** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' has a couple. The first being the Abyss Watchers, who are fought as a WolfPackBoss (no pun intended) during the first phase where the player has to kill them all while they fight amongst themselves. Then after that a cutscene plays where a single Watcher absorbs the blood of his brothers, wreathing his sword in flame and becoming more of a proper boss. Later on is the King of Storms, a massive drake with a knight riding on top of it. After the drake is killed the knight steps off of it, absorbs it to gain lightning powers and reveals his true title, the Nameless King, and proves that he is far stronger than when was riding on his dragon mount.

Then there is the FinalBoss [[spoiler: The Soul of Cinder]] who uses a variety of different movesets during his first phase, such as that of a knight, a pyromancer, a sorcerer, and others. Then when he first seems defeated he stands back up [[spoiler: three familiar notes play, and he becomes an improved version of the FinalBoss of the first game, Gwyn, Lord of Cinder]].

*** Ganondorf may count as well, as you fight him first in his human form, then as the monstrous Ganon. However, some consider these two phases separate battles, since there is an escape sequence between them.



* ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series:
** The final boss of ''{{Metroid}} Prime'' has two phases: the first phase is basically the same thing with increasing shifts to different weaknesses, and the second phase requires you to switch visors to locate the phasing Prime and blast it with the Phazon Beam.
** The final boss of ''Metroid Prime 2: Echoes'' features all three forms of the Emperor Ing, followed by a final battle against Dark Samus.
** In ''Metroid Prime 3: Corruption'', you [[spoiler:fight Aurora 313 right after putting down Dark Samus. 313 itself has two forms: complete and floating severed head]].
** Mother Brain from ''Super Metroid'' has 3 different phases. First you fight her like in the first game, as just the brain protected by turrets and zeebetite barriers. After you beat her and examine the body, she rises out of the floor on a robotic body. After dealing enough damage to her, she'll use an extremely powerful attack to reduce you to low health, after which the Metroid hatchling shows up to save the day. But then she comes back to life again and you have to beat the crap out of her again, this time armed with the Hyper Beam. And then you have to escape the planet before it blows up.

* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'s'' example of this trope is [[spoiler:Yami]], who 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.

*** Played for laughs with Armogohma, whose second form (his eye on legs) runs away to a sillier version of the boss music and dies very easily.

** Ganondorf in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is a bit of an exception since there is an escape sequence between his two forms. Twinrova before him, however, is two forms right after each other. Also, Phantom Ganon is first fought as he rides with his stallion and then when he's alone floating.

Phantom Ganon is first fought as he rides with his stallion and through the room's paintings, then when he's alone floating.as he floats around the room by himself.
*** Twinrova begins as a DualBoss, before the two witches fuse into a single entity for the second phase.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has Ornstein and Smough, who are also a DualBoss. When you kill one of them, the other returns to full health and gains different abilities. Smough becomes charged with lightning and gains powerful shockwave attacks, and Ornstein becomes giant and most of his moveset changes.

* ''VideoGame/TheJungleBook'' has the Witch Doctor, a boss that consists of 3 monkeys standing on top of each other, and carrying a large wooden shield. First, you have to fight him while they are working together, walking from left to right and throwing projectiles at you. When that is done, they split up (with each monkey taking a part of the shield with him) and Mowgli has to defeat them each separately.
