* One minigame in ''VideoGame/ShmupsSkillTest'' has you destroying a boss named Larilari. You either kill it in about a second with sufficiently fast ButtonMashing, get crushed from not firing fast enough or as a penalty for shooting before the core turns red, or [[WhatAnIdiot ram into it]].

* Sigma from ''VideoGame/MegaManX3'' is a brutally difficult and overwhelming fight, but once you have your timing down you can defeat both of his phases with only three shots by fully charging the upgraded X Buster.

* The FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}}'', [[spoiler:a trio of Avatars]], will keep summoning reinforcements. You have to kill them fast lest your troops get buried under mooks.

Added DiffLines:

* Classic bump-attack games in the ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series (namely, ''I'', ''II'', and ''IV'') due to [[CollisionDamage the way it works]] bosses and even simple enemies can rip you a new one just as fast as you can them. Take for instance, ''the very first foe'' you see in ''I'', which will kill you in seconds flat if you don't know what you're doing. Later games switch to a more traditional ActionRPG style of combat, so they don't count as much, with even ''Ys 7'' boasting some borderline Marathon Bosses.

MarathonBoss is this trope's inverse. See also BossVulnerability; these are usually type 1s.

* TableTopGames/{{Pathfinder}} and TableTopGames/DungeonsAndDragons before 4th edition were all about this trope for ''most'' [[BossBattle boss battles]]. The climactic fight in a dungeon would often be able to lay down enough damage to break a party in a few rounds and may have incredibly powerful debuffs or OneHitKO powers. Players would immediately realize the situation had crossed the GodzillaThreshold and pour forth all of their most potent, limited-use items. Additionally, the boss would be targeted by every one of the StandardStatusEffects since there was no UselessUsefulSpell. Fourth Edition ''TableTopGames/DungeonsAndDragons'' goes for MarathonBoss more often.

Added DiffLines:

* Rapid-Fire Magician, one of the AI opponents in ''YuGiOh Ultimate Masters'', must be challenged under the conditions where both players begin with 2000 LifePoints (as opposed to the standard 8000). Under this condition, it can be defeated easily if you and a couple of direct attacks, but this opponent is also designed to take advantage of the situation and runs a burn deck which can deplete your own Life Points in a couple of turns. It can boil down to a LuckBasedMission to not get defeated in a blink of an eye.
