* ''Film/{{Arizona Dream}}'': Axel has entered Grace's room with a gun, with the apparent intention to shoot her in the head. Not only does Grace dare him to go through with it and mock him for losing his nerve, but she turns it around on him by challenging him to a game, after setting up the bullet in the chamber. And not only does he go through with it, but they both survive and then end up kissing and rolling on the floor. Weirdest seduction ever.

* The Gazette's second album "NIL" has an opening track called "The End," in which the five members can be heard passing a gun around while muttering in English and Japanese. The barrel is spun and a click is heard for each member, and at the end of the song the guitar feedback is cut short with the sound of a shot.

* In ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'', two men are shown playing Russian Roulette when the board rotates in "Wordwang." A gunshot sounds just as they disappear from view.

* In an episode of Friday The 13th the Series the killer of the week was using the cursed item to win playing Russian Roulette in high-stakes illegal gambling (it created a snake that slowly traveled up the sacrificial victim until killing them), eventually targeting a loved one for his last bout. Unfortunately for him they stop the snake just as he's getting ready to confidently pull the trigger on a revolver now fully loaded (each round they added another bullet) providing some karmic justice.

*** A game using this mechanism was released in 1975 as a marketing tie-in for a [[https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/7563/jaws movie about fishing]]. Age 5 and up - seriously. The Crocodile Dentist version was way less creepy.

* One {{Jerkass}} [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/sydney-news/court-hears-of-womans-russian-roulette-ordeal/story-e6freuzi-1225979015190 forced his wife into this]], except [[MoralEventHorizon when it was his turn, he merely shot in the air]]. Luck was on the woman's side, though, as she survived three misses and later escaped.

** The American version is called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crocodile_Dentist Crocodile Dentist]], in which children take turns extracting teeth from a crocodile until they hit the one sore tooth that will cause the croc to get fed up and chomp on your fingers. Teaching children that life is cruel and arbitrary since 1993! (Unless you cheat and test which tooth gives the most resistance, of course.)

** Joey has the [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Time_Wizard Time Wizard]], which had a "Time Roulette" effect. If it lands on one of the two time machine symbols, it ages everything on the field by 1000 years. [[note]] This can also be a test of luck, since the desired effect is to leave the opponent's monsters old and withered while Joey's Baby Dragon ages into the mighty Thousands Dragon, but some others also get a positive effect from 1000 years' time, such as Yugi's Dark Magician becoming the Dark Sage.[[/note]] If lands on one of the four skull symbols, it detonates Joey's side of the field, which can take a lot out of his Life Points.

* ''LiarGame'' has a less-fatal variant with "24-Shot Russian Roulette", where the gun is loaded with six caps (out of 24) and if you shoot yourself, you lose several million yen. This being ''Liar Game'', the heroes figure out how to fix it in their favour.
