* Mentioned early in ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Pandora Tomorrow'', when Sam acquires an aerosol canister of what turns out to be a deadly virus and Lambert tells him they need to bring it to a specialist who can find out what's inside. Sam notes he could just open the canister there and see for himself, and Lambert chastises him by claiming he could also [[TooDumbToLive play Russian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol]].

* Revolver Ocelot plays Russian Roulette with three guns juggled simultaneously a few times in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3''.''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. A variation with only two guns, and someone else (namely, Naked Snake) holding the second one, shows up in the final gameplay section before the ending. [[spoiler:That time it turns out the loaded round is a blank.]]



** It has a rather weird beginning though. Keane promises if Garcian wins, Keane will tell him his secret to picking up any woman in the world. If he loses, Garcian has to kill the President. Think about that for a minute. Hint: [[spoiler:Keane doesn't keep his end of the bargain.]]
*** [[spoiler:Keep in mind that in [=Killer7=], dead people seem to have a habit of not staying dead. And Keane does say the secret. It's just that....Well.....]]

** Also, Ocelot's Russian Roulette shows up in ''TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' when the characters revisit his memories of the scene from the game. Later, he demonstrates the technique to Psycho Mantis, who is frustrated at not being able to figure out which chamber has the bullet -- understandably so, because [[spoiler:The Boss]] chose correctly during the events of [=MGS3=].

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' features a game of Russian Roulette of the 1 round, 5 empty chambers variant between the player character and his friend Sgt. Woods. Forced to play at gunpoint by their Vietcong captors (in an almost shot by shot recreation of the aforementioned scene in ''Film/TheDeerHunter''), Woods successfully manages to survive one round (complete with a [[AtomicFBomb loud exclamation of "FUCK!"]] before pulling the trigger), before passing the gun to you while telling you "one chance". Your character, [[{{Badass}} Mason]], takes the gun, raises it, and promptly [[spoiler:[[TakeAThirdOption shoots the guard forcing them to play, takes his pistol, and shoots the other guards,]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome all in one swift move]]]].

* ''VideoGame/Killer7'' has a climactic game of Russian Roulette between school principal Benjamin Keane and {{Badass}} assassin Garcian Smith. It doubles as Garcian's SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, as well: [[spoiler: the gun is passed back and forth between Keane and Garcian, Keane growing constantly more frantic and Garcian remaining calm as ever, until 5 chambers have come up empty; it's the 6th chamber, and Garcian's turn. As Keane starts laughing, Garcian calmly puts the gun to his head, and pulls the trigger... and nothing happens.]]

* ''Film/TheProfessional''. LittleMissBadass Mathilda does this to show ProfessionalKiller Léon she's ready to become a killer. Léon knocks her hand away at the last second, which is just as well because the revolver goes off.
