* Before the Fall in ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' several national militaries built anthroform war machines, both piloted and remote-operated. During the Fall the [=TITANs=] hacked most of them as well as fabricating their own improved Warbots, leaving a lot of people post-Fall rather twitchy around mechs.

* Deconstructed by a simulated Humongous Mecha battle that takes place between two diplomats in the Literature/DreamPark novel ''The Barsoom Project''. Their battle is staged in the middle of a simulated city, complete with tiny terrified civilians who die in droves every time the robots make a move, as a psychological ploy to get the bickering diplomats back to the negotiating table.

* The ending of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' depicts the game's main protagonist, Rean Schwarzer, [[spoiler:discovering and activating one of these known as a Divine Knight named Valimar after passing a trial and becoming his "Awakener." It's a giant mechanized robot that Rean operates from the inside as its pilot. The final battle involves him fighting his classmate, Crow Armbrust, who it turns out was TheMole all along, and who was an Awakener for another of these, Ordine, and has been for over two years. As such, Valimar is crushed by Ordine's secret power, forcing him and Rean to flee and the second game, ''Trails of Cold Steel II'', involves Rean learning Valimar's powers and eventually gaining the same ability that Crow devastated him with before.]]

** The [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] crafted Numidium is a [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]] example prominent in the backstory, and then as a major plot point in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]''. Tiber Septim used it to complete his conquest of Tamriel, something he likely would not have been able to do without it. It was so massive and so powerful that even activating it warped time and reality, [[TimeCrash right up to affecting even the ''God of Time'' himself]].

** In [[WordOfSaintPaul C0DA]], written by former developer Michael Kirkbride who still does some freelance work for the series, Numidium makes a comeback as the primary obstacle, having successfully destroyed the world and unbound time.

* The Justice League use a Voltron style combining mech to escape Mongol's prison in the opening to ''ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal''. Toyman had slipped in the protocol into the machines that Mongol had made him built to kill them, and Batman figured it out. The resulting mecha had Flash as a foot, to his irritation.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' and AnotherCenturysEpisode. For the most part, the series consists of crossovers from an astoundingly large number of Humongous Mecha anime, though not all in the same game, or even timeline. Most games have also included [[OriginalGeneration original creations]], both Real and Super, such as the Elemental Lord Cybuster. The original creations then got their own crossover with each other in the Original Generation subseries.

* ''VideoGame/RobotAlchemicDrive'' is a {{Troperiffic}} love letter to Humongous Mecha in general and ''[[Anime/{{Gigantor}} Tetsujin #28]]'' in particular; the key gameplay mechanic is that the player ''doesn't'' directly control the giant robot but TheKidWithTheRemoteControl. 90% of the strategy is finding a good viewpoint where the squishy kid won't get stepped on.

** ''Barbra Streisand'' transforms into a humongous mecha and goes on the rampage. However, it's not a not humanoid but a godzilla-like machine. The word 'mecha' is used in the episode to describe Ike, who's merely giant and not mechanical in any way.
