Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Like any good sci-fi concept, mecha come in all shapes and sizes. Most audiences hear the word and immediately think of Humongous Mecha popularized by Japanese media; on the other end of the scale, is the human-sized Powered Armor, more commonly seen in Western works.
But what about the middle ground?
Mini-Mecha are machines too big or complex to be considered Powered Armor but not quite humongous enough to fit in the other category. A telltale sign you have a Mini-Mecha instead of Powered Armor is the presence of a physical cockpit, typically small and exposed. Powered Armor is "worn", meaning that all or most limbs of it cover and move with the wearer's limbs. If the user has to use commands or controls to control the limbs or movement, they can be described as a "pilot" or "driver", and then you have a Mini-Mecha on your hands.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })As the above comparison may suggest, these are about evenly distributed between Japanese and Western works, though becoming more popular in mainstream sci-fi.
Compare and contrast Mobile-Suit Human, where the mecha is relatively small simply due to having a really small pilot.
For the low low price of 1.3 million US dollars this is now Truth in Television.

Kamen Rider Fourze has the Power Dizer, which stands at 10 feet tall and can transform from a mecha into a tank-like vehicle or a launch tower that can propel Fourze's Cool Bike into space. Until the Second Rider shows up, it often serves as Fourze's backup - especially once Jerk Jock Shun Daimonji reforms and joins the team, because the strength and constitution he developed to play American football lets him use it more effectively than anyone else.

Advanced Strategic Command has "mech troopers" that counts as light tracked vehicles (immune to razor wire and snipers, but stopped by anti-tank obstacles). They got twice weight and time and half armor of heavy infantry, fit in APC, still can conquer buildings and sprites look like weaponized power loadersnote  — of the Aliens sort, not Power Dolls. Several variants are armed with miniguns, better Anti-Air missiles than infantry, etc. They are no good as main combat units: slow, much more expensive than infantry yet lack its concealment and need fuel, while remain much weaker than proper vehicles; but sometimes combination of infantry and tank features as such is very useful — e.g. quickly capture a building protected by snipers without having to deal with whatever protects them first while in full view of said building.

Voth "exosuits" in Star Trek Online are upper-level enemies generally used as minibosses in Season 8's Dyson Sphere Ground Battlezone. They're about three times the height of the average Player Character and stylized like fat dinosaurs, with Arm Cannons, back-mounted mortars, and force field generators.

StarCraft has the Terran Goliath and the Protoss Dragoon, a rare non-human example. The sequel brings the Goliath back as a single-player extra, featuring the new Terran Viking, Protoss Stalker, and Protoss Immortal mini-mecha in starring roles.
The concept art depicts the SCV, the terran worker unit, like this as well◊.

Subnautica has the Prawn Suit, which is meant for underwater use. It can go to 900m deep by default and features interchangable arms and jump jets. The player is informed upon building it that users are meant to go through intensive training just to avoid the false sense of invincibility that comes from wearing it.
Its fanfiction adaption Aurora Falls takes this entry and gives it an upgrade to make it more combat-capable with standardized stasis emitters and heavy repulsion cannons, among other things.

The War Machine armor is this in the Ultimate Marvel universe and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.
The Parnell Jacobs variant in the main universe is a weird variation of this, as it's a modified War Machine suit with a Mini Mecha attached to its back.

The walkers and snake-mechs from Now and Then, Here and There are exactly this. However, their hatch seems to close only to protect the pilot as both models rely on direct sight (ie, no cameras; if the hatch is closed, the pilots will be blind)

The Hulkbuster Armor from Avengers: Age of Ultron takes a small cue from the Iron Monger, but appears to fit around Tony's base armor much like the piloting aspect of the TA's from Gasaraki. What puts it more into this trope than Powered Armor is the fact that its limbs are fully mechanical - the Hulk tore the suit's left arm off, but Tony wasn't maimed by that at all, and was able to easily attach a replacement arm.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, where at first you're introduced to them in the form of generic walker gear models that Snake fights and can hijack from enemies. After a specific story point Venom Snake gains the ability to specialize and customize a specific set of them which are dubbed D-Walker. D-Walker units can engage in a "Drive" mode that makes them more akin to the Guntank from Gundam as well as be customized for stealth, recon or heavy assault. All with options for a limited automated mode, where they will attack by themselves or come to Venom Snake's postion.
During a portion of the game Snake has Huey work with Diamond Dog staff to develop what can be only described as a mixture between a mini-mech & a small tank with the Battle Gear. It's never seen fully in action but appears to have similarities the Shagohod from 3 and Pupa modules from Peace Walker, just now notably smaller.

