* In ''VideoGame/PacManWorld 2'' Inky, Pinky and Clyde are all defeated this way.
** Pinky's mech is an odd example. The glass cockpit is coded to be a weak point, but you can't actually attack said cockpit without hacking (you're supposed to attack a different weak point), yet the glass dome continues to depress and crack anyway.

* Dr. Weil's final form in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero4'' has an orange pane of glass protecting his head. Break it and he blows up, though it's justified given that his head [[spoiler:is really the only "human" part left on that [[MechanicalAbomination cybernetic monstrosity]] he becomes]].



* In many of the VideoGame/MegaManClassic games, the various Wily Machines that Dr. Wily pilots are generally weak at the cockpit. In a few cases, such as ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'', Mega Man has to break a different part of the Wily Machine to reveal the cockpit, but eventually, this trope will apply.
* In the ''[[VideoGame/DarkwingDuckCapcom Darkwing Duck]]'' LicensedGame for the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], during the final battle with Steelbeak, the first phase involves Darkwing destroying the glass window he is sitting behind. Doing so rewards Darkwing with a first aid kit, which he may need for the second phase.

* The first fight with Agnus in ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 4'' is this. He sits behind an electrified glass wall and you must break through it by chucking flying swords at it.

* ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime'' for the {{SNES}} gives you this in your first boss fight against Shredder, who's in a mechanical construct firing all sorts of weapons at you while his [[{{Mook}} Foot Soldiers]] are distracting you (and the battle is shown from Shredder's point of view). While you can beat up the ninjas endlessly, the only way to beat Shredder is to throw said ninjas [[CameraAbuse into the screen]].

* ''{{Mechwarrior}}'' has this trope in the form of the cockpit hitbox location. However despite the fact that it has minimal armor and a powerful shot can in fact instakill any mech if you hit it the small size and difficulty of hitting it even under the best of conditions makes it almost universally a lucky shot if you pull it off.
