* The obscure arcade fighter/beat 'em up hybrid ''Mutant Fighter'', after having you battle a variety of fighters and beast in hand to hand/grappling combat, reveals its final boss to be...'Magician', a wizard who barrages you with spells and doesn't throw a single punch. While not as jarring as some examples, the fact that you get to the end of this elite warrior hand to hand tournament and find a magician is like getting to the end of StreetFighterII and finding a Franchise/{{Terminator}} expy waiting for you instead of M.Bison.

*** Green Goblin could arguably count too, as his battle doesn't affect anything, but at least he's tied into the plot somehow (he's released by the Beetle who's collecting the samples of super powered beings, such as Venom, for Doctor Doom).

** In ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'', Rhino qualifies. After you complete an assignment for Robbie at the Daily Bugle, Spider-Man hears an explosion and investigates it, and he sees Rhyno as well as a bunch of thugs who tell him to "get the equipment back to base" before driving off. After Spider-Man defeats him, the equipment explodes and Spidey literally leaves him hanging. Nothing of him is heard again, nor is it shown what the "equipment" was.

** Weirdly enough, ''VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan'' similarly has Rhino as the only boss who has no relevance to symbiotes (or the main plot, for that matter) at all. He's causing havoc in the city at the beginning of the game as the second boss, and after he's defeated and his mecha suit is broken, he never appears again.

* ''AeroFighters'' has an alien entity -- [[KillerSpaceMonkey a giant skinless apeman]] -- break off a jar as the final boss. The second game has you fight a black eyeball that resembles Buckbaird at the end, or a BedsheetGhost, which is randomly selected. Finally, at the third game, if you proceed good, you either fought a mutant ghost submarine in Bermuda Triangle, or go off to space and fight an UFO in another route. Do badly, and you'll fight a joke cartoon thing instead. And the rest of the game is you fighting various modern-day ([[SchizoTech sometimes future]], however) war machines with a jetfighter (except the third).

* The dragon near the end of ''[[Anime/PrettyCureAllStars Pretty Cure All Stars Spring Carnival.]]''. Even the Cures themselves admit this.

* ''CybermageDarklightAwakening''. You've fought your way through all manner of gun-toting {{mooks}}, [[MechaMook killer robots]] and genetically-engineered SuperSoldiers in high-tech research labs, a crime-infested WretchedHive, the headquarters of a Megacorporation, a blasted-out battlefield, and an AbsurdlySpaciousSewer (twice) - all bread-and-butter for a FirstPersonShooter in the CyberPunk genre. Then right before TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon you find yourself inside a gothic citadel with unmistakably medieval architecture, fighting off robed cultists and [[LivingShadow LivingShadows]] that wouldn't look horribly out of place in Origin Systems Inc's other game, {{Franchise/Ultima}}. Even AllThereInTheManual sheds no light on the in-universe origins or plot significance of this place.

** How is ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' not already on this list? You go through the entire game fighting a giant world-destroying monster with close ties to the main character, and a crazed priest who is intent on using that monster to destroy all life in the world. Then, in the last two hours of the game, they're like "Oh by the way the actual villain is this weird tick creature in a void dimension, kthxbai". You'd heard the final boss' name before plenty of times, but never in a way that gives any context for the actual encounter whatsoever.
