* In a [[AdaptedOut manga-only arc]] of ''Manga/UshioAndTora'', the titular heroes are riding a train in the underground tunnel connecting Hokkaido to Honshu and have to fight back [[BloodKnight Kyoura the evil monk]] and the monstrous {{Youkai}} Mountain Fish, who attaches himself to the train to snack on the humans inside. To cap it all, not only the monster is super persistent and NighInvulnerable, but they have to kill it before they leave the tunnel, because exposing the Mountain Fish to sunlight will result in a [[StuffBlowingUp 200-meters wide explosion]] tha would kill everyone and cause the tunnel to collapse.

Note that if the track is electrified with overhead wires, climbing on the train roof usually results in immediate electrocution. The voltage used on electrification systems is high enough to cause an electric arc from the wire to the hapless victim, and it does happen in RealLife.

** ''Film/SpiderMan2'' has an 'R' train fight that happens: on top of the train, on the side of the train, trailing behind the train, and briefly ''in'' the train. Also a case of [[UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} Chicago doubling]] (as [[http://www.chicago-l.org/multimedia/Spiderman2/images/Spiderman2-2200s01.jpg proven here]]) since none of the NewYorkSubway's lines are elevated in Manhattan (except for parts of the '''1''' train), and there are no subway cars in New York City that have fold-in blinker doors.
** ''Film/SpiderMan3''; takes it to another level with [[EvilFeelsGood Black Spidey]] and Sandman dishing it out in the subway, with each of them smashing each other into the trains, particularly Spidey sawing off half of Sandman's face by pressing it against the passing train.
