* ''VideoGame/RazingStorm''[='=]s final stage and FinalBoss require you to successfully complete the final segment of Stage 3, which has you defending the bridge you're standing on from a [[TakingYouWithMe last-ditch]] MacrossMissileMassacre by the [[SpiderTank giant mecha spider]] you've been fighting. If the bridge is destroyed, the game ends immediately, with no opportunity to continue.

If the bridge is destroyed, the game ends immediately, with no opportunity to continue. While Stage 4 is presented as a "bonus stage", the fact that you don't qualify for the high score table if you don't access and complete it makes the Stage 4 boss fall under this trope.

* There's two actually two contenders for the final boss of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}'' (The Master and the Lieutenant) depending on whether you tackle the Cathedral or the Military Base last, but fights with either of them can be skipped by sneaking in and blowing up the buildings they're in (or in The Master's case, [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath convincing him that his entire plan is futile and causing him to commit suicide]].)

Added DiffLines:

* Should you make it to the end of ''VideoGame/RomancingWalker'' without a high enough relationship with anyone in your BattleHarem, you have no choice but to retreat and wait as the FinalBoss [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroys the universe]]. You can also trigger the same NonstandardGameOver if you ''do'' have a high enough relationship with any of your partners, but decide to leave the Astral Plane anyway.
* ''VideoGame/GalGun: Double Peace'' locks you out of a final boss battle if you don't have a good enough relationship with your chosen love interest by the end of the second-to-last stage.

** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', it's the ''Law and Chaos'' paths that lead to this trope. [[spoiler:On Law, Lucifer becomes the FinalBoss and immediately afterwards you get an ending similar to ''IV''[='=]s Law ending, with Tokyo being sucked into a black hole and Mikado being ushered into an era of peace, though with the caveat that Flynn is still at large. On Chaos, with Merkabah already dead, you get an ending similar to ''IV''[='=]s Chaos ending, Lucifer crowns you the new king of Tokyo and Mikado in a society where MightMakesRight and both cities run ablaze with eternal individual warfare, though he also tasks you with eventually defeating Flynn to complete the picture.]] Either way, [[spoiler:you don't get to enter the Cosmic Egg, you don't get to kill the Divine Powers for real, and you don't get to fight the real FinalBoss, YHVH.]]

* The worst ending in ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' can be achieved as early as reaching the Outer Wall for the first time, thereby skipping the Plantation, Last Cave, [[FinalBoss Undead Core]], and [[BrutalBonusLevel Sacred Ground]]. The latest you can do it is before you unlock the Last Cave.
** 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.

* ''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.
