10 Video Game Enemies That Scare the Crap out of You

It’s the moment in a video game that you do not expect and are not happy about.   You come across some kind of enemy that you don’t quite know how to kill not to mention it’s something that scares the hell out of you.

I guess it’s a good sign when said character does in fact scare you.  It means the game creators did a good job.  Still though, it’s uncomfortable.

This isn’t a new topic but we came up with our own list of 10 video game enemies that scare the hell out of us….

Thanks to Cracked, Listverse, and Joystick Division for their respective lists that helped us form this one.

Cherubs in Doom 3


You have to go back to 2004 to remember these guys.   It was Doom 3.  The game sucked.  Let’s get that straight.   However, you have to admit these guys were a little frightening when you first came across them.

Goro in Mortal Kombat


I don’t know about you guys but I remember the first time I came across Goro on the Genesis version of Mortal Kombat.   It scared the living shit out of me.   Seriously.   I guess once you learned to take him on he wasn’t so bad but what an intimidating force.

Anything Water Related in Sonic


Can you remember a sound that was scarier than the water countdown in Sonic?  I can’t.

Piggsy – Manhunt


Piggsy only thinks he’s a pig. In reality, he is a mentally ill man who is locked away in an attic who wears a pig head mask and nothing else.  Kind of reminds me of that crap Saw wears.

Lisa Trevor – Resident Evil: The REmake


She was the human test subject on numerous experiments that mutated her both mentally and physically. The Spencer family researchers gave her “type-B” Progenitor virus, along with her mother, who received the “type-A.” Lisa unfortunately survived this infestation.  Ouch.

Poison Headcrabs – Half Life 2


When you first see these things jump at you it’s not a good moment in your life.

Evil Otto – Berzerk


Looks harmless right?  Wrong.  Did you know that two gamers actually died of heart attacks in the 80s after getting a high score?  Yeah.

Kusabi – Fatal Frame II


Call me crazy but this guy is definitely related to Shang Tsung.

Pyramid Head – Silent Hill II


He appears as a strong, tall dude that wears a big sheet around his waist. His head is adorned in what looks like a torture chamber that has a single slit drilled into it.  Seems scary enough to me.

Crimson Head – Resident Evil


If you happen to forget to set a zombie on fire after lighting it up, it will stand up, red with anger.  In other words, don’t piss this guy off.
