* Averted in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. You'd think Ursula, who ''does'' occasionally use TypicalTentacleTactics in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', would use them here; but you only fight her when she's giant size so you just swim around keyblading her in the face.
** Played straight in Re:Chain of Memories, where she uses her tentacles to smack you around the stage before coming close enough that you can attack her face.

* In ''VideoGame/SonicRush Adventure'', you fight the Ghost Kraken on a ring-shaped platform, with it in the center. It likes to spit ink [[InterfaceScrew at the camera]] and restrict you to a fourth of the platform with two tentacles while it sweeps the ground with the others, [[TacticalSuicideBoss including the one that has its weak point.]]

* The Forgotten One boss in ''[[{{Warcraft}} Frozen Throne]]'' attacks by spawning tentacles from the ground. Since they have melee range, they end up next your units, so you end up literally Surrounded By Tentacles while the boss spits fire at you.
* [[spoiler:Zurvan]] in HeartOfTheSwarm fights at the center of a semicircular arena, sending his tentacles to crash down on you two at a time. However, you benefit from CrosshairAware, making this one of the easier bossfights.

* The Tentacle bosses in ''{{Final Fantasy VI}}'' aren't quite this trope as its described, but at the same time the battlefield is your characters standing on the tentacles as well as fighting them.

All giant octopuses in videogames fight the same way. They will face you in the center of a circular arena, use two of the CombatTentacles to restrict you to a small portion of the arena, whip with other tentacles, and have a spit projectile (often some kind of blinding ink). Needs not be an octopus, but does need to be similar.
