* Every Covenant ground vehicle in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', with the Ghost, Wraith and Banshee being the most common. If you're on foot with only an assault rifle, they can be deadly (especially in the [[VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved first game]], which had no boarding). But once you get a vehicle of your own, they're often doomed by {{Artificial Stupidity}} and weak weaponry; the Wraiths are the only ones with weaponry that can consistently damage your Scorpion tank, and their projectiles tend to be slow and easy to dodge. Standout examples are "Metropolis" in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' where you take a tank down a highway and destroy about 20 Ghosts along with several Wraiths and Banshees [[TankGoodness in a row]], "Tsavo Highway" in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' where you take on almost two dozen Choppers and Prowlers around a highway overpass, and the air battle in ''3''[='s=] "The Covenant" where you alone in a Hornet can single-handedly destroy a swarm of Banshees with ease.

That said, Covenant vehicles are quite deadly in ''multiplayer'' if they have a competent pilot.

But once you get a vehicle of your own, they're doomed by {{Artificial Stupidity}} and weak weaponry; the Wraiths are the only ones with weaponry that can actually damage the light Scorpion tanks you can drive, and their projectiles are slow and easy to dodge. Standout examples are a level in ''Halo 2'' where you take a tank down a highway and destroy about 20 Ghosts along with several Wraiths and Banshees [[TankGoodness in a row]], Tsavo Highway in ''Halo 3'' where you take on almost two dozen Choppers and Prowlers around a highway overpass, and the air battle in the Covenant where you in a Hornet can single-handedly destroy a swarm of Banshees with ease.

** Many WideOpenSandbox games that feature enemy gangs (particularly VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto and VideoGame/SaintsRow) will also have "gang cars" for their street-level thugs to to use for street patrols or chases. These vehicles usually have [[PimpedOutCar very distinctive modifications and paint jobs]] [[RiceBurner but are, performance-wise, identical to their stock counterparts]].

* Played with in ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet''. Machine Calibers like the protagonist's are mass-produced, disposable machines that fit this trope. Their abilities as seen from a modern perspective are incredible, but this level of technology is average among the Galactic Alliance. However, when he winds up on a much less technologically advanced planet ([[spoiler:Earth]]), his Machine Caliber [[NormalFishInATinyPond is so much more advanced than anything else that it's an unstoppable superweapon]].
