** 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/MegaManX5'', if you take too long fighting Maverick Zero, he'll pull out his most notorious move: Genmu Zero, a slash that covers the whole screen, kills you on impact, and will be repeated endlessly until it connects. There's no obvious reason he bothers using anything else.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{WarioLand}}'' bosses tend to spend a lot of time invulnerable, so when you get an opening, it's usually this trope at work. Some bosses, including the final bosses of the first and fourth games, even give you throwable objects without which they would be unbeatable.

** In ''DarkSoulsIII'', one of the bosses actually keeps a weapon right in their chamber that turns the fight into a CurbStompBattle in the player's favor. Somewhat of a subversion in that [[spoiler: he actually ''wants'' to be defeated.]]

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar 2'': Subverted in the Zeus battle. First, Zeus is giant and you can't directly attack him. However, he summons sirens that release a deadly shockwave when you kill them, which damages him. The other stage is Zeus shrinking and fighting Kratos straight up. After awhile, Zeus remembers that he's the freakin' king of the gods, and starts bombarding Kratos with an endless stream of lightning. Kratos has to trick him to beat him.

** 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.

* 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.
