* ''{{Mechwarrior}}'' has this trope in the form of the cockpit hitbox location. However despite the fact that it has minimal armor and a powerful shot can in fact instakill any mech if you hit it the small size and difficulty of hitting it even under the best of conditions makes it almost universally a lucky shot if you pull it off.

* In many of the VideoGame/MegaManClassic games, the various Wily Machines that Dr. Wily pilots are generally weak at the cockpit. In a few cases, such as ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'', Mega Man has to break a different part of the Wily Machine to reveal the cockpit, but eventually, this trope will apply.

* ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime'' for the {{SNES}} gives you this in your first boss fight against Shredder, who's in a mechanical construct firing all sorts of weapons at you while his [[{{Mook}} Foot Soldiers]] are distracting you (and the battle is shown from Shredder's point of view). While you can beat up the ninjas endlessly, the only way to beat Shredder is to throw said ninjas into the screen.

That is, certain {{Boss Fight}}s look very threatening, but all you need to do is hit the incredibly obvious glass chamber - which can either hold the pilot, an exposable core system, or whatever they decided to put behind it -- ForMassiveDamage.

* Abductors in ''VideoGame/FreedomWars'' have giant "pods" on their bodies, the destruction of which will deal heavy damage to the Abductor (as well as liberating whoever is trapped inside). Be careful, though: once the pod is broken, the Abductor TurnsRed.
