* In ''VideoGame/{{Hellsinker}}'', the boss of Segment 2 Lead, the Scarlet Queen, has a hidden form if you defeat her with high enough [[DynamicDifficulty Stella]]. The good news: it's only 15 seconds long. The bad news: It's particularly brutal.

The bad news: It's particularly brutal.It spits out very fast and dense patterns that will probably cost you a life (offsetting the OneUp you'll get for killing it) unless you bomb through it.

* The Four Kings in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' are best fought by doing as much damage as quickly as possible because you start fighting one but a new one enters the arena every minute until you've done enough damage to them together, [[UnstableEquilibrium making it harder to fight the ones that are already there without dying]]. In practice, they're either a RushBoss or ''very'' difficulty WolfpackBoss. They're often consider the hardest boss in the game simply because this is ''so'' different from the rest of the game, which encourages you to fight slowly and methodically.

* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', the final ranked fight, [[spoiler:Jeane]]. They're the ''last'' boss of the game [[spoiler:save for TrueFinalBoss Henry]], but they have the lowest health of any conventional boss in the game. Of course, given that they dodge virtually everything you throw at them, FlashStep like it's not even a thing, hit like a tank, and can even [[spoiler:counter your wrestling moves with their own]], they'll make you work for every sliver of damage you get on them.

* In ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'', the final fight with [[EvilOverlord Lord Brevon]], once you've [[SequentialBoss destroyed his starfighter and combat mech]]. His machete ([[ThatOneAttack which comes out with little warning]]) will take out a massive chunk of your HP, he leads the player with his laser pistol to make dodging that much harder, he moves fast enough to keep [[SuperSpeed Lilac]] on her toes, and he can even counter some of your attacks, but it doesn't take that many hits to put him down if you can survive his onslaught.

** In ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', there are several cards that will end up having your hero replaced by a whole new hero that are basically having low Hit Points, but has their way to dish out massive damages just as quick. Killing Majordomo Executus will replace your hero with Ragnaros the Firelord, capable of dealing 8 damage to a random enemy for his hero spell... but only has 8 HP. Playing the Jaraxxus card replaces your hero with the aforementioned '''EREDAR LORD OF THE BURNING LEGION!!''' who has 15 HP, but possesses a 3/8 Weapon and his heroic ability lets you summon a 6/6 creature for 2 mana every turn.

* Both final bosses of ''AlphaProtocol''. One uses a series of deadly miniguns but has horrible damage resistance, while the other uses a rocket launcher but can be defeated in a single punch (although getting close enough to do so can be a problem).

* ''BushidoBlade'': The game's intent of realistic combat (i.e: no [[LifeMeter lifebars]]) effectively means that ''any'' battle can end in just [[OneHitKill one clean strike]] against your opponent.

* The duel with Luca Blight in ''SuikodenII''. Thanks to the prior SequentialBoss fight, he only has a sliver of health left, but he's still strong enough to kill you in two attacks.
* Many of the DPS Race raid bosses in WorldOfWarcraft have enrage timers that are notably shorter than bosses who are more of a battle of survival (typically 5 or 6 minutes, compared to standard 9-10 minute enrage timers), and the greatest danger is most often killing them before the timer expires and they start one-shotting the raiders.

* Most of the key bosses in ''[[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Diablo II]]'' are marathon bosses (including all the Act Bosses except possibly Andarial, who's a bit of a half-way house), but the mid-act boss in Act 2, The Summoner, is a classic Rush Boss. He's extremely fragile, going down in two or three hits, but depending on your build he can easily OneHitKill ''you'', at least on Normal difficulty. He also has fantastic range (well over your character's sight range), meaning new players often die to him before they even see him.

* Jubei Yagyu in ''{{Onimusha}} Dawn of Dreams'' can unleash several quick and damaging swordslashes in a row, which is quite bad for your health. However, with a good defense timing you can pull an easy Issen counterattack and finish her off in two or three attacks.
