* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', Ezio can use both a one-handed sword or bludgeon and his hidden gun together in combat, unlike in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII 2]]'' where they were separate. A variant is using a Short Blade together with throwing knives. Swiss Guards, the most EliteMook, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPqL2QEWnkY pack both a pistol and a sword]].
** From Brotherhood onward, this has become a standard for both protagonists and enemies. While pistols make for potent weapons, their drawback comes from the fact that they are matchlock and therefore slow to reload unless you're carrying a second gun.

* The traditional song "Froggy Went a Courtin'", recorded by hundreds of people including BobDylan and Bruce Springsteen, says the title character rides with "a sword and pistol by his side". Alright, I admit, there's no mention in the song of either of these being used much less simultaneously, but still the image of an anthropomorphic frog with a sword and pistol is pretty funny for a song that's OlderThanSteam.
