Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Views are mixed when it comes to guns. However, there is one gun that we can all agree is cool: the revolver.
Let's face it, revolvers are cool. In fiction, revolvers are often shown to be better than any other handgun. In video games, they may be the most accurate, most powerful, and rarest of all handguns. If a character is The Gunslinger, chances are it's a revolver he'll be slingin'.
In Westerns, cowboys and outlaws are seen with revolvers. But this is because revolvers were the only repeating handguns at that time in history, not because of any cool factor. That doesn't stop it from being cool, though. One could argue this is where revolvers first picked up their mystique, though Dirty Harry is probably responsible for popularising Magnum-loaded revolvers as the Hand Cannon of choice; this has faded a little in recent years, with the first choice for movie hero personal artillery more likely to be a .50AE Desert Eagle, much to the annoyance of gun enthusiasts. An enduring legacy of Dirty Harry is that it's often assumed that every powerful revolver is a Magnum.note "Magnum" does not mean "really powerful;" it refers to a longer (and yes, inherently more powerful) cartridge version of an existing caliber. The .454 Casull, for example, was the most powerful revolver available to civilians for many years, yet doesn't even have "Magnum" in its name (despite still technically being one to the .45 Long Colt and .45 S&W calibers). An easy demonstration is that while the revolver is the Hand Cannon to a regular semi-auto pistol in most media productions, one shouldn't expect to see a semi-auto pistol as the Hand Cannon to a regular revolver.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })For a more detailed look at the advantages and disadvantages, see the analysis page.
For a competing product, see the shotgun (particularly the Sawed-Off Shotgun) or the katana. Tends to be a Punch-Packing Pistol or a Sniper Pistol when not a Hand Cannon outright. Compare and/or contrast with Revolvers Are for Amateurs, where they're just better for someone inexperienced.

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi: The Revolver reloads faster then the Flintlock or Musket and can shoot 5 times before reloading. However, each shot only does a third of the damage, so this is kind of subverted. Not that it makes it any less useful.

Dirty Harry famously uses a gigantic Smith & Wesson Model 29, which chambers .44 magnum bullets. The gun is extremely powerful, and the long barrel plus adjustable sights make it basically a pocket-rifle. Around the time the movie was filmed, some police actually did carry such large revolvers, but they eventually proved excessively powerful. In Magnum Force, the "rookies" carry revolvers which stand out (.357 Magnum loads), and Dirty Harry explains some technical details of his gun such as the specific load he uses (probably an effort of the writers to justify his use of a powerful handgun like a water pistol).

Battlefield
In Battlefield 2142 the strongest handgun is the revolver, balanced out by the fact it has less ammunition and truly awesome muzzle climb.
Not to mention it had easily the best reload animation in the game, along with a loud boom that was just a terrifying to hear if you were on the PAC as hearing the Shuko Light Machinegun was to an EU player.
The EU revolver also looks to have ammo of a pretty impressive calibre when compared to the PAC pistol. And this revolver has eight shots compared to the typical six.
Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield 4 have the MP-412 revolver that kills in 3 bullets, 4 at maximum range, compared to the other pistols that kill in 4 at the closest range at best. It has quite the kick and a small magazine of 6, however.

Wild ARMs 5. Boy howdy. Not only does Rebecca use a fairly normal revolver ARM based on a cap-and-ball Colt, but...Dean's ARMs, despite shooting like a semi-auto complete with flying brass, are shaped so as to overlap this trope with Gatling Good, and Avril's sword ARM has a revolveresque wheel of power cartridges.
Subverted in Wild Arms 3, where Virginia's revolvers are...quite weak in comparison. To mock gunplay tropes further, try guessing what's weaker than Virginia's revolvers? Why, it's Gallows' Sawed-Off Shotgun of course! To be fair, Virginia is an item-oriented fighter with speed as her forte, and Gallows is a full on nuking black mage.
Wild Arms 4, one boss wields a pair of revolvers that may as well be rocket launchers for the amount of damage they can do, as well as the stunts the character wielding them pulls off in his final cutscene.

Mobile Police Patlabor - the AV-98 Ingrams use "Revolver Cannons," which are actually giant versions of standard police revolvers. Apparently the rounds are so expensive that speedloaders aren't issued, the operators instead being required to get out of their Labor and load the gun by hand.

Thoroughly averted in Door Kickers. The revolvers available offer no real advantages over the .45 pistols, but have multiple weaknesses such as a lower fire rate and a smaller ammo capacity. The weakest enemy in the game also uses a .38 revolver that is ineffective in harming your officers.

In The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Tuco enters a general store and is unimpressed by the storekeep's selection of revolvers. He breaks the guns down and assembles a new gun from the parts that meet his high expectations. In reality, this would have been fairly improbable. Gun parts at the time were rarely interchangeable even between guns of the same model.

Subverted in an episode of Bones when during a shootout between Booth (wielding Bones' S&W Model 500) and the episode's Monster Clown (wielding a Sawed-Off Shotgun), the clown criticizes Booth's 5-shot capacity and taunts him by pointing out he only has One Bullet Left. Double Subverted when the clown takes cover behind a steel door and Booth merely blasts right through it.
There's also Bones herself, who at one point carried said very very large revolver, and actually used it at the climax of the above episode.
That's the same episode, Bones had gone with the "bigger is better" idea after being attacked in a previous episode. Unfortunately, she can barely lift the gun, let alone fire it, so Booth has to take the piece.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has three different types of revolver, all of which fit in the secondary slot:
The WU S333 (which also has short and long-barreled variants), sporting good damage per shot and good accuracy,
The Uragan-5, a revolver shotgun that has slug and non-lethal variants,
And the Tornado-6, Ocelot's Weapon of Choice in the game. It sports greater damage-per-shot than the WU S333 and can even take advantage of ricochets to hit enemies beind obstacles, but cannot be modified in any way. If the player chooses to play as Ocelot in FOBs, Ocelot will dual wield them.

In the manga, the Major questions why he uses a revolver, when he should be afraid of it jamming, even if he carries a semi-automatic as backup. On the Major's request, he uses the semi-automatic throughout the manga. For some added irony, a semi-automatic of the same model jams in a later issue... In addition, Togusa is presented as someone with an odd gun choice, using an AS-11 shotgun in addition to his two handguns.

Two of the starting characters in Enter the Gungeon (the Convict and the Hunter), possess revolvers as their default, infinite-ammo firearms. A lot of other handguns are also revolvers, and many are really cool. Examples include the Frost Giant (a large, powerful revolver, which fires as fast as the player pulls the trigger, and every shot from which also discharges a cone of ice from the barrel that freezes enemies up close), and the Devolver, which often converts the enemies it doesn't kill outright into the weak Arrowkin.
Smiley's Revolver and Shades' Revolver are the weapons wielded by a pair of potential Floor 1 bosses (though, you can find either of them on that very floor before fighting them, somehow, or way after that fight). They are decent enough for early-to-midgame, but are always useful to keep around thanks to their passive bonuses: Smiley's Revolver reduces the shop prices, while Shades' Revolver substantially decreases active items' recharge time, which can be extremely important when those items are something like Stuffed Star (temporary invulnerability) or Big Boy (calls down a straight-up nuclear missile.)
One of the most powerful guns in the entire game, The Finished Gun, is a revolver that quickly fires high damage bullets, and the final shot of each magazine is a larger bullet that deals more damage and reflects enemy bullets.
Even the floors are called "chambers" in a direct reference to the chambers in the revolver's cylinder, and the floor teleport tiles look exactly like a revolver's cylinder.

Dark Watch has the Redeemer, a heavily modified revolver with a curved blade fitted to the grip and a 24 round, helical magazine that slots in underneath the barrel and cylinder, and reloads extremely quickly. The same goes for the Warmongers, smaller revolvers that are always wielded as a pair.

