It'll be one pistol as before and you can be the gentleman and shoot the lady and starve to death yourself.

Starvers are villains who commit evil by causing starvation. Tyrants often willfully withhold food as punishment (as with President Snow in The Hunger Games and Maestro from Marvel) or manage their nation so poorly that none is available (as with Scar in The Lion King). Kidnappers will also do this to their victims (such as Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs), usually for a very personal and sick pleasure.

While there are very few gods who specifically rule over starvation Famine, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Biblical lore seems to represent this concept. Other gods will be seen causing starvation, sometimes out of rage (such as God in Maltheism punishing humans for improper conduct) or simply apathy towards human life (such as Hades causing winter by kidnapping Persephone).

Many villains can also take away people's food supply; the Black Mouth is an example.
