A bonus dungeon is a difficult optional dungeon that's usually not directly connected to the main game's story. Sometimes, hardcore gamers, especially fans of [=RPGs=], feel cheated that the popularization of video games has led to a lessening in difficulty. As such the bonus dungeon offers a added challenge near the end of the game or [[NewGamePlus after]].

The BonusDungeon will be bigger, badder, and with more levels than the other stages in the game. It will be filled with new monsters. Sometimes game designers cut corners by making all the monsters here simple [[PaletteSwap recolors]] of common monsters, but with [[UndergroundMonkey higher stats]].

Where the BonusBoss usually lives. As mentioned, hardcore gamers (especially fans of [=RPGs=]) often feel cheated that the popularization of video games has led to a lessening in difficulty.

*** Speaking of Deathclaws, there's also Dead Wind Cavern, at the end of which is another BonusBoss, the Legendary Deathclaw, guarding the unique grenade machine gun [[ICallItVera named Mercy]].

* ''VideoGame/JimmyAndThePulsatingMass'' has one that can be accessed by [[spoiler:moving Punch Tanaka's pile of crashed motocycles using the Low-Level Goon form]] in the Wilted Lands. It is [[SurpriseCreepy strikingly different in tone than the rest of the game]], containing a creepy, claustrophobic environment that shifts to trap you inside and features creepy, hand-like rock formations. At the end lies [[SnakesAreSinister Slither]], a very difficult BonusBoss.

** The SNES/SFC remake of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIII'' includes a new bonus dungeon which also adds a small piece to the story, enabling the hero to [[spoiler:revive his dead father as a wish granted by a [[DragonBall Shenlong]]-like dragon... and part of the bonus dungeon itself is a sky castle the game calls "Zenithia" according to translations, suggesting a connection to Dragon Quest IV]]. The GBC version takes it a step further with an additional, story-less dungeon and boss to fight after that one... ''if'' the player can collect every single randomly-dropped Monster Medal in the game.

* ''BaldursGate: [[ExpansionPack Tales of the Sword Coast]]'' contains Durlag's Tower, a looming castle crammed full of thoroughly unpleasant enemies - and [[LudicrousGibs very large traps]].
* ''BaldursGate II: [[ExpansionPack Throne of Bhaal]]'' gives us Watcher's Keep, a five-story dungeon (plus one extra for the boss fight) featuring some of the most complex puzzles and challenging fights in the game, eventually climaxing in a fight with [[spoiler:Demogorgon]], who is not only, as a good BonusBoss should be, the most poweful enemy in the game, but [[spoiler:the most powerful being in the entire [[ForgottenRealms setting]]!]]
