** In-game, the concept of the Customizable HQ is this for the characters; prior to 4th edition all special characters required your opponent's explicit permission to use and you were encouraged to use the generic HQ to build someone to represent you on the battlefield. 7th Edition is trying to return to this trend by giving a lot more customization to the generic HQs and restricting some of the utility of named characters. Emphasis on ''trying'', as a lot of the options are just flat out better than others, leaving players [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome to just choose the best loadout possible]], which isn't exactly hard to find.

* As with most MechaGenre tropes, subverted by Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS. Chirico does spend extensive time customizing a couple of the ''[[MadeOfExplodium many]]'' Scope Dogs he uses over the course of the series, but it rarely increases their survivability. During the first arc, he customizes a junked AT by welding on [[MoreDakka many guns]], with his friend painting on the iconic [[RedRightHand Red Shoulder]] to intimdate their opponents. A later arc has him rewriting another Scope Dog's battle computer in order to keep up with a next-gen AT model.

* Though there are no mecha in the setting, tanks in ''Literature/TheSolsticeWar'' seem to be borrowing from this trope. Noel's Strike Ranger tank was a prototype designed to cater to his tastes in tanks.

* The main girls of ''InfiniteStratos'' have their [[PoweredArmor IS Suits]] customized to their fighting style, but they sometimes border on limited-production models, or outright {{Super Prototype}}s (Houki's ''Akatsubaki'' being the latter) Only Charlotte's ''Rafale Revive Custom II'' qualifies squarely for the trope, as it is based on a technically obsolete, 2nd-generation frame (everyone else's suits are 3rd-generation); she has added several modifications (such as being able to dual-wield guns and being able to store and summon more weapons) and had it repainted orange (in contrast to the green on the frame which it was based on), which comes as a great surprise to her opponents (much like her true gender initially being a secret).

* The main girls of ''InfiniteStratos'' have their [[PoweredArmor IS Suits]] customized to their fighting style. For example, Houki's IS takes advantage of her life-long kendo training, being a high-speed melee-focused suit wielding a katana. Charlotte's IS Suit is technically obsolete, due to being 2nd-generation (everyone else's Suits are 3rd-generation), but she's added several modifications (such as being able to dual-wield guns and being able to store and summon more weapons), which comes as a great surprise to her opponents (much like her true gender initially being a secret).

** Naturally, this shows up in abundance in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans.'' Most of Tekkadan's mobile suits are customized versions of captured enemy units, some of which were [[UpToEleven already customized to begin with]]. Of particular note is the [[WhatAPieceOfJunk Ryusei-Go]]; with its [[RealMenWearPink salmon-pink]] paint job and shark motif, the only way you'd be able to tell that it used to be a lowly mass-production [[MookMobile Graze]] is reading the engine's energy signature. For Gjallarhorn otherwise, they have the EB-05s Schwalbe Graze, which is a SuperPrototype itself in contrast to the standard EB-06 Graze. And then there is Graze Ein, which is [[spoiler: ''[[ManInTheMachine the pilot himself]]'' becomes an AceCustom.]]

** Then there's [[Anime/Macross7 Nekki Basara's VF-19 Fire Valkyrie]] which pushes the pilot-specific customization UpToEleven. Beyond the bright red paint job and a different head with a SuperRobot style face sculpted on it, it's entirely geared torwards spreading ThePowerOfRock instead of actually fighting (its gun shoots Speaker Pods that blare Basara's music inside all mechs he hits instead of live ammo, has speakers inside its shoulders for atmospheric musical broadcast, and its only conventional weapons are internal missiles that Basara does his best to never need to use), [[UnusualUserInterface oh and it's piloted by playing a guitar]]. Later on Mylene and the rest of Fire Bomber also get their own custom [=VFs=] made in a similar vein.
