A series with one or more pieces of technology as a significant main character. Most of these are {{Mecha}}, of either the RealRobot or SuperRobot subclass, but it is equally true of shows with cool bikes, high tech body armor, amazing racing cars, and space fighter craft.

Almost any genre of story can, and has been, combined with the MechaShow. Any Japanese SciFi series is almost certain to feature one or more machines in a starring role, as well as most {{Steampunk}}, {{Cyberpunk}}, and even HeroicFantasy.

The most important part is that the focus of every episode is on the cool characters doing cool stuff with their [[MerchandiseDriven cool toys]].
