** [[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.

* In {{Onimusha}}: Dawn of Dreams, [[spoiler:Fortinbras]] appears in giant snake monster form and Soki has to fight him in full on Black Oni mode. Normally, this would be the end of it, [[spoiler:until Fortinbras reveals he was just messing with you to get rid of Soki's ace in his sleeve, appearing in human form for the real final battle against the entire cast, which is way harder.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}} [=ReBirth=]''[='=]s Stage 4 boss starts off as the Stage 1 boss with seemingly no difference. Once you destroy all the barriers guarding its [[ForMassiveDamage core]], it zooms forward, flies into the background, flips to show its other side, comes back around, regenerates its core barriers, and proceeds to fight you again, this time with more [[BeamSpam lasers]] and a nasty attack in which it fires two containment lasers and sweeps the screen vertically.

** And on Mythic mode for Highmaul, just when you've defeated Imperator Mar'gok, an alterate-universe version of Cho'gall shows up, kills Mar'gok, and attacks the party.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' has a tiny version of the boss Kraid in the room before you fight the real, two-TV-screens-tall Kraid. This is both an "easy" Trick Boss and a {{Homage}} to the original Kraid from the first ''VideoGame/{{Metroid| 1}}'' game. Also, since (like real bosses, though not as much) he [[SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity dumps large amounts of health and ammo when he dies]], the fake Kraid also serves to replenish your strength for the real thing.
** Similarly, there's a fake Kraid wandering around the lower sections of Kraid's Hideout in the original ''Metroid''. He can be taken out with a mere single missile and has a different palette, but otherwise looks the same as the real deal.
