So, you're walking around on the world map, and there comes [[FightWoosh that flash that signifies that you're under attack]]. Get ready for another [[RandomEncounters random encounter]]! Except, what's this? Seems you're not in any danger after all. Congratulations, you've just run into a Fairy Battle.

Occasionally showing up in [[RolePlayingGame role playing games]], the fairy battle is something that makes itself look like a battle, but turns out to be, well, something else.

* The boss fight with Mysterio in ''SpiderMan 2''. After the appearance of his abnormally large health bar filling up three times, he can do nothing but throw increasingly desperate threats until being one-hit KO'd.

* If you are wandering out in the grasslands in ''QuestForGloryIII'' and are [[WizardNeedsFoodBadly hungry enough]], you will encounter the Awful Waffle Walker, which is basically a giant [[AnachronismStew waffle]] covered in butter and syrup. It has its own theme music, and will follow you relentlessly until you eat it.

* ''KingdomHearts'' has [[FriendlyEnemy White Mushrooms]], which reward you for hitting them with whatever spell corresponds to their miming act; and blue mushrooms called Rare Truffles that reward you for juggling them in mid-air, without them touching the ground. Subverted with Black Fungi, which ''do'' attack you and behave more like [[MetalSlime Metal Slimes]].
** There's also the Bulky Vendor in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII the sequel]], whose HP goes down ''all by itself'' after it appears. By using a [[ActionCommand Reaction Command]] on it, depending on how low its HP is (the lower the better), it'll drop an assortment of munny, health/magic/drive replenishing items, and an item or two that can be used for synthesis.

* ''KingdomHearts'' ''VideoGame/TheHauntedRuins'': There's a few.
** There's the mice, which, when encountered, are just spoken to.
** The wizards give a spell when encountered, then disappear. Once you get all the spells, they're encountered in a floor filled with them, where they're used to give backstory.

** The rare battles in the ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' subseries involve the battles against Omoikame in the first game and JAck Frost's quiz questions in the second.
* The battles of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' are so unorthodox as is that an encounter where your regular interface is useless or inaccessible to progress is not a wildly unusual situation at all, and the battle start animation is used more than once before entering a mock DatingSim interface with a friendly character instead. The game does plays the trope completely straight as [[spoiler:you are traveling through New Home to meet with Asgore]] and various monsters along the way take it in turns to reveal the backstory of [[spoiler:Asgore's son Asriel]] to you, with each chunk of the story being presented in the format of a random encounter fight screen. The entire sequence is startingly emotional considering the unorthodox presentation. In a [[KillEmAll Genocide Run]], this sequence of quasi-encounters is replaced with [[spoiler:a cynical rant from Flowey]].

* In many early ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games, your first encounter with demons will just be a tutorial for how to talk to them.

** A more sinister version is found in a Genocide Run (or, potentially, a very dusty Neutral run). If you kill enough enemies in a particular zone, all random encounters in that zone will be replaced with the ominous message, "But nobody came." With fittingly ominous music to boot.

* The Pig Noise in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' have distinctive green scan symbols and don't attack, instead trying to simply escape by running offscreen. You are guaranteed an item drop if you defeat them before they get away, although the means of defeating them vary from pig to pig.

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has the first encounter with Mastema. He threatens you, the boss theme starts playing... nah, he's just trolling you. He lets you pass without incident.
