* Several of the antagonists from the ''WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon'' were one-shot villains. Ironically, the first episode's villains, the Funbusters, [[WeWillMeetAgain promised vengeance]] after the Garbage Pail Kids drove them away.

* Dr. Claw of ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' had a new special MAD agent almost every week, who would never be seen again after the episode they appeared in. ''WesternAnimation/GadgetAndTheGadgetinis'' did the same, but also had some one-time villains with no connection to M.A.D. or Dr. Claw whatsoever.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/ArrowVerse'' tends to use this to differing degrees across its shows, in addition to all having a seasonal StoryArc and BigBad:
** ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' itself has CorruptCorporateExecutive Of The Week in Season 1, followed by a more generic Criminal Of The Week in Season 2.
** ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has a different metahuman criminal every episode, similar to the earlier example from ''Series/Smallville'' mentioned below.
** ''Series/Supergirl2015'' has a different superpowered criminal or villain every week, though they're mostly aliens or alien related in season 2.
** ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' mostly averts this, since it has a much larger emphasis on the season villains, and instead has a [[TownOfTheWeek Time-Period Of The Week]].

* Unsurprisingly for a show set in a spy agency, most of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' follows this format. A good chunk of episodes have the format of "ISIS is hired for a mission, and either succeed by the skin of their teeth or bungle it completely" Season 5 and 7 avert this however, having more long-form storytelling.

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat had a fairly large gallery of oneshot villains and monsters for Felix to fight, such as The Sludge King, The Bermuda Triangle, Jeepers Creepers, The Elf and many others. This is especially distinct in the context of the WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat series, which only had a handful of recurring villains and very few oneshot villains prior to this revival.

* Many comics tend to have a story with a one-shot villain every now and then. It would be easier to list comic books and comic strips that DON'T utilize the monster of the week trope.