Russian anime-inspired game X-Blades has protagonist Ayumi using a pair of...things. Each one is a double-barrelled, double-drummed revolver with each emerging on the side of a long blade. Essentially, a pistol grip with a sword in the middle and two guns melded on the side. And she has two of them, one for each hand. And just for extra cool factor, her "gun-blades" can be imbued with fire, lightning or even LIGHT, casing them to both hit and shoot significantly harder. Skills are available to make her shoot significantly faster or cause her bullets to ricochet off enemies, and her light and dark modes can further double her rate of fire AND her speed of melee attacks. The English variant X-Blades also adds gun-blade upgrades into wider blades and bigger guns. Who cares about realism or practicality?

Crushing difficulty does downgrade the revolver: one shot to the chest or head still kills, but any other body part will require two shots. The Desert-5, however, remains the most powerful gun. In all difficulties, the revolver also has highly limited ammo compared to other handguns.

Subverted in Gunsmith Cats. Two times revolvers are used they fail 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 Rally gets hold of one she is visibly disgusted with it (although she's justified because the revolver was a "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.

Rick O'Connell, as well as the Americans from The Mummy loved to use revolvers. O'Connell was shown to be an aficionado of many types of firearms, however. Early in the movie O'Connell is using semi-automatic pistols vs the horsemen, in the desert. Inappropriate weapons for the conditions, being prone to jamming from dust and dirt. In the commentary on the DVD Brendan Fraser, who played O'Connell, confirmed that the weapons kept jamming due to the dusty conditions. In the third movie, there's one scene where Rick and his son, Alex, are comparing their handguns (a Colt Peacemaker revolver and a Walther P38 pistol respectively). Rick boasts of the superior reliability and bigger size of the revolver, but Alex claims that size doesn't matter.

The starting magnums in Metal Wolf Chaos are cool, but they soon get outclassed by the more advanced semiautomatic handguns. The late-game magnums, however, are some of the most powerful weapons available.

In In Bruges, Colin Farrell's Ray blinds a man with a blank-loaded revolver then loads it with live rounds nearly 3 minutes later. Yeah, versatility! Revolvers don't need any modifications to fire blanks. However, he does lament carrying it, referring to it as "a bloody girl's gun" when compared with the silenced automatic of Brendan Gleeson's Ken.

In Lyrical Nanoha, Devices can get "cartridge systems" that allow them to fire powerful bursts of magic. The titular character's staff loads cartridges from assault rifle-style magazines, and the Wolkenritter's Devices have shotgun-style brute-force mechanisms... but guess what Fate, the former Dark Magical Girl who gets the really cool gear, gets for hers? Yup, six-shot revolver cylinder.
The Revolver Knuckles of Subaru and Ginga's devices (Mach Caliber and Blitz Caliber respectively) load cartridges via a revolver cylinder, hence the name.

The Dolt 45 and Snubnose revolvers in Death Road to Canada are more powerful than the average pistol, at the expense of firing slower and holding less ammo. They're better as early-game weapons where saving ammo is more crucial and where the Shooting stat is a bit underdeveloped. In the endgame, it's better to switch to pistols with higher reserves, assuming one's shooting stat has improved.

Toned down in Borderlands 2 though. Revolver shotguns have been replaced with break action, drum magazine, and box magazine-fed shotguns, revolver rocket launchers are gone, but Torgue, Maliwan, and Jakobs continue the trend. Torgue's line of explosives-only weaponry extends to revolvers, and it is even possible to get a 14-round explosive Torgue revolver that shoots two bullets at once; all of Maliwan's pistols, which are elemental, are also revolver-like, and Jakobs still continues their Western line of revolving rifles and heavy revolvers, as their weapons retain their reliability and high damage from the first game with the new attribute of firing as fast as you can click.

Half-Life and Half-Life 2: Gordon Freeman gets two handguns in each game. His starter gun is a 9mm handgun (respectively a Glock 17 or a H&K USP Match), and later he will find a .357 Colt Python. On a whole, it's downplayed for balance purposes. The revolver is incredibly powerful and accurate, essentially a Sniper Pistol; humanoid enemies will always go down in one shot until very late in the game. On the downside, it has ridiculously low ammo (36 and 24 bullets total in the first and second games, compared to 168 for the 9mm guns), very scarce supplies of ammo for it, and a very low fire rate thanks to high recoil. Finally, the reload speed is sluggish. Thus the revolver excels at picking off targets at medium range, but in close quarters with multiple foes it's a better idea to use the lighter handgun to snap off several quick headshots. The fact that ammo is so restricted that you'll have an overbearing urge to save it for emergencies make this gun Too Awesome to Use.
And it can make Breen do a backflip (at about 1:30).
In the Valve-approved Fan Remake of the original Half Life, Black Mesa, the Colt Python has a slightly longer reload speed, and a halved reserve ammo capacity, but this is more than offset by its ammo becoming far more frequent.

In Just Cause 2, the revolver is one of the various one-handed guns available in the game and is all-round the most powerful (the Sawn-Off Shotgun can deliver a bigger punch, but this requires that all its pellets hit the target, only achievable at point blank range). It's capable of one-shotting just about any non-Elite Mook and can be upgraded to pack 12 rounds in its six-shot cylinder somehow. A fully upgraded revolver allows Rico to casually wipe out entire Panauan military patrols with one magazine. Its biggest limitations are a low fire rate and a relatively small ammo pool, but seeing as how enemies regularly carry and therefore drop their own revolvers for ammo this is hardly as pressing an issue as, say, a shortage of Sniper Rifle ammunition.

And then there are countless weapon mods, which add Vash the Stampede's gun, the original .223 pistol from Fallout 2, many real-world revolvers and even rarities like the Mateba Model 6.

In The Dresden Files, wizards aren't allowed to kill with magic on pain of beheading, so Harry sometimes carries a gun — and because he's a Walking Techbane (against anything with a tech higher than the 1950s, mechanicalnote Mechanical does have a better chance of working if its more advanced, just it isn't perfect. or electronic), he uses a revolver in preference to a semi-automatic specifically because it's less likely to jam or misfire. He also mentions on occasion that he specifically picked the "Dirty Harry" type. He originally carried a Colt Detective Special, ie that snub-nosed pocket pistol that plainclothes cops are invariably seen with in Hollywood movies made before about 1995, but upgraded to an unidentified "medium-barrelled .357" after a run-in with some loup-garou. After running with the .357 for a while, Harry loses it during a fairy battle (seeing a pattern?) and upgrades again to a .44 magnum. Still later, he borrows a Smith & Wesson Model 500 from Karrin Murphy.
Lieutenant Murphy often berates Harry for his choice of gun, noting that her SIG semi-automatic carries 20 rounds to Harry's 6, and Harry has no speed-loaders, only loose rounds in his pocket. When he remarks that he uses a revolver because of the Walking Techbane issue, she suggests that he get an older semi-automatic, like her own M1911. Harry goes on to note that he likes his revolver just fine; it makes him feel like Indiana Jones.
Every other character in the books subverts this, as Harry is the only person with a revolver. Marcone uses an Assault Rifle and a Shotgun, Hendrix uses an assault rifle the size of a motorcycle, Murphy has her semi-autos and a P90, Sanya has his Kalashnikov, Thomas uses shotguns and a Desert Eagle, and Kincaid uses whatever he feels is the best gun for the job. note Although he notably packs one set of "big-ass revolvers" to go up against Mavra in "Blood Rites" Of course, Harry only carries a firearm as a backup and does most of his combat with magic.

In Yu-Gi-Oh!, "Bandit" Keith Howard's flagship monster is the Barrel Dragon◊, a giant mechanical dragon made from three enormous revolvers. Revolvers that are loaded with three bullets each, and play Russian Roulette pointed at the enemy monsters. What's not cool about that monster? Other than the fact that the head revolver is really goofy? That all said, when Keith holds a gun to Pegasus' head, it appears to be a Glock.
This gets confusing as there is a monster named Revolver Dragon in the English version, who has a revolver for a head and has an ability similar to Barrel Dragon. The difference being that Revolver Dragon is basically a Nerfed Barrel Dragon. Note, however, that the original◊ had much more realistic revolvers.

