* [[spoiler: Cackletta's Ghost]], the final boss of the first ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi Mario & Luigi]]'' game, is styled this way. You have to destroy the head and hands before the heart is revealed.
** [[spoiler: Dreamy Bowser]], the final boss of Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, has this to a lesser extent. You only have to destroy the right hand to attack the head, but the left hand can grab one of the bros, forcing you to attack it to get him back. While the other final bosses of the series, [[spoiler: the Elder Princess Shroob's second form and the Dark Star Core]], fight similarly, only these two actually utilize this trope to a notable extent.
