* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has ''tons'', enough to spawn the ''Titan Legions'' GaidenGame:
** The Imperium refers to enormous walking war machines as Titans. Imperial Titans range in size from the 15-meter-tall Warhound Scout Titan to the gargantuan Imperator-class Titan, a 55-meter walking cathedral-fortress able to house a company of soldiers and sporting weapons rated against capital ships. Knights are smaller, one-man "mini-Titans" approximately nine meters tall, usually deployed in squadrons based on the feudal households of the Knight Worlds. Dreadnoughts are MiniMecha about four meters tall, in the Imperium's case piloted by a [[EmergencyTransformation mortally-wounded]] SpaceMarine's life-support sarcophagus.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' 40000}}'':
** The Imperium
has ''tons'', enough to spawn the ''Titan Legions'' GaidenGame:
** The
GaidenGame. While it has some elements of [[RealRobotGenre "realism"]] with how it's handled, like the rest of 40k, it runs on RuleOfCool.
*** That said, the
Imperium refers has two broad classes that their mechs fall under. The first is Knights, who come from the noble families of feudalistic worlds and have ties to enormous walking war machines the [[MachineWorship Adeptus Mechanicus]]. They serve as Titans. Imperial a minority part of the Imperium's military force, though there are Knights Errant roaming the galaxy, looking for other humans to help. Most Knight chassis are a humpbacked mech about 7 meters tall, though there are some rarer chassis that are up to a few meters taller. They typically have a gun, sometimes a melee weapon, on each arm, and a relatively tiny medium machine gun for support fire; and are crewed by one, maybe two pilots. Political associations aside, the main difference between Knights and Titans range is that Titans are (broadly speaking) larger and have access to more, bigger, and deadlier guns.
*** Then comes the Titans of the Adeptus Mechanicus, which is fully a splinter faction of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Unlike the Knights, these things are considered actual God Machines, and they get more guns the higher up you get on the scale. Their chassis ranges
in size from the 15-meter-tall Warhound Scout Titan to the gargantuan Imperator-class Titan, a 55-meter walking cathedral-fortress able to house a company of soldiers and sporting weapons rated against capital ships. Knights are smaller, one-man "mini-Titans" approximately nine meters tall, usually deployed And sometimes they get a few offshoots in squadrons based on the feudal households of the Knight Worlds. Dreadnoughts are process, either from a lost blueprint or after one too many retrofits.
*** The Imperium also has Dreadnoughts.
MiniMecha about four to about four-and-a-half meters tall, in the Imperium's case piloted by a [[EmergencyTransformation mortally-wounded]] SpaceMarine's life-support sarcophagus. The standard is the boxy Castraferrum chassis, which looks like an ornate metal crate with arms and legs. Then there's the taller and more humanoid Contemptor Dreadnought, which has the benefit of loosely resembling the Space Marine inside. There was also the five meter Leviathan Dreadnought, which was a heavily armoured beast designed for sieges and heavy assaults and originates from the Horus Heresy; but the exotic technologies involved and limited numbers built means that the secrets of its construction disappeared into history. There are few Space Marine Chapters that have any Contemptor Dreadnoughts, and even fewer that have Leviathans, and either one is rarely used if they're present.

* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' started all this when they called theirs Mobile Suits (humanoid mecha) and Mobile Armor (jet- or tank-like mecha).[[note]]The specific difference is that Mobile Suits take advantage of limb momentum to change their position in a weightless environment, while Mobile Armors do so largely through thrusters... though nowadays the difference is more in whether it's humanoid (MS) or not (MA)[[/note]] A "normal suit", if you're wondering, is a regular spacesuit. (And a "pilot suit" is the LatexSpaceSuit version, easier to move in and fit into cramped cockpits.).
