* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' has an odd example in that it's not accessed in-game, instead accessed from the starting menu and found in the same room as the SoundTest and multiplayer arena. You fight monsters appropriate to the party's level in the standard game and all healing is done during combat (which means that if you're a high enough level, ''every'' fight is against [[BonusLevelOfHell the Dullahan]], without setting up SummonMagic beforehand). Oh, and there are no rewards save getting a new victory streak record.

* The aptly named Monster Arena in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. In addition to fighting monsters you've captured, you can also have the owner of the Arena create {{Bonus Boss}}es based on area or species, as well as Original Creation bosses that make the storyline endbosses look like utter pansies.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', like ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'', has the Lost Chapter, except that you'll be seeing the RecurringBoss Jeanne ''being constantly thrown in as mini-boss.'' (for the record, you probably will fight said mini-boss almost 10 times during the entire run)
* ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'', like ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', has Operation 101. It's an arena with endless waves of enemies coming at you. It takes about an hour to finish. During the ordeal, you end up fighting Laambo thrice, Walltha twice (at one point with Laambo), and for the final portion, Vorkenn again!

* The ''DragonQuest'' series features literal Monster Arenas; that is, ones where only monsters fight. In the early games, you just bet tokens on which monster you think will win a battle. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' re-introduces the ability to recruit monsters, so you can have a team of your own monsters fight through tournaments against teams lead by other characters, even unlocking the ability to summon your monster team for a few turns in any battle.

* It's the norm for each ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' game to have one of these, and it's generally where you'll encounter [[ContinuityCameo the cameo characters]] from previous Tales games.

* At the start of ''DarkSun: Shattered Lands'', your party is comprised of gladiator slaves, periodically forced to fight in a colosseum. You're soon given a way to escape, but the game allows you to grind in the colosseum as long as you want for gold and xp, first. Of course, it soon encourages you to get on with the story, by releasing overpowered monsters because, since most gladiators don't survive that long, you're ''clearly'' awesome enough to handle them.
