* In ''{{TabletopGame/BattleTech}}'', there's two ways to do this. If a [[HumongousMecha Battlemech]] falls down, there's a slim chance it will land on its head and the cockpit (and possibly the pilot inside) will be damaged or destroyed. And whether or not that happens, the Mechwarrior has to make an additional Piloting roll to see if they take damage from being jostled about in general (the dreaded "seatbelt check").

* In ''{{TabletopGame/BattleTech}}'', there's two ways to do this. this is a surprisingly common trope. If a [[HumongousMecha Battlemech]] falls down, there's a slim chance it will land on its head and the cockpit (and possibly the pilot inside) will could be damaged or destroyed. And whether or not that happens, the Mechwarrior has to make an additional Piloting roll to see if they take damage from being jostled about in general (the dreaded "seatbelt check"). And any time a mech falls over, it takes damage based on its mass, which might finish it off if the mech is in bad enough shape. Some mechs are particularly prone to this trope, like the Stalker II, which combines Hardened Armor and a Torso-Mounted Cockpit, both of which apply a penalty to the dice roll needed to avoid falling or successfully stand back up after a fall. If the optional rules for Quirks are in play, the Stalker II is in even worse shape, as its No/Minimal Arms quirk (for having nothing but stubby missile pods for arms) gives it a further penalty.
