* Actor BruceWillis is left handed, thus so is John [=McClane=], the main character in the ''Film/DieHard'' franchise. However, in the movie ''Film/SinCity'', Willis wielded his gun right handed to accurately depict the character of John Hartigan, who was right handed in the original comic books.

And in ''Film/TheSixthSense'' he writes right-handed[[note]]It's easlily spotted that he's not naturally left-handed because when he draws a circle, he draws it clockwise, like most left-handed people, instead of the for right-handed people common anti-clockwise.[[/note]], because a close-up of his left hand would [[spoiler: have shown he isn't wearing his wedding ring and thus given away a clue to the audience that he's dead.]]

* Lukas from ''Webcomic/{{DNA}}'' prefers to draw with his left hand, and in the original version of Mud he makes a comment wondering why everybody always wants him to draw with his right.

* On the cooking competition show ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'', situational southpaw conditions occasionally pop up. In most cases, right-hand-dominant chefs will be forced to cook left-handed for the duration of a challenge. This results from reduced finger mobility on the right hand or, in more undesirable cases, being forbidden from using the right hand at all. (These conditions also apply to left-hand-dominant chefs who are forced to do most of their tasks right-handed.)
** Additionally, one implement is a "Black and White" table. Unlike the hand-swap handicaps, the Black and White table requires the person using it to perform the same action with both the left hand and right hand at the same time.

Added DiffLines:

* In the film adaptation of ''TokillAMockingbird'', Bob Ewell is stated to be left-handed rather than ambidextrous as in the book. This makes the fact that he beat his daughter, Mayella, even more obvious.

Added DiffLines:

* ''AceAttorney'':
** All of Phoenix Wright's animations in court use his left hand, be if for pointing, rubbing his chin, or touching the back of his head.
** In case 1 of the second game, the victim, Dustin Prince, was a lefty, which becomes a plot point when it is pointed out that, even though he appears to have wrote the name of the killer in the sand, he used his right instead of his left.

Added DiffLines:

** Nappa is shown performing a number of blasts with his left hand, which he also uses to deflect Gohan's Masenko. He performs a number of other blasts with his right hand however (in particular, his SignatureMove, the Volcano Explosion, is always performed with his right hand), so he could be ambidextrous.

* Swordplay. In general you are encouraged to fight from your good side for the obvious advantages in free fights (but also because it is a pain to fight from your weak side - or to re-train your good side when you started learning on the wrong side). Once you get used to how to attack a right handed opponent on his left (vulnerable) shoulder when your opening position has the sword on your left shoulder it is no big deal anymore. (However most lefties also learn to do at least the basic moves also from the right side. Which is of high advantage when your opponent finally got used to you being a leftie and adjusts his attacks so you can attack him from the right. The other main advantage in general is that due to most people being right-handed, both lefties and righties primarily train to fight against righties. Matt Easton of WebVideo/ScholaGladiatoria, who is right handed, actually turns this to his advantage in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8XIDdPRx04 this video]].
** This trope also applies to fencing; lefties are MUCH harder to hit if you're used to fighting righties due to the fact that you have to hit the opposite side of their body. In [[DuelingScar academic fencing]], normally only one side of the face is a legal hit zone. In the rare cases of left-right matchups, both sides are exposed which greatly increases the risk of getting hit for the right-handed fencer, since he is often not trained against southpaws.
