"A change in pace"

Most fights in many sessions will involve the players and the bad guys one a level plane. In a cave, a field, a castle, a dungeon, it's all usually very simple terrain...

And then the DM throws a curveball. Suddenly the fight is taking place in the water where fire spells fizzle out, or on horse carriages careening down a forest path. Either way, one thing for certain is that it makes the players change up their usual style. Tell a story where your group or someone else's group had to fight or deal with a situation that wasn't on usual terrain.

Mine is sort of a subversion of the topic , but it's applicable. We were taking a boat across an inland sea to get to our destination when we were set upon by pirates. The enemy ship was a few hundred feet away and closing in with every round. The DM told us that we'd have to wait for it to get in close if we wanted to board or repel boarders. This gave us a few turns to prepare. My character, a ranger with no no feats for shooting long distances, pulls out his longbow and fires a shot at one of the pirates. I hit and he drops. Next round same thing. The 3 rounds after that the same. By this point the pirates will board us in two rounds and they are down half their guys, so I target their helmsman and crit. As such, the DM rules that his body falls forward on to the wheel and pushes the ship away from ours and into some rocks.

"But that's just visual effects, right?"

We were using this system based on Final Fantasy. We were ambushed while crossing a wooden bridge. Our summoner won the initiative and decided to summon Ifrit (tbh it was his only aeon at the time).
Me: Wait, wouldn't that destroy the bridge?
GM: Don't worry, the bridge can stand the weight.
Me: No, I mean this is how you summon Ifrit.

GM: Oh, right. Fire and breaking the ground. Definitely something you don't want to do while standing on a wooden bridge.

"taking down a ship by my self at lvl8"

This is one of my favorite game killer story, I was playing level 8 Undine Ninja in game some time back. We had to take a ship to get to some hidden island or some such. So im on night watch when this ship shows up out of nowhere. Round one i lower myself over the side of our ship. On the second round i activate my magic boots (at will expeditious retreat, and 2/D Haste) then full run action to reach the enemy ship and ghost step in to the hold. My final round of action i ran to the powder room and used my only other magic item (my +1 flaming Wakizashi of spell storing) set the fireball off as i stepped out under the ship with an other use of ghost step. Needless to say i put a big hole in the enemy ship before anyone else did a thing.

"Boiling Water or Watch Your Step"

I once had to fight underwater as my Oracle. He had the blackened curse and loved to shoot scorching rays at enemies. The change in location didn't really affect him though. Pathfinder has a rule allowing you to make a caster level check when you cast a fire spell underwater. If you succeed, the only change is that the spell manifests as a bubble of steam instead.

In a different campaign, the party ended up traveling to and fighting enemies on the Ethereal Plane. During one such combat, an enemy we had weakened to the point of near death tried to escape from us by shifting to the Material Plane, and immediately fell to its death. It had been so concerned with us that it had not realized it was standing above a pit.

It's been so long since I've seen the anime, I forgot how the fight actually goes. Will probably have to rectify that soon.

This is why people hate fish bosses and ocean/water dungeons. Also doesn't help that Luffy literally can't chase after him in there while he takes advantage of his water based fast healing.

"Tower Surfing"

This happened in a system called Exalted, anyway I had a player break a large tower off of a palace and start sliding it down main street to safety. Enemy elemental martial artist jumps on and the slug it out on that. It was glorious.

Sounds like something out of any relatively recent flashy high action combo style video game...I wholeheartedly approve!

""Closed room brawl""

The change in location actually benefited my character, a lazy relaxed sleepyhead who was also a really good swordsman.

Normally we fought upland in an open or urban space, but this time, the boss wanted to fight me and another PC in his underground enclosed training room to test our mettle and, in his own words, 'check if we are worthy of being his guardians'. Aka bodyguards and secondary leaders of the mafia gang he was running. Our task was to tag him once without dying, and thus did our three player pvp began.

I should probably mention that they had powers. Bossman had gravity control and punching in his moveset, while the other PC has ice powers and knives (Lets call her icegirl). As for my character, he was a swordsman, and an earthbender.

Let me repeat. The boss was fighting my character, an earthbender, in an enclosed room deep underground. And he knew my character was an earthbender. You can see how things didn't seem quite right.

My character tried to play nice, at first. Just used his sword and everything to support Icegirl's ice bird launcher movements. But then bossman decided to slap both of our characters and try to crush us into dust with his gravity powers for not taking things seriously.

Naturally, my character got the earth to swallow both him and Icegirl, and after a few seconds of planning he did a sandcoffin move that more or less caused the room to implode on itself, like air rushing to fill space left behind in a vacuum, which would have buried bossman alive.

The only reason bossman survived was because he was using all his strength to push the earth away from his being with the help of gravity. It also left him with no hands when Icegirl erupted out from the ground and smacked him dead on with her ice phoenix, knocking him out and thus ending the fight.
