** Molgera from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' sticks its tongue out and then just sits there. As well, if you run out of bombs or arrows, both of which are required to defeat it, it will gladly spit out some for you. However, this is intentional, as the boss is a test of skill for the Hero.

** Gohdan from
the boss same game will also gladly sneeze out bombs and arrows, should you happen to run out of either. In his case, however, it's justified as Gohdan is a meant to test of skill for the Hero.Link's ''skill'', not however much ammo he has.

Added DiffLines:

* Apollo Creed in the second ''[[Film/RockyII Rocky]]'' movie. By the final round, both he and Rocky are exhausted, and Apollo has won every round except one. All he had to do was fight defensively and he would have won by decision. Instead, he goes for a knockout victory, a strategy that ultimately costs him the match and his championship.

* ''Videogame/KingdomHeartsI'': A variation; in your first boss battle with [[Disney/((Aladdin)) Jafar]], Jafar forces Genie to attack Sora and his party. Genie's attacks are weak (and usually preceded by Genie saying, "I'm sorry, Al!" or "Get out of the way!") and also frequently produce health points for your party to collect, thus replenishing health as needed.

* ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'': With shields that are too thick to break through and you only controlling one [[spoiler: Platinum Robo]], the FinalBoss [[spoiler: Jergingha]] might've been completely invincible... [[spoiler: if one of his attacks didn't involve shooting out other robots that your team can hijack and use to form the giant Unite Morphs needed to break through the shields]].

** The fight against [[spoiler:Genocide Jack]] [[JustifiedTrope justifies]] this. They need to periodically recharge, which also leaves them open to attack. After the fight, the protagonist realizes they could have just killed her much faster, but they gave her a chance.

Added DiffLines:

**Overall, most of the Boss fights in AA and AC consist of throwing Gadget X at villain and evading their attacks.


Added DiffLines:

**In Arkham Knight, the titular Arkham Knight has serious problems noticing patterns.
***[[spoiler:When Batman fights his tank, he needs to destroy the 4 coolant reserves located outside the tank, while Knight uses a slow 360 degree check to look around. While Batman will be forced to flee after destroying one, the Knight could just guard the last remaining weak point, but he still keeps on looking around him, allowing Batman to destroy the last one.]]
***[[spoiler:In the second fight, he chases the Batmobile to tunnels which are filled with explosives, heavily damaging his excavator in progress. This happens 4 times.]]
***[[spoiler:And finally, he fails to realize that Batman is attacking from directly below his vantage points; He seems to check there every now and then, but he does control a drone, which he could just position to guard the area below the vantage point.]]

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Pete would have a much easier time escaping on his steamboat if he had the sense to stop throwing garbage for you to CatchAndReturn.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': At one point in Timeless River, Pete has the Cornerstone of Light and is riding away in Steamboat Willie. He would have a much easier time escaping on his steamboat gotten away if he had didn't decide to attack Sora with garbage, letting him fling it back to stun Pete and free the sense to stop throwing garbage for you to CatchAndReturn.Cornerstone.

* Two of the {{Bonus Boss}}es in the flash RPG ''VideoGame/{{Sonny}}'' do this. Omen has a move that makes both his next attack and yours much more deadly; if you already have a shield in place, you can hit him ForMassiveDamage while absorbing his attack. Dr. Herregods is even more egregious; he has [[OverNineThousand one million hit points]], and once you've knocked off a thousand or so he will heal himself for ''two million'' hit points. [[spoiler: Too bad you have a move that reverses damage and healing.]]
