* Not a video-game example: monsters and large enemies in ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy''. They've no defensive abilities except their armor and/or damage reduction, relying instead on an (often insanely) vast pool of HP and the quite often nasty bites they can give back.

*** The worst part about Merasmus isn't just his overly-large health pool, but also his [[TimedMission 90-second time limit]] and constant {{teleport|spam}}ation and [[GetBackHereBoss hiding]] on top of it all.

* The Tyrannosaurus Rex from ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAnniversary'' takes a metric ''ton'' of shots to take down. Fully justified as it's a flipping '''T-REX''' and all you have to take it down are a pair of pistols and, if you're lucky, a [[GuideDangIt well-hidden shotgun]].

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has the level 71 tyrant Gradivus, the Headless Emperor. While not particularly impressive on the offensive front, he has ''100 million'' HP, ten times that of the level 99 superboss Telethia, and high resistance to most damage types.

** The Ancient Dragon has the highest possible health bar in a ''Souls'' game, topping at a basic 19,840 HP. It's slow and really doesn't care about your attacks, and it will unleash OneHitKill after another.

** The Mother Demon in Doom 64. If you thought the Cyberdemon's 4000 HP was huge, this one has 5000! If you did not collect the keys, [[OhCrap enjoy wasting a lot of ammo against a plethora of enemies before facing the Mother Demon.]] Fortunately, the spot where the Mother Demon is located respawns supercharge soul spheres. Unlike the Cyberdemon and Spider Mastermind, the Mother Demon is not immune to splash damage.

Named after an industry term for this type of boss, whose main attribute is that they can soak up damage like a sponge absorbs water.

water. Their primary way of defeating the player is holding out until they make enough mistakes before their LifeMeter runs out.

* Take to the extreme by ''VideoGame/TrillionGodOfDestruction''. That's an AntagonistTitle, by the way. The entire game is built around getting strong enough to whittle down his HP before all your Overlords fall in battle or the neatherworld is destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

* BorderlandsThePreSequel has EOS as the final boss of the claptrap DLC, a boss that is almost guaranteed to empty out at least one-two weapons from your inventory before death. It doesn't help that it regens its powerful shields during the battle three times, has 8 turrets attached to its body that have their own health, and has a first form that must be defeated first. It still takes an absolutely ludicrous amount of shots even when you're seriously over its level.