In Rogue One, Orson Krennic carries the closet thing Star Wars has to a revolver, a high-powered blaster pistol with six shots. However, it turns out to be a defiance of the trope. All he really manages to do with it is pin down Jyn for a while, and it doesn't do anything standard blasters can't also do. As with everything else in Krennic's repertoire, it's used thanks to Rule of Cool.

Jack Harkness of Torchwood prefers an antique Webley revolver, despite everyone else's penchant for modern handguns. Somewhat justified in that he probably got it when they were the best personal guns around, although that doesn't explain why he hasn't updated since.

The Chrono Ranger of Sentinels of the Multiverse, being a sheriff from the wild west who slipped through time to the distant future, carries his trusty six-gun. Though he also uses a variety of futuristic weapons given to him by a futuristic AI, his revolver is his most reliable weapon, as nearly every card he has lets him do damage with it as a bonus to whatever other action it does.

In Time Scout, given that most gates lead to times before automatic and semiautomatic weapons, this just plain sense. Why carry anything but a revolver when nothing but revolvers exist?

Clue: Colonel Mustard in the Conservatory with the Revolver!
Causing great confusion because while the cards (and the game rules) clearly said 'revolver', in most sets the actual playing piece was very clearly a semiautomatic pistol. Some had what looked more like a pepper-box, aka a pepper-box revolver, in which the whole multi-barrel assembly rotates.

Mukuru, vicious pirate from Samurai Champloo, uses a single-action revolver. However, although he is certainly an "accomplished" pirate and killer, all the killing we see him do is not so much Improbable Aiming Skills as it is him simply plugging samurai who only have swords.

Played with on Blue Bloods. Frank Reagan still uses a .38 Special revolver despite his father Henry telling him he'd have more firepower with a department-issue Glock semiautomatic. Frank's reasoning is simple:
Which gets even more heartwarming when we learn that said .38 belonged to Henry's father as well. Notably, Henry is once seen not to follow his own advice; he carries a .357 Magnum.
In "Re-Do" Frank proves pretty conclusively that he doesn't need a Glock. That ancient .38 Special has all the firepower he needs.

Several Resident Evil games, mostly by virtue of the fact that they are nearly always the coveted Magnum, shooting a much more powerful caliber than the default pistol (it varies from game to game, but the default pistol is often a 9mm Beretta). The Colt Python magnum is more or less Barry Burton's signature weapon.
Resident Evil offers you a .357 Colt Python, the most powerful gun in the game. In the 2002 remake, it's now a custom tailored Python that uses the name "Silver Serpent".
Resident Evil 2 has the Colt Single Action Army, which isn't any more powerful than the normal handgun, and only holds six rounds. But it can fire those six rounds faster than anything short of the submachine gun, meaning it can take down individual zombies very quickly, but is useless for anything bigger. In the Remake, Claire's starting handgun is a simple 9mm revolver — when upgraded with the optional parts and using the high-power rounds, it becomes comparable to Leon's magnum.
Resident Evil 3 gives Jill the .44 629 S&W, a more modern version of Dirty Harry's killing gun.
Resident Evil 4 gives you a choice of a few Magnums, but the potentially most powerful one you can get during the game is, of course, the revolver. Coolness is balanced out by the shortage of ammo for it, however; when you get the first one - either by buying it or getting it for free at a certain point of the game - the ammo is amazingly hard to come by, making it not very usable.
Without a doubt the most powerful magnum in the game is the Handcannon, which you can get Infinite Ammo for. You get it for free (if you can get five stars, with every character, on all four Mercenaries levels), but upgrades are hugely expensive...and if you try to sell it, its monetary value drops to 0.
Resident Evil 5 has two revolvers, both with barrel lengths approaching the size of the revolver in the picture for Hand Cannon. Both do the more damage than any other weapons per hit in the game.
Barry "My gun is my partner and my bullets are my backup" Burton wields a Colt Anaconda. The longest model of that gun is 13 inches(!) which judging by the fact that it is bigger than his head in most cutscenes is probably the model he owns.

The Judge in PAYDAY 2, a revolver that fires shotgun shells, somehow deals more damage than full-sized shotguns despite using smaller shells. The Bronco also does more base damage than most of the other pistols. The Matever and Peacemaker revolvers are also pocket snipers in a pinch, though both suffer from strong recoil and long reload times, respectively.

Fallout: New Vegas plays with this trope. Of the starter pistols, the .357 Magnum has better damage and accuracy than the 9mm and 10mm automatics, but fires slower, while the .45 Auto outperforms it but requires completion of the Honest Hearts DLC to obtain. Endgame pistols generally come in two categories: First, the smaller, quicker gun that relies on critical hits, of which there are two revolvers (That Gun, Lucky) and two automatics (A Light Shining in Darkness, Li'l Devil). The automatics fire faster with higher base damage, while the revolvers are more accurate (especially with Hand Loader ammo) with a higher critical hit rate. The second category is the larger, slower Hand Cannon—all of these (the .44 Magnum and Mysterious Magnum, the Hunting Revolver and Ranger Sequoia) are revolvers.

Played with in Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green, where there are no pistols, and so a revolver can only be compared with a hunting rifle. Said rifle deals more raw damage...but only the revolver is able to dismember limbs and score outright instant kills with headshots, so if you trust your aim, it is a better option against everything but the Elite Zombie type that's immune to dismemberment.

In the original Alone in the Dark, the revolver can be found inside a shoe box that was buried under a pile of coal. Some players prefer this revolver over the rifle, since it has less of a recoil, and its cartridges are waterproof.
In the fourth game, The New Nightmare, the revolver is the starting weapon of both Edward Carnby and Aline Cedrac. Aline's revolver is pretty due to its silver finish but is otherwise pretty standard and not that strong. On the other hand, Carnby's custom revolver has two barrels and two cylinders, and thus has a total of 12 bullets as it fires two of them at once.

In Ghost in the Shell, Togusa uses a Mateba Autorevolver instead of the standard-issue semi automatics of the rest of Section 9. The explanation for this is somewhat complex:
In the manga, the Major questions why he uses a revolver, when he should be afraid of it jamming, even if he carries a semi-automatic as backup. On the Major's request, he uses the semi-automatic throughout the manga. For some added irony, a semi-automatic of the same model jams in a later issue... In addition, Togusa is presented as someone with an odd gun choice, using an AS-11 shotgun in addition to his two handguns.
In one SAC episode, Togusa testifies in court that he prefers a revolver to an automatic because revolvers don't jam. It's implied that this is just him rationalizing, and that he really prefers them because he thinks they're cooler. He probably wouldn't have been so defensive if the guy asking wasn't acting as if this was case-turning material.
In a different episode, Togusa is able to quickly load a bullet containing an electronic tracer into his revolver and fire it into the bumper of a fleeing vehicle. He uses a similar trick in the first movie, with another character pointing out that, had he been using the standard issue semi, he could have planted two trackers on the car in the same time.
Ultimately, in Solid State Society, The Movie of Stand Alone Complex, Togusa has succeeded Kusanagi as the commander of Section 9, and has received cybernetic implants and, at the same time, replaced his revolver with a semi-automatic. He himself lampshades the symbolism behind this.

The first two Serious Sam games had him using revolvers with .45 Schofield ammo. Infinite .45 ammo, in fact; the guns were also accurate out to ridiculous ranges, and extremely useful for plinking at distant enemies who weren't aware of Sam or weak ones who were. (The manual really hammers this trope home; human R&D had just started to crack the enemies' infinite ammo technology, had time to use it to send Sam in with one Emergency Weapon that wouldn't rely on enemy resources for reloads, and picked .45 Schofield ammo as the best thing they could give him.)

In Jojos Bizarre Adventure, specifically Part 3, Hol Horse's Stand Emperor takes the form of a handgun that resembles a very elaborate looking revolver.
In Part 5, Guido Mista uses an actual revolver in conjunction with his Stand Sex Pistols.

