* Most of the dungeons in ''[[Videogame/EarthBound Earthbound]]'' use a larger, powered-up version of a minor dungeon enemy type as the boss, giving it PSI powers and beefed up attacks. Titanic Ant is an Antoid, Mondo Mole is a powered-up mole, Trillionage Sprout resembles a Mobile Sprout enemy, Shrooom! is a powered-up Ramblin' Evil Mushroom, and the Plague Rat of Doom is based on the Rowdy Mouse enemy type. (It's possible that Carbon/Diamond Dog is meant to be one of the overworld dog enemies from elsewhere in the game.) The trope is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that these bosses are implied to be normal enemies suffused with the captured power of the "Your Sanctuary" locations the hero is searching for. It's less justified with Starman Deluxe and Master Belch/Barf (a version of the slime enemies). The game [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the trope by introducing DegradedBoss versions of the Department Store Spook named {{Mook}}.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has unique "boss" versions of many mook types, such as Rocksalt, Torcher, and Roach King (Raider), Commander Jabsco and Lag-Bolt (Talon Company), the Drifter (Wastelander), the Ant Queens in Grayditch, Shalebridge, and the Corvega Factory, General Jingwei (Chinese Officer, ''Operation Anchorage''), Defender Sibley(Brotherhood Outcast, ''Operation: Anchorage''), the Alien Drone Commander and Captain (''Mothership Zeta''), the Presidential Sentinel Unit(Sentry Bot, ''Broken Steel''), and Enclave Squad Sigma and their leader (Enclave Soldiers, ''Broken Steel'').

* [[AnIcePerson Cirno]] from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' could be considered as one for the [[OurFairiesAreDifferent fairies]]. Fairies are the most recurrent cannon fodder in the game, and Cirno is easily the strongest fairy, though that makes her [[OvershadowedByAwesome only slightly less cannon fodder compared to the overpowered protagonists]]. The debut of Clownpiece would restrict Cirno's status to only being the strongest fairy in Gensokyo, however, as Clownpiece is a Hell fairy who is much more powerful than she is.
* Bosses in the ''VideoGame/PokemonRumble'' series are simply supersized versions of Pokemon with proportionately higher stats and a larger range on their attacks. They also temporarily become enraged after they sustain enough hits, which further increases their damage, halves the damage they take, and increases their movement and attack speed. They're also accompanied by indefinitely respawning mobs of their lower evolutionary form if they're an evolved Pokemon (Legendary Pokemon instead getting a species of fully evolved Pokemon that shares one of their types as minions).
* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' has Totem Pokémon. They're Pokémon that are larger than ordinary Pokémon and must be fought at the end of a trial. They can even summon allies to aid them.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' features the Armos Knights, The Moldorm King, and the Helmasaur King, smaller versions of which inhabited their dungeons or the area around them. Additionally Moblins have been redesigned from [[BullDog Bulldogs]] to [[PigMan Pigs]] even with mini tridents, and an implied backstory as [[WasOnceAMan former people]]. This makes them a mini version of the Boarish, Trident wielding Ganon who started as a person.

** Several examples in a ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening.'' Mini bosses King Moblin, and Master Stalfos are this to Bulldog Moblins[[note]]separate from the Pig Moblin which are called Pig Warriors here.[[/note]], and Stalfos respectively. Dungeon boss Moldorm, is a more larger, and powerful of the Mini Moldorm enemies.
** Just like its predecessor, both of the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' contain examples. Mini bosses in ''Ages'', Armos knight, and Blue Stalfos are souped up versions of the Armos, and Shrouded Stalfos enemies. While in ''Seasons'', the mini boss pair of Goriyas is a more powerful version of Bulldog moblins who they closely resemble. Finally both games feature ''Great Moblin'' who is the King of the Pig Moblins, and a recurring GoldfishPoopGang. Being LaughablyEvil, Great moblin [[SoleSurvivor survives, unlike the other examples]].

** In ''VideoGame/NintendoLand'', Pig moblins appear alongside Pig Ganon, making them this to him like in ''A Link to the Past.''

** King Bulblin in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', along with his steed, Lord Bulbo. Other examples include that giant version of the Twilight Kargaroks with trumpet bells for heads that you have to fly up Zora's River on, Diababa (a giant Deku Baba), Twilit Bloat the Shadow Insect Queen, Armogohma (a GiantSpider in a spider filled area), Stallord (biggest Stalfos in ''any'' game, and the player only sees him from the waist up) Argorok (once again Kargarok), and even a boss who came from a corrupted good character, Blizzeta, takes the form of an enemy (Freezard).
** And then there's Ganon, whose OneWingedAngel form resembles a giant Moblin or a Bullbo in ''Twilight Princess''.
