* In ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}'', we have Yliandra's ultimate weapon, the Bijelined Dreadnought. Big enough that its innards comprise a dungeon.

** In a nice bit of lamp-shade hanging in the book of the first game, Snake reflects that Otacon even gave the thing sound effects to sound like a dragon. It doesn't get much cooler than that.
*** Of course, [[MeaningfulName Otacon]] is a [[HollywoodNerd Hollywood]] {{Otaku}} who got into robot engineering for the sole reason that he wanted to build HumongousMecha like in {{anime}}. Of course he is going to want to [[RuleOfCool snazz it up]]. His commentary in [=MGS4=] suggests he and the rest of the engineering team sneaked in a lot of little features like that, [[ThrowItIn just because they had the oppertunity]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' features Liberty Prime, a giant robot who memorably spouts anti-communist propaganda in battle (making him a literal PropagandaMachine.) A particularly egrarious example, as ''Fallout 3'' takes place in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] ScavengerWorld where the realistic odds of anybody getting a functioning giant robot are astronomical. The guy is just so damn cool though, that's he's become a MemeticMutation.
