Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A very common trope in Speculative Fiction across all media. One opponent sends out a beam of destructive energy intent on frying their opponent, and the opponent does the same. These two beams slam against each other in the middle, and begin "pushing" back and forth, essentially becoming an energy arm-wrestle. Either one consumes the other and goes on to greet the enemy, one opponent collapses from the effort involved, or else they both explode.
When more than two opponents are involved, they usually join their beam attack with their respective ally (or give them more energy) so that the "intersection" gets closer to the opponent. They almost never think about sneaking behind their defenseless foe and beaming them (or stabbing them) In the Back.
A slight variation of this trope will have one character creating a "shield", attempting to hold it up as long as they can, lest their opponent's beam of death destroy them.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This has little justification in real-life science. Lasers, for example, will simply pass through each other unimpeded, although their point of intersection may experience any constructive or destructive interference between the two beams depending on the characteristics (wavelength and phase) of the lasers involved. Of course, energy beams in fantasy and sci-fi are up for grabs in terms of how they react to one another, but even then there's the improbability of the beams being fired nearly simultaneously at perfect enough angles to result in a head-on collision with similar enough initial force to force equilibrium without planning such things beforehand. It does work for matter projectiles (partially, see below), but those are rarely used.
Despite that it makes no sense even in fiction, physical projectiles or strikes are sometimes portrayed meeting midair and "pushing" each other until one side wins in much the same pattern used for beams.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Beam-o-War is also known as a beam "struggle" or "clash" in certain circles. If a video game has Destructible Projectiles, a variant of this can occur. Compare Air Jousting, Brawler Lock, Blade Lock, and Pummel Duel (the Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs variation of this) for more physical examples. May be preceded by Blasting Time.

In Zoids: Chaotic Century, one of these occurs between Thomas and his Dibison and Raven and his second Geno Saurer. The two were evenly matched for a short time, but since the Dibison has no way of dissipating the excess heat from its attack like the Geno Saurer does, it's eventually overwhelmed and defeated.

In a Megas XLR episode paying homage to the whole Mecha-Godzilla idea (see below), Gorrath makes a Glorft version of Megas and the two robots have at it at the end of the episode. Gorrath lets loose eye lasers and Coop responds in kind with lasers from the headlights of his robot's car-head. They are evenly matched until Coop flips on his car's high beams.

It also happens in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, except this time the fragments of Voldemort's soul have all been destroyed, including the one held inside Harry's body, which results in Voldemort's death when the beams collide.
And the second collison of beams doesn't last half as long as the first one did because Voldemort was using the Elder Wand ... only he wasn't the true wielder of it, Harry was! And the Elder Wand refused to kill Harry. That's why Voldemort's Killing Curse rebounds back on him!

One happens in Gundam SEED Destiny when Kira and Shinn fire their primary beam cannons at one another.
Another such clash closes out the final battle of Gundam X. The big difference here: it's between dueling satellite cannons, and Garrod's Gundam Double X proves that two satellite cannons really are better than the Frost brothers' one.
Zeta Gundam had a much weaker version in the final battle; since the beams fired didn't have constant energy output, they just flared and burst.
The final battle between Domon and Master Asia in G Gundam plays this straight with their dueling Sekiha Tenkyokens.

During Ranma ½s duel between Ranma and Ryouga in which the former canceled out the latter's depression-fueled Shishi Hokodan with his own arrogance-powered Mouko Takabisha. But then Ryouga, depressed further by his attack being countered, delivered an even bigger Shishi Hokodan that popped Ranma's Mouko Takabisha like a soap bubble.

In Senki Zesshou Symphogear Episode 11, Chris uses her superb song to essentially go strike freedom on an Ion Cannon named Kadangir, which is supposed to be strong enough to destroy the moon with one blast. She fails, but she manages to weaken the blast enough to only have a chunk of the moon be blown off at the cost of her life.

In an episode of The Simpsons parodying a particular death in the Harry Potter books, the death in question occurs in a much more straightforward fashion than in the books with "Lord Greystache" facing the series's Big Bad in a beam-o-war. Unfortunately, he is forced to break off his attack in order to save the protagonist from a grisly death, rendering him defenseless. Homer invokes Fanon Dis Continuity and makes up a new ending on the fly where the duel is resolved in a different manner...