Ghost in the Shell. When it's time to take on the Big Bad, Chief Aramaki wordlessly places on the table a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum encased in a leather holster, a 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.

In Battlefield 2142 the strongest handgun is the revolver, balanced out by the fact it has less ammunition and truly awesome muzzle climb.
Not to mention it had easily the best reload animation in the game, along with a loud boom that was just a terrifying to hear if you were on the PAC as hearing the Shuko Light Machinegun was to an EU player.
The EU revolver also looks to have ammo of a pretty impressive calibre when compared to the PAC pistol. And this revolver has eight shots compared to the typical six.

Subverted in The Godfather: The Game. Aldo's first gun is a .38 snubnose that is appropriately weak; even after getting the level 3 upgrade with its gold plating and ivory grips, it's still not good for much more than Boom, Headshot!. The pistol is stronger than the .38 and faster-firing than the Magnum. Meanwhile, the Magnum series may be the strongest handgun, able to match the shotgun for power and initially have better cylinder capacity, but once you get the level 3 upgrades for both you find that the level 3 shotgun, with its 10 rounds per "clip" and 100 round total capacity compared to the 8-80 of the level 3 Magnum, is preferable in a sustained engagement.
In the sequel, the .38 is no longer present. The pistol is faster-firing and has a bigger magazine than the Magnum, but the Magnum deals more raw damage. Furthermore, the shotgun has been greatly nerfed from the first game, with both smaller clip (yes) and total ammo capacity. Double Subversion: The Magnum is now the best.

In Super Robot Wars Original Generation, The Giant Revolver does more damage than the M95 Machine Gun for the same amount of upgrades. This is balanced by the fact that it only has 6 ammo, nearly half that of the machine gun. There is also the Revolver Stake weapon on the Alt Eisen. While not a typical revolver by a long shot, it definitely uses the imagery of one for coolness value
Also in the Gaiden Game OG Saga, one of Haken's weapons is the Longtomb Special, a revolver with an incredibly long barrel, with one extra feature.

Fallout 2 has a .44 Magnum Revolver that is available at The Den. This revolver can fire faster than the pistols you can find at the beginning of the game, and has more damage than the Desert Eagle as well. You can use it until up to New Reno, where there's the .233 Pistol, which has more damage. However, with the Fast Shot trait, you can shoot faster for one AP less. This means that you can fire the revolver three times with 9 AP. You can also upgrade the revolver to use a Speed Loader, which makes it reload for 1 AP. Cue The Chosen One shooting a revolver three times, then reloading it. All in one turn, if you maxed Agility to gain 10 AP. Now, if you get the perk Bonus Rate of Fire, you can fire it for 2 AP, which means that you can UNLOAD your chamber into a enemy (if you maxed Agility and took two levels of Action Boy/Girl to get 12 AP), then reload it and shoot it five times in the next turn. This makes the gun so powerful you can use it until you find a Gauss Pistol near the end of the game, which has the same rate of fire as the Magnum while doing massive damage and carrying twelve rounds for two turns of uninterrupted death. Revolvers really are Just Better.
It should be noted that the ".223 Pistol" is based on Deckard's gun. Confusingly, its look and design come from a .223 Steyr-Mannlicher's exposed bolt action, but the real-world prop was a revolver. Hence why the video game refers to That Gun as a rifle round-firing Hand Cannon.

Fallout 3 goes to town with this trope. In the stock game, the only semiauto pistols are the completely useless chinese pistol and the 10mm automatic, which is useful early on but soon discarded for something - almost anything - else. The .32 revolver is so weak it's not even worth talking about, but the scoped .44 Magnum is a far more powerful weapon, and the Blackhawk (special scoped magnum) is one of the most powerful small guns you can use and the best handgun in the entire game. It also makes a very cool noise. It's incredibly visceral getting headshots on Enclave soldiers in power armor. Then there's the official expansion, which adds a revolver that's even better than the Blackhawk, and another that somehow uses .44 ammo but fires pellets like a shotgun.
And then there are countless weapon mods, which add Vash the Stampede's gun, the original .223 pistol from Fallout 2, many real-world revolvers and even rarities like the Mateba Model 6.
Plus, there's the Mysterious Stranger's .44 Magnum, capable of one-shotting any (killable) character in the game. The only way you can get it yourself is by console commands.

Fallout 4 has a few nice (and not-so-nice) revolvers. The .44 Magnum hits like a truck, and legendary effects can make it absurdly powerful. Conrad Kellog, the Disc-One Final Boss, even uses one of these to kill your spouse in the prologue, and to fight you. The Western Revolver from Nuka-World is a fancier-looking (and even more powerful) .44 magnum, and can even have a scope attached for long-range shots, as the Western Revolver shoots with almost no projectile deviation. For more mundane weaponry, the Pipe Revolver Gun uses .45 rounds, and can be modded into either a pistol or rifle, and acts as a powerful early-game weapon, before .45 rounds become widely available.

Skulduggery Pleasant uses an older style revolver (give him a break, he is over 400 years old), and at one point he uses two of them, emptying both guns into the chest of one enemy, and then sticking a spike bomb in said wound before it could heal. The resulting explosion still didn't kill said monster.

E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy has 4 different pistols to choose from, the first two (and the weakest) are semi-automatics, the later two are revolvers and to say they are significantly more powerful is an understatement. The strongest of the bunch, the .444 Bear Killer, can bring down anything from random thugs to Power Armor wearing cybernetic super soldiers to military grade attack helicopters in less than 4 shots. However, the semi-automatics are generally more practical as a backup weapon due to larger magazines and overkill only being necessary against Heavy Jians, Interceptors, and Deus Exs. That being said, the .444 Bear Killer is perfectly capable of being a player's primary weapon.

Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes from AMC's The Walking Dead carries a large stainless steel revolver, despite the fact that most other modern American law enforcement officers have switched to semi-autos like the Glock. But then again, he is Rick Grimes, a serious badass. As the 6" stainless Colt Python is an out-of-production collector's item worth more than a half-dozen new Glocks, Rick is apparently also pretty loaded.

Gearbox, the people who made Borderlands certainly seem to think so, which is very true to its Space Western roots. When on your first playthrough as Mordecai, the guy who uses lots of pistols, the first guns you get are low-powered automatics. Later, you will find that the revolvers in this game are like combinations of pistols and sniper rifles. On top of that, every revolver pistol, especially Mashers, is a Hand Cannon. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, with revolver shotguns, revolver sniper rifles, revolver rocket launchers, which are all in seven shot, six shot, three shot, two shot, side-gate, cylinder swapping, break-open with speed loaders... almost every gun with under 8 rounds per reload uses revolver technology. Revolvers are also more prone to come equipped with a blade for melee attacks than any other gun.
With the Masher, a revolver that shoots shotgun shells, it's a case of Revolvers that shoot shotgun shells are just better.
Toned down in Borderlands 2 though. Revolver shotguns have been replaced with break action, drum magazine, and box magazine-fed shotguns, revolver rocket launchers are gone, but Torgue, Maliwan, and Jakobs continue the trend. Torgue's line of explosives-only weaponry extends to revolvers, and it is even possible to get a 14-round explosive Torgue revolver that shoots two bullets at once; all of Maliwan's pistols, which are elemental, are also revolver-like, and Jakobs still continues their Western line of revolving rifles and heavy revolvers, as their weapons retain their reliability and high damage from the first game with the new attribute of firing as fast as you can click.

In Planet Terror, when Wray and Abby take out the grotesquely mutated Lt. Muldoon, Wray, the American/Mexican(kind of hard to be positive which, although the actor is Puerto Rican) fires a revolver, while Abby, the Brit, fires an automatic. Both of them actually seem to be about equally effective.

