A SubTrope of ChaseFight, with a bit of CatAndMouseBoss thrown in, with the twist that [[InvertedTrope rather than getting a power up that makes the boss run from you, you claim an object that means now you have to run from him.]] Will likely either be the result of, or caused by a MeleeATrois. Also see CrowdHockey, particularly for when the melee takes place in crowded areas, As well as LootDrama. Compare StolenMacGuffinReveal, where the MacGuffin is only stolen once (twice, tops).

[[spoiler:The Crime Syndicate of Earth-3, which has been manipulating all three Leagues as preparation for an invasion of this Earth. During the melee, Pandora's Box activates and the Crime Syndicate emerges and curb-stomps the Leagues.]]

* ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' did this when Spidey, Hammerhead, Silver Sable, and eventually the Rhino, all throwdown over a disk with technology that will allow the wielder to create their own Rhino-like henchman. Spider-Man and Rhino team up since they don't want that (Spidey does not want more Rhino's, and Rhino likes being the only game in town), allowing them to break the stalemate.