Dogyuun's second boss has a move where it fires out a Wave-Motion Gun from its chest, and you can try to counter it with your own Wave-Motion Gun if you have the blue weapon. You'll probably lose, though, as he fires out two and you only fire one.

Superman and AMAZO matching heat vision. AMAZO cheats and uses Green Lantern powers to give himself an edge.
And on JLU, Red Tornado goes up against three Wind Dragon clones simultaneously, performing this trope with cyclones rather than beams. Red Tornado comes out on top, almost embarrassingly easily.
The various DCAU Green Lanterns also have a tendency to get involved in the 'shield' version, on either side.

In 1992 The Fantastic Four movie, the Human Torch does a full-body 'flame on' for the first time near the end of the movie to outrace a laser beam (!) that is arcing from Latveria to New York City (!), and manages to win a beam-of-war with the laser (!) using his flames. Because he always wanted to beat this one video game that had something similar. Oy, vey.

In a subversive twist, the title character of Lyrical Nanoha wins a beam-battle against rival Fate, only to lose when the resulting lightshow blinds her to the latter's movements. A smokeless Smoke Shield, as it were. Later on, however, she does win both a "shield versus beam" match and a "beam versus shield" match, one right after the other. This gets played around with several times later in the series. Fate attempts to use the same "use explosion from beam of war to hide movement" trick against Chrono in the A's manga only to fly right into a delayed Bind spell prepared by the more experienced Chrono. And in the penultimate episode of StrikerS, Vivio used the same trick on Nanoha, except Nanoha was prepared enough to raise a shield against the sneak attack. Unfortunately it still proved useless before her attacker's powered punches. The trope is also played straight, such as the Beam-O-War with Dieci in StrikerS where Nanoha, who has been operating under a Power Limiter for the whole season, shows that she is not left handed after all (well, she actually is, but that's besides the point),and wins effortlessly. During ViVid, Nanoha and Teana both use Starlight Breaker at the same time, the collision causing a massive explosion that knocks out pretty much everybody in the vicinity. It should be noted that that last one took place during a training match.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, in its duel between Simon and Nia in the Lagann and Lordgenome in his Lazengann, features a variant on this that can only be called a Drill-O-War. No beams involved, but every other factor was classic Power Struggle.
They also play it's straight, albeit in their typical fashion, in the end when Anti-Spiral makes a beam with as much energy as the Big Bang and the Gurren Brigade still beat him (with a little help from Lordgenome).
In Lagann-hen, another Drill-O-War happens, this time beyond their typical fashion. Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann unleashes its universe-sized Giga Drill Break, and the Anti-Spiral follows with its own Giga Drill Break. In other words, the Spiral Nemesis (or at least some form of it, as the Spiral Nemesis explanation was very specific), what the Anti-Spiral was trying to prevent, happens. The universe starts to collapse in on itself as the two drills spin against each other. Good thing it was the Anti-Spiral's pocket universe, with no other life-forms (hopefully, after all they were throwing galaxies around like shuriken), or else everyone would've been dead.

A slight variation in Naruto, when Naruto and Sasuke fly at each other with hand-held forces of destruction, which they smash together. It creates a lightshow more appropriately a "Ball O War", which then expands and envelops them both in a black sphere. At the end of the series, Naruto and Sasuke present a good reason as to why a "Ball-O-War" is less effective than a standard Bean-O-War: the two blow off their dominant arms.
Itachi and Sasuke then do this, but with breathing fire. Itachi wins by using Amaterasu, which burns the other fire.
The video games, like the Dragon Ball ones, frequently have this as a mechanic. This can lead to combinations such as Kakashi's lightning-enhanced chakra strike vs Might Guy's foot.

Supergirl:
Due to a temporal misunderstanding, Supergirl and Superboy engage in an Eye Beam duel during their first Post-Crisis meeting. Kara wins by getting enough close to punch Conner.
In Supergirl (Rebirth): The Girl of No Tomorrow, Supergirl and Emerald Empress' Eye of Ekron engage in an optic beam war which Kara appears to be winning when she's suddenly struck down by another enemy.

So far Digimon Xros Wars has had this twice, once with Shoutmon X4 vs. DeathMeramon and another vs. AncientVolcanomon. The first time, Shoutmon X4 fired a drill from his shoulder at DeathMeramon's feet as a distraction. The second time, AncientVolcanomon fired another Big Bang Fire on top of the first for an extra push.

