* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' is usually pretty straightforward with their boss creatures, being the specific target of an expedition. There are, however, a few... "uninvited guests" that can pop up randomly that only look slightly more lethal than normal EliteMook opponents.
** Most infamously, the Collector. Can show up in ANY expedition as a random fight in a hallway, and on top of having the durability of a fallout shelter, can summon and resummon a whole host of minions that all do their jobs very well.
** The Shambler, who appears anywhere that there is zero torchlight randomly (or can be summoned at one of its randomly spawning altars), will always surprise your party and reshuffle your positions. It basically is a pile of horror, stress, and death fueled by a perpetual desire to see you dead; once you encounter it, it will replace all encounters until it dies, or you die (or abandon the mission).
** The Crocodilian is encountered in the marshy, swampy Court, introduced in the aptly named Crimson Court DLC. This lump of pure Hit Points and killing intent will abuse position swapping to duck in and out of attack ranges, and has an attack with almost guaranteed critical hits. And it can be encountered as early as your fourth expedition in a new game - expect no survivors if that's the case.

** Lynels return in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', making their first appearance in a 3D ''Zelda'' game, and take several more levels in badass. They are extremely fast, powerful, and durable. Attack them blindly, and they'll parry your attacks with their shields. Distance yourself from them, and watch them whip out their bows to snipe at you with frightening accuracy. Try to get cover somewhere, and they'll shoot their arrows ''up'' and rain them on you. Try to run away from them on horseback, and ''they keep up with you''. [[TurnsRed They get even more dangerous when they start losing health, gaining more powerful attacks.]] Unless you're well-prepared, seeing one of them is your cue to either [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere get the hell away]] or brace yourself for one epic battle. The first time you'll likely encounter one is at Zora's Domain, where you're tasked with collecting some Shock Arrows that it left lying around in order to take down Vah Ruta. The Zoras themselves [[TheDreaded are afraid of it]] and advise you to [[StealthBasedMission to stay out of its sight while you steal its arrows]] rather than fight it head-on. [[spoiler:The Silver Lynels in particular - which start replacing most of the other Lynels after a certain point in the game - have more health than ''Ganon''!]]

* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' has Nightmares, ancient Ryuvian [[AMechByAnyOtherName Ryders]] that are the toughest non-boss enemies in the series. Each Nightmare has more hit points than a PACT assault carrier, maxed-out armour, maxed-out shields and very high evasion, so not only are they tough as nails but they’re also hard to hit. All of their attacks are highly accurate and highly damaging as well. And they usually come in groups of at least three, with several Ryuvian cruisers to back them up. Fortunately, they can only be encountered in optional side missions.

* The Garguantuar is easily the most powerful mook zombie in ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies''. It's [[MightyGlacier slow]], but can crush most plants (including defensive plants), takes a shitload of damage, and can even take 2 OneHitKill attacks. Finally, it can throw an imp in the defenses after losing enough health.

FakeUltimateMook is the inverse, with a "boss-looking" enemy being actually quite simple to beat down.

* [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon]] typically wore the uniform of a colonel of his Imperial Guard ''Chasseurs a Cheval'' or his Old Guard Grenadiers while on campaign, plus his legendary bicorne hat and grey overcoat. ([[EliteMook It's also worth noting that the Chasseurs and the Grenadiers were the oldest, most revered, and some of the best units in his army]], so this could be a case of Boss In ''Elite Mook'' Clothing instead.)

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' has the Gas Town polecat known as "Black Mask". Despite appearing a normal mook, he crossbows Max in the head, which only fails to kill him because a HelpfulHallucination caused him to instinctively raise his hand. He is then stabbed by Furiosa and thrown out of the rig but clings onto the sides and pulls himself in to give Furiosa a nearly fatal stab wound before he finally bites the dust. Almost single-handedly, [[NearVillainVictory he nearly causes the defeat of the heroes]].