BioShock
The first gun found in BioShock is a six-shot revolver that is somehow loaded by replacing the entire cylinder like a magazine. It's the most basic gun in the game, and deals relatively low damage. Until you upgrade it that is. When fully upgraded, it gains a damage-increasing "ammunition accelerator" and has it's clip size quadrupled by the addition of an extra ammunition attachment. This effectively turns the revolver into a belt-fed, Gauss-revolver. Not that you would need all that dakka, since once you get enough Research points one clean headshot with an Antipersonnel bullet is enough to kill all but bosses in mook clothing, and piercing rounds will put a huge dent in Big Daddies.
BioShock Infinite introduces the Hand Cannon, which has the 2nd best accuracy and damage of all bullet fed weapons (the sniper rifle being the only thing above it).

Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus: Vincent Valentine's main weapon, appearing first in the FFVII: Advent Children movie and later in said game, is the Cerberus, a massive three-barreled, three-cylinder double-action revolver (the barrels are arranged in a triangular setup with two side by side with one sitting on top) that fires all three barrels simultaneously when the trigger is pulled; the kind of nightmarish internal mechanisms and ridiculous trigger pull this would require is studiously ignored. In addition, it is powerful enough to take down helicopters. Though it takes a little longer to do so if you're actually playing the game. Word of God has also retconned the original game to state that the Cerberus should be considered his default weapon.
Squall Leonhart of Final Fantasy VIII uses a gunblade with a revolver handle. While he does get more powerful weapons throughout the game, this is his iconic weapon, and is used in every cutscene in which he needs to do something badass.
Evidently Noctis and Prompto are of this opinion in Final Fantasy XV as most of the weapons under the Firearm category tend to be revolvers. They're not particularly powerful compared to most other weapon categories, but they can be used while in cover and you can aim for weak spots with them.

Survival Crisis Z has the revolver as the starting weapon of the Doctor class, and a purchasable weapon for everyone else. Interestingly, the main benefits of this weapon aren't it's power (which is only slightly above average), but rather it's plentiful ammo and it's decent firing rate (which can be boosted to machinegun levels with a certain skill).

Mass Effect
While not a traditional revolver by any means (since revolvers have long been obsolete), the Cerberus-made M-358 Talon from Mass Effect 3 is a shotgun-pistol hybrid, and to ensure it fires properly, the gun has multiple heat sinks that rotates with each fire, akin to a 20th-century revolver. The "better" part of the trope comes with it being one of the most useful and heavy-hitting handguns you can get in the game, making it a favorite choice of a sidearm for players in both single-player and multi-player.
Mass Effect: Andromeda introduces the Sidewinder, which fits this trope far more traditionally than the M-358 Talon. A fantastic gun having a fast rate of fire and good damage output, its only limitation is its low, six-shot capacity.

GoldenEye (1997) on the Nintendo 64 gives you the Cougar Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the game, which will kill almost anything in one shot, and shoots through walls. Of course, it has an awful rate of fire, and limited bullets, but just about anything it hits is going down. It even sounds like a cannon when fired!

Zig-zagged in Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. The earliest revolvers you are likely to find are Colt Detective Special and Smith & Wession Model 10, which fire low-power .38 special rounds and are inferior in damage, stability, and fire and reload speed to the semi-auto Colt M1911, with a slightly more common ammo being their only advantage. However, Smith & Wesson M 27 .357 magnum is rare, but packs the big punch you'd expect.

Evidently Noctis and Prompto are of this opinion in Final Fantasy XV as most of the weapons under the Firearm category tend to be revolvers. They're not particularly powerful compared to most other weapon categories, but they can be used while in cover and you can aim for weak spots with them.

Averted in Red Dead Redemption: While the game takes place in the Old West, it still takes place in 1911, and pistols are slowly taking over. Most gunslingers you meet would probably prefer a revolver, but the game repeatedly points out that the Old West—and, by extension, gunslinging—is slowly dying out. Statwise, while revolvers are powerful, pistols usually aren't that far behind in terms of damage and have the advantage of being (semi-)automatic and often have larger magazines.

All of the cops in Death Note.
Also used during Takada's abduction; one of her bodyguards points a revolver at Mello in the manga. In the anime he instead points a semi-automatic pistol at him.
Japan is one of the few countries in the world, including Hong Kong, where its police departments (singular in the case of HK) still issue revolvers for patrolmen.

Danganronpa: The Danganronpa franchise utilizes (Truth) Bullets during Class Trials which are loaded into a metaphorical revolver. Certain trial minigames require the protagonist to fire bullets to shoot down contradicting arguments. Truth Bullets usually contain facts and evidence you have gathered during the Investigation Phase, but during trials, you can also absorb yellow arguments into your Truth Bullets to temporarily replace the original content.

Lennie Briscoe Law & Order used a snub-nosed .38 Special until the day he retired, while Mike Logan used one until he transferred to the Major Case Squad. Captain Cragen kept a spare one in his desk, and gave it to ADA Cabot when she was threatened (along with a permit in her name to carry it).
In a subtle Shown Their Work touch, the older detectives tend to use snub-nosed .38 revolvers, and the younger ones use 9mm semi-automatic because the NYPD allowed any officer who purchased a revolver prior to 1994 to keep it rather than upgrade to a SIG-Sauer P226 or Glock 19.

The scene in Knight Rider where Michael Knight is shot with a revolver has the shooter miming reloading the gun in the same way as the Preacher example. I believe there actually is some obscure revolver that loads like this, but it's doubtful the creators of the scene knew that.

Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield 4 have the MP-412 revolver that kills in 3 bullets, 4 at maximum range, compared to the other pistols that kill in 4 at the closest range at best. It has quite the kick and a small magazine of 6, however.

The standard pistol in BattleTech RPG spinoff Mechwarrior is described as a .357 Magnum equivalent, possesses six shots, and does more damage than almost any other slugthrower pistol (the one that does do more damage than it has exactly three shots, but not double the damage). It's also more powerful than some of the sniper rifles and SMGs. Particularly notable for doing more damage than some of the laser pistols and laser rifles available in the setting, at a fraction of the cost. There is also no action penalty for reloading (speedloaders are in play, presumably). It is inexpensive, widely available, reliable (as in it doesn't jam on a fumble result like automatics will, nor does it have any accuracy penalties), relatively unrestricted, and has a low skill requirement, meaning that any character who doesn't want to specialize in handguns but still wants a sidearm can buy a revolver and protect themselves in a pinch.

In Wapsi Square, Monica's grandpa used to carry a revolver back in the day. Notably, it is the same model that Indiana Jones carried in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Considering that Monica's grandpa was an Adventure Archaeologist who did a bit of Nazi killing in WWII, this was probably a deliberate Shout-Out.

Subverted in Back to the Future Part III. Marty is given a Colt Peacemaker for his shoot-out with Mad Dog Tannen, and is thrilled about having a real revolver, which he is shown to be incredibly accurate with (thanks to hours of practice on arcade games). Along the way he gets a reality check, doesn't use it in the duel, and gives it away completely unused.

Revolvers are the only handguns in Alan Wake. Considering there isn't a gunsmith in Bright Falls, however, it makes sense to own a gun that's relatively easy to maintain.
Zigzagged in Alan Wake's American Nightmare. The base revolver is one of the less powerful weapons available. The Magnum, on the other hand, is a revolver more powerful than a good portion of the two-handed weapons available, can shoot through enemies, and even has a larger magazine than the standard revolver. However, its spare ammo pool is quite small.

For the Gunslinger/ Gunsmith in Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura, the Fine Revolver is the best all around weapon until mid-game. Best rate of fire, best damage per shot, best damage per action point. After that you'll need to rely on the Handcannon (sawed off shotgun), then the Elephant Gun (heavy rifle) before you reach your endgame uberweapon: Droch's Warbringer, a fast-firing and extremely heavy revolver.

A couple times in Deadliest Warrior. In the Jesse James Vs. Al Capone episode, the Colt Revolver is tested against the Tommy Gun, and the Colt gets the edge for better accuracy and the Quick Draw. In the Back For Blood special, the IRA's Webley revolver is matched up against the Spetsnaz' Makarov pistol and the Makarov gets the edge due to it's higher rate of fire and faster reload.

