Whatever the weapon, you'll probably see a lot of Flynning and Slice-and-Dice Swordsmanship in the choreography.
A Double Weapon is a variation of dual-wielding in which the character wields two weapons that are attached together.
In the FLCL climax, Naota dual wields two guitars in the final fight with Haruko after absorbing Atmosk's power.
In the Dragon Ball Z film Dead Zone, two of Garlic Jr.'s minions, Nicky and Ginger, are shown pulling two katana out of their own bodies. Near the end of the series, Gino Weinberg's Transforming Mecha Tristan is upgraded to the Tristan Divider, and its main weapons include a pair of swords that used to be Bismarck Waldstein's mecha Galahad's BFS.
Rolo's prototype Vincent Knightmare had a pair of these that could combine into a double-bladed spear. Amuro Ray from the original Mobile Suit Gundam, who would use both the Gundam's beam sabers on occasion. From Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Haman Khan and her Quebley often did this as well, mostly because the Quebley had no other equipment that required hands as it had no shield and all its other weapons were built in (or free-floating) so there was no loss in doing so. In Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Kira Yamato in the Freedom Gundam tends to dual wield his beam sabers when facing stronger opponents albeit at the cost of abandoning his shield. Setsuna does this all the time in his Exia (which actually has seven swords, but with only two arms it can't use them all at once). Mobile Suit Gundam AGE: AGE's Asemu Asuno dual wields beam sabers as his favored combat style, against his father Flit's rifle in one hand and saber in the other, and his son Kio's using a two handed rifle.
Unsurprisingly, the Mazinger series were the ones introduced this trope in Humongous Mecha anime. Duke Fleed from UFO Robo Grendizer also dual wielded using the twin scythes of his Humongous Mecha, although usually he joined them to form the Double Harken, a double-edged Sinister Scythe. Getter Robo: Getter Robo G's Getter Dragon form dual-wields battleaxesGetter Tomahawks for the Double Getter Tomahawk attack. The anime of Murder Princess often has the titular character dual-wielding a katana and a dagger.
And for some strange reason, the titular protagonist of Monster Princess does lots of this too. In the second season of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Fate's Bardiche was upgraded into Bardiche Assault and gained the Zamber Form, a BFS. Later, her Stalker With A Crush Mitsuru Tsuwabuki "borrows" said sword and dagger in his Black Rose duel. Not long after meeting Zoro, and long before Zoro's nontuple-wielding, Captain Kuro is seen wearing gloves with katanas on each finger. Hatchan (an octopus fishman, meaning he has two legs and six arms to match an octopus's eight tentacles) uses six swords at once. CP9 member Kaku uses two swords, and thanks to a special technique his legs act like blades making a total of four. Flower Sword Vista of Whitebeard's crew is notable for actually using just two swords, not three or six.
It's so absurd and unpredictable that even the Sharingan can't properly predict every attack.
Sayaka Miki of Puella Magi Madoka Magica has a moment of this with her swords in episode 6.
Midori from Mai-Otome carries a pair of swords which she draws from a single sheath (which really shouldn't work given how long they are◊. Undine of the Twin Swords from Claymore is (of course) well known for the massive physical power that lets her use two standard issue BFS' at once. One of the myriad forms of the Ten Commandments in Groove Adventure Rave is Blue Crimson, which splits the weapon into two different swords: one of fire and one of ice.


Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann wields two Giga Drill Breakers in the final battle against the Anti-Spirals. In the second movie, The Lights in the Sky Are Stars, Viral's Tengen Toppa Gunmen, Tengen Toppa Enki Durga wields eleven swords (and a club). In the climax of the Record of Lodoss War OAV, Parn dual-wields the Holy Sword of Valis and the Demon Sword Soulcrusher to shatter Kardis' barrier, in which Deedlit was imprisoned. Some of the weapons provided by the Gold Cloth of Libra in Saint Seiya, such as the tonfas and the nunchaku, are meant to be dual-wielded. Lobomon dual wields light sabers (which can be combined to one two bladed lightsaber darth maul style) and some other sword wielding digimon like Karatenmon, Dinohumon, Yasiamon, Zanbamon and many others.
In the Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals manga, King Zephiel dual-wields the BFG Exaccus and the Infinity+1 Sword Sword of Seals!! The Hidden Weapons Master Mousse keeps a rather improbable number of weapons (bladed, blunt, piercing, etc.) hidden within his clothing and all over his body. Ukyo uses both her large spatula and smaller spatulas at one time, though the smaller ones can double as projectile attacks.
In GUN?SWORD, Dann of Thursday uses a massive katana with a detachable knife (or presumably a wakizashi) attached to the reverse side.
If the character has one hand dominant, he might wield a long weapon in one hand and a shorter weapon in his off-hand, such as a classic rapier and dagger pairing.