Mobile Frame Zero tends to feature small mechs as its main units in play. Since everything in the game is built from LEGO bricks, the game allows players to choose the scale. One popular scale has what fans call '7p infantry,' which makes a human around seven studs tall. This makes Mobile Frames anywhere between 10 and 12 feet tall on average—Word of God indicates that the canonical designs come in at around six to nine tons when fully loaded.

Bayonetta 2 introduces the Umbran Armor, large walking mech suits that Umbra Witches used 500 years ago to devastate their angelic enemies. Bayonetta (or Jeanne) get to use one freely when she gets sent back to the past, but can also use one as her Super Mode if she equips the Earrings of Ruin. Secret Character Rosa gets to use an Umbran Armor as her Super Mode automatically, without having to use the accessory.

Calculords has some alien-piloted mech suits, which are just under twice as tall as normal footsoldiers. They have high HP but little-to-no attack power; the Adamant Medsuit in particular is tied for the highest starting HP in the game. There's also the human-piloted Tinker Walker, which buffs all vehicles in the lane (itself included).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) series has several of these, the main one being Cody Jones' two Turtle X mecha. Others include the Foot's Shred-naught Units, and the core mecha used by Justice Force members Dr. Dome and Ananda. The Utrom Shredder himself uses what could be described as one in the episode, Exodus, where after his main body is destroyed, he is placed into a much larger, more heavily armed (literally; he's got four of them in this thing) suit.

RWBY:
The Black Trailer introduces the Spider Droid, a massive arachnid-shaped beast of a combat machine. Although it appears to function like the humanoid Atlesian Knights, the first manga reveals that it is actually a huge mecha that is powered by a tiny security robot.
The Atlesian Paladin is a vaguely humanoid robotic war-machine that can function as a remote-controlled battle drone. However, the torso is a cockpit that can fit an adult, who can control the Paladin directly from an internal console. While the Paladin is bigger than a human to be able to comfortably accommodate one in the cockpit, it's only approximately 2-3 times the height of a human, making it a relatively small mecha option.

The Front Mission series has its fair share of Mecha. The civilian models are called Wanderwagen (WAW), and are used for Mundane Utility much like Patlabor, rarely being taller than about 4 meters. Their military equivalent, the Wanderpanzer (WAP) or "Wanzer," is roughly 5-6 meters tall and has a notoriously dark, hot and cramped cockpit. Wanzer's are more akin to a Walking IFV's than anything else. By Front Mission Evolved however, a new template has upsized them to 8 meters and given them spacious and shiny cockpits, making them borderline Humongous Mecha.

Halo Wars introduces the Cyclops, a logistical-support mech which is based off earlier powered exoskeleton prototypes. Despite being designed for non-combat military roles, it is surprisingly effective in battle due to its arms being powerful enough to tear through starship-grade armor, to say nothing of the devastation it can unleash on Covenant ground troops. To top it off, there are also Cyclops variants equipped with ranged weaponry, one of which replaces the melee Cyclops in Halo Wars 2 note Originally, the Halo Wars 1 Cyclops was going to feature guns too, but Halo fans protested that mechs with machine guns weren't consistent with the feel of Halo.

In River City Ransom: Underground, Calvin of the Nerds terrorizes the Grotto Mall arcade with a Power Loader replica he ordered through the mail. He can't be hurt while he's inside the mecha, so you'll need to bust it up to force him out.