Nero from Devil May Cry 4 uses a revolver for his gunslinging, as opposed to Dante's Guns Akimbo style. Said weapon, Blue Rose, features a truly insane two-barrel over/under configuration, the logistics of which are best ignored. It's the same kind of revolver as the Hand Cannon from Resident Evil 4 with a second barrel.
Although said revolver is not implied to be any better than Dante's guns. The only real application of this trope is that Nero's fully charged bullet is extremely powerful, although it takes forever to charge. Compare to Dante's guns, which are faster, and (uncharged) deal roughly the same damage during combat. However, during cutscenes, Dante's guns have enough power to take out Physical Gods. Plus, the over/under configuration of Nero's gun, while awesome, would mean the shooter would only be able to get three blasts off before needing to reload (which Nero is of course shown doing only once in the entire game).

The Saint of Killers from Preacher is appointed as the replacement for the Angel of Death, who melts his sword down into two revolvers for the Saint to use. Said revolvers can kill absolutely anything, are enchanted such that they never miss, never need reloading and each shot will never be less than fatal. In fact, the first person he kills after getting the job was the Devil himself. The last is God.
Preacher also features a subversion with Herr Starr, who near the end of the series, starts carrying a huge revolver around to substitute for his missing genitals. In the next to last issue, during his final duel with Tulip, he manages to nail her in the shoulder, get her against the wall with his revolver to her head and...click. If he'd stuck to an automatic, he would have won.

From the Metal Gear Solid series, Revolver Ocelot. It's right there in his Code Name. In the prequel Metal Gear Solid 3, he starts off with a semiautomatic and is pretty good with it, killing one man with a richochet shot. However, Snake notes his technique is more suited to using a revolver, and he soon switches to the Single Action Army. Interestingly, when he first switches to the revolver, it's shown he has to do some adjusting; for example, he doesn't realize the gun's only got six shots the first time he takes on Snake with itnote Compare the quote on top of this page, showing off his growth over the years. In any case, he rather enjoys reloading.
To go with the katana thing, when Ocelot blasts the Russian mook in the Tanker chapter of 2, the camera angles and Ocelot's pose as he holsters his revolver are extremely similar to the 'sheathe your katana after a Clean Cut' shots used after a Single-Stroke Battle. Right down to holstering it across-hip instead of same-hip.
If you contact Master Miller during the duel against him in the first game, you'll get an explanation of why the revolver is so powerful, at least for inflicting very nasty wounds. In gameplay terms for the games that let you use them, however, they're Awesome, but Impractical; they provide more stopping power than semi-automatic pistols (even the game's beloved .45 ACP handguns), but cannot be suppressed, which makes them unsuited to a Stealth-Based Game.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has three different types of revolver, all of which fit in the secondary slot:
The WU S333 (which also has short and long-barreled variants), sporting good damage per shot and good accuracy,
The Uragan-5, a revolver shotgun that has slug and non-lethal variants,
And the Tornado-6, Ocelot's Weapon of Choice in the game. It sports greater damage-per-shot than the WU S333 and can even take advantage of ricochets to hit enemies beind obstacles, but cannot be modified in any way. If the player chooses to play as Ocelot in FOBs, Ocelot will dual wield them.

Played with in the Lethal Weapon series: Riggs, the hotshot badass, packs a slick automatic while Murtaugh, the aging family man, packs an old-fashioned revolver. Riggs notes that "Lotta old-timers carry those". However, a running gag in the series has Murtaugh display sniper-like accuracy with a single aimed shot.
A bit of Truth in Television since Murtaugh is carrying an adjustable sight Smith & Wesson revolver which is much better suited to carefully aimed shots then Riggs fixed sight Beretta.

In spite of their name, The Dueling Pistols in Bastion are very clearly a pair of revolvers, as evidenced by both their design, and the fact their ammo capacity upgrades explicitly refer to cylinders. They fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, and can be upgraded to either cause knockback or entirely ignore armor. Their active skill is either a rain of lead titled Slinger Storm, or an aptly titled Duel Decider (a devastating Critical Hit.)

Zig-zagged in Girls' Frontline. Revolvers are part of the Handgun class, and like them are mostly valued by their ability to buff other units in the echelon. Guns like Nagant M1895 and Astra Revolver are good for early game but are easily replaceable later on (the former does get a very useful MOD 3 upgrade down the road). Colt Single Action Army is a staple buffer but competes with other handguns for a slot in most formations (though, like Nagant, her MOD 3 upgrade pushes her to the top of tier lists). Colt Python, on the other hand, has one of the best damage output for her class, making her invaluable for cost-efficient 5 HG compositions.

Gene Hunt of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes (2008) prefers a revolver to the standard police-issue semi-automatic handguns. Then again, he is a Cowboy Cop...
Jokes aside, Gene's character is shown to be a huge fan of The Western, and thinks of himself as The Sheriff, so his preference for a revolver is understandable.

Inverted in The Boondock Saints. The main characters berate their friend, David Della Rocco, for bringing a revolver to kill nine people, when his revolver only has six bullets. Rocco had been told there were only two or three men in the room; Rocco's boss, Papa Joe Yakavetta, was actually setting him up to be killed during the assassination so that it couldn't be traced back to the boss.

The only sidearm available to Artyom in Metro 2033 is, curiously enough, a revolver chambered in .44 Magnum (rather out of place in Moscow, as the .44 Magnum cartridge is only really popular in America). Next to the Bastard SMG, it's one of the most ubiquitous guns around. It is more accurate and does more damage per shot than most weapons firing the 5.45 round—justified, since those cartridges are survivor-made 'dirty' rounds and are inferior to proper 5.45 rounds. It the first game, it can be upgraded to a ridiculous degree, with accessories including an extended barrel or silencer, a scope, and a freaking stock, turning it from a handgun to a downsized revolver hunting rifle. It loses some of this versatility in the sequel, but a silenced version is the first weapon you're given once the game starts in earnest and can carry you through most of the game due to the ammo availability and the fact that it hits like a brick.
The semi-automatic shotgun is also a revolver. The DLC for Metro: Last Light adds a revolving shotgun made from bicycle parts, and it even retains its bicycle bell.

In the 3rd Edition of Necromunda, House Goliath's stub cannon is an oversized revolver Hand Cannon that requires two hands to use and has the stopping power equivalent to larger heavy weapons. The rules represent this by giving the weapon the highest strength of any solid-shot Basic type weapon that can blow a target off their feet.

Very early in the run of Perry Rhodan, one of the "tests" set by the sufficiently advanced alien known as IT on its own homeworld involves an authentic Western-style gunslinger who laughs at modern energy weapons and can only be defeated "in his own time" — which is to say, by being shot with an old Colt Peacemaker one of the protagonists has conveniently "accidentally" found earlier in the same issue (after which his body quickly disappears). As a clear mythology gag, the same character reappears once in a great while when somebody is looking for IT for some reason or other; he usually ends up getting killed in the exact same way.

In Jupiter Hell, .44 revolver deals the same damage as a .44 hunter rifle, which 1,5 times the damage of a 9mm pistol, even doing slightly more raw damage per shot than a CRI plasma pistol. Unlike the two of them, it has a 20% critical bonus that stacks with all your other critical modifiers. However, its chambers fit 6 bullets instead of 8, its range is inferior to a plasma pistol, and it is reloaded bullet-by-bullet.
There is also a rare JS .44 revolver, which is slightly more damaging than the normal version, and also has a better accuracy and a 30% critical chance. However, its chamber is limited to three bullets.
Guard-type enemies will always carry a .44 revolver in addition to either a basic 9mm pistol, or a plasma pistol if they used to be CRI. Weirdly, the normal, unpossessed, yet still-hostile CRI Guards that are encountered on Io only carry a plasma pistol, which makes one wonder how their possessed versions found theirs.

