* Colt Anaconda from ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' is the coolest as well as one of the best firearms in the entire game. Not only does this piece pack the punch of a shotgun (at ''long range''!) but it's also deadly accurate like a sniper rifle and ''fast''. The only drawback is its six-shot cylinder. Oh, and its firing sound is just plain badass. You can also switch to alternate fire and "fan" a room pretty easily, as long as you don't mind stopping to reload every two seconds.

** ''3'' also has Takaya, leader of Strega, also carries one, stated by WordOfGod to be a [[HandCannon Smith & Wesson Model 500, the most powerful production revolver in the world]].

** And then there are countless weapon mods, which add [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede's]] gun, the original .223 pistol from Fallout 2, many real-world revolvers and even rarities like the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mateba_Autorevolver Mateba Model 6]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', you know you're ''screwed'' if friggin GrimReaper himself is [[GunsAkimbo dual wielding]] Colt Buntlines! [[SkippableBoss The sound of chains ringing through the hallways are always a good cue for you to run]], [[ThatOneBoss no matter what level you are.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Naoto Shirogane and Tohru Adachi use revolvers as their WeaponOfChoice. In both this game and ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'', Naoto can get a freaking [[HandCannon .44 Colt Anaconda]]. And that's only a mid-game weapon - the late-game revolvers are truly terrifying.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has Makoto Nijima, a straight-laced honor student who shoots from the hip like she's in a Western. She's also the daughter of a cop and loves Yakuza movies, so this probably influences her choice of gun.

Added DiffLines:

* The Mateba Autorevolver is one of the most sought after and highly performing handguns in the industry. It addresses a number of complaints about revolvers like the tougher trigger pulls on double actions and the recoil and spinning action. The Mateba fires from its bottom cylinder, greatly reducing upward pull endemic to handguns, especially revolvers. As an Autorevolver, it uses the gas from the round to turn the cylinder and recock the trigger, acting as somewhat of a halfway point between a revolver and a semiautomatic. However its still as reliable as a normal revolver and the only downside is that you only get six shots.

* Very much subverted in Manga/GunsmithCats. Two times revolvers are used they fail noticeably, and when the main character gets hold of one she is visibly disgusted with it (although she's justified because the revolver was a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_night_special "Saturday Night Special"]] she nabbed from a random crook--seriously insufficient firepower for the trouble she had at hand). Doesn't stop her from doing rapid five-pulls with one to scare the hell out of someone she's interrogating though.

* Very much subverted in Manga/GunsmithCats. Two times revolvers are used they fail noticeably, noticeably (because of things like lead buildup after rapid-firing causing the cylinder to gunk up--although Rally admits on that case that the fault was using ammo made for target shooting (with extra-powerful magnum loading and no rifling to fit the armor-piercing heads) and not regular bullets), and when the main character Rally gets hold of one she is visibly disgusted with it (although she's justified because the revolver was a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_night_special "Saturday Night Special"]] she nabbed from a random crook--seriously insufficient firepower for the trouble she had at hand).

* In the third episode of ''Series/Daredevil2015'', a hitman named John Healy apparently has a preference for revolvers over semi-automatics, as revolvers have no chance of jamming....as shown when the semi-automatic he bought from Turk Barrett for a hit jams up.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': In the third episode of ''Series/Daredevil2015'', a hitman named episode, John Healy apparently pulls a gun on a man that Wilson Fisk has hired him to kill. As he's about to pull the trigger, the show suddenly cuts back in time 36 hours earlier, when Healy is buying the gun from Turk Barrett:
-->'''Turk Barrett:''' ''[smells the pistol]'' Mmmm. Love that smell. Metal and oil. Fresh, never been fired. Take
a preference for revolvers over semi-automatics, as revolvers have no whiff. ''[Healy picks up the gun and holds it in a firing stance]''
-->'''John Healy:''' I'd like a good revolver better. No
chance of jamming....as shown when jamming up.
-->'''Turk Barrett:''' Man, look at this! ''[racks

* ''Film/GhostInTheShell2017''. When it's time to take on the BigBad, Aramaki wordlessly places on the table a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum encased in a leather holster, a [[GoodOldWays noticeable contrast to the high-tech autos wielded by his subordinates]]. And he can use it too, as he subsequently demonstrates against a hit team. When fighting a similar hit team Togusa uses a Chiappa Rhino 60DS, the updated equivalent of the Mateba autorevolver he carries in the anime.
