* Important to the plot of the movie ''Battle Beneath The Earth'' is the usage of laser drill vehicles by both the [[RenegadeRussian rogue]] [[YellowPeril Chinese general and his army]] and [[AmericaSavesTheDay the Americans]] to burrow underground and plant nuclear weapons on strategic locations that will destroy the United States (and the fight to stop said placing).

While the Americans' laser drill is a prototype that craps out real quick, the Chinese drill is a perfect example of this trope, heavily armored and [[KillItWithFire equipped with an anti-personnel flamethrower]].

* The first five Franchise/MetalHeroes had these in some form. ** ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' had Scoopers, a bifurcated drill tank. ** ''Series/SpaceSheriffSharivan'' had Mogriran, a single drill tank. ** ''Series/SpaceSheriffShaider'' had Battle Shaian, which was the bottom part of the Shaian tank, the upper part split into a CoolShip; he calls for it from his bigger CoolShip when he needs to break into a fortified / underground enemy base. Upon making a breach, he fires a couple of missiles before disembarking and assaulting on foot. This cop doesn't believe in flashbangs. *** In ''Series/VRTroopers'', they get one of these in the second season (when the ''Shaider'' footage began usage). Strangely, it seems ''every EvilPlan ever'' suddenly requires something to be made in one of these underground facilities before the facility is destroyed in [[StockFootage precisely the same fashion]] as last week's. ** ''Series/KyojuuTokusouJuspion'' had Garbin Tank; the part in the middle split into a CoolShip too. ** ''Series/JikuuSenshiSpielban'' had Drill Gaios, which was the Gaios tank with a drill turbine exposed in the center; the cabin could transform into a CoolShip and ShoutOut to the [[StarWars X-Wing]]. (This was also used in ''VR Troopers'', but as an assault tank and fighter jet mainly; the drill portion was only used a couple of times.)

* The drilling machine in ''At the Earth's Core'' is the best special effect in the film. The dinosaurs are very much of the B-movie variety, but the drilling machine looks awesome.

* Unfortunately we never actually see the device in action, but Dr Blue's "Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine" is the 'title character' of ''{{Boneshaker}}'', a SteamPunk novel by Cherie Priest. A massive mobile drill created in 1860's Seattle to drill through the ice for the Russian government, [[spoiler:its inventor instead uses his creation to loot several underground bank vaults, creating massive subsidence and accidentally releasing an underground gas that turns people into zombies.]]
