* This is rife in the original trilogy of ''AnotherCenturysEpisode'', where the player's selected HumongousMecha lumbers or gets a lift to the catapult of the hero faction's warship. This is most accentuated in ACE 2 where each robot ends up on the catapult with a short musical jingle accompanying them, which gets lengthened if the mecha in question has large thrusters like the [[Anime/MetalArmorDragonar Dragonar]] units. Then, a 3D cut-in of the mecha's pilot appears, requesting for launch, of note is the Akito Tenkawa simply saying "Going." with a grin on his face. The logical extreme that went with all this presenation in mind was Domon Kasshu summoning the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam God Gundam]] by snapping his fingers and appearing on the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Albion's]] bridge rather than the flight deck).

* ''AnotherCenturysEpisode'' gained this in the second game, with each robot doing something suitably iconic (for example, [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam God Gundam]] summoned by a finger-snap and appearing on the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Albion's]] bridge rather than the flight deck).

* A one-time example occurs during episode 14 of ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', where an AmazonBrigade made up of most of the [=HiME=] is shown heading into battle against the season's BigBad. Each of the girls (minus Mikoto, who just goes into a blind, screaming charge) emerges from an ElaborateUndergroundBase, summons her [[BondCreatures CHILD]], and launches into the fray while a ThemeMusicPowerUp triggers in the background. Midori [[GenreSavvy naturally]] lampshades it by yelling "TAKEOFF!" when it's her turn.
