* One of the most distinctive features of the dinosaur ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iguanodon Iguanodon]]'' is a thumb spike, a sharp protuberance on both of the dinosaur's hands in the rough position of a thumb on a human hand. There is some debate as to what the spike actually did, with most paleontologists theorizing that it was used for self-defense, or in combat with other ''Iguanodon'', wheras others believe it was used to crack open hard-shelled fruits, seeds or nuts.

* '''Type III''': Replacing one or [[DualWielding both]] of [[PowerFist your hands]] or even [[ArtificialLimbs your arms]] with large swords.

The last type is AwesomeButImpractical, as the blades prevent their wielders from performing mundane tasks when not in combat. They are also especially prone to [[FakeArmDisarm Fake Arm Disarms]], as they can be destroyed without gravely injuring the characters. Crafty opponents can also [[HoistByHisOwnPetard maneuver the wielder]] into [[LeftStuckAfterAttack getting them stuck in a wall or something else]]; and because the weapon is attached to the wielder entirely, letting it go isn't exactly an option. While these drawbacks mitigate many of the practical benefits of having swords attached to your body as opposed to carried, few will have the guts to question your [[RuleOfCool coolness]] or badassery.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', in the Shivering Isles expansion, we have the Gatekeeper, a sizeable [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein-like]] monster guarding the entrance to the Isles. One of his arms is a giant blade. [[spoiler:After killing the monster, we are tasked later on with putting him back together, using various body parts. For his arm, we can choose between the exact same blade and also an axe and a mace. The cut content suggests that there was also a regular fist to be included too...]][[/folder]]

He has an [[FantasyMetals ebony]] blade permanently fused to his right arm, hence his MeaningfulName. He is also a BlackKnight, [[TwentyFourHourArmor never seen]] without his suit of dark ebony armor.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': Arcee has two retractable forearm-mounted blades, while Optimus and Ratchet have ones that can replace their hands when necessary. Optimus has full-length swords similar to his movie weapons, while [[CombatMedic Ratchet's]] could sort-of pass for surgical tools.
