Kiting is a term used in massive multiplayer online role playing games and refers to the actions of one or more characters intentionally allowing a creature to chase him (or them) around. Generally, this is accomplished through the clever use of Gravity or Bind to slow down the enemy character.

The character can equip items or use buff spells or songs to help achieve the desired effect, such as Chocobo Mazurka in Final Fantasy XI, which increases the player's speed. The purpose is to make sure the enemy wants to attack the person kiting, and for the character to remain outside of physical attack range of the enemy as much as possible.
