If you break NOTHING, this will never happen.
edit: and I don't see why you wouldn't want to paralyze the boss by breaking their weak-spots anyways, it makes for an easier and quicker fight. Break a leg on Ragne and he's paralyzed, switch to the next leg and repeat before he goes out of "I'm down, please come f**k my weak spot" mode. You can chain all 4 legs and then go for the weak spot behind his head and he'll be dead in 1 cycle.
