Added DiffLines:

* Pin and Scolex in ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' are worm-like creatures that pop out of the ground in a random spot, arc through the air, and burrow back into the ground. They make a beeline for the player's last known location when they land, making them {{Bullfight Boss}}es in a way.
* The giant snake Jormungandr in ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' behaves similarly, but has no predictable pattern. If anything, he has a habit of popping up directly under one of the players.

* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' features monsters like this in the "Crater" area. But it isn't enough to whack them over the head--you have to stun them to expose their [[ForMassiveDamage weak point]] first.

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' games:
** One of the Mini-games in ''Babs' Big Break'' for the Game Boy involves your character hitting as many Montana Max and Roderick Rat targets as they can within the time limit. Each character wears different attire and whacks with a different object; Buster is dressed as Biff Vanderbunny and whacks with a cane, Plucky is dressed like a superhero and whacks with a hammer, and Hamton is dressed in his normal attire and whacks with a frying pan.
** Acme All-Stars has a Montana Mash mini-game as well. You get points for every Montana Max target you hit, and lose points for every Elmyra Duff and Dizzy Devil target you hit. Look out for Gogo Dodo, who tosses bombs. Getting hit by one of his bombs will stun you for a few seconds.
* ''VideoGame/GarfieldCaughtInTheAct'' has a mini-game like this if you find the hammer. The game has six holes and thus requires the six-button Genesis controller to play. You must hit every target except the one shown at the beginning in order to win a continue.
