* 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.

* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Gundam AGE]]'': While having an ambitious plot can help your series stand out, this show proves that ambition can become a wash if you do not have competent writers in your writing staff. Thanks to its rushed and/or poorly-developed plot-lines and characters, ''AGE'' became the worst received (and [[{{Ratings}} rated]]) ''Gundam'' installment yet. Moreover, [[TheScrappy Kio Asuno]] is a prime example of how '''not''' to write a TechnicalPacifist into your story.

* ''Anime/{{RahXephon}}'' - At first glance, it seems to be an Evangelion imitator, but it's actually a SpiritualSuccessor to ''BraveRaideen''. It combines a musical motif with mesoamerican mythology to create a rich, alien atmosphere.

** [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]]: Franchise/{{Gundam}} is perhaps the archetypal example of the [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]] setting, with Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms [[UpToEleven taking it to]] [[MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness the max.]] Real Robots settings typically have the mecha as mass-produced weapons of war, and oftentimes they're ignominiously blown away, much like soldiers in war films. See also {{Patlabor}}, an even ''more'' realistic series given that it's in a non-military setting.

** [[TakeAThirdOption Mix N' Match]]: Who said you had to stick to just [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] or just [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]]? Dorks, that's who. ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' leaned more towards the Real side, but that didn't stop it from having ImportedAlienPhlebotinum, ThePowerOfLove and some awesome designs. ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was Super, but the mecha had power time limits and other drawbacks to them. ''Anime/PsychoArmorGovarian'' pitted a lone Super Robot against an army of evil Real Robots, but unfortunately the execution was less than impressive, and it has been all but forgotten. Even ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'', a popular {{Reconstruction}} [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] show had many [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]] elements.