Kirby:
Kirby: Triple Deluxe features an inversion: Queen Sectonia's last-ditch attack to finish off Kirby is a massive energy beam. Kirby must counter it by inhaling it as Hypernova Kirby, and the struggle is then between whether Kirby can inhale faster than Queen Sectonia can blast him.
The climax of Kirby Star Allies involves Void Termina unleashing a massive laser beam at Kirby and his pals as a last-chance move to get rid of them. They retaliate with another laser, resulting in this trope. Interestingly, only one hit does not suffice to destroy Void Termina, and Kirby and his friends have to go several rounds, each with a different button input.

Cyberdrive Zoids also uses this in gameplay — if two beam attacks of similar power collide, it turns into a first-to-100 button-mashing contest to decide whose attack actually hits. Even when the AI gets a headstart, you can usually beat it.

Cyclops tends to do this a lot. In a crossover with the Agents of Atlas he and M-11 got into a Beam-O-War. Since they both shoot beams out of their eye(s) Iceman called it a staring contest.
In the Agents' first ongoing, M-11 had a Beam-O-War with the more powerful M-21 - and lost, getting blown to kingdom come (it's okay, he got better).

The final boss of the Dun Scaith raid features this. At the end of his first phase he’ll try to kill the entire raid with what is essentially an evil Spirit Bomb, while the raid group counters with an energy beam created by repeatedly attacking a magical door. If the raid’s damage output is high enough, their beam will slam the boss’s own attack right in his face.

Trigun had one in the final episode, when Knives tries to fire his angel arm at Vash, who responds with his own. While a chunk of perfectly good real estate is turned into a crater and the sky turns that distinctive post-apocalypse red color, the destruction is relatively limited and both Vash and Knives are unharmed, suggesting that their weapons largely nullified each other.

Red also adds a little whiplash to the scenario by giving the attack a stupidly long name.

In Neon Genesis Evangelion, there is a notable subversion in the battle with the Fifth Angel, Ramiel: both it and Shinji fire energy beams at each other, but the beams don't meet; their energies warp each other when they get close and they both veer off wildly. Shinji's weapon fires a positron beam, implying that the Angel's weapon is similar and the two electrically charged particle streams are therefore repelling each other. Played straight in Evangelion 2.22, though.

In Patch 3.56, the draconic Primal Shinryu and the Allagan superweapon Omega end their battle with one of these. When the two combatants see that their beams are evenly matched and aren’t budging an inch, they respond by cranking up the power. This causes the beams to explode in a massive Pillar of Light, swatting Shinryu and Omega out of the sky for a Double Knock Out.

In Iron Man 2, this happens twice between Iron Man and Rhodey. The first was an unexpected side-effect when they got in a fight; the second time it's used to take down Vanko for the last time. This version is a combination of Beam-O-War and Forbidden Chekhov's Gun. This is because the beams in question are thrust streams coming from their flight stabilizers. Unlike lasers, repulsor beams probably actually would "push" on each other violently.

Supergirl (2015):
Supergirl and her aunt Astra engage in an Eye Beam version of this in the second episode. Kara wins by redirecting the beams at the ceiling above her aunt, collapsing it on her.
Later, Supergirl faces her Evil Knockoff, Bizarro. They get into a heat vision vs. freeze vision duel, and then an arctic breath vs. flame breath duel.
When Supergirl is having her Final Battle with Non in the first Season Finale, it culminates in another Eye Beam duel, which ends when she overpowers him, burning out his eyes and rendering him catatonic.
Supergirl has another eye beam duel in the Season 3 episode "Trinity", this time with Reign during the DEO's fight with the Worldkillers in the latter's Fortress of Sanctuary.

Homestuck has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Beam O War duel. Unusually for this trope, this was between a psychic's telekinetic outburst and a purely mechanical Wave-Motion Gun instead of identical "styles" of power. Even odder, both parties survived despite being otherwise normal 13-year-old boys.
The characters involved, Sollux and Eridan have a second Beam-O-War duel. This time around, Sollux loses and is knocked unconscious.

