Sorry I didn't see the part about no final bosses. How about Nemesis from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Think of the mooks!
For me, Litchi in BlazBlue. The only effective counter I have against her is using Arakune, and, well, Arakune is just cheap in general (fun, of course, but no less cheap). I win about half the time if I use Tager against her (by abusing his reach), but anyone else, it's an uphill climb.
Reminder: Offscreen Villainy does not count towards Complete Monster.

Real Bout Fatal Fury Special's Billy Kane. He's a sub-boss technically, but he's perfectly playable and in no way broken or unbalanced - the AI is just that good with him if you don't know what you're doing.

Sugar
Reuben Kee's (R.I.P. D=) characters in M.U.G.E.N, assuming that you're playing as a regular, balanced character. They all have a near-Perfect-Play A.I..
You know that Sugar is bad for your health? Well, I can show you...!

Champion of the Underrated
Would fourth SCIV's Apprentice, but he's a bossfight, and so doesn't count according to the OP.

Patsuka for definite, though. And regular Patrick too, for that matter; friggin' ground jugglers.

Most especially Nightmare, though. Fucking low grabs and undodgeable verticals.
Whatever all happens, I want to do right by you and I hope good things happen for you.

Two-bit blockhead
Kung Lao and Kitana in Mortal Kombat II. Kung Lao because of his unblockable throw, and Kitana because of her speed and combo ability.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
