* Gulpo (King of the Blobs), a [[VillainOfTheWeek oneshot villain]] from the WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat cartoon "Felix Babysits". He's not affiliated with [[BigBadWannabe Professor]] or [[BigBad Master Cylinder]], he's just a [[MegaMicrobes ravenous amoeba]] that becomes a threat to Felix and Poindexter when the latter shrinks Felix and unwittingly enlarges Gulpo with a formula. [[TheBusCameBack He comes back as a boss fight]] in the [[VideoGame/FelixTheCat 1992 video game]], but due to the games [[ExcusePlot wafer-thin plot]], it's not clear if he's affiliated with Professor now or if he's just giving Felix trouble again for the heck of it.

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 VillainOfAnotherStory.

** 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.

* In at least half of ''VideoGame/TimeCrisis'' games, Wild Dog is working with the BigBad as a mercenary, but in ''Time Crisis 3'' and ''4'' he bears no apparent connection to these games' respective villains, only appearing to get his revenge on the VSSE.

This is relatively common in {{RPG}}s, where the player party often winds up just running into wild monsters that just happen to be at the end of caves, attacking the town, guarding {{MacGuffin}}s, etc.

* ''VideoGame/TheCrew'' has Cameron Rockport. Whereas the other named opponents are members of the 510 crew[[note]]though most of them don't become opponents until the Face Off event in the West Coast region in the games' final story act[[/note]], 'Cam' is a lone individual who serves as the boss of the South region, as his efforts are the sole reason there isn't a significant 510 presence in the region.

* From the second ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'', Sauron. He makes it very clear he sent Apocalypse's goons packing when they came recruiting, but when the player mentions they work with Ka-Zar, he attacks out of spite.

* In the first ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'', the Mandarin, Mephisto, and Galactus are not affiliated with Dr. Doom or the Masters of Evil. Mandarin had previously left the group after a failed attempt at taking it over for himself, and the two immortal beings were used by Doom in his quest for power. Nonetheless, you still have to fight them.
