* The "White Assassin" in ''[[VideoGame/MirrorsEdge Mirror's Edge]]'' is actually the only actual boss fight in the game. The after-fight cutscene also makes it the [[WhamEpisode Wham Level]].
* ''{{Okami}}'' has two Climax Bosses: {{Orochi}} and [[EvilCounterpart Ninetails]]. Both brings a new revelation: [[spoiler:Orochi's death causes all the other bosses to be let loose upon the world, and Ninetails reveals the existence of [[UltimateEvil Yami.]]]]

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' has Krishna, leader of the Divine Powers, serving this role, as the threat that the Divine Powers pose is [[TheDreaded enough]] to make humans, angels, and demons [[EnemyMine cease their three-way war]] [[TeethClenchedTeamwork as much as they need to]] in order to stop them. He is fought in Tsukiji Konganji, which he's set up as HQ for himself and his fellow polytheistic gods, and once he's downed, the first three factions go back to being at each other's throats. [[spoiler:Then it turns out the Powers all faked their defeats and they proceed with the next step of their plan for humanity's [[DeadlyEuphemism "salvation"]].]]

* The first ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' has Varin Omega and his demon form, Ravana...[[AnticlimaxBoss story-wise, anyway]]. In the second game, it's [[spoiler:Heat's new demon form]] Vritra, the last real boss fight before [[spoiler:Gale and Cielo's sacrifices and Serph and Sera's fusion]] leading up to the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.

* ''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.

** 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.

** ''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.
