** The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse loves this in general. If a book has "[[XWingSeries X-Wing]]" in the title (and even occasionally if it doesn't), expect there to be at least one of some sort. X-Wings are actually somewhat slower and less maneuverable than TIE fighters, but there are a few reasons why the canyon trick can work. TIE fighters, with those square wings, have greater air resistance, and those pilots who haven't trained in atmosphere often don't compensate for that. And an X-Wing can turn on its side and use its targeting computer to get through a gap only a handful of meters wide, while TIE fighters are almost as wide as they are tall. As ''Iron Fist'' showed, a TIE interceptor can pull off a similar maneuver due to it having a narrower profile than a TIE fighter.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn'' features this in an FMV cut-scene showing off the Orca VTOL attack craft. In-fact, the song used in the scene is officially called "Canyon Chase" by Frank Klepacki.

* ''TheTrumpetOfTheSwan'': "DANGEROUS CURVES AHEAD."
* Used repeatedly in the XWingSeries, using canyons, buildings, asteroids, and tall trees. Whatever's available. It helps that our heroes are usually in X-Wings or TIE Interceptors, while their opponents are either in more Interceptors or TIE fighters. Each of these fighters has a different profile, a different height or width, so some can slip through a gap by turning sideways while others can't. Also, [=TIEs=] and Interceptors have those large square wings, which get snagged by the wind if they make certain maneuvers in atmosphere. Some pilots can compensate for that, some can't.
** 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.]]

* In the second ''MortalEngines'' novel, ''Predator's Gold'', Tom flies an airship at street level through a moving city to lose the pursuit. One of the airships chasing him does crash.