Mazinger Z: Sometimes Mazinger Z and a Mechanical Beast engaged in this, and usually Kouji used Mazinger's Breast Fire to couterattack their energy beams or waves. Some examples happened in episode 11 and episode 30.

The final battle in season one of A Certain Scientific Railgun ends with one of these. Despite Therestina boasting that her artificial railgun attack was more powerful than the original, Mikoto's railgun overpowered Therestina's for victory. Seems the animators forgot that railguns use physical ammunition, and if this actually happened the result would be a powerful explosion with supersonic shrapnel, not a power struggle.

Godzilla: Unleashed lets two monsters lock beams if they fire them at each other at the same time. The monsters send pulses of energy down the beams (with a flick of the Wiimote) to push the ball toward the opponent. Whoever loses takes the damage of both beams to the face, knocking the monster on its back. However, if the monsters are very close to each other and lock beams, it immediately explodes and sends both monsters flying.

The Harry Potter films use this in the battles between Dumbledore/Harry and Voldemort and occasionally in other duels. It doesn't make any sense in all cases but the first. However, since the films don't explain any of the cases, they all make equal sense in the theater.

X-Men: The Last Stand: Iceman and Pyro utilize beams of ice and fire, respectively. When Pyro starts to gain ground, Iceman abandons the beam strategy and coats himself in ice armor, allowing him to just walk over and take down Pyro with an old-fashioned headbutt.
X-Men: Apocalypse: Storm's lightning and Cyclops' optic blast collide during a battle. Nightcrawler teleports Cyclops away before a winner is established.

In the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Quest Part 2", Daniel Jackson and Adria have one- Daniel has Merlin's consciousness inside him, and blocks Adria's energy beam attack with one of his own in order to buy the others time to leave through the gate. He loses after the others leave (turns out that an ordinary human body has far less endurance when channeling such power) and is taken prisoner by Adria and the Ori.

Occurs several times with fire blasts during Azula and Zuko's Agni Kai during the finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Used symbolically in the fight between Aang and Ozai, where the beams spew out of their bodies into the sky, with the latter's color's dominance in the light show showing how close he was to psychically dominating the other.
The shield variant also appears, with Aang hiding in a ball of rock while Ozai tries to Kill Him With Fire.

In The Force Unleashed, if the player and an enemy both use lightning on each other simultaneously, one of these ensues. If the player can push the right buttons fast enough, his attack goes through; otherwise, the enemy's attack does.
In the final cutscene, Galen Marek and the Emperor do this with Force Lightning, much like the Emperor and Yoda previously had. Also much like Yoda, Marek pushes it back and the resulting explosion sends everyone flying and (presumably) kills the nearby Stormtroopes. The Emperor and Darth Vader are (of course) fine, but Marek himself is supposedly killed by it.

Easily the most iconic example is Goku vs Vegeta, where Vegeta fires his Galick Gun while Goku uses his Kamehameha with a Kaio-Ken, eventually upping to Kaio-Ken x4 to win the clash (at the cost of messing up his body). This example is usually what most fans think of when it comes to Beam O Wars in the series, and was used for the first intro to Dragon Ball Kai.

In Green Lantern: The Animated Series, the various Lantern Corps, Green, Red, Orange, Star Sapphires, and Blue, all have some kind of offensive beam as one of their basic attacks. Likewise the Anti-Monitor. The Manhunters have beam wands. The Lanterns specialize in hard light constructs, including various types of shields and armor. Most of the conflict between lanterns is beam-to-shield rather than opposing beams.

RuneScape had one of the longest beam o wars ever during a temporary event called The Battle of Lumbridge, where the gods Saradomin and Zamorak in their giant forms had a beam o war that lasted for more than 10 weeks while their armies battled each other beneath them to gather energy to tip the fight in their respective god's favor. During those 10 weeks, players could assist either side with gathering energy for rewards, with the winner of the beam o war being decided by which god had more energy gathered for them by players. It ultimately ended in Saradomin being victorious.

The climactic scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (pictured above) features a magical duel resolved in precisely this manner, due to a rare magical interaction between wands. When Harry "wins", Voldemort's wand is forced to start regurgitating phantoms of the spells he's cast in reverse order. When this reaches his (many) killing curses, it causes shades of his victims to appear, giving Harry moral support and scaring the hell out of their killer.

