt it and extremely damage the magical source, typically the caster's nerves. This is the main reason he chose such a high-caliber pistol for his AntiMagic work; by using a caliber too powerful for anything short of an armored vehicle to block, he will put the enemy magus in a catch-22 situation, forcing them to either take the bullet's extreme physical power or to create a powerful enough barrier to block the bullet, at which point their nerves will be destroyed by the bullet's enchantment.

** Then in ''Gungrave Overdose'' there's Fangoram who wields the massive "Center Head" which is bigger than both of them and fires what can only be described as small artillery rounds, and is strong enough to [[spoiler: critically injure Grave to the point where his Regeneration powers can't close his wounds properly, leaving Grave in a near-comatose state for a while...until he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome snaps out of it by sheer force of will]]]].

* ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'''s reward for completing its hardest difficulty is a weapon known as the hand cannon, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which is in actuality your character using a]] {{fingergun}} [[CrowningMomentOfFunny inside of a foam finger and going "bang, bang" or "pew, pew" when you "fire."]] This causes the enemies to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome explode instantly.]] It also qualifies as a BraggingRightsReward.

* The ''VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga'' features badass mercenary (and later badass Jedi battlemaster) Kyle Katarn. He's most known for being one of a very small number of Jedi who is a firm believer of SwordAndGun combat. His weapon of choice is the [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bryar_pistol Bryar blaster pistol]], which started life a full blown ''blaster rifle'' before his dad cut it down to look less old-fashioned. Just how huge is this thing? [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/eff/images/b/bb/Bryar_pistol.png Here]] is an image of Kyle holding the Bryar pistol, suggesting it's twice the size of his arm. Even this [[http://media.moddb.com/images/groups/1/10/9791/Kyle_Katarn_Art.jpg official art]] for the ''Dark Forces'' {{Novelization}} depicts a weapon that would probably be very heavy to carry for some time. Interestingly, while its single shots are of middling damage, the Bryar has a ChargeAttack that can [[BlownAcrossTheRoom send a stormtrooper flying in one charged shot]].
