* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath]]'', the only bosses who are aligned with [[spoiler:[[BigBad Sekto]]]] are the Castaraider and the Gloktigi. All the other bosses are their own independent villains.

* The only boss in ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' that is related in some way to the [[BigBad Panther King]] is the Experiment, found and fought in the WarArc chapter; 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).

** 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.

** Most 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 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 Lone Wolf Boss 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.

** 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.

** In ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'', [[spoiler:Proteus Ridley is the only Space Pirate to appear, having shown up to steal the last Metroid from Samus]]. Arachnus, returning from ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', reprises it's role as a non-Metroid boss, and was the only one back in the original Metroid 2. Samus Returns also adds the Diggernaut, which is a Chozo machine that goes haywire and likewise has no affiliations with the Metroids.

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'': Aragog isn't a minion of Voldemort. Also [[spoiler: Lockhart]] is just working to improve his own position, and has nothing to do with the heir of Slytherin.

[[spoiler:She does join them in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', but less because she cares about pureblood supremacy and more because they give her a convenient supply of victims to torment.]]

** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' has almost all of its 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.

** The B.O.X Security Robot in ''VideoGame/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.
