** ''Rebirth'' introduces an optional challenge room that can be accessed if you defeat Mom in under 20 minutes. What lies inside this room is a massive gauntlet against ''thirty'' bosses, two at a time. Fortunately, hearts always drop for every two bosses that go down, and the arena itself is about four times the usual size of a boss fight area, giving the player a lot of room to maneuver.

Fortunately, hearts always drop for every two bosses that go down, and the arena itself is about four times the usual size of a boss fight area, giving the player a lot of room to maneuver. This is an example of a boss rush encountered relatively early in its game: Mom is the DiscOneFinalBoss, and with all chapters unlocked, there is a total of [[spoiler:at least four additional floors to get through]] after the rush opens.



** ''Afterbirth+'' drops all pretenses and introduces [[spoiler:The Void, which contains ''multiple'' Boss Rooms, only one of which contains the TrueFinalBoss Delirium. Said boss itself qualifies for this trope, as its main attack method is to simply transform into nearly any other boss encountered (yes, this includes the {{Disk One Final Boss}}es), shifting between bosses faster and faster as it gets lower on health.]]

The other boss doors can also contain other "final"/major bosses, with the exceptions of Mom, Mega Satan, Hush, and Ultra Greed, likely due to their room conditions, the length of fighting the latter three, and Ultra Greed being exclusive to Greed Mode.]]

* The final battle of [[BigBad Nowel's]] route in ''VideoGame/MagicalBattleArena'' has you fighting everyone you've fought along the way, except the [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Gadget Drones]] and [[MirrorMatch your clones]]. The bad: Since this is a FightingGame, Nowel is still as strong as she was then as she is now. The worse: You have to fight all of them at the same time with no allies. The worst: They're not handicapped in any way. [[ThatOneBoss Have fun]]!

* In ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'', when you complete the Ascent stage of the Tower of Fate, you literally drop in on the bosses' dinner party, and they each attack you one by one. The order is different each time you face them.

The order is different each time you face them. In the case ''Plague Of Shadows'', you literally drop in on the bosses' dinner party, but then [[spoiler: Shovel Knight]] drops in on you, and he ends up in the chair where Plague Knight would normally sit. The bosses attack you one by one, again with the order being different, but then you fight [[spoiler: Shovel Knight]] as the final opponent in the Boss Rush. The Boss Rush is removed from ''Specter of Torment''

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': After [[spoiler:siding with Othinus and making an enemy of the world]], Touma has to fight through a series of powerful opponents, most of whom he's already fought before. Notable in that [[spoiler:most of them actually let him win, or allow him to pass after he explains himself]].

** While ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is very open-ended, if you [[spoiler:decide to skip all the normal story progression and skip straight to [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Hyrule Castle]] and confront Ganon, you'll have to fight through all four of the main dungeon bosses, the Blight Ganons, before you can even face Calamity Ganon]].

** ''VideoGame/MegaManUnlimited'', true to Mega Man tradition, has one of these in the fourth endgame stage. However, there is an added twist: [[spoiler: Before you fight each boss again, [[AllTheWOrldsAreAStage you have to traverse a mini-stage based on the obstacles and enemies in that boss's original stage]].]]

* The Tower of Dread in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' has the Miis fight [[spoiler:the powerful bosses of each of the eight New Lumos districts in a row]]. There are no breaks between the battles, and therefore the Sprinkles do CANNOT be refilled.

''VideoGame/PiratesOfTheCarribeanTheLegendOfJackSparrow'' Features one of these at the end. Upon completion of the tale, Jack and will escape from the scaffolding just before they are hanged. The player regains control of them and they must fight their way to the docks through a ton of {{Mooks}} and expys of the games hardest bosses. You have three lives between the two of you and there are no rest stops, save points or healing items so good luck with that.
