* GainaxEnding - Goes without saying.
* SquareCubeLaw: A 50-foot tall robot will more than likely crunch! under it's own weight, and normal vehicles can outmaneuver them very easily. How will you get around this?

* Piloted or Remote Controlled? - Does your main character pilot the mecha (like in Anime/MazingerZ, Franchise/{{Gundam}} and most others), or is he or she TheKidWithTheRemoteControl (like in Anime/{{Gigantor}}, Manga/GiantRobo and TheIronGiant) who controls the mecha from outside? How is the mecha usually piloted or controlled? And can the mecha act independently of its pilot or controller (more common in [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] series than [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]], by the way) if he or she is incapacitated?

* ''Anime/GiantRobo'' - Both an old live-action series (with Giant Robo being a guy in a suit) and later an OVA series, which was directed by the same director who did [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]].

* HumongousMecha - This one is pretty obvious, although you can use MiniMecha instead.

* If Japanese, getting Creator/NobuyukiHiyama somewhere in there would be great. If American, Creator/DanGreen as TheObiWan or TheCaptain is a good bet, as [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Koutarou Taiga]] demonstrates amply.

* ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' - While this series [[ItGetsBetter took time to find its footing]], the series became a classic for its badass action, excellent character development, and for having one of the most best handled anime love stories of all time.

* What do your mecha ''do''? Do they fly? Are they speedy and lithe, [[ImpossiblyGracefulGiant dancing pirouettes around bewildered tanks and infantry]], or are they clunky and landbound like ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' or ''Anime/FangOfTheSunDougram''? Are they mostly for space, like ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' and ''JovianChronicles'', or do they fight on planetary surfaces?

* ''{{Zeorymer}}''. The manga never seems to realize that the DesignatedHero is possibly one of the only instances where the {{Wangst}}-ridden ExtremeDoormat personality is actually more ''likeable'' than his "badass" self. The anime, on the other hand, fails to effectively communicate how the villains' {{Fatal Flaw}}s bring them down, which makes the robot look [[BoringInvincibleHero invincible and boring]].

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' - The TropeMaker for piloted HumongousMecha and in many ways the codifier for the genre. If the original series is too dated, perhaps check out the 2000 remake Mazinkaiser or the 2009 version ShinMazinger.
