This is one of the easiest ways to name a work of fiction. Instead of naming a series after [[ThePlace a central location]], the name comes from the vehicle that is the focal point of the series. Extra points to those works where the vehicle doubles as the primary setting (ie a good deal of the character interaction occurs onboard), the MacGuffin, or some combination of the two, all of which seem to be more likely if the vehicle is a CoolShip (no, not [[{{Shipping}} that]] kind of ship) be it [[CoolStarship spacefaring]], [[CoolBoat nautical]], time-traveling, or an [[CoolAirship airship]]. As the title suggests, other vehicles, mecha, helicopters, tanks etc. also qualify for this trope.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and almost every other ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' title since, excluding ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket 0080]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam The 08th MS Team]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory 0083]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED SEED]]''. Those series still have Gundams, but the series/film names don't refer to a specific unit like most ''Gundam'' sequels.

* ''{{Vandread}}'' sort of. The main ship is called the Nirvana, but the series gets it's name from the Vandreads (made by combining Dread fighter-ships Van mecha) all of which are called Vandred (insert female pilot's name here), except Super Vandread a.k.a. Vandread Pyoro (Pyoro being a robot and neither a pilot nor female)
