* ''KingdomHearts'''s {{Bonus Boss}}es often edge into this, due to their [[OneHitKO abhorrent]] attack power and incredible speed. One of them even has attacks that bypass the abilities to stop instant/combo induced death, this is all made much worse by the rest of the game's relative ease, making sure the player's blindsided by the DifficultySpike.

** KHII Final Mix has two of these, unfortunately. First up is the full Roxas fight. Unlike the playable version of Dual Wield Roxas, this guy is completely batshit insane and uses his real powers to their fullest.. His standard attack combo consists of him constantly shifting left and right as he attacks and before you have a chance to immediately counterattack, he jumps right back and comes at you. After recovering from any attack, whether or not its a combo, he will retaliate immediately by jumping in the air and coming at you with you a rolling attack that will track and hit you, no matter how far you are. He also has his own version of the The End Reaction Command and if you can get it, you can snag his Keyblades from him to amp up your attacks. The catch however, is that he'll actually become even more aggressive and start throwing [[BeamSpam friggin laser beams]] at you until he manages to steal his Keyblades back from you. But at this point however, he'll start buffing his attacks with constant beam attacks in varying patterns. Not even getting into his desperation attack, he has another attack where he constantly spams Strike Raid while constantly buzzing around you. And it hurts. A lot. His Data rematch has massively amplified stats and more health so good luck

* Strike Freedom in the bonus stage at the end of branching routes in ''Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus''. Has the same functions as the playable version but has a health gauge way longer than any of the bosses you fight in the game, at least as long as Devil/Dark Gundam's. He also has an exclusive attack involving a rushing attack with his Wings of Light and Super [=DRAGOONs=]. After he's sustained a good amount of damage, he'll immediately strap on METEOR and then shit gets real; dual plasma cannons that can knock you down in one hit, plus missile spam and his strongest attack brings both BeamSpam and MacrossMissileMassacre together for a speeding wall of death on top of uber beam sabers. And to top it all off, his Assist is a METEOR-equipped Infinite Justice who will do the exact same thing when called on. If you've managed to hit him hard enough, he'll ditch the trashed METEOR and start fighting like "normal", except he'll have infinite [[SuperMode SEED factor]], giving him insane boost dashes, reduced boost usage and Full Burst Mode. Making this all significantly worse is whatever you have to fight before and during the battle with SF which are usually powerful suits like Wing Zero and 00 Raiser and if you followed a particular route to get to this stage, you have to fight all alone.



* Almost every king/top player ghost in [[WanganMidnight Maximum Tune]]. It basically a replay of that player's run down to every turn, braking, and collision made. When playing against it, it will try to stay true to its recorded course to the point of easily pushing away traffic cars (whereas you tend to get mucked up trying the same thing), and if you and it collide, it will most certainly get away scot free while you are left in the dust (unless you are in front of it).

** 3D also has a mandatory example, [[spoiler: Young Xehanort]] on Proud and Critical. While [[DifficultySpike most the bosses of the final stage]] [[NintendoHard are]] [[ThatOneBoss/KingdomHearts brutal, he takes it above and beyond]]. He's really fast, leaves little openings, is a master of TeleportSpam, and GameBreaker attacks aren't really effective against him. When you finally take out his health, ''he'll revive himself'' and you have to target his core while his ''non-targetable clones bombard you''. Even [[BonusBoss Julius]] isn't this insane.

YES, you actually fight the above-mentioned unfair bastard [[PunctuatedForEmphasis AS. A. STORYLINE. BOSS]]!]] At the very least, with that knowledge in hand, and developments in the story that lead up to this fight, beating this guy will feel VEEEEEEEEEERY satisfying and cathartic.

** ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' has [[spoiler:Star Dream Soul OS]], a [[MarathonBoss four-phase boss]] who has a [[DamageSpongeBoss metric ton of HP]], [[ThatOneAttack some very hard to avoid and damaging attacks that tend to cover most of the screen]], comes immediately after [[spoiler:[[ThatOneBoss Galacta Knight Returns]]]] who can easily whittle your HP down, has only one partial healing item before the fight, AND a [[spoiler:OneHitKill KaizoTrap]] at the very end of the fight just in case you do manage to somehow beat him. Die at any part of the fight? Have fun fighting every boss in the True Arena just to get to him again.



* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem Thracia 776]]'' is already the hardest ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' game in the series (or heck, it's probably the hardest game in existence!) Then along comes Chapter 22, which has several factors working against you as it is. Once you cross the second bridge, however, the first one collapses, and the mini-boss, Reinhart, starts attacking you. He has Dire Thunder, a weapon [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard normally only available to]] [[MagicalGirlWarrior Olwen]], which allows him to attack twice, and has FOUR skills: Continue (randomly allows him to attack twice in one round) Ambush (ensures that he attacks first no matter whose turn it is), Duel (forces another round of combat without allowing the unit that just attacked a chance to heal) and Big Shield (will randomly block one of your attacks entirely). With all these power-ups, it is literally and completely impossible to beat this asshole without resorting to status effect wands, which are rare. Silence keeps him from using magic, so you can thankfully use ranged attacks against him (he also has a Brave Sword) but the most reliable way to beat him is to put him to sleep, and yet both options are only achievable with a M-Up wand or a Holy Water, since your wand user must have higher magic than he does, and all stats except HP cap at 20 in this game! Reinhart's mere existence might just cause your file to become unwinnable if you don't have Warp wands, which most people use to kill the real boss on the first turn (He also has Big Shield, so [[LuckBasedMission good luck with that!]]) and warp Leaf to the castle and [[TheEnemyGateIsDown seize it for an instant win,]] but then you miss out on the chapter's other goodies. In fact, the first house on the map ''gives you a Warp wand,'' as if to say, "Yes, you dumb fuck, that's how you're supposed to clear this chapter." To add insult to injury, you have to have the above mentioned Olwen talk to him to obtain a rare weapon. Oh, and during the course of this chapter, you have to deal with the combined leadership stars of Reinhart, Ceon, and CYAS. Cyas alone has 10 leadership stars, and together, all 3 bosses have 19 leadership stars. This means every enemy on the map gets +57 to hit AND evasion. These bonuses also apply to the bosses themselves, so...good luck.
** Then there's [[FinalBoss Medeus]] on [[HarderThanHard Lunatic Mode]] in ''New Mystery of the Emblem'', who takes "blatantly unfair" UpToEleven. He has all his stats maxed out, which equates to:

** But, Medeus and Reinhardt are nothing compared to a BonusBoss in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': [[spoiler:Anna]], from the Apotheosis DLC. The boss has stats [[UpToEleven far above your own maximum stats]] unless you spam Rally skills AND buy the DLC for the skill that can raise your maximum stats by 10. And of course, an absolutely broken skill set with Vantage+ (which allows the boss to always go first in a fight), Dragonskin (halves all damage and negates enemy counter and lethality), Counter (damages any melee attacker for the amount of damage they've dealt), Aether (a skill that deals two hits, one that deals regular damage and heals HP equal to half the damage dealt, and another that halves the opponent's Def), and Rightful God (raises skill activation chances by 30%. That Aether has a '''65%''' chance of activating) And finally, you fight this boss after a marathon of the other bosses from the chapter who are also all ridiculously difficult. Thankfully, this map has the same difficulty on Normal, Hard, or Lunatic(+). It'd be impossible to imagine this any harder.

** In ''Twisted Metal: Black'', Minion now drives a tanker truck instead of a tank, but when you face him, his vehicle has shields that must be beaten down. And he's ''still'' not the cheapest boss in the game. That "honor" goes to the FinalBoss, Warhawk, an ''assault helicopter''. A helicopter in a car combat game is just as broken as you'd expect, but on top of it, he ''also'' has shields. This is why he wasn't made a playable character -- no matter how much the developers tried to {{nerf}} Warhawk, they couldn't find a way to make him exceedingly overpowered, especially in multiplayer. (They eventually did pull it off in the [=PS3=] game with Talon, which didn't have Warhawk's lethal special attacks.)

