Also, in some fights the immediate objective is "Stay Alive" or "Survive" which you'll see flash up on screen then fade slowly. You can usually see this again if you hold the "V" button down. Those fights, even when it's a normal enemy, can kill you if the hardcode in the game says you should have died from those two rockets to the skull.
I love this bit (the game says you should have died from those two rockets to the skull) Just epic.
