** In ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', the Promethean Soldiers can be seen driving human vehicles. Justified by them being advanced robots [[spoiler:who are being controlled by an advanced human-mad military AI]].

** Aside from being able to drive standard military vehicles like the Warthog, Master Chief can also steal lots of alien vehicles and have a fairly easy time piloting them.
** Regular USMC grunts are also seen piloting Ghosts and the like during the games.
** In the books, this is a plot point: when hijacking a covenant vehicle, the Spartan II's find themselves instinctively able to drive the various Covenant vehicles. It's hinted that[[spoiler: the vehicles are reverse engineered from Forerunner technology. This gives some sort of justification for humans being able to drive them without training: as per ''Literature/HaloCryptum'' and ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', humans were designated by the Forerunners to be their successors.]]

them, though it's implied that they've actually already had a lot of training and experience doing so (especially Chief, who's already been fighting the Covenant for almost three decades by the time we play as him).
** Reversed in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', where the Arbiter can drive human vehicles despite being a member of the Covenant.
** Regular USMC Marine grunts are also seen piloting Ghosts and the like during the games.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield}}'' series of team-based FPS features warring armies in various time periods. Players play as infantry with their choice of specific weapon and/or gear. Still, regardless of "kit" choice, hitting the "use" key will allow your infantryman to use vehicles. ''Any'' vehicle. Jeeps, tanks, [=APCs=], naval ships, subs, light inflatable boats, jet aircraft, and in the last incarnation, ''Battlefield 2142'', HumongousMecha. Never mind the fact that none of these vehicles have working canopies or doors, and some have no visible point of possible entry, your basic grunt can drive/fly/hover it with ease. In the series after Battlefield 2, entering a vehicle even magically transforms the clothing grunts wear into appropriate attire for that vehicle (i.e, flight suits and helmets).

*** Fortunately, you can still move the Titans in ''Battlefield 2142''. For certain values of fortunate, since idiots sometimes parked them over ''friendly'' missile silos, on top of any additional lag caused by a large, moving object with multiple other objects chugging across the map.

* The US Army is engaging in a standardization program so that most of their vehicles can be operated by one interface. Which happens to be a XBox controller. [[http://www.joystiq.com/2007/02/05/us-army-using-xbox-360-controller-in-future-combat-systems-tests/ Link]]
** At the moment the man-portable drone systems are controlled by Xbox controller, while the Humvee-deployed ones are controlled by laptop/PS3 controller. There are also iPhone-controlled devices that the militaryis prototyping, in an effort to invoke this trope. It helps that the control scheme is dead simple and takes 5 minutes at most to be proficient. And that's just the stuff that they'll tell you about.

* Averted in ''Videogame/LegoRockRaiders'' where cadets need to be trained in different fields depending on the type of vehicle you want them to use. Driver for land vehicles, Sailor for water vehicles and Pilot for air vehicles. Although to aversion only goes so far. Once a Rock Raider is trained in one field, they can operate ''any'' vehicle in that catergory.

** His latest TV incarnation, in the first ep. of ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'', was able to adeptly pilot ''a [[RuleOfCool rocked-propelled stolen Buddha statue]]''. Well, until Fujiko shot down its balloon-cum-float.