In addition to gun-equipped Cyclopses, Halo Wars 2 also introduces the Reaver (an anti-aircraft Chicken Walker used by the Banished) and the Skitterer (a Lekgolo-piloted Spider Tank exclusive to Colony's forces). Also, Sergeant Johnson in multiplayer gets his own version of the HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL Mark I Prototype Armor Defense System from Halo Legends (for more details, see the Anime and Manga section).

Unsurprisingly, Power Rangers has tried this on for size, as with every other mecha trope. The unpiloted Minizord (in Power Rangers Ninja Storm) may or may not count: it seems to be intelligent-ish and basically controls the combining procedure. However, there is also the Transtech Armor (Power Rangers Operation Overdrive), an oversized-but-not-Zord-sized car that transforms into a robot mode.

In Super Dimension Fortress Macross and its sequels (as well as the adaptation-compilation Robotech), the Zentraedi battle pods and suits are this, albeit scaled up for a pilot who is at least about 30 feet tall, making them one of the few mecha that can arguably fall into BOTH categories, depending on your frame of reference.
Later spin offs also feature scaled down Variable Fighters ridden like flying motorcycles that are used for racing.

World of Warcraft has the Goblin Shredders and Gnome Pounders, steam-powered walkers equipped with circular saws and pneumatic hammers. The player can control a shredder during several quests.
Patch 5.4 finally added a mount version that engineers can build. It's called the Sky Golem, and as the name implies, it also can fly. And pick flowers.

Obidiah Stane's powersuit in Iron Man, the Iron Monger, blurs the line between Mini-Mecha and Powered Armor. It is very humanoid but much too large for his limbs to extend far out from the cockpit inside the torso. In fact, because it has a literal helmet structure, it's not a stretch to say that Iron Monger is powered armor from the neck up, and the rest is mini-mecha.

In XCOM: Enemy Within, the MECsnote Mechanized Exoskeletal Cybersuits are partly this trope, and partly Powered Armor. The MEC rig itself is twelve to fifteen feet tall, with the cockpit module taking up most of the torso and the operator's head remaining outside of the suit. Operators can equip helmets to match their MEC, but the effect is purely cosmetic. Also note that the operator can't just hop into the cockpit as he'd probably be able to in most Mini-Mecha; the MEC Trooper is purely a torso with a head, and the rig is his/her Artificial Limbs, which explains why they're so agile despite their size.

GitS's sister series Appleseed (set in the same continuity about a hundred years later) has the Landmates, which in the larger 'verse are used for industrial applications as well as combat (in Appleseed Ex Machina, an off-duty Deunan once has to disable one piloted by a construction worker who's gone berserk over being fired). They're generally humanoid and "worn" rather than ridden or driven, with systems that mirror the pilot's movement. The pilot's legs go into the mech's legs, and their arms jut out from the torso under the mech's arms, which mimic the wearer's.

The Four Horsemen Universe: Human mercenaries' Weapon of Choice is the CASPer, a motorized suit of armor seven to eight feet tall with a Jump Jet Pack, integrated arm blades, and hardpoints for weapons including chainguns, MAC guns, antipersonnel lasers, and anti-armor missile launchers. They were designed by engineers at Mitsubishi after only four mercenary companies out of a hundred survived Earth's first batch of contracts, and initially just evened the odds against more imposing mercenary races.

Tausennigan mini-tanks, found in Schlock Mercenary. Designed for O'Benn, small enough that only the shortest human crew members (or smaller non-humans) can effectively pilot them, and mounting a pair of arms that haven't yet been seen in action (plus the tank cannon), they seem to qualify. On the other hand, they fly instead of walk.

Ghost in the Shell: The Fuchikomas in the original manga and film based on it, and Tachikomas from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, are sentient Spider Tanks that can be manned, but largely operate on their own (inexpressibly adorable) artificial intelligence.

Most of the mecha in Super Robot Wars Spin-Off OG Saga: Endless Frontier fall into this category. They're a fair bit larger than a person, and are generally remote-controlled or autonomous rather than worn or piloted.
They take it a little too literally too, seeing as they're really miniature versions of full-sized Humongous Mecha from the series.

