This is when a boss battle in a video game can be won very easily just by getting behind the boss and hitting them from there. The implication is that the developers did not intend for you to get behind the boss; nevertheless, it is possible. It isn't always easy, however. You may take damage or get hit while attempting it. You may only be able to do this for a few seconds before dying yourself. But if you can do it, well you've just saved yourself a lot of trouble. The boss will never turn around. Sometimes their attacks won't even hurt you, so it's basically an easy win. Examples:

  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - Scylla
  • Kingdom Hearts: Ursula