In the original Squadron Supreme mini-series, Hyperion fought his duplicate this way, each using their atomic vision.

Seijuu Sentai Gingaman: the battle between the first Monster of the Week, Kolshizer, and Ginga Red's gingabeast, Ginga Lion, featured this kind of fight. The beams in this fight where Kolshizer's lasergun and Ginga Lion's fire breath. Through Gingaman footage, this same battle was also featured in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, with the monster and the gingabeast being renamed as Radster and Lion Galactabeast respectively.

In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time Nynaeve's battle with the Forsaken Moghedien consists almost entirely of the two throwing the flows of the One Power at one another at half strength, using the other half to shield themselves from the other's attack. Interestingly the whole thing is invisible to Muggles (or men period) and its noted anyone walking in would have merely seen two women staring at one another. Several other fights have moments of this too. The straightest example occurs near the climax of the final book, with Balefire and the Flame of Tar Valon described as beams pushing at each other until one overwhelms the other.

Mahou Sensei Negima! - Negi's fight against Evangeline in the earlier chapters ends in one. (Well, technically it ends right after one occurs, the actual Beam O War really didn't decide anything.) 150 (or so) chapters down the line, the same happens between Negi and Chao Lingshen, literally deciding the victor of the Battle of Mahora.
Played with in the Negi vs Chao battle. In most other shonen action manga, one would expect the battle to be won by overwhelming power and Heroic Resolve; here it's decided by Negi's superior battle experience. While Chao's spell was more powerful than the one Negi used, Negi's spell had a shorter incantation and covered about two-thirds of the distance between him and Chao before she was able to launch her attack, immediately putting her on the defensive and critically over-straining her artificial magical abilities.)
Negi subverts it again during the fight against Rakan. He tricks his opponent into unleashing an enormous Kamehame Hadoken by putting (supposedly) all of his remaining energy into producing a giant "Titan Slayer" lightning spear and appealing to the opponent's love for contests of strength. Rather than throwing his spear to cancel out the blast, Negi absorbs both his Titan Slayer and Rakan's blast and uses the power boost to beat Rakan into (near-)submission.

In the movie The World's Strongest, Goku uses a Spirit Bomb against Dr. Wheelo's enormous energy beam. Goku's tiny little ball wins with ease. For many Z fans, this is an odd case because the Spirit Bomb is normal-sized, about that of Goku's head, wheras it's more known for being the size of buildings in the Namek arc and beyond.

The climax of Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion involves Pearl screaming into a giant Killer Wail (read: loudspeaker) to counter Commander Tartar's Wave-Motion Gun aimed at Inkopolis. Thanks to Pearl's singing voice alone already being destructively loud and shrill, she overwhelms Tartar easily with a 888.8% to 0% Turf War victory.

Havok and Cyclops of X-Men can do this, but there's very little point. Since they're brothers with powers that operate similarly, they simply absorb and metabolize each other's blasts.
The second season finale of the animated series culminates in a Beam-O-War between Cyclops and Mister Sinister, with a laser pistol-wielding Morph as the deciding factor.
Havok once engaged in a beam-o-war with his evil counterpart, the Living Pharaoh. It ended with Havok getting sealed in a case that shielded him from cosmic rays (thanks in part to a Spider-Man blunder), resulting in the Living Pharaoh taking all the cosmic rays for himself and transforming into the Living Monolith.

In the tie-in novel The Brothers' War, a young Urza and Mishra have a Beam-O-War battle between the green magical laser beams of Mishra's Weakstone and the red magical laser beams of Urza's Mightstone. When their mentor Tocasia tries to break it up, the resulting explosion leads to her death.

Used in the cinematics of Dead or Alive games: once in the opening to DOA Ultimate between Hayate and Raidou, then again in DOA Dimensions between Kasumi and Raidou. In the former, Raidou overpowers Hayate, and the resulting shockwave sends Hayate flying into a tree and snaps his spine, paralyzing him and putting him in a coma, while in the latter, Kasumi only manages to overpower Raidou thanks to Ryu Hayabusa's intervention.

