* Techpriests in the ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' universe can do that.

**
Techpriests in the ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' universe often add an extra limb that's practically an industrial tool on a robotic arm. They often add on tentacle-like mechandendrites which can do that.serve many roles, including manipulation. And then with their practically unlimited options for body modification, they can take on more traditional takes of this trope.
** When it comes to Chaos and natural mutations, extra limbs isn't common, but it's far from unheard of.

It is rarely explained how users of this trope have the coordination to pull all this off in the first place, since normal humans typically lack the skill to perform two different tasks with their hands. Justified in the case of extremely non-human entities which may have evolved to use their excess limbs in many different tasks at once with ease.
