* ''SteelAngelKurumi'' is a good example of the "metaphorical" remote control. For the most part Kurumi is a free-willed individual, but loves and obeys Nakahito, whom she regards as her absolute and permanent master.

Especially because in {{Pokemon}} you can capture Arceus, the CREATOR OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. * ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' and it's anime adaptation ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'': each Net Navi has an Operator who sends their Navi Battle Chips using a device called a Personal Terminal, or PET. The main characters are 5th graders at elementary school. * ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'': Maria Balthasar is explicitly that, a little girl that commands, rather than pilots, a giant, at least partially sentient robot, including being able to call on it's help in a battle that otherwise happens without the use of mecha, even indoors. Much of that robot's design, in-game history and abilities are very similar the aforementioned Daisaku Kusama with his robot, almost to the point of her being an ''{{expy}}''. ** ''Xenogears'' justifies this trope during Maria's subplot: [[spoiler:her father developed Gears (read:giant robots) that needed human minds to function, and after he was uploaded into one himself, Maria's mother uploaded her mind into Maria's Gear in order to protect her.]] * ''VideoGame/BioShock'' has a creepy version of this with its Little Sisters. They're very weak and are nearly defenseless, so they're protected by big daddies: 7 foot tall cyborgs in a powered diving suit. [[/folder]] [[folder:Webcomics]] * In ''Webcomic/{{Zodiac}}'', Cancer is a 13-year-old kid who controls a massive power suit with game controller. He designed and built the suit. [[/folder]] [[folder:Western Animation]] * ''WesternAnimation/FrankensteinJr'' is a Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon strongly influenced by ''Manga/{{Gigantor}}''. CaptainErsatz Frankie is a 50-ft robot with a cape. * ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': Villainous example: Willie Watt had first the remote control for, and later mental command of, a massive humanoid construction machine known as a Golem. He did ''not'' use it wisely. * ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': Timmy Turner. He has [[FairyCompanion fairy godparents]] that grant his every wish (that's not against the rules). Whether he uses them wisely is debated. Almost a trope-namer since in one movie he had a pair of magical remote controls, but loses one to the villain. * ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'': Hogarth Hughes controls a [[GentleGiant benevolent]] alien robot in by speaking ''[[YouNoTakeCandle very slowly]]''. * In ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', mutant escapee Marrow becomes this to "Rover", a reprogrammed rust-bucket of a Sentinel created by Polaris from pieces of Sentinels she destroyed. She becomes ''very'' attached to him, considering him her truest friend... to the point that, when he is required to sacrifice himself to allow the success of a vital mission for Xavier, she tries to run away with him and leave the rest of the mutant rebels to be slaughtered. When he turns back and makes a HeroicSacrifice, she then goes on to betray the rebels to the Sentinels out of vengeful spite. [[/folder]] ----

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

Added DiffLines:
* ''Fanfic/HigherLearning'': Evangelions can only be piloted by kids can synch with the souls trapped inside the robots. Shinji, Asuka and [[spoiler:Touji]] could synch with their Evas because their mother's souls were inside, although neither of them found out during the War. Rei could -barely- activate Unit 00 because a piece of her soul was inside it. [[spoiler:Kaoru]] is a strange case because he could pilot Unit 04, despite of being unrelated to the soul within.

* ''{{RahXephon}}'': Ayato is the only one who can control the titular PhysicalGod. And said PhysicalGod has RealityWarper powers to the point the series finale sees Ayato [[ApocalypseWow unmaking Earth with it]] in favor of one where everyone lives HappilyEverAfter.

* ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk'': For one or two issues of the original 1963 run Rick Jones became mentally connected to the Hulk, who would mindlessly do Rick's bidding. But when Rick was asleep the Hulk could do what he wanted, so he just left.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': Only Shinji, Asuka, Rei and few other children can pilot an Evangelion. Other candidates are driven to madness when they try. This is because [[spoiler:the Children are protected by their mothers' souls inside the robots.]] * ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': In the original timeline neither Shinji nor Asuka really knew why they were chosen as Evangelion pilots. Now they and Rei know it is because their “giant robot moms”; and thanks to that they can synchronize better with their Units.
