** 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.]]

ZERO takes place after Beta and Gamma free their bird counterparts. Beta Mk 2 can't occur straight before the Final Boss.
** E-101 Mark II qualifies as well, and possibly Alpha/ZERO. They each get their own unique themes and act as the final bosses to their side-stories. Additionally, if you play all the stories in the intended order, E-101 comes right before the FinalBoss.

[[folder:Web Video]] * This was one of Game Dude's many [[AccentuateTheNegative gripes]] about ''VideoGame/MickeyMousecapade'': he gasped in astonishment at how short Pete's level was, and complained that, despite being on the cover art, he isn't actually the FinalBoss. [[/folder]]

* Ugh Zan III in ''SeriousSam - The First Encounter''. Probably the tallest boss at its time in first-person shooters.

[[folder:Western Animtion]] * In ''Main/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' the Tantabus can be considered this for [[spoiler: Luna's Redemption Quest]] that began in the [[spoiler: second episode because she]] only defeats it by finally forgiving herself for that event and being willing to move on.

* ''NinjaGaiden II'' (the original NES version) has a climax boss in Ashtar, who we initially believe is the BigBad behind the game. Ryu defeats him about halfway through the game, but the threat posed by the Dark Sword of Chaos isn't over yet, and the true BigBad turns out to be Jacquio, who you defeated in the very first game, and who has revived himself using the Power of Evil. The same FinalBoss music is used for both major battles.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': Darth Malak, who's also the final boss, is first fought inconclusively right after the huge revelation about what his interest in the PlayerCharacter is.

* ''BatmanArkhamKnight'' has the Arkham Knight fighting you in an [[ThisIsADrill excavator]] and then the stealth duel with him immediately after. It's also the only classic "hit their weakpoint three times" boss in the game.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' ''really'' liked this trope, having not one but ''four'' of these, due to multiple characters competing for the role of the main villain. First is [[spoiler:King Nachtigal]], who turns out to just be the DiscOneFinalBoss. Then comes [[spoiler:Gaius]], who also doubles as an open-ended boss (you can either win or lose). Then comes the battle against [[spoiler:Gilland and Celsius]], which wraps up of the main conflict of the game up to that point. And finally, the battle with [[spoiler:the real Maxwell]], which starts off as a Hopeless Boss Fight but then becomes winnable.
