** Bolverk from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 2'' is often described as that game's equivalent of Nelo Angelo. He also has a connection to Dante (his father Sparda killed Bolverk's comrades, who were reincarnated as wolves) but it doesn't really come up in the plot. ** Vergil, Dante's [[CainAndAbel evil twin brother]] from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 3''. [[spoiler:Yes, the same one who becomes Nelo Angelo.]] He is one of the game's main antagonists, and is an equivalent of Dante in almost every way; not only does he have his own [[SuperMode Devil Trigger]] form, he also [[PowerCopying turns Beowulf into a weapon]] like Dante does to the other bosses. ** Dante himself fills this role in ''Franchise/DevilMayCry 4'' when he goes up against Nero. [[spoiler:Angelo Credo]] counts as well.

* ''GargoylesQuest II'' had a literal Mirror Boss, a magic mirror who could transform into a copy of your character. There was [[PuzzleBoss a trick]] to beating it: [[spoiler:any damage you inflict while it's copying you is reflected back on you, so you can only attack it while it's in its natural mirror form]].

* Kojiro in ''BraveFencerMusashi'', a child swords[[strike:man]]boy summoned by Princess Fillet using the same [[SummonEverymanHero Hero Summon]] spell that called Musashi... but instead of rescuing her, he decides to kidnap her to goad Musashi into a duel. Also, the final boss, [[spoiler:Dark Lumina fused with Kojiro]], uses elemental attacks from the same five elements as Musashi's scrolls as well as a sword combo.

** In ''Plague of Shadows'', the boss of the Explodatorium is [[spoiler:Shovel Knight himself, who fights even more like the player would; moving erratically, reflecting projectile, and using Relics]]. The penultimate boss fight against [[spoiler:the Plague of Shadows, which fights the same s Plague Knight does in Shovel Knight's story]], also counts.

Depending on how close the boss' abilities are to the hero's, there may have to be some form of [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard "cheating"]] to insure that the boss is still a challenge. Giving them [[ContractualBossImmunity special immunities]] to things that would normally destroy the player, some SecretAIMoves to separate them from the hero, or just any general application of MyRulesAreNotYourRules to prevent the player from exploiting certain weaknesses. In a rare occasion, a Mirror Boss can turn out to be controlled by another player, as a PvP match in a boss's clothing.
