* Many ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' figures have oversized right arms or hands, including the six Toa Hordika (in TheMovie, these are even shown fused together with their weapons) and six original Piraka sets, Mantax from the Barraki series, and Hewkii from the Toa Mahri line (who also has a [[GatlingGood gatling gun]] built into his forearm). From the bigger toys, Sidorak has an enormous right hand with gripping claws, and Makuta Icarax has a rotating blade for a right hand. Lefties include Lewa and Tahu from the original Toa Mata line, and Matoro from the Toa Mahri.

* ''{{Transformers}}'' designs sometimes fall into this. For instance, in ''TransformersCybertron'', Leobreaker is capable of combining with Optimus Prime in the form of an oversized right arm. In the [[TransformersFilmSeries second live-action movie]], Megatron gets an upgraded form that includes a massive cannon on his right arm (and a slightly undersized left arm for emphasis).

* ''TheMoteInGodsEye'' features the Moties, an alien race with two small, dextrous arms on one side and a heavy, powerful arm on the other.
* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' Victarion gets something that probably qualifies here. While his left arm isn't any ''bigger'', it is completely functional and probably super strong, but looks like it's been thoroughly barbecued.

* In ''XamdLostMemories'', the titular shapeshifters have this as their most common distinguishing feature.

** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilDarksideChronicles'', G-Virus-infected William Birkin's first and second stage mutations give him an increasingly monstrous right arm before his third stage mutation balances him out.

* {{Space Marine}}s of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' named the PowerFist trope for a reason: they're basically lightsabres in punching form when it comes to enemy armour. [[TheMusketeer Since they also need to wield guns]], power fists are usually on their ''left'' arms instead.
** Also, Graevus of the Soul Drinkers. His right hand isn't clad in a power fist... because it's grown to about the same size as one. He has been known to use it to snap spines.

* ''{{Eberron}}'' has the Battlefist, a magic item attached to Warforged and Renegade Mastermakers[=/=]Self-Forged.
* ''{{Exalted}}'': An iconic [[DealWithTheDevil Infernal]] (who is basically a living mummy) has a massive lobster pincer for ''left'' hand. It's actually a demon melded into his body. The writeup for the artifact notes that it can shift into four different forms, one of which is more-or-less normal-looking, but the "honking big crab claw" look is most commonly seen.
