%%** ''Grave Peril'': The Nightmare [[spoiler: aka Leonid Kravos]]
** ''Dead Beat'': Grevane, who appears first and most often of the three necromancers and is fought most consistently through the novel, though he's probably the least ''dangerous''.
%%** ''Proven Guilty'': The Scarecrow
%%** ''White Night'': Vittorio Malvora
%%** ''Turn Coat'': Shagnasty the Skinwalker
%%** ''Changers'': Duchess Arianna

to:

%%** ** ''Grave Peril'': The Nightmare [[spoiler: aka Leonid Kravos]]
Kravos]] is Harry's most consistent opponent across the book, but the actual mastermind is the vampire Bianca.
** ''Dead Beat'': Grevane, who appears first and most often of the three villainous necromancers and is fought most consistently through the novel, though but he's probably not the least ''dangerous''.
%%**
most dangerous or the FinalBoss - that's Cowl.
**
''Proven Guilty'': The Scarecrow
%%**
Scarecrow causes most of the bad things that happen in the book, but he's an enforcer for Winter Court royalty and doesn't act under his own initiative. The actual mastermind is left somewhat ambiguous.
**
''White Night'': Vittorio Malvora
%%**
Malvora's attempt to overthrow the rest of the White Court serves as the book's primary plot, but the actual chessmaster behind him is Cowl.
**
''Turn Coat'': Shagnasty the Skinwalker
%%** ''Changers'':
Skinwalker is one of the most terrifying opponents Harry has faced to that point in the series and serves to stymie his search for TheMole on the White Council, but the mole himself is [[spoiler: Peabody]].
** ''Changes'':
Duchess AriannaArianna sets most of the plot in motion when she poisons the White Council and kidnaps [[spoiler: Harry's daughter]], but her dad the Red King, who doesn't show up in person until the climax, is the true BigBad of the book and DiscOneFinalBoss of the series as a whole.



* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' [[TheCaligula Visser Three]] is leading the [[PuppeteerParasite Yeerk]] invasion of Earth, but the Yeerk Empire is actually ruled by the Council of Thirteen, who only appear in one book. He's also technically outranked by [[EvilVsEvil his rival]], Visser One, who started the invasion but is only a recurring villain in the series. There's also a GreaterScopeVillain, [[CosmicHorror Crayak]], who is pulling the strings of the Yeerk invasion (and just about every other evil thing in the galaxy) but can't do much directly, being limited by [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien the Ellimist]].

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', the main opponent of the heroes so far is not the BigBad (who's currently content with being TheGhost), but his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Esme, who creates the Cleaved and sends them after the protagonists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'': Bishop Ladja is the BigBad's Dragon, but his habit of making it personal with the hero and directly supervising his boss' schemes makes him a much bigger target (and so much more cathartic to kill once and for all).

* {{Series/Angel}}: Lindsey and Lilah drive most of the conflicts related to Wolfram & Hart even though they're really only {{mooks}} to the actual higher-ups of the firm. Wolfram & Hart's actual director, [[spoiler:Linwood Murrow, isn't even seen until season 3 and then gets killed by Lilah a season later. Even then he was still below the Senior Partners who don't show up until the last season.]]

* General Deathshead in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' has come a long way since his first appearance in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. In The New Order, he is single-handedly responsible for producing the technology which won Germany the war, and becomes B.J's nemesis after [[spoiler: brutally murdering one of B.J companions]], setting off a grudge that carries on for 14 years. His presence is felt everywhere in the game, as he is the creator of most of the war machines B.J fights and the ultimate goal of the Resistance is to kill him.

* Pontiff Sulyvahn from ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' is the pope of [[ReligionOfEvil the Cathedral of the Deep]], and many of the characters in the game and lore have suffered as a result of his diabolical plans. He himself is one of the toughest bosses in the series, armed with dual greatswords and two forms of dangerous magic thought to oppose each other. In spite of his influence and threat, he is outranked by [[BigBadEnsemble the Lords of Cinder]], one of whom is the central figure of the Cathedral.

* The first page of the ''Tome of VideoGame/EternalDarkness'' that Alex finds, details the fall from grace of Roman Centurian Pious Augustus, who is lichefied and tasked with summoning an Ancient over the course of two millennia to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the civilized world]]. Every bearer of the Tome that follows has Pious as their main antagonist, and he easily gets the most lines of dialogue after the game's {{narrator}}, Dr. Edward Roivas.
