A SternChase makes a good reason why those WalkingTheEarth choose not to just settle down. It is also commonly associated with ClearMyName plots. The pursuer is often the ImplacableMan. If the pursuer is a well-intentioned, sympathetic character, he is an InspectorJavert or a SympatheticInspectorAntagonist. Compare also SuperPersistentPredator, which is a generally unrealistic animal version of the pursuer.

* Music/PoetsOfTheFall:
** DrivingSong "[[https://youtu.be/AzsiE44Lz_w?list=PLjACqN5i5sDVBPJGHevomO4YZd9wwVLkS Late Goodbye]]" has a couple chased endlessly by "the Devil" though its unclear whether its literal or metaphorical.
--->The devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us\\
Points at your flamin' hair, and then we're playin' hide and seek\\
I can't breathe easy here, 'less our trail's gone cold behind us\\
'Til in the john mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak
** {{Driving|Song}}[=/=]WanderlustSong "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di7NMssrqsE Daze]]" has the singer complaining "IJustWantToHaveFriends" but being compelled to drift from place to place by a pursuer
--->With constant companions, would that I could\\
Further afield my nemesis on stilts is gaining on me

%%* ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk''.

to:

%%* ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk''.* Though David's motivation to WalkTheEarth is to find a cure for his condition so he can return from the presumed dead (he also doesn't want to develop ties to people that might end up getting hurt), ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk'' also involves the hero being "pursued by an investigative reporter" who wants to make his name with inflammatory tabloid coverage of "the creature".

Added DiffLines:

* In the first ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' game, your party is chasing after the people responsible for lighting the Elemental Lighthouse, who also kidnapped a childhood friend, her brother, and a sage, with every new location you enter telling you you juuuust missed them (in some locations, they move a lot faster than you or actively slow you down by causing landslides). In the second game, you play as the kidnapped people (minus the two who serve as the FinalBoss) but due to a major earthquake and shifting landmasses, you can't reach your old party to explain the situation [[spoiler:(especially the fact that the Lighthouses ''need'' to be rekindled)]]. Both parties are eventually reunited with each other.

* One short mystery/horror story deals with the protagonist (a blind man) being hired by a man to warn him of approaching footsteps after he reveals he's been on the run for years from a vengeful mummy/spirit from a tomb he'd violated and unfortunately for him his latest place to stay, a hotel, is undergoing construction work. It ends with the blind man hearing him jump from a window to his death but he can still hear the man running and the sound of pursuit from the spirit, endlessly trying to get away.
