* Briefly shown in an ''Fanfic/OversaturatedWorld'' sidestory. Ditzy is outside her universe and sees Sunset Shimmer holding the thing together with twelve arms, while using an additional four to heal the cracks in reality. Sunset also grows an additional head just to talk to her without getting distracted.

Please note this has surprisingly little to do with ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask, if you're thinking about wielding weapons with many arms you [[RequiredSecondaryPowers still need some form]] of Multiarmed Multitasking; it just belongs in MultiArmedAndDangerous. If your extra limbs are for walking, they belong in SpiderLimbs.

SpiderLimbs or possibly HandyFeet.

Also note that some cases of Multitasking may be considered more {{Heroic|Ambidexterity}} than others.

* Kamaji in ''SpiritedAway'' operates the bathhouse boiler room. He has six spidery arms, which he uses to multitask: reaching into the hundreds of herb cabinets, pouring boiling water, grinding potions with his yagen (related to a mortar a pestle, but using a wheel in a narrow trough) and responding to wooden tags on ropes signalling requests from the bathhouse above.
* ''FrankenFran'' oftentimes attaches her head to a special multi-armed body in order to perform particularly complex surgery.

* Briareos Hecatonchires of ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'' fame possesses a cyborg body that includes the ability to control more limbs then he actually has, to the point of apparently running a aircraft carrier by himself, but is mostly shown using multiple guns in his [[MiniMecha Landmate]].
