** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestII'' had one of the earliest examples of the Giant Space Flea from Nowhere final boss. After defeating the BigBad of the game, Sidoh (Malroth in the American version), who he turned out to serve and worship, appears out of nowhere to be the final boss. This was particularly nasty in the US version, as absolutely ''nothing'' hinted at his presence aside from a minor quest item named "Eye of Malroth" (and the [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil box art]]; look closely at the mural behind Hargon), and he is infinitely harder than the game's BigBad, Hargon, mostly because he randomly casts Healall to set his life back to full whenever he feels like it.
** ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'': Bjorn the Behemoose can appear to be one (emphasis on the Giant, he's the size of a mountain and is fought from the top of a tower) via accidental SequenceBreaking, as the key he drops is needed for the final dungeon but he can be fought just after three-fourths of the way in the game.
** Deathtamoor of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' gets namedropped pretty late in the game, as well, with his evil being OffstageVillainy, via his minions.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'' the (plot relevant) final boss is set up from the very beginning of the game. There are two {{Bonus Dungeon}}s, with {{Bonus Boss}}es, but they're, well, bonus dungeons.
** From ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'', Megalodon and Ruin (from when you're trying to escape [[spoiler:The Black Citadel]]) both fit this trope pretty well.

* The VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Fan Game VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFuckboys has the sudden inclusion of Vile from VideoGame/MegaManX. Although he's [[AdaptationPersonalityChange a ''whole'' lot more vulgar,]] and has a vendetta against his father; [[spoiler: Toy Freddy, who he mistakes for normal Freddy.]]

** Tag Tournament 2 has Unknown return, but is less [[BuffySpeak Space Flea-y]], because the game confirms the EpilepticTrees floating around about it being Jun Kazama. Also, as a ContinuityNod to Unknown's own ending from the first, the wolf thingie is gone.

* In NoituLove 2 we have some pretty strange bosses. Starting with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfBQSQWYKH4&list=UU3Q13RAmFVfDkYOWnnqFM2A a boat with tank treads that tries to run you over]] in stage run, to a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-CVtyAp8cY&list=UU3Q13RAmFVfDkYOWnnqFM2A&index=89 train that apparently thinks it's some kind of transformer]], to the last boss, which becomes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIMWLSurr6g&list=UU3Q13RAmFVfDkYOWnnqFM2A&index=86 a fetus thing, a giant mechanical thing with gears,]] and... [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking A person.]]

** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'', the primary boss is, well [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Nemesis]]. However, twice in-game, you are attacked by Gravedigger, a Film/{{Tremors}}-esque giant worm, which shows up with zero fanfare besides an earth tremor, and is never spoken of again.

** In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', why exactly was Wesker keeping a GiantEnemyCrab in the giant rotating elevator of his underground base? (Chris actually theorized that Wesker sent it to kill him and Sheeva)

* The [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazi Frankenstein]] in the Prague level in ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheEmperorsTomb''. Granted, he is holding a PlotCoupon, but he comes from out of nowhere with no explanation, no backstory, and nothing to suggest ThoseWackyNazis were engaging in anything other than bog-standard Nazism, not SuperScience. Indy doesn't even bat an eyelash as if throwing acid at an 8' tall fireball and furniture-throwing Super-Soldier is part and parcel with being an [[AdventurerArchaeologist archaeologist.]]

** Another one from Skyrim are the twin dragons Voslaarum and Naaslaarum, whom appears in the Forgotten Vale. There is absolutely no hint that there are even dragons in that region, much less two that are ''frozen under the lake''. Unlike the Frost Giants in the area, unless you found a way around the lake you WILL meet these two during the course of the DLC story quest. Fortunately, they aren't much stronger than your garden variety Revered Dragons and their only real gimmick is coming in a pair and destroying portions of the frozen lake as they dive in and out of it.

** The final boss in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow'' qualifies, since no one expected [[spoiler:it to burst out of Dmitri's body as a fusion of all the demons he dominated]].
** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'' has the final boss turn out to be [[spoiler:{{Satan}}]].
** After all the strife and struggle of reaching the end of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment'', the player finally faces the mastermind behind the events of the game... [[spoiler:The Time Reaper]]. Granted, he reveals that a villain from ''VideoGame/KidDracula'', [[spoiler:Galamoth]], had sent him from [[spoiler:[[{{Disney/Aladdin}} TEN THOUSAND YEARS]] in the future]] to the past to alter history and make him replace Dracula as the Dark Lord, but, as [[Creator/TheQuarterGuy The Quarter Guy]] stated in his countdown video for his 15 favorite ''Castlevania'' bosses, there was no buildup to his identity other than he was messing with the timeline, and after he is defeated, he is never brought up again (QG even considered it a BigLippedAlligatorMoment).
