* This is the strongest but slowest melee weapon option in ''Rogha Armor Force''. It had the most limited targeting arc (mostly consisting of attacking directly ahead in a single linear direction) and takes the most time to recharge between attacks, but makes up for it by destroying any non-miniboss enemy with a giant steel spike through the face.
* ''VideoGame/SLAISteelLancerArenaInternational'' features the Carro's 'pile hammer' melee weapon. As might be expected, it is a slower but more powerful close range weapon that attacks directly ahead of the Carro in a straight line. The problem is that ''SLAI'' is a third-person high-speed arena-combat mech-sim, and thus the pile hammer is not nearly as effective a melee weapon as other manufacturer's offerings.

* Captive-bolt humane killers, used by abattoir workers or vets in areas as an alternative to the bolt-gun type, operate on much the same principle.

The spike usually returns to its original position after each "shot" (though the manner is not always apparent). Also, the pile bunker's firing mechanism must be made from incredibly strong materials, or it will explode every time the spike strikes the target, similar to gun with a jammed barrel. Alternatively, it won't be able to penetrate a tough enough target.

A common weapon in the RealRobotGenre and other works, but not necessarily used by the HumongousMecha themselves, as there are sometimes hand-held variants. They work much like RealLife pile drivers, but rather than operating continuously (for example, hydraulically), they typically work with a one-shot chemical charge that drives the metal stake or penetrating spike of sorts, complete with SpentShellsShower and a [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]] mechanism.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' has the Dragonators, which are building-sized pile bunkers powered by steam and used to spike monsters that are large enough to be targeted.
