* The UrExample is the ''{{Gordian}}'', from the show of the same name, a dude inside a MotionCaptureMecha inside a MotionCaptureMecha inside ''another'' MotionCaptureMecha. The design was later reused with some modifications as Vi-Kungfu from ''MachineRobo: Revenge of Chronos'', but with one less mecha.

** The latest Space Marine codex introduced Centurion armour, which is essentially a huge, unwieldy suit of PowerArmor wrapped around the pilot's normal PowerArmor and loaded down with either terrifying amounts of firepower or tank-shredding drills with built-in flamethrowers. [[WebVideo/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice The Emperor]] loves the [[{{Foreshadowing}} Imperial Fist]] Centurion, calling it a "big teddy bear" while he holds the Dreadknight in disdain.

* In the MagicTheGathering set ''Kaladesh'', a new Artifact type of "Vehicle" was introduced. These Vehicles have power and toughness, but aren't creatures unless they are crewed, and each Vehicle has its own requirement for what can crew it. What this means, and why it is relevant, is that you can have a 1/1 Servo token pilot a Sky Skiff, then have that skiff pilot a Ovalchase Dragster, then have the dragster pilot the Aradara Express, then that train pilot the Skysovreign. Or whatever order you want to do it in. But it's still a series of vehicles piloting other vehicles.

* Much like the example in Comic Books, ''Film/IronMan'' uses this method while suiting up in his Hulkbuster armor in order to fight [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''.

* Much like the example in Comic Books, ''Film/IronMan'' uses this method while suiting up in his Hulkbuster armor in order to fight [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. Suffice to say, despite putting up a valiant fight it doesn't work as well as Tony hoped. The only way Tony can beat Hulk is by cheating, by way of a [[CallBack sucker punch]].

* The ''{{Mekton}} Plus'' expansion from ''Mekton Zeta'' has this as one of many, many options for its mecha. Of course, that expansion is basically rules for every giant robot trope in history, from [[TransformingMecha transforming]], to [[CombiningMecha gattai-ing]], to [[OrganicTechnology organic ones]], so this should hardly be seen as a surprise.