Titanfall and Titanfall 2 have the Titans, 24-foot tall mechs, manufactured by Hammond Robotics, the original founders of the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation though it also seems that Frontier Militia can also make their own. While largely dependent on their pilots, some Titans such as BT-7274 can have an AI that acts as the mind of the mech. They're a common sight on the battlefield, but the majority of both IMC and Militia forces seem to be infantry (and droids, in the former's case), with the Titan Pilots being regarded as the cream of the crop.

The Hulkbuster Armor from Avengers: Age of Ultron takes a small cue from the Iron Monger, but appears to fit around Tony's base armor much like the piloting aspect of the TA's from Gasaraki. What puts it more into this trope than Powered Armor is the fact that its limbs are fully mechanical - the Hulk tore the suit's left arm off, but Tony wasn't maimed by that at all, and was able to easily attach a replacement arm.
Avengers: Infinity War makes it clear that the Hulkbuster is a definite mini-mecha, as Bruce operates it without further augmentation.

Iron Man's bulkier Hulkbuster armors have aspects of this, and occasionally may cross into Meta Mecha as well, since he's often wearing his standard Powered Armor inside them.
Black Panther built his own Hulkbuster to counter Amadeus Cho, the new Hulk.
The War Machine armor is this in the Ultimate Marvel universe and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.
The Parnell Jacobs variant in the main universe is a weird variation of this, as it's a modified War Machine suit with a Mini Mecha attached to its back.
The Gremlin's Titanium Man armor worked like this, as Kondrati Topolov was a 4'8" Depraved Dwarf, while the armor itself was 8'9" (the same size as Husky Russkie Boris Bullski's original suit), and he operated it from a cockpit contained entirely within its torso.
It's implied through its training unit, a motion capture suit suspended on a rail, that the original Firepower armor developed by Corrupt Corporate Executive Edwin Cord during the original Armor Wars was a Motion Capture Mecha. At 15 feet, its colossal size certainly had enough room in its massive torso for operator Jack Taggert to move around somewhat, though not as freely as the simulator would suggest, considering his head was still just under the suit's helmet. Later Firepower armors were of similar size as well.

Wrecking Ball is a Spider Tank controlled by the super-intelligent hamster Hammond armed with twin machineguns and other weapons, including a grappling hook to let it become a true wrecking ball. It also comes with an on-board AI that mostly serves to speak for it's pilot.

The "Wolverine" units from Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. They are described as "powered assault armor", but bulky as they are, fit this trope instead. Interestingly enough, they use the infantry sound clips instead of the vehicle ones.
And yes, interesting size comparison, as with this◊ and this◊ (Official Artwork folks) Wolverine is large enough to accommodate a small cockpit, but the comparison to its height is strange (bordering Super-Deformed)
The Wolverine available to the Steel Talons in the Kane's Wrath expansion is an even better example of this, as there's no question whether or not it's a piloted vehicle instead of a suit of bulky power armor.
The Mecha Tengu and Striker VX in Red Alert 3, both can turn into aircrafts and back.

Halo 5: Guardians's Firefight mode gives the Grunts/Unggoy their own Mini-Mecha in the Goblin, which is armed with a Needle/Focus Cannon, a grenade launcher, and a back-mounted Shardstorm/plasma launcher, and can disable nearby vehicles with an EMP pulse. It's also no slouch at close quarters combat, even if its pilot would typically prefer to stay as far away from the enemy as possible (which it can do with the aid of jump jets).

