* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' allows you to skip the final boss battle by TalkingTheMonsterToDeath if your Wisdom stat is high enough (23+).
** There's a multitude of ways to skip the final boss. And some of them are actually more awesome than just fighting it.

* Going through the Last Cave without getting the Booster back from Momorin will cause the passage to Sacred Grounds to not open after defeating the Undead Core. If you also saved Quote or Curly (the other requirement to access the Sacred Grounds) the Last Cave will have certain jumps which can only be made one way without the Booster, making it impossible to go back to get the Booster.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''VideoGame/GodzillaUnleashed'': Part of the plot involves strange, powerful crystals forming on Earth. At the conclusion of the story mode, [=SpaceGodzilla=] uses their power to manifest on Earth and assert himself the FinalBoss. If, however, your monster spent all the previous levels [[DrunkOnTheDarkside corrupting itself by absorbing power from the crystals]] you don't get to fight [=SpaceGodzilla=]. Instead, ''you'' essentially become the final boss as every other faction in the game teams up to take your [[OneWingedAngel mutated]] ass down, leading to a whole different game ending should you win.

* The UFO endings for the ''SilentHill'' games do this. However, that may be because they are joke endings.

* Playing as Almond in ''VideoGame/NoituLove 2'' locks you out of either FinalBoss fights with [[spoiler: Tango and Waltz]], instead stopping after the boss of stage 5.

** ''[[SilentHillShatteredMemories Shattered Memories]]'' does this for all endings. This game technically has [[MooksButNoBosses no bosses period]], but both of these are unusual for the series.

* In the ''NeverwinterNights: Hordes of the Underdark'' ExpansionPack, you can engineer this yourself: by obtaining a couple of very valuable pieces of information, you can end the FinalBoss during the pre-battle banter.
* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' had two final bosses: [[spoiler:Ming Xiao and the Sheriff]]. Siding with the Kuei-jin or [=LaCroix=], respectively, in the end freed you from fighting one of them. [[spoiler:Too bad that their endings give you either a bad case of dead or an eternity spent on the ocean floor. In the good endings, you have to defeat both bosses.]]
* Some endings in StarFoxCommand can lead to this, though the game does always end with a boss fight. The TrueFinalBoss, [[spoiler:Emperor Anglar's True Form]], is only fought in four out of nine possible endings [[spoiler:-- making the original path's ending a FinalBossPreview]].

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} Salamander]]'' for the {{MSX}} denied the final stage and good ending to players who didn't put ''Gradius 2'' [[OldSaveBonus in the second slot]] and pick up a crystal in one of the previous stages.

* In ''TechRomancer'', there are very few routes in the branching storylines that don't result in a final confrontation between the characters and BigBad Goldibus, but they do exist. Some substitute a rival character instead of Goldibus, some don't have [[OneWingedAngel the second half of the boss fight]].

* In ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'', [[YouLoseAtZeroTrust if your party's morale is low enough]] on the Kingdom Branch, you'll be sent to the Bad Ending and won't fight the normal final boss.

* In ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'', [[YouLoseAtZeroTrust if your party's morale is low enough]] on the Kingdom Branch, you'll be sent to the Bad Ending and won't fight the normal final boss. This is because, without Bastion's friends having the will to back him up, [[spoiler:Faulkner blasts him with Zulwarn's brainwashing wave, turning Bastion against his allies. The final battle becomes you cutting down your former allies.]]
