The Top Ten

1
Giygas - Earthbound
Is there anything here that has not been said before? I mean, really, with the release of earthbound on virtual console, everyone knows how disturbing this boss is. The fetus theory everyone has spread across the net is just a coincidence, as proved by the creators, but it is true that this boss was inspired by a murder scene he saw as a little kid that traumatized him for life. That face has haunted my dreams for years. Who has it not? Oh, and, the music. Have you ever heard what would happen if pyramid head and the re dead made a band? Yeah, that. But really, you all know how scary this boss is, I don't need to explain more.
No matter what, no other boss(or kid's games for the sake)can get scarier than Giygas. Have that EXTERMELY disturbing face. Also the music is worth a mention. What's worse is his origin. He was based of a childhood trauma by the game's developer. Now THAT is a disturbing boss!
Hm... Where to start... Oh yeah! This monster ( or aliens) second or third phase takes up as the form of a fetus! Really?! A fetus! And what giygas is referenced to is also unnerving... The creator of the game thought of giygas of a child hood moment where the creator walked into a wrong movie theatre... He was watch a movie called the policemen and the dismembered beauty... Or something like that... At some point of the movie, a women was screaming beside a lake... And the creator thought he had just witnessed a rape scene... Bur she wasn't really getting raped... So giygas's dialog was also based off of what he thought he witnessed... Other than giygas be unbelievably disturbing, he also causes eyes to hurt...

8Slender - Slender
Can everybody please just realize that his name is SlenderMAN, not just Slender
How isn't the being who changed the word "fear" in videogames as we know it not higher on the list? This was the first game that made me freeze in fear without even trying to.
Slenderman should be 1st. I mean its scary as hell... Well at least for me. Like I've played it a few times but every time I play it, I start breathing heavily and I start panicking. Not sure why that happens

Man, I can't get any sleep with that statue staring into my soul.
Some people also thinks that it's scary because of the Ben drowned thing.

25Barnacles - Half-Life
I start to vomit when I go near them
I JUST HATE IT WHEN THEY STICK ON TO YOU THEY MAKE ME SICK!

26Mad Jack (Factory Boss) - Donkey Kong 64
I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt this: First boss with a well weaponized armourdillo (pun intended) was a breeze.
Second boss with a vengeful fire breathing Dragonfly on roids. Once again was easy.
Third boss. Your stuck on a 4x4 map of towers altrrnating in colours of blue or white like a chessboard.
Some reject 50ft Jack in the box that jumps from tower to tower trying to not only squash you, but throws fireballs at you, shoots lazers from its eye, and turns invisible.
But that sorta stuff didn't faze me it was a maniacle laugh that haunted me. It wasnt til I turned 15 that I had to settle the score.

27Ghost Easter Egg - Super Mario 3D Land
Find this world in World 4-4. it's creepy, right?
Really very creepy. I hope Nintendo would remove it.

30Ghost Cars - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

32Game Over Music - Sonic CD (US Version)
Sonic CD was a great game, but the US soundtrack was so darn creepy. Especially the boss music...

33Beyond Hell Valley Sky Trees - Super Mario Galaxy 2

35Beating Heart of Liberty City - Grand Theft Auto IV
Funny because is not scary

36Crimson Head - Resident Evil
Don't EVER forget where you killed a zombie. For when you return to that spot, they become a crimson head! Really scary when you wander into the kitchen or basement thinking it's all cool since you already "disposed" of the zombies only to find there are bigger, faster, stronger versions of what you killed. They have definitely made my heart jump into my throat more than a few times.
