Most of the time a CoolCar; if the character isn't supposed to be particularly enthusiastic about cars, or fabulously wealthy, or have specialized transportation needs it counts as an ImprobablyCoolCar. For a specific type of Thememobile, see {{Faceship}}. Not to be confused with the [[IncrediblyLamePun Pope Mobile]], although it is an example of this trope. May overlap with SignatureTeamTransport. Most of the [[MerchandiseDriven toyetic]] live-action 1960s TropeMakers were customized by George Barris, the only leading Southern California-based customizer/showrod builder willing to work to Hollywood's hurry-up-and-wait production schedule more than once.

** There are multiple "bathtub" model Fantasticars out there that have survived the Fantastic Four's post-Secret Wars sabbatical. One key perk Maria Hill used to get Ben Grimm to sign on with SHIELD in 2016 was a classic "bathtub" Fantasticar as his "company" ride.

** The Spider-Mobile concept was mocked relentlessly in-universe from its very first mention. It was proposed to Spidey by a sleazy pair of ad men [[InkSuitActor who looked suspiciously like editors Stan Lee and Roy Thomas]] and his immediate reaction was to declare "the idea of a Spider-Mobile is first-class '''dumb'''."

** In ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheCapedCrusader'', ComicBook/TheJoker, Two-Face, AND ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} have these. Others probably do as well, given the slightly... odd... nature of the piece, however these are the only ones we're shown.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' features {{The Flash}}mobile, which is actually just a pimped-out van he bought with endorsement money he made appearing in commercials. As GreenLantern points out, it's completely ridiculous. Somewhat justified, though, considering its real purpose isn't getting around... at least not in that sense...
