I thought he was asking for something ala Go Nagai, his creations, Mazinger
Z, Great Mazinger, Getter Robo, UFO Grendizer, were some of the first Super
Robots out there. Most of these seem almost fantasy like with impossible
transformations (the Getter Robo combination and Great Mazingers Scrander
Dash both of which seem to happen almost magically) etc. All had some fancy
base and required a very ornate launch sequence. And if it's Go Nagai, the
Robot has to have some form of Rocket Punch! Also, Go Nagai's mecha
sometimes fought more than one baddie per episode and some baddies took a
longer time, in this case, the final weapon was used only on the last and
often strongest one.
