* The [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Famicom]] game ''TenchiMuyo Game Hen'' has everyone's favorite SpacePirate Ryoko Hakubi as a late-game boss, following her [[DamselInDistress abuction]] by the BigBad halfway through the story. It's a bit of a subversion in that defeating Ryoko earns the player a Game Over; the object of the mission is to defeat the Ryoko ''clones'' (easily identifiable as [[PaletteSwap recolors]] of the real one]] who are acting as the real one's {{flunk|yBoss}}ies.

* The third stage of ''MagicalBattleArena'' has your character finding her respective ally ([[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha and Fate]], [[OriginalGeneration Sarara and Kirara]], [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina and Naga]]) only for the [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny rules of the universe forcing them to fight]] to get out of their current area. The only ones that doesn't are [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura]] and [[Anime/MahoujinGuruguru Kukuri]], who instead invokes DefeatMeansFriendship on each other for the team battle on the next stage, and [[TheDragon Ruru]] and [[BigBad Nowel]], who will go through said team battle solo.

*** The PS3 version adds several more opportunities to fight your friends, most notably [[spoiler:in the team battle mode in the coliseum, the final battle of which will pit all the party members you're not using against the party members you ''are'' using.]]

** Kimahri is an interesting case when you fight him in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. He's not exactly Tidus' friend (at first) and he ambushes him on the road to the boat, initiating a DuelBoss battle. Wakka breaks up the fight after the two exchange a few blows and the reason Kimahri attacked Tidus was because he didn't trust him around Yuna when they first met, even though both he and Tidus are supposed to be on the same side (protecting Yuna on her pilgrimage).

** The famous "anchor duel" between Yugi and the BrainwashedAndCrazy Jonouchi. Both of them are chained to an anchor that will drag at least one of them into the sea if the time limit is over. Between the feet of a duelist is little box that contains the key of his shackle, and reducing the Life Points of the opponent to 0 will open the box. Malik is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to use different keys for the boxes, so saving attempts will become useless. Yugi successfully de-brainwashes Jonouchi by constantly reminding him of their friendship, and Jonouchi manages to end this duel in a draw, so both keys can be unlocked. Jonouchi saves Yugi in the sea, while Jonouchi is saved by his little sister Shizuka.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' has this in spades. [[spoiler: Due to most of the Earthrealm warriors dying in the previous game, Quan Chi claimed their souls and they serve under him as revenants. Sub-Zero, Jax, Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Stryker, and Kitana are under Quan Chi's control and you fight them all eventually. Jax and Sub-Zero are able to be saved and return to their normal selves, but the rest aren't as lucky.]]

* This is a staple of the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' series. A fair amount or sometimes even most of your party members will have a boss battle (or two or three) due to various circumstances. They want to test you, they want to prove that they're better than you, you have a temporary conflict of interests, there's a misunderstanding, etc.

Unlike the other conflicts listed here, this one is just as dark as it sounds.]]

* Happens a bit in TacticsOgre. You are guaranteed to fight Vice at least once in the game (The reasons differ, though, between him making a FaceHeelTurn or accidentally getting caught in a bad spot), Leonard often fights you, Guildus is reanimated into a death knight, and in one path, Denim's sister Kachua is so angry at you she ''actually stays behind in the fight against Lans Tartare!!'' (In other chapters, Lans tells her to run away and she obliges.)
** Tactics Ogre's GaidenGame[[spoiler:/{{Prequel}}]], ''The Knight of Lodis'' also does this. In Path A, Orson is fought, and then Rictor is possessed, making you fight him twice. But in Path B, Rictor is only fought once and it is instead Cybil who is possessed by the BigBad. The first Rictor battle happens regardless of path choice, as does the battle with the mermaid Aerial.

** If ExecutiveMeddling did't happen, Yusei would duel his other best friend Crow, who was originally planned to be the FinalBoss of the Dark Signer arc.
