* PS1 game ''VideoGame/CriticalDepth'' was basically Twisted Metal UNDERWATER. Subs ranged from a wooden pirate sub with cannons to a converted private jet. It was not very realistic.

* ''{{Cyborg 009}}'' features a scene where the team's mobile base is being pursued separately by both an American and Soviet sub. The heroes make their getaway when the two subs notice each other and begin fighting.

* ''{{X-Com}}: Terror From The Deep'' had this when intercepting alien craft. Then again, all of the alien races from this installment of the X-Com series were amphibious, traveled around in weird-looking submarines, and came from a colony ship that crashed some 65 million years ago.

* ''{{Archipelago}}'' has a few submarine battles, although most are implied, with only one actually seen in the story so far. It was, however, epic, and involved grappling onto and then ''boarding'' the other sub. Without surfacing.

Predictably enough, [[HilarityEnsues he ends up in command after shooting the captain out of a torpedo tube (hitting an enemy sub) and nearly starts World War III.]]

* Another particularly brutal minisub duel occurs in the Film/JamesBond film ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly''. The bad guy's sub was actually piloted by the man who designed it, Graham Hawkes, who, amusingly, tried so hard to make the fight scene realistic (having been ordered to by the director, despite his earlier protests it was unsafe) that he almost killed RogerMoore's stunt double.

* In ''AdvanceWars'', sub-sub fights are quite common because submerged subs can only be attacked by cruisers and other subs. Given that cruisers are not constantly invisible and very vulnerable to battleships and bombers, they tend to be prime targets of opportunity and generally die quicker than subs. A sub attacking another sub will do between 55-65% damage; most sub battles end up with 8 HP on the attacker and 4 on the defender.

Added DiffLines:

** During the final chase scene, both subs surface to increase their speed. However, in RealLife, this would have only increased the ''Stingray'''s speed and would have ''slowed down'' the ''Orlando''. WorldWarTwo-era subs were designed to be faster on the surface. However, the cucumber shape of modern nuclear subs is best utilized underwater.
