Opposite of super robots, real robots are tools of war and usually well armed, but fragile. Require a lot of pilot skills to be used effectively.
The Real Robot genre was an offshoot of the Super Robot genre. The First Real Robot anime was the Show Kidou Senshi Gandamu or Mobile Suit Gundam. In Real Robot anime and manga the robots are weapons of war much like tanks or fighter jets. They are usually equipped with scaled up versions of conventional weapons like guns and swords. Real Robot shows often use more "realistic" science than Super Robot shows.
