Added DiffLines:

* A variation in ''VideoGame/OneMustFall2097'' that crosses over with BrainUploading: pilots in that game are 'chemically linked' to their robots. Instead of being ''in'' the machines, they are controlling it by remote of a sort. The neurons that would normally control movement in their own human bodies are instead linked to controls for the robot, such that the experience is less like piloting the machine and more akin becoming it. However, pilots do not copy nor transfer their minds to the robots; their brains are still in their own heads, and any breakage of the link between pilot and machine apparently snaps their awareness back to their body.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'': Megamind's giant robot has a huge open cockpit with his "Black Mamba" costume doubling as a mocap suit.
* This is how the giant Reptar robot works in ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis.'' Chuckie eventually takes control of it, leading to a scene where the robot scratches it's butt as Chuckie tries to yank a wedgie out of his shorts. Later on he uses it to beat another giant robot by imitating a Jackie Chan movie he saw on an airplane.

* In StanislawLem's ''Fiasko'', the Diglators are controlled like this. It briefly backfires when the pilot reaches to scratch his nose and ends up smashing his head projector.

* Upper body movement of the [[spoiler:Colossus]] is controlled by [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Kuvira]]]] in the finale of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. There is fine enough mocap control that she can manipulate the hands, as the trope image shows.

* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaAction'' had the cast dealing with a giant monster mecha controlled by Chef. When Chef tried to have the machine grab Owen, he was too heavy to lift and Chef hurt his arm.

* ''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]] (used by the mech's motion computer to gauge pilot intent in maintaining upright balance). 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.
