* 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 right-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.]]

* WordOfGod says Phineas from WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb is left-handed. He appears to be ambidextrous, as he can write and play various instruments with both hands. However, he does seem to lead more with his left hand than his right, as he plays a left-handed drum set, uses left-handed tools, and bats left-handed in baseball.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'' episode "To Mar a Stall," Fillmore notices the graffiti in the restroom stalls is written from right to left--that is, each letter is overlapped by the letter to its right. Because it was written using a permanent marker, Fillmore figures the vandal must be left-handed, as a lefty would write in this way to avoid smearing the graffiti and getting ink on their own hands. Sure enough, the culprit was [[spoiler:the class president presenting the grand opening of the new restrooms--the school newspaper's photo depicts her holding the scissors used to cut the ribbon at the ceremony with her left hand.]]



* Modern U.S. presidents from H.W. Bush to Obama are noted for this, with 3 out of 4 having a dominant left hand. Ronald Reagan is ambidextrous, and indicated he was naturally left-handed but forced to switch, making it 4 out of 5 if counting him. George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama are all lefties, while George W. Bush is righty. Most of the candidates, including the biggest ones, for the 2016 election are [[https://www.quora.com/Are-any-candidates-left-handed-this-presidential-season-2016 right-handed]].

Also notable in that a lot of candidates who ''didn't'' win the elections were also left-handed, most notably John [=McCain=] and Ross Perot (making the 1992 election the first time the top three candidates were all lefties).

* 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.

* At the beginning of ''U19'', a student is seen writing with his left hand, prompting the teacher to physically injure it as punishment, under the idea that a proper citizen must write with his right hand.
* In ''We never Learn!'', Furuhashi is always shown writing with her left hand, which reflects the popular stereotype of left-handed people being creative geniuses as she aces every humanities subject at her school.

* In ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'', [[TheRival Shiratorizawa High's]] team [[TheAce ace]] Ushijima Wakatoshi is left-handed, which is noted to give a particular advantage to spikes because most blockers orient themselves to a spiker's right. Flashbacks show how when he was young, his school attempted to "correct" his handedness, which his father (another avid volleyball player) insisted on them not doing.

* Orm, the main character from ''Literature/TheLongShips'', is left-handed as a result of rowing a starboard oar on a slave galley for five years. It is commented upon when he duels, that this makes shieldwork more difficult both for him and the right-handed man he's fighting.

* Probably the UrExample, Ehud Ben-Gera in the ''Literature/TheBible'' is left-handed. This becomes important when guards search for weapons only on his left thigh (where a right-handed person might conceal one), and this allows him to assassinate the king of Moab with the sword concealed on his right thigh.
