* In ''VideoGame/{{XenobladeChronicles2}} '' when you go to fight Malos and Jin at the Cliffs of Morytha about halfway through the fight you gain a Super mode which massively increases your attack and as long as you are in it you cannot be lowered below 1 health making it impossible to lose and unlike the rest of the game it doesn't have a time limit for this one fight

* Raging Bird God, the first MiniBoss of [[spoiler:Futaba's]] Palace in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' has access to attacks much stronger than what player usually has at this point and is able to brainwash player's party. The catch? He is weak to gunfire which means up to four All-Out Attacks per turn. This battle also has maximum two regular shadow encounters before it meaning the team is unlikely to be low on health, SP or ammo. Therefore, it is hard to lose unless you bring Ryuji along or equip a Persona that is weak to wind.

* In ''EternalCardGame'', a TradingCardGame that sits halfway between ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' and ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', the final boss of the "Dead Reckoning" campaign is literally impossible to not defeat. You take your turn first, he has suffered HPToOne, you have two separate ways of dealing 3 damage to him, and the game does not let you pass your turn without using one of them. (You can Concede the match voluntarily, but that just means you have to try the "fight" again later.)

* How to defeat Dracula as Richter Belmont in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'': Take the Holy Water that you can find right outside his room, and do an Item Crash. It hits the whole screen and does insane damage at very little cost, such that it'll most likely kill him the moment he's done transforming. Even if you haven't picked up the Holy Water or didn't read the manual, he'd still have to work out to be called a WarmUpBoss; he doesn't do much damage and he's a gigantic target. The Holy Water Item Crash is such a broken starting move that it's a major reason "Richter Mode" is considered to have HardLevelsEasyBosses.

** Toriel's fight is very difficult to lose, as her attacks will start actively avoiding you if your health is low. The real challenge of her fight is not beating her, but beating her in a way that won't get you guilt-tripped by the game.

* ''Videogame/KingdomHeartsI'' has Rock Titan, the final boss of the Hades Cup. All of his attacks are highly telegraphed, do little damage compared to previous bosses, and are easily avoided simply by moving away from him. This is especially jarring considering what you have to do to reach him. To even fight him you have to go through forty-nine other rounds and four other bosses: Behemoth and Cerberus with their [[CameraScrew large size]], persistent attacks, and [[AttackItsWeakpoint awkward hurtboxes]], A tagteam of Cloud and [[DoNotCallMePaul "Leon"]], [[LightningBruiser who are fast, hit hard, and barely give you a moment to breath]], and [[PhysicalGod Hades]] himself, with his massive health pool, ridiculous damage, and [[ThatOneAttack screen-filling fire streams]]. While Rock Titan shares Behemoth and Cerberus' large size, unlike them, you can easily [[AgonyOfTheFeet attack his feet]] to knock him down, rendering him defenseless while you wittle down his health until he gets back up... or just climb up to his heads to deal even more damage. Even more baffling is the fact that you get a one-exp "tech" bonus just for hitting him. You will be hitting him ''a lot''.

* The ''VideoGame/AladdinCapcom'' game features a pyramid level. The boss of this level is Abu wearing an Egyptian mask. It's impossible to lose this fight; one jump onto Abu's mask, and the boss fight ends. Abu can't even damage Aladdin, and there's no time limit. Abu will just wander back and forth until you run out of patience and jump on him.

** After beating The Boss, Snake and EVA head off in their plane...only to be accosted by [[spoiler:Ocelot]] demanding one last pistol duel. No matter what you do in this "fight", the end result is the same - no one gets shot, and Snake and his foe separate on relatively good terms.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', after the epic OneWingedAngel battle against Safer Sephiroth, (with [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic kickass music]]) there's one more fight against him in the Lifestream. He is impossible to lose against -- the only attack you can do is the LimitBreak Omnislash, which kills him in one hit, he can't do enough damage to kill you because his attack is percentage-based, and if you do wait for him to attack, you automatically (whether or not you had the materia equipped) counter with a normal attack which also kills him in one hit.

** The final Jenova fight is basically impossible to lose unless you've been doing a low-level run of the game. It only has 45,000 HP, and if you take more than 15 turns to beat it, it will cast Ultima and you automatically win. This attack is easily survivable if you've been playing the game normally. Interestingly, winning this fight in this fashion decreases the HP totals of the next two bosses.
