'''Basic Trope''': A gigantic humanoid robot.
* '''Straight''': Gigawatton is a robot as tall as a 10-story building.
* '''Exaggerated''': Gigawatton can only exist in multiverse void, because it's large enough to crush single universes with a finger.
* '''Downplayed''': Gigawatton is as tall as a 2-story house.
* '''Justified''':
** Gigawatton was built to fight against aliens that are 10-stories tall themselves.
** Gigawatton is a robot for made for gigantic humanoid robot fighting competition.
** Gigawatton was built for space flight, where [[SquareCubeLaw it's proportions]] matter less.
* '''Inverted''':
** Gigawatton is a humanoid microbot as small as a pinhead.
** MiniMecha, NanoMachines.
** Crossover with ''Exaggerated''! Gigawatton is a humanoid nanobot as small as a protein molecule.
* '''Subverted''':
** Gigawatton was designed to be a humongous mecha, but when it makes its first appearance, Gigawatton is revealed to be a {{MiniMecha}}
** Gigawatton is the AI interface in a PoweredArmor suit.
** Gigawatton is hyped up to the savior, but it [[SquareCubeLaw falls apart]] [[RealityEnsues when it takes it first step]].

* '''Zig Zagged''': Gigawatton has a mechanism that turns it into a HumongousMecha or a nanomachine at random.
* '''Averted''': Gigawatton is a RealRobot that moves on treads and is a realistic size.
* '''Enforced''': [[RuleOfCool Viewers like]] [[InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha giant mechas]]!
* '''Lampshaded''': "So, you drive giant robots eh?"
* '''Invoked''': The engineer is a huge fan of mecha anime and builds a humongous mecha to live out his dream of piloting one, regardless of how impractical it might be.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''':
** Gigawatton is sabotaged before it can even be used.
** Building Gigawatton is found to be cost-ineffective and impractical and the project is scrapped.
* '''Discussed''': Oh, they look cool, but won't they tip over? And they're impossible to hide, unless you can get some honest-to-[[OhMyGods Gods]], working Adaptive Camo. Really, the only thing they got going for them is that they can negotiate terrain better than wheeled or tracked vehicles. I say just stick some [[SpiderTank bug legs on a run-of-the-mill tank]].
* '''Conversed''':
** "But they look so damn cool!" "You really are a dreamer if you think these metal giants are actually going somewhere! Spider tanks are the way of the future!" "But they [[PunctuatedForEmphasis look. So. Damn. COOL!]]" "The men can thank [[CreatorWorship the Writer]] that I am the one who spends the budget, not you. And they should pray to the Artist that it stays that way; Less of them will die."
** "Oh, Mr. Realistic wants to make a [[SpiderTank Spider Tank!]] Sure, let's toss one of these tanks and a mecha in a room. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill We'll see who will be reduced to dust.]]
* '''Deconstructed''':
** SquareCubeLaw
** Alternatively: The mecha is very powerful and effective, but it causes tremendous collateral damage due to its large size and huge weapons.
** It's prohibitively expensive to build, equip, run, and maintain even one.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** The cube-square victim is upgraded with {{unobtainium}} and becomes effective.
** The DestructiveSavior robot is given new control software that makes it much safer.
** The pilot of Gigawattron makes a point of [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom punching his foes out of the city]] to ensure they're in a collateral free-zone before the fight.
** Things are so far past the GodzillaThreshold that the cost no longer matters.
