* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' - The Big Bad in the [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieLegendOfTheStoneOfGelel second movie]] had one of these, in addition to a number of World War 2 style warships. Needless to say they actually managed to looked out of place even in the SchizoTech the series runs on.
* ''Anime/SpeedRacer: The Movie'' had Cruncher Block hanging out in the well-furnished (complete with piranha tank) back of a big red truck. This is possibly a ShoutOut to the Mammoth Car from the original cartoon, which blurred the line between CoolCar and ''CoolTrain''.

* Idilithia of ''Literature/{{Calamity}}'' is an interesting variant on this trope. Buildings on one side of the city are constantly crumbling to dust, but the other side expands and grows new buildings at the same rate. So instead of moving like a car or train, it moves like a spot of mold moving across a piece of bread.

* In the post-apocalypse cyberpunk, supernatural horror game ''Obsidian - The Age of Judgement'', the Law agency has two types of tank-like, mobile bases. The first is the Precinct. It's a 40 feet wide and long, there are 6 armoured police cars and over 30 officers inside and it houses offices, a detox lab, an advanced sensor suite, 10 holding cells and a ton of guns for the men inside. The Precinct is also heavily armoured and packs a lot of autocannons, caught between the Precinct's weaponry and the troops within, most enemies end up getting slaughtered against it. The second is the much rarer but vastly more powerful Executioner, of which there are only 4. The Executioner dwarfs the Precinct, coming in at 150 feet long and 50 wide. It carries 10 of the cars that the Precinct has and has a crew of over 45 officers. Inside there twenty living quarters, a detox lab and a science lab, 5 holding cells plus 1 extra-large cell for holding gigantic demons, a gym room and a galley. The Executioners are extremely well-armoured and armed to the teeth, and in almost a century of service, they have successfully destroyed or driven off the vast majority of demonic incursions encountered - including those by demons the size of mountains.
