* In the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis version of ''GoldenAxe'', Death Adder is hyped up to be the BigBad, until you defeat him and realize he's been taking orders, and that you have one more level to go through. The true last boss turned out to be a [[PaletteSwap recolor]] named Death Bringer.

* In the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis game ''ShiningForce'' almost every boss you fight, no matter how big of a bastard they were, turns out to have been innocent and only under the control of the real BigBad, Darksol. It's really kind of irritating to have worked so hard to defeat someone only to have them go "What have I done? Forgive me, I was only under the control of Darksol, I'm actually good." before they die. Yeah, and we're supposed to forgive you after you killed more than half of the Shining Force?

* Grodus, the main bad guy in ''PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', tries to rule the world by reviving the Shadow Queen, who is an evil spirit sealed away for 1000 years. When Grodus summons her, she turns on him and defeats him with one measly attack before turning her attention to Mario. It turns out that GoldfishPoopGang were her lackeys and manipulating the events... or rather the gang's leader was, since of the other two one is a moron and the other pulls a HeelFaceTurn. You'd wonder why the latter never mentions this to her new friends, but then again it really didn't make much difference to the party who, exactly, was trying to rule the world.

* ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' did this every season. In fact, in both seasons, we had a DoubleSubversion of this trope. Season one had Gaito (Gakuto and Gackto in the manga), who was working for Sara, who did a HeelFaceTurn, leaving Gaito as a worse BigBad than Sara was. Season two had Michel's sidekick Fuku appear to be above him but below "That Man", but in the end, That Man was also manipulated by Fuku.
