* Left-handed guitarists have been a staple of music since the dawn of string instruments. We have Tony Iommi (BlackSabbath), Music/PaulMcCartney, Music/JimiHendrix, Sylvia Tyson, and Music/BillyRayCyrus. For openers.

* ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' has Nero in the fourth game, who is a lefty. Though, that most likely has more to do with the fact that his right hand is a demonic claw - making this an inversion. The new Dante of the AlternativeContinuity is ambidextrous but prefers his left hand. Contrasting classic Dante who was good with both hands, but generally preferred his right hand for Devil Arms and his left for guns.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros 4'' casts VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} as a lefty, due to his AmbidextrousSprite in his source series shooting with his far arm -- which, in a left-to-right platform game, was usually his left. In his Final Smash sequence, he summons protagonists from four other ''Mega Man'' series for a joint attack, and of them, only [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork MegaMan.EXE]] [[ShownTheirWork shoots with his right arm]].

* The Space Marine from ''Videogame/{{Doom}}'' uses his left hand for pistols and punching. That said, he uses two-handed guns like a righty would.

* Graham Aker of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' is also a left-hander, as evident with his AceCustom units.[[labelnote:Clarification]]Not counting the mass-production Union Flag he used when he first encountered the Exia, all of his suits have their primary weapons held by their left hands. As to the dual-wielding [[SuperPrototype Masurao and Susanowo]], the longer blades are always held by the left.[[/labelnote]]

* TiedupOnThePhone: One of the inevitable results of old-style telephone receivers, where the handset was permanently attached to the receiver by a coiled cord, was how quickly the connecting cord ceased to be a neatly organised smooth coil. It would inevitably tangle, snag, knot, loop back on itself, and tended to somehow double over on itself, until the connecting wire between handset and receiver was effectively half its original length. Anyone picking up the handset to such a phone would drag the whole thing up off its table and find it swinging in the air. Left-handed users soon found that the arrangement favoured right-handed people - both in the direction of coiling, and in the way the headset was meant to be returned to its rest with the connecting wire on the right-hand side. Any old-style phone regularly used by left-handed people would unravel its coils twice as fast (the natural tendency being for a left-hander to return the handset to the rest with the coil-connected end on the ''left''.) Any household with both left and right handed people would discover their shared phone suffered from Garden Hose Syndrome - it became an utter tangled mess very quickly.

* ''[[Literature/TheIcelandicSagas The Saga of the Sworn Brothers]]'': Thormod, a lefthander and "not a strong man", is able to kill the great warrior Thorgrim Troll with an axe borne in his left hand, and afterwards makes a poem about the deed which specifically mentions it was done left-handed. This suggests Thormod credits success to his left-handedness, because Thorgrim did not expect an attack from a man carrying a weapon in his left hand.

* FightingGame characters (particularly in 2D games) who fight with their back to the screen can be implied to be fighting southpaw, as typically characters will lead with the hand that correlates to the side of the screen they're on (so on player 1's side, the character will lead with their left hand and player 2 with their right, as long as they face the screen). Examples include Lin from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 2000'' and Tusk from ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct 2''.
