** This seems to be series tradition for Omega Supreme, the toy of the ''[[TransformersEnergon Energon]]'' has a head that can turn into a small robot itself. (The plug for it doubles as a spare, comically tiny head.)

** In ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'', the chest of Shurikenjin is designed like a throne that a smaller humanoid mecha sits in. It's usually [=AkaNinger's=] (the Red Ranger's) Shinobimaru mecha sitting there, but [=AoNinger's=] (the Blue Ranger) [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragomaru]] can swap places, forming Shurikenjin Drago; the various [=OtomoNin=] ("Ally Ninja") {{Mecha Expansion Pack}}s likewise take the throne in their unique configurations. [[SixthRanger StarNinger]]'s Bison King is a similar example, since it consists of a giant bison[=/=]ATV mech which is ridden and operated by a smaller humanoid mech named Rodeomaru. [[spoiler:Later on in the series, it gets taken to another level when the team wins the trust of the powerful but fickle [=OtomoNin=] Lion Haoh. This unlocks the Haoh Shurikenjin combination, which is such a large mech that Shurikenjin sits inside its chest the same way Shinobimaru sits inside its own chest.]]

* Many of IronMan's special suits are designed to be piloted by Tony while wearing his regular suit, like the Hulkbuster suits.
* TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye reveals that Ultra Magnus is this, explaining the years of surviving things most Transformers couldn't, as well as some inconsistent characterization. Turns out "Ultra Magnus" is a LegacyCharacter, and the original died ages ago. Chief Justice Tyrest, realizing Magnus' fearsome reputation, created PoweredArmor based on him that other Autobots can wear to create an "Eternal Lawman". Whenever Magnus has apparently died the bot inside actually ''did'' die, and reflexively hits a recall button that teleports him back to Tyrest so a new Magnus can be chosen. The current bearer of the armor is actually a tiny bot named Minimus Ambus, who not only wears the Magnus armor, but another set of armor inside that.

* ''GundamSEEDAstray'', as well. Initially, when Lowe Guele makes a ''150-meter'' Gerbera Straight (which, by the way, ''re''-redefines the {{BFS}}), he has to put his Astray Red Frame into a Junk Guild Power Loader (pictured above) just to swing it.
* ''{{Gundam 00}}'' has a surprise somewhere in the middle season: the MightyGlacier Gundam Virtue is revealed to be just a PoweredArmor of a smaller FragileSpeedster, Gundam Nadleeh. Dropping Virtue's armor off enables Nadleeh's pilot to play JudgeJuryAndExecutioner on his teammates if he's dissatisfied with them.