In Sakura Wars, the heroines who favor guns all wield revolvers; Maria Tachibana carries an Enfield No.2 Mk 1, while Rosita Aries favors a pair of Remington Model 1858s (one painted gold and the other silver). Gemini Sunrise carries a Colt Single Action Army, but she never uses it, favoring her katana instead. Additionally, Rosita's Star uses a pair of revolvers as its main weapons, while Gemini's has a revolver attached to its sword.

Warhammer 40,000:
The most common pattern of Astra Militarum grenade launchers have large revolver magazines. These weapons can be highly devastating and are very versatile due to their able, in the lore and some editions of the game, to load various types of specialist ammunition.
The Skitarii warriors of the Adeptus Mechanicus wield a number of weapons, such as the galvanic rifle, radium carbine and arc weaponry, are revolver weapons that fire a variety of Abnormal Ammo that make them far more effective than the equivalent weapons of most other armies.

Shadowrun has all sorts of very powerful handguns, even the smallest of which can kill when backed by the kind of skill that most 'Runners possess. The standard issue revolver (Ruger Super Warhawk) does very slightly more damage than the standard issue Hand Cannon (Ares Predator). In theory, this is balanced by the smaller ammo capacity.
In fact, it ends up doing more damage per shot than most assault rifles due to its stats (Both do the same amount of damage, but the Warhawk is better at penetrating armour (which everyone is wearing in Shadowrun.)
With later editions, the Ruger could be even more nasty, rules for gun modifications included altering or adding new firing modes, including turning the Ruger's single action to a double action. Thus lifting the gun's restriction of one shot per turn, doubling the potential damage output!

In Last Action Hero, the Big Bad, Benedict, uses this trope to maximum effect in one scene in the "real world". Benedict fires at Slater with his revolver until the hammer falls on a empty chamber. When Slater comes out of cover and points out that guns need to be reloaded in the real world, Benedict replies that he merely left one chamber empty and then shoots Slater with the bullet still left in his revolver.

The Spy in Team Fortress 2 has a Revolver as his primary weapon, replacing the tranquilizer pistol from the original games. It's the third most accurate weapon in the game (after the Sniper's rifle and the Soldier's rocket launcher) and is rather powerful. Unusually for a revolver, it also has one of the fastest reload speeds in the game (loads a whole new magazine at once with a loader in just over one second). The lack of health on the part of the Spy class makes it less useful in pitched firefights than you'd think, though.
On the other hand, a Spy can reliably utilize his revolver against other Spies, Snipers, and Scouts and even use his revolver to pick off bigger, bruiser-type targets with low health (due to the Spy having the ability to see the remaining health of any enemy he looks at). Its accuracy especially makes it very useful in situations where the Spy can get the drop on his enemy but isn't in a position to backstab.
The Spy has several more revolvers as unlockable weapons. The Ambassador trades lower base damage for the ability to deal headshots, L'Etranger trades lower base damage for the ability to restore Invisibility Cloak power with each hit, the Enforcer trades higher damage for a lower fire ratenote it originally traded higher base damage for a minor Invisibility Cloak nerf, which was so inconsequential a downside that it was deemed a Game-Breaker, and the Diamondback (a promotional weapon from Deus Ex: Human Revolution) trades lower base damage for guaranteed critical hits every time he successfully sabotages an Engineer building or backstabs an enemy.

It should be noted that the ".223 Pistol" is based on Deckard's gun. Confusingly, its look and design come from a .223 Steyr-Mannlicher's exposed bolt action, but the real-world prop was a revolver. Hence why the video game refers to That Gun as a rifle round-firing Hand Cannon.

Although he's been seen to use a wide variety of firearms in the comics, the movie incarnation of Hellboy carries the Samaritan, a huge and massively holy four-round revolver that fires equally huge and holy bullets. When that's not enough, Hellboy II: The Golden Army introduces the Big Baby, a grenade-launching revolver that can kill tree elementals. Ironically it's mentioned Hellboy can't aim worth crap though usually his targets are really big and at really close range.

The revolver in Krunker.io is the sole weapon of the Detective class, and so has to be correspondingly good. As such, it does the 2nd largest per-shot damage after Hunter's Sniper Rifle, and so it kills that Glass Cannon class in one hit, while two-shotting everyone else but the Mighty Glacier Spray N' Pray.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, General Shepherd's weapon of choice is a revolver (a .44 Magnum, to be specific). He uses it to kill Roach & Ghost, and nearly kills Soap with it before Price tackles Shepherd at the last split-second before/as he fires.
The last pistol to be unlocked in the online mode of Call of Duty: World at War is a revolver.
Its sequel, Call of Duty: Black Ops, has the Python... which is the only pistol that can have a scope. However, you can dual-wield it!

Averted on The Wire, Cutty is fresh out of jail and ready to get back into the drug game. When they send him on a hit and give him an automatic pistol, he complains that revolvers never jammed on him and that automatics can kill bystanders. Slim Charles promptly tells him that automatic pistols are now used because of the need for 15 bullets rather than six.

The Far Cry series has started taking advantage of this trope starting with Far Cry 3, where the top-level pistol of the first half of the game is a .44 Magnum revolver, which can be fitted with a longer barrel, illuminated iron sights, or a scope of some variety; it's powerful enough that one shot is a guaranteed kill on almost any non-animal enemy you meet in that half of the game. Far Cry 4 dials it back, however, as the starting Webley revolver has low power, a slow rate of fire, and a slow reload, and the returning .44 Magnum doesn't get its long-barrel option... as well as being held away until the point where you can simply skip it and go straight for the even better Desert Eagle.

The Revolver is considered a Legendary weapon in Foes.io. It does a whole 600 damage (next to Pistol's 300 and Silenced Pistol's 400), and thus is guaranteed to kill any rival player in 2 shots. It is also very accurate, and can fire twice a second, but obviously only has 6 bullets in it, when a Pistol comes with 20 and Silenced Pistol with 15.

In the Criminal Minds episode "Revelations", the UnSub plays Russian Roulette with a kidnapped and tortured Reid using a revolver. SA Reid later gets the revolver away from him and shoots him with it. Some time later, it becomes apparent that Reid has started using a revolver as his service weapon.
Several of the UnSubs use revolvers, The Reaper being one of the more notable ones. The BAU believes the UnSubs favor them because it ensures they won't leave bullet casings behind.

In The Dark Tower, Roland's revolvers are significantly more badass than the automatic handgun Jake brings from Earth. They're also cooler than the blunderbusses and semiautos that show up on occasion. Given that the metal of the revolvers was obtained from a melted-down Excalibur, one can hardly expect them to be otherwise. After using an automatic, Roland describes it as little more than a toy, and making him feel "dirty".

Averted in Pathologic, where the revolver is the least accurate and second-weakest gun available. Its only real advantage is a relatively large magazine size, but it is more than offset by its ammo being the most expensive one as well.

The Magnum is one of the most powerful guns in Black. It is almost as accurate as a sniper rifle and deals about as much damage as one, making it a guaranteed One-Hit Kill on Normal difficulty for all but the strongest enemies (who'll still go down in two shots or one headshot). Having one equipped is almost essential to winning the incredibly hard final fight.

Averted in Zombs Royale.io, where the revolvers once were practically the worst pistol variant in the game, as they dealt less damage per shot than Deagles, yet their fire rate was nearly as slow, and far lower than that of other pistols, making it difficult to win a proper shootout with it. Later updates addressed that somewhat.

Pathfinder's rules for advanced guns make the revolver a nasty weapon indeed - sure, it only does 1d8 damage, but it chews through armor of all kinds when fired within 100 feet, and can be fired six times before it needs reloading, leaving the wielder's other hand free - a hand which will probably be holding another revolver.

