* An early SilverAge ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' story had Cap face a whole small army of goons with one big goon in a primitive non-powered ComicBook/IronMan suit. Cap took care of him by taunting to charge at his shield and dodge the goon (complete with an "ˇOlé!"), who rams headfirst into a fireplace and is buried in a pile of rubble, out of action.

* Most enemy types in ''{{Oni}}'' have some sort of charging attack which can be anticipated and dodged, leading to an easy counterattack. For the more powerful enemies, these attacks are unblockable and dodging is the only defense.

* Icehowl the Yeti in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' does this every so often. If he tramples anyone, the victim dies and he goes into a rage, but if he misses, he crashes into the wall and becomes more vulnerable. Especially in the heroic mode, this pretty much decides the battle.

** A miniboss fight against an armored Goron in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', as does the boss fight against Fyrus. ** The best example from Twilight Princess are the two fights on a bridge against the Bulbin King. And there is also [[spoiler:Ganon's monstrous form]]. Somewhat of a variant since rather than dodging you have to meet him head on and wrestle him to the ground before attacking.

* The 11th and 14th Colossus in ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'' can be for a short while, but you can't damage them that way, and it's very risky as they will stun-lock you as soon as they get a single hit in.

* There is a boss, the jailer, in ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'' who looks like one of the "get them to hit the pillars" type bosses. Thankfully this is an inversion. Pillars will crumple, but it's not necessary to beat the boss.

* One of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' games had a boss fight against Lurtz, who was invulnerable until he swung at you and got his sword stuck in a statue, at which point you could attack him. There's also a later fight against orcs on wargs--you can only do a little bit of damage to them until the wargs rear up to attack you, at which point you can run in and slash at their belly. * In ''Orphen: Scion of Sorcery'', one boss literally plays on this trope. It involves a Minotaur-like boss charging at you and knocking you back, eventually knocking you down a hole to your death, which is a Game Over. And unless you have perfect timing to knock him back with a sword, this battle can end very quickly.

* For ''VideoGame/MadWorld'', it's more like a bull fight mini boss and there are three of them. Big Bull Crocker and Big Long Driller whom charge like a bull and elephant respectively. Keep in mind that the fromer fights with two [[ChainsawGood chainsaws]] strapped together and the latter fights with a [[ThisIsADrill huge drill]]. Yee Fung is a fat guy that does a charge, [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog spin dash style]]. He's pretty quick too. * Shin fills this role in FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage and it's sequel. While not necessary to defeat him, tricking him into lodging his fist in one of the pillars will let you get some free hits on him

* In ''VideoGame/AstroBoyOmegaFactor'' for the [[GameBoyAdvance GBA]], Astro Boy had to fight the Blue Knight this way. Every time you crossed you had to [[PressXToNotDie press A in time]] to parry his charge, with the window (and recovery times) shrinking until it devolved into near ButtonMashing. [[OneHitPointWonder Don't miss.]] * In ''StreetFighter'', El Fuerte can be played this way - he's got two versions of a charge that can end in any of four attacks, or be canceled in two ways, he has a separate running chest slam attack, and he's a {{Wall Jump}}er.

** The Phazon Seed boss in Bryyo also does this a little bit in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3''. Ditto for the Elysia Leviathan guardian in one of his forms, and [[spoiler: hunter Ghor]]. Not to mention the final boss... ** You'll be doing a lot of bullfighting in the Torvus Bog section of ''Metroid Prime 2'' and the early parts of Metroid Prime 1's Phendrana Drifts. Both the grenchler and Baby Sheegoth enemies and the Grapple Guardian, keep their vulnerable backs to you unless you goad them into charging (or grabbing electrified pillars, in the Guardian's case). The Alpha Blogg also reveals its weak point while charging, with a twist: it's on the front, and it opens about halfway through the charge (which hurts a lot, so it can be a hard battle before you get the timing right).

* The Were-bulls in ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' charge at you full speed, but take a while to turn, making it possible to sidestep them to avoid getting hit. In fact, one of the best ways to take them out without using a lot of ammo is to use the chainsaw, sidestep out of the way at the last second and slash them as they run past. Rinse and repeat.

* [[spoiler:Viola AI]] from ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders: The 2nd Runner'' is much like this. The first couple of times are just pretty much an all-out brawl, but when fighting when there are barriers that deal collision damage, the general tactic is to lurk next to the wall, and have her smash right into them when she charges. A variant is her other fights, where you have to have her smash into an object you're holding--generally other enemies or an oddly placed steel plate. * ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' has AF Stigro. You have to run him into buildings, slowing him down enough to shoot at and therefore destroy. Unfortunately, he's not invincible against laser blades, [[WeaksauceWeakness meaning you can blade him as he charges you at the start. This often makes the mission loading time longer than the mission itself]]

** You also fight mechanic bulls in at least two missions. You can either make them get tired (yeah, a machine getting tired), then hit them, or outrun them to get their backs and hit them, which ends being faster.

His only attack is to jump several meters towards you and inflict CollisionDamage if he gets you. The first time it's possible to [[DeadlyDodging let him fall off]] into the BottomlessPit, but he has to be shot the second time.

The boss is simple, wait in its sights until it TurnsRed and then it charges. If you're using Stealth Elf or Stink Bomb and have them turn invisible, then the boss won't follow you around - because [[FridgeBrilliance he can't see you]].

If you dodge while near a cliff face, the Seltas will get its horn stuck briefly, allowing you some free hits. * Xain in ''VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia'' is Minotaur who attacks the support pillar holding up the ledge on which an underground town had been built (by charging at it head-first over and over). The party has to stop him before he is successful. During the fight, he employs several standard BullFightBoss attacks and tactics during the fight. * ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' inverts this with Matador. His schtick is to buff his evasion and aim to max, and if you don't debuff him you'll suffer misses, which carry Press Turn penalties. In other words, he turns ''you'' into a Bullfight Boss.
