    Robots become twice as cool when they put on sunglasses.

    What happens to their cool when they use those glasses like a tomahawk

    It's also cool when there's several vehicles and then they connect up to become a robot.

    You're all wow this is fun but how are they gonna punch that way bigger monster? And then they become a robot and you're like, ah, ok, now I understand. And then the punching begins.

    Interesting how the "worst girl" ended up with our protagonist.

    Reynolds.... When will you accept that you are wrong and history will look shamefully upon you.

    She ended up with the other worst character, that's all.

    But...nobody ended up with Tenchi's dad?
    The bigger something is, the bigger the punch is.

    I don't know, I've seen some tiny teenage girls in anime deliver some pretty big punches.

    Ladd Russo's English voice actor just goes for it.

    In terms of the giant robot talk, I think the Full Metal Panic robots are pretty small comparatively? I haven't seen it in forever though, but I seem to remember them only being a few stories tall or something. Also that one season he spent piloting a tricked out mascot costume.

    No, that's small.

    Small: Knight Sabers, Sakura Wars' Koubus
    Medium: Patlabors, Exo-Squads, Macross Variables
    Large: Gundams
    Intergalactic: Gurren Lagaan, Gunbuster, Sanger Zonvolt

    I consider Code Geass robots to be medium size. They're definitely bigger than humans and most military vehicles aside from carriers and such, but not so big that they can't navigate a city without ruining cars and buildings

    Small= smaller than a human, a haro or a roombas
    Medium=roughly human sized, androids etc.
    Giant= everything bigger than a human, what are you basing your scale on if not humans???

    The problem with your scale is giant can range from like 12.5 feet for a scopedog to billions of light years.

    By my scale, they start getting large when you need an entire crew to repair and maintain the things. A single person can maintain a Knight Saber or a Patlabor, you need a squad to maintain a Gundam or an Eva.

    the patlabors have a dedicated maintenance team, that's like half the cast on the base

    Well, it's definitely ideal... but you usually only see one or two guys working on mechs that size in other shows.


    The Magic Knight Rayearth cast are lucky, don't have to maintain magical entities.

    I’m just saying we’re mostly discussing pilotable robots so I would probably start the small scale at the scopedog. Medium would be like a standard gundam or Mazinger Z. I don’t have a good example of large from anime but like Pacific Rim Jaegers. Giant would probably start with Gunbuster. And then yeah the TTGL is off in it’s own category way farther down the line.

    I refuse to live in a world where patlabors are considered too small to be giant fucking robots
    they need to be carried around on a humongous 4-lane-wide transport truck!

    you can do this but you have to say "small giant robot" vs. "large giant robot"
    "small robot" vs. "giant robot" without the qualifier includes the full range of sizes including non-giant robots

    this is a nonsense metric, the number of maintenance personnel is rarely something the story actually cares at all to illustrate beyond "there's a maintenance guy in this scene to convey some information or banter with the pilot" even in the more real-robot-y giant robot stories

    yes I am choosing to die on this giant robot-shaped hill today

    The scopedog falls around medium to me, but they're not that much bigger than the Koubu.

    There was that one show about office-worker giant robot pilots that had a whole full maintenance team with trucks and everything that had to put together all the parts every time.

    Then halfway through the show they made the parts be able to fly together on their own and later there's a shot of the maintenance guys going "So do they still need us now that the parts can fly are we gonna get fired?"

    you lot contend that a fictional robot that's the size of a semi truck and trailer or small house is not a "giant" robot because much larger fictional robots exist???

    Well, they become marginally less impressive if you have robots that can crush them underfoot. You have to quantify things somehow.

    they typically do not exist in the same fiction! but also that's not relevant to whether they have the admittedly broad property of being large!
