*** The Final Mix version went overboard with this: First, there are the Absent Silhouettes, shadowy spirits of the five members of the Organization who had died in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories the previous game]] that have different tactics and a different level of strength since then. But those are child's play compared to what you can access after you've beaten the game; at the end of Hollow Bastion [[spoiler:/Radiant Garden]]'s BonusDungeon, the Cavern of Remembrance, we find the Garden of Assemblage, where data replicas for all thirteen members of the Organization are, and their threat levels are UpToEleven. But none of those replicas, not even Xemnas, can match the last Bonus Boss in the game: a mystery Keyblade Master named the "Lingering Sentiment", found through a portal in Disney Castle. He is hands-down ''THE hardest boss in the game''...and like the Unknown, it's very easily justified when you find out who he is: [[spoiler:the soul of Terra, trapped inside his armor after Master Xehanort took over his body in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'']].

** ''VideoGame/PersonaQ'' continues the tradition of having the residents of the Velvet Room be overpowered bonus bosses, though for the most part things are a bit easier. You can fight Elizabeth several times throughout the game, with her difficulty slowly increasing over time [[spoiler:and eventually, she's possessed by Zeus]]. Margaret is also an optional battle, in which [[spoiler:you fight her two on one with the protagonist you didn't pick, in order to unlock your ultimate Personas]]. However, it wouldn't be a crossover game if you didn't have a chance to fight Elizabeth, Theodore, and Margaret simultaneously. They can even do an [[CombinationAttack All-Out Attack]] every five turns, though they're more forgiving than they are in the base games.

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' and ''RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'' has Beelzebub. ''Soulless'' is particularly vicious as he requires three items to be fought, all of which have to be acquired through ZergRush battles with 100 enemies each; these will tend to be DemonicSpiders. Then, he will be fought amidst ''another'' ZergRush. Pray none of your healing demons get Charmed, as he will use and abuse any attacks which can inflict said ailment to jack up his health.

** While nowhere near as insane as Elizabeth, the Reaper that can be fought in both version of P3 is no slouch when it comes to making a normal player tear their hair out. It's fond of casting spells that hit the whole party for 700-800 damage and going insane on unblockable "almighty" spells if the player sets up reflecting items. This one is more infuriating to the average player due to the fact that he appears when the player spends too long in Tartarus, the game's central randomly generated dungeon. He makes a return in Persona 4, and is found while opening a chest (although the game warns you about it and gives you two chances to back out).

* The Gargoyle in Koudelka, on Disc 3/4. At the same time, it's also ThatOneBoss - because even for a bonus boss, it is just insane. Also, it's a HopelessBossFight on Disc 2 - when the titular heroine fights it alone, she'll deal no damage and will be forced to run away.

* ''PathOfExile'' has Atziri, the last queen of Vaal. Getting to her is no cakewalk, though. To reach her domain, you need all four Vaal fragments, which can only be found in the rare and difficult Corrupted zones. Defeating her nets you a sweet Unique, but that's not all. She also drops an advanced Vaal fragment, and if you find all four pieces of those, you get the pleasure of fighting Uber Atziri. Accomplishing that monumental task nets you an extremely powerful end-game Unique.

** Izaro lies in [[MarathonLevel the Labyrinth]]. He hits hard
and is always assisted by his Goddess who attacks independently from him. He's fought in three stages. The first two adds a gimmick that changes daily and need to be dealt with if you find all don't want it to carry over to the next phase and the last phase is in a room filled with traps. He's well worth the challenge if you want the power of those Ascendancy Classes. Also inside the Labyrinth is his pet Argus, who may as well be considered one due to how hard he hits.

Rigwald the Wolven King can be fought in the Talisman league with a hefty sacrifice of five tier 3 talismans (although a weaker version of him exists as a map boss).

** ''0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-'' has a bonus BossRush. It starts with a Darkside, two waves of Heartless, and a Demon Tower, but the final opponent and the true contender of Bonus Boss? [[spoiler:A buffed version of [[MirrorBoss Phantom Aqua]]]], who is essentially THE hardest boss of the game. Some of her attacks are unblockable, indicated by [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience red trails]], and she has very little cues. You'd better be ready for her, or else she'll wrech you.