In the Ultra Series, this is pretty much a given.
In Ultraseven, the fight between Ultraseven and Robot Ultraseven includes invoking this trope.
Ultraman Tiga has a few of these, including one against Alien Regulan ( Tiga wins) and one against Evil Tiga( stalemate, both combatants got knocked off their feet).
The final episode of Ultraman Neos climaxes with Neos and Ultraseven 21 combining their energy beams against Big Bad Menscheit's thunderbolt and winning.
Ultraman Ginga: The penultimate battle between Ultraman Ginga and Dark Lugiel is pretty much a 2-minute long version of this trope, until Ginga eventually wins.
Ultraman Geed: The final episode has Geed fire his Wrecking Burst while his father, Belial, fires his Deathcium Ray. It doesn't take too long before Geed overwhelms his father, killing him once and for all.

In Katherine Kurtz's Deryni novels, there are duels between opposing Deryni in which the energies they fire at each other create half-domes of opposing colors that push against each other. This works a bit like arm-wrestling — the more powerful sorcerer's arc will eventually overtake the other's, incapacitating or killing him. (And yes, the combatants are all men. The setting is based on medieval Europe, after all.)
The circle or dome is in fact a containment field erected for the safety of the onlookers. The only time we see control of the circle used as a direct conflict of wills is in the duel between Kelson and the Festillic claimant, who is a woman. There are plenty of high powered Deryni sorceresses around. Queen Jehana, a previously unknown and untrained Deryni, takes on Charissa, the villainess in Deryni Rising. Another Deryni lady fights in defense of her king in The Bastard Prince and Lady Richenda and Princess Morag use their powers in defense of their sons. One of the conventional rules of the Duel Arcane is ceding the first blow to a female opponent. Clearly women duel.

The various series/seasons of Super Sentai and Power Rangers have made liberal use of this. A few examples:
Seijuu Sentai Gingaman: the battle between the first Monster of the Week, Kolshizer, and Ginga Red's gingabeast, Ginga Lion, featured this kind of fight. The beams in this fight where Kolshizer's lasergun and Ginga Lion's fire breath. Through Gingaman footage, this same battle was also featured in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, with the monster and the gingabeast being renamed as Radster and Lion Galactabeast respectively.
Mahou Sentai Magiranger: The Heavenly Saint Snowgel and the Hades God Drake engage in an elemental opposites version, pitting ice vs. fire.
Power Rangers in Space: episode 18, "True Blue to the Rescue"; Storm Blaster (one of the cars from Power Rangers Turbo) and the Monster of the Week, Lionizer, engage in a Beam-O-War with their lasers. They are evenly matched, untill Justin and TJ tip the scales by adding their own lasers to that of Storm Blaster.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Kira's sonic scream against a brainwashed Tori's water blast. It ended in a tie, and they just kept fighting.
Power Rangers Wild Force has the Rangers versus the resurrected Org Generals using their combined-weapons finishers in a beam-o-war.
Power Rangers Super Megaforce episode "Vrak is Back Part 2", the Rangers' Megaforce Blaster and Vrak's power result in a beam-o-war. The Rangers at first strengthen their resolve, pushing it back to a tie, but then use their sidearm blasters to blast Vrak, knocking him down.

This happens multiple times in Fate/stay night, particularly when Saber's Noble Phantasm is involved. In the Fate route, she uses Excalibur against Gilgamesh's Ea three times; while she loses the first two times, the third time lets her create just enough of an opening to play her hidden trump card and defeat him. In the Heaven's Feel route, Rider opposes her by using her Pegasus as a beam-like attack rather than a mount, and manages to scrape by a win with the help of Shirou's Rho Aias.

Pokémon had a few of them. Notably an Ice Beam/Night Shade collision at the Orange League final, which exploded in a Yin-Yang esque light ball and knocked out both Pokemon.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
In the finale of season 2, Princess Celestia tries to defeat Queen Chrysalis of the Changelings by shooting out an arcing beam of magic from her horn. She tries to counter with one of her own and, to even her own surprise, is able to push back and stun Celestia, due to the strength of the love she has been feeding on.
The climax of Twilight and Tirek's battle in "Twilight's Kingdom, Part 2". This results in a stalemate that forces Tirek to try a different tactic, since brute force isn't getting the job done.
My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games has this during the climactic showdown between Daydream Shimmer; Sunset Shimmer's new Super Mode; and Midnight Sparkle; the Super-Powered Evil Side of Human Twilight Sparkle; likely in homage to the Gohan vs. Cell beam-o-war in Dragon Ball Z. Midnight initially has the upper hand until Puppy Spike briefly snaps her out of her rage, allowing Sunset/Daydream to prevail and change her back to Twilight.
Queen Chrysalis gets into another one with the traitorous Mean Twilight in "The Mean Six" during a power struggle. This time, thanks to being starved of love, Chrysalis finds herself on the losing end and would have been defeated if not for the Tree of Harmony reacting to the presence of the Mean Six and destroying them before she's overpowered.
Twilight gets into one to protect Star Swirl The Bearded from the Pony Of Shadows In the same episode, Starlight and Twilight get into one when the Pony Of Shadows fights back

