* Jitterbug is built up as the BigBad of Cave shooter ''DeathSmiles''. After you beat him, however, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Tyrannosatan]] suddenly jumps out of an open portal to ''eat'' him. Tyrannosatan has no relevance to the plot, and is only there to provide a more climactic final boss. [[spoiler:Although Jitterbug can come back as [[TrueFinalBoss Bloody Jitterbug]] depending on how you've done.]]

** The third phase of the Werner Werman boss fight has him [[spoiler: being eaten by the cat that can be seen in the background, forcing you to fight the cat instead]]. But then it turns out to be a subversion as [[spoiler: when you defeat the cat, its face falls off, revealing it was a robot controled by Werner himself]].

* For many players the fight against Tenzen near the end of ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Final Fantasy XI's]] Chains of Promathia'' expansion makes no sense. Well, to be fail a lot of [=CoP's=] boss fights come out of no where, but Tenzen stands out because he has been an ally through the whole expansion (and continues to be after the fight). You've learned almost all there is to know about the expansion's plot, you've tracked down the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] location, and you're about he head off to assault the ancient hidden city of "Sea". So why your ally suddenly attacks you is beyond explanation. Some have tried to handwave it as him testing your readiness for the battles ahead, but none of the dialogue before during or after the fight backs that up.

* Many bosses in Tyrian qualify for this. Notable examples include the giant brain you fight near the end of the game, and the god Zinglon that suddenly shows up and attacks you for no explained reason after you defeat the final boss.

* ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' unconventionally inverts this trope with ''common enemies'' instead of bosses being out of context. All boss enemies Cuphead and Mugman fight own their souls to the Devil, who has charged the heroes with taking their contracts back by force. The Run-and-Gun levels on the other hand, feature basic-enemies and mini-bosses who have no real bearing in the plot, they aren't in service to the Devil nor the debtors and don't offer an explanation why they want to kill our heroes so badly other than presumably [[HairTriggerTemper having set foot in their territory]].

* Lampshaded in the intro of ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', where Marcus states that the only things the Vault Hunters found were tentacles and disappointment. Also from ''2'', the giant loader Saturn shows up with absolutely no warning at all. Subverted however with The Warrior, which is frequently discussed in-game as a superweapon of great power.

** Crawmerax the Invincible, which you can fight after finishing the main story of the DLC ''The Secret Armory of General Knoxx'', is an honest-to-goodness Giant Space Crab from Nowhere. The only background for the quest is that there is a legend about a giant invincible crab and that there have been tremors since you completed the final story mission. It has no bearing on the main story at all.

** ''2'' sees the return of Invincible Space Fleas from Nowhere, including the Giant Space Tentacle Monster from Nowhere named Terramorphous the Invincible, the Regular Sized Space Engineer from Nowhere named Hyperius the Invincible, and the Larger than Average Space Kung Fu Master from Nowhere named Master Gee the Invincible, among others.

* ''Three's A Crowd'' of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has Twilight Sparkle and Cadance's day invaded by Discord who's sick and needs care from his "friends", which culminates in the trio going to the middle of absolute nowhere to pick a flower that will treat his illness. So they pick it and '''OUT OF NOWHERE GIANT-ASSED WORM'''. It appears so spontaneously you half expect a [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda boss subtitle and battle music]].