Halo:
Halo 4 introduces the Mantis, a 18-foot tall mech outfitted with rockets, a heavy machine gun, energy shielding, and an Shockwave Stomp that can destroy a Warthog with one hit. It can also pivot 360 degrees without moving its legs.
Halo Wars introduces the Cyclops, a logistical-support mech which is based off earlier powered exoskeleton prototypes. Despite being designed for non-combat military roles, it is surprisingly effective in battle due to its arms being powerful enough to tear through starship-grade armor, to say nothing of the devastation it can unleash on Covenant ground troops. To top it off, there are also Cyclops variants equipped with ranged weaponry, one of which replaces the melee Cyclops in Halo Wars 2 note Originally, the Halo Wars 1 Cyclops was going to feature guns too, but Halo fans protested that mechs with machine guns weren't consistent with the feel of Halo.
Halo 5: Guardians's Firefight mode gives the Grunts/Unggoy their own Mini-Mecha in the Goblin, which is armed with a Needle/Focus Cannon, a grenade launcher, and a back-mounted Shardstorm/plasma launcher, and can disable nearby vehicles with an EMP pulse. It's also no slouch at close quarters combat, even if its pilot would typically prefer to stay as far away from the enemy as possible (which it can do with the aid of jump jets).
In addition to gun-equipped Cyclopses, Halo Wars 2 also introduces the Reaver (an anti-aircraft Chicken Walker used by the Banished) and the Skitterer (a Lekgolo-piloted Spider Tank exclusive to Colony's forces). Also, Sergeant Johnson in multiplayer gets his own version of the HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL Mark I Prototype Armor Defense System from Halo Legends (for more details, see the Anime and Manga section).
According to EU material, very early iterations of Mjolnir armor more closely resembled mini-mecha than powered armor.

Usually, bosses in the Azure Striker Gunvolt Series put on Powered Armor in their combat forms. Aside from his own armor, Merak, one of the bosses in the first Azure Striker Gunvolt game, uses a floating Cool Chair to fight Gunvolt with, which actually has massive arms and a grotesque face. (he's too lazy to fight Gunvolt directly)

Ruckus from Paladins is a small goblin who fights in a repurposed mining mech named Bolt. Bolt is armed with miniguns, missiles, forcefields, thrusters, and is powered by the mind-stone of a war golem. Said mind-stone uses the mech as his new body and begrudgingly aids Ruckus in battle.

Batman has at least three of these in the New 52: One, the Hellbat, was made with the aid of the Justice League, and is capable of going toe-to-toe with powered combatants on par with Superman and was specifically made to allow Bruce to help the League combat Darkseid in a physical confrontation. The other one, which shows up in Batman: Endgame is a suit of armor specifically designed to allow it to work as a countermeasure for Batman to use if he ever has to fight the Justice League themselves. The last one was used by Jim Gordon during his Batman tenure, and grants super strength and a bunch of nifty gadgets to compensate for Jim not being in the greatest shape, not having the training of the Bat-family and for good PR given its police sirens and the like — however, Jim himself notes it looks idiotic and it resembles a bunny more than a bat.

Kamen Rider:
Kaixa's Side Basshar from Kamen Rider Faiz changes from a motorcycle into a bipedal, open-cockpit walker with tons of missiles.
Kamen Rider Fourze has the Power Dizer, which stands at 10 feet tall and can transform from a mecha into a tank-like vehicle or a launch tower that can propel Fourze's Cool Bike into space. Until the Second Rider shows up, it often serves as Fourze's backup - especially once Jerk Jock Shun Daimonji reforms and joins the team, because the strength and constitution he developed to play American football lets him use it more effectively than anyone else.
And now we have Kamen Rider Gaim and his Suika Arms, which is as large as the Power Dizer and can switch between a giant watermelon form, a flight-equipped mode and its main humanoid fighting form that ressembles a cross between a giant samurai and a small Zaku.
Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's penultimate form, Maximum Mighty Gamer, is a Cephalothorax patterned after Ex-Aid's base form, with him riding inside.
Kamen Rider Zero-One has the Breaking Mammoth.

Several mechs found in Girl Genius, such as the one Dr. Silas Merlot used to try and kill Agatha in Castle Heterodyne.
The mantis walker built by Gil (when he was a kid) and piloted by Zoing. Inscribed with "Arthropodi rule!" and "Who's the lab rat now?"
This piece from Heterodynes Armor Museum, identified as "Ol' Vorthang's Sunday best armor" by Mamma Gkika and "two-ton mobile armored death knight suit" by Agatha. This thing even got a built-in crown.

