ITT we post our favourite mechs and mech battles. So on and suchforth.

My favourites:
Image
Shogouki. Could it be anything else? Granted, it doesn't have as many ways to cause large explosians as I normally like on a mech, but I still thing it's awesome.

Image
The A. S. Arbalest from Full Metal Panic. I love it. Two chainguns in the head and a shotgun ( which fires explosive rounds) coupled with the Lamba Driver system makes for one very cool mech.

Image
Deathscythe, from Gundam Wing. Yes, I am aware that the entire design is incredibly silly. Yes, I am aware that the scythe is an incredibly stupid weapon. But nobody can deny that it looks great.

Image
The A.S. Venom (sometimes called the "Codarl") from Full Metal Panic. Very stylish looking mech with the hair and all, and is seen to use a wide variety of weapons (including some sort of bizzaro-gunblade style weapon). Also equipped with a Lamda Driver like the Arbalest.

And the Tachikomas from GitS, of course Image

Now, as for my favourite battles:
  • Nigouki VS the Ryousanki in EoE. About the only mech battle I've sene which doesn't have random explosions everywhere, but that's made up for by the masses of blood

  • Arbalest vs the MP Venoms in Full Metal Panic. This is probably my all-time favourite battle out of any anime ever; we get to see Sagara really cutting loose with the Arbalest. Very fun.

  • Wing Zero vs Epyon in Gundam Wing. The entire damn series was building up to this fight, and it didn't dissapoint at all.

Well, that's my list.

I'm feeling ya on that Epyon vs. Zero fight.

I've always found the destruction of Idolo in Zone of Enders: Idolo to be particularly heart wrenching.

Gotta say that Canti from FLCL was awesome, and yes, he was a piloted mech.

I enjoyed Idolo from ZOE also, but my absolute favorite mech is Big O.

Image

You really got a sense of scale. It didn't jump around like a Gundam or an Armor Slave with relative ease, every step took effort. The sense of it weight led to incredible amounts of raw strength. And of course the piston punch is my favorite special attack ever. I'm only referring to Big O from Season 1. Season 2 lost a little of what made Big O thousands of cans of whoop ass.

I don't why it shouldn't. Still a mech, even if it is a very stupid one.

Yay, I'm not the only Big O fan here.
My favorite mechs are....

Glinda....she has a weapon that looks like a cross between a prog knife and a sword, and works much the same way.
Image

Big Fau, I'm an Alex Rosewater fangirl so how can I not love Big Fau?
Image

Tachikomas....you can't resist them!
Image

The MP Evas...what can I say...Evas with wings. Kickass

Image

Honorable mentions: Royal Gundam, Goliaths (from StarCraft) and Unit 00.
I heart Encyclopedia Dramatica!

Well, IIRC it's mech for isn't too bad, but when it's in it's dragon form the pilot is totally vunerable.

It's better designed than most Guymeleths for sure.

As much as I love Lord Canti, he isn't a mech. Wait; Naota gets inside and fights as him, so......Is he a mech?

I don't really have a personal favourite myself, however...

I understand that this particular mecha is a firm favourite among the older generation. Also, the people of Saudi Arabia take their mecha very seriously.

My vote goes to any of the real TAs in Gasaraki, taking into account what I said above.

I like to imagine that "Mecha" is just the way an italian pronounces "Mech".

"It's-a me, Mario! And my Mech-a!"

I lost all my pics, inc the eva pics folder i had, But I used to be a avid Mechwarrior fan (up until mechwarrior 3 or so) and I do like my heavy gear...
"I say Evamonkey did it himself. After seeing that Titus had more Eva images than him, he was driven into a fit of jealousy that led him to set this up in the hope of infecting everyone with a trojan that automatically rooted through their harddrives and sending him any images he didnt already have." - Space Penis
"some of the most intelligent people I know are complete fuck ups, and some of the less intelligent ones are incredibly interesting and promising." - The Eva Monkey
