* ''DragonQyestVI'' has a SecretEnding where defeating the BonusBoss within a set number of turns results in him not only acknowledging your superiority, but also unleashing a complete and utter CurbStomp on the FinalBoss, laughing all the while. Of course, if you're leveled to the point where you can beat him that fast, said FinalBoss isn't exactly difficult either.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' has [[spoiler:Phantom]], a BonusBoss who also [[BarrierChangeBoss shifts what he is vulnerable to around]].

to:

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' has [[spoiler:Phantom]], a BonusBoss who also [[BarrierChangeBoss shifts what he is vulnerable to around]]. In a subversion of the trope, you fight him in front of the clock tower which ticks down the counter towards removing your characters from the fight. The counter seems impossibly fast, until you realise [[spoiler:you can target the clock hand itself and you have a spell that stops time.]]

* [[spoiler:Remi]] from ''VideoGame/FarawayStory'' manages to combine this with MarathonBoss. She has quadruple digit magic resistance and decently high physical defense, in addition to abilities like reflecting 25% of physical attacks, regeneration, and a SuperMode that increases her defenses further. The player characters are in a hurry, so they establish a time limit of 10 minutes to beat her before resorting to a backup plan.

** Like Nightmare above, Dark Matter's final form in ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'' is fought on an AutoScrollingLevel, and when it reaches the bottom, it gains a new, unblockable, undodgeable attack that comes out instantly and deals 2 (out of 6) damage. You need to finish it off before it attacks again.

Sometimes your greatest foe is not the GiantEnemyCrab standing in front of you -- its the countdown right above his head.

* ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' typically gives it's Raid bosses special "enrage timers", forcing players to kill them before they activated. The first one would constantly summon [[DemonicSpiders Praetorians]] to attack the players when the Enrage timer activated, while the second one would constantly spam the Oversoul, which would quickly result in a TotalPartyKill. To make matters worse, the latter was preceded by an FlunkyBoss whose [[BrownNote Liturgy of Death]] would do the same thing.

* In the Super NES game ''ThePeaceKeepers'', during the boat stage (The Crazy Horse), you have 60 seconds to destroy the white Orbot. If you don't defeat him in time, then he will sink the ship and escape.

* In ''{{Neopets}}: The Darkest Faerie'', you only have three minutes to defeat the titular final boss. This is not helped by the fact you must first break her shield.

**Golemech on the "Easy" Venom route also counts, as if you take too long to defeat him, you'll hit a dead end and continously ram into pillars until you're out of energy and die.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' has each of the Fiend battles in [[BrutalBonusLevel Twisted Tokyo]]. You have ten turns to beat the target before you're taken out of the dungeon automatically. Fortunately, this does not result in a GameOver, and any damage you dealt will carry over to the next encounter with them.
