* SpiderMan once fought a trucker who fancied himself a crime fighter named Razorback (who was rather incompetent and had a pretty dumb-looking cowl that looked like a boar's head; the story was written back when CB radios were becoming a fad for motorists other than truckers). Having said that, the modified rig he drove - which he named "The Big Pig" -- was kind of cool; he could even drive it using a remote control.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' used this in some of the Disney-owned seasons. ''[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]]'' made the most use of their Mobile Command Center, while [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]] brought out a suspiciously similar rig for their final assault on the villain base. [[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]] went with a new design for the SWAT Command Truck.

** 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''.
** 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.

* ''Literature/{{Demon Road}}: American Monsters'' has Amber and Milo running from a Peterbilt, also a demonic symbiote like the Charger. Demoriel, the Whispering Demon, makes deals with those who have conveyances, such as cars in the modern age; Milo is wanted by Demoriel because he welched on his [[DealWithTheDevil deal]], and the Peterbilt's driver is another one of his. He even picks up a young girl they met earlier and breaks her mind, trying to use her to kill Amber.

* The roads into [[http://ravensblight.com/index.html Ravensblight]] are haunted by two rigs; the [[http://ravensblight.com/PhantomSemi.html Phantom Semi]] runs people off the road, honks and disappears, less like a villain than a child playing who thinks he's not hurting anyone but is too immature to see that that isn't true, and an [[http://ravensblight.com/GhostTruck.html old truck]] which looks suspiciously like the one from ''Film/{{Duel}}'', but is driven by a helpful person named Chester Floyd, whose face cannot be seen. When you mention who gave you a lift at the gas station he drops you at, you suddenly expect the clerk to say "worst accident I ever did..." but, no, it's [[SubvertedTrope "Chester, Yeah he was just in here. Came in for some Cheesy Yums."]] Double subverted when you mention your apprehension and he responds "Dead? Oh, yeah, he's dead all right, worst accident I ever did see... Still, he comes in here every so often for some Cheesy Yums. He loves those things. Don't see how he eats 'em, though; not havin' a head and all..."
