** Similarly, [[spoiler: [[TragicMonster Yumiduka Satsuki]]]] in the Far Side routes, though she's an unusual example, since [[GenreShift most of the plot is]] PsychologicalHorror - she's mainly there to ensure that we don't forget the series is UrbanFantasy, and aren't offended when the plot ends with stabbing.

** ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' opens with Bond assassinating terrorist-for-hire Marco Sciarra following an eventful chase through Mexico City that climaxes in a fight aboard a moving helicopter. Sciarra has a good deal more plot influence than the average starter villain, however, as a signet ring taken from his body and testimony from his abused TrophyWife lead Bond to [[EurekaMoment the realization]] that all his previous enemies - Le Chiffre, Mr. White, [[Film/QuantumOfSolace Dominic Greene]], [[Film/{{Skyfall}} Raoul Silva]], and the Quantum organization as a whole - had served [[TheManBehindTheMan the same master]]: [[spoiler: Ernst Stavro Blofeld]].

** After the TimeSkip and thus Part Two of the series, we have Hody Jones. Sure, he's ''ages'' above Morgan and Alvida- they don't even come close to Hody - and he would have probably been a challenge before the timeskip, but after, he's absolutely no threat to Luffy at all and only manages to get in one hit ''even after going OneWingedAngel'' , whilst Luffy spends the whole span of their fight beating down on him, showing off his new moves. Even Zoro TheLancer manages to One-Shot Hody's pre OneWingedAngel form.

* In ''Videogame/FromTheDepths'', the Deepwater Guard pirates serve as the first enemy faction as you seek vengeance for their betrayal. The DWG are the game's weakest faction, using ships made largely of wood with [[PointDefenseless a designed weakness to missiles]], and have few top-tier units. Taking on the other factions results in a DifficultySpike, such as the Onyx Watch's all-metal hulls.

* ''TheDresdenFiles'': EvilSorcerer Victor Sells is the first bad guy to give Harry Dresden a serious challenge on-page, but doesn't make it past the first book (and there are ''much'' more dangerous things than him out there, anyway). From Harry's perspective his real Starter Villain was EvilMentor Justin [=DuMorne=], but as Justin's been dead for years by the beginning of the first book, the reader doesn't really experience him that way.

* In ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'' trilogy, Kyri Vantage sets out to get justice for the murder of her parents, and ends up thwarting a much larger scheme of which that was only a part. The ringleader of the group who murdered her parents, and also personally murders her older brother when his own investigation gets too close, is the main villain of the first book, and is defeated as its climax.

* Captain Blackstar in the Qwark vid comics in ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank3UpYourArsenal''. The only villain in the comics who has nothing to do with [[BigBad Dr. Nefarious]]. And he's still TheUnfought !

* ''Videogame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has Kellogg, the man who killed your spouse and took your son. Like Benny, tracking him down is the first act of the game. After you deal with him, the Brotherhood of Steel arrive and the game really begins to escalate.

* ''Literature/CodexAlera'': Atsurak the leader of a Marat barbarian horde. The novice spy races against time and an ex-mentor to BringNewsBack to the local Legion's garrison before Atsurak can invade a valley in a rural part of Alera. The FarmBoy gets used as a pawn by another barbarian, an enemy of Atsurak. Five books later, Atsurak is an afterthought, all the Marat are allies to the Alerans and actually the least important faction in that alliance, and it's not just the valley that's at stake but all intelligent life in the world. If not for the fact that some {{Chessmaster}}s from the first book are still around, the first book could be considered separate from the rest of the series.
