* In ''Videogame/SonicForces'', the boss fight against Eggman as Classic Sonic seems easy enough, as it's a copy of the wrecking-ball bot from ''Videogame/SonicTheHedgehog1''. Sonic defeats him in a few hits, and Eggman flies upwards... to board the '''[[HumongousMecha Egg Dragoon]]'''!

* In ''Webcomic/Katamari'', towards the end of the tournament arc, Lucha and Opeo advance to the finals in the tournament, where their final opponents are apparently two generic grapplers. Lucha comments that the opponents lack flair and intimidating aura, and that they are not excessively menacing, yet strangely appropriate foes. [[spoiler: That's when a wrestler and a mummy drop down and pull a Super Street Fighter II Turbo by laying the smack-down on the grapplers, leading to the wrestler and the mummy being the true final opponents.]]

* In the Netflix animated series WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}, during a trip to the marshlands of Florida, our heroes [[MacGuffin questing for an important stone]] run afoul of a bad Troll known as the Fake-King Blungo. Despite what the flow of the episode seems to dictate, this fake king sticks around just long enough to non-lethally antagonize one of our heroes for a bit, before quickly and unceremoniously getting petrified by the much more menacing and pertinent threat of Angor Rot and his poisoned dagger. He takes over as the main threat for the remainder of the episode.

* ''VideoGame/ApeEscape 2'' has Hikaru/[[DubNameChange Jimmy]] finally meet Specter after defeating the Freaky Monkey Five.

A Bait-And-Switch Boss is those times when the apparent boss for the stage gets replaced by the real boss, who then steps up to the plate to challenge you. The primary version has the [[AlwaysABiggerFish boss destroy the 'bait' boss before he even attacks]], but some games may have you fight the lesser boss for a bit before the real boss takes his place.
