Mecha Show

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

A series with one or more pieces of technology as a significant main character. Most of these are Humongous Mecha, of either the Real Robot or Super Robot subclass, but it is equally true of shows with cool bikes, high tech body armor, amazing racing cars, and space fighter craft. Some also single out a specific subgenre called "biological mecha", where the mecha are organic and not mechanical, but otherwise behave much the same as your traditional giant robot.

Almost any genre of story can, and has been, combined with the Mecha Show. Any Japanese Sci Fi series is almost certain to feature one or more machines in a starring role, as well as most Steampunk, Cyberpunk, and even Heroic Fantasy.

The most important part is that the focus of every episode is on the cool characters doing cool stuff with their cool toys.

Examples of Mecha Show include:

Anime and Manga

Live Action TV

Western Animation
