* ''Anime/LegendOfTheGalacticHeroes'' has many on both sides. The [[TheFederation Free Planets Alliance]] mass-produces its own (five types have been observed: the phased-out ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Hard_Luck Hard Luck]]'' type, the more recent but mostly phased out ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Hyperion Hyperion]]'' type, the standard ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Ajax_class_flagship Ajax]]''-class, the experimental ship ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Airget_lamh Airget Lamh]]'' (that was supposed to be dismantled after the testing of the new technologies was completed but was pressed into fleet service due the losses at Astarte) and the prototype ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Triglav Triglav]]''), while the [[TheEmpire Galactic Empire]] mostly produces [[SuperPrototype single ships with state-of-the-art technology]] that are gifted by the emperor to individual admirals (the closest thing to flagship mass-production are the ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Forseti Forseti]]'', produced in three exemplars (with the second and the third having some light differences from the class leader), and the three-ships ''[[http://gineipaedia.com/wiki/Wilhelmina Wilhelmina]]''-class (with the ''Berlin'' modified with superior shielding, weaker weapons and large entertainment facilities due its owner being [[UpperClassTwit a nobleman too stupid to do anything but waste away, let alone actually fighting a war]])).

* A gigantic disc-shaped automated mothership is encountered in one of ''TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy'' novels. It was created long ago by one of the [[{{Precursors}} Precursor]] races as an exploration and terraforming craft. Due to most of the galaxy being unknown to the race, they equipped the ship with powerful weapons and defenses, as well as the capability to manufacture and launch fighter drones. When the ship returned centuries later, it discovered many other ships in the systems occupied by the race. These were later models that were not designed for combat. Treating them as hostile, the ship started a war and eventually wiped them out by using its built-in ability to replicate itself given enough resources. When first encountered, the humans have trouble defeating the ship. Understandably, they're horrified to learn that there are hundreds more just like that.

* ''High Charity'' in the {{Halo}} series is actually more of a mobile space station and serves as the Covenants "Homeworld". But as the goal of the Great Journey gets very close, and the Covenant is starting to break apart at the edges, the Prophet of Truth also uses it as his flagship.
