* During most of ''The Final Station'' you hear characters mentioning the Guardian, the awesome weapon being built to counter ''their'' attacks, and debating its presumed effectiveness or lack thereof - the project has been long-delayed by various problems and implied bureaucratic red-tape. [[spoiler: When you finally see it, it's '''''enormous''''' - it dwarfs the city it's being built in, and you never get to see more than a small part of it due to the rest being completely outside of the screen.]] You're tasked to help bring it to functionality by bringing core parts to where it's being built, [[spoiler: then it's launched in a massive plume of fire. And then a few minutes later you very anticlimactically happen across its broken remains - the way the plot is told never makes clear whether it's destroyed, sabotaged or fails spontaneously, but the large gashes on the thing's superstructure make one wonder.]]

* ''VideoGame/MetalFatigue'' is an RTS built on this trope. There are non-mecha units, but even the one designed specifically against mecha is useless against decently armored models.

* ''VideoGame/MetalFatigue'' is an RTS built on this trope. There are non-mecha units, but they're only useful underground where mecha can't go. Aboveground and in the air they're pointless - mecha rule supreme and even the one tank designed specifically against mecha is useless against decently armored models.to combat them doesn't work all that well..

** These also feature in SpinOff ''OG Saga: EndlessFrontier'', but there, they tend to be less "as big as a building" and more [[MiniMecha "quite a bit larger than a person."]]

* First boss you fight in Videogame/TheWonderful101 is Gah-Goojin, gigantic mecha size of a skyscraper. Most later bosses control even ''bigger'' mechas. The ending takes it to ludicrously absurd levels with first [[spoiler: Platinum Robo which is a construct made of skyscrapers and other debris of destroyed city]], and then -- with [[spoiler: Unite Ultra Platinum which is CombiningMecha made of Platinum Robo and ''200'' hijacked Gah-Goojins]].
