Mehrunes Dagon, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince (read: god) Prince]] of destruction of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', [[OmnicidalManiac Destruction]], is always shown typically depicted as a massive BigRedDevil humanoid with four arms, each often holding a different weapon. Judging from his mythologies, he's apparently another Shiva-inspired example.He has attempted the takeover of Nirn/Mundus multiple times throughout history, serving as either the direct BigBad or the ManBehindTheMan in three games in the series.
** Morwha, the [[ScaryBlackMan Yokudan/Redguard]] aspect of Mara, the Aedric Divine [[LoveGoddess Goddess of Love]], is depicted with four arms so that she can "[[{{Polyamory}} grab more husbands]]". Otherwise downplayed because she isn't particularly malevolent.

So, you've got a character that you want to show is really dangerous. You could give him/her the normal two arms or legs, but that's just not enough. Maybe you could replace one of those arms with a [[ArmCannon really big gun]], or a [[{{BFS}} sword]], or have it [[ShapeshifterWeapon transform into something else]].

** In ''Literature/CiaphasCain: For the Emperor'', there is a plot point related to this trope. A tau ambassador is assassinated in the middle of a party and no-one can see who the shooter was, especially when everyone draws weapons in the ensuing confusion. [[spoiler: It turns out to be the person who seemed one of the least likely, Governor Grice, because he's secretly a tyranid mutant and his shapeless clothes hide not a flabby body but an extra arm easily capable of coming out to fire a gun and withdrawing back, leaving his other two hands innocently empty.]]

** Techno-magos Darioq, from the ''Literature/WordBearers'' novel ''Dark Apostle'', has four heavy weapons (two heavy bolters and 2 plasma cannons), multiple heavy melee weapons, and around 10 mechadendrites. Over the course of the novel, he rips off a Chaos Terminator's arms and cuts him in half. After being bathed in flames for several seconds.
** Sulphus, the Techmarine from the ''Deathwatch'' novel ''Warrior Coven'', has three mechanical arms and one organic one. These arms allow him to fly a speeder and use the turret at the same time as well as firing his bolter, something that would normally require three people. At one point, he uses two of his arms to hold on to a spinning Talos and the other two to rip an armour plate off. He then jumps inside, blows it up and does a walking out through the flames sequence like in the first Terminator



* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** Adeptus Mechanicus Techpriests have "mechadendrites" attached to them, but they normally are not very badass. Although that depends entirely what part of the Adeptus you meet. There's your garden variety cog-head and then there's the Mechanicus Secutor who tends to be a walking tank with several gun mechadendrites modified to not carry holdout laspistols but flamethrowers...
*** [[Literature/WordBearers Techno-magos Darioq]] was a perfect example. He weighed four tons, had four heavy weapons (two heavy bolters and 2 plasma cannons), multiple heavy melee weapons, and around 10 mechadendrites. In the course of the novel ''Dark Apostle'', he rips off a Chaos Terminator's arms and cuts him in half. After being bathed in flames for several seconds.

He then jumps inside, blows it up and does a walking out through the flames sequence like in the first Terminator.
** Greater Daemons of Slaanesh (Keepers of Secrets, as they're known) have two regular arms (and often carry large swords or whips) and two arms with huge pincers. The Masque of Slaanesh is a Daemonette special character with three arms (one normal, one small pincer arm and one large pincer arm). Some of the parts in the current Chaos Spawn kit have things like arms splitting into several limbs or big spiky tentacles coming off the back. But then, this is Chaos, of course there is.
** Every Tyranid has six limbs. Some have two pairs of legs, some have six limbs that aren't much use for more than moving. The rest have two (or six) pairs of arms. And both pairs are either blades designed to rip you apart or holding guns made to shoot small organisms at you (which proceed to rip you apart).
** The ultimate enforced of this trope is the Swarmlord, the top tier tyranid, with 4 arm, equipped with utterly letal bonesaber, capable of deliver a devastating Curb-stomp to almost anyone in the galaxy.

** Dark Eldar Wracks and Grotesques (hideous Frankstenian monsters, except they're made when the various parts are ''still alive and conscious'')tend to have any number of limbs, some with incorporated weapons. Their creators, the Haemonculi, like to do this to themselves too. To a lesser extent, Dark Eldar Scourges are particularly brave/stupid individuals who have paid a Haemonculus to make them capable of flight via surgical modifications to hollow wings and add wings and flight muscles.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy Battles'' Slaanesh is fond of this (if PowerPerversionPotential can be applied to it, rest assured there's a champion of Slaanesh who has it). His Greater daemons have this and his heralds can be given it.

** The Chaos Gods from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' and their [[GaidenGame spinoffs]] often gift their Daemonic and moral followers with extra limbs, that often end with [[PowerPincer powerful claws]], [[CombatTentacles slithering tentacles]] or some other form of combat orientated mutation. Slaanesh, [[PowerPerversionPotential god of pleasure and excess]], and Tzeentch, god of magic and mutation, are particularly fond of this mutation.

* 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.
