* The Advent fighters and bombers in ''VideoGame/SinsOfASolarEmpire'' are actually drones (or anima) controlled by powerful [[PsychicPowers psychics]], according to [[AllInTheManual the manual]]. Each squadron is controlled by a single person, so this allows the Advent to spam fighters and bombers (they don't need to train dozens of pilots, just several controllers).

** Additionally, [[AllInTheManual the manual]] for ''Cataclysm'' states that the Sentinel defense pods (which can project a DeflectorShield around a particular ship when working with other Sentinels and also have a gun) were originally designed to be AI-operated. Unfortunately, the sheer complexity of the systems has resulted in the accidental destruction of a Somtaaw frigate, when an AI-controlled Sentinel projected a shield through the ship, slicing it. Naturally, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation you can't do this in the game]]. However, since then, the pods have been refitted with a minimal life support system to allow it to be piloted.

** Universal Century kicked it off with bits, funnels, and incoms. Bits tend to be larger and carry their own reactors, while funnels are smaller and have to dock with their [[HumongousMecha mobile suit]] to recharge ([[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nu Gundam's]] fin funnels are a misnomer, carrying their own reactor) While the latter two require PsychicPowers to function, incoms don't, at the cost of requiring a guidance cable.

* Your main power-up in the NeoGeo game ''VideoGame/LastResort'' is a drone that follows your ship, blocks enemy shots and damages enemies like the ''R-Type'' Force Pod, and shoots when you do. Instead of having a separate gun that charges up, you charge energy into the drone and launch it as a projectile, then it boomerangs back to you. Since you can toggle the drone's relative position to your ship, it can be launched in whatever direction you want.

Multiplayer allows use of them for various purposes, from simply [[EnemyDetectingRadar detecting enemies on the map]] to dropping a missile. ** In ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'', players can call [[PlayerGuidedMissile guided missile strikes]] from Predator drones. ''Modern Warfare 3'' adds the similar Reaper drone, which fires multiple laser-guided missiles.

** ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Red Alert 2]]'' and [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 onwards]] are pretty generous with the trope. The practice differs according to alignment: heroic drones (Allies: [[MacrossMissileMassacre Hornets, Sky Knights]] and [[TankGoodness Robot Tanks]]) are slaved to an expensive master control (such as a [[CoolBoat seaborne]] [[DroneDeployer Aircraft Carrier]]) and villainous drones (Soviet: [[VehicularSabotage Terror Drones]], Yuri: [[PsychoSerum Chaos Drones]], Imperial: [[{{EMP}} Sunburst]] [[SuicideAttack Drone]]) are autonomous, brittle, cheap and, most importantly, [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty disruptive to an opposing force]]. But one thing's for sure: since they're robots, [[PsychicBlockDefense mind control resistance]] and [[InsanityImmunity insantity immunity]] are always guaranteed.

* ''Gundam Breaker'' allows you to equip funnel-type weapons on your Gunpla by equipping certain backpack parts like Sazabi's, taking up an EX attack. Using Strike Freedom's while combined with certain weapons even allowed you yo use the signature Hi-MAT attack ** The sequel moves most of the funnel parts to sub weapons and manages to turn it Up to Eleven with the amount of Gunpla provided, allowing you to literally create a unit with funnels all over its body.
