** [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Ork]] Deff Dreads and Killa Kans follow the Marines' example and have their Ork and [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Gretchin]] pilots crudely wired into the contraptions. While Deff Dreads quickly learn that being hooked up in a big-ass metal can was an awesome idea at the time but they're still hooked up in a bag-ass metal can. Gretchins however ''love'' being in a Killa Kan as it now lets them maul and wail on the Orks that were beating him before as the Mekboy who shoved the gretchin in there looks on with pride and joy.

** The term "Dreadnought" is used to refer to bipedal war machines larger than PowerArmor but smaller than [[HumongousMecha Titans]]. Like everything in the 40K universe, the trope is turned UpToEleven so much that "Mini" is stretched to its limits. Space Marine Dreadnoughts, standing [[DependingOnTheWriter between 15 and 25 feet]] tall, are somewhere between walking tanks and venerated tombs, piloted by a mortally-wounded Space Marine in a life-sustaining sarcophagus.

*** [[SpaceElves Eldar]] Wraithlords are graceful constructs "piloted" by the [[SoulJar soulstone]] of a mighty warrior.
*** Chaos Space Marines have their own dreadnoughts, the Ferrum Infernus, but are in worse shape as the means to make more, let alone repair the ones they have, have been long gone. That doesn't mean there isn't new ones as many Space Marines make parasitic sarcophagi to twist and torture the marine inside until he is rendered completely insane and turn into a Helbrute, a hideous mix of metal and flesh. For Marines who worship Slaanesh they have the Sonic Dreadnought variants of the Ferrum Infernus which gives them immense firepower but robs them of [[SenseFreak their senses]] and so only the most stable of the Noise Marines are allowed to be them. The last of these are the Chaos Contemptor Dreadnought, which hold revered Chaos Lords and are far less likely to succumb to madness (which is good because these are ''extremely'' difficult to make).

** Tau Battlesuits are the smallest of ''40k'''s Mini Mecha, and range in size from just large enough to count more accurately as power armor, to large enough to fit their pilots in the suits' chests. Since they are so much smaller compared to the other Dreadnoughts, the tabletop rules count Battlesuits as infantry rather than walker vehicles. The new [=XV104=] "Riptide" model is a [[{{Mecha}} much bigger]] example than the other XV suits.
** Imperial Knights, which aren't as big as Titans but much bigger than Dreadnoughts and Battlesuits.

Until they fall to Chaos of course.

** ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray'' has the [[http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/frameastrays/guti.htm Powered Suit Guti]]; as the name suggests it's halfway in between a standard Mobile Suit and PoweredArmor, with the pilot fitting entirely inside the torso.

* The Powered Guardian released by Kotobukiya is a mecha designed to be piloted by [[RobotGirl Frame Arms Girl]] or any other 1:12 figures (such as Toys/{{Figma}} and Toys/{{Revoltech}}). It is also compatible with [=M.S.G.=] weapons. On the other hand, it may cross MetaMecha territory if the unit is piloted by [[HumongousMecha Frame Arms]] themselves.
* Kotobukiya also released [[VideoGame/LostPlanet Vital Suit]] figures.
* Bandai once released the [[VideoGame/MegaManX3 Ride Armor]] model kit in the Mega Armor Series, which can transform from Chimera Ride Armor into Hawk Ride Armor by swapping the parts. They planned to release the Ride Armor used by Vile for the D-Arts line. However, the latter was never released.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'': At first you first introduced in the form of generic walker gear models that Snake fights and can hijack from enemies. After a specific story point Snake gains the ability to specialize and customize a specific set of them which are dubbed D-Walker. D-Walker units can engage in a "Drive" mode that makes them more akin to the Guntank from Gundam as well as be customized for stealth, recon or heavy assault.

** Iron Man foe Firepower pilots a colossal suit of power armour that requires him to sit in a cockpit in the torso and operate the limbs and head by remote control.

to:

** The Gremlin's Titanium Man armor worked like this, as Kondrati Topolov was a 4'8" DepravedDwarf, while the armor itself was 8'9" (the same size as HuskyRusskie Boris Bullski's original suit), and he operated it from a cockpit contained entirely within its torso.
