* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': The Bell Gargoyles on the roof of the church in Undead Parish. Once you get the first one down to half its health, [[OhCrap another one]] appears that [[BreathWeapon breathes fire]] along with its halberd and axe-tail attacks, also with half a health bar. It's almost impossible to fight both of them with the area attack fire breath and tremendous physical attacks, so it's pretty much compulsory to summon Knight Solaire to tank their attacks while you hack away at their backs.
** Dragon Slayer Ornstein and Executioner Smough are found together as the first major boss in Anor Londo and are generally considered one of the tougher challenges of the game. Ornstein leaps and lunges with a lightning spear at high speeds. Smough stomps around at a slower pace, but his giant hammer smarts more and throws you around the arena. Any strategy other than continuously backing away to keep them both in sight is almost a [[TheChewToy guaranteed death sentence]][[note]]Unless you go grab yourself a white phantom and take em two on two[[/note]]. Oh, and when you kill one of them, the other absorbs their partner's power and comes back stronger and fully healed: Ornstein becomes a giant with a virtual one-hit-kill move, or, alternatively, Smough gets a big lightning charge for his hammer and a five-mile shockwave attack that you either were out of to begin with, or just got hit by.. [[TheMasochismTango Fun]].

Added DiffLines:

** [[VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII The third game]] didn't want to be left out:
*** Pontiff Sulyvhan can create a magical clone of himself. Kill it and he'll just create another one.
*** Initially, Prince Lorian is fought on his own. After defeating him, though, Prince Lothric will enter the battle, completely healing his brother and adding his magic attacks to their arsenal. And he'll ''keep'' resurrecting Lorian until he's dead himself.
*** The Nameless King is fought while he's riding his dragon, the King of Storms. You'll have to kill the dragon first, but while doing that Nameless with be hurling lightning bolts and smacking you around with his sword-spear from atop his mount.