It's unknown whether or not Sansho had the same ability, as Piccolo killed him before he would have had the chance. Except that one of them, the Sword That Flies Higher Than Any, really flies around and incepts attacks.
Between them, Kyoraku is the only shinigami that dual-wields even when his zanpakuto is sealed due to the fact that it seals into the form of two swords.
His perhaps most famous instance of doing so is during his duel with Zeon commander M'Quve in the Texas colony.
Paptimus Scirocco's The O is also notable in that it uses four arms in order to wield four sabers at once (two regular arms and two smaller retractable ones in its skirt armor).
The redesigned version in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz has even bigger heat shotels, to the point that they're probably as heavy as Sandrock itself. Like the Exia, it can dual-wield beam swords but also can dual-wield a pair of similar sized solid swords that also act as a pair of laser rifles. It has three Seraphim units attached to its back, all of which are capable of fighting independently.
After he upgrades to the Double Bullet he gets beam sabers installed in the shoulders allowing him to quadruple wield. Also, Servant Berserker (The Atoner Lancelot) manages to ward off Gilgamesh's "Gate of Babylon" using a spear in one hand and a sword in the other. By the third season, it has the ability to separate it into two halves, effectively twin longswords.
This being anime, of course, it's always quite effective, as absurd as it would be in real life.
Combined with his incredible speed, he attempts to defeat Luffy, killing off or severely wounding most of his own crew, in order to carry out his master plan. He is a very strong swordfighter, able to be recognized by Mihawk, the strongest swordsman in the world, who said that among swordsmen only a idiot wouldn't be familiar with Vista. Sometimes he carries multiple extra swords, so that he can keep dual-wielding even if one or more of his swords get broken. In her case however it's totally justified; tonfa, being both offensive and defensive armaments, are one of those weapons which are intended to be dual-wielded even in real life. Upon her demise, Deneve took up her blade and spent the Time Skip learning to bulk herself up to pull the same trick.


Interestingly enough, the hero finds it somewhat difficult to use because he's right-handed. Conservation of Ninjutsu never really comes up, but Kambei manages to defeat him (or at least hold him off) using his scabbard as an extra parrying weapon.
Later, he pilots a mech that quadruple-wields them, and LATER, he gives the Tengen Toppa form of Gurren Lagann the ability to create and dual-wield katanas.
The Andromeda Cloth also wields the Andromeda Chain — one type of chain on each arm, and Shun can whip them out simultaneously to attack, unless the enemy requires more thoughtful tactics. This is made notably less impressive when the soon-to-be-lancer starts quad wielding (and even then it has another sixteen swords to rely on), then there's Tsubaki-hime, that can dual wield chainsaws. It even has a special attack for each of them — Strawberry Death for the red one, and Blue Hawaiian Death for the blue one.
A favorite intimidation tactic consists of him whipping up both his arms and displaying a frightening amount of blades from his giant sleeves, making it look like the swords and knives are his actual hands.
These demonstrate her prodigious strength, as they are known to be unbelievably heavy and unwieldy, yet she swings them around like they were nothing. Van uses it occasionally to take on multiple enemies, while a twin-bladed mauling (Daitou Renzoku Kougeki, or Greatsword Multiple Attack) is one of Dann's attacks in Super Robot Wars K. Apparently Musashi is the only character to dual-wield in the manga because he's so strong that dividing his strength between the two swords isn't a problem, as he proves when he uses a one-handed sword to break a katana held in both hands.
Two small weapons is also pretty common, with the idea that smaller, nimbler weapons won't get tangled up with each other.
When attached to Seravee, they can each pull out two arms, meaning that Seravee can wield a total of 10 beam sabers at once. Other dual-wielders in the series include Teana with energy daggers, Schach with tonfas, and Deed with energy swords. It goes even farther, however, with Zoro eventually learning to nonuple-wield — that is, use nine swords at once, or at least create the appearance of this.
In both that series and Mai-HiME, she often uses a bow and arrows.) This seems to be some kind of Church Militant ability, as all three characters are associated with the Catholic Church (notably, the second two are members of the same organization, though vastly different rank). This is also parodied in an omake, where King Bradley wields five sabers at once: one in each hand, one in each ear, and one in his ass. Somehow, they never become entangled with one another, and Shun can wield them easily despite being the youngest, wispiest Saint ever. Adding on to this, Yamamoto Takeshi's box weapon is in possession of three swords, carried on it's back. A character might be concerned only with offence, and therefore decides that he wants to kill with both hands rather than just one. However, some characters will dual-wield long weapons, such as swords or axes, which is generally portrayed as quite a feat. When it does show up, the second blade tends to be used as an alternative to a shield, rather than as a weapon.
More tactical characters might typically use their off-handed weapon for blocking or tricky counter-attacks. A Bifurcated Weapon might allow the character to switch between one- and two-weapon styles on the fly. On the extreme end of the scale, a character might wield a One-Handed Zweihander in each hand!
