List of fictional mecha

In some works of science fiction (and, more rarely, fantasy), mecha, giant robots, meka, or mechs are piloted or remote-controlled limbed vehicles. They are generally, though not necessarily, bipedal. The distinction between low-end mecha and their smaller cousins, the powered armor suits, is blurred; in general, anything large enough to have a cockpit where the pilot is seated is usually considered a mecha.

This article is a list of mecha shown in television shows, films, and other forms of entertainment media. In most stories in which they appear, mecha are war machines: essentially armored fighting vehicles with legs instead of treads or wheels. Some stories have them used for civilian purposes such as heavy construction work, police functions, or firefighting.
