A DoubleWeapon is a variation of dual-wielding in which the character wields two weapons that are attached together. For the firearms variant, see GunsAkimbo. When combined with GunsAkimbo, you get SwordAndGun. An easy way to up the ante even further is to be MultiArmedAndDangerous. Any fighting style with multiple weapons may be a manifestation of HeroicAmbidexterity.

* ''TheLegendOfZelda'':
** Link can dual-wield clawshots in ''VideoGame/LegendOfZelda:TwilightPrincess''. Not for fighting, but for puzzles. And for playing Spider-Man. Too bad it can only latch onto metal grating.

** Lloyd in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. Actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], as Kratos mentions how using two longswords goes against what the art of the sword is about, and Lloyd reveals that he's using them simply because of the RuleOfCool -- as the opening quote makes apparent, he thinks more swords means more power. Hilariously this leads to Kratos giving Lloyd what the latter thinks is a "look of pity." Amusingly, this is actually justifiable. Like most main characters in the setting, Lloyd uses an AmplifierArtefact called an Exsphere, which boosts his strength and dexterity to superhuman levels: meaning that he actually ''can'' dual wield without (most) of the usual drawbacks.

** ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'' brings the Ninja back, but also gives us the Charioteer, which [[UpToEleven injects all kinds of drugs]] into this trope by letting you equip weapons in your helmet and armour slots and ''quad'' wield.

In the Charioteer's defense, that's more "lugging around four weapons and alternating between them" than "swinging four weapons at once".

* Lucia of the [[FanonDiscontinuity unmentionable]] ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' title dual-wields daggers, while Dante does this in the third game with the Agni & Rudra [[ElementalRockPaperScissors fire and wind]] scimitars. Vergil takes it a step further with his Yamato katana and Force Edge broadsword, although quasi-realistically enough he doesn't try to strike with both at the same time.
