- In cutscenes, Mechon M72 are the general variety seen, and seem to be one of the main "shock troops" of the Mechon race. However, in actual gameplay terms, players are usually more likely to face Mechon M63 instead.
- During the Mechon attack on Colony 9, a Mechon M72 is seen eating a Homs resident from the victim's point of view.
