    Load Bearing Boss

    Concept »

    Often the death of a boss results in the collapse or destruction of the building or lair that the fight occured in. In many cases there is no other action other than the boss's demise that is shown to trigger this destruction.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    Load-bearing bosses are bosses whose defeat results in the destruction of the lair in which the fight occurred. Such a boss's load-bearing nature is often inexplicable, as there is no stated connection as to how being defeated could cause an entire fortress, space station, or office building to collapse or explode. In these situations, players are often tasked with making an escape before the structure is destroyed entirely.
