* ''Anime/{{Daimos}}'' is the very 1st one to have this in Anime, despite Kazuya sitting on the cockpit. Only the arm movements are copied, but how does the leg movements get copied too?

* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'': This is how the titular mecha is controlled whenever Guy performs fusion with Galeon, who transform into a humanoid figure of Guy, and he stands within, allowing too do punches and kicks.

* The third ''Film/SpyKids'' movie has a giant robot that Juni Cortez has to use against [[spoiler: Demetra]] in an arena match; by the use of a special suit, and moving in place on an open platform. Any movements by him are mirrored by the robot, although Juni doesn't get used to it right away.

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': America has "echoes," [[MiniMecha mini-mechs]] that mirror the pilot's movements. They're not seen often, but when they are, they are used to justify InstantExpert and FallingIntoTheCockpit, since in theory piloting one is the same as fighting normally.

* The eponymous ''IlivaisX'' has the pilot suspended from retractable cables on all four limbs, which also detect the wearer's movements. This is also aided by a thought control system that involves projecting one's soul into the machine. The other Ilivais units made by the Gaia Forces (aside from the Sho) are outfitted with this same system.

* ''SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'' mixes this with virtual reality with the Bioroids. The nerve impulses of the pilot are redirected to cause the Bioroid to move instead of the pilot's body. It's assumed that a similar method of force-feedback is also involved.

This usually comes in two flavours, free control cockpit room inside the mecha (or remote controlled by same) or a large apparatus that the pilot fits into with joysticks and such. The first type of control have the pilot wearing some kind of motion capture suit, or the room itself has a certain motion capture technology, and the mecha simply mimics it. The second type usually have a mechanized suit, or part of one, inside the cockpit, which is used to capture the motion AND hold the pilot in the seat.

* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' has a limited example of this. The pilot controls the mech using two to three joysticks, a throttle lever, two to four pedals, and a [[CoolHelmet Neurohelmet]][[note]] a limited BrainComputerInterface which is used by the 'mech's motion computer to gauge pilot intent in maintaing balance, and also to give a kinesthetic feedback on the 'mech to the pilot to aid in such[[/note]]. Melee combat is normally accomplished by aiming at a nearby enemy and hitting the "punch" button to let the computer sort it all out, but some mechs are equipped with a waldo which the pilot sticks his hand in to control the mech's arm, for for more finesse - a battlemech is unlikely to have one, but a [=IndustrialMech=] probably has one. [[PoweredArmor BattleArmor]] uses hand signals to control its weapons; to fire the built-in lasers, one must point their index and middle finger forwards, clasp their ring and little finger to their palm, and then cover them with their thumb in order to fire. The rest of the battlearmor is controlled by servo-motors to assist the soldier's movement, or by eyesight to trigger heads-up-display elements. While [[MiniMecha Protomechs]] are too small for a full cockpit so pilots need to use their neurohelmet and [[BrainComputerInterface enhanced imaging]] exclusively to operate it.
