* Athena in ''Videogame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' carries a Xiphos energy blade as her melee weapon. Her aptly-named Xiphos tree is all about close-quarter damage. Unlike Zer0 however, her Gun-Kata skill gives her a flat damage bonus to guns while also giving her a buff to melee damage anytime she shoots an enemy.

* A fairly common weapon combination for all-rounder combatants in ''Manga/WorldTrigger'', who are skilled as both attackers and gunners. Notable examples are Shuji Miwa, Ai Kitora and the protagonist Osamu Mikumo, though he uses the [[MorphWeapon Raygust] as a shield more often than a sword.

Often [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in historical settings, since old-fashioned pistols were almost entirely single-shot and inaccurate enough to make it essentially pointless to use both hands. Once you'd "had your shot", a single-shot pistol became nothing more than an elaborate club or a tool for parrying blades, until you got the thirty-plus second respite required to reload. Early cap-and-ball revolvers increased the number of shots, but still took long enough to reload that carrying a blade could be useful. This is often seen with the SamuraiCowboy. GenreSavvy folk who could afford it would often carry a whole brace of extra guns to increase their firepower.

* During WW2 there was a British soldier by the name of [[JackChurchill Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming "Mad Jack" Churchill]].(Try saying that 5 times fast). He was notable for being a total [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/churchill.html badass]] who not only carried a pistol and [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/churchill4.jpg claybeg]] into battle, but also a longbow. When asked about his bizarre choice of weapons, Mad Jack replied, [[GoodOldWays "In my opinion, sir, any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed"]]. On one night he took 42 German prisoners, and captured a mortar position single-handedly, using only his broadsword. [[BunnyEarsLawyer He often went into battle playing the bagpipes.]] Some historical accounts make his sword a claymore instead of the basket-hilt claybeg. Let's hope this is true

** Starting in Season 3, Ezra seems to have adopted this as his signature style, used most prominently in the hallway fight in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsStepsIntoShadow "Steps Into Shadow"]] and in the space battle in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E20ZeroHour "Zero Hour"]].

* Sara Valestein in VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel uses sword and gun as her weapon of choice. Both of them are sold in one package instead of separately since the game has no right-left hand equipment system.
