** [[ThatOneBoss King Arthur]] in ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheBlackKnight''. Any time he's fought, he spends the whole fight galloping away on his horse. The first time, he stops and waits for you after a bit, [[JustToyingWithThem since he's not really serious about the fight]]. As for the [[DiscOneFinalBoss actual fight]], he'll keep galloping while firing off lightning and spells at will, forcing Sonic to time his movements for dodging and eventually catch up so he can flip over Arthur's head and engage in a horseback-and-mid-air sword duel while they're still moving.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' has Wizzrobe, a normal enemy in other games but a miniboss here, who also does the whack-a-mole method, as it fires, disappears, and appears elsewhere to fire again. (They do that in all games, but in this one, there are several specific points where he can appear. You have to spot him, avoid his blast and hit him before he can disappear again, or [[TheQuickDraw be quicker at shooting him]] and cancel his attack entirely as he disappears. Like any good Zelda villain, hit him enough times and he TurnsRed before you can actually kill him.)

** The Char Clawbster, Holey Moley, and Spellican in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D''. The first likes to retreat to the opposite end of its very long battlefield periodically, or worse, to the ''ceiling'' on the opposite side of the battlefield. The second pops out of random parts of an enormous room (Including the walls and ceiling) and has a very bad habit of retreating the moment you get in range to attack it. The third abuses TeleportSpam and gives you very little time to attack before it moves [[GuideDangIt (Though you can buy more time by using Zero Gravity on it)]].

* The second half of the [[EldritchAbomination Waterwraith]] battle in ''{{Pikmin}} 2'' has it trying to run away from you... and running out of breath after a while. This results in a ''VERY'' satisfying retribution for [[ImplacableMan everything]] [[HopelessBossFight it]] [[RocksFallEveryoneDies put]] [[TimedMission you through]].

* The fight against [[BigBad Gnasty Gnorc]] in the original ''SpyroTheDragon'' had you charging after him, hoping that when he paused to taunt you, you were close enough to scorch him once before resuming the chase.
** ''SpyroTheDragon'' is also rife with Get Back Here Enemies, if you're going for 100% completion or if you're in the [[BonusLevel secret bonus level]]. Even worse, they mercilessly taunt you.

* An enemy who is stationary in a small lava pit or pool of water, etc. Like the previous sort, they will come out to attack, but once they have finished firing at you, or as soon as you take the offensive, they will sink down into their pond, where you can't get them.

cannot attack them. Compare TakeCover when the player can do this too.



If you're chasing the boss in a circle, it's ChasingYourTail. Not to be confused with YouWillNotEvadeMe (which is when the boss decides that it is ''not'' going to allow you to pull these sorts of shenanigans on it.). Polar opposite of the AdvancingBossOfDoom, which chases you instead of you chasing it.

it. Contrast RoadRunnerPc where it's you who run circles around the boss, dodging their attacks while attacking on your own; being one may be the key of catching up with a Get Back Here Boss.

* In ''PokemonMysteryDungeon'', You can get missions where you have to apprehend an outlawed Pokémon. When you find them, half of the time they will try to turn tail and run for it. If the outlaw makes it to the stairs, you fail the mission. Arceus help you if the outlaw is an [[TeleportSpam Abra]].
