An XMeetsY cross between a ChaseScene and a FightScene. At least two combatants are battling in a normal way, but their fight takes them on a journey as well. This could be because one or both fighters is trying to get to a specific destination, or maybe because they're just trying to ''get away'' from the beatdown they might be taking.

When on the ground, this could feature copious amounts of LeParkour and RoofHopping, these fights tend to go anywhere and everywere. This is also highly improbable, as the fighters, if human, would likely be tired out of their minds to fight, run and [[TalkingIsAFreeAction give snappy quips]] at the same time. Of course, the fighters could be simply superhuman.

If this is seen as a video game mechanic in a FightingGame, that is FreeFloorFighting. See also GetBackHereBoss.

While this is often referred to as a SternChase in naval warfare, ''that'' trope actually refers to a much longer pursuit with actual fighting being relatively rare, such as [[TheFugitive a fugitive]] on the run from the law.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In ''Manga/SoulEater'' this is how the fight between [[TheUndead Sid]] and [[{{Samurai}} Mifune]] goes (while essentially snowboarding without the boards no less).
* In the [[TournamentArc Davy Back Fight arc]] of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Zoro and Sanji do this as they attempt to reach Tonjit so they can tag him.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Pain and the Kyuubi engage in this. Both are near-godlike beings, and the anime uses deliberate OffModel animation to emphasise the speed and power of the chase.
* In Manga/RanmaOneHalf, occasionally the fights turn into this, but a couple of them were explicitly this, because they were a race to the finish line while trying to take out the competition at the same time.
* ''Anime/LupinIIIEpisode0FirstContact'': The duel between Lupin and Goemon. Lupin runs away as an increasingly frustrated Goemon tries to fight him. It begins with Goemon on foot, chasing Lupin in a car, then they're running on top of cars, as well as around Central Park. Lupin mostly just wants to escape.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* BatmanUnderTheRedHood has several. The Red Hood always runs from Batman until their final encounter, usually fighting the whole way.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* The fight between [[MeleeATrois Jack, Will and Norrington]] from the second ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''.
* Morpheus and Trinity's highway battle against [[EvilAlbino The Twins]] in ''Film/TheMatrix Reloaded'' while trying to reach an exit so they can escape the Matrix.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'': Obi-Wan & Qui-Gon vs. Darth Maul.
** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' Obi-Wan vs. Anakin.
** The beginning of ''[[Film/StarWarsANewHope Episode IV: A New Hope]]''. Princess Leia's starship is fighting with Darth Vader's Star Destroyer as she tries to escape so she can give technical data on the Death Star to the Rebel Alliance.
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra''. The scene where the Baroness and Storm Shadow are driving to the Eiffel Tower in order to attack it and fighting with the Joes as they do so.
* ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''. The running battle between Indiana and the Nazi convoy that's trying to get the Ark to Cairo. Indiana chases after it on a horse, eventually boards the truck and fights everyone involved.
* ''TheBluesBrothers''. The title characters are trying to get to the Cook County Assessor's office to pay the tax on the orphanage. They're pursued by police officers, National Guard troops, Nazis [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and a country-western band]], with much destruction along the way.
* ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon'', the two main female characters have one of these across the rooftops.
* ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' (1990). Benny drives Quaid and Melina to the Last Resort as Richter and his partner follow in their car, with both parties shooting at each other.
* ''{{Heat}}'' (1995) has the running firefight that takes place after a botched robbery.
* Midway through ''OngBak'', Tony Jaa partakes in one of these. Naturally, he is trying to avoid confrontation, but as soon as he gets cornered, he lays a serious beat down on any of those dumb enough to attack him.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2''. Po chasing Wolf Boss across Gongmen City on rickshaws! HilarityEnsues. Po wins the fight, only to find that Wolf Boss isn't just running from him, he's running ''to'' the palace, [[OhCrap guarded by an entire army of wolf soldiers]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''HoratioHornblower'': The first-published book, ''The Happy Return''[[note]] [[MarketBasedTitle Beat To Quarters, in the US]][[/note]], featured a climactic chase between Captain Hornblower's frigate HMS ''Lydia'' against the much more powerful warship ''Natividad''. Also, the ''Natividad's'' stern guns have a longer range than the ''Lydia's'' forward guns, which means that the ''Lydia'' has to soak several hits before she can get close enough to return fire. To pass the time, and [[StiffUpperLip to keep his men from realizing how nervous he is about the situation]], he invites his officers to a game of cards, and orders the sailors to have a dancing competion, even as cannon shot from the ''Natividad'' lands all around them.
* ''Literature/HonorHarrington'', of course, being ''Horatio Hornblower [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]]'', features more than a few of these. The first book has a lone undergunned light cruiser doggedly chasing down a much more powerful merchant cruiser, later books have entire fleets engaging in chases when one fleet or the other is forced to disengage and retreat, with their enemies not wanting them to escape with their forces intact. One book has an outmatched force [[DelayingAction trick a much larger force into chasing them deeper into the system]] so that [[TheCavalry their reinforcements]] can trap the attacking fleet inside [[NoWarpingZone the system hyperlimit]].