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai's third game introduced this as a mechanic. Two beam attacks launched at the same time will create a reverse tug of war with both players frantically spinning their joy sticks, pushing their attack until it over powers the other and hits. This is enforced with only energy beam moves being able to trigger it, and blasts simply cancelling each other out, the one exceptions being Piccolo's Destruction Wave.

Asterix: In Asterix and the Magic Carpet the villainous fakir Owzat tries to stall Watziznehm and our heroes by driving his carpet head-to-head with theirs and projecting a beam of kinetic force at them. Watziznehm fires back the same way and the two fakirs spend the next several scenes deadlocked with their powers crackling in the air between them like lightning while invoking the 33 million Indian gods gods to curse each other, until Watziznehn breaks the stalemate by flying upwards and sending Owzat hurtling into a minaret.

The game G-Darius actually features this as a gameplay mechanic. Every one of the game's freaky giant robot fish bosses (or "Huge Battleships", in traditional Darius parlance) is armed with a giant beam cannon; luckily, your ship is armed with its own beam cannon, and with good timing and a lot of button-mashing you can turn the Beam-O-War shouting match against the enemy and kill it in one hit.
The presence of autofire in PS1 versions made these infinitely easier as it removes the button mashing aspect. However, as soon as later bosses Wave-Motion Gun fails to yours, they throw WMG-absorbing bullets directly at you, followed by bajillion bullets.
G-Darius Spiritual Predecessor Metal Black also has this mechanic.
Border Down, the other Spiritual Successor to Metal Black, also has it, and is necessary to rack up bullet-cancelling chains vital to high scores, which are needed to move up a border for the next stage.
Burst has the Burst Counter mechanic; if your Burst hits an enemy's Burst attack, it will amplify in power and give you a powerful score multiplier. Another Chronicle, however, requires you to time your Burst deployment; if you are anything short of perfect when you fly into the enemy beam or firing your beam at the same time, you won't get a Counter and you'll lose valuable shield points at best and an entire life at worst.

Two rapid-fire tanks facing off against each other in diep.io can create a situation like this due to that game's destructible projectiles.

In Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pegasus and Bakura have one between each of their Millennium Items using ancient Egyptian laser beams. Since Pegasus is exhausted after having already dueled Yugi, he loses and gets sent flying into a wall. The Abridged Series couldn't even think of anything to add, aside from Ominous Latin Chanting and a "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer. The ancient Egyptian laser beams have become a recurring joke.

There exists a comic crossover of Superman and Goku, where there is one of these between the former's heat vision and the latter's Kame Hame Ha. Except Supes wasn't really trying to push back the attack, he was piercing it to get close and punch Goku.

Beast Wars:
In the episode "Maximal, No More", Dinobot and Quickstrike clash beams in a sparring match (the former's being Eye Beams). Dinobot's beams are initially pushed back, but he wins by simply walking forward and closing the distance between them.
The episode "Double Dinobot" has a similar fight between Megatron's pink-ish arm laser and Dinobot's green Eye Beams. They form a roiling pink-and-green ball that's shoved back and forth. It ends when a missile from Optimus Primal strikes the ball and sends both combatants flying.
And in the final episode, Tigerhawk loses a Beam-O-War against the Decepticon warship Nemesis. The fact that he was even able to fight it is impressive.

Chapter Seven of Monsters In Paradise, a Touhou Project/Pokemon crossover, features a showdown between Marisa Kirisame's Magicannon: Final Master Spark and the Terraformation, a superweapon created to purge emotion-heavy life from existence. The Terraformation has the upper hand at first, but Marisa's Mismagius accidentally damages the Terraformation's power supply with an attack of her own, letting the Master Spark overwhelm the superweapon's output and destroy it.

