* The Pfhor cyborg from ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' is the only boss in the game. He dies with less than one load of your pistol, although his countless guards will kill you if you do something stupid. Very fast.

* ''{{Undertale}}'' has secret boss, [[spoiler: Mettaton NEO]], available only in the Genocide Run. The previous boss, [[spoiler:Undyne the Undying]], was one of the most difficult fights in the game, so one may think that this boss ramps up the difficulty even further. Not so; [[spoiler:Like most other Genocide bosses, he can be killed in a single turn.]]

It is [[ForegoneVictory impossible to lose]].]]

** [[spoiler:The Curse]], mixed, oddly enough, with a HopelessBossFight. It's shaped up to be a big threat and has [[spoiler:wiped out almost all Joons]] in the past. You're given the game's most powerful weapons and spells before the final fight, but they eventually prove to be useless and you can't damage the Curse with them, while it kills you in a single hit. The only thing you can do (and all you need to do) is to leave [[spoiler:Tka-Rik]] to fight the Curse, cast Weaken on it and/or Strength on him, and heal him when necessary to ensure victory.

* The FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' is stationary, it's "attacks" are just pile of random stuff revolving around it and you have to try real hard to get in its way. You have an unlimited supply of weapons and it goes down in about three shots.

** The final boss, who is a goddamn Daemon-Prince, is defeated almost entirely through a series of QTE-events.

* While far from a pushover, the FinalBoss battle with Andross in ''StarFox64'' is easier than most of the other bosses in the second half of the game. He's also arguably easier on the harder path; while the final stage of the fight takes longer, has a smaller target area, and has more devastating attacks, it's also slow and immobile and faced in All-Range move whereas the final stage of the easier one stays in corridor mode, making its attack tough to dodge.

** For the most recent example in the series, ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheRainbowCurse'' has [[spoiler:Dark Crafter]]. He rivals Dark Nebula in the most disappointing of Kirby final bosses. His only real attack is throwing bombs. He is especially easy compared to [[VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse Drawica Soul]].

*** After Zinnia, you face Deoxys, a powerful Mythical Pokémon previously only encountered via real life limited-time events. At level 80, ten levels higher than Rayquaza, you'd expect a great challenge. And you get that... if you try and catch it there and then. Unfortunately, in a straight-up battle, while Deoxys is quick and powerful, [[GlassCannon it can't take]] [[FragileSpeedster hits very well]], meaning just about anything from Mega Rayquaza will knock it out... assuming it doesn't get one-shot by Deoxys, that is.

Even then, Deoxys's only attacks are [[AwesomeButImpractical Hyper Beam]] (which leaves it a sitting duck for a turn) and [[SecretArt Psycho Boost]] (which gets less dangerous the more often it's used).

** Zinnia in the remakes' Delta Episode. Faced at the climax of the plot, a powerful Lorekeeper with a team of powerful dragons that wants to stop a catastrophe by harnessing the power of Rayquaza. Her team includes [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Mega Salamence, Noivern, Altaria, Goodra and Tyrantrum]]. With such a setup and such a GameBreaker pokémon on her team, you'd think this would be a challenging boss battle, right? It would be...if not for the fact you'll more than likely sweep all of her Pokémon with your newly-adquired [[GameBreaker Mega]] [[OlympusMons Rayquaza.]]

* Given how much trouble Bob-ombs give you in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', you'd likely expect Big Bob-omb (named King Bob-omb in later games) to be a worthy opponent. He isn't. He can't hurt Mario at all, and just walks around, the objective being to throw him three times without throwing him off the mountain. Not much of a challenge, not much of a boss.

Granted he was likely intended to help the players adjust to fighting in a 3 dimentional environment rather than provide an actual challenge like the future bosses.
