** ''VideoGame/HaloWars2'' adds the Blisterback, a walking missile battery that can also transform into a plasma-spewing air unit. If you choose Colony as your commander, you can also build Skitterers, which are MiniMecha versions of this trope piloted by Lekgolo.

* Creator/JunjiIto's horror manga ''Manga/{{Gyo}}'''s infected fish ([[spoiler:and later, other animals and even humans]]) ride around on nightmarish metal walking machines constructed by the Death Stench bacteria. The tips of their spindly metal legs are incredibly sharp, being able to badly wound anyone touched by them, and if a vacant walking machine is touched by something, it [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impales its victim with a set of spikes and tubes to use the unfortunate soul as its latest 'energy source'.

One of the first organisms to appear attached to such a walking machine is a Great White Shark (a [[StealthPun shark tank]], if you will), which appears to be conscious enough to still menace and attack anyone caught in its path.

** The Colossus isn't a spider tank so much as it's a 4 legged tripod. The ''War of the Worlds'' influence is very obvious when you think about it.
** Also the Terran Siege Tank, which deploys stabilizers in siege mode but moves on treads. Spider Mines an Widow Mines are spider ... well, mines (they burrow and then detonate/launch a missile) ... not so much tanks.
