** And then there's her dialogue. By TvTropes definition she may be a NietzscheWannabe, but if Nietzsche were a Jedi, she'd have convinced him to curl up and die a long time ago.

[[AC: PlanescapeTorment]]
* ''PlanescapeTorment'' has, as its approximate halfway point, Ravel Puzzlewell. The environs the fight takes place in are suitably creepy, and the preceding conversation has established her as nothing less than an outright ManipulativeBastard. She also summons [[WhenTreesAttack giant, corrupted tree-things]] to do her bidding, and her spells are nothing to sneeze at either.

[[AC: DungeonSiege III]]
* ''DungeonSiege III'' is full of these. From the fight against [[TheDragon Rajani]] [[spoiler: (another archon)]] who sets most of the arena on fire, through the Warbeast battle - a humongous monster in a mine, with enemies pouring in and friendly cannonballs exploding everywhere, the [[MookMaker Dapper Old Gent]], all the way to a ''5 stage brawl'' against [[BigBad Jayne]], the penultimate stage being a 2vs3, where the bosses ''combo your ass into oblivion!'' Hands down the best Obsidian boss fights.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' might not have the best combat system, but we get the boss fight at the end against Saren. You can fight him, or you can talk him into [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled shooting himself in the head to escape indoctrination.]]

** The Knight gets to fight the [[spoiler: Sith Emperor himself. (Maybe. It's unclear if you really killed him or just knock him down for a while.)]] Your only backup is the little astromech, you're in the center of the Dark Temple itself, and at one point, he spawns ''five'' clones of himself to battle.

** The ''Shadow of Revan'' expansion: First of all, "Torch." [[spoiler: aka Shae Vizala, the Bounty Hunter who accompanied Malgus on his raid of the Jedi Temple]] The fact all the bosses are labeled in [[BilingualBonus Mando'a]] is a big clue as to what you're in for. Mandos love a good scrap, and Torch is hardly an exception. She uses her jetpack to rocket around an arena with holes in the floor venting volcanic heat, sometimes setting all but the edges of it on fire, shooting at the players and encouraging them to keep fighting in Basic and ''Mando'a.'' Even in defeat, she is very cordial by Mando standards. Needless to say, it made many players ''delighted'' when she showed up in the next expansion, both as an ally [[spoiler: and taking the title Mandalore the Avenger]].
** Second one from the expansion: [[spoiler: Revan's back...well, just his Dark Side which refuses to die]] and has gone ''completely'' insane, threatening to drain all life from Yavin IV in a half-baked idea to kill his archenemy once and for all. So, it's your character backed up with a ''astonishing'' small army of important [=NPCs=] like Darth Marr, Grandmaster Satele, and [[spoiler: the future Mandalore the Avenger]]. Said boss puts up the kind of fight you'd expect from someone who was a galactic legend.

* 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 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...]]
