Only if they have Ambidextrous on them (or there's a Runner whose card
states differently. i.e. - Flatline using two pistols.)

OTH you can use two Hand Razors in combat. (This will be clearer in
2nd Run.)

Some cards might be able to affect him once he's turned and before he
can use his special to target a runner. Others in future expansions
might be able to keep a Runner from turning, and thus keep Banzai
(Yakuza Thug BTW) from using his special.

Also, if he was turned from a previous shadowrun and someone like Jade
kept him from unturning, he couldn't use his special. Or if Archie
McDeven turned Banzai before you had a chance to declare wanting to
use him, you wouldn't be able to use his special.

Anyways, that's some of the reasons...
