** ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamThunderbolt'': A major part of the series's design aesthetics are the "sub-arms" which are crane like additions to the Mobile Suit back-pack. Their use show the major differences in design choices between the Federation and Zeon: Federation suits use their sub-arms for defense (having them hold the shields while the MS's main arms use the weapons) while the Zeon suits use them for offense (often the sub-arms weild guns or are used for quick reloads or weapon switching).

** It was also useful with more primitive weapons since they could use their lower arms to hold up a shield while wielding a pike with their upper limbs. Similarly when equipped with simple breech-loading rifles they were able to reload with two arms while holding the rifle in the others.

* Four arms are a recurring element with ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'' villains. There's Samukai, the Skullkin general in the first season, Stone Army General Kozu in the third season, Nadakhan and the Giant Stone Warrior in the sixth season, and Mr. E in the eighth season. Long-running antagonist Lord Garmadon gains an extra set of arms for a time in the third season, and this is referenced in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGONinjagoMovie'', where these are a feature he's had since he became Lord Garmadon.

This tendency is because each line the villain was featured in had a MacGuffin corresponding to each of the four main ninja, and so having a four-armed villain poses the threat of them wielding all of them at once.

** General Grievous has arms that can both split in two. He's a cyborg, so it kind of makes sense. In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' he could hold lightsabers with his feet, too. So theoretically he could use 5 lightsabers at once (one foot would still be needed to stand on). In Legends Grievous had repulsorlift installed in his feet so that he could float and use his feet as hands, thus allowing him to Sextuple wield Lightsabers
