Hmm. Is this an example?

  • In Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic fights the Egg Golem in a cutscene... but only in the Dark Side Story. You still fight it as Eggman afterward, though, and you do get to fight it normally as Sonic in the Hero Side Story.

I don't think so.

Trope Repair Shop says: Tropes Are Not Bad

I cut out 99% of the description's complaining with my chainsaw.

The main advantage of a Cutscene Boss is its Cutscene Power to the Max. Yes, this can feel anti-climactic, but there may be very good reasons that the battle was non-interactive.

There may also be some examples that need pruning.

Removed the following.

It sounds like you do fight him in a battle, it's the penultimate hit that's a cutscene. That's not this trope, that's Coup de Grāce Cutscene.

Or maybe the explanation is bad and it is leigitimate. If that is the case, please add it back in.

Don't know if it's a good example [since it's followed by two more battles: a dogfight with the Alpha Sections, and the Final Boss - the DomZ priest]:
  • In the endgame of Beyond Good & Evil you shoot down General Keck's spider ship, defeat his bodyguards, and get ready to confront him - only to find him dying in the cockpit of the ship.

Cutscene Boss doesn't depend on having bosses before and after. Sounds like it's a legitimate entry to me. I'll add it.
