* ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' had this trope: Batman against the Joker's semi-trailer. Result? Batman, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and how.]] Why? Because [[MemeticMutation HE'S THE GODDAMN BATMAN.]]

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'': you vs a tank, you vs a Hind-D helicopter, you vs a Metal Gear. ''Metal Gear Solid 2'': you vs a Harrier jumpjet, you vs many Metal Gear Rays. ''Metal Gear Solid 3'': you vs the Shagohod. ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' is slightly different in that you have to take on a Metal Gear Ray, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome but you yourself are in a Metal Gear Rex.]]

Compare VehicularCombat, where the emphasis is on the vehicles fighting each other, and VehicularSabotage, when a character's vehicle is maliciously tampered with before they drive it. Not to be confused with CarFu, which is when the vehicle is turned into a makeshift weapon. However, the two are likely to overlap.

* In the new [[FiftyCent 50 cent]] game, the GiantBomb review complained that every single boss in the game is a generic helicopter gunship.

** ''GearsOfWar 2'' includes a battle between Delta Squad and some Locust in which each side occupies an assault derrick (essentially, an armored drilling apparatus used to assault the subterrainean Locust home turf. The Locust have hijacked theirs). Because the derricks are in motion across mountainous terrain, the player(s) must kill the opposing derrick's pilot before the vehicles reach a one-lane bridge. Also, the turrets on the humans' derrick are broken.

** The same basic dynamic happens when trying to hijack an air barge in ''Gears of War 3.'' The barges are even more vehicle-like than the other methods of travel employed by the Locust, as the animal portion seems to be used solely to provide lift, with mechanical portions providing the lateral movement.

* A planned game that was canceled (because of the fact the creator just postponed the idea in order to create Iron Twilight) has a stage where you fight 3 bandits who drive in futuristic cars. But you get outnumbered when you see the boss in the stage. Compare the boss's high tech racing car to your puny police bike. Yikes...
