* In ''SuperSmashBros. Brawl'', at the end of "The Glacial Peak" stage, [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Lucario]] challenges [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Meta Knight]] to a fight, reducing the Ice Climbers into mere bystanders. A unique thing about this particular Duel Boss is that you can choose to play as either Meta Knight or Lucario.

* On the landmass of Lowee, Neptune and Arfoire square off in ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'' in the event "The Last Battle?!" [[HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 The next game]] has a [[ScriptedBattle scripted]] Duel Boss battle in the beginning where Nepgear unleashes the power of the Sharicite on CFW Judge, though it has next to no effect. Later on, Uni insists that she and Nepgear have a one-on-one battle after defeating Linda/Underling at Rebeat Resort.

A subversion existed in Chalice Dungeon, [[MirrorBoss Forgotten Madman]] appeared to be this trope at first, but it turns into DualBoss when he reached half health.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has Ludger against his half brother Julius, [[spoiler: both as a test of the former's skills and because the latter knows his death is necessary for the world's survival.]]

The game also starts with a battle between Ludger and Julius before the player can do anything else, but it's AllJustADream, and [[HopelessBossFight you can't win, no matter what]].

Evidenced by footage of this hack of the game.
** ''VideoGame/EarthBound'': Ness must face an entire world in his own mind (and thus by himself), including the requisite DuelBoss, before the shift to the endgame; said DuelBoss is [[BattleInTheCentreOfTheMind the embodiment of the dark side of his mind]]. *** You do get help from the Flying Men (though it's impressive if you get any of them to survive long enough to accompany you to the boss point). Of course, these are also part of you, so it's still a duel. Of course, the boss is ALSO a part of your own mind. So technically, while up to three fighters can be involved, only one person is actually doing any fighting.

Do not confuse with the (deliberately) similar-sounding DualBoss, where you fight two bosses at the same time, and their stats are likely ''not'' lowered. If the DuelBoss is also the FinalBoss, this trope overlaps with InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn.
