* Fate of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has [[SwissArmyWeapon Bardiche's]] Riot Zanber form, which is a pair of energy sabers connected by an energy thread. That's right, Fate endorses [[InstantChucks sword-chucks]]. They can also be combined to form an ''even larger'' version of the weapon's [[{{BFS}} Zanber form]].

* The otters' javelins in the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series are double-sided, [[spoiler: leading to Cludd's death in ''Mossflower''. The otters spike several javelins into the ground before Cludd duels with Skipper, who then flings him into the air and [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath causes him to land on the upward points]].]]

DualWielding characters use a weapon in each hand, which is [[RuleOfCool cool]]. Do you know what's even cooler? Using a single weapon with two ends. It could be a stick with sword-blades on both ends, or maybe a double-bladed[[note]]Not to be confused with "double-'''edged'''", which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin one blade with both edges being sharp]] -- and may or may not overlap with "double-bladed" (two separate blades on the same weapon).[[/note]] sword, coming out of both ends of the hilt (in the former case, the weapon is usually wielded like a bladed SimpleStaff.) If a Double Weapon is light enough (or the wielder is [[SuperStrength strong enough]]), then it can be {{dual wield|ing}}ed for a total of ''four'' blades. Fighting using a Double Weapon often involves a lot of [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning attacks.]]

** In ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 5'' (And as a result, the ''WarriorsOrochi'' series), Cao Pi also wields a double-ended sword, which literally looks like two conventional, western broadswords attached end-to-end. During some attacks, he'll also split them up DualWielding combos. Sadly, he got downgraded to a boring ol' sword in 6, while his wife switched from an [[MusicalAssassin elegant flute]] to [[WhipItGood a whip]]. However, he gains his double sword back in ''8''.

** In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', some of the Blood Warriors of the Bloodbound Warhordes wield a Goreglaive, a brutal polearm with a large and heavy axe blade at each end that is extremely effective at cleaving through armour.

* The Dual Katana, Club, Naginata, and Shuriken from ''Videogame/FireEmblemFates'' have this design. They also reverse the game's [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weapon triangle system]] and double the strength of its effects.
