* ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' has [[spoiler: True King Allant]]. He's a mutated, frog-like blob who can only flop around and weakly wave his sword at you. [[spoiler: This is because Allant has degenerated from using the soul arts so much and your slaying of the Archdemons, leaving him helpless before you.]]

** Similar to the Iron Golem, the Moonlight Butterfly can be dealt with simply by finding the summon sigil for [[CuteWitch Witch Beatrice]] hidden below its boss arena. While not ''literally'' zero effort, as the Butterfly will still be able to attack you, requiring you to dodge its powerful spells you don't have lift a finger to kill it yourself as Beatrice's devastating magic will blow it out of the sky in short order.

** Perhaps in a nod to the aforementioned Ado and Adeline, the API Security System in ''VideoGame/LorbyPlanetRobobot'' comes after Kirby directly once its holographic constructs have been eliminated, but is so frail that simply touching it is enough to finish it off. It is, however, rather difficult to actually hit, which can make it a serious time-waster in the game's timed modes.

** Adeline in ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards''. As a miniboss, the monsters she summons through her paintings are actually pretty challenging. However, when Adeline finally attacks you herself, any single kind of attack will defeat her. Even just running into her.
** Before her, Ado from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' ends the fight in the same way.

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/NoOneLivesForever'', the player finally comes face to face with Baroness Dumas (basically the Big Bad, though there is another Boss Battle after her). She has no weapon, doesn't move, and is defeated with a couple of shots from the pistol. Of course at the this point she begins to explode (um... don't ask), leading onto the real point of the level which begins with you encountering her, which is to get everyone away from the area before she blows up.

The handful of Mooks that appear afterwards with submachine guns are more dangerous.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' provides the page quote (as of 9/2014) but ''Halo 4'' is worse. The final enemy is beaten through PressXToNotDie; the final "battle" isn't ''easy'' so much as actually, literally ''not there at all.''

* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero3''. After defeating the final boss [[SequentialBoss in his three forms]] a cutscene follows, paralyzes him, and you get to land the final blow with the saber.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', most bosses are of the "ThatOneBoss" variety. The Iron Golem however, can be beaten in two steps. Step 1: Find [[{{Badass}} Black Iron Tarkus]]. Step 2: Enter the boss arena and watch Tarkus solo the boss.

** Ceaseless Discharge is one if you know the trick to him. Immediately after enraging him by looting the Gold Hemmed Black Set, he'll grow a giant arm out of his body. Run all the way back to the fog door and he will leap at you with his arm, which should just barely miss you. At this point he is hanging off the edge of the cliff, holding on for dear life with that arm. Attack the arm about 6 or 7 times with any weapon and he will let go and plummet to his death. However, if you die, you must make it all the way back to where the Gold Hemmed Black Set used to be for him to grow his arm again, with him attacking you the whole time.
** It's possible to kill Capra Demon without even entering the fog door by stocking up on Dung Pies and lobbing them over the wall to inflict Toxic on him. Then all you have to do is stand around and wait for his health to slowly tick down to nothing.
** It's also possible to kill ''the final boss of the DLC'' without entering the fog door, provided you have a bow and a truckload of arrows on you. Aim for his eyes which you can ''just barely'' see glowing in the darkness.
