"What's that? You want me to take this? Well I guess it's dangerous to go alone."
Lo Wang, after taking Tosainu for the first time.

The Tosainu Type 13 Revolver is the first ranged weapon that the player gets in Shadow Warrior (2013). It is found in Chapter 1 on a dead security guard near a gaping hole in the left building.


The Tosainu Type 13 Revolver is a slow firing revolver that has a cylinder of eight rounds, though it inflicts decent damage per shot against lesser demons, like Crawlers. The revolvers upgrades further increase it's long range effectiveness and rate of fire.

Though not suited for close range encounters, the Single Action upgrade, which allows you to hold down the trigger with the right mouse button and fan the hammer with the fire button like an Old West revolver, fixes this disadvantage and makes the Tosainu a very deadly weapon. The gun's description states that it's the most powerful and reliable revolver ever made and it is a favored weapon of security advisors worldwide.


The Tosainu revolver is best suited for headshots as it will kill lesser demons instantly. Because of its high accuracy, it's the best weapon to use against flying Birdmen, especially when the Single Action upgrade is unlocked. The Tosainu also works in breaking armor on bosses, as well as blowing up the glowing green explosive pods of Mothers.


Extended Barrel: Increases accuracy by 50%.

Magazine Upgrade: Holds slightly more ammo.

Lightweight Cylinder: Increases rate of fire by 20%.

Single Action: Adds rapid fire.


  • Upon taking the gun from the dead man, Lo Wang says; "Well, I guess it's dangerous to go alone," referencing the memorable quote from the 1986 game, The Legend of Zelda, and the use of the quote online as a popular internet meme.
  • While the name of the weapon is fictional, the Type 13 bares many similarities to the Chiappa Rhino revolver and the Mateba Model 6 Unica.
  • The Tosainu is named for Japan's largest dog breed, the Tosa Inu (土佐犬). Named for the region it was bred in, the name literally means 'Tosa Dog'. A variety of mastiff, they are large, imposing, stubborn and strong-willied, banned in many countries due to a reputation for viciousness.
