* The Hydra in ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' is merely a monster that Kratos encounters at the very beginning of the game while sailing to Athens and has no relation with Ares or his attack on Athens. The novelization confirms Ares has nothing to do with the Hydra, even asking if the other gods were responsible for it and its implied that [[spoiler:Athena might have been the one to send it in order to convince Poseidon to grant his magic to Kratos progress in his quest]].

** The Dissenter in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarGhostOfSparta'' is a Ares worshiper that sics a lion on Kratos in an attempt to kill him. He is a mere obstacle that has nothing to do with Kratos' quest to rescue his brother Deimos.

A BossBattle or similar villain that isn't teamed up/associated with or even [[EvilVsEvil opposing]] the BigBad, but is instead a lone wolf. They aren’t anyone's lackey; they’re a villain on thier own.

** Most [[ArcVillain Chapter bosses]] in ''VideoGame/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 [[spoiler:Grubba]] or Cortez, are simply bad guys who found one of the Crystal Stars and are using or hoarding it for entirely selfish reasons. [[spoiler:Doopliss]] is an interesting case since he ''starts out'' as a Lone Wolf Boss but then [[spoilers:allies himself with the [[TerribleTrio 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.

Sometimes overlaps with GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere, but while the Giant Space Flea From Nowhere comes from out of, well, nowhere, the Lone Wolf Boss is often established into the plot, and sometimes even plays a crucial role in some way, but either has nothing to with the aims of the BigBad, or is outright opposed to them. Compare PlotIrrelevantVillain and VillainOfAnotherStory.
