* In ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'', Tsali himself was this to the Tsali Endoskeletons. It's later revealed to be a JustifiedTrope - the endoskeletons were built in the last days of the Demon-Seedrian War, with the Seedrians nearly wiped out and scraping together anything to slow the Demons down.

*** The Gundams used by [[ThoseTwoBadGuys The Frost Brothers]] though, the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Virsago and Ashtaron]], play this straight.

Instead, the Virsago and Ashtaron essentially split the Belphagor's gimmicks in half and develop them in their own direction.

** The Intercity Experimental, prototype predecessor to the Intercity Express of UsefulNotes/DeutscheBahn, had a lot of features that would only be seen in revenue service decades later or never. It also had a higher top speed (which is an EnforcedTrope, as trial runs in Europe have to be done with the top speed +10% to give a safety reserve)
** There were trial runs with prototype electric trains in 1903 on a military railway in Prussia that was equipped with prototype overhead wires for that purpose. The trains reached 200 km/h, but none of them ever entered revenue service and neither did the electrification system.

* The [[RareGuns Heckler & Koch G11]] is an experimental assault rifle which uses caseless ammunition, it has a slow full auto firing mode and an ''absurdly quick and accurate'' three round burst mode. It also looks [[OurWeaponsWillBeBoxyInTheFuture boxy and futuristic]] thanks to its unique loading mechanism. Unfortunately, despite being a huge success, the cost inefficiency has terminated its production.

*** This is actually a Double Subversion. The Ganymede model was indeed the Super Prototype of its day, being a powerful mecha in the right hands. These hands being those of [[SilkHidingSteel Marianne vi Britannia,]] nicknamed [[RedBaron "the Flash"]] for her incredible skill with the Ganymede, rivalling the later [[TheDragon Knight of One,]] Bismarck Waldstein [[spoiler:who used his [[MagicalEye Geass]] to cheat, [[NoSell and STILL lost.]] After Marianne's death, the Ganymede, being her signature Knightmare, fell out of favour and was decommissioned, having its weaponry removed and returned to the manufacturers, the Ashford Academy.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' features several super prototypes, [[LensmanArmsRace progressing in power with the times.]] Supplementary materials explain the backstory of KMF development, where they were literally putting pieces together just to see how it worked; the best subversion of this trope is the Ganymede, the very first KMF to be built. It has no internal power source, only batteries; no weapons, no closed cockpit and insufficient motive power to do anything other than harmlessly cruising. [[MundaneUtility It can make the world's biggest pizza, though.]]

* In ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' story "Pastoral", Roustabout escaped the experimenters who made him superhuman and killed the rest of their subjects. Team Carnivore, their apparent next attempt, came to track him down because they were not so successful, and their bosses hope to take him apart and learn the trick.

** In the ''Uprising'' expansion, the Soviet Reaper unit is a super prototype for the Sickle. While the Sickle is only armed with machine guns, the Reaper boasts [[MoreDakka automatic grenade launchers]] and a [[MacrossMissileMassacre roof-mounted rocket launcher]]. However, unlike the Sickle, the Reaper's legs can barely support its weight and will snap off if it tries to leap like a Sickle, after which it makes a decent stationary turret.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' adds the T-60 Power Armor, a step above the T-51 armor that was previously used, and was only beginning to be deployed experimentally (one of the Vault's military guards is wearing a suit of this armor in the pre-War sequence) when the Great War happened.
