** GoNagai's ''Anime/MazingerZ'' is the TropeCodifier; in fact, the monsters in this series are actually ''called'' "Machine Beasts (Japanese ''Kikaiju''). The sequel ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' had Battle Beasts (''Sentoujuu'') and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' had the Saucer Beasts and Vega Monsters.

** And the Battle Beasts from ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' already diferred from the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' {{Robeast}}s, bordering on a {{Deconstruction}} from the trope. They were capable of speech and independent thought, and they were DangerouslyGenreSavvy due to it. This resulted in a NearVillainVictory in the THIRD chapter.

A Robeast is a {{Kaiju}}-sized monster, more often than not the same size as the Super Robot that battles it, though Robeasts in Sentai and {{Toku}} may also start in human size, so as to be a threat on a personal scale, then [[MakeMyMonsterGrow grows]] through some form of AppliedPhlebotinum.

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' and the rest of the {{Toku}} genre revolve around this, with a different [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber suit]] MonsterOfTheWeek to challenge the heroes (and, in ''Power Rangers'' and ''Franchise/SuperSentai,'' their machines) as the driving force behind the villain's scheme. Every BigBad has his or her own way of making monsters, and [[MakeMyMonsterGrow making them bigger]]. They're sometimes the source of NightmareFuel, and sometimes NarmCharm. Sentience and whether or not they're AlwaysChaoticEvil varies from series to series.

* Drache, the first boss from ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'' seems to fit. [[AllInTheManual The background story notes that its AI emulates beasts' behaviors]]. Hence why the robot roars when you defeat it.
