Episode 2 of Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (1990) shows the baddies pursuing the main characters in a convertible vehicle, a submarine/ship that becomes a quadruped robot at some point of the episode.

This reminded me of later appearances such as the tank towards the end of Ghost in the Shell (1995), or in other media the "Metal Gear" weapons.

What is the inspiration for giant quadruped vehicle robots?

    Not quadruped, but in Greek Mythology Hephaestus built tripods that would walk to and from Mount Olympus... Jun 10 '19 at 10:43
