* 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.

** Imperial Players get the Foundry flashpoint instead. You already know you're in for a hell of a fight when the first boss introduces himself with [[spoiler: Statement: Silence, meatbags!]]. But you discover he's just the {{Dragon}} to a crazed Jedi who plans to wipe out ''98 percent'' of the Imperial population (too bad no one informs the Imperial players their own Emperor wants to wipe out 100% of the galactic population...). And by the time you reach [[spoiler: Revan]], he puts up a ''devastating'' LastStand, telekentically hurling heavy objects, throwing Force Lightening, and even [[ShoutOut "becoming more powerful]] [[Film/ANewHope than you can possibly imagine]]." It all ends in a painful IronicEcho.
