* ''Anime/YuGiOh'', "Waking the Dragons". "Yami" / the Pharoah. Weevil Underwood. Traintop card dueling. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Seriousness.]] This is the one that ends with Weevil pissing Yami off so much that he keeps attacking even ''after'' Weevil's life points hit zero. It just wasn't his day.
** And then topped by Kaiba (oddly enough) when he and a filler villain from the same arc battle ''on top of a private jet''. Even [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] for its ridiculousness.

** ''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 [[TheWindyCity 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.

A train has plenty of advantages for an action scene: it's fairly enclosed, without people able to go too far either way for fear of falling off, it has plenty of opportunity for tunnels and overhead lines for your LookBehindYou moments, it doesn't need much explanation, the high speed acts as wind to let characters [[DramaticWind billow dramatically]]. In short, it turns an Action Movie into a FightingGame. There's really no other way to [[JustifiedTrope justify]] BossArenaIdiocy, and it's pretty much ensured that somebody's going to suffer that most dramatic of defeats; a short drop followed by a sudden stop.
