Would Zeus from Real Steel count? His Pile Bunkers have fists attached, but otherwise they seem to fit.

Anyone know what the original source of the term "Pile Bunker" was?

Maybe switch the picture to Douglas from Anarchy Reigns. The current picture has a lot of weaponry and the pliebunker on that mech is fairly small. Douglas has two large ones as his only weapons, so a picture of him would make it a lot clearer what a pliebunker is.

Make an Image Pickin' thread about it. I don't know Anarchy Reigns at all but your reasoning is sound.

This is at least partially, if not mostly, like a captive bolt pistol as used to humanely dispatch large animals (cows, pigs, etc). Just very large.

The Big O is not exactly the same as this; the pistons seem to power extremely powerful compressed air, rather than a physical bolt. He once beat up The Goldfish Poop Gang by picking up their van in one hand and firing the piston several times quickly. Rather than utterly destroying the van as it would have a robot, it just rattled them badly.

You're right about Big O, it definite uses compressed air. I remember at one point it missed the enemy and the blast hit a building behind it.

I forget, does this apply to jackhammers as well?

I think actual jackhammers should go to Improvised Weapon, but if it is used specialy... Anyway, this trope redirect is Weaponized Jackhammer.
