* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' allows you to come face-to-face with [[BigBad Saren]] on Virmire, right after you learn the [[EldritchAbomination true nature]] of Sovereign, the [[SentientStarship starship]] he's been using to wreak havoc around the galaxy and brainwash people to his will, along with [[AbusivePrecursors its goals]]. He possesses powers from all three of the [[ClassAndLevelSystem skill trees]] available in the game and is an example of HeadsIWinTailsYouLose, considering that no matter how much damage you do him he gets away scot-free, leaving you to make a SadisticChoice on whether to save [[spoiler:Kaidan or Ashley]] when you destroy his base.

Boss fight usually occurring after a major revelation in the plot (e.g., about 2/3 into the game). Usually notable for being a long and difficult battle... that is, if it isn't a HopelessBossFight.

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' has 'three'' of these. Vexen serves as the first one in Sora's story, in which he is the first Organization member to be rematched, and right in the middle of a WhamEpisode; he is also the first [[spoiler:[[CharacterDeath to be killed off]]]]. The rematch with Larxene is the second one, as it occurs right after the biggest revelations in the plot. In Reverse/Rebirth, this role is given to Zexion, despite being TheUnfought in the GameBoyAdvance version: he attempts to trap Riku in an illusion, only for this to [[NiceJobFixingItVillain backfire]] when Riku stops fighting with his inner darkness and [[IAmWhatIAm finally embraces it]]; he is also the ''last'' Organization member in the game (but not the series) [[spoiler:[[CharacterDeath to be killed off]]]].

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' doesn't have a traditional Climax Boss, but instead a BossRush through Xigbar, Luxord, Saix and Xemnas in his regular form prior to the FinalBoss.
** [[spoiler: Data-Sora's Heartless]] in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded'', who seems to be the last boss in the last chapter, but there is in fact another chapter and another boss waiting after him.
** Saix in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'', who had served as the closest thing to a BigBad the story had, and is finally fought when Roxas makes his pivotal decision to leave the Organization.
** Master Eraqus in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''. Also, the final bosses of all three story modes might qualify since there is a FinalBoss for the game in the Final Episode unlocked after completing the three story modes.

* Alltynex from Siter Skain {{Kamui}} is probably the games most important bossfight.
** Raiwat Virgo from the sequal RefleX might count aswell.

* Alltynex ALLTYNEX OS from Siter Skain {{Kamui}} ''VideoGame/{{Kamui}}'' is probably the games most important bossfight.
** Raiwat ZODIAC Virgo from the sequal RefleX might count aswell.prequel ''VideoGame/RefleX'' count. Ever since this mechanical terror destroyed the Human-Type Cancer, it's inevitable that the player has to fight it later on, resulting in one of the [[SequentialBoss longest boss fights in the game]] besides [[FinalBoss ZODIAC Libra]].
