** Averted in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV:ThePhantomPain'', where the first encounter with the SKULLS you're supposed to win gives you a homing rocket launcher with which to win it. You only get 8 shots, and each of the four Parasite Units takes two hits. Nevermind the optional objective of taking down a nearby helicopter.

* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' mocks the player using this trope. In the fight against plague spreader Bishop Vick, a few human shamble around the room. They look like free blood refills, but drinking even a little will cause your character to stand in place and vomit uncontrollably until you're killed. Serves you right for forgetting [[spoiler:that he's spreading a massively infectious virus]].

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.
