* Papu Papu, the first boss of the first ''VideoGame/{{Crash Bandicoot|1996}}''. Every other boss in the series is either a scientist working with the [[BigBad Neo Cortex]], or an animal Cortex mutated. Papu Papu, on the other hand, is just the leader of a WackyWaysideTribe that Crash stumbles through.

This is relatively common in {{RPG}}s, where the player party often winds up just running into boss monsters 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 haunting the Death Chamber that attacks Knuckles after he finds the key to Eggman's base. Aside from living in the pyramid that Eggman turned into his base, it isn't associated with Eggman in any way, as the latter has his own Egg Golem as a guard, so it wasn't deployed by him. King Boom Boo is simply the [[KingMook leader]] of the smaller ghosts that keep appearing in Knuckles' levels.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** Belome and Punchinello in ''Videogame/SuperMarioRPG''. The game actually has quite a few villains who aren't connected with the main bad guys, but these two are given the least context. There's also Booster, who indirectly causes the game's most extreme example of GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere. Valentina, like Booster, is also the main villain of a story arc but is in no way affiliated with the BigBad.
** Despite being a Koopa, Jr. Troopa in ''Videogame/{{Paper Mario|64}}'' actually isn't aligned with Bowser.
** Most Chapter bosses in ''PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' aren't affiliated with the X-Nauts, the main antagonistic force in the game. Hooktail, however, does turn out to have been affiliated with [[spoiler: the game's BiggerBad]]. Most of them, such as Grubba or Cortez, are simply bad guys who found one of the Crystal Stars and are using or hoarding it for entirely selfish reasons. Doopliss is an interesting case since he ''starts out'' as a LoneWolfBoss but then allies himself with the Shadow Sirens after his chapter. Smorg is another odd example in that it was originally intended to have been a creature summoned by Beldam of the Shadow Sirens, but this exposition dialogue was cut in the final version, leaving its origins ambiguous.
** ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' has Francis, the third boss.
** Several bosses from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', such as Major Burrows and Buggaboom, have to be defeated because they're threatening innocent characters for personal reasons, not because Bowser told them to do so.
** The Bubble King and Ghost bosses from ''Videogame/WarioLand 2'', which initially start by capturing the Big Bad (temporarily). Kind of their own antagonists, considering that beating them gets an alternate ending.
** Many examples also exist in the ''Videogame/MarioAndLuigi'' series, like Popple from Superstar Saga, possibly Trunkle from the same game, Bowser in all three games, Durmite/whatever in Bowser's Inside Story, the Tower of Yikk (second giant Bowser boss) in the same game, Mom Piranha and the Piranha Bean in Superstar Saga, Mrs. Thwomp in Partners in Time, and Broque Monsieur in Bowser's Inside Story have no connection to the Big Bad whatsoever, and most have no connection to the storyline at all.
** In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'', you've got Grobot (which just malfunctioned), Mammoshka (who was just in the way), Mount Pajamaja (who you annoyed in the dream world), Big Massif (who you fight in the dream world to wake up his real world counterpart), Wiggler (who you fight because Popple made you think he was a security guard), Popple (who was just robbing a building at the time), the Zeekeeper, Pi'illodium and quite a few others.

* In ''VideoGame/MegaManX6'', Dynamo isn't helping Gate and his Nightmare Investigators, nor X and the maverick hunters; he's just there to gather some nightmare souls (which on this game would be something like Experience points) to make himself stronger.

Every other boss in the series is either a scientist working with the [[BigBad Neo Cortex]], or an animal Cortex mutated. Papu Papu, on the other hand, is just the leader of a WackyWaysideTribe that Crash stumbles through.



* In the first ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', Alastor was affiliated with JADOW, but didn't really care for their plans (even after explaining them in meticulous detail by reading the game's script aloud); he (as a NobleDemon Blood Knight) was only concerned with fighting strong opponents like the eponymous hero. In both ''Viewtiful Joe 2'' and ''Double Trouble'', he reappears, unaffiliated with either game's villainous organizations (GEDOW and MADOW) and is again only there to seek a rematch with Joe.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'': Battles against random bandits not affiliated with the story's main villains are ubiquitous, usually early in the game. [[FireEmblemElibe Blazing Blade]] actually somewhat subverts this by having a ''series'' of bandits stretched out over multiple chapters during Lyn's story, thus averting the "lone" aspect of it.
** [[FatBastard Oliver]] in Path of Radiance, a corrupt senator with connections to slave traders, serves as the ArcVillain while the group is in Begnion, but he isn't connected to Daien or [[BigBad Ashnard]] at all. He's actually fought because the leader of Begnion has promised an alliance against Daien on the condition that Ike's group help take him out.
** Validar in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is a strange case. He's fought while Mad King Gangrel is the current ArcVillain and seems to have no connections to him. However, Validar is actually TheHeavy of the game in reality and Gangrel is just a DiscOneFinalBoss, and while this is obvious to the player from the start, the characters in-game don't know this yet. So serves this role early on before becoming much more important later.

* Your rivals in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. They're not allied at all with the villainous team that are the main big bads of the game, but they challenge you anyway to test their strength. Sometimes they serve as the TrueFinalBoss after the main villains are dealt with, but not always.
* Cyborg Ninja in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is the only boss in the game that isn't a part of Fox Hound. He's a tertiary factor, antagonistic to both sides. [[spoiler:It turns out to be Gray Fox, who left Fox Hound before [[VideoGame/MetalGear1 the events]] [[VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake of the game]]]].
* Papu Papu, the first boss of the first ''VideoGame/{{Crash Bandicoot|1996}}''. Every other boss in the series is either a scientist working with the [[BigBad Neo Cortex]], or an animal Cortex mutated.
