* Shows up in several of the space rail shooter missions in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', likely as a reference to some of the [[TheEmpireStrikesBack source material]].

* 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.]]

* Not necessarily a chase scene, but pretty much every ''AceCombat'' game requires the player to do this for some reason. Sometimes, there are enemy planes or helicopters skulking in the canyons or other narrow passageways or tunnels, just waiting to achieve missile lock.

Sometimes, just fighting head to head in the air isn't enough. When a creator ''really'' wants to showcase the AcePilot's skills ''and'' keep the audience on the edge of their seats, he'll have the character lead the bad guys on a high speed chase through a very narrow area.

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' features this a couple times. Once with no chase in a training stage and then with a chase in the climax.
* The climax of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' involved Jumba, Pleakley, Nani, and Stitch flying in a giant spaceship to save Lilo from [[TheDragon Gantu]], who accidentally captured her while attempting to capture Stitch (he escaped), by chasing him down a series of volcano-filled canyons located all over Hawaii. Originally, they were going to go after Gantu by chasing him down with a stolen passenger jet into the capital city of Honolulu, but due to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, the entire scene had to be reanimated into what we see in the final version of the film.

* In ''Film/SpiderMan3'', during the first fight between Peter Parker and Harry Osborn as "New Goblin", Peter tries to escape by webslinging into a narrow gap between two buildings. Harry manages to follow by turning his SkySurfing glider sideways (unlike his father's, his is no bigger than a snow surf), but he has a hard time avoiding obstacles and scrapping the walls.

* In the ''CrimsonSkies'' wargame, one of the maps supplied is of a canyon, with several hexes marked as impassable. Planning your move wrong so you crash into one of these can be surprisingly easy.
* Altitude in ''[[Warhammer40000 Aeronautica Imperialis]]'' is rated on a scale of 1 to 9, with 0 being the ground and 10 being orbit. Seriously tall mountains can reach altitude 6, which allows for the construction of maps designed for this fairly easily.

%%* this trope happens at least twice in ''Film/TheBlueMax''.

%%* this * This trope happens at least twice in ''Film/TheBlueMax''.''Film/TheBlueMax'', once where anti-hero Bruno Stachel leads a naive young wingmate to his doom in a chase-game of progressively more dangerous low-level stunting, near tall buildings and inconvenient telegraph wires. Other films about First World War aerial combat have used this to spectacular effect; ''Film/AcesHigh'' sees an aerial chase at low level lead to the destruction of both aircraft.


Added DiffLines:

* Creator/DerekRobinson's novel of First world War air combat, ''War Story'', sees a British plane chase a wounded German down into a river valley - which has telegraph wires strung across it. The British pilot makes his kill, but fails to see the wires, and tangles into them in a catastrophic crash which brings down his flimsy wood-and-canvas biplane.
