** Which is usually built into the game's expected strategy. A good example is TimeCrisis3. The first stage gives you a grenade launcher with two rounds near the end. GenreSavvy players will save it where the final boss, a giant tank turret, can be eliminated with just those two rounds. Less savvy players will use them in the trenches to clear out corners filled with enemies and have only the pistol left for the boss.

* Subverted in the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' series. Neither Rocky nor [[Creator/SylvesterStallone Stallone]] are left-handed, but throughout the movies he fights south-paw by preference. In fact, a substantial part of his training for the rematch against Apollo Creed in ''Film/RockyII'' centered on Rocky learning to fight right-handed, and switching to using his left at a crucial point in the fight to devastating effect. Rocky "is not left-handed", but unlike these other examples he is a distinctly superior fighter when favoring his off-hand.

** Thor pretty much {{Lampshades}} it in ThorTheDarkWorld, telling Loki that all the previous times they'd fought, Thor held the hope that the brother he loved remained somewhere, and that hope no longer exists to protect Loki from Thor's wrath.

** Also Rock Lee's fight with Gaara. At first, even with his speed, Lee can't get past Gaara's sand defenses. Guy tells Lee that it's time to pull out all the stops, and Lee starts taking off the weights on his legs. No one else thinks this would make much difference, and Gaara's siblings find it outright laughable...and then the weights shake the whole arena and form significant craters when they hit the floor. It turns out they were ''very'' heavy. Lee then resumes his attack, even faster than before and able to hit Gaara so fast his sand shield can't move fast enough to block him. Is then revealed that Gaara has a sand armor beside his sand shield and Lee attacks have done any significant damage.
Lee proceeds to introduce him to his Eight Gates Technique.

* In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Lancer fights using a long and short spear. During his first duel with Saber, his Master orders him to get serious, so he puts the short spear on the ground, giving the impression that it is an ordinary weapon. Eventually, Saber gets overconfident, parries his long spear, and lunges. At this point, Lancer suddenly kicks his short spear into his hand and stabs her. Turns out it was special after all, as it gives a WoundThatWillNotHeal.

* Played for drama in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' by Hiko Seijuro, who wears "a white cloak set with springs opposing the muscles and 10 kan (80 lbs) of shoulder-weights. It's been used by those who hold the name of Hiko Seijuro to restrain the inheritor of the Hiten Mitsurugi's power in times of peace." Having already established the superiority of his Kuzu Ryu Sen while wearing the cloak, he takes the cloak off and prepares to [[spoiler: attack Kenshin with full strength, forcing him to learn the succession technique or die trying]].

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Ruby's uncle Qrow fights Weiss' sister Winter Schnee in Volume 3 with a great sword. However, its been established already that he is a ''scythe user'', meaning that the whole time he was fighting against her without using his signature combat method and was able to keep up...''[[DrunkenMaster while drunk]]''.
** In a more literal example, during the same fight with Winter, Qrow starts the fight off with his sword in his left hand and only switches to his right hand once Winter pulls out her dual blades. The switch is very subtle, happening when he uses his sword to stop his ''[[KnockbackSlide knockback slide]]''.

In [[RealLife reality]] only about 10% of all people are left-handed and most of them are ambidextrous.

ambidextrous. They're ambidextrous because it's nececcsary and not by either choice or natural ability. The world is made for right-handed people.
