Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' your potions are refilled by killing enemies, and several unique items and class features give a temporary buff after killing an enemy. Most major bosses will periodically spawn mooks during the battle, such as Merveil summoning statues or siren spawn. One of the factors that makes [[LightningBruiser Daresso]] a seriously painful fight is that he doesn't create mooks.

* In ''VideoGame/BillyHatcherAndTheGiantEgg'', there are ''always'' several eggs lying around the boss arena, which will often reappear. Justified though, because you'd be [[{{Unwinnable}} f*** ed]] without them.

* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has some bosses that drop HP orbs under certain conditions and objects that drop HP orbs or (in the first game) even items if you're lucky. ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has [[{{DamselInDistress}} Megara]] supply HP and MP orbs during the second [[{{Disney/Hercules}} Olympus Coliseum]] boss fight.
* [[FinalBoss M.A.C.E]] from ''VideoGame/{{Intrusion 2}}''. Being a [[MarathonBoss Marathon]] DamageSpongeBoss, it's a good thing that he will sometimes take a huge container and dump its contents onto the battlefield, which contains some goodies like health and ammo ...as well as Mooks.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', during some decisive fights you can find a supply of heatsinks that replenishes after a while. You can even get a resupply of heavy weapons ammo (which normally is TooAwesomeToUse) while fighting the FinalBoss.

** Core-X and Hard Core-X in Metroid Fusion. The boss fight is basically over once the X mimic transforms into its true form because you could rapidfire the darn things and squirt out almost obscene numbers of green and yellow X parasites to heal and restock from.

* Most of the boss battles in ''NoMoreHeroes'' have at least one chest with a full-health recover and one with a full battery recharge. These are removed on [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels Bitter Difficulty]], in addition to the bosses being more aggressive.

* A strange version of this appears in ''YoshisStory'' with the boss Cloud N. Candy (which is a giant ball of cotton candy). The only way to beat it is to eat it, which heals you.

** The final battle of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}: Episode Two'' against a horde of Striders and Hunters is fought within easy access to several shacks that continuously restock themselves with [[HealThyself Medkits]] and ammunition for all weapons. Though some can easily be destroyed by the Striders there are some that always remain.
** ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' has small healing pools scattered around the final Boss area, in addition to the usual MedKits lying next to dead explorers.

* Berial, the first boss in ''DevilMayCry 4'', leaves behind health-restoring orbs when he smashes buildings. At least, until you get to the higher difficulties -- which turns him into a sort of WakeUpCallBoss if you were still expecting them.

* The final battles at the end of each era in ''BodyHarvest'' consist of you in a floaty-feeling hovercraft, battling an enormous creature that obliterates most of your shields with each hit in a dish shaped crater, and your weapons gobble down ammo at an astonishing rate. Fortunately, the boss drops a bunch of powerups whenever it soaks up enough damage, so the fights tend to consist of getting knocked around the crater like a billiard ball while trying to swoop under the boss to collect powerups it drops.
* While it doesn't have normal boss fights, the ''MedalOfHonor'' series provides its inexplicable health restoration in the form of medkits that drop from dead enemy soldiers.

** In [[VideoGameDragonAgeOrigins the original game]], the sections of the game that take place in the Fade have lyrium veins in the ares where you fight bosses. You can use them to recharge your health (and mana for mages). Unless your character is a dwarf.
