* Goemon Impact of GanbareGoemon. People tend to remember him by his ImageSong, which begins with a shout of '''"DA-DA-DASH!"''' (He's actually an alien that just happens to look like a robot. ''All righty, then...'') Impact is also an international movie star that wears roller sandals and shoots bullets out his nose. No, really. [[RuleOfCool And why, you ask?]]

** ''Series/UltramanMebius''' Imperisers were the [[BigBad Empera]]'s MechaMooks. That didn't mean they were easy to kill though. A single one overwhelmed the main characters for two episodes thanks to its gatling laser cannons, self-repair powers, and teleportation abilities
** Mecha Gomora from the Franchise/UltramanZero special ''Ultraman Zero vs Darklops Zero'' can be pretty much summed up as the ''Ultra Series''' answer to Mechagodzilla above. Its creators, the Salome aliens, specialize in building legions upon legions of {{Robot Me}}s of Ultra heroes.

Added DiffLines:

* A good chunk of ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' {{kaiju}} are giant robots. Notable ones include:
** King Joe from ''Series/UltraSeven'' is the most iconic of the bunch and [[TheJuggernaut one tough customer]]. In some series,, he receives an ArmCannon capable of killing weaker kaiju in a single shot.
** Windam from the same series is a ''friendly'' example whom Ultraseven calls forth a few times to help battle the MonsterOfTheWeek. Oh yeah, and in ''Series/UltramanMebius'', he gets equipped with a flamethrower.
** Another foe of Ultraseven is Narse, a robot ''[[NinJaZombiePirateRobot dragon]]'' that can transform into a spaceship.
** [[RobotMe Robot Ultramen]] are popular foes, but few match the Terranoid, the final foe of Series/UltramanDyna and an mechanical duplicate of the eponymous hero created by humans to replace him. Unfortunately, it gets corrupted by [[BigBad the Sphires]] and becomes Zelganoid.
** ''Series/UltramanMebius''' Imperisers were the [[BigBad Empera]]'s MechaMooks. That didn't mean they were easy to kill though. A single one overwhelmed the main characters for two episodes thanks to its gatling laser cannons, self-repair powers, and teleportation abilities

** The drill-armed Legionoids and RobotMe Darklopses formed Ultraman Belial's MechaMooks in ''Film/UltramanZeroTheRevengeOfBelial''.
** Jean-Bot from the same movie as the aforementioned MechaMooks was one of Ultraman Zero's allies, being an {{expy}} of an old Tsuburaya superhero called Jumborg Ace.
** Galactron from ''Series/UltramanOrb'' was constructed to bring world peace, but believed the best way to do so was to ''annihilate all life in the universe''. And it did a pretty good job at that do as it ravaged its creators' world with its plethora of laser cannons and melee weaponry.

* Before the events of Videogame/BattleClash'', Antonov uncovered a standing tank factory in Russia and, rather than use it to build said vehicle, converted the entire facility into a SpiderTank called "Ivan", which stands a little over [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever fifty feet tall!]] Ivan can be outrun by a tricycle, boasting a top speed of twelve miles an hour, but your pilot, Mike, [[GoodIsDumb insists on being sporting]] and [[ViolationOfCommonSense engaging it head on]], making for a fairly difficult battle. The sequel, ''Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge'', features Cobra, which is one hundred and fifty feet tall! However, Cobra a semi serpent that doesn't actually stand so much as float in the atmosphere of a Gas Giant. Grouken is even bigger than Cobra but is basically a giant underwater box with torpedo silos.

*** They than decided "Screw that" and built the KX139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour. With one arm being the same size as a riptide battle suit, it ''can'' singlehandedly take out the biggest of the Imperium's war machines. One of its two arm mounted weapons has an expected lifetime of one battle. Why is it worth it? Put simply, the Tau have yet to find a physical material that can stop its blast. However, given that most really big things are protected by decidedly not physical void shields (30 on the second biggest one of the Imperium's) that can be disabled by hitting them hard enough, a single one will have some problems with taking them out. Fortunately, they do not operate alone...
