* All of the Bowser fights in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' are type 2 that resemble type 1 fights. You have to avoid throwing Bowser off the cliff, but rather throw him into the bombs surrounding said cliff.

* In ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'', in your first fight with Agent Smith he's invincible (as you are not yet "The One"), so you need to throw him into the path of a speeding subway car to beat him.

* This is the way to defeat Rhino in pretty much every Spider-Man game where he shows up as a boss. You have to wait until he charges at you and jump out of the way so he crashes into something that harms him.

* Belcha, the first boss of ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble]]'', is a large barrel which must be pushed into a lower portion of the floor at the end of his room. You don't have the leverage or strength to do so, and thus you must feed him beetles that occasionally fall from the ceiling - Belcha's [[MeaningfulName belches]] steadily push him backwards whenever he eats one. Curiously the pit contains no hazards of its own and is no deeper than Belcha is tall. Considering Belcha's lack of mobility, however, the poor chap will never escape his comitragically small ditch.

* The fight against Papes in ''TheLegendaryStarfy'' features this. Papes uses a big shield, so Starfy has to spin at him until he drops out of the pool of water in the middle of the room and hits a spiked wall. Doing this fight two-player allows one character to spin from the front and the other from the back, so it is theoretically possible to beat him without the ring out.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has the first phase of the final battle with [[TheHeavy Ghirahim]]-he creates an aerial arena for you and he to fight on, and as can be imagined, you need to knock him to the ground and spear him through the chest with your Finishing move.
** An earlier case would be Scervo, the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot pirate]] miniboss of the Sandship, who is fought on a narrow gangplank and must be gradually pushed back by your sword attacks until he falls off of it.

Added DiffLines:

** An inversion occurs in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds A Link Between Worlds]]'': the boss of the House of Gales is incapable of damaging ''you'' except by knocking you off of the [[PlatformBattle platform you're standing on]].

* The GR-666 boss in ''VideoGame/{{Broforce}}'' has a lifebar much like other bosses, but bringing it down won't kill the boss -- he'll get back up with a fully refilled bar again. The only way to kill him is to send him over the edge of the map to his doom.
