In the future, we will put guns on our trucks

A Big Brother Bully Trope to Cool Car, this is the kind where even four wheels isn't enough, you need the deisel fumes and huge smoking pipes and... well, you have the big rig truck that tends to be a mainstay in action movies and the like.

Examples of Big Badass Rig include:


  • Daimos in his Tranzer form.
  • The Mammoth Car from Speed Racer, essentially a train on wheels.
