* In ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac: Afterbirth'', the battle with the DLC's BonusBoss, [[spoiler:Hush]], is set up like this. You first have to fight a boss that acts and fights in every way like [[spoiler:the Blue Baby from the Chest]]. But upon taking this boss apart, the gigantic true boss emerges and "Chorus Mortis" starts up, setting the stage for one of the most BulletHell-tastic battles of the entire game.

A different form of Trick Boss is the type that's actually a challenge... but is a Trick Boss by story definition, as the real boss just wanted to sap your power.

* ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' has you fight Bowser in the final level, who's suspiciously easy for being the so called 'final boss', attacking just like he did in the NES days (Bowser bridge, that sort of thing). Until you realize that [[spoiler:Peach is really Kamek in a PaperThinDisguise, Kamek sprinkles some magic spell on Bowser, and in a just like ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' way, Bowser becomes about fifty feet tall and starts chasing you through the castle in a climactic escape sequence]]. ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros2'' is very similar in that regard, except [[spoiler:this time, the giant Bowser is a BackgroundBoss]].

* Balzack in the fourth chapter of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV''. He uses powerful magic, but is easily neutralized with the Sphere of Silence. In the PlayStation and NintendoDS remakes of the game, [[MusicalSpoiler he doesn't get the standard "boss music" treatment]]... [[spoiler:his boss, Marquis de Leon]], ''does'', and [[HopelessBossFight your party has no shot of beating him at their current level]].

** In the original VideoGame/PaperMario, before you battle The Koopa Bros., you have to battle them in a very unconvincing Bowser mecha.

* ''[[{{VideoGame/Zuma}} Zuma's Revenge!]]'' has this with the final boss.

* ''[[{{VideoGame/Zuma}} Zuma's Revenge!]]'' has this with the final boss. He has 10 or so hearts, and hitting him takes them all away and begins rolling the credits in a rather [[StylisticSuck bland]] manner. Then they get interrupted by the ''real'' final boss. Turns out, the guy you just "fought" was only his chef.

** [[CaptainAmerica Red Skull]] is ridiculously easy to deal with, but once you deplete his lifebar, "he" turns into a huge robot with a vast array of attacks that battles you while the real Red Skull watches cackling in the safety of an impervious [[spoiler:(until the beaten robot falls onto it)]] glass dome.

* The second-to-last Soviet mission in ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert3''. In the first part of the mission, you are supposed to backstab the Allies' forces coming to the peace conference, which is, by all means, suspiciously easy for a late game mission. After you wiped out the Allies, however... [[spoiler:Cherdenko decided that YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness and wished to get rid of you because [[HeKnowsTooMuch you knew too much]].]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'': One of the very first missions has you don a PoweredArmor and wield a [[GatlingGood Minigun]] to take down a bunch of raiders, including their leader Gristle. Gristle is stronger than the raiders, but he can't hurt you much thanks to your armor and falls quickly. Shortly after that, a [[LightningBruiser much stronger, faster and tougher]] Deathclaw pops out of the ground and serves as the actual boss.
