*** Generally speaking, all practitioners of the Anything Goes qualify: Genma (who taught Ranma) usually fights bare-handed but has a penchant for using improvised weapons and [[TalkingWithSigns the signs of his cursed form]]; Akane, who too prefers fighting bare-handed, has fought with all sort of weapons (usually samurai-style weapons) and has been revealed to carry ''bow and arrows'' on her person; Happosai has used his bare hands, his pipe, [[ImprovisedWeapons random objects]] and [[StuffBlowingUp bombs]]; and Soun Tendo will fight unarmed only if caught by surprise, otherwise he'll come out decked in ''full samurai armour'' and carrying a large number of swords, polearms and other samurai weapons.

** Ukyo uses [[WeaponOfChoice small okonomiyaki spatulas as both meelee and ranged weapons and a giant one as a melee weapon]] alongside cooking implements]].
** Mousse [[HyperspaceArsenal carries an insane amount of blunt, slashing and piercing weapons in his sleeves]] (alongside many other non-combat things, [[ImprovisedWeapons some of which he'll still use to fight]]), and can both throw them and use them in a melee.
** Kodachi Kuno is a master-level practitioner of Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics. As said above, her style requires to use (mostly) rhythmic gymnastics tools as weapons, and she's proficient enough she can easily hit her enemies with hoops, grab and throw people with her ribbon, masquerade a very hard stick as her ribbon, club an opponent in meelee by using ''a dozen clubs at once'', and so on. ''Then'' [[UpToEleven she gets dirty even for her style and this series]], whipping out clubs with retractable spikes, razor hoops, gas bombs, plain bombs...

* Also possible in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', though what you'd want a sword ''and'' a gravity hammer for... well, except for RuleOfCool. On the other hand, when dealing with lots of flood... Anyway, the hammer is more powerful but has a slower swing, while the sword is less powerful, at least on its basic swing, but can be used faster. The hammer is also more useful without using its shock powers, you can hit a foe with the butt of the hammer and still cause decent damage.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'': Talion carries a sword for direct combat and a dagger (actually the remains of his son's broken sword) for stealth kills. Also, when fighting with the sword, he can pull out the dagger to deliver a coup de grace against a downed enemy.

* Several units in ''TheBattleForWesnoth'' wield multiple melee weapons, usually with different damage types. The human Knight and it's upgraded forms, the Grand Knight and Paladin, use both a sword and a lance - the sword allowing for a regular, fairly reliable attack dealing blade damage, or anti-magic "arcane" damage in case of the Paladin, while the lance provides a special [[DeathOrGloryAttack "charge" attack]] during which the unit both deals and takes double damage, and does piercing damage. The Drake Clasher is another shining example, armed with a long [[BladeOnAStick spear]] and [[WolverineClaws "war talons"]], and additionally gaining a [[UseYourHead ramming attack]] upon leveling up into a Thrasher, to complete the trio of physical damage types - piercing, blade, and impact.
