What about the following two solutions?

list = List["Z:XBREG", "Z:XBREH", "Z:XBREI", "Z:ZZ6P", "Z:ZZ6Q", "aye"]
{Z:XBREG, Z:XBREH, Z:XBREI, Z:ZZ6P, Z:ZZ6Q, aye}

Complement[list, Select[list, StringPosition[#, ":"] != {} &]]
{aye}

Complement[list, Flatten[StringCases [#, _ ~~ ":" ~~ __] & /@ list]]
{aye}

Best regards,
Wolfgang
