*''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]]]].

* ''VideoGame/RefleX'' has [[ClimaxBoss ZODIAC Virgo]], who has 5 phases. First phase is the introduction, before spreading its wings, destroying Human Virgo and initiating the next phase. After that it becomes a HopelessBossFight as it [[CurbStompBattle lays the beam smackdown on the Phoenix]], [[TheHeroDies killing the pilot]]. But then the Phoenix, [[MeaningfulName true to name]], springs back to life and returns the curbstomping tenfold, with you chasing Virgo as it flees, but fails as you destroy its thrusters forcing it to stand its ground. The final phase is you going to town on this mechanical menace, effortlessly blocking its [[WaveMotionGun screen-filling lasers]] and [[BulletHell a crapton of projectiles]] before finally destroying it.

* Particularly annoying in ''RedFaction 2''. The final boss is your SuperSoldier commander piloting a MiniMecha. The mecha has an insane amount of health but its weapons are only of average power. After you blow it up, the boss jumps out to fight you on foot. The annoying part is that he fights with a one-hit-kill railgun, so if he manages to shoot you just once, you die and have to restart the level and fight the mech suit all over again (including sitting through the unskippable pre-boss cutscene).

* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'s'' example of this trope is [[spoiler:Yami]], whom you fight five times, all the while [[spoiler: regaining your Celestial Brush techniques, which Yami zapped out of Amaterasu at the start of the fight.]] It has to be mentioned though, that [[spoiler:Yami's first four forms aren't that different, being a different variety of ball each time.]] When you face him in [[spoiler:[[CapcomVsWhatever Tatsunoko Vs Capcom]]]], he does the same thing, but with only three forms.

* Present in all of the ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' games:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOjZXM1IYEM LittleBigPlanet 1]] [[labelnote:The Boss]]The battle is against the Collector's mechs. The first mech moves back and forth above the area before slamming down and trying to kill Sackboy with the spikes it has on the bottom. There is a Creature Brain on each side that the player has to hit when the boss slams down. After hitting both of the brains, the boss creates two more, and begins shooting electricity when it's above the battlefield. After destroying those brains, the first mech is killed. The platform Sackboy is on goes up to a second mech. This one tries to squish Sackboy with his fists and spawns enemies that sweep an electric bar above them. After killing those enemies, he will resume punching. There are two Creature Brains on both sides of both fists. After hitting those brains, the fists open to reveal two more Brains. Sackboy must hit those when the fists slam down. After doing that, the fists break apart and the mech loses them. He now moves back and forth and shoots electricity to the sides. After doing this for a moment, he jumps up and slams down, causing electric blocks to fall down from the ceiling. He has 7 Brains. 2 can be hit when the mech is moving back and forth, two can be hit when the mech compresses and stays still, and 3 require a block that falls down after the boss slams down. After hitting all of the brains, the second mech is defeated and the battle is over.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWgk_JO5EwA&t=9m32s LittleBigPlanet 2]] [[labelnote:The Boss]]This battle is against the Negativitron. At first, you are using the Hamstertron 2000 in a half-pipe area, avoiding the Negativitron's lasers and hitting the brains that spawn on top of his head. After hitting 5 brains, the Negativitron retreats through the ceiling and a path opens to the next segment. Upon entering the path, your Hamstertron self-destructs and you fall onto a platform with Bounce Pads and a Grappling Hook. The Negativitron bursts in from the left wall and begins sucking platforms from the right side of the screen into his mouth. The platforms have sponge on the bottom and Bounce Pads on the top, and you have to survive until Higginbotham shoots a missile into the Negativitron's mouth, at which point it closes and a brain on top of his head can be hit. After hitting four brains, the Negativitron retreats through the wall he burst in through, and two paths on the ground (leading to the same area) open. Upon entering the path, your Grappling Hook is replaced with a set of Grabinators, and the Negativitron bursts through the ceiling. He fires lasers in a pattern that increases in speed each time you hit him, before eventually trying to crush you with his face. While he does, either Da Vinci or Victoria will give you a cake to throw at his brain, and after hitting four more brains, you're warped to a place with a single brain on a piece of jelly floating in the air. Upon popping this brain, the Negativitron is defeated.[[/labelnote]]

** ''Gradius V'' has Keeper's Core, a gunwall that makes artificial gravity sliders that slides players off from center as well as having three plasma ball-spraying turrets. Its second form launches the wall cannons that fire laser barricades to block the player from passing.

* Medusa is this in KidIcarusUprising. She fights you normally, then gets chained in place, and her head comes off and flies around, attacking you. Then, [[spoiler:in chapter 25, Hades fights you in the Underworld, then several times in hyperspace or something using his "Battle Ensemble," then he fights you [=AGAIN=] on the surface, and then you have one last minigame-ish thing before you beat the game.]]