There's a Beam-O-War between Lo Pan and Egg Shen in Big Trouble in Little China. Amusingly, instead of having the beams just push each other, a pair of Chinese swordsmen form in the middle of it and fight each other. Lo Pan makes finger movements as if he's controlling his fighter in a video game.

There are several instances in Pokémon Reset Bloodlines:
The battle between Ash's Pikachu and Brock's Onix ends with one of these, with Onix's Bide colliding against Pikachu's Thundershock. Pikachu manages to win, just barely.
Later, Ash is captured by Hunter J and during his escape he has to face against her and her Salamence, whose Flamethrower alone manages to overpower all of Ash's Pokémon attacks combined at once. They're only saved by Charmeleon learning Fire Pledge in the nick of time, and Goomy's intervention with Bide that blasts them out of the ship.
The climax of the Twenty Gyarados Bill Gaiden ends with a Hyper Beam collission between Bill's Mega-Gyarados and Denki's Mega-Ampharos. The resulting explosion leaves the former two fatally wounded, and kills the latter two.

The climax of Kirby Star Allies involves Void Termina unleashing a massive laser beam at Kirby and his pals as a last-chance move to get rid of them. They retaliate with another laser, resulting in this trope. Interestingly, only one hit does not suffice to destroy Void Termina, and Kirby and his friends have to go several rounds, each with a different button input.

Not quite a beam, and it's not extended, but a duel between Harry Dresden and Duchess Arianna Ortega in Changes of The Dresden Files starts with Harry throwing a beam of fire at her, and Arianna throwing a column of water. Neither blast connects with its intended target, instead instantly evaporating into super-heated steam, which Harry notes nearly killed the both of them anyway.

In Fate/Apocrypha, this is averted when the Sabers of Black and Red unleash their respective Sword Beams against each other. The two attacks don't so much "clash" as mix together and erupt into a giant Sphere of Destruction that blows away quite a few Mooks on either side of the conflict and end up damaging both of them, though they continue the fight with Saber of Red overpowering the fake Saber of Black.

In Doug, one of Doug's Quailman fantasies involves him fighting a mad scientist version of Roger Klotz who uses a hypnotizing "brain drain" ray. He counters it with his Quail Vision, and they are evenly matched until he turns on his "Quail High Beams" and wins.
That was actually two fantasies, and Quailman lost the one with the brain drain ray. The one where he won was when Dr. Klotzinstein had an ability called the "Eye of Klotz" which could turn people into rodeo clowns.

Queen of All Oni does something similar with Uncle and Jade's first Wizard Duel. She manages to force his chi back for about ten seconds, then he curb stomps her.

An interesting shield vs shield variation happens in Transformers Cybertron between Galvatron and Starscream, where their Battle Auras are extended as an attack and meet. This creates a spectacular lightshow, but is ultimately the warm-up and the battle is decided by Punch Parry instead.

Kingdom Hearts:
In Kingdom Hearts II, the final move of Sora and Riku's "Session" Combination Attack, "All's End," ends with the two drawing enemies into a Beam O' War between their two Keyblades.
In Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Ven and his final boss do this several times, the objective being to win the confrontations and charge up a Finishing Move.

In the Babylon 5 episode "Trust The Corps", a practice telepath attack/defend training session looked like the tentacle + shield variant.

Actually invoked at the end of Yu Yu Hakusho's Dark Tournament arc, when Toguro proposes he and Yusuke skip what would doubtless be a protracted battle, drop all their limiters and put everything into one blast, winner take all.

In one of the Inuyasha movies, a baddie copies Miroku's Wind Tunnel and they duel....somehow. You'd think they'd instantly suck each other up or something.

Sailor Moon often fights the Big Bad this way. One battle that stands out was when she fought the Snow Queen in her second movie.

Saint Seiya, the final battle between Aquarius Camus and Cygnus Hyouga. The latter even falls unconscious during it, having put his entire being into projecting the Aurora Execution attack at his master, who is moved to tears by his student's dedication. Hyouga still stands however, and is able to counter, disperse, and defeat Camus' own Aurora Execution by the sheer power of his will alone.
