* Virtually any gladiator movie
* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', it is {{implied}} that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker has the thugs of a crime boss he has just killed fight to the death with a broken pool cue, as he "only had one opening" in the gang he was forming. Being the Joker, it was almost certainly [[ForTheEvulz for his own amusement]].

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', "The Cat and the Canary" and "Grudge Match". Both featured a secret underground super-powered fighting circuit run by the villainess Roulette. The latter episode resorted to [[{{Brainwashed}} mind control]] to effect [[FanService girl]]-on-[[FetishFuel girl]] {{Catfight}}s.

* The 2009 ''WesternAnimation/AstroBoy'' film has one of these in the robot games. [[spoiler:As you can probably guess, the titular boy ends up in them against his will. He (unwillingly) destroys almost every robot sent against him - until Zog shows up. Fortunately, Zog won't fight him either.]]

* ''Film/EscapeFromLA'' (In a variation, Snake Plissken, an unbeatable dirty fighter, has to win a steel-cage ''basketball game'' in order to escape. The danger coming from the fact that if he doesn't make enough goals, he gets shot to pieces)
** Notably, the game is ''impossible'': it requires scoring 25 points (standard basketball rules apply), crossing the court each time, in ''60 seconds''. Which makes the fact that Snake ''succeeds'' all the more badass.
*** The last shot is full-court, and Creator/KurtRussell ''actually made the shot in real life''.
** In the first Plissken film, ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'', it's a more conventional boxing/wrestling match he's forced to participate in.
