"I reckon that's the real reason we were trained to ambidextrous. To allow for those or'diniise in Procurement."
Clone commando "Atin"[src]

Ambidexterity was the state of being equally adept in the use of both left and right appendages in humanoid species. The clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic were trained to be able to wield their issued blasters ambidextrously.[1] All members of the Yevetha species were ambidextrous, and Ruurians were identically proficient with their two largest appendages.[2]

Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas was able to wield his staff ambidextrously. Other notable examples in the Jedi Order included Weapon Masters Thon and Anoon Bondara, Battlemaster Kyle Katarn,[3] Quinlan Vos, Mace Windu, Depa Billaba,[4][5] Aayla Secura and Grand Master Luke Skywalker.[6] Dark side individuals also inherited this skill, such as Dark Jedi Xanatos,[7][8] Aurra Sing,[9] Tol Skorr, and Sora Bulq;[10] Sith Lords Exar Kun,[11] Scourge,[12] Darth Maul,[13][14] Darth Tyranus,[15] Savage Opress,[16] Sith Tyro Vestara Khai,[17] Darth Talon, Darth Maladi,[18] and Dark Lady of the Sith, Lumiya.[source?]

Ambidexterity could also be applied by droids, such as C-3PO.[19] The Morgukai had been known to be ambidextrous; one such member was Ma'kis'shaalas, who defected to the Jedi.[20]

This quality was present in species with more than two hands, such as the Codru-Ji, Morseerians, Noehons, Troig and Xexto. In those cases, it was referred to as multidexterity.[2]
