** The original Human Torch from the 1940s was a very humanlike android (complete with artificial, but working body parts) who fought criminals and later, the Axis as part of ''ComicBook/TheInvaders'' during WW2.

Super Robot shows are typically personified by "Love/Courage/Compassion/Friendship/Righteous-Anger/Insert-Positive-Emotion-Here Conquers All", and almost always have at least one character that is HotBlooded, though there are certain notable exceptions... mostly those directed by [[YoshiyukiTomino Yoshiyuki "Kill 'em All" Tomino]], to whom {{anyone can die}} is less a possibility than a life philosophy (...or at least [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer it used to be]]). They also typically follow the MonsterOfTheWeek format, especially in older shows, though as always there are exceptions. Super Robots tend towards idealism on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism and romanticism on the RomanticismVersusEnlightenment scale.

* ''Anime/{{Raideen}}'' (which later inspired ''Anime/RahXephon''). The first half was directed by the aforementioned YoshiyukiTomino; the latter half was directed by Tadao Nagahama, better known for the Robot Romance Trilogy.

** As far the terminology of supers go, the series is oddly realistic about it, and most associated tropes tend to come from the originals hanging around the likes of [[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]] and [[Anime/GetterRobo Ryoma Nagare]]. In fact, in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'', the most "super" robot of the cast is the Compatible Kaiser, filled with implausible weaponry that has little to no scientific explanation involved. Even the machines from the [[BeneathTheEarth subterranean world]] of "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La Gias]]" blessed by gods/spirits have a logical explanation to them!

** While no pilots, the [=TFs=] themselves [[CallingYourAttacks call their attacks]] in the Japan-original series. Attack calls were even added in the Japanese dub of ''TransformersAnimated.''

* SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo should be [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin self-explanatory]]. It's literally even ''called'' "The Super Robot".

* ''{{Film/Pacific Rim}}'' draws inspiration both from this and the RealRobotGenre. The Jaegers are Real Robots in that they're explicitly built by a military-industrial complex and time is given to the extreme amount of resources, logistics and support required to drive and maintain them. On the other hand, individual Jaegers are treated like Super Robots, what with their colourful and individual names and designs, being humanity's 'only hope', and fight using common Super Robot tropes like rocket punches, wrestling moves, unique fighting styles between each robot, the 'drift' and [[spoiler:the AbsurdlySharpBlade of Gipsy Danger being its ultimate weapon.]]

* The Knightmare Frames in ''CodeGeass'' start out as 100% [[RealRobot Real Robots]] but, depending on who you ask, the [[LensmanArmsRace rate of technological progression]] makes the main models creep closer and closer to what some fans consider Super Robot territory by the later half of the second season, though others are content to simply label these machines overpowered {{Super Prototype}}s.