While Gundam is a Humongous Mecha franchise, several of the universes have smaller machines that are typically used for civilian construction (and, in a couple of cases, building contests and races). Sometimes they're given weapons, but this never ends well. Which is kind of what you'd expect when you try to use construction equipment against actual military hardware. Every time it's been attempted has been out of sheer desperation.
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray has the Powered Suit Guti. As the name suggests it's halfway in between a standard Mobile Suit and Powered Armor, with the pilot fitting entirely inside the torso.

Peni Parker's SP//DR mech in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, consisting of a round cockpit and Floating Limbs, is compact enough that at one point the main characters sneak into a fancy dinner by draping a tablecloth over it and pretending they're waiters and it's a trolley. Admittedly, it looks larger in other scenes, but it's never huge by mech standards.

The later eras of BattleTech include Clan Protomechs, which are two- to ten-ton vehicles intended to fill a tactical gap between battle armors and light 'Mechs. They deploy in the same manner as Clan Elementals, but are piloted by warriors of the short, slight-built aerospace fighter pilot phenotype.
After the Jihad, ten to fifteen (as opposed to two to nine) ton "Ultra protos" appeared, as well as alternate glider and quadrupedal chassis types. Their piloting systems are less cramped; according to the description of the Svartalfa, they can accommodate the extremely tall and bulky "Elemental" super-infantry phenotype. However, most pilots are still the fighter pilots.
At the same time that Ultra-class protomechs appeared, ten and fifteen ton Ultralight Battlemechs also made their debut. They're blindingly fast but mount practically no armor and have minimal weaponry.
Several notional battle armor designs also straddle the line due to their sheer size (an "assault" class suit masses two metric tons) or quadrupedal configuration which the pilots sit or lie in.

It should be noted that the match was more of a staged, Professional Wrestling-style affair, with more of an emphasis on visual spectacle and staged fight scenes. Whether later matches will follow this trend so that Professional Wrestling WITH MECHA becomes a thing remains to be scene.

Kingdom Rush series:
The first game has Hacksaw, a gnome piloting one of these that he constructed by himself. It can throw a bouncing sawblade that ricochets on enemies, and also has a hidden drill in its chest compartment that instantly pulverizes even the toughest of enemies.
In Vengeance where you play as Vez'nan's Dark Army, the Dwarf Kingdom has the MechaDwarf MK.9 Giant Mooks. These have a lot of health and armor (which makes physical damage nearly useless), hit hard, and sport a powerful Shockwave Stomp attack. Fortunately, MechaDwarf MK.9s are very slow and vulnerable to armor-piercing magic attacks.

Most of the Knightmare Frames used in Code Geass count more as Mini-Mecha than Humongous Mecha. After all, the cockpits take up a considerable amount of space, and jut out of the back of the devices quite noticeably, doubling as rocket-boosted escape pods. Those derived from Rakshata's Guren design feature smaller, more compact cockpits, though they still noticeably protrude. A few of the later Knightmare Frames - those derived from the Gawain (6.5m tall, as opposed to the 4m to 5m everything else) - dwarf most KMFs, but are still much smaller than most humongous mecha, and are the least common design.
However, the Middle Eastern League's Bamides, which are shown to be all but immune to tank rounds, are much more akin to Humongous Mecha, standing at over 11 meters. That said, they also ignore most of the human element, being more akin to giant tanks with vaguely leg-like hover systems.

Bandai once released the Ride Armor model kit for the Mega Armor Series, which can transform from Chimera Ride Armor into Hawk Ride Armor by swapping the parts. They planned to release the Ride Armor used by Vile for the D-Arts line. However, the latter was never released. Eventually, the concept is repurposed for the Super Minipla line, with both Chimera Ride Armor and Vile's Ride Armor available as model kits.

Domina: The American echoes are small mechs, about eight feet tall, and function more like really big suits of Powered Armor than traditional mechs. Their flaws are pointed out several times; while they are powerful, they are far from invincible, and they serve as tempting targets for the enemy. They are described as "superheavy infantry," and are mostly used because tanks are a nightmare in urban environments. The Americans are shocked to discover that the Dominite warlords are capable of fighting them in hand-to-hand combat.

