* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'' features Guardians, which are extremely fragile in comparison to the [[EldritchAbomination Gauna]], run out of fuel quickly, can't work in gravity besides a couple specific units, and in general are coffins with a Bosen particle engine strapped to them. Even the protagonist's [[SuperPrototype Tsugumori]] is only superior in the sense that [[DifficultByAwesome in the hands of a pilot that can handle it's idiosyncrasies]] it can move very quickly.

* ''Film/IronMan2'' begins with Tony Stark showing congress the many real robot weapons programs around the world such as North Korea, Iraq, and other countries and corporations. All tests fail miserably and Tony is sure that no one will be able to develop mechs or suits of armor for years. The BigBad ends up taking the human element out and building an army of robot drones instead.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has the Dolls/[[DubNameChange Skells]], mass-produced mechas which serve as humanity's primary combat vehicles and come in a variety of different models. You can eventually own one of your own, but the costs of buying and maintaining one are extremely steep, and while powerful, they can still be blown to bits rather easily if you're not careful about what you decide to pick fights with.

It ''is'' explained that only the top members of BLADE get to pilot Skells, but this is more due to New Los Angeles's lack of resources then anything unique about the pilots.

** Taken UpToEleven in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', not only it omitted beam weapons to emphasize the seriousness, the setting of ChildSoldier goes DarkerAndEdgier compared to the past.

** Taken UpToEleven in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', not only it omitted beam weapons to emphasize the seriousness, the setting of ChildSoldier goes DarkerAndEdgier compared to the past. Fights are brutal, messy affairs with an emphasis on blunt weapons to crush the cockpits of the enemy mechs, and not even the Gundam is immune to the lack of supplies that force Tekkadan to scavenge parts from fallen enemy mechs and use retrofitted mobile workers as support units.

** Of particular note is ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam'', which is undoubtedly the [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness hardest]] Gundam show to date. Much attention is paid to maintenance and logistics -- to the point where some of the mecha in question undergo changes (including one near-total redesign) while being repaired, due to a lack of spare parts. The techs are basically MacGyvering them back together. There's also how they're actually used in the series - they're seen used in combined operations, supporting and being supported by infantry and other vehicles, rather than still being superweapons that handle their battles on their own like in the other series.

* The ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' series is also an example. As of [=AC4=], there are three types of robots: [=MTs=], extremely expendable fodder bots that usually go down in one hit, "Normals", custom-built giant robot built to spec from the ground up for each pilot, with modular equipment and parts that can be swapped out between missions (also known as old-style Armored Cores), and the "Nexts", Armored Cores with the latest advances in AppliedPhlebotinum. The fifth game in the series went back to Normal-sized mechs (if not [[MiniMech even smaller]]) but with scavenged technology putting them close to par with [=NEXTs=]. [[spoiler: Then ''Verdict Day'' revealed that the ''[=AC5=]'' universe is a distant StealthSequel to ''[=AC4=]'' and ''[=for Answer=]'', and that scavenged technology actually ''did'' come from recovered [=NEXTs=].]]
