In this case, they function as either extra "limbs" for zero-G maneuvering, or thruster mounts.

* Eldar Wraith units and Titans in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have wing-like protrusions sprouting from their upper backs that apparently serve as force-field generators.

Tau Battlesuits have similar protrusions that hold the thrusters for their jetpacks, adding to their {{Animesque}} feel.

* [[EliteMook Geth Primes]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' have a fairly large set of these, which serve to draw attention to them. [[GiantMook as if you needed any help figuring out which one was the Prime]]. In universe, these fins are apparently radio transmitters.

[[GiantMook as if you needed any help figuring out which one was the Prime]]. In universe, these fins are apparently radio transmitters. Later games have other geth platforms sporting them, including a single very thick pylon on Legion's back, and the geth rocket-troopers, Primes, and Juggernauts in ''Videogame/MassEffect3'' all featuring them as well.

* These are present on [[SuperSoldier SPARTAN]] [[PoweredArmor armor]] in the ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' series, and they are used to mount a number of attachments from [[InfiniteFlashlight flashlights]] to [[JumpJetPack boost systems]]. They are generally subtle, though many armor variants [[VideoGame/Halo4 in more]] [[VideoGame/Halo5Guardians recent games]] exaggerate their appearance.
