** ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'': After defeating final boss [[spoiler:Loptr as Aesir]], Loki depowers him in a cutscene, and you get to wail on Loptr with near impunity before [[Franchise/KamenRider Rider Kicking]] him into oblivion with [[spoiler:Omne]].

* [[VideoGame/MegaManZero ''Mega Man Zero 3'']]: After you beat Omega [[spoiler:Zero]], the Guardians paralyze him to make him use up the rest of his power. Then you can land the final blow with the Z-Saber.

* ''VideoGame/Rayman3HoodlumHavoc'': Defeating final boss Reflux leaves BigBad Andre completely vulnerable. He ''flees'' from you. To defeat him, all you need to do is ''make a funny face'' at him.
* Non-final boss example: Tubba Blubba from ''VideoGame/PaperMario''. After defeating [[spoiler:his heart]], intended to be Chapter 3's real boss, it turns out he has 0 defense and only 10 [=HP=], and it only takes one turn to beat him.

* After two phases of the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'', Cassius Bright ''finally'' shows up to deliver a BigDamnHeroes moment and weaken it. You then fight a third phase, where the boss has vastly lower HP and Defense, doesn't even attempt to fight back, and you start with all your [[LimitBreak S-Crafts]] fully charged. It's less of a fight and more of a playable CoupDeGraceCutscene.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' has a string off three boss fights after the final dungeon and "real" FinalBoss, though they're actually fairly challenging rather than being zero-effort, and the last is a HeadsIWinTailsYouLose that sets up the sequel.
** ''Cold Steel II'' one-ups this by having two post-final ''chapters''. The "Finale" is the real conclusion of the main plotline and features a BossRush of ''5'' battles, but it's not the end of the game. You then have the Divertissement, a brief AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent sequence, and the Epilogue, which features a Post-Final Dungeon and Boss. Neither are particularly difficult (the enemies in the "Post Final Dungeon" don't even count towards the enemy log), they mainly serve to let the player go to town with the game's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters one last time.

** After defeating the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', [[OlympusMons Tapu Koko]] recognizes you as a WorthyOpponent and appears as your final encounter before the credits roll.

** After defeating the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', [[OlympusMons Tapu Koko]] recognizes you as a WorthyOpponent and appears as your final encounter before the credits roll. You can catch it if you're so inclined, but here you only have to defeat it. It will reappear right where it is any time after the credits roll.

** The most recent version of ''Lunar'' averts the trope completely; because the "Prove your identity" requirement was added by the company that handled the first remake, it's not present here.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'''s launch story, Lahabrea serves as this. You've just [[spoiler: defeated Gaius and the Ultima Weapon, a fight that, when it was new, was relatively difficult]], when Lahabrea shows up expecting to finish the job with you weakened. When you engage him, Hydaelyn blesses you with the power of the crystals, giving you constantly regenerating HP and increased damage, as well as Lahabrea having almost no mechanics aside from one [=AoE=] nuke and not doing enough damage otherwise to be a threat.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Calamity Ganon is more or less the actual final boss, the Dark Beast Ganon fight that follows is the denouement, since you're given an EleventhHourSuperpower that kills the boss in eight hits and he only has one attack, a WaveMotionGun BreathWeapon that can OneHitKill you, but isn't particularly difficult to avoid.

* Possibly the earliest known example: In the original NES ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' and its remake, after killing Hitler/Master D/The Leader, you must escape the base (or in the remake, the Albatross airship). As you climb out of the soon to explode base, you face one last enemy standing in the way of your escape: the cyborg soldier who was a boss in earlier levels. Interestingly enough, there's nothing stopping you from just ignoring him and continuing your climb.
