* 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.

* King Boom Boo from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. A ghost haunting the Death Chamber that attacks 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.
** King Boom Boo is the [[KingMook leader]] of the smaller ghosts that keep appearing in Knuckles' levels. But aside from living in the pyramid that Eggman turned into his base isn't associated with Eggman in any way.
* The only boss in ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' that is related in some way to the [[BigBad Panther King]] is the Experiment; and it's because it and the Tediz were created by Ze Professor so they could ''defeat the Panther King'' (Conker still has to defeat them because they are threatening the otherwise peaceful kingdom).

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.

* 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).

** {{Implied|Trope}}

** 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.
