* ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland}}'' has the Scorpitron, a massive scorpion tank with a cannon in it's stinger that deals 9d6 points of damage (that is 9-54) and a ton of armor to protect it. Any unprepared team will be torn apart in a few turns. ''Old World Blues'' robo-scorpions are one big ShoutOut to this boss.

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas: Old World Blues'' has Dr. Mobius and his fearsome Robo-Scorpions! The biggest is the [[spoiler:X-42 giant robo-scorpion, which is so big that it can't leave the facility where it was built. It couldn't even hold a charge even if it did.]]

*** In the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries'' there's no difference between a robot shaped like a dude and a robot shaped like a razor-sharp feline CyberCyclops, and ''don't'' think the only variation we see is two legs versus four. The many non-standard designs seen in ''Revenge of the Fallen'' especially brings the ''alien'' part of "alien robot" to the forefront like no other TF property before or since.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' features the Divine Beasts, a set of four giant {{Magitek}} elemental mecha designed to aid the hero in fighting Ganon. They are Vah Rutah (elephant, power over water); Vah Rudania (salamander, power over fire); Vah Medoh (bird, power over wind); and Vah Naboris (camel, power over lightning). Unfortunately, the last time they were used, Ganon's evil took control of them and turned them against Hyrule. Link has to find a way to purify them so they can be used properly this time around.

* ''VideoGame/{{Darius}}'': The bosses of the series are all gigantic mechanical sea creatures. Though they mimic the movements of living creatures extremely well, the lore states that they are in fact just machines piloted by other creatures.

Animal mecha are, simply put, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin mecha built in the shape of animals]]. They are usually modeled after creatures considered {{Badass}}, especially [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs]], [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]], predatory beasts ([[PantheraAwesome often big cats]]), and [[GiantFlyer birds of prey]].
