* In the main game there are climactic battles at the end of each chapter. Moscow provides the best in and of itself as you close in on Konstatine Brayko, American 80s obsessed Russian mobster who just got done [[TortureTechnician torturing one of your allies]]. When you get to him, he's on a disco stage and the two of you engage in {{Pre Ass Kicking One Liner}}s set to a rousing guitar riff. When the battle starts, you realize it's [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Autograph's "Turn Up the Radio"]] (they originally planned to use [[WhatCouldHaveBeen "The Final Countdown"]]). As soon as you manage to drop to drop his health by a quarter, he shoots up on cocaine and [[KnifeNut comes at you with a knife]]. Accepted wisdom for this segment is to RUN until his high passes.

* Balek of ''Bring Down The Sky'' forces you into a SadisticChoice, let him escape or blow up the hostages. Choose the latter and after his boss fight you can kill him, repeatedly shoot him, and/or leave him to be taken in alive.

* The final boss of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': '''[[spoiler: Human-Reaper Embryo]]'''. You fight [[spoiler: a '''Reaper''']]. On ''foot''. Even if it's just [[spoiler: an incomplete one]], that's still one of the most awesome things in the entire game, and it's fought to some of the most awesome music in the game. Killing the [[spoiler: Human-Reaper Embryo]] pretty much confirms that yes, Shepard ''is'' the only one who can save the galaxy. [[spoiler: It also looks like the T-800 from ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' after its skin has been burned off.]] Reduced somewhat if you hit it with the Cain, a boss-killing mushroom-clouding explosive launcher that halves the boss' health if you hit it. (Which is more like taking off 1/4 of its health on the hardest difficulty.) Then again, using the Cain means you kill ''a giant mecha-Chtulhu with a nuclear bomb in the face''. Think about it.

* In Taipei you've been hounded by the [[GenreSavvy ruthless and capable]] [[MeaningfulName Omen Deng]] since you started trying to stop the assassination of Ronald Sung. Your final confrontation takes place on a [[GetBackHereBoss construction scaffold, climbing up to balcony facing the platform where Sung is speaking]] where Deng decides to make his [[YouShallNotPass final stand against you]]. [[spoiler: What neither of you have realized is that you're both trying to stop the assassination, and as the fight comes to a close the real assassin takes the shot...]]

* DragonAgeInquisition has the very final battle against the Elder One, [[spoiler: Corypheus]]. You've completely smashed his forces, and ruined all of his plans so that the Elder One has no choice but to [[spoiler: re-open the Breach]] to force a final confrontation. You fight him in the ruins of the Temple of the Sacred Ashes where the game began, but this time the Elder One uses his magic to [[spoiler: levitate the ruins into the air]]. This begins a running fight against the Elder One throughout the ruins while his pet dragon engages in an aerial battle against [[spoiler: a dragon of your ''own'' who is either Morrigan shapeshifted into one, or a special dragon you've gained the ability to command for this battle.]] Eventually you'll be forced to finish off the Elder One's dragon yourself before confronting him at the very top of the ruins for the very final part of the battle. [[spoiler:Defeating Corypheus for good and reducing him to a screaming wreck desperately calling out to Dumat for help before vaporizing him with the Anchor is a very satisfying end indeed.]]

* Citadel's DLC final boss is [[spoiler:your clone. It's the same class as you, and will use mostly the same powers you have. Yes, that means a Vanguard clone will charge/nova you. Who didn't charge at your clone as a Vanguard after s/he charged you?]]
** Not to mention everything else involved. Two squad members with you in ''extremely'' claustrophobic quarters ([[spoiler:the Normandy cargo hold]]), {{Mooks}} everywhere and [[spoiler:Maya Brooks]] firing on you at the same time. It is ''frantic''.

** Though it's more of a mini-boss, taking down a [[spoiler: thresher maw, whose main strategy for defeating it is to, according to the Alliance, use heavy ordinance like TANKS or, according to Zaeed, "Run the f**k away in the other direction"]] on ''foot'' when the mission only requires you to ''survive'' it for 5 minutes is a SugarWiki/MomentofAwesome, especially on Insanity difficulty. Even the krogan think so! If you manage to kill it the Krogan want to mate with you.
