* FallingIntoTheCockpit ''can'' be done correctly, but sometimes it'll just come off as just plain contrived. It's a borderline DeadHorseTrope. [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] shows tend to try to [[JustifiedTrope justify]] it and [[RealRobotGenre Real Robot]] shows without {{Gundam}} in its title tend to avoid it.

* ''Animation/SpaceThunderKids'' shows us all why having a plot is important. Battle scenes are all well and good, but they have to be meaningful. Don't just use StuffBlowingUp to [[{{Padding}} pad]] a thin script. Also, {{Plagiarism}} is bad.

* ''CandidateForGoddess [=/=] Manga/PilotCandidate'' shows us why blatantly ripping off other mecha, such as [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]], and providing a weak GeckoEnding can be very, '''very''' bad for your show.

** [[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 ''Anime/{{Patlabor}}'', an even ''more'' realistic series given that it's in a non-military setting.

* Take into account the possibility of your work appearing in a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' game - don't go out of your way to include stuff for the writers of those games to fix, since it's not a sure thing[[note]]live action works such as ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' have only [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsXOmega recently]] made their debut, and ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'', despite having been out since 2000, has not been included in any game as of yet[[/note]], but do at least consider elements that could work with other staples in the franchise (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Manga/GetterRobo'', and ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'') if you think your work has a shot.



* ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}''/''{{Tetsujin 28}}'' - The very first [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] series (and indeed, the very first HumongousMecha series), featuring a giant robot and TheKidWithTheRemoteControl who uses it to fight evil.

* ''Anime/GetterRobo'' - The first CombiningMecha, and a very {{Troperiffic}} series that is the exemplar of the more psychotic variety of HotBlooded. Try the Manga or the {{OVA}}s.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' - Proves why flipping the perspectives of an already used idea is worth doing.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThunderbolt'' - Restricted on time? No problem!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'' spent so much time layering complications and additional factions into the setting that it forgot to tell the ''story''. By the time all the players got on the board, there were only about three or four episodes left.
