* ''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.

Although some of the content are loosely ties in tied with the overall plot, completing it them 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.raids, with the latter having a Savage version which brings more mechanics to challenge the team.
** ''The Unending Coil of Bahamut'' takes the cake as the first raid content to be pegged at the '''Ultimate''' difficulty. And it certainly doesn't disappoint, as it consists of embellished and fiercer version of the final turn for each part of the Binding Coils of Bahamut (Turn 5, 9 and 13), with all of them [[TurnsRed pulling all their stops at the get-go compared to regular Coil]], culminating with Bahamut Prime dropping [[ColonyDrop a mini-Dalamud]] to the stage and sends powerful shockwaves that will wipe the party if not mitigated with a Limit Break from a tank-role player. And then after the Tera Flare phase, Bahamut Prime proceeds to [[TurnsRed unleash its inner rage]] in its golden form, and starts to spam Akh Morn and Exaflare, and if it was not defeated quickly it will begin to spam Morn Afah (appropriately means "eternal death" in dragon language) until the whole party is wiped out. Clearing the Unending Coil demands a great amount of team synergy and their proficiency with the battle mechanics much more than any other raids before it, to the point that Deltascape 4.0 Savage (the highest-level raid content when Unending Coil was released) is a mandatory requirement ''just to enter it''. Furthermore, at the time of its release, none of the participants were able to clear it within the first week, with the world first clear happens on the 11th day after the release. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Ultimate challenge (The Weapon's Refrain) will follow in its footsteps.

* ‘’X’’ gets in on the action with Event Raids, raid bosses encountered through a specific event. And ‘’holy shit’’, can they soak damage. The first really bad one, the first Halloween’s Fortress Crab raid, had ‘’99,000,000’’ HP at ‘’level 1’’. Later ones can take a pounding from even the most powerful parties whaling on it with the metagame’s top medals. Fortunately, pack a few defense boosting medals with your attack boosts and you can just leave the raid running(with the game’s nifty [[AntiFrustrationFeatures auto attack button]]), and go do something else while your character slaughters it.

*** 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 Will", 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'']].

** ''Birth By Sleep''[='=]s international release adds a new boss, another Unknown: the English speaking fandom calls him "The Mysterious Figure", a name taken from the strategy guide, to differentiate him from the first Unknown. [[spoiler:He's revealed to be a time-traveling young Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts 3D.]] A black-coated, dual-laser-blade-wielding mofo, this boss has put the rest of the series's [[ThatOneBoss famously batshit hard bosses]] to shame. So far, the only known strategies for beating it are "Spam Dodge Roll with Ventus and pray" and "Spam Thunder Surge with anyone and pray".

*** Outside of DLC, there's Spotpass character [[spoiler:Priam, descendant of Ike]]. His map has you field ''30'' units, which is essentially ''your entire roster'' and one of the highest unit counts in FE ever. [[spoiler:Priam]] himself is equipped with three Breaker skills, Sol, Luna, and nearly maxed stats making him quite a challenge to defeat.

** ''TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': Lynels are only ever needed to be encountered once in the game, and even then you are not required to beat it (and can even skip it entirely if you find another way to obtain Lightning Arrows). They are the most difficult reoccurring [[BossInMookClothing basic enemy]] in the game, and for a while the most powerful variant, the [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority Silver Lynel]] (who has more health than the ''final boss'' of the game) can only be encountered in the half-destroyed Coliseum, before eventually starting to spawn naturally in the wild. [[HarderThanHard Master Mode]] of the game introduces an even stronger version of the Lynel, the [[GoldColoredSuperiority Golden Lynel]]!

* ''FatalFrame'' has a particular optional boss only on the Xbox version. A samurai ghost named "Armoured Warrior" who only appears on the final night on the hardest difficulty, who can instantly kill you if he touches you ''AT ALL''. Oh, and he's fully invisible too. And he can't be pushed back with a critical shot like every other ghost can be so he's ALWAYS coming towards you without stopping. Again, being invisible, you can't see him but rather HEAR him, unless you get a shot of him fading in and out quickly while looking through the camera, which is the only real way to defeat him.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{SaGa}}'' series, most of the '''game''' is optional, including many of the bosses. ''VideoGame/{{SaGa Frontier}}'' does have a few optional bosses who are '''particularly''' difficult, including the Earth Dragon in the Bio Research Lab, and [[Main/TheComputerIsACheatingBastard cheating bastard]] Jotnar, who likes to employ his most powerful attack four consecutive times on his second turn.

*** Completing [[spoiler:[[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Null and Void]]]] allows you to face off against [[spoiler:Absolute Zero, a much more powerful version of the first game's Zero?, with four forms. [[ClippedWingAngel Though it gets easier as it goes on.]]]]

The regular Arena has Quick Man and [[spoiler:a souped-up [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 Gamma]]]]; the Mega Arena has [[spoiler:an army of Volt Men]]; and the True Arena has [[spoiler:Absolute Zero again, this time with a fifth form]].
