* While they never appeared in the cartoon, the ''[[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots GoBots]]'' toy line had a team of robots that individually turned into cars and could combine into a larger robot called Puzzler. Later came Monsterous, whose component robots had alternate "monster" forms. More difficult to classify were the Power Suits, which involved robots wearing individual power armor combining with a fighter plane piloted by another robot to form a larger robot.

* ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', and therefore ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', of course. 35 years of the former and 20 years of the latter with 2-3 super robots per season mean everything's been covered. ''Everything.'' For the purpose of simplicity, ''Power Rangers'' terms will primarily be used here - ''Super Sentai'' has few cross-series terms like 'zord,' without which this becomes a lot harder to describe.

* Two Player Mode in ''VideoGame/{{Blasteroids}}'' can have one player with a ship in Speeder mode (small, fast and maneuverable with little armor or firepower in exchange) combine with the other's ship in Warrior mode (large, slow but heavily armored) to form the Spiaret (or "Starlet", in the Amiga version): The Speeder becomes a player-controlled turret that has firepower increased for its role but loses the ability to move independently (the Thrust button instead firing large blue shots), while the Warrior body of the Spiaret loses its firepower but gains maneuverability in exchange.

* A short anthology story, penned by Creator/NeilGaiman, has the inhabitants of two sleepy backwater villages somewhere in southern Europe fight out an annual mock-battle, in which they climb on each other's shoulders and form a massive human-shaped entity. The "combined mecha" of each vllage, each made up of hundreds of people, then fights out a mock battle, the movement of its "arms" and "legs" dictated by a bizarre series of ropes and pulleys directed from the "brain". This all goes tragically wrong one day when the super-mecha, a sort of massive flesh golem, collapses under its own weight, with massive loss of life and injury. Neither village ever recovers from the loss of so many of its best young people.
