* ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', once again, brings back [[spoiler:the X bosses, but having dropped the X - same concept, but with no name. Bowser X and Bowser Jr. are succeeded by Dry Bowser]].

* ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' has a feature known as the Ultra Boss. You need a specific party member in your line-up when fighting a specific boss under certain conditions - usually having cleared a minimum number of quests. They're a pretty clear step up, but winning gets you a stat boost, bonus stats and a new piece of equipment that grants a party member exclusive move. * ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}'' has two post-game bosses. One is implied to be a GreaterScopeVillain for the creator's future projects and the other tied into the SequelHook.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' features a slew of battles off the beaten path for end-game players. Although some of the content loosely ties in with the overall plot, completing it isn't necessary to advance the story. Hard Mode and Extreme Mode versions of the Primal fights are available to tackle, along with the bosses in the intermediate 24-man, and hardcore 8-man, raids.

* Rodin makes a return in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'', this time available if the player buys the Platinum Ticket for a staggering 9,999,999 halos. Unlike his encounter in the first game, you can use [[BulletTime Witch Time]] against him, since Infinite Climax difficulty no longer disables that feature, but beyond that Rodin is actually HarderThanHard this go around, especially since you start fighting him in his normal form, before he TurnsRed and becomes [[OurDemonsAreDifferent The Infinite One]]. And this time around, there isn't any phone cheat if you want that Rodin weapon.

The first deletion is way too vague. If anyone knows which boss it is and can explain it, they can add it again. Yogg-Saron is a Final Boss, not a Bonus Boss.
** Just in case that isn't enough (likely, given how hardcore some fans of the game can be), many of these same bosses have special conditions that can be attained for Achievements (a BraggingRightsReward, since you can't do anything with the points you accumulate from achievements), which often turn fairly normal bosses into insanity. For example, one of these takes place in a dungeon where there are minibosses that you can kill to make the main boss easier; for the achievements, you have to leave at least one of the minibosses alive until you engage the main boss. For the hardest achievement, all three get to stay up, and ''they come help the main boss while you're fighting him''. *** Yogg-Saron, the final boss of [[TailorMadePrison Ulduar]], has a similar hard mode: you are required to defeat his four jailers, the Watchers (whom he's driven mad; defeating them restores their sanity) in order to open the path to Yogg's chamber. If you ask, they'll help you in the fight against Yogg-Saron. The achievements for defeating Yogg-Saron take the form "X Lights in the Darkness", where X is the number of jailers you ask to help you. Asking ''none'' of the jailers to help you is referred to as "Yogg+0", and is -- even two updates later -- the hardest fight in the game.

** In ''Dark Dawn'', Star Magician and Dullahan get buffed up, with Star Magician getting three new mook types (Curse, Death, and Ghoul) and Dullahan getting Valukar's Crucible move. There's also the Ogre Titans, a group of five increasingly powerful physical attackers, and the Ancient Demon, who can take over one character with Demon Sign.

* RuneScape has two types of bosses in its lore: the first are known as quest bosses - one time fights to advance plot; the other are BonusBoss monsters, where killing them is either a fun way of passing the time, or provides high level loot not available anywhere else. Many of them require quests to access, such as the [[{{Undead}} Corporeal Beast]]; while others are just in a dangerous area, such as the [[EldritchAbomination Chaos Elemental]]. The FinalBoss title is granted to anyone strong enough to beat 5000 of these bonus bosses, which includes 100 kills of each kind of boss. The Dominion Tower gives rewards for those who can defeat the quest bosses once more.

** The Whip's Memory, an image of Richter Belmont in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'', is part of a ritual to unlock the [[InfinityPlusOneSword true power]] of a [[MagikarpPower weakened Vampire Killer whip]]. Unlike the rest of the game, you can only battle this boss with Jonathan. Thankfully, "dying" in this battle just boots you out of the battle with full HP and MP instead of yielding a Game Over.

Portrait of Ruin also has the Nest of Evil, a bonus painting that contains many bosses, mostly ones from Dawn of Sorrow, and then the Doppleganger.
