A recurring boss is a boss character or monster that you have to fight multiple times over the course of the game. This does not include multi-stage boss fights, only a boss that you beat once, then have to face again later in the game. Usually the player will be led to believe they have killed the boss, only to have the boss have somehow cheated death and return to challenge the player once more. Sometimes, a recurring boss is built into a core gamepay mechanic, such as in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.
