** The final boss of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', [[spoiler:Duke]], has a [[LimitBreak Mystic Arte]] called Big Bang that deals an absurd amount of damage to your entire party but can never reduce your HP below 1. It's not technically a HPToOne effect but at higher difficulty levels (and ''especially'' against his TrueFinalBoss form) it might as well be. (''Unless'', you happen to be playing the {{PS3}} UpdatedRerelease on Hard or Unknown mode, in which case the "LastChanceHitPoint" condition is thrown out of the window and you can ''really'' [[TotalPartyKill start worrying]]).

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'': Effects such as poison or starving, both of which gradually tick down your health, will cease damaging you at 1/2 heart of health. However, other tick-down effects, like wither or fire, will kill you.

* Old MMO Lineage 2 had a downplayed version of this called Seal of Limit, [=AoE=] spell that hard caps affected target's HP at 30%. Bonus points for being ridiculously spammable and being a hard counter to Balance Life, the single best healing spell in the game.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Sephiroth can use "Heartless Angel" in his OneWingedAngel form at the end of the game. He even kept it for his BonusBoss fights in KingdomHearts (in which it also reduced your MP to 0, meaning you had to recover from it with items) and his playable appearance in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' (which mercifully only takes your ''Brave'' Points down to 1), so in a way, it's almost become his trademark attack. It's also used by him in ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' during the Nibelheim event.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', the TrueFinalBoss' last attack will be a point-blank, unavoidable beam that reduces your HP to a very small fraction of a percent.

Added DiffLines:

** The first boss of Sastasha (Hard) in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' will target a random player with Tail Screw, which will reduce their HP to 1. Normally, the healer can easily fix this, but the boss will also use a poison based debuff before using Tail Screw. If the healer didn't cure the debuff beforehand, then the chip damage will kill the player after the Tail Screw attack.

** The Final Boss of the KillEmAll ending has a GravityScrew attack. At one point in the fight he uses it with such force that it will cause FallingDamage, though the Falling Damage in and of itself can't kill you.

Added DiffLines:

** Inverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' with the giant bird monsters, who are always reduced to at least 1 HP before being killable (they start off in the air, then land once sufficiently damaged, but even a 99999 hit won't outright kill them from the start).


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'': some damage-over-time effects like Disease Cloud and Envenomed Weapons never kill the target, keeping them at one or two HP as long as the effect lasts.
