* A miniboss corridor appears in ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}'' for the only MiniBoss in the game. Funnily, at the start of the corridor, you see a sign stating "Beware! [[GiantMook Giant Ants]]!", and then you face off against three ''tiny'' ants that run away from you. Until you reach the end, [[OhCrap confirming the sign's statement]].

* A miniboss corridor appears in ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}'' for the only MiniBoss in the game. It's actually a dangerous area since there's rolling and bouncing tumbleweed hazards that fly out from behind ObstructiveForeground. Funnily, at the start of the corridor, you see a sign stating "Beware! [[GiantMook Giant Big Ants]]!", and then you face off against three ''tiny'' ants that run away from you. Until you reach the end, [[OhCrap confirming the sign's statement]].

* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' has this before the battle with [[spoiler:the fake]] Andross on Venom if you came from Bolse (the penultimate boss, Golemech, is also fought in a corridor, but since it's running away and its "attacks" involve causing the corridor to become more crowded so that you [[CollisionDamage crash into stuff]], it doesn't count as this trope). If you come from Area 6, the single straight corridor is replaced by a branching group of corridors where you get different power-ups depending on which direction you choose to go at each branch. The optimal route will get you the exact same group of power-ups that would be found in the straight corridor in the from Bolse version--two laser upgrades, three shield rings, and a bomb.[[note]]It's left, right, left, left, right, right.[[/note]]

On a more technical note, DynamicLoading of the actual boss usually starts here.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' does this not for the FinalBoss, but for the fourth Fiend, Tiamat. The floor she is on consists of a long corridor leading up to her lair, and ''mostly'' contains the standard enemy encounters, with a 1/64 chance to encounter ([[BossInMookClothing and likely get savaged by]]) the super-powerful [=WarMECH=].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', the Last Corridor (so named by the SavePoint there) is a stately hallway bathed in gorgeous yellow light which obviously leads the player straight to the final encounter with the King. However, one dialogue occurs in the middle of this corridor, and it includes a major {{Reveal}}.

* The path leading to Psycho Mantis in ''MetalGearSolid'' is a good example. When you got the key to open the door, even the rest of the building seems entirely deserted, warning you that something is about to happen.
* At the endgame of ''MetalGearSolid4'', you have to cross a long corridor to the control room where the [[spoiler:[[AIIsACrapshoot world controlling supercomputer]]]] is located. While the corridor is technically empty, the walls are covered in microwave radiation generators that almost bake Snake alive as he struggles to reach the other end.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has a long path trough multiple rooms where you'll get told the backstory of the game and [[spoiler: one corridor where Sans will be judging you before the {{final battle}}.]]

** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', right before the boss battle with the [[Film/{{Tron}} Master Control Program and Sark]], the entrance to the former's lair is a long bridge from the last save point in Space Paranoids. And at the end of the game in The World That Never Was, you have to climb a staircase before the first boss with Xemnas.
