** [[spoiler:the TrueFinalBoss is a Zero-Effort Boss, on either route. The "Pacifist" route has your character using their HeroicWillpower to bring themselves back. While your HP can be reduced to 0, you ultimately can't lose. The "Genocide" path turns Asgore, normally a ClimaxBoss, into a PostFinalBoss by your character taking him out in one hit.]]

** Before her, Ado from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' ends the fight in the same way, but has only a single notch of health to indicate that he's a pushover.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}'', one would expect Umber, one of the four Guardians (in this case, of the Sanctuary of Stone and Fire), to put up a fight. Instead, he simply waits for Rayman to take up residence on his head and then walks along the lava corridor and eventually is submerged completely, but not before enabling Rayman to jump off onto the platform bearing the mask Umber is supposed to protect. Umber explains this in ''[[UpdatedRerelease Revolution]]'': Ly contacted Umber, telling him about Rayman and his efforts to defeat Razorbeard. He knew Rayman was the chosen one without a doubt, and willingly gave him passage to the mask, where Rayman then met Razorbeard's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot pirates]] waiting to ambush him.

* [[ButtMonkey Glass Joe]] from the ''PunchOut'' series. The very first character you fight in most games, he is so easy to beat that a bonus challenge in the Wii version is ''losing'' to him. This is remarkably harder.

* In ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D'', the first 2 games of the Tournament mode are nearly impossible to lose because the pitchers only throw you slow fastballs to the center of the strike zone. Anyone can catch up, even if they have never played a baseball game. Even if you hit an easy catchable fly ball, the fielders will almost always make an error, saving you from an out and getting you someone on base.

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

* 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.''

to:

*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.
