* In his boss appearances in ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', ''VideoGame/MOTHER3'' and ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl'', [[FatBastard Porky Minch]] favours these as his weapon/vehicle/way-of-not-dying-messily of choice. It's effective, to say the least.

* In {{Sora No Woto}} the 1121st Platoon has a Takemikazuchi (A.K.A. [[FanNickname Tank-kun]]), dating to [[AfterTheEnd the Old Era]]. It's an impressive machine, able to scale buildings. It spends most of the series in pieces, but [[WrenchWench Noël]] manages to fix it in time to save the day. To put that feat in perspective, it's a [[CyberPunk supermodern]] piece of precision machinery, and she repairs it with the equivalent of a mix of 19th Century and 1930s technology. {{Gadgeteer Genius}} indeed.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the Nazis are the only ones to have been able to reverse engineer Ancient Martian war walkers. Several war walkers fit this trope, but the best examples are the Sturmschreiter, an eight legged behemoth, and the Panzerschreiter Skorpion, an agile six legged contraption built for city fighting.
