** There was also Ultra Magnus, who was somewhat bigger than Optimus because he incorporated his trailer into his robot mode (the Japanese toy he was based on was a super-mode version of the one Optimus was based on).

* The GUN Truck from VideoGame/SonicAdventure2. [[AdvancingWallOfDoom It's big enough to fill a whole street]], [[DrivesLikeCrazy agile enough to make a hard left or right turn at said size]], and [[LightningBruiser fast enough to keep up with]] ''[[SuperSpeed Sonic]]''. The truck gets turned UpToEleven in VideoGame/SonicGenerations; there, it has rockets for added mobility (including driving along walls), it's constantly [[MookMaker dispensing GUN robot troops]], and it has three [[ChainsawGood gigantic buzzsaws]] that it tries to puree you with.

Apparently, collateral damage is insignificant when you're trying to get revenge on a hedgehog who outsmarted you 10 years ago.

** The War Rigs from ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. The one used by our heroes has two massive supercharged V8s up front, the back half of a vintage sedan stuck on the back of the cab for passengers and two defensive nests made from other cars on top of the tanker trailer. The Gas Town rig has an entire 70s Mercedes limo as it's cab. Several other equally huge and equally ''awesome'' vehicles are present but either not technically big trucks (The Gigahorse is more a monster truck, the Doof Wagon's truck portion is much smaller) or quite prominent enough to count (the car carrier occasionally panned across but never seen doing anything significant).

** In ''Age of Extinction'', the KSI corporation is attempting to replace Optimus with a superior man-made drone called Galvatron. About the only aspect of Optimus that KSI successfully copies for Galvatron is his alt mode, a sleek gray cab-over semi that contrasts nicely with the boxy, rusted-out cab-over that Optimus starts the movie disguised as.

** In the first three films, Optimus Prime has a Peterbilt 379 vehicle mode. Unlike most of his animated appearances, his vehicle mode is a conventional truck (with the engine ahead of the driver). In ''[[Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction Age of Extinction]]'', because he's on the run from his former human allies he has adopted a rusted old Marmon 97 cab-over design more reminiscent of his classic look. When he decides to stop hiding and [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]] he scans a Western Star 4900 Phantom Custom and applies his red-and-blue-flame paint job to it.

** Optimus Prime has a Peterbilt 379 vehicle mode. Unlike most of his animated appearances, his vehicle mode is a conventional truck (with the engine ahead of the driver). ** For ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Megatron adopts a new alternate mode that certainly fits this trope. A heavily modified Mack tanker truck littered with spikes and chains, it would fit right in on the set of Mad Max.
