* At the end of the Alien campaign in ''VideoGame/AliensVsPredator 2'', after a difficult battle against 2 Predators, the game ends with you fighting [[BigBad Dr. Eisenberg]], a human with a shotgun who goes down after one hit. [[Anticlimax Hilariously, you can lose this fight if you're not careful.]]

** ''{{Persona 4}}'' ends the same way [[spoiler:in the True Ending]], wherein ThePowerOfFriendship allows [[spoiler:the protagonist's initial Persona, Izanagi, to transform into Izanagi-no-Okami (Great God Izanagi)]]. After a few turns of eating 999 damage spells that would instantly KO him in regular gameplay, the hero unleashes one final attack, [[spoiler:Myriad Truths, to wipe away all of the lies and deceit in humanity]], instantly ending the battle.

* In ''[[VideoGame/WingCommanderTheKilrathiSaga Wing Commander III]]'' after completing the final mission, which is basically a homage to the Trench Run in ANewHope, you come face to face with a quartet of heavy fighters before you can jump home and complete the game. Under normal circumstances these might be a legit threat, but at this point they spawn with no missiles and you are flying a ship that is pretty close to a game-breaker.

Note that this is distinct from AnticlimaxBoss. An Anticlimax Boss is a lot of build-up for no payoff; a boss that's meant to be challenging in theory, but misses the mark in practice. A Post Final Boss is meant to be a brief spike in the action before all conflicts are properly resolved, and everything is summed up. For that reason, a Post Final boss tends to very easy to defeat; most of the time, [[ZeroEffortBoss the battle is]] [[ForegoneVictory impossible to lose]].

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' with the BonusBoss Nokturnus, who was summoned in an incredibly misguided effort to take out the BigBad. [[spoiler:Defeat Nokturnus in a few turns, and he will recognize your worth and cheerfully CurbStomp said BigBad for you.]]

* After defeating Bane in ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'', you fight some group of mooks until you get to the Joker, who goes down rather easily.
* Wild Arms 2 has [[spoiler:Lord Blazer]], fought after annihilating the main threat, the [[spoiler:Kuiper Belt]]. While [[spoiler:Lord Blazer]] himself is arguably a very large threat plot-wise, he is weak in battle, and the fight is scripted in that all you have to do to beat him is use a certain command multiple times.

* In ''DarkForces,'' you beat the final level's boss: the main general who's been the game's BigBad, though of course Darth Vader outranks him. He's got a suit that can do everything his Dark Trooper robots can, ''plus can shoot heat seeking missiles, up to ten at a time.'' How dead will he make you? ''Very.'' But once you get past him, you must get to a ship and escape. Guarding it? A single Imperial Officer. The weakest of the human enemies, with your standard blaster he goes down in one shot (Officers take one, Stormtroopers take two, Commandos take three.) He is the actual last enemy you will "fight." Of course, if you ''barely'' survived the BigBad on your [[VideoGameLives last life]], get taken out by ''this'' chump, and must [[ContinuingIsPainful retake the level from the beginning]], you will cry like a baby.

* VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption has a variant. After the final member of Dutch's gang is killed, the game makes a TimeSkip and the player can hunt down a corrupt former "ally". This mission is a side-mission, but the credits wont roll before it's completed.
* VideoGame/StreetFighterV has this in ''A Shadow Falls''. Ryu fights Ken as the final opponent in ''A Shadow Falls'' after [[spoiler: Ryu kills M. Bison, and the credits roll. After Ken is defeated, Ryu's headband falls onto the ground, and Ken says that he feels like Ryu does not need it anymore, but Ryu grabs the headband back, saying that he still might need it, and Ryu and Ken fist-bump.]]
