* Bun-bun of ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'' attaches switchblades to the sides of his front paws on his spacesuit in "The Heavens and the Earth" to fight in zero-g. It doesn't work, because his main opponent holds him at bay by putting a hand against his helmet, and the suit lacks the mobility for him to do anything from there.


* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Fox uses weapons that encase his hands and attach at his wrists. The blades are so long they extend backwards from his wrist to end somewhere behind his elbows.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' uses a broad-bladed variation that makes the blade look like a dagger. While subtlety is blown (the blade is worn ''over'' the clothes), it is also very useful for open combat. They still use two of them.
** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity'' goes back to one blade, but now it has a mini crossbow attached to it; the new moniker is "Phantom Blade".
** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' brings back the dual blades, and now they have a hook attached to propel the user on buildings and make impromptu zip-lines.

Added DiffLines:

* Yakumo's WeaponOfChoice from ''Manga/SazanEyes'' is a double-edged dagger blade hidden in his right gauntlet, which he's seen using starting from the second part of the story. In the fourth one, Trinetra, he's seemingly upgraded the blade using a blade inscribed with the Triclops's emblem which allows him to access the dimensional gates of Kun Lun. To really drive the point home, when Amara merges with his arm, he takes the form of a large wrist-mounted sword when Yakumo needs to fight.

Near the end, he retracts the blades back into his sleeves when forced to perform a different action.
