* The Hellgate from ''TacticsOgre'' was 100 levels deep, and interestingly actually tied into the plot, as the bottom level was where one of the [[BonusBoss villains]] in the game had retreated to. Beating him didn't change the main plot of the game, though. In order to get the ultimate "bragging" item in the game, one had to go through the Hellgate twice, as well as get 4 specific weapons from special encounters with recolored monsters.

* The ''{{Pokemon}}'' games have these, starting with Mewtwo's lair, the Cerulean Cave in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. They are inaccessable until after you've beaten the game, and at the end lies a powerful legendary Pokemon for the player to catch, making it both a BonusBoss and an InfinityPlusOneSword. Generations II and III possess a different variant. After the bonus dungeon you encounter, rather than a high-level Pokémon, a trainer with ''six'' high-level Pokémon, often the highest in the game. In GSC this is [[spoiler:Red, the protagonist of the original games as well as the male choice of protagonist in their [[VideoGameRemake remakes]], ''[=FireRed=]''/''[=LeafGreen=]'', with a party including a level 80 ''Pikachu'' and 70+ versions of all three original starters, Snorlax...and Espeon, for some reason. HGSS replaces the Espeon with a Lapras. The whole match has continous hail and all of there levels have been buffed up. ''Pikachu'' is level 88 now!]] In Emerald it's [[spoiler:Steven, the mandatory FinalBoss of the first two games of that generation, now cranked up to 11 as a BonusBoss. He has a similar team to the previous game (which was bad enough), but now they're all around level 80 rather than 50-60.]] Both fights are bragging rights only and give no real reward (although they are in fact repeatable, making them among the best spots to grind high-level Pokémon).

* A similar Pit of 100 Trials is also found in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario''. And after beating ''Super Paper Mario'', you can do [[spoiler: all of Chapter 6, and there are no interruptions this time. You need to beat all 100 fighters in a row without leaving. However, unlike the Pit of 100 Trials, you save after every 25 fighters, making it somewhat easier. After defeating End Boss, who is somewhat of a BonusBoss, you get a Bragging Rights Reward: Catch Cards for the partners from the previous game.]]

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' has the Cave of the Nadir which requires a lengthy process to unlock: you need to first complete two opportunity card-based stories, then do a time-consuming expedition to find the Cave's entrance with a rare item that [[ArtifactOfDoom drains your attributes if you hold on to it for too long]], and finally pay a huge amount of money or find five of the aforementioned ArtifactOfDoom to actually open the Cave. After all that, your reward is the ability to explore a place that gives you opportunities to acquire valuable, hard-to-get items but [[LevelDrain erodes your attributes]] the longer you stay in there with a description of [[NightmareFuel your skull bones trying to grow over your eyes]] if you stay too long. Essentially, it trades the typical "slay extremely tough opponents!" bonus dungeon set-up for a "get valuable items dirt-cheap...if you're willing to weaken yourself!" set-up.

* ''VideoGame/IttleDew'' has a couple: ** The Master Cave is home to the game's very hardest puzzles. It even requires you to use techniques you never need anywhere else. ** The Compost Crypt was added after launch in a Halloween update. It features more of a balance between combat and puzzles. Notably, the enemies can't be frozen, making them immune to a cheap [[LiterallyShatteredLives freeze-then-smash]] kill.
