This is when a VideoGame boss isn't teamed up or associated with the BigBad. He's a lone wolf and isn't anyone's lackey. He's a villain on his own. This is relatively common in {{RPG}}s, where the player party often winds up just running into bosses that just happen to be at the end of caves, attacking a town, guarding {{MacGuffin}}s, etc.

* King Boom Boo from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. A ghost is haunting the Death Chamber and harasses Knuckles after he finds the key to Eggman's base. Eggman has his own Egg Golem as a guard, so it wasn't deployed by him.

* Many of the bosses in the second half of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''-- Phunbaba, Doomgaze, the Eight Dragons, and Atma Weapon-- don't work for Kefka, but were [[SealedEvilInACan released from their slumber]] when he started mucking about with plate tectonics. In the first half of the game, Vargas has nothing to do with the Empire-- he's just a martial artist with an unrelated grudge against Sabin-- and neither does Dadaluma, a thug who apparently just loves to fight (and is possibly mentally disturbed).

* The Experiment in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is not affiliated with any of the other antagonists, and is only fought because it was stealing presents from Santa Claus.

* The Experiment in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is not affiliated ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': ** {{Implied|Trope}} with Shan Yu. He has his own army of Heartless, but is never seen making contact with Pete or Maleficent to make any sort of the other antagonists, deal. He's trying to conquer [[Disney/{{Mulan}} The Land of Dragons]] on his own, and is only fought battles Sora because it was he's in the way. ** Hades is shown working with Pete during the first visit to [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Olympus Coliseum]] on a joint venture to take care of both Sora and Hercules, but on the second visit appears to have ended the alliance to focus on Herc. ** On the first visit to [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloween Town]], Lock, Shock, and Barrel are working for Maleficent and fight you to buy time for Oogie to get better from his [[BackFromTheDead recent resurrection]]. When they're encountered on the second visit, they're not working for anybody and start causing trouble in Christmas Town [[ItAmusedMe just because it's fun]]. ** On the second visit to Halloween Town, somebody is stealing presents from Santa Claus. Claus for unknown reasons. It's later discovered that the theft was caused by the Experiment, a creation of Dr. Finklestein's that went rogue. [[BetaTestBaddie It stole the presents in a vain attempt to gain a heart]], which Dr. Finklestein did not give it during the creation process.

Please link properly
* The Metroid series: ** The B.O.X Security Robot in MetroidFusion is the only boss in the game to not be infected by an X parasite. The first time, anyway, as it reappears for a second round once an X parasite infects it's organic components. ** Crocomire in SuperMetroid does not seem to be affiliated with the SpacePirates at all, mostly just being a random Zebes creature until Samus shows up and attacks it. ** ''MetroidPrime2Echoes'' has almost all of it's bosses being either Ing or Ing-possessed creatures. The exceptions are Dark Samus, who appears three times doing her own thing, and the Caretaker Class Drone, a random machine that attacks Samus.

* Depending on which version of the game, the first boss or most of the bosses in ''VideoGame/DonaldDuckGoinQuackers'' aren't affiliated with the final boss and BigBad Merlock (the one exception being the Game Boy Advance version, where Merlock is the only boss faced in the game). To elaborate:

Adding another example of Lone Wolf Boss that I noticed from Donald Duck Goin Quackers
* The first few bosses of most ''Videogame/{{Touhou}}'' games rarely have much to do with the plot

To elaborate: ** The first boss (Bernadette the Bird in the console versions, Humphrey the Bear in the Game Boy Color version), due to being a non-anthropomorphic animal, is clearly not attacking Donald because of Merlock's orders and simply serves as an obstacle to prevent Donald from rescuing Daisy immediately. ** While the Beagle Boy faced in Duckburg and Magica De Spell appear to be attacking Donald for their own reasons in most versions, this isn't the case in the remake made for [=PlayStation=] 2 and [=GameCube=], where the Beagle Boy trio and Magica actually mention being ordered to attack Donald by Merlock in the cutscenes prior to their boss fights.
