    Default Double-Beam Sword Gundam?

    Hi! I'm new here. I saw a Gundam wielding double beam swords which it got from its back and fought with these like a samurai. Which Gundam is it? From what Gundam series? Are there other Gundams with double beam swords as its weapons?

    I would like to know what you count as "double"

    Do you mean wielding 2 Beam Sabres at once like this:

    or using a dual bladed sabre like this:

    +
    ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



    2 Beam Sabre Style:

    Any Gundam unit has 2 Sabres by default and thus can use this style. Wether they actually do, however, depends on the style of the pilot. Pilots insisting on orthodoxe styles or unproficient (its very hard to fight with dual wield in swordfights, having to use it in a Gundam adds to difficulty) will not use this style, while the most skilled or berserked pilots often do.

    -The most prominent frequently depicted user of this style is often Amuro Ray, the 1st Gundam pilot while being in the Gundam (RX-78-2, the 1st Gundam), as seen in the video above although actually he is meant to fight with Sword and Shield style.

    -His rival, Char Aznable dual wields in the Sazabi

    -Haman Karn performs a twin blade attack as finale on Judau's ZZ Gundam

    -Siegfried Wedner berserks with dual wield when he activates Assault Mode of his unit, the longer he stays in it the more likely the speed of his own unit will crush himself, so goes all out.

    -Strike Noire's typical style is with dual wielding either beam gund or swords.

    -Seabrook Arno does not only Dual Wield, he at times attacks his opponents with up to a total of 6 blades: the Zanbuster, 2 Beam Zanbers, 2 Heat Daggers and a heel blade which he consequnelty stabs into the opponent.

    -Kira Yamato sometimes dual wields. Especially in Strike Gundam


    Dual Bladed sabres:

    -Though not typically known for it, Amuro Ray is also proficient with this style. He even does it while surfing!

    -Units related to the gelgoog also often feature such a weapon.

    -Sword Impulse gundam (2nd video) uses this style most of the time.

    -Athrun Zala often combines his 2 beam sabres to fight in this style.

    Wow! You really know alot about Gundams. I'm impressed.

    I meant the 1st one, 2 beam swords at once. Actually, that was the video I saw. So the Gundam using 2 beam swords in the video is the RX-78-2 piloted by Amuro Ray? I also saw a Gundam Seed video with a Red Gundam using 2 beam swords at once also. Which Gundam is this?

    Also, does the Sword Impulse Gundam on the 2nd video also fight with the '2 swords at once' style? and not Dual-bladed style. Meaning are there time that the Sword Impulse Gundam does not connect his swords together?

    Yes, the video shows Amuro Ray in the Gundam (yes, its called "the Gundam" because its the 1st and original one), the SEED one is Athrun Zala, most likely piloting Justice or Infinite Justice though he tends to connect the sabres.

    Sword Impulse theoretically could fight without connecting, but those are ant-ship swords that are usually wielded with 2hands holding to stabilize (they are heavy), so the connected style is more typical as it gives more balance.
