* Between the end of the Baskar Ruins and the Valeria Chateau siege in ''VideoGame/WildARMS2'', you're forced to battle ''five'' bosses in succession (GehennaNeros, [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Antenora(I), Judecca(I)]], Blastodon and Alphael), with only plot advancement in between. Having to repeatedly endure the BossSubtitles is a maddening experience.

** The four Team Rocket Executives. On three separate occasions earlier in the game you battle one of them at the end of a location. Then, when they infiltrate the Radio Tower, you have to face all three of them in a row before going straight to facing the fourth head Executive.
** The Kimono Girls of Ecruteak City, who must be fought after the final Gym Leader but before the Elite Four.

** After Freege is captured, four bosses charge towards it from the east, three of them fulfilling the otherwise player-exclusive Pegasus Trio archetype, while a fifth boss comes onto the scene from the south with a few troops, near Chalphy, which can result in a quick game over if Chalphy is left unguarded and is captured. [[spoiler:Mercifully, you can fend off this threat with a single unit, provided it's the right unit--Altenna can talk to this boss to turn him and his troops into allied [=NPCs=].]] Once you fend off the four bosses charging from the direction of Belhalla--where the FinalBoss awaits, surrounded by ''twelve other bosses'' who will move to attack any units within range but will otherwise retreat back towards Belhalla, making it impossible to lure them away--you're expected to sneak ''past'' this barrage of bosses for the moment (note also that Julius has long-range magic) and defeat TheHeavy, Manfroy, at Velthomer, while ''not'' defeating the other boss-level enemy guarding Velthomer because she's one of ''your'' units whom Manfroy captured and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] and talking to her after capturing Velthomer allows you to rerecruit her, which is ''almost'' a necessity for defeating Julius.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Rekka No Ken]]'' pits you in the final chapter against NINE bosses, though not all at once, thankfully. And when you're done, you fight the FinalBoss, though that's ''technically'' another stage. Otherwise, you face one or ''maybe'' two bosses per chapter, tops.

* The currently final levels of ''VideoGame/BrutalMario'' have this, Bowser's Castle having 8 different bosses in it including the end one. Then again, so do a lot of VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld game mods, ASuperMarioThing has a significant amount of bosses in the void level as well. And Super Mario Infinity has more than a few, one of the last levels has about SIXTEEN boss fights in it, albeit with them all being with one of exactly two different characters.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', there's the endgame of a Neutral/Pacifist run. At the end of the CORE, Mettaton EX is fought. After beating him, you move onto New Home, where you get numerous plot revelations before fighting Asgore. Once he goes down, Flowey returns, hijacks the entire game, and goes OneWingedAngel as the FinalBoss of the Neutral Route. If no one has been killed prior to Asgore, you can reload the save file and, after some backtracking and a few events, enter the True Lab, where you fight five tough mini-bosses. After escaping, Flowey becomes the TrueFinalBoss, Asriel Dreemurr.

** ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'': Stage 2 of Rainbow Resort consists of a tower with minibosses fought in the previous levels(minus Grand Wheelie, who is not fought until Stage 5). [[note]] In order: Poppy Bros. Sr., Mr. Tick-Tock, Mr. Frosty, Bonkers, Rolling Turtle/Phan Phan, Bugzzy and Fire Lion. [[/note]]
** In ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad'', though it's not at the every end of the game, World 5-3 has you fight Bonkers, Gao Gao, Big Metalun, and finally Storo (if you don't get the large treasure chest, you fight Mr. Frosty in Storo's place). Perhaps of more significance, though, is World 6-5 that has you fight every member of the Squeaks (Spinni, Storo, and Doc, in order) other than the leader Daroach, who is fought immediately after the previous level as a boss.

* ''[=YuGiOh=] World Championship 2011'' has you fight the final three bosses one after another in a single Turbo Duel. That means no healing in between fights, no adjusting your deck, and cards don't change location - cards in the graveyard stay there unless a card that affects them is activated. The worst part is that this is a team duel...and you're on ''anchor''. Your other two teammates did zero damage and have the battle start with you at a disadvantage.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonHeartGoldAndSoulSilver'' has an additional lesser example with the four Team Rocket Executives. On three separate occasions earlier in the game you battle one of them at the end of a location. Then, when they infiltrate the Radio Tower, you have to face all three of them in a row before going straight to facing the fourth head Executive.
*** Another example involves the Kimono Girls of Ecruteak City, who must be fought after the final Gym Leader but before the Elite Four.

Perhaps of more significance, though, is world 6-5 that has you fight every member of the Squeak Squad (Spini, Storo, and Doc) other than the leader (Daroach, but is fought immediately after in world 6-boss).
* In ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'', both main modes end with one:
** In the main game, [[spoiler:Susie sends out an upgraded Mecha Knight at Kirby. After the defeat of Mecha Knight+, Big Bad President Haltmann fights Kirby. When he falls, Kirby pilots the Halberd via a Robobot Armor to take on Haltmann's rogue supercomputer Star Dream, which is a massive four phase fight]].
** In ''Meta Knightmare Returns'', [[spoiler:Meta Knight, upon taking care of a stronger Haltmann, fights clones of Dark Matter from ''Dream Land 2'' and Queen Sectonia from ''Triple Deluxe''. Meta Knight's final boss is the real Galacta Knight from ''Super Star Ultra'']].
