** In the [=MST3K=]'ed ''SpaceMutiny'', the final chase is down an inside corridor between what looks like a handful of modified baggage carts (Mike and the Bots referred to them as 'floor waxers'). It's hard to look action-packed when it's pretty clear that any of the actors could get out on foot and run laps around the pursuers and pursued. The climactic showdown between the Hero and Villain ended with a chase in said carts, which is as undignified as one would imagine.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]] * Dramatic example: The short story ''The Quest for Blank Claveringi'' has a scientist stuck on an island with two giant man-eating snails. They're not much faster than normal snails, and so aren't much of a threat...unless you're on a tiny island with barely anywhere to hide. [[AC:LiveActionTV]]

** "Day of the Daleks" features a motorised tricycle on which the Doctor and Jo attempt to escape from the Ogrons (because Jon Pertwee had thought the tricycle was [[RuleOfCool cool]]) - which, again, doesn't appear to go notably faster than walking speed.

The pilots then try to walk after him with nets. ** Chief Wiggum chasing the duck who took his badge. ** Grandpa Simpson chasing a tortoise that has his false teeth.
