** There is a single time that she uses her authority over the book itself during the final battle in ''A's'', making it stop with a single word (after Nanoha had spent the past episode and a half unable to even ''scratch'' it).

* This trope was very popular in British comics of the mid-20th Century; aside from ''General Jumbo'', mentioned above, there was ''Robot Archie'' (a crime-fighting robot controlled by the professor who built him), the ''Steel Commando'' (a WWII-era robot embedded with a commando unit), ''Danny's Tranny'' (about a transistor with near-magical properties and an [[HaveAGayOldTime unfortunate nickname]]), ''The Team Terry Kept in a Box'' (in which a series of pictures of football players are accidentally brought to life by a boy using his grandfather's magical stereoscopic viewer and soon agree to join him in the line-up of fourth-division Anstey Albion), and many others.

Sometimes the remote control is literal -- as in the watch used in ''GiantRobo'' by Johnny Sokko/Daisaku Kusama to transmit orders to Giant Robo. Sometimes it is figurative or metaphorical, in the sense that the mecha or creature [[EmpathicWeapon considers the child its sole master]] and obeys only him. [[AndroclesLion Helping said creatures]] or [[PetBabyWildAnimal raising them from birth]] are reliable ways to recruit the free-willed variants.

* ''Manga/{{Heroman}}'' has Joey Jones, the series itself is pretty much Creator/StanLee's take on shows like GiantRobo and this trope in general.

* The heroine of ''Gearz'', after receiving a coterie of robot bodyguards due to a postal error. As a GenreSavvy pop culture junkie, she specifically compares herself to Johnny Sokko (Daisaku Kusama's name in the English version of the live-action ''GiantRobo'' show called ''Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot''.)