In one SAC episode, Togusa testifies in court that he prefers a revolver to an automatic because revolvers don't jam. It's implied that this is just him rationalizing, and that he really prefers them because he thinks they're cooler. He probably wouldn't have been so defensive if the guy asking wasn't acting as if this was case-turning material.
In a different episode, Togusa is able to quickly load a bullet containing an electronic tracer into his revolver and fire it into the bumper of a fleeing vehicle. He uses a similar trick in the first movie, with another character pointing out that, had he been using the standard issue semi, he could have planted two trackers on the car in the same time.
Ultimately, in Solid State Society, The Movie of Stand Alone Complex, Togusa has succeeded Kusanagi as the commander of Section 9, and has received cybernetic implants and, at the same time, replaced his revolver with a semi-automatic. He himself lampshades the symbolism behind this.

In the novel that inspired Logan's Run, the sandman guns are six cylinder revolvers, each cylinder loaded with its own special cartridge. The homer would follow and kill the runner. The tangler was a webbing bomb, the ripper would go through armor, the nitro was self-explanatory, the vapor was a gas bomb, and the needler, which function was not explicitly stated, could be conjectured to be a needle slug filled with an anesthetic.

Averted with the OT-38 revolver in Surviv.io, which is usually considered the second-worst pistol-type weapon in the game, and one of the worst weapons in the entire game. While it is very accurate, and deals pretty good damage per shot, its fire rate is so low that actually killing anyone not already grievously wounded will take far too long next to anything else - unarmed players straight-up punching OT-38 wielders to death indoors is the rule, rather than the exception. You can dual-wield it to fire a bit faster and get double the ammo, but then you lose its accuracy advantage and get double the reload time.
However, the trope is played straight with the Peacemaker revolver, which has one of the highest DPS in the game. However, it is only available in the Desert mode/Potato mode, and is restricted to the rare .45 ammunition, which it burns through all-too-quickly. Thus, a Model 84 rifle can often be a safer bet as far as .45 weapons go, simply because of its range and more consistent damage.

PlanetSide 2's best pistols are the NS Underboss and Commissioner revolvers, the latter of which can one-hit-kill infiltrators with a headshot and both can kill anyone else with three body shots. Both pistols are very popular among players, especially the Commissioner, due to their accuracy, stopping power, and ammo efficiency. They also sound and look cool with their strange split-cylinder reloading mechanism. The only pistol which can even hope to compete with the revolvers in power is the Terran Republic's standard issue TX1 Repeater, a burst-fire pistol.

Hong Kong Action Theatre is better about revolvers than Feng Shui is, thanks to all pistols being considered either Small Caliber, Mid-Caliber, Large Caliber, or Hand Cannons. Your standard .38 snub is a Mid-Caliber pistol (making it equivalent to a 9mm); a .44 Special is a Large Caliber pistol (making it about equal to a .45) and a .357 or .44 Magnum is a Hand Cannon (which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin). Under the reloading rules, you only run out of bullets on a gun if you roll a 1, 2, or 3 on D20, meaning as long as your dice luck holds out, you can blast off as many times as you want, though once you do run out of bullets, reloading takes a full turn.

The most powerful handgun in GURPS: High-Tech is the Ruger Super Redhawk, a revolver.
Revolvers also do possess a few benefits over "autoloaders". For one, if you suffer a Misfire, you can simply pull the trigger again instead of having to immediately service the weapon. Secondly, they stand less of a chance malfunctioning when fired underwater. Finally, they, along with manual repeaters, do not suffer a reduction in reliability when shot in outer space.

The mod has an unusual example in that while the revolver (A Taurus Tracker 455) is not especially powerful, being chambered in .45 ACP, it is one of the most practical weapons in the game, being loud enough not to attract a large number of zombies.
The Magnum in the Standalone is liked by many over the semiautomatic pistols for many reasons. Style, power and the fact that you don't need to find magazines (Which primarily spawn in Airfields which are known as Death Traps due to hostile players heading straight for them to find powerful weapons) are popular reasons.

Verdun has three types of revolvers. M1883 Reichsrevolver fires and reloads extremely slowly compared to other pistol-type weapons, but is highly accurate and can One-Hit Kill. Webley Revolver fires and reloads substantially faster, but is only somewhat more powerful and accurate than the semiautomatic pistols. M1892 is somewhere between the two in terms of damage and reload rate.

The Project Brutality WAD for Doom 2 has the Revolver. It's a powerful Hand Cannon that can shred weaker enemies and deliver a nasty punch to stronger ones but it has only six-shots meaning you have to reload it sooner than any other weapon, can't be silenced unlike the .45 pistol, and it only starts showing up at later levels. Due to how the gameplay works, it's easier to use the rifle and pistol to kill weaker foes with headshots and use rapid-fire weapons for stronger ones to force them to flinch and prevent them from attacking.

Player's starting weapon in Rage is The Settler, a hefty revolver that holds a whopping twelve rounds. Additional ammo types include the heftier Fat Boys (which are limited to six-round cylinders), all-in-one Killbursts, and Fat Mammas (which act like Fat Boys with the added benefit of penetration). In comparison, everyone else in the game who carries a pistol is limited to a Colt .45.

In XIII it was possible to fan the revolver for rapid fire. However, this was rarely used due to the rarity of its ammo, and because the player wasn't lacking for rapid-fire options anyway, while revolver's main use was to score headshots from a long ways off.

In Firefly, Jayne Cobb's sidearm of choice (though not his very favorite gun) is a revolver, and Wash uses a few of them over the course of the series. On the other hand, Mal's pistol is a semi-automatic, and sees a lot more use.
It's worth noting however that the real-world prop for Mal's pistol is based on the five shot Taurus 38 revolver.

Averted in Nuclear Throne, where the revolver is the starting weapon of most classes. While it's functional, it is still the one weapon they'll want to ditch as quickly as possible, since it has no advantages whatsoever over even the machine gun or a pop gun weapons that can be found almost immediately, let alone the more specialized weapons.

From Bayonetta 2 there's Secret Character Rosa, Bayonetta's mother, and her revolvers called Unforgiven, which she wields on both her hands and feet. They are basically a quartet of hand cannons, and do three times as much damage as any other weapon in the game, balanced out by the fact their wielder has very low defense and is a Glass Cannon.

In StarCraft II, James Raynor carries a revolver. He has it loaded with one bullet, the loaded chamber rotated away from the barrel, presumably as a safety precaution. It is not intended to be used for combat though, instead Raynor intends to use it on his arch enemy, Dominion Emperor Arcturus Mengsk. However, he ends up using it on his old friend Tychus.

Mass Effect: Andromeda introduces the Sidewinder, which fits this trope far more traditionally than the M-358 Talon. A fantastic gun having a fast rate of fire and good damage output, its only limitation is its low, six-shot capacity.

In the Aubrey-Maturin series, Stephen Maturin has one of the earliest "revolving pistols", in around 1812. Note that these were flintlock rather than percussion cap, required you to spin the drum by hand, and had a tendency to jam.
Matthew Hervey also gets one a few years later in Alan Mallinson's books.

Subverted in Unknown Armies, where the limited ammo and average damage combine to make most other handguns more useful (not that guns are that great in the game without proper skill). Still commonly used by Entropomancers, adepts who draw power from risk, because what good is a gun that can't play Russian Roulette?

In Overkill's The Walking Dead, revolvers deal more damage than semi-automatic pistols, but they generally hold less ammo and take longer to reload. Worst of all, they can't be silenced, which matters a lot given the focus on trying not to alert every single zombie in the vicinity.

Subverted in Feng Shui. Revolvers only have a limited amount of ammo, and reloading takes five shots compared to the one shot that you spend to reload a semiautomatic pistol unless you buy up the Lightning Reload gun schtick, meaning that you're going to be a while reloading and are probably going to be best off behind cover while doing so unless you opt for the New York Reload. Still, magnum revolvers do more damage on average than your regular semiautomatics, but when you've got weapons like the AMT Automag V and the Desert Eagle, which outdamage just about any other pistol out there and have the faster reload time, the only reason to even use a revolver is cool factor.
Then again, Feng Shui is built upon the Rule of Cool, so that could very well be reason enough.

Colt Anaconda from Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 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.
