** Nico Robin, whose [[TouchedByVorlons Devil Fruit]] ability allows her to grow vast numbers of replicas of any of her body parts (she almost always uses it to make more arms). She can grow them from any place. ''Any'''. Place.
** Hatchan, an octopus fishman, has six arms.
** Roronoa Zoro has also developed a technique that, via [[WordOfGod the physical manifestation of his dark feelings]], grants him three heads and six arms, for a total of nine swords (one in each hand, and one in each mouth).
** Vice Admiral Onigumo has a Spider Devil's Fruit, whose mastery of it allows use to manifest the extra arms he'd normally get in his hybrid form via his hair, allowing him to use eight swords at once.
** During the Thriller Bark story arc, we get a brief glimpse at a zombie general who has four arms, [[GunsAkimbo each holding a pistol.]] Given the nature of the island's zombies, we can presume that these were grafted on by [[MadScientist Dr. Hogback]].

arm count to ''six''.
** [[spoiler:Wonderweiss]]'s release form also lets him grow a bunch of extra arms coming
from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''.his shoulders.



* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''
** Enkidudu, the final and most powerful version of Viral's Ganmen.
** A parody drama CD (100% official, just not canon) also has a six-armed version called Enkidududu and an eight-armed Enkidudududu.
** Tengen Toppa Enki Dulga has two faces and fourteen arms wielding [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill THIRTEEN SWORDS]] and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers a Kanabo]] in the second film.
* Masashi Kishimoto likes to use this trope in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Kidoumaru, one of the Sound Four ninjas has six arms.
** Sasori has the Third Kazekage's puppet form equipped with this, ironically being one of the few examples in the series to be caused by a jutsu.
** One of [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Pain's]]]] multiple bodies, the Asura Path, has six arms, and on top of that, THREE FACES. Like all the other [[spoiler:Paths of Pain]], this is actually a reference to Buddhism; the asuras are a type of diety which also have those features.
** Hosts of a tailed beast are capable of making limbs out of chakra sprout from their body. Killer Bee makes CombatTentacles while [[spoiler:Naruto eventually learns to make them into many extra limbs that can each make their own Rasengan. This even includes making a pair of tiny hands coming from his finger that form their own tiny Rasenshuriken.]]
** By far and away the most dangerous example of this trope is [[spoiler:Madara Uchiha's Susanoo, especially its perfect form. Four arms, two strange blades, and capable of contributing to his techniques through also using hand signs. He cuts a mountain in half with it just to show off!]]
** The above example is topped by, fittingly enough, [[spoiler:his archenemy Hashirama Senju. To fight a Nine-Tails sheathed in the above-mentioned Perfect Susanoo, he creates a giant moving [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kannon Kannon]] statue, complete with ''one thousand arms''.]]
** [[spoiler:Asura]] sports a 6-armed, 3-headed variant of Kurama's chakra form. [[spoiler:Naruto jerry-rigs a similar aura by fusing three Kurama clones together while in Six Paths Sage Mode, and he uses the additional appendages to form a normal/Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken combo, powerful enough to engulf ''an entire country''.]]
* One of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek one-off]] characters in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Rouge, fell into "The Spring of Drowned Asura". Asura is a Hindu god (or demon) with three faces and six arms. Rouge and Pantyhose Taro manage to destroy the Tendō home in a fight over therapeutic magnets.



* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
** Nnoitra Gilga, whose released form allows him multiple arms, as well as regeneration powers. Initially he has four arms, and four [[SinisterScythe scythes]] to go with them. When one of his arms is promptly sliced off by his opponent, the regeneration kicks in and he also ups the arm count to ''six''.
** [[spoiler:Wonderweiss]]'s release form also lets him grow a bunch of extra arms coming from his shoulders.



* Mamoru Nagano is probably the king of this trope, because if he designs mecha the chances are that they ''will'' be multiarmed. In his own series, ''Manga/TheFiveStarStories'', the biggest, nastiest and most heavily armed mecha of all times, the ''Jagd Mirage'', had not just two like ''The O'', but four deployable sub-arms, which, together with its two additional sub-legs, drove the limb count to ''ten''. These sub-arms could be used to wield swords of guns, but generally were used to manipulate shields (called ''[[CallARabbitASmeerp veils]]'' there) to cover the mecha and brace it against the immense recoil of the two [[WaveMotionGun truly titanical cannons]] it carried as its main armament.



* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' has fun with this trope in several series.

* One of the teams in ''Manga/TheLawOfUeki'', which has a military theme, has a guy whose special ability is growing extra arms. To carry more guns. The upgraded form of this ability is even more arms. To shoot even more guns.
* In the ''Manga Creator/WilliamShakespeare'' version of ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', Macduff appears to sport two extra cybernetic arms under his normal ones, allowing him to use [[DualWielding four ]][[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas ]]at once.
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha TheMovie First'', the GiantMook from the original series that Nanoha and Fate worked together to take down was replaced with a six-armed HumongousMecha. Unsurprisingly, it was a lot harder to take down than the original two-armed GiantMook.
