* A non-robotic example that doesn't use legs to begin with, but in one early episode of ''{{Beyblade}}'', Kenny, normally a non-action character, attempts to enter a beyblade contest with a spring loaded top in lieu of the traditional spinning method. This works well enough against some of the weaker players due to being evasive and being out of the range of attack most of the time until the opponent's top run out of spinning momentum, but due to its inability to attack it became easy prey to Kai's superior blade and skill.

* The Hopster from ''MakaiKingdom'', which appears again as the TX-6 Jumpstart from ''VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero''. "No one knows if it's supposed to move like that, or if it's just broken."

* ''KnightRider'': KITT can do something similar to the ''Series/RedDwarf'' example when the situation warrants, which is pretty much OnceAnEpisode. The production team got through a ''lot'' of Trans-Am bodyshells for those stunts. * ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': The Black Frog Ninjazord, naturally, what with being a frog.

* In ''LuckyStarr and the Oceans of Venus'', Lucky needs to get somewhere fast and all the regular vehicles are being used to evacuate the sector of the UnderwaterCity. A policeman jokingly suggests that he take a "hopper"--a ludicrous hopping vehicle that was a System-wide fad some years back--and Lucky takes him up on it.
