* Several ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' series, with ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' being the first installment to feature AnimalMecha. The most notable, of course is ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', a.k.a. ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. Aside from that airship that looks like a bird from ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger''.

* Several ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' series, with series. In adapting one into the other, sapient, ''talking'' mecha sometimes become more like giant animals (Abaranger into Dino Thunder and Go-Onger into RPM).
**
''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' being was the first installment to feature AnimalMecha. a full set of AnimalMecha, not counting that airship that looks like a bird from ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger''.

The most notable, recognizable PR examples are probably the Dinozords of course is ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', a.k.a. ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. Aside from that airship that looks like a bird from ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger''.

* Of course, ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' (which by then was already being adapted into ''Franchise/PowerRangers'') got into the act too, with ''Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman''/''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger''/''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' being prominent examples.
** The Guardian Beasts from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', sentient dinosaur mecha who combine into '''God'''. Their Dinozord counterparts were never treated as fully sentient.
** ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'' also has Dinosaur Mecha, the Bakuryuu...except this time, they're all Dinosaurs (well, ok, a few are just prehistoric reptilians, like pterasaurs and dimetrodons, but close enough), unlike ''Zyuranger'' (only the Triceratops and T-Rex are truly Dinosaurs). They're all intelligent, reasoning creatures and characters in their own right. Their [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder American counterparts]] are cybernetic animals.
*** What's weird is that rather than mecha, the Bakuryuu are said to be actual descendants of the dinosaurs (on an alternate Earth). Full-body cyborgs, maybe?
*** Meanwhile, the Wild Zords of ''Wild Force'' are the animal mecha protectors of the ancient kingdom of Animaria, with animal intelligence and then some - they're who chose the Rangers, and the Megazord from the GreatOffscreenWar 3,000 years ago is now "Animus, Lord of the Wild Zords," the ultimate authority above even Princess Shayla, who is this season's Zordon equivalent. You gotta wonder why ''they're'' metal and can [[CombiningMecha combine]].
