A level that consists entirely of a Boss Battle. Usually, this is done for plot reasons, even in games which don't have much. Said boss is almost always the penultimate or final boss.

This trope has become increasingly more common in recent platformer games. Compare Boss Game, where every level is a Boss-Only Level.
