** 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''.)

It can sometimes be difficult to tell whether the kid is his partners [[{{Sidekick}} sidekick]] or vice versa especially if the partner is capable of human speech, but if they are main characters one is probably the [[{{Deuteragonist}} Deuteragonist]] and the other the Protagonist. The trope originated in dawn-time Anime and Manga and is still strongest in those genres.

* Invoked in ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'', when Kaji talks to Ritsuko and states that Shinji, Asuka and Rei are -sadly- the only ones able to pilot an Evangelion in spite of being only fourteen because their war mechas will only obey those three kids.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Shinji, Asuka and Rei are teenagers but they’re the only ones capable of piloting an Evangelion. Unit-01 will only obey Shinji and Rei because their mother is inside, and Unit-02 doesn’t acknowledge anyone other than Asuka. Later on, [[spoiler:Keiko]] is recruited because she's the only one capable of activating Unit-08.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', you can come across a young girl named Kat, wandering around the wasteland as a merchant with a huge Sentry Bot in tow. For those not in the know, a Sentry Bot is a 9-foot-tall tripodal KillerRobot with a gatling gun, a repeating missile launcher, and two shoulder-mounted mortars. [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/0b/Kat_and_Gus.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20151117130441 Here's a pic]]. It's never elaborated on how Kat got control of this thing, nor where her parents are or why she travels the Commonwealth alone, but you can bet that she's not coming into harm any-time soon.
