* The flash game ''EpicBattleFantasy 2'' has the Zombie Hydra, whose two heads count as separate bosses with individual health bars. They can also revive each other, so you better make sure you kill both of them in the same turn.
** ''Epic Battle Fantasy 3'' has the three-headed Pyrohydra, whose heads once again act as separate bosses with different stats and health bars. When you kill one head, stats are doubled for the two remaining heads, and when you kill one more, the last head has tripled stats.
** [[spoiler:Godcat]] from Epic Battle Fantasy 4 has you fight each form separately, then face both at the same time.

* The Dragon Angels in ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' are the last obstacle you have to reach before getting Althena's Sword, the last piece needed to complete the Dragon Armor ensemble and tackle the Magic Emperor.

* The Dragon Angels in ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' are the last obstacle you have to reach before getting Althena's Sword, the last piece needed to complete the Dragon Armor ensemble and tackle the Magic Emperor. It's also a DuelBoss, since Alex must face them on his own.

* In ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', Knuckles fights two sub bosses in Launch Base Zone Act 1 instead of Sonic and Tails just having one. If you play as Sonic and Tails together, technically it's Knuckles fighting you as a dual boss. Also Whisker and Johnny in ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}} Adventure''. [[note]] However, there is a mission that played said DualBoss, but although it played like normal, you must only defeat Johnny, because if you defeat Captain Whisker, you will fail the mission.[[/note]]

* VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}} ends with a fight against two Combine Gunships. While they are the most powerful enemies in the game, they make it even more obvious that the game doesn't have any kind of actual ending and you fight them only because the designers had no idea what else you could be doing once you reached the main villain who does not have any combat abilities at all.

*** Pontiff Sulyvhan can create a magical clone of himself. Kill it and he'll just create another one.

*** Pontiff Sulyvhan can create a magical clone of himself. Kill it and he'll just create another one. Made a bit easier in that the clone and Sulyvhan move and attack in tandem, making them much easier to predict than the usual DualBoss.


Added DiffLines:

*** Also from the Ringed City: the Spear of the Church boss fight has a stronger-than-normal Painting Guardian accompany the player summoned to serve as the boss (or the generic Halflight character who spawns if playing offline). Another Guardian spawns in when the Spear of the Church is reduced to half health.

* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' had a battle with twin tanks Shoe and Karn.



** There are quests where you must hunt at least two large monsters, although [[ArbitraryHeadcountLimit only up to two large monsters can be present on the map at once]]. Basic strategy involves using [[DungFu Dung Bombs]] to keep the two present bosses separated so you don't have to fight both of them at once, but some quests are set in "arena" maps where both monsters will be in the same single area at all times. Also, the more monsters there are to hunt, the less health each individual one will have, in order to keep the quest reasonable.

** ''4'' also introduced the first proper case of this trope with the Seltas Queen, who always has a Seltas by her side. The Seltas on its own is unlikely to be a threat, being a WarmUpBoss at best, but it complements the [[MightyGlacier Seltas Queen]] by sitting on top of her, firing projectiles at distant foes and swiping at those who get close. It's also a case of WeHaveReserves as the Seltas Queen is completely uncaring for the wellbeing of the Seltas, hitting it if it gets in the way of attacks and outright eating it if she is hungry.

The Seltas on its own is unlikely to be a threat, being a WarmUpBoss at best, best(and if you kill it, she'll eventually summon another one), but it complements the [[MightyGlacier Seltas Queen]] by sitting on top of her, her and flying her around(despite the Queen being a good six times his mass), firing projectiles at distant foes and swiping at those who get close. It's also a case of WeHaveReserves as the Seltas Queen is completely uncaring for the wellbeing of the Seltas, hitting it if it gets in the way of attacks and outright eating it if she is hungry. ''4 Ultimate'' adds the Desert Stetas Queen, who is even more callous with her partner, [[FastballSpecial firing the Desert Steltas at the Hunter(s)]] with enough force to ''shatter'' the poor bug on impact, then promptly reaching into the ground to pull out another one.

** The first Alpha game also featured an inversion: a "Dramatic Battle" mode based off ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' where two players could take on M. Bison together as Ryu and Ken.
