** ''VideoGame/KirbySuperstar'':
*** The Arena (mini-)game is a BossRush with extremely limited healing.
*** [[VideoGameRemake Superstar Ultra]] had the Arena, as well as introducing a game called Helper to Hero, [[ADayintheLimelight which is basically the Arena, but using the Helpers for each copy power instead of Kirby]].
*** And the True Arena from [[VideoGameRemake Superstar Ultra]], a NintendoHard ten-round BossRush with all of the upgraded "Revenge" bosses from Revenge of the King, as well as [[spoiler:Masked Dedede, Wham-Bam Jewel, Galacta Knight, and the brand-new Marx Soul]] with even less healing than the first Arena.

*** The fourth boss, Ado, summons the Ice Dragon, Sweet Stuff, Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright, and Kracko, right before Ado charges. Ado only takes a slide or exhale to beat, but some of the ''[[VideoGame/KirbysDreamland2 Kirby's Dreamland 2]]'' bosses are rather tough.

** In [[VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland ''Kirby's Return To Dreamland'']], the final boss has three parts to it. [[spoiler:First a Shmup battle with the Lor Starcutter, who uses techniques Kabula, Dark Matter, and Zero used with its own moves. Then, Magolor is fought, who takes his lead mainly from Marx. After that, he goes into a second form that looks like Dark Mind and can use Super Abilities at will. Also, in Extra Mode, the Metal General becomes one of these, summoning Dedede's Humongous Mecha HR-D3 after he's defeated and piloting it. HR-D3 itself has two forms.]]

** ''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]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' bosses always have multiple life bars, one for each bullet pattern they shoot. Early bosses usually have at most 4, whereas final bosses have many: Kaguya Houraisan from the eighth game, for example, has 10 life bars on every difficulty, plus five optional [[DesperationAttack Last Spells]] after that.

*** 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.
