* ''Anime/StarDriver'' presents us with [[spoiler:Samekh, the King Cybody]]. Sure, it's a Cybody and thus a HumongousMecha like the rest of them, nothing out of the ordinary, right? Wrong. It's absolutely massive in size (probably several hundred meters in contrast to the regular Cybody average of about twenty meters), sentinent, can create an absolutely gigantic and deadly barrier around it and is able to go against its Driver's will (if it doesn't outright kill them on their first try to pilot it). That alone makes it much more dangerous than the already very strong (and generally alien) Cybodies, but it gets even better: it can revive destroyed Cybodies and has them fight for it like zombie slaves and, at full power, has the ability to travel through space and time. [[spoiler:Said time travel also requires so much libido that it will kill all living beings on Earth in the process.]] No wonder this thing was sealed away from the very rest by the power of four BarrierMaiden Cybodies.
** Aiyngott might also count. It's design is very outlandish in comparison to other Cybodies and it's able to MindRape its Driver, making it too semi-sentinent at least, and then there's this... ''stuff'' it oozes as if bleeding... that's also corrosive, it appears. And as the "god of eyes", as the name can translate into, it can also see the four maidens somehow.


*** If the Broken God exists, it's the ''ultimate'' mechanical abomination. The above mentioned objects and several other mechanical [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts Of Doom]] whose functions are just as freaky, dangerous, and inexplicable are considered to be part of this one entity by the Church that wants to restore said entity. ''Maybe'' they're just wackos, but if not, if all these things - whose individual functions are sometimes as terrifying of anything done by the actively malevolent entities - are part of a whole and can do something even bigger when working in concert, you probably ''don't'' want to know what. And if the result is an intelligent life form, you probably don't want to know ''who.'' If the Church is ''wrong,'' when you know what any one of these devices can do you'll still rightfully shiver at the prospect of someone getting a ''bunch'' of them and poking them with sticks. And somewhere out there is that vast cult that exists for one purpose: to gather the entire set, put it together, and throw the switch.

The worst part however is that maybe this scenario, despite the fact that it will clearly cause something [[EndofTheWorldAsWeKnowit really bad]] might be ''preferable'' because MEKHANE opposes another group known as "Sarkism" who are attempting to channel the power of [[AlmightyIdiot "Yaldabaoth"]] (yes, [[GodIsEvil HIM]]) through cannabilistic, incestual, mutilative and otherwise disgusting rituals. Said rituals give them powers of flesh manipulation which result in just about every form of [[BodyHorror Body Horror]] you can think of and they want to make everybody on the planet like them.


* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' has Adam. An artificial [[DeusEstMachina Fal'Cie]] created to oversee the project to prevent the fall of cocoon. At first it dutifully carried out it's mission but it gained a malicious will of it's own by being [[StableTimeLoop reprogrammed by it's own evil future self]] and as a further result of this paradox it's room became a tear in the fabric of time giving it time manipulation powers. This resulted in it being impossible to truly kill as it used it's powers to endlessly replicate itself so it's present at every moment in time simultaneously and creating a network so every version of itself can communicate with each other. It can only truly be destroyed by preventing it's original creation which cancelled out the original time paradox it created.
The major difference between Adam and actual Fal'Cie is Fal'Cie have mechanical bodies built around a [[PowerCrystal crystal core]]. Adam lacks a crystal and is thus is purely mechanical.

** There's also the Dark Age of technology abominations within the underbelly of the Imperial Palace. When Kitten encounters one, it's a massive, mechanized, betentacled horror... with a singing mechanical fish attached to the front that sings at him.

* ''VideoGame/{{SOMA}}'' is a transhumanist story set {{after the end}}, in which humanity's survivors built a settlement on the bottom of the ocean, and then an [=AI=] named the WAU (the Warden Unit). They asked the WAU to keep humanity alive, but the conflict arises when people and the WAU don't share definitions of [[HumanoidAbomination "humanity"]] or [[AndIMustScream "alive"]]. When the story starts, the WAU has been active for years, growing a [[OrganicTechnology biomechanical body]], and "infecting" the entire complex with it's biomechanical tentacles and it's "structure gel", leaving most of the facilities to rot from neglect due to the simple fact that they're not important to the WAU. The WAU isn't villainous, so much that it's an utterly alien mind that's incompatible with humanity, and it is trying to fulfill it's orders as well as it can, much to the detriment of it's "benefactors."

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-914 SCP-914]] is a mass of millions of gears surrounding a tube connecting two booths in which it modifies any item sent through it. It has five settings: rough, coarse, 1:1, fine, and very fine, which vaguely define its modifications between obliterating an object and altering it to the point where it violates the laws of physics. It uses no power, and observations of its interior show no equipment besides its gears. Like 261, it's intelligent, and a skilled chess player.

* ''VideoGame/BoxxyQuestTheGatheringStorm'' has the titular STORM - a vaguely angelic, weather manipulating HumongousMecha helmed by the game’s main villain. She claims to have found it floating lost in the “void” beyond cyberspace, and her plan involves using its reality-warping WaveMotionGun to erase parts of the virtual world and substitute them with her own. During the finale, [[spoiler:the GreaterScopeVillain ends up hijacking and fusing with it, creating the TrueFinalBoss. He implies that its power might be enough to let him break free from the Web and invade reality itself]].


** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1633 SCP-1633]] is a video game capable of learning player tactics, and eventually, will start attacking the ''player'', not the player character, using things like seizure inducing flashbangs. Its final boss, Kr'th'nar, is capable of leaving the game and affecting the owner's computer, can see them, use psychological manipulation, and can turn the computer back on. Whether it's a simulation of an EldritchAbomination that grew into the role, or the real deal trapped inside of a video game is unknown.

** He gets an [[UpToEleven even bigger]] upgrade in ''[[Comicbook/{{Convergence}} Convergence,]]'' becoming a full-fledged RealityWarper, but it seems to have come at some terrible cost to himself, such that he feels like a monstrosity and just wants to return to a more mortal condition.

* The ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'' as a whole has the God-Machine, which is an actual supernatural, god-like machine that has managed to impose itself on the universe and ensure its own propagation through mastery of occult physics and its various [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]]. It can craft alternate timelines, rewrite history, and build pocket dimensions all to secure its own goals, and it may have stopped the end of all humanity once or twice just to make sure it could keep building.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZTheReturnOfCooler:'' The Big Gete Star is an enormous, mechanical and tumorous planetary growth that attaches to planets, sucks them dry of energy, life and resources, and after consuming them whole drifts to the next. It started from a microchip getting embedded in Cooler's remains and went from there, gaining additional mass and technology from accretion until it grew into a massive engine that looks like a cancer cell the size of a moon.
