* In ''MagicalBattleArena'', if you hold down a button while selecting [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] she will become the Lord of Nightmares. Let me repeat that, the ''[[RealityWarper Lord of]] [[EldritchAbomination Nightmares]]''. She has absurdly high attack power and is immune to damage, but automatically loses after a set period of time.

* In ''VideoGame/FridayThe13thTheGame'', Jason has several advantages over the counselors: [[NecessaryDrawback while he can't run very fast]], he can use VillainTeleportation to get the drop on his prey, can sense their locations (better still if [[CanSmellFear they're scared witless]]), and is hard as hell to shake off, much less kill.

** The Mega Blast (''Afterbirth'' expansion only), which is unlocked by beating the [[TrueFinalBoss TruEST Final Boss]] with every character. It's the only item in the game that requires 12 rooms to recharge, and with a good reason: it's a giant WaveMotionGun that lasts ''multiple'' rooms.

** The expansion ''Afterbirth +'' introduced the Delirious, another 12-rooms activable item spawns charmed [[UpToEleven overpowered versions of bosses]]. The catches: you have to defeat the [[TrueFinalBoss True]] ([[RunningGag For Real This Time]]) [[TrueFinalBoss Final Boss]] first, and the charmed bosses might try to kill ''you''.

** The Artifact weapons in ''Legion'' are designed to be this in-universe - several of them are major lore items (the Ashbringer, Felo'melorn, Doomhammer, and the shards of [[ArtifactOfDoom Frostmourne]] are just some of them), and they're upgradeable too. And since they're level 110, any old content is little more than mincemeat against these weapons.

** The Stop Watch is an upgraded Broken Watch that permanently slows down enemies (the latter either slows down enemies, speeds them up, or does nothing, at random). It requires donating 999 coins to the Donation Machine, although this can be done in multiple playthroughs.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' features two battles where you control two parties, switching between them whenever your turn comes around. In both battles, you have at least one party member in the other team who has an attack that can reduce resistances, even to the point of creating a weakness. The other party is also decently built, with many useful endgame-tier skills and their own stock of items that they can use. However, the two battles are the FinalBoss and the BonusBoss, who are both absurdly difficult, so chances are you're going to need the extra firepower.

** Don't forget [[{{Badass}} Hakumen's]] Unlimited form! "[[BadassBoast A fight? No, this will be a]] ''[[BadAssBoast massacre]]''", indeed... Just like with the above two, Hakumen's considerable power is also completely justified, as he is the Susanoo Unit, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Ninja Samurai Animated Armor Robot]] that slayed [[{{Orochi}} the Black Beast]]... Also, [[BroughtDownToBadass he's still unable to access his full power]].

* The VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey ''Untold'' remake has Grimoire Stones as a random drop, which let characters obtain certain enemy skills or share their own skills. The enemy skills include the {{FinalBoss}}'s hilariously overpowering {{Signature Move}}s. One step beyond ''that'' is the Seven King Grimoire, which combines the powers of seven of the game's story bosses. [[note]]Getting even one King Grimoire is a GuideDangIt, to the point where the only way you're likely to know they exist at all is through GameFAQs[[/note]].
