* An Anime and Manga example without the mention of ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' would not be complete. They went out of their way to extensively use BrandX to use which parts were used for what. Henceforth the names like Mauler, Bifors, Remmington, etc.

* In the {{Marvel Cinematic Universe}} all of [[{{Film/IronMan}} Tony Stark's]] tech is designed with this in mind, the most impressive example obviously being the Iron Man suit itself. The first movie gives an especially good look at the mechanics of the suit, focusing on its development, flight control surfaces, assembly and weaponry and showing off just how much thought went into designing that thing.

* The detailed designs in both ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' and ''YoureUnderArrest'' reflect their creator's obsession with motor vehicles.

* The end of each volume of ''{{GUNNM}}'' features this sort of information on all sorts of props and elements of the Scrapyard.
* Each volume of ''SaintSeiya'' illustrates how each Cloth (a Saint's signature suit of armor) transforms to and from a statue representing the Saint's respective constellation. Many of these are implausible, mind you (parts have a habit of being ''way'' out of scale), but seeing how most of these designs are for one-shot villains, it's a surprising amount of detail.

* Arguably half the point of ''InitialD''. Aside from the fandom holy war of whether grip or drift is faster, the various car modifications are reasonably technically accurate.
* Due to its HumongousMecha influence, ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has these, with blueprints of the different [[EmpathicWeapon Intelligent Devices]] being shown in the last chapter of the ''[=StrikerS=]'' [[ComicBookAdaptation supplementary manga]]. There's also ''Nanoha Force Next'', a monthly feature in Nyantype Magazine that gives the blueprints and details of the new weapons and upgrades in ''Nanoha Force''.

* The Nintendo Power guide for ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' featured pull-out blueprints of the various vehicles used by the team, including details regarding their top speeds, propulsion systems, cost, and manufacturers. The guide also featured planetary information on all of the levels in the game. It had minor issues with scaling such as making a planet smaller than a satellite that orbits it.

Of course, this is endemic to any science-fiction series which might attract Geek fandom; ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', even many ComicBooks. For example, an entry in the ''ComicBook/OfficialHandbookOfTheMarvelUniverse'' describes {{Spider-Man}}'s webshooters: ''Because the fluid almost instantly sublimates from solid to liquid when under sheer pressure, and is not adhesive in its anaerobic liquid/solid phase transition point, there is no clogging of the web-shooter's parts''[[labelnote:note]]Sublimation refers to a solid/gas transition, such as when dry ice turns into carbon dioxide gas, and shear pressure (with an A) is pressure applied at an angle[[/labelnote]]. If only Stan Lee could have worked the phrase "anaerobic liquid/solid phase transition point" into Spidey's first appearance, imagine how well it would have sold!

* The OfficialHandbookOfTheMarvelUniverse (at least the earlier versions) is practically dedicated to this trope, as mentioned above. We learn how practically everything works, from Nomad's stun disks to Iron man's armor. And, as mentioned above, Spiderman's web shooters.

* Each episode of the latter half of ''{{Patlabor}}'' began with a narrated CGI intro (then a new innovation) showing off the specs of the titular [[RealRobot mecha]].

* The ''MobileSuitGundam'' series is ''so'' schematized that they have grades of model kits for the HumongousMecha that actually have working, accurate gears, pistons, and the like, with full range of mobility, incredibly intricate components, and removable armor plates to show off the inner workings. One almost has to wonder what would happen if an engineer simply scaled up the models to 1:1. Possibly [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=oVwbUljGs3g something like this.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eM6nUX57gCg Ahem... and they said it couldn't be done]]
