* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' is mostly a hybrid of ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''-style HackAndSlash and ''VideoGame/PanzerDragoon''/''AceCombat'' style flight combat. The TrueFinalBoss is a NintendoHard RhythmGame. It should noted that the game's soundtrack is primarily composed of classical music samples arranged to sound harsh and dissonant. All the other possible Final Bosses are fought in the same way you've been fighting for most of the game.

* In the very last part of the ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' series, Kaguya Otsutsuki shows up out of the blue and every bad thing that ever happened in the universe was attributed to her influence so the Uchiha couldn't be held responsible for all the evil things they did. It's very jarring considering every other villain in the series had heavy foreshadowing, or was a henchman of someone important. It's especially jarring considering the many years and hundred chapters spent with Madara [[spoiler:and a man calling himself Madara]] being the BigBad of the story and at least 2 or so years in the final battle against both him and his [[TheDragon dragon]] Obito. After all this, she's mentioned, introduced, and defeated within the final 40 chapters.

* In the GBA adaptation of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', the final boss turns out to be none other than [[spoiler:''Draco Malfoy'']]. There was absolutely no build-up to him being there whatsoever (mind you, this didn't happen in the book) and quite literally just pops up just as you're about to rescue Sirius. The battle itself has ''literally no'' impact on the story whatsoever. Its only purpose is possibly to have a more satisfying final boss as compared to the fight against Lupin (which wasn't really a fight, so much as it was "keep Buckbeak alive"). To make it worse, the game tricks you into thinking that Lupin would be the final boss, since aside from the Demetors, he's technically the last enemy Harry and his friends face in the book. Not only that, he received his own unique battle theme so you know that he's not a normal boss and he is fought at the climax of the story.

* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFightersXIV'': You're in a straight up martial arts tournament, but when you defeat the champion, a demonic entity called Verse suddenly appears and attacks the stadium. The endings of several of the teams involve trying to figure out just what the heck Verse is and why it attacked.

* Most ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' are billed as 1 on 1 showdowns, but occasionally, a third fictional or historical character ([[ExaggeratedTrope and sometimes, a fourth and fifth as well]]) will appear near the end to rap against both of the original combatants.

** During the main quest for the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the player will encounter the "Ice Giant" [[spoiler: Karstaag]]. Unlike the other participants in [[spoiler: Hircine's]] hunt, you don't get to meet him until you have to fight him in in the glacier. [[spoiler: He has a unique model: a giant, four-eyed yeti monster with horns, which is unlike anything else in the game.]] Where he came from or what he actually is never gets discussed in-game. (A popular fan theory from the time stated that he may be a Kamal, one of the Akiviri "snow demons" who staged a failed invasion of Morrowind in the distant past.) [[spoiler: ''Skyrim'' later reveals that Karstaag was a Frost Giant, an offshoot of Giants that are native to a place called The Forgotten Vale. How he got himself to Solstheim? Still a mystery.]]

* On the whole, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG: Legend of the Seven Stars'' is pretty good about making sure all its bosses are either connected to the plot in some way or at the very least foreshadowed. However, nothing whatsoever explains what happens when you [[SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace break up the Princess's wedding to a minor villain]]: The chefs who prepared the wedding cake get upset that their work will be unappreciated, so they attack you. Then, the wedding cake inexplicably comes to life and uses its inexplicably vast magical powers to try and kill you for some inexplicable reason. Similarly, the boss for the 3rd star piece has absolutely no connection with the plot and fights the party simply because they don't know who he is.

** Sol Dae Rokker, the boss of mission four in ''3'', is supposedly "an artifact of the solar deity that some Japanese believe in". But again, some of the alternative routes of the game have you fighting acid-spewing snails, zombies, man-eating plants, titanic maggots, jellyfishes bigger than your submarine, and a squadron of the Japanese Army that isn't aware that UsefulNotes/WorldWarII ended decades ago.

Added DiffLines:

** The boss in question is a living version of the Dejarik piece R2-D2 uses to beat Chewbacca in the movie. Still a bit of an odd choice.
