** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': Rey and Finn's maiden flight with the ''Millennium Falcon'' has them trying to shake off two First Order TIE Fighters through Jakku's ship graveyard, dodging incoming fire and occasionally making sharp turns around crashed Star Destroyers. When Finn's turret is damaged and stuck in forward position, Rey decides to go for broke and dive the ''Falcon'' into a derelict Super Star Destroyer[='=]s ''turbines'' in hopes of losing the remaining TIE Fighter in the tight corridors.

** The Millennium Falcon in the attack on the second Death Star in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Complete with OutrunTheFireball for extra Tropey Goodness!
** Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon do this in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' during the famous asteroid chase scene. As Solo noted, [[TryAndFollow "They'd be crazy to follow us."]] Unfortunately, Darth Vader is quite a motivator for his troops and they dive in after him.
** And then again in the prequels, on several occasions.

** And then again The ''Millennium Falcon'' again, this time piloted by Lando Calrissian, in the prequels, attack on several occasions.the second Death Star in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Along with Wedge Antilles' X-wing, they fly directly into a tunnel going through the giant space station, pursued by TIE fighters. The tunnel gets rather narrow in places, costing the ''Falcon'' its radar dish at one point. Complete with OutrunTheFireball in the end for extra Tropey Goodness!
** ''Film/TheLastJedi'': Chewie and Rey, aboard the ''Millennium Falcon'', draw away the TIE fighters from the battleground above the Rebel base on Crait, mostly thanks to Kylo Ren's hatred of this ship. The starfighters are then shot or crashed one by one in a chase through the crystal canyons and caverns of the salt planet, including some very narrow passages where the ''Falcon'' barely squeeze by flying on its side.



* The winged flyers in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' were able to outmaneuver the Decepticon patrol ships by flying through damaged buildings. Due to their size, they would be more than capable of fitting into places those ships couldn't.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'': On Qo'noS, when the infiltration ship sent by the ''Entreprise'' is located by the Klingons and pursued by a pair of interceptors, Kirks flies it through the ruins of the Ketha Province until he finds a ''very'' narrow space between buildings, tips the saucer-shaped navette to the side and goes through, despite the protests of his teammates. So narrow, in fact, that the ship scraps the walls both on top and bottom. Though it's all for naught since it's stopped by more Klingon interceptors on the other side.

* In the original ''Film/TheTerminator'', Sarah and Reese are driving flat-out in a parking garage with Ah-nult just behind them. Sarah spots the wall but Reese is too distracted to listen to her (with the gunfire and all). Sarah slams her car into park, but Ah-nult doesn't react in time to avoid hitting the wall at top speed. Of course, being a cyborg, this is just a minor inconvenience for him.

*** It should be noted that an F-15C had joined the fight as well, and was in the process of locking up the Mirage, thus breaking the pilots concentration momentarily causing him to smash into the ground. However, since the "SparkVark" was engaged longer, and was actively maneuvering to avoid getting shot down by the Mirage, the credit went to the EF-111 crew.

* During ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'', Tash Arranda tries this through an AsteroidThicket with a Star Destroyer in hot pursuit, not unlike ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'''s scene. The Star Destroyer plows in after her, able to blast asteroids big enough to do it harm, [[spoiler: but was not aware of the space slugs.]]
