** In ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Marvel vs. Capcom 2]]'', the trope title is a nickname for the team of Spiral, Omega Red, and Shuma Gorath.

* The "Moties" from Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's ''Litrerature/TheMoteInGodsEye'' have asymmetric limbs -- two small arms on the right, and one massive arm (the "gripping hand") on the left. (This is thought to be a result of having their genes cluttered with millions of years of mutations from the endless cycles of nuclear wars caused by their biological need for constant pregnancy. The latent genes for four limbs are still present, as the Warrior and Watchmaker castes still show.) Which allows arguing nerds to use the phrase "on the gripping hand" where normal people might say "but on the other hand", realize they want to go on to present a third option, and be at a loss for how to do it. ''Sweet.''

* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', the Quaddies are so named because they have four arms and no legs (they are genetically designed freefall dwellers.) Miles notes at one point how unfair it is that their troops can literally shoot and reload at the same time.
