* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', there's a part with a long stretch of stairs over a BottomlessPit. Once you start to descend it, a boulder comes rolling down from behind, which you have to dodge by moving aside. Then it's safe to descend further, right? Wrong! The boulder comes ''rolling back up'', and then down again, and back and forth. Turns out the "boulder" is a spherical pile of [[DemBones animated skeletons]].

* ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesGreatestAdventures'' also features the boulder chase -- and throws in a nice CameraScrew as well, as you must hug the right side of the screen, meaning that if you don't know ahead of time when to jump, you'll hit a trap, recoil, and get crushed by the boulder in an example of TrialAndErrorGameplay.
* ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheEmperorsTomb'' pulls this off with a DrillTank, in an [[ThatOneLevel insanely frustrating level]].
* ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheInfernalMachine'' has a chase involving an ''enormous'' boulder at the end of the [[spoiler:[[CallBack revisit to Peru]]]]. What makes this one different is that you have to dodge the boulder ''twice'' - once when it's released and it rolls towards you from the front (requiring a hasty retreat to the room you've just left, watching out for the [[spoiler:[[EverythingTryingToKillYou steadily collapsing floor]]]] which eventually forces you to run forwards again), then a second time when it has rolled up a slope behind you and comes back the other way, thus commencing a more traditional IndyEscape. This escape is twisted when the only path brings you up against a solid wall, guaranteeing that the boulder will crush you... unless you use your whip on [[BenevolentArchitecture the horizontal pole at the top of the passage]], letting you climb to a height where the boulder can pass right beneath you and smash through the wall.

** ''Tomb Raider: Legend''. Lara is chased by a giant boulder while dodging obstacles. At the end the boulder opens a shortcut back up to the current level.
** ''Tomb Raider: Anniversary''. In the "Atlas" room, you have to activate two switches to retrieve the key, which also causes the giant statue of Atlas to release the giant metal globe he was previously holding up. There are no nooks to hide in, and the pit at the far side is too wide to jump across without help.
