Added DiffLines:

*** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon Ultra Sun and Moon]]'' expands on this. First, the Looker sidequests are replaced with Episode RR, which features Team Rainbow Rocket, a team built up from the villain teams of the first six generations, meaning that all their leaders can be fought, with them using the Legendaries that were central to their plans in their original games. The matches where the player defends their Champion title are also altered, with two trainers being replaced, while the two rival characters have much stronger teams this time. The player can also revisit the first trial, but with the Totem Pokemon at a much higher level. The player also gets a chance to catch a new Ultra Beast during the post-game, with the original Ultra Beasts being found in their own dimensions. The dimensional travel also lets the player battle all the Legendaries of previous generation, similar to ORAS.

** Dreadsylvania has two possible bosses for each of the three zones: the Dreadsylvania Woods ends with either Falls-From-Sky, a [[EldritchAbomination bugbear made of stars]] that hits with a variety of powerful elemental attacks, or [[PunnyName the Great Wolf]] [[{{Airwolf}} of the Air]], a hard-hitting winged werewolf; the Dreadsylvania Village has either Mayor Ghost, who randomly prevents you from dealing elemental damage, using spells or skills, or using combat items in the next round, or the Zombie Homeowner's Association, which is virtually immune to abilities that don't do extra damage to group monsters; finally, the Dreadsylvania Castle ends with either the Unkillable Skeleton, who scales to your stats, prevents use of combat items, and is only vulnerable to physical damage, or Count Drunkula, who takes drastically less damage unless your character is severely inebriated, and must be defeated in ten rounds.

*** [[spoiler:Birdo, Glass Man, and The Moon]] from the first game can be fought after completing the Wily stages, with new patterns and more health.

to:

*** Fighting [[spoiler:Milk]] after defeating the boss of Tier 9 causes it to transform into [[spoiler:Strawberry Milk]], which keeps the same basic pattern as the original fight but with different and stronger attacks.
*** [[spoiler:Birdo, Glass Man, and The Moon]] from the first game can be fought in Tier 10 after completing the Wily stages, with new patterns and more health.

Their difficulty is usually much beyond that of the "story line" final boss. Occasionally, games may have more than one Bonus Boss. The key point here is that they make up the most difficult enemies in the game, and that includes the actual last boss of the game. Sometimes, the player may acquire an InfinityPlusOneSword or ability once they beat this extraordinarily difficult enemy, but it's usually a BraggingRightsReward. Anyone who can beat the Bonus Boss has proved they don't need them, unless it's to fight another Bonus Boss even harder than the last one.
