* The PostFinalBoss of ''BatenKaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean'' offers no resistance whatsoever. Despite having a mountain of HP, his attacks are weaker than most of the mooks you've been facing for the past hour. [[spoiler:Granted, having the DiscOneFinalBoss' head suddenly rise from the earth and challenge the party to a battle]] was the ''last'' thing any sane player expected at that point, and it does provide for an interesting bit of story near the end.

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' provides the page quote (as of 5/2016) 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.''

*Nemeroth of Warhammer 40000 Space Marine is one of these. You spend several minutes killing cannon fodder demons while Nemeroth transforms into a Daemon Prince. Instead of actually fighting him however, you tackle him off the tower and... QTE him to death. It's not even hard, or even failable as far as I know. Even a chimpanzee could beat this boss as long as it keeps hitting buttons.

** Perhaps in a nod to the aforementioned Ado and Adeline, the API Security System in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' 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.

* ''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.

** 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.

However, when Adeline finally attacks you herself, any single kind of challenging, and once they're defeated, she'll attack will defeat her. Even just running Kirby herself. The fact that she gets a full health bar like her creations might deceive one into her.
thinking she'll actually put up a fight, but simply bumping into her is enough to do her in immediately.
** Before her, Ado from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' ends the fight in the same way.way, but has only a single notch of health to indicate that he's a pushover.
