** Also from the backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]. He was known to wield the Sword and Mace of the Crusader in this fashion, making him all the more deadly during his {{Unstoppable Rage}}s.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Worf is consistently depicted preferring to dual-wield a pair of Klingon shorts words instead of the more iconic, two-handed bat'leth (ironic since he helped ''make'' it iconic on [[StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]). He advocates for this style in a debate with a sparring partner, saying that the larger weapon leads many warriors to over-confidence. In an episode near the end of the series, he's engaged in a duel of honor which requires him to use a bat'leth. His actually ''breaks''; but as his opponent closes in, raising his weapon overhead for a finishing blow, Worf dual-wields the shards as a desperate ImprovisedWeapon, lethally piercing his enemy's exposed gut and winning the duel.

* YagyuJubei in the ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' games wields a ''daisho'', the proper {{Samurai}}'s armaments consisting of a katana and a wakizashi. The shorter wakizashi is held in his left hand and is generally used for quicker attacks while the katana is held in his right and delivers the stronger attacks, including many of the special moves. However, Jubei uses the wakizashi to set up the ''[[CounterAttack Yagyu Shingan-to]]'' from the second game onwards.

** As of 5th Edition, hearkening back towards some of 3.x' sensibilities, characters may wield a second weapon in their other hand (no mention of off-hands this edition) and attack with it at the cost of a Bonus action. This limits the feasibility of dual wielding somewhat: you only have 'one' Bonus action a turn - there is no switching in or altering other actions to allow for multiple Bonus actions, and you generally have better uses for such limited but important an action in your game turns; additionally, without feats of training, the extra attack cannot gain benefits from your offensive statistics with regards to damage dealt.

* Pal Kinizsi, a legendary captain of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary's army was often described by chronicles as always riding into battle wielding two long swords, however the few portraits remaining of him always depicted him with arming swords, which would be a bit more believable.[[labelnote: Note for those confused]]A real "longsword" is a two-handed sword; an "arming sword" is what RPG makers and fantasy writers often incorrectly refer to as a "longsword".[[/note]]
