** The first game had the Wheel Beast. To wit, the boss battles in the first game follows a patter where you use the animal transformation you gained in the dungeon in some way to beat the boss. In the case of the Wheel Beast, the wall-crawling ability of the Spider transformation not only allows you to hit the switches that damage the boss a lot, but it also lets you completely avoid all of his attacks with impunity.

** ''Shantae and the Pirate's Curse'' has the Steel Maggot. It has two easily avoided attacks: One where it slowly crawls back and forth across the screen, and another where it fires a fan of widely-spaced projectiles if you hit the wrong buttons on its back. You do have to guess what sequence of buttons to hit on its back to damage it, but this is easier than it sounds since there are only three buttons you need to hit. There's a reason why it's one of the easier bosses to defeat without taking damage[[note]]according to the Steam Global Achievement Stats[[/note]] despite it's placement in the penultimate dungeon.

** Pinwheel also qualifies as this. His fight takes place inbetween The Catacombs (which is filled with resurrecting skeletons and [[DemonicSpiders skeleton wheels]]), and [[ThatOneLevel The Tomb of the Giants]], and the fight itself is a complete joke. He has only a handful of highly choreographed attacks, his health is just barely higher than the ''second boss in the game'', and he's cripplingly weak to melee characters.

His magic attacks actually do a fairly high amount of damage if they connect, but most players end up killing him before he can even fire one.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' had a few, depending on team choices.



** Misty will definitely come under this if you raised both Pikachu and Bulbasaur. One resists water and both have super-effective moves against Misty's Pokemon. Misty on the other hand has only Water/Normal type movepools. So you probably can get through even if Pikachu/Bulbasaur is 1-3 levels under.

*** Not so much in Emerald, as they have added a Xatu and Claydol to their team and become significantly more challenging. Claydol is still weak to Surf as well, but has very high Special Defense ''and'' knows Light Screen to offset this.



*** Less so in Platinum, as she has added a Froslass to her team that can cause some serious problems with its high Speed and Snow Cloak ability.

* Salazar was this in the original [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] release of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''. In that version, Salazar "head" would never attack the corners of the platform where the tentacles came out, so if you got a tentacle to retreat (easily done by simply shooting it a couple times from a distance) you could go into that corner and wail on him unperturbed (until the tentacle came back out, but then you just had to shoot it again). This was fixed in the PS2 and Wii versions.

** Two more Gigapedes are encountered inside the Leviathan who give more challenge but still pretty easy compared to other bosses

* Devil May Cry 3 has Gigapede. While he can hit hard, he doesn't hit hard as other bosses, limited area of attack, predictable pattern and a large target. Be quick enough you can avoid all of his attacks and with enough skill [[AttackReflector deflect some of his attacks back on him]] and have a FlawlessVictory. That is, if you are someone who can pull through [[NintendoHard the extremely difficult game]]

** Lady. While she provides more challenge than Gigapede, be careful and you can waltz through her as well
