** One happens later through the game. You finally catch the culprit and he uses his [[SummonMagic Summon Magic]] to call out the Elemental Dispatcher... which appears to be rather busy at the moment. Still, the fight ensues with the Elemental chatting someone on the phone while nonchalantly providing aid to your enemy. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny It's hilarious to watch since she is just as big as the castle you are in and she couldn't just be bothered to just finish the fight in an instant.]]

** Partial examples: Ado from ''Dream Land 3'' and Adeleine from ''[[VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards The Crystal Shards]]''. Both characters are [[ArtInitiatesLife artists whose drawings come to life]], and most of the battle is actually against previous Kirby boss characters that they summon while they hide behind their easels. Ado/Adeleine only come out to assault Kirby personally at the very end, at which point a single attack defeats them.

* ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'': Baby Bowser's amped-up magical form, as shown in the header picture. Unique in that he uses the powers of [[SuperNES SuperFX]] to slowly stomp toward the foreground, looming larger and larger. Also unique in that instead of a ColossusClimb or other attempt to exploit his large geometry, the fight consists of the two of you shelling each other (with actual eggshells, no less) over long background distances. You need to use the shells to knock him back, or else he destroys the platform you're standing on.
