* Ruckus from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' is a small goblin who fights in a repurposed mining mech named Bolt. Bolt is armed with miniguns, missiles, forcefields, thrusters, and is powered by a crystal that houses a mysterious spirit. Said spirit uses the mech as his body and begrudgingly aids Ruckus in battle.

* ''Film/PacificRimUprising'' has Scrapper, Amara's homemade jaeger built from scrap metal and parts taken off of older, decommissioned jaegers. While larger than most examples on this list, it's still absolutely tiny by the standards of a normal-sized jaeger, being barely larger than the ''hand'' of November Ajax, the jaeger that chases it in its introduction. It's small enough that, whereas a full-size jaeger needs two pilots to handle the neural load of interfacing with such a gigantic machine (and likewise, a kaiju needs two brains to coordinate itself), Amara can pilot Scrapper by herself.

** ''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.

* Most of the Knightmare Frames used in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' count more as Mini-Mecha than HumongousMecha. After all, the cockpits take up a considerable amount of space, and jut out of the back of the devices quite noticeably, doubling as rocket-boosted escape pods. Those derived from Rakshata's Guren design feature smaller, more compact cockpits, though they still noticeably protrude. A few of the later Knightmare Frames - those derived from the Gawain (6.5m tall, as opposed to the 4m to 5m everything else) - dwarf most KMFs, but are still much smaller than most humongous mecha, and are the least common design.
** However, the Middle Eastern League's [[http://codegeass.wikia.com/wiki/Bamides Bamides]], which are shown to be all but immune to ''tank rounds'', are much more akin to Humongous Mecha, standing at over 11 meters. That said, they also ignore most of the human element, being more akin to giant tanks with vaguely leg-like hover systems.

* The Tachikomas from ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' are sentient {{Spider Tank}}s that can be manned, but largely operate on their own (inexpressibly adorable) artificial intelligence.
** They are also incredibly fast and agile, often chasing helicopters by jumping over the roofs of buildings or climbing skyscrapers.

* ''[=GitS=]'''s sister series ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'' (set in the same continuity about a hundred years later) has the Landmates, which in the larger 'verse are used for industrial applications as well as combat (in ''Appleseed Ex Machina'', an off-duty Deunan once has to disable one piloted by a construction worker who's gone berserk over being fired). They're generally humanoid and "worn" rather than ridden or driven, with systems that mirror the pilot's movement.

* ''Literature/TheFourHorsemenUniverse'': Human mercenaries' WeaponOfChoice is the [=CASPer=], a motorized suit of armor seven to eight feet tall with a JumpJetPack, [[BladeBelowTheShoulder integrated arm blades]], and hardpoints for weapons including [[MoreDakka chainguns]], [[MagneticWeapons MAC guns]], antipersonnel lasers, and anti-armor missile launchers. They were designed by engineers at Mitsubishi after only four mercenary companies out of a hundred survived Earth's first batch of contracts, and initially just evened the odds against more imposing mercenary races.
