Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'', the Rare and Very Rare Snurps fill in this trope. In both of their cases, they take only one point of damage (3 at most using defense debuffs). They both have a high chance of escaping the battle too, leading to a lot of grief.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MordheimCityOfTheDamned'': Chaos Daemons will appear on any Brutal difficulty level when your warband is above level 6. They're extremely dangerous in close combat, durable, hostile to everyone they encounter... and give you a huge 5XP if you manage to kill it.

* This trope is parodied in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', the sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Earthbound}}''. At one point, you have the chance to fight the rare Mystery Metal Monkey. It's got stupid high defense in order to compensate for its low HP, but instead of giving the player a lot of experience upon its defeat, the game instead tells the player that, roughly, 'they had a good experience.'
** There are regular Metal Slimes in ''Mother 3'' as well. Chapter 1 has the Soot Dumpling, an enemy with very high defense that can only be beaten with two 16-hit combos. If you don't kill it quickly enough, it blows away in the wind. Later on, you'll find the Black Beanling, which has powerful PK Fire attacks and can run away to boot. Beating it gives you a whopping 16,000 experience points. There's also the Top Dogfish, which gives 800 DP and always drops Meteotite which can be sold for 2500 DP, effectively making it the richest enemy in the game. It's very rare like the others, but it's very tough and hits hard, so it blurs the line between this and BossInMookClothing.

** The Bright Smile, a rare enemy which drops 2,000 DP, can only be found in the tunnels of the Highway area. Many hairs have been pulled out by gamers spending dozens of minutes trying to find the Bright Smile, only to accidentally hit it with their Pork Bean.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has the rare black diamond Shadows, which liked the Golden Hands from previous games drop tons of experience and money, but are extremely resistant to damage. You'll also only find a handful in any dungeon, as they're randomly hidden in various receptacles throughout a given dungeon.

* Possibly due going back to using demons as enemies like the older games, ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' instead has the rare black diamond Shadows, Treasure Demons, which liked like the Golden Hands from previous games drop tons of experience and money, but are extremely resistant to damage. damage in all except one element. The major difference is that just like how using demons as enemies means you can negotiate with them, you can get Treasure Demons to join you as Personas, and they're added to your compendium. Although they can't be used in battle, they can be fused with other personas, in which they function like Elemental-race demons from the traditonal SMT games. You'll also only find a handful in any dungeon, as they're randomly hidden in various receptacles throughout a given dungeon.dungeon, though a creatable tool, Treasure Trap, can increase their spawn chances.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki'' have Shining Poms, which can dodge everything but S-Crafts and net you 1000 EXP per kill.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki'' have Shining Poms, which net enormous amounts of both EXP and sepith per kill. However, their agility is so enormous that only [[LimitBreak S-Crafts]] can dodge everything but hit them, they tend to run away whenever they get a turn, and after Chapter 1 even S-Crafts and net you 1000 EXP per kill. will do insufficient damage to actually ''kill'' them with their increasingly enormous HP counts. Fortunately, they're vulnerable to OneHitKill Arts like Shadow Spear, which quickly becomes the preferred tool for killing them.

* ''Heracles no Eikou - Ugokidashita Kamigami'', the 1993 Game Boy chapter of the Japan-only ''Videogame/GloryofHeracles'' RPG series, has Drain Eyes. In a moment when the best you can get after beating a monster is 40-50 exp, there comes these little tiny walking eyes: they tend to flees and, when they hit you, they take 6 exp OFF of your current level. But if you beat them? There come 250 xp FOR EACH ONE.

** A lot of the tougher viruses, such as the Popper (bagworm) and Megalian (Sphinx heads) have chips that require an ultra-high busting level to obtain, with very beneficial powers or ability to trigger a Program Advance, but because of their evasive nature or defensive abilities, you have to hope for the right chip on the first go-around to take everyone out- and then worry about actually getting the chip and not Zenny. Made worse with [=BN3=]'s Custom form, which causes unique chips to appear after battle under special circumstances.
