* Guitar, the [[MixAndMatchCritters dog/deer]] swordsmaster from ''ViolinistOfHameln'', wields at least four swords at once, holding a pair in a claw-like grip in each hand. He's murderously proficient with this style.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels added this to the film series.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels added this to the film series. Since lightsabers are weightless beyond their hilts and effortlessly cleave through anything, [[ItMakesSenseInContext it shouldn't take much strength to dual-wield them]], except against other lightsabers. Of course, we ''only'' see multi-lightsaber styles being used against other lightsaber users....

* In ''FireEmblem'', assassins wield dual daggers in combat (they are swords in the item menu in the Game Boy Advance games (replaced with actual knives starting with ''Path of Radiance''), but when you see the battle animations, they are clearly daggers). They are used to great effect in the games the assassins appear in, where each time an assassin attacks, there is a chance the unit will instantly kill the target.
* This skill is called Silencer in ''The Sacred Stones'' and Lethality in ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''. The Pirate class also dual-wields ''axes''.
* In the Tellius saga (''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn''), there is [[ActionGirl Altina]], one of the Three Heroes and first Queen of Begnion, who [[DualWielding Dual Wielded]] ''two'' ''[[{{BFS}} BFSs]]'' (Ragnell and Alondite).

** However, despite what the animations show, from a pure gameplay perspective, only one weapon can be used as a time. Take for example the Swordmasters in ''FireEmblemAwakening'': their sprites show them wielding two swords, but their battle animations only show them ever using one.



* In ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' you can dual wield two shields. I'm not kidding.



* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' allows you to wield any weapons (including shields) in either hand, although dual wielding sacrifices your ability to parry for extra attacks, unless that weapon is something like the Parry Dagger.

to:

* In ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'', dual wielding serves as a middle ground between weapon & shield combo and two-handed weapons. Dual wielding grants a bonus to damage and attack speed, as well as a chance to block. The only restriction is that you cannot dual wield both a melee and ranged weapon. Certain skills let you attack with both weapons and effects that only apply to weapons on the off-hand, but there are also ways to completely ignore your off-hand weapon for dealing damage and simply utilize it as a StatStick.
* In ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and its spiritual successor
''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' allows you to wield any weapons (including (even shields) in either hand, although dual wielding sacrifices your ability to parry for extra attacks, unless that weapon is something like the Parry Dagger.



* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' greatly expands on dual wielding compared to the previous two games, allowing you to go into a special stance called Power Stance that incorporates swinging both weapons while dual wielding. In the case of the Caestus, the undead goes from GoodOldFisticuffs to a BoxingBattler.
* ''VideoGame/InfinityBlade'' ''II'' introduces dual wielding. While it disables blocking, you gain 2 extra Stamina to compensate and you can continuously chain combos for a greater damage potential.

* In the final episode of ''TransformersArmada'', Optimus Prime breaks off Galvatron's horns and uses them as a pair of swords.

** Starscream from ''[[TransformersArmada Armada]]'' can turn one of his wings into a sword, but sadly only one. Fortunately, after the Star Saber is constructed, he gets a chance to wield it alongside his normal weapon. His fellow ''Armada'' Decepticon, Wheeljack, follows the trope with a pair of, um, sticks (which the anime reinterpreted as really unergonomic [[GunsAkimbo guns]]).

* In ''Literature/DarthBane'', Bane's lightsaber instructor in the Brotherhood of Darkness mentions all of the downsides of Dual Wielding to discourage his students from learning it, while being a master of dual wielding himself. This isn't hypocrisy; [[Sabotutor he just wants to have an advantage in case he ever has to fight his students to the death]], [[ProperlyParanoid a reasonable concern]] given that they are all [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Sith]]. Bane is quickly overwhelmed during their duel because he doesn't know how to handle a dual wielding opponent [[spoiler:so he uses the Force to bring the ceiling down on his former instructor.]]
