  • Vishnu fits except for the being an animal part. – Jim Jun 4 '16 at 19:04

Tetrabrachius is a medical term for a person born with four arms (apparently it can happen from incomplete twinning) or for a four-armed monster. It's just Latin for four-armed, so I think it would work for you. You could specify a bipedal tetrabrachius or a tetrabrachial biped if you want to stress the two legs, but I don't think you need it. See http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/tetrabrachius
