* ''SymBionicTitan'' plays this very straight. [[GeneralRipper General Steel's]] usual response to any threat is to throw tanks at it. This never works, of course.

* ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'': The Enforcer tanks' only purpose is to get stomped by the MonsterOfTheWeek so the heroes can save the day.

It seems impressive, since it is protected by a force field and (for whatever reason) all of its armaments are said to be thought-controlled. But after being stolen by Hard Drive, it's taken on a rampage so brief it never even leaves the facility where it had just been built before the SWAT Kats manage to take it out by frying its electrical systems, which results in the thought controls becoming disabled. And apparently there is no backup conventional control for it because once Hard Drive loses the ability to operate it with his mind, the million dollar prototype promptly drives itself into a wall and crashes uselessly.

* ''Anime/{{Gasaraki}}'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4b-haPATmI features a squad of mechs single-handily destroying an entire regiment of Main Battle Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles in open desert combat ]]. The Tanks and AFV's are helpless against the Mech's guided missiles at long range, and the mechs are capable of easily [[DodgeTheBullet dodging all incoming fire]] as they charge into close combat.

* Subverted in ''Anime/TheFiveStarStories'', where during the infamous [[GambitPileup Emperor Rescue Mission]] the extremely light forces, with which Mishalu Ha Lonn took off to Both, meant that [[WithThisHerring she had to rely on tanks]] to carry the day against three times hore HumongousMecha than she had at hand. The subversion lies in that while the tanks were clearly inferior to the Mortar Headds, and they were [[HeroicSacrifice destroyed almost to a man]], they ''did'' held the line until the [[GunshipRescue reinforcements arrived]], and the enemy ace [[HeelFaceTurn switched sides]].

* In ''Film/IronMan1'', Tony Stark (in his IronMan suit) gets matched up against a tank. He just looks at it, fire a dinky missile at it, and walks away. [[YouAreAlreadyDead Said tank then explodes]] [[note]] The missile flew down the tanks gun and, presumably, through the open breach and set off the ammo rack [[/note]]. The tank was able to accurately hit Iron Man and knock him out of the sky in the first place, and did some real damage (though the scene clarifying the extent was cut)

* In the first RuneFactory game, the main opponent [[spoiler:the Sechs Empire]] sends an armored battle tank to defeat the player. By this point, your character is strong enough to defeat the tank easily, at which point the opponent says "Maybe it was a manufacturing defect." At the climax, the opponent sends dozens of tanks to destroy your town. Then [[spoiler:the huge Dragon causes plants to grow and defeat the tanks by clogging them]]

** ''RebuildOfEvangelion'' has shown tanks deployed at various additional battles, including long-range bombardments and close-range running battles. They failed to have any impact on any of those battles.
