A well-designed midboss can easily be more memorable than an area's final boss.
Conversely, a bland midboss – take for example, most boss fights in Devil May Cry 2 – is easily forgettable, and you're neither richer nor poorer for the experience, save for the notion that your time could have been better spent doing most anything else.