Armored Trooper VOTOMS: The ubiquitous Scopedog is roughly 12.5' tall, but with its large head and compact body, it doesn't look it. It's still only just over twice the height of the average human, and when powered down, it can be scaled with a single pull-up. It's so cramped that pilots still have to duck down to get in and out of them◊.

During a portion of the game Snake has Huey work with Diamond Dog staff to develop what can be only described as a mixture between a mini-mech & a small tank with the Battle Gear. It's never seen fully in action but appears to have similarities the Shagohod from 3 and Pupa modules from Peace Walker, just now notably smaller.

Warhammer 40,000:
The term "Dreadnought" is used to refer to bipedal war machines larger than Power Armor but smaller than Titans. Like everything in the 40K universe, the trope is turned Up to Eleven so much that "Mini" is stretched to its limits. Space Marine Dreadnoughts, standing between 15 and 25 feet tall, are somewhere between walking tanks and venerated tombs, piloted by a mortally-wounded Space Marine in a life-sustaining sarcophagus.
The Invictor Tactical Warsuit brings the Dreadnought technology even closer to this trope - it's essentially a stripped-down Redemptor Dreadnought with the sarcophagus replaced with seating for a Space Marine pilot.
Ork Deff Dreads and Killa Kans follow the Marines' example and have their Ork and Gretchin pilots crudely wired into the contraptions. Deff Dreads quickly learn that while being hooked up in a big-ass metal can was an awesome idea at the time they're still hooked up in a bag-ass metal can. Gretchins however love being in a Killa Kan as it now lets them maul and wail on the Orks that were beating him before as the Mekboy who shoved the gretchin in there looks on with pride and joy.
Eldar Wraithlords are graceful constructs "piloted" by the soulstone of a mighty warrior.
Chaos Space Marines have their own dreadnoughts, the Ferrum Infernus, but are in worse shape as the means to make more, let alone repair the ones they have, have been long gone. That doesn't mean there isn't new ones as many Space Marines make parasitic sarcophagi to twist and torture the marine inside until he is rendered completely insane and turn into a Helbrute, a hideous mix of metal and flesh. For Marines who worship Slaanesh they have the Sonic Dreadnought variants of the Ferrum Infernus which gives them immense firepower but robs them of their senses and so only the most stable of the Noise Marines are allowed to be them. The last of these are the Chaos Contemptor Dreadnought, which hold revered Chaos Lords and are far less likely to succumb to madness (which is good because these are extremely difficult to make).
Similar to the Star Wars scout walker examples above are Imperial Sentinels and Eldar War Walkers, both of which are open-topped, though the former has an enclosed crew compartment in its heavier version while the latter's pilot is protected by a force field.
Tau Battlesuits are the smallest of 40k's Mini-Mecha, and range in size from just large enough to count more accurately as Powered Armor, to large enough to fit their pilots in the suits' chests. Since they are so much smaller compared to the other Dreadnoughts, the tabletop rules count Battlesuits as infantry rather than walker vehicles. The new XV104 "Riptide" model is a much bigger example than the other XV suits.
Imperial Knights, which aren't as big as Titans but much bigger than Dreadnoughts and Battlesuits. Knights are taken from Knight Worlds from the ruling classes who have an ingrained duty to protect others due to long term use of their Knight armor. Until they fall to Chaos of course.

Which, like the rest of the characters, can in turn pilot another types of mini-mecha sometimes found during the levels, Colour-Coded for Your Convenience depending of their type of attacks.

In League of Legends, The champion Rumble pilots a machine like this, which he build himself using junk and scrap parts. It's a bit of a walking armory, equipped with a flamethrower, a harpoon launcher, a mace and a rocket launcher, but excessive use of its weaponry causes it to overheat. Interesting to note is that in this case it's a literal Mini-Mecha due to it being built to fit yordles, who are very small.

