* The WhateleyUniverse is arguably one of the settings where despite the best efforts of human and mutant engineers, giant mecha canonically just plain don't ''work''. (Power armor exists, but is much more to human scale.) And yet, during the big Halloween 2006 battle, perpetual school project Tiny Tim gets a personal CrowningMomentOfAwesome once it's been brought to the surface -- not under its own power, mind -- by demonstrating that while it may not be able to walk worth a damn, at least some of its ''guns'' are quite operational...

*Theecat's six robotic horses combine into the mecha Lord Equus to combat Paul in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. It successfully kicks Paul across Boidan Valley. However, not long after that John sinks the thing deep into the ground. So much for awesome.

* {{Starcraft}}: The Goliath (and to a lesser extent the Dragoon) could've been a more normal tank-type vehicle, but that wouldn't have been [[RuleOfCool nearly cool enough]]. [[VideoGame/StarcraftII The sequel]] [[UpToEleven adds even more]].

* ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. Let's face it, they don't ''need'' to include the MakeMyMonsterGrow part every episode, but nobody's really complaining about the giant robots the Rangers pull out in response. The first two Sentai series, ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger'' and ''Series/JAKQDengekitai,'' had no super robots, just GerryAnderson-esque vehicles, and the latter was not very successful -- it was the introduction of super robots into the show with ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' that distinguished the show from the dozens of other HenshinHero shows at the time and made it a CashCowFranchise.

* ''Roleplay/DestroyTheGodmodder'' invokes this trope repeatedly. The AGs will be going along, trampling the shreds of the godmodder's forces, then suddenly a horde of giant mechs attacks them. Again.
