** The series has several iconic mook mechs of it's own, most notably the [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091120235207/superrobotwars/images/7/7a/Gespenst.gif Gespenst]] series. Mind you, in these games even a regular grunt unit can be pretty {{Badass}} in the right hands. Watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWBTwDa4Wy4 here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB4SP1sqU7g here]] as [[BadassNormal Major Kai]] demonstrates why you don't need no fancy AceCustom to kick ass.

* An odd one in ''Anime/TheBraveOfGoldGoldran'': The 'Custom Gear' robots deployed by Serious Walzac are basically [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zakus]]. The purpose-specific [[EliteMooks Walter-use variations thereof]] hew closer to GM-style customizations, and overall are gradually supplanted with Mobile Armor-style robots that stand more of a chance against the [[SuperRobot Legendra Yuushas]].

* Since the domain of the angelic god of Cooperation in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' includes both political and ''literal'' machines, his [[RobotMaster Lightspeaker]] angels summon ClockPunk holy war robots called Judgemasters. They're generally benevolent but can be very dangerous on the occasions when Lightspeakers succumb to BlackAndWhiteInsanity.

* The Corpus in {{Warframe}} have a huge robo-fetish, deploying vast armies of robots and always developing newer, more deadly models. Their crews are generally one third human and two third robotic "security proxies", mainly the Moa bipedal turrets and Osprey flying support drones. Heavier models include the Bursa, a 'roided-up Moa with crowd control and [[AntiMagic anti-Tenno]] abilities, the Hyena, a [[ElementalPowers specialized]] robot that hunts in packs and the Raptors, which are essentially flying artillery platforms. The heaviest models are the Jackal, a [[NighInvulnerability nearly-indestructible]] tank-like behemoth and the Razorback, which turns the Jackal's defenses UpToEleven and is ultimately only vulnerable to ForcedFriendlyFire from its supporting Bursas.

** A special mention goes to Alad V's Zanuka robots, which are specialized Tenno hunters built from the [[OrganicTechnology scavenged pieces]] of [[BlackBox captured Warframes]]. They are as agile as Hyenas and much more durable, employ their own [[AntiMagic nullification abilities]] and have the arsenal of the Jackal. Alad V usually deploys them to hunt down and capture [[PriceOnTheirHead particularly troublesome]] Tenno Warframes for [[BodyHorror disassembly]].

* ''{{Videogame/Xenoblade}}'' has the mechon, though they are certainly not fragile, they take only [[ScratchDamage Scratch Damage]] from conventional weapons, and half damage from magic attacks. Their only weakness is the [[{{BFS}} Mon]][[LaserSword ado]]

{{Anime}}, has a second, more [[HumongousMecha literal]] type: RealRobot series' will usually have at least one class of {{mecha}} that basically acts as [[RedshirtArmy the "Grunt" unit]] for the bad guy's army. This mech is usually simply constructed, probably with a basic ranged weapon ([[GatlingGood machinegun]] or [[FrickinLaserBeams energy weapon]] or two, a close-combat weapon, and may have the option of carrying a [[{{BFG}} bigger gun]], depending on how much tougher the hero's armor is. These will act just like regular Mooks ''or'' Mecha-Mooks, depending on how much the writers want you to empathize with the enemy. There's usually a very good chance that the Hero's Rival will at least start out by riding in an AceCustom version of this mecha. [[TankGoodness Tanks]] usually serve a similar role on the heroes' side, and said grunt will often be the only thing they can reasonably threaten.
