* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'', ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}3: Jigoku-hen'', and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', the Eight Angel is reduced to a cutscene where the 3 EVA hold it up and kill it by stabbing it in its core.

*** However, this was completely made up for and [[AvertedTrope Averted]] by [[BestBossEver Mr. Freeze,]] who can and has to be taken out by EVERYTHING you have access to in the gameplay proper.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming'' downplays this with [[spoiler:Judge Holloway]]; it's literally two ButtonMashing contests back to back (using this game's version of PressXToNotDie). Succeed in both, and the boss dies. Fail in either, and [[PlayerCharacter Alex]] dies instead (the second time, by the same fate he would inflict on his adversary if he had succeeded).

** The final battle of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', as depicted in ''Another Century's Episode: R'', is just as bad if not worse. The original ''Macross'' finale was depicted in [=ACE2=] as two stages of chaotic battle with the Zentraedi horde before the final stage as described above. ''Frontier'''s final battle is all one stage, consisting of three or four RailShooter sequences sandwiched between several long unskippable {{Cut Scene}}s that show the battle playing out almost exactly as it did in the original anime, complete with Alto finishing BigBad [[spoiler:Grace O'Connor]] himself. Overall, the impact of non-''Frontier'' characters is entirely negligible, which is ComicallyMissingThePoint of ''ACE'' (and its progenitor ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'').

* The 2008 reboot of ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' at least handled this in a semi-original way that actually managed to be reasonably organic. The final fight with the BigBad is a QTE knife-fight (similar to the one from ResidentEvil4 against Krauser), but failing a QTE doesn't kill you instantly, it just changes the fight slightly so that the flow of the fight goes against you instead of for you. The fight lasts several [=QTEs=], and varies quite a bit depending of which [=QTEs=] you win and which ones you lose.

* The Prophet of Truth, the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series' BigBad, is ultimately killed in the final game of the trilogy in a cutscene (he doesn't even put up a fight and is ''already dying'' by the time the main characters reach him). Even the climactic fight leading up to him isn't particularly notable (other than the [[{{BFG}} Fuel Rod Cannon]] spamming Heavy Grunts). Of course, Bungie was never particularly good at handling boss fights (as ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' can attest), so some fans consider this forgivable.

* ''{{Tenchu}}: Fatal Shadows'' had a boss who could either be fought normally if you finished the level through one door, or who you killed in one hit in a cut-scene if you finished the level through a different door. Considering the boss is ThatOneBoss who continually spams attacks which knock off a good portion of your health, being able to kill him in a cut-scene was a relief. (Although it earned you less points.)
