'''''Kishin Taisen Gigantic Formula''''' is a Japanese anime aired in 2007. The translation of the title is given as "[[DeusExMachina Apo Mekhanes Theos]] Gigantic Formula".

Set in 2035, mankind had experienced a massive holocaust called the Equatorial Winter after 12 heads resembling Greek gods have been uncovered which ask for [[HumongousMecha bodies]] with which to fight. The nations that have uncovered them, Japan, China, America, Russia, Italy, Germany, Britain, India, Egypt, France, Greece, and Venezuela engage in the "Wisest World War", governed by the United Nations, to unify the world under the rule of the victor.

Orphan Shingo Suwa earns the right to pilot Japan's Sxano-X (named after [[JapaneseMythology Susanoo]]) alongside Mana Kamishiro, one of the "translators" who can communicate with the stone heads.

!!Gigantic Formula displays these tropes:

* ActionGirl - Mana [[spoiler:and Kana]] are ninja.
* AfterTheEnd - the setting is after the Equatorial Winter which set the world on fire, literally.
* AirVentPassageway
* AllYourPowersCombined - Victorious Gigantics gain the abilities of those they defeat, and also the support of the defeated country.
* AMechByAnyOtherName - Gigantic Figures.
* AmericanRobot - the North America Empire's [[Series/LostInSpace Jupiter II]].
* {{BFS}} - a sword wielded by a HumongousMecha is big by definition, and this one has trident-like attachments to make it bigger still.
* BlushSticker - well, the animation character designer did work on {{Kamichu}}.
* CapedMecha - the Jupiter II.
* CaptainErsatz - Jupiter II kind of looks like [[PanzerWorldGalient Galient]].
* CombatByChampion
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan - None of the main child cast have parents.
* CoolCodeOfSource - Ucchie always has text flowing down her screens.
* DefeatMeansFriendship - Countries win the fealty of those they defeat, but Japan actually does make friends with one of them, China.
* EmpathicWeapon
* FirstChurchOfMecha - While no worship is demonstrated, the Gigantics all contain the heads of ancient stone gods.
* TheGameComeToLife - The tryouts for the Japanese pilot were staged as a VideoGame tournament.
* HumongousMecha
* ImprobableAge - Ucchie, Sxano's Chief Engineer, is 10. [[spoiler: Somewhat justified in that she is the product of Science.]]
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind[=/=]MindProbe - the Psy-Harmonize system, which lets Mana and Shingo experience the memories of other pilots and translators. Could also be considered MindRape.
* LatexSpaceSuit
* MindRape - Russia's Hundred Eyes of Argus attack.
* NamedWeapons - The [[JapaneseMythology Sword of Murakumo]].
* OffModel - the quality of some of the middle to late episodes slipped quite badly. While some actual errors were [[EnhancedOnDVD fixed for the DVDs]], none of the shoddy work was re-animated.
* OutOfClothesExperience - averted; when "harmonizing" they appear in their regular flight suits.
* PensieveFlashback[=/=]IntangibleTimeTravel - our protagonists experience the memories of other Gigantic crews in third person.
* SentientPhlebotinum - the OXII.
* ShoutOut
** It's quite obvious that Susanoo's design is heavily derived from ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'', color scheme and all.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS - Susanoo is written "Sxano" [[spoiler:because it is Onyxs inverted.]]
* SuckingInLines
* TokenMiniMoe - Ucchie.
* ToxicPhlebotinum - [[spoiler:Pilots bodies' are gradually taken over by nerve cables. This happened to Sxano's first pilot and starts to happen to Shingo too.]]
* TransformingMecha - The Minervas-XI turns into a giant cannon.
* TranslatorMicrobes - while spying on memories via the Psy-harmonize system, they can understand what the foreign characters are saying.
* VictorGainsLosersPowers[=/=]MechaExpansionPack - Gigantics gain the abilities of those they defeat.
* WeHaveReserves - battles tend to start with conventional support forces being decimated.
* ZettaiRyouiki - Ucchie is a Grade A.
