[[DownTheDrain Water]] [[UnderTheSea based]] [[SharkTunnel levels]] in games have an odd reputation. They can be seen as the greatest thing ever, if handled well enough, or the [[ThatOneLevel worst possible]] section(s) of a game. But in these levels, assuming the game itself generally has boss fights at all, the inclusion of water in the arena can radically change a boss battle and how it plays out. If handled well, it can easily be a clear example of the best boss in the game. It can also be seen as ThatOneBoss in the opposite scenario. Nevertheless, underwater boss battles (or generally water based battles in general) have a LOT of different possible designs, and as can be seen via the examples below, have been a standard change to the traditional BossBattle formula since the beginning of gaming in general.

The entire arena is underwater, and the boss (as you can probably figure out) is an aquatic creature that cannot survive on land. Usually not one of the more favoured battles by players, as the changed controls underwater may make the battle quite a bit tougher than it needs to be. Common types of enemies for this are usually sharks, eels, various forms of octopus, etc.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter Tri'' and ''3 Ultimate'' have a number of bosses that call water their home, including the Lagiacrus, the Royal Ludroth, and the Gobul. In addition, the Plesioth, which can go underwater in previous-generation games that do not permit the player to dive into the water, can now be fought underwater. The Ceadeus and the Abyssal Lagiacrus, on the other hand, are fought in an entirely-underwater area with a one-way entrance. Fortunately, your OxygenMeter is quite generous and can be refilled or extended in many different ways, or [[SuperNotDrowningSkills outright rendered a non-issue]].