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* {{Wrestling/ECW}} matches tended to go all over the arena.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}} "Hardcore" matches often go backstage, and recently Wrestling/{{Kane}} [[http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=jV8N6g_qRqM chokeslammed]] ReyMysterioJr into the Gulf of Mexico after Mysterio Hurricanrana'd JackSwagger into the ocean. (The match started in an arena that's within spitting distance to the ocean.)

[[folder:Video Games]]
* This tends to be a recurring element in SonicTheHedgehog games:
** In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', the final battle between Sonic and Shadow is a chase along an abandoned space station. The preceding levels are even called Final Chase and Final Rush.
** ''SonicAdvance 2'' was almost exclusively this style of BossBattle.
** In games with Super Sonic only final bosses, this tends to be the format they fall under.
* The cutscene after final fight between Travis and Henry in NoMoreHeroes features this, as a visual metaphor for them trying to [[CallBack "find that exit they call paradise"]]
* In ''[[{{Spyro}} Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning]]'', both fights against Cynder.
* You'll probably have these in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series.
* ''VideoGame/MirrorsEdge''. AND HOW!
** Then again, the REAL chase fight scene is with [[spoiler:Celeste]] and you guys end up fighting on top a ship crate with LeParkour action.
* During an EscortMission of a coach from Kariko Village to Hyrule Castle Town in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' Link has to fight off several Bokoblins. It's notably one of the most reviled moments in a Zelda game for, well, [[NintendoHard a]] [[ScrappyMechanic few]] [[ThatOneLevel reasons]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The climax of the second half of ''{{Bunnykill}} 5'' involves [[spoiler:Dust, in full-on RoaringRampageOfRevenge mode after the PsychoSerum incident that led to him killing Snowball, having an awesome one of these against Smoke, one of the two bad guys responsible for the incident, involving Dust leaping from vehicle to vehicle, mowing down or shanking mooks in his way, and battling Smoke in his damaged helicopter gunship with machine guns and rockets, and ultimately having a one-on-one duel atop a moving semi that gets destroyed during the battle.]]
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' shows [[TheBigGuy Maine]], [[TheAce Carolina]], and [[TheLancer York]] trying to get a briefcase from [[LaResistance Insurrectionist soldiers]], while racing down a highway.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The climactic battle between Aang and [[BigBad Fire Lord Ozai]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' was this on both sides, at various times.
** In the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Tenzin fights [[ArcVillain Zaheer]] in the episode "The Ultimatum". The first part of the fight is a chase, with Zaheer trying to escape from Tenzin so they can fight on higher grounds.
* Any of the ''FamilyGuy'' fights that pit Peter against the giant chicken.
* In the ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoon "A Dream Walking," Popeye and Bluto chase after a sleepwalking Olive ''while'' fighting over who gets to save her.
* The final season of ''StarWarsCloneWars'' features a long scene with three Jedi and Chancellor Palpatine fleeing from General Grievous and occasionally stopping to fight him.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'' Thundera's GladiatorGames in their [[TheThunderdome thunderdome]] take this format: a race between two {{Catfolk}} competitors climbing, swinging, jumping and running up a giant tree to to ring a bell at its top, where [[BloodSport violent]] kicking and punching in order to knock a competitor out of the tree are entirely acceptable methods of getting ahead. Young Prince Lion-O challenges Tygra to a match only to suffer a particularly humiliating RingOut, landing in a pool of water below.
* ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': In "His Silicon Soul," the android Batman chases the real Batman around the Bat Cave as they fight.
