** If you thought the Lingering Will was bad, wait until you fight Vanitas Remnant. While he has only one bar of health, be very very prepared. He has an absurd amount of defense and even if you managed to max out your character, your combos won't be doing a lot of damage like on other bosses. He is basically a souped-up version of Vanitas at the end of Ven's story, his attacks do fatal amounts of damage, usually almost one hit kills, even if you've leveled up excessively. He also has a new attack where he encases himself in an invincible sphere and launches shadowy versions of himself at you which fly quickly at you and deal insane amounts of damage and if you get hit, you'll be inflicted with Blind which [[InterfaceScrew obscures your line of sight almost entirely]]. Don't even try to use Cure spells, because he will go right ahead and do he same, so actual potions and exlixirs are essential. Like an actual SNK Boss however, he's not very smart and will blindly run into Mine spells without changing his path.
** And then there's the other secret boss introduced in the North American and Japanese re-releases, the Mysterious Figure. Drop all of your uberpowerful commands and spells in favor of quick ones that offer invincibility frames because this guy will ruin your day hard. Everytime he is in motion, running or walking, he is constantly warping and darting around, so forget your Shotlock. Instead, don't use Shotlock at all because he actually has access to the Heal Block command which transfers any usually incurred damage into health. He has a long combo not unlike Xemnas, but it is far far longer and it WILL deplete your health to zero, unless you have the Chance abilities equipped. He also has access to a projectile version of Tornado that will literally blow every command in your immediate deck out of your body, forcing you to try and pick them back up while he finishes you off. Gets even worse when he jumps into the air and throws out an energy whip. If you get hit by this, you will assuredly die because not only does it almost take out almost all of your health in one sweep, he will not hesitate to spam it over and over again, AND it negates your Chance abilities. Aside from his Beam Spam attack and Doom attacks, he has the annoying ability to actually recover bits of lost health by turning back time if he gets hit by a powerful attack. And then when he actually gets desperate...

** Unlike a lot of other SNKBoss characters, [[spoiler: Sans]] has an in-universe ''reason'' for screwing you over via gameplay: [[spoiler: he'll only ever appear to fight you if you, the Player, take the [[OmnicidalManiac No Mercy Run option]], which involves slaughtering or attempting to slaughter ''every single monster in the game'', including characters like Toriel, the little monster kid, and ''Sans' own brother Papyrus''. For players who enjoy indulging in VideoGameCrueltyPotential in a game that emphasizes how you don't have to kill anyone, Sans is a [[YouBastard wakeup call]]: he can't stand by and watch you murder everyone, so his sole objective is to stop you, the Player, from finishing your run by any means necessary. As he knows that the player is capable of SaveScumming, the only way he can stop you entirely is by making you RageQuit.]]

** Lategame bosses on ''Conquest'' path in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' tend to fall into this, starting with Chapter 23: [[spoiler:Takumi]] has Point Blank skill allowing him to attack with bow at close range, [[spoiler:Hinoka]] has her weakness to anti-air weapons nullified, [[spoiler:Ryoma]] is a DuelBoss with ridiculously high stats, and [[spoiler:Iago]] not only can use status-inflicting staves despite being a Sorcerer(a class which ''never'' had access to them), he comes with a special skill that grants them boosted range and '''unlimited charges'''!

** ''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 ThatOneBoss [[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.
