* ''{{Vindictus}}'' also has several bosses that must be fought solo. Episode 8's Succubus is a good example, as well as [[spoiler:Episode 9's Shakarr, who you fight in full Level 2 Dark Knight or Paladin mode for the entire battle]].

* ''VideoGame/FarawayStory'' allows Pia to duel her friends (with the exception of Mimi) in order to officially recruit them as party members. [[spoiler:However, defeating Ellevark results in a non-canon ending rather than immediate recruitment. In Chapter 11, Ellevark is the only playable character, which means he has to defeat the chapter boss by himself.]]

* Defeating [[CanisMajor Garurumon]] in ''DigimonWorld'' prompts him to [[SoreLoser accuse you of cheating]], as he thinks that having to fight a Digimon backed up by a human is not fair. He asks you to come back the next day to fight him again, but this time, you aren't allowed to use items on your Digimon or even give him commands.
* It's traditional for each game in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' to have at least one DuelBoss. What's notable is that almost every duel is fought between friendly characters who are not fighting out of malice, but rather as a means to resolve some outstanding issue or difference of opinion. There's often the added subtext of the less experienced fighter trying to surpass the more experienced one. They also tend to range from difficult to nearly impossible, but failure usually only results in missed gear and bruised egos rather than a game over.

* [[PickACard Pick a]] ''{{Suikoden}}'' [[PickACard game. Any]] ''{{Suikoden}}'' [[PickACard game.]] (See also TacticalRockPaperScissors.)
** While these fights are almost always done in the special Duel battle system, Suikoden 2 bizarrely has one such fight that uses the regular battle system. Which is designed more for 6-on-6 battles.

** Two main paths in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' also feature a boss like this - in ''Birthright'' Chapter 26, Avatar needs to defeat [[spoiler:Xander]], and in ''Conquest'' Chapter 25, they must fight [[spoiler:Ryoma]]. In both cases, Avatar and the boss start in an isolated chamber in the middle of the map, while other units start outside and need to fight regular enemies. However, you can interrupt the duel in ''Conquest'' version, where after defeating one(on Normal difficulty) or both(on Hard or Lunatic) minibosses, the chamber will open and your units will be able to swarm the boss.

* In ''PennyArcadeAdventures: Episode 2'', the player character must fight Charles, a wealthy rival of Tycho's, to the death for an apartment. It's a purposely AnticlimaxBoss, as you're much more powerful than he is.
