In the original ''[=BattleTanx=]'', the player controls Griffin Spade, a tough guy from [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Queens]] whose fiancee Madison is one of those taken by the U.S. Government to a secure facility. After surviving the apocalypse, and armed only with an [=M1A1=] Abrams, Griffin begins a mechanized trek across the remains of the United States, blazing westward through Chicago, Las Vegas, and finally San Francisco, crushing rival gangs, rescuing other captured women, and forging his own army in his search for Madison. The two are finally reunited when Griffin storms the Quarantine Zone on Alcatraz Island, incidentally leaving them in command of the most sizable and least malevolent faction in the former United States. A port for GameBoyColor was released in 2000, which featured the storyline and gangs of the first game, but with music taken from the second.

''[=BattleTanx=]'' is a 1998 game for the {{Nintendo 64}} by Creator/The3DOCompany, which was followed a year later by a sequel that also appeared on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation. The premise is simple: [[GenderCide a plague has killed nearly every woman on the planet]], forcing the worlds' governments to cloister the surviving females away in heavily-fortified quarantine zones. In the mayhem, [[ApocalypseHow a nuclear war was sparked]], reducing much of the Earth to rubble and leaving the survivors to fight over the species' few females, who are now worshipped as "[=QueenLords=]". For reasons unexplained (save by the RuleOfCool), all of these tribes of brigands and freaks managed to get their hands on tanks. Lots and lots of tanks.

** The Marksman, a tank with light armor but a big-honking laser cannon. The vehicular equivalent of a ColdSniper.
** [[CaptainObvious The Laser]] PowerUp. Plasma Bolts are lasers that [[DeathInAllDirections bounce all over the place]]. Both have BeamSpam as their SecondaryFire.
