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'' sees Spider-Man and Doctor Octapus duke it out on a speeding UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} [[UsefulNotes/ChicagoL 'L']] train [[http://www.chicago-l.org/multimedia/Spiderman2/images/Spiderman2-2200s01.jpg attempting to pass for a]] UsefulNotes/NewYorkSubway train, with the fight primarily taking place on the roof, but also on the side of the train, trailing behind the train, and briefly ''inside'' the train.

** ''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.

* The majority of the second chapter of ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'' takes place on a train, so naturally one of these results. They mention the combatants being buffeted by the wind and doing their best to hold on. [[spoiler:Ironically, it's not between Trixie and the [[MenInBlack two Stallions in Black]] chasing her, but with what seems to be Lightning Dust, with [[BigDamnHeroes Rainbow Dash showing up midway]] through to help Trixie.]]
