* The Android based ''VideoGame/ChaosRings2'' by ''SquareEnix'' does this. After defeating Necron the credits roll and you unlock the ability to replay past chapters taking different routes, but it also turns out there's more story if you keep going on the route you've already taken. Play through that and you'll learn who the real villain has been the whole time and get another credit roll. GenreSavvy folks can sense it coming, both from the story and from the fact the main character doesn't unlock his 3rd and final ultimate attack prior to defeating Necron.

* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} [[VideoGame/PanelDePon Puzzle League]]'', beating the game on any difficulty higher than Hard reveals that Gary wasn't the Puzzle Master. Rather, SelfDemonstrating/{{Mewtwo}} decided to use his psychic powers [[MundaneUtility to be very good at this game]]. And if it's not enough that he's extremely difficult to beat, you only get one shot to do so; if you lose to him, you won't be able to rematch him unless you beat Gary again.

* ''AirForceDelta Strike'' features NAVIGATOR on the final mission for 3rd Element. The only way to get to this boss is by using 3rd Element pilots for almost all of the space-based part of the game.

* ''AceCombatZero'' plays with this. If you've beaten the game enough to unlock the SP Mission "[[BossRush The Gauntlet]]" on the highest difficulty, played that mission on said highest difficulty setting, and defeated [[ThatOneBoss Espada Squadron]] in less than 1 minute during the mission, then the game's penultimate boss Wizard Squadron appears. Do you have to fight them, too? Nope, instead a single F-22 Raptor appears from behind them and utterly slaughters Wizard Squadron in all of about 15 seconds. Then that F-22's pilot sets his sights on you. Good luck with [[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Mobius 1]], Cipher.

A hidden BossBattle in a VideoGame that shows up after the game's usual FinalBoss battle, but only if certain conditions have been met. Regardless of his identity, this is undoubtedly THE [[DifficultySpike strongest, baddest opponent]] you can battle in the game.

A hidden BossBattle in a VideoGame that shows up after (or [[BaitAndSwitchBoss instead of]]) the game's usual FinalBoss battle, but only if certain conditions have been met.met. In terms of the narrative, he could be the regular FinalBoss gone OneWingedAngel, TheManBehindTheMan, a GreaterScopeVillain, TheDragon ([[DragonTheirFeet having arrived late to the party]]), [[TheDogWasTheMastermind some side character nobody thought was important until right this moment]], or (if the game is a fan of MindScrew) a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere. Or maybe the ''regular'' FinalBoss is TheDragon or a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, and the BigBad proper is the TrueFinalBoss. Regardless of his identity, this is undoubtedly THE [[DifficultySpike strongest, baddest opponent]] you can battle in the game.



If a game has MultipleEndings, expect the game's GoldenEnding to be hidden behind this guy, especially if anything less yields only a BittersweetEnding with no real thematic closure to the game's narrative. Outside of that, don't expect any tangible rewards for beating this guy, though.

Contrast PostFinalBoss, which is an easier, post-climax fight that lets you cool down after the real climactic struggle, and BonusBoss, which is an extra-hard secret unlockable boss that has no relevance to the game plot and only gives a BraggingRightsReward for beating it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Darius}}'' has the huge SpaceWhale battleship Great Thing (sometimes called G.T.), which in several games (''Darius Gaiden'', ''G-Darius'', ''Dariusburst'', and ''Dariusburst Another Chronicle'', in particular) is reached only by taking the hardest possible path in any game it appears in. ''Dariusburst'' and ''Another Chronicle'' in particular have it guard the GoldenEnding.

''Dariusburst Another Chronicle EX'' ups the ante with G.T-V., found in Zone Z, the lowest and hardest final stage of the EX stage tree; it is basically Great Thing but {{Palette Swap}}ped to [[PurpleIsPowerful purple]] and significantly harder.
