''In the Criminal Justice System, HumongousMecha-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Tokyo, the dedicated officers who deal with these vicious felonies are an [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits elite squad]] known as the Special Vehicles Unit. [[Series/LawAndOrder These are their stories]].''

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The climax of the second movie takes place in an aqueduct big enough for Second Section's Ingrams to walk upright inside it, and is almost wide enough for two of them to stand side by side.



* BattleDiscretionShot: In ''Patlabor 2'', after shooting their way past the robot tanks in the tunnels, Nagumo enters an elevator in her labor [[OhCrap only to find another robot tank about to open fire at point-blank range]]. Nagumo stomps towards it screaming, "GET OUT OF MY WAY!" Cut to the elevator rising to the surface carrying Nagumo's totaled labor, whereupon she hits the eject and walks the rest of the way.

* GiantWallOfWateryDoom: Izumi barely escapes one of these in the second movie when the tunnel the protagonists are fighting in is flooded.

** The members of Division 2 are very similar to the characters from ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' in various ways.
** A redheaded new recruit of an armored police division? Are we talking about [[Anime/DominionTankPolice Leona Ozaki]], or her future equivalent, Noa Izumi? Similarly, Noa fusses over her labor, Alphonse, just as Leona fawn over her tank, Bonaparte.

** WarForFunAndProfit is neither fun nor profitable. Schaft Enterprises makes an attempt to pit one of their military prototypes against the police's Ingram in pursuit of combat data. What followed was ridiculously stupid, as the only people they could find willing to do such a ridiculously stupid thing were some deadbeat stoner BombThrowingAnarchists -- who fled the scene once they ''realized'' how ridiculously stupid the whole thing was.

Simply replace Brocken and Griffon with Baccus and Black Ox and the whole thing should be clearer.[[/note]]
