** Siegfried Schtauffen and thus his SuperpoweredEvilSide, Nightmare, are ambidextrous. However, while Siegfried prefers to wield his sword in his right hand, Nightmare prefers to wield it in his left hand.
*** Siegfried holds his sword with his left hand nearer to the crossguard, which is more typical of lefties.
** The Nightmare in ''Soulcalibur 5'' is left-handed. It's assumed that his new host, Graf Dumas, is actually [[spoiler:Raphael Sorel, the only left-handed fighter besides the Nightmare]].

lefties). Nightmare doesn't zig-zag and just holds the sword in his left hand.
** The Nightmare in ''Soulcalibur 5'' is using a different host, yet remains left-handed. It's assumed that his new host, Graf Dumas, is actually [[spoiler:Raphael Sorel, the only left-handed fighter besides the Nightmare]].

* Higuchi in ''Manga/DeathNote'', though nobody mentions it. Light's ambidexterity probably counts as well.
** From the viewpoint of the Kira followers, this would apply to Matt.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': An interesting case with the Straw Hats, as none of them are evil, but a large number of them have something of importance on their left side. Luffy has his scar underneath his left eye. Nami's tatoo is on her left arm. Zoro's earrings are on his left ear, and although ambidextrous appears to prefer his left hand. Usopp always wears his wrist band on his left hand. Sanji's left eye is always covered. Chopper's antler plate is located on his left antler. Interestingly enough, the two Strawhats that finally break this pattern,[[spoiler: Robin and Franky,]] are both introduced to the story as villains/antagonists to the Strawhats. [[spoiler: Brook]] then completely subverts it, as his one asymmetrical trait is on the right side of his face.
** Sanji also subverts this after the TimeSkip, when his PeekABangs switch eyes to cover his right one instead.
** To be fair, they ''are'' all pirates.
** Also worth noting is that when DualWielding, Zoro's favored left hand is using a supposedly [[EvilWeapon cursed sword.]]

* [[{{Superman}} Lex Luthor]] also had a mechanical right hand for a while; he lost the original to Kryptonite poisoning. Naturally, he took Rotwang's role in the {{Elseworld}} ''Superman's Metropolis''.

* In ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'', [[spoiler: [[TheMole Magolor]] is, if you look carefully in the fights against him, clearly left-handed, though you don't see this much until you already know he's evil.]] Furthermore, in ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror'', [[DarkIsNotEvil Meta Knight]] has his dominant hand inverted while within the mirror from right to left, however, while within the mirror, [[EvilTwin Dark Meta Knight]] still uses his right hand, implying that, in the normal world, he would be left-handed. [[ObviouslyEvil Not that you need that to tell that he's a bad guy.]]

* Inverted by Nanoha, the left-handed heroine of the ''LyricalNanoha'' series, which is full of right-handed villains. Unless you take her {{fanon}} [[BloodKnight reputation]] into consideration.

* In the Bible, the tribe of Benjamin were distinguished by having a predominance of left-handed people. Naturally this cussed streak led them to war with the rest of Israel, where their left-handed swordsmen and slingers were seen as an un-natural thing, able to preferentially target the unshielded side of an opponent and leave right-handed swordsmen at a fighting disadvantage, when the enemy weapon came at them from the "wrong2 side.

* Notably inverted with [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] of ''The Legend of Zelda'' though this is absent in the Wii titles. It should be noted ShigeruMiyamoto himself is ambidextrous, preferring his left hand.
