* MagicTheGathering: The Weatherlight, although it was designed by what was essentially a god to be part of a weapon that was powerful enough to kill an actual god So Yeah.
* {{Traveller}} has lots of these. The Terran Confederation Navy had the Indomitable class battleships, which practically destroyed the Vilani navy on their own.

* The Avenger in XCOM2 is a converted alien transport ship that despite it's humble beginnings and complete lack of weaponry, manages to be extremely impressive.

* ''Fanfic/CyclesUponCycles'': The ''[[Franchise/MassEffect Normandy]]''. It's a souped-up [[Franchise/StarCraft Battlecruiser]] with a [[InvisibilityCloak stealth cloak]] and a rapid-fire Yamato Cannon, and carries everything from Marines to a detachment of Protoss, in addition to mechanized and aerial forces.

** Vader's personal TIE Advanced x1. It manages to take a TIE Fighter, essentially the ''Franchise/StarWars'' version of [[StarCraft Zerg]][[ZergRush lings]], and actually ''make it a decent combatant''. Shields and a hyperdrive go a long way to making it the Imperial version of an X-wing or Y-wing. The only drawback is that it moves slightly more slowly than average TIE Fighter, although the fact that the only one we see in the films is ''flown by the greatest pilot in history'' tends to make up for this.

* In ''[[Franchise/StarCraft Starcraft II]]'', the protagonists' starship, the Hyperion, a stolen [[TheEmpire Dominion]] battlecruiser, qualifies. Also, the Void Seeker (Zeratul's ship) and possibly the Shield of Aiur (Artanis' Ship).

* ''TransformersAnimated'' the Autobots had a junky old decommissioned warship serving as their mode of transportation. While not ''that'' cool, what made it cool was in the last episodes of season 2...[[spoiler:where it turns out the big but creaky old ship is in fact a single Transformer, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Omega Supreme]]]]. There's also Lockdown's ship that has the ability to become invisible.
** The original series has the Autobots' cool ship the ''Ark,'' although it crashes in the very first episode and spends the entire rest of the series being used as a ''building'' rather than a spaceship.
** And the Decepticons' flagship, the battlecruiser ''Nemesis'', which returned in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' and really showed off her massive destructive ability before crashing in South America, to be rediscovered later by Megatron, who took out its power core to give himself a super-boost of power. Yes, he was empowered by the engine of his personal warship.

* ''[[AwesomeMcCoolName Nemesis]]'' in ''Literature/TheLastAngel'' is the first Dreadnaught built by Humanity and its first true warship. Six and a quarter kilometers long, both her primary reactor and [[WaveMotionGun main gun]] harness this universe's form of [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace FTL]] to, respectively, provide more power than anyone else in the 'verse can come close to matching and OneShot any known warship in existence. Perhaps most importantly, by the time of the main story she has been active for two thousand years and has been run solely by her AI, [[SapientShip Red One]], for almost all of them.
