''The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot'' (1995) began as Creator/FrankMiller's and Creator/GeofDarrow's much more family friendly collaboration after the energetically demented ''Hard Boiled''. The Comic was a big over the top tribute to SilverAge comics, ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' and ''Manga/AstroBoy''. The story is about a giant, primordial monster unleashed upon Tokyo which the military is unable to defeat; subsequently the government is forced to send the newly developed and inexperienced Rusty the [[RobotKid Boy Robot]] in to try and neutralize the threat. Unfortunately he is also overwhelmed by the monster and the government calls on the aid of their [[AmericaSavesTheDay American allies]] who send in Big Guy, a bigass humanoid robot, with two fists and [[MoreDakka a whole lot of guns]]. The comic was adapted into a [[WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot cartoon]] that ran from 1999 to 2000.

* NighInvulnerability: The monster ''cannot'' be destroyed through [[ImmuneToBullets conventional weaponry]]. Its [[HealingFactor regeneration abilities]] are too great. Even [[BoomHeadshot blowing up its head]] does nothing. Only a direct-hit from a [[TheDeadliestMushroom nuclear warhead]] will atomize the demon, preventing its return.

** Also, what the demon monster vows to do to the pilot of Big Guy [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu after he rebukes him as his god]], by imprisoning him within an agonizing malformed shell of his own robotic suit for all eternity. Adverted, [[LifeOrLimbDecision after he severs off his own infection arm and vanquishes the malevolent abomination]].