*** In 2.5, [[BrutalBonusLevel Data]] [[FinalBoss Final Xemnas]] becomes one of these. He was hard enough in Final Mix with his incredibly amplified stats (like the rest of the Data Rematches) and ability to use ThatOneAttack more often. Thanks to a [[GameBreakingBug nasty glitch]] in this version, one of his attacks can't be dodged without using a limit. Combine this with a tricky attack pattern and he might be the hardest rematch of all (more so than Data Roxas).

* [[spoiler: Sans]] of ''{{Videogame/Undertale}}'' is the game's hardest boss fight, and will break just about every rule of the game (and of turn-based [=RPGs=] in general) when fighting you. To review, he opens with a dramatic monologue, then immediately proceeds into his first attack before you have a chance to do anything (the only enemy of the game that does so). Oh, and this attack is his most powerful and can easily kill you if you're not ready for it. And should you die (and you will - lots) and go back, ready for this nasty little trip, he'll ''interrupt his own monologue and launch the attack early!'' He has only 1 HP, but he dodges out of the way of your attacks (once again, the only enemy in the game to do so), so you can't kill him. All of his attacks effectively ignore your MercyInvincibility, as coming in contact with his attacks inflicts a damage-over-time "Karmic Retribution" effect that worsens for ''every frame'' your SOUL is in contact with the attack. As the fight progresses he starts launching attacks that will hit you ''while you're navigating the menu''. About halfway through the fight, he'll offer you a Mercy option (in a game that explicitly encourages such things) and, if you take it, he'll immediately nail you with an unavoidable OneHitKill attack. Should you manage to survive all that, he unleashes his final trick on you, his "special attack": nothing. Namely he sits there on his turn and refuses to do anything, reasoning that if he doesn't act, it will never be your turn and, this being a turn-based RPG, you'll never be able to damage him unless you figure out how. ''Damn!''

He has Daim Thunder, a weapon [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard normally only available to]] [[MagicalGirlWarrior Olwen]], which allows him to attack twice, and has FOUR skills: Continue (randomly allows him to attack twice in one round) Ambush (ensures that he attacks first no matter whose turn it is), Duel (forces another round of combat without allowing the unit that just attacked a chance to heal) and Big Shield (will randomly block one of your attacks entirely). With all these power-ups, it is literally and completely impossible to beat this asshole without resorting to status effect wands, which are rare. Silence keeps him from using magic, so you can thankfully use ranged attacks against him (he also has a Brave Sword) but the most reliable way to beat him is to put him to sleep, and yet both options are only achievable with a M-Up wand or a Holy Water, since your wand user must have higher magic than he does, and all stats except HP cap at 20 in this game! Reinhart's mere existence might just cause your file to become unwinnable if you don't have Warp wands, which most people use to kill the real boss on the first turn (He also has Big Shield, so [[LuckBasedMission good luck with that!]]) and warp Leaf to the castle and [[TheEnemyGateIsDown seize it for an instant win,]] but then you miss out on the chapter's other goodies. In fact, the first house on the map ''gives you a Warp wand,'' as if to say, "Yes, you dumb fuck, that's how you're supposed to clear this chapter." To add insult to injury, you have to have the above mentioned Olwen talk to him to obtain a rare weapon. Oh, and during the course of this chapter, you have to deal with the combined leadership stars of Reinhart, Ceon, and CYAS. Cyas alone has 10 leadership stars, and together, all 3 bosses have 19 leadership stars. This means every enemy on the map gets +57 to hit AND evasion. These bonuses also apply to the bosses themselves, so...good luck.
