* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'': The Prophet of Regret.
** Unless you just jump on his chair and punch him in the face, then he's a textbook Anti-Climax Boss.
** The Heretic Leader is another example, although he's only the first boss, he's the hardest of the three, at least on Legendary.
** Legendary co-op turns all the boss fights into {{That One Boss}} instead. The Heretic leader becomes the easiest because if you get lucky, you can assassinate him in one hit. The Prophet of Regret is a absolute nightmare (you have to watch out for his teleporting chair. If his giant laser (one shot kill) doesn't get you, the grenade spamming grunts will. If they don't, then the elites (both dual wielding plasma pistols AND using swords) sure will. On top of that, if you are skilled/fast/lucky enough to survive all three, your partner had better damn well be too. The final boss almost seems EASY after that.
* In ''VideoGame/Halo3'', the DualBoss against two Scarabs and the assault on the Citadel can count. On the other hand, Truth is hyped up to be this [[spoiler:[[TheUnfought but he just gets killed by the Arbiter in a cutscene.]]]]

* The battle against Luca Blight in ''SuikodenII'' embodies this trope, especially since you have to beat him ''[[SequentialBoss three times in succession]]''.
** Duel him with the Hero afterwards.

* ''VideoGame/UncommonTime'' has three, one for each chapter.
** Though it's a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, the Winterspirit, fought at the end of Movement 1 immediately after [[spoiler:the World Tuning fails]], definitely fulfills the role.
** [[spoiler:Teagan]], fought at the end of Movement 2.
** The Herald of Winter, fought at the end of Alto's VisionQuest. It represents [[spoiler:Alto's subconscious hatred and desire to destroy the world]]. If you lose, you're treated to a NonstandardGameOver where [[spoiler:the Herald dominates Alto's personality and ushers in an ice age that will destroy civilization]].

* Shane is the main antagonist of the second season of ''Series/TheWalkingDead'', as he tries to usurp Rick after losing leadership of the group as well as Lori and Carl's affections to him. The penultimate episode of the season features their [[spoiler: final]] confrontation that resolves their story arc and proves Shane wrong in that Rick ''is'' a man who can do what needs to be done to protect his family and friends.

** To a degree, the Sonic and Tails vs Gamma character battle. While it's a pathetically easy boss on any side, it occurs just after [[spoiler: Gamma's PetTheDog moment rescuing Amy, leading her to stand up for him and break the fight up, finalising his HeelFaceTurn.]]
