* The Wiki/SCPFoundation has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2406 SCP-2046,]] a giant mechanical robot built by followers of an ancient religion that would eventually become the Church of the Broken God. The included excerpts from one of the Church's holy books reveal that [[spoiler:it was designed to fight {{Kaiju}} created by a sorcerer king's dark magic and prevent a cataclysmic event known as the "Sarkic Dawn." So, in other words, it's a [[Film/PacificRim Jaeger.]]]][[/folder]]

* Combining CthulhuMythos, {{Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross}}, {{Guyver}} and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', you get ''TabletopGame/CthulhuTech''. The irony is that while it's even more weird than ''Dragon Mech'', it has too much CaptainErsatz and thus is not as unique.

* The "Ikusa Yoroi" ("War Armors") in ''Anime/NobunagaTheFool''; their designs seem to range from Midieval knights (like in ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne''), to samurai (fitting, given the setting of the Western and Eastern Planets).

* Working with concept artist Vitaly Bulgarov, Korea Future Technology created a humanoid walking mecha called the [[http://www.wired.co.uk/article/korea-building-giant-robot-mech METHOD-1]]. Looking like a cross between ''Film/{{Aliens}}''' Power Loader and the AMP Suits from ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' it features a glass cockpit. The pilot can control the robot using a variety of buttons, joysticks, and [[MotionCaptureMecha motion capture]]. METHOD-1 was built to study the suitability of giant mecha in the real world with various utilitarian applications.

* In live-action, giant transforming and combining mecha have been a staple of the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' franchise since its third installment, ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', having borrowed the concept from [[Series/SpiderManJapan a live-action Japanese adaptation]] of ''Franchise/SpiderMan''. Yes, ''that'' Spider-Man.

Yes, ''that'' Spider-Man. It should be noted however, that Super Sentai's mecha are only actual ''mechanical'' about half the time, otherwise being spirits, gods, spiritual projections, etc, that just ''look'' like robots. Sometimes this carries over to Power Rangers, sometimes not.

* The classic western Humongous Mecha tabletop game is ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'', and its RPG spinoff, ''[=MechWarrior=]''. Both series feature everything from [[PoweredArmor 3-meter tall battle frames]] to hulking 25-meter tall fusion-powered [=BattleMechs=] ranging from 20 to 100 metric tons, and even a few rare TransformingMecha. While ''Battletech'' is now more known for its RealRobotGenre designs, its first editions largely featured very much Eastern mecha designs that were licensed from ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' (among others) that led to a [[ScrewedByTheLawyers messy lawsuit due to licensing confusion]], resulting in those designs becoming "[[{{Unperson}} unseen]]" for 20 some years til they received a redesign. Incidentally, it's also the reason this trope is called Humongous ''Mecha'' [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope and not Humongous Mechs]].