The Ride Armor from the Mega Man X series, despite its name, is really a mecha roughly twice the size of the average character from the franchise with the entire upper torso serving as a cockpit and the pilot poking out from between its shoulders. Vile, a recurring boss, seems to have a thing for them.
An exaggerated example are Ride Armors used by Mettaurs (one of the franchise's Mascot Mook). In other words, mini-mecha that are even too small for a regular-sized Reploid to use.
On that note, the Gustaff from the Mega Man Legends series counts as a mini-mech as well; its pilot, Tron Bonne, is notably seen piloting this machine, which is almost as famous as the Legends-era's Blue Bomber himself. In Namco × Capcom and Marvel vs. Capcom the Gustaff has an open cockpit to show Tron piloting it, whereas in the actual games the mech is larger, about the size of a minivan.

Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle has Drag-Rides. These leave much of the pilot's body exposed, with the upper body of the armor positioned behind the pilot (with the arms following the movement of the pilot's arms), and rely on barriers for protection. They are heavily dragon-themed - the three basic models are the Wyrm (heavily armed and armored, with wheels for ground combat), the Wyvern (lightly-armored and specialized for flight) and the Drake (less combat-oriented than the other two, with special functions such as camouflage and radar).

The Legend of Korra has mecha-tanks armed with electric claw and disc launchers. They were built by Hiroshi Sato for the Equalists. In Book 4, Varrick gives the ones in Kuvira's army a major design overhaul, complete with flamethrowers and fully-functional legs and hands instead of treads and claws (making them much more agile). They're also smaller, to the point of being on the border between a Mini-Mecha and Powered Armor. By the end, Asami and Varrick also design a two-man "hummingbird" variant capable of flying.

The typical (i.e. Size 1) mechanized chassis in Lancer fits this trope, with most of them standing between 15-25 feet tall. Smaller mechs (i.e. Size 1/2) are closer to Powered Armor, while larger ones (Size 2 and especially Size 3) either straddle or cross the line into Humongous Mecha territory.

Mekton has these in the Roadstriker scale - while small Roadstrikers are worn as Powered Armor, larger ones (starting at about Medium Weight size) have enough room in their torsos to carry a full cockpit and have the limbs wholly mechanically actuated, though to get equipment in the torso other than the cockpit, it will either have to be built for a particularly small pilot, or else be a particularly large Roadstriker.

X-COM
Sectopods, the aliens' most powerful unit in terms of firepower and toughness across the series, is a bulky bipedal mecha-like construct. Despite the namenote given by in-universe speculation that there's a Sectoid pilot in there before you research the wreck, it's an entirely autonomous Attack Drone.
In XCOM: Enemy Within, the MECsnote Mechanized Exoskeletal Cybersuits are partly this trope, and partly Powered Armor. The MEC rig itself is twelve to fifteen feet tall, with the cockpit module taking up most of the torso and the operator's head remaining outside of the suit. Operators can equip helmets to match their MEC, but the effect is purely cosmetic. Also note that the operator can't just hop into the cockpit as he'd probably be able to in most Mini-Mecha; the MEC Trooper is purely a torso with a head, and the rig is his/her Artificial Limbs, which explains why they're so agile despite their size.

Pacific Rim: Uprising has Scrapper, Amara's homemade jaeger built from scrap metal and parts taken off of older, decommissioned jaegers. While larger than most examples on this list, it's still absolutely tiny by the standards of a normal-sized jaeger, being barely larger than the hand of November Ajax, the jaeger that chases it in its introduction. It's small enough that, whereas a full-size jaeger needs two pilots to handle the neural load of interfacing with such a gigantic machine (and likewise, a kaiju needs two brains to coordinate itself), Amara can pilot Scrapper by herself.

The majority of the Vital Suits from Lost Planet fall into this category, though as the game progresses, larger and more heavily-armored models appear.

On that note, the Gustaff from the Mega Man Legends series counts as a mini-mech as well; its pilot, Tron Bonne, is notably seen piloting this machine, which is almost as famous as the Legends-era's Blue Bomber himself. In Namco × Capcom and Marvel vs. Capcom the Gustaff has an open cockpit to show Tron piloting it, whereas in the actual games the mech is larger, about the size of a minivan.

Kirby: Planet Robobot features the Robobot Armor, a Kirby-like mecha with the ability to copy any power, just like the titular character himself. It is obtainable via defeating an Invader Armor or finding it docked in a certain area.
