Your confrontation with the Sealed Evil in a Can
that represents all evil
has been foreshadowed throughout the whole game. Finally, you get to its magic castle, defeat The Dragon
in a suitibly dramatic confrontation
, and then... that was easy.
Surprise! The Dragon
was the real Final Boss
of that game, and what you just fought was really the Post Final Boss
In clearer terms, the Post Final Boss
is an easy
boss you fight to clean up the plot after you fight the real Final Boss
. They're more common in RP Gs
than other types of games mainly because RP Gs
pay more attention to the plot than other types of games, but they can also be found in nearly any game that has a plot.
As this is an Ending Trope
, there will be Spoilers.
You have been warned.
