** Lynels from ''A Link Between Worlds''. These lion-centaurs roam eastern Death Mountain, and it's a far better idea to run away from them than to try and fight them. They have an absurd amount of HP, taking ''eight'' hits from the ''[[InfinityPlusOneSword golden Master Sword]]'' to kill. They're practically immune to being stunned and aren't stunned on hit. They also deal immense damage with their flame breath that has a very far reach, and they'll continue using the fire breath even when you're out of reach so you can't immediately run back in. Stay away. ''Far away.''

** Lynels from are recurring enemies harkening back to the first game, but ''A Link Between Worlds''.Worlds'' is where they start earning this status. These lion-centaurs roam eastern Death Mountain, and it's a far better idea to run away from them than to try and fight them. They have an absurd amount of HP, taking ''eight'' hits from the ''[[InfinityPlusOneSword golden Master Sword]]'' to kill. They're practically immune to being stunned and aren't stunned on hit.

** Lynels return in ''Breath of the Wild'', 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, nd 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''. They get even more dangerous when they start losing health, gaining more powerful attacks. Unless you're well-prepared, seeing one of them is you cue to either get the hell away or prepare for one epic battle.

* ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' had Solan, an unassuming old Yellow Martian soldier that the main hero runs into and discovers to be a formidable swordsman. He gives John (who is a [[InvincibleHero super-strong, nearly unkillable badass]]) such fight that he has to use his wits instead of his superhuman strength to win. No other enemy fought by him up to this point was really ''that good''.

* Tyrian does this often, with several levels having you take on wave after wave of boss-caliber enemies (although fortunately in most cases you don't actually have to destroy them and can just stay out of their way until they leave the screen)

* While [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile crocodiles]] are one of the most dangerous animals to humans, Gustave, the largest of his kind ever seen in Africa, is in a class of his own: he's killed more than 300 people over the course of his life, and regularly hunts larger prey such as [[TheWorfEffect hippopotamus]].[[note]]This is because [[MightyGlacier his large size]] actually hinders his mobility when hunting the usual prey of crocodiles, meaning he's forced to hunt large prey. To the uninitiated, most crocodiles are little more than minor threats to most hippos since the hippos' jaws can snap a ten-foot crocidile in half, causing them to prey only upon the sick or young.[[/note]] His frightening success has gained him infamy among the people of Lake Tanganyika, and he's even been listed as the #1 [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18483_the-5-creepiest-serial-killers-who-were-animals_p2.html animal serial killer]] by Website/{{Cracked}}.

Compare and contrast DemonicSpiders, which tends to be a common enemy, whereas a Boss in Mook Clothing tends to be fairly uncommon. Compare SmashMook, ThatOneBoss, KungFuProofMook, MiniBoss. Contrast GoddamnedBats, KingMook, MookPromotion, AnticlimaxBoss, DegradedBoss, LevelInBossClothing. FakeUltimateMook is the inverse, with an "boss-looking" enemy being actually quite simple to beat down.
