** The No Mercy final boss, [[spoiler:Sans]], is one of the biggest challenges ever to be conceived in an RPG. [[spoiler:Among the '''many''' dirty tricks he pulls, he takes the first turn, dodges your attacks, starts attacking you when it's your turn, and eventually does nothing on his turn so you can't start yours.]] The only way to defeat him is [[spoiler:to cheat as well and move the bullet box over to the FIGHT button.]]

** The neutral route's battle against [[spoiler:Photoshop Flowey]] has the player alternating between trying ([[ThatOneBoss and most likely failing]]) to avoid everything [[spoiler:Flowey]] has at his immediate disposal and [[spoiler:reaching out to the six Human SOULs]]. After [[spoiler:the SOULs]] begin to help you, it's a matter of avoiding [[spoiler:Flowey's]] desperate attempts to kill you while slowly whittling him down.

* The final boss of any route in ''VideoGame/Undertale'' plays with this quite a bit, more than we've seen in a decade or so:

** The True Pacifist final boss, [[spoiler:the newly-ressurected and newly-superpowered Asriel]], starts with avoiding all his newfound capabilities until [[spoiler:he reveals the Ultimate God of Hyperdeath form]]. Interestingly enough, he only uses ''one'' attack in this second form, but you'll find it balances out when [[spoiler:you have to SAVE your friends from his grasp]]. And despite all of that, the battle's easier than it sounds since [[spoiler:you automatically revive every time you die.]]

* Essentially every ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' game, from the first game up to ''MegaManZX'', has had this type of final boss.

* The final boss of ''Videogame/YuGiOhGxSpiritCaller'' must be fought three times, with him using a different deck for each. You ''can'' leave to do other things between each fight though.

This trope is VERY common with {{Final Boss}}es. The number of stages will often be [[RuleOfThree three]].

*''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has quite a few. There's handful among the normal bosses (The Four Horsemen, The Haunt, Brownie, ect), but the majority are the various "final" bosses.
**[[spoiler:Satan]] was the original sequential boss, as well as the original TrueFinalBoss of the game. His first phase is a fight against [[DegradedBoss The Fallen]], after which he would reveal himself. After his first form is defeated, he flies up and tries to stomp you and you have to attack his legs.
**[[spoiler:Isaac]], added in ''Wrath of the Lamb'', is one as well. His first phase has him crying on the floor. At about 75% health, he stands up and gains a new attack pattern. At 50%, he grows wings and the ability to teleport, as well as another new attack set.
**[[spoiler:???]] is the boss that follows [[spoiler:Isaac]], and has the same three phases as him, albeit with different attacks.
**[[spoiler:Mega Satan]] from ''Rebirth'' is probably the largest example. After his first form is defeated, he sends waves of [[DegradedBoss bosses]] to fight you. After clearing each wave, you repeat the first phase again before finishing with his hyper-powered OneWingedAngel mode. If you count each boss wave as a separate phase, he has ''seven'' phases in total.
**[[spoiler:Hush]], the BonusBoss from ''Afterbirth'' also counts. His first phase is a palette-swapped [[spoiler:???]], but defeating that reveals his [[BodyHorror true form]].
**As of ''Afterbirth+'', Ultra Greed is this in Greedier Mode. [[spoiler:When his first form is destroyed, the gold statue he normally leaves behind [[NotQuiteDead comes alive and fights you]]]].
