* Want something even sillier? Say hello to the [[Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Toa]] [[http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/Toa_Terrain_Crawler Terrain Crawler]]. A ''living'' being captured by Axonn, then turned into a Cyborg, all years before the events in the series. Despite this, it looks like one of the current Toa's masks. Needless to say, it's some unholy combination of Centipede, Train, APC, and Sea monster that somehow has a giant [[GatlingGood Cordak blaster]] attached to the top. Note that it's stuck to the ocean floor while the whole cast can swim. And have no real need for long-distance transporation anyhow.

** In ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheCapedCrusader'', SelfDemonstrating/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.

%%* You wouldn't think {{Superman}} would need such a thing, but he had a Supermobile. Created, like the Spider-Mobile, as a [[MerchandiseDriven toy tie-in]], the Supermobile did have some practical uses. Driving it, Superman could still be active in ordinarily hostile environments (e.g., in the presence of Kryptonite or a red sun.) [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/justicejogger.jpg The Justice Jogger]] is a bit more difficult to justify, admittedly.
%%** An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' featured Lex Luthor piloting something very similar to the Supermobile, but with his own logo and color scheme.



* Although ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's comics vehicles aren't usually visually distinctive (but see Film, below), his also [[WearingAFlagOnyourHead patriotic-themed]] [[HeelFaceTurn foe-turned-ally]] Battlestar has a red-white-and-blue Star Car. In the ''UltimateMarvel'' continuity, he uses a Captain America Tank for about three panels before the Hulk tears it apart. It is also stated that he has his own toyline of similarly themed vehicles.

* Wolverine used to have a Lotus Seven (aka [[Series/ThePrisoner Number Six's]] car) but it was never made to stick to a theme (besides "badass") and was quickly forgotten.

* Unusually for a "cosmic" villain, ComicBook/{{Thanos}} once had a helicopter -- [[http://www.the-isb.com/?p=76 with his name on it]]!'[[note]]Spidey Super Stories #39[[/note]] (Granted, it was the "Easy Reader" kids' comic made in conjunction with ''TheElectricCompany'' and not in continuity, but still....)

* A unique variant of this trope is {{Superman}}'s [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermobile Supermobile]]. Unlike most of these entries, the Supermobile is usually powered by Superman's abilities, not an engine or other technology. He usually uses it when there is something in the environment (red sun rays, Kryptonite, or what have you) that he needs protection from.

** However, the Action Master toyline had non-transforming figures with transformation-capable accessories. Optimus Prime's was a giant, cannon-laden truck called [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Armored_Convoy Armored Convoy]]. [[FridgeLogic What street you're supposed to drive]] that thing on remains unknown, though it'd be just the right size for [[TransformersCybertron Gigantion]].

The replacement Bluesmobile seen in the movie was a former police car that at first appears to be TheAllegedCar, but endures more abuse than any automobile reasonably should.
