Top Ten Scariest Things In Video Games

Drbazinga
Bosses can be scary, levels can be scary, heck even just... things can be scary so here is the top ten SCARIEST things in video games.

The Top TenXW

1Slender - 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

I barely sleep for a week after just watching videos of people play this. I didn't even play it myself.

2Endermen - Minecraft

I agree cause I could never kill them because they teleport and they sound strange and scary and worst... PURPLE EYES! I don't get why they die in water.

Poor EnderMen they haven't done anything to deserve what players do to them. They try to make peace by not killing you but people slaughter them for their ender pearls.

No offense people, but ENDERMEN? Seriously? They are so not scary. They are just as scary as a snake. (Which snakes AREN'T scary)

Is it just me, or does the Enderman's scream give you chills and shivers?

3Giygas - 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!

Giygas was based off a movie the creator saw as a child on accident, it left him traumatized for life. Now that's scary. - Mewbosses

Does anyone knows what movie the creator watched

4Marionette - Five Nights at Freddy's 2

You know when he's running, but you don't know when he dives in you

Ok ok I now the puppet doesn't jumpscare you so much you need to wind the music box

5Golden Freddy - Five Night's at Freddy's

This thing is just terrifying! When it jumpscares me, I will always say "NOO! MAKE MY GAME CRASH INSTEAD! AH! ".

He scares me so much - HATOOTEH

6Regeneradors - Resident Evil 4

The breathing... The unstoppable nature.

OH GOD NO! NOT THEM! PLEASE NOT THEM! - Dr_Sandvichius

7Mangle - Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Here's a tip for you guys. When you see the Mangle when you turn to the light in an air vent, DON'T DO ANYTHING AND JUST PUT ON YOUR MASK. DON'T TURN ON THE CAMERA, DON'T LOOK AT THE HALLWAY, JUST PUT ON THE MASK. OTHERWISE, YOU'RE DEAD. HE'LL CLIMB TO THE CEILING AND JUMP OUT AT YOU.

When I watch fnaf stuff, I just think of mangle as a girl swinging from the monkey bars. Not scary @ all.

8Herobrine - Minecraft

Fake, not real, false, phony, stupid. - Therater2

Ah Herobrine... You scared the pixels out of me when I was little and now I want you to come back you don't :'(

Herobrine is not real, If you trust him you must not be an adult yet.

Ha need him for a glitch in spore and he's not scary either

9ReDeads - Ocarina of Time

They are undead skeletons with rotten flesh hanging off their bones that make a horrible scream before they being to maul you and eat your brains.

The redeads from wind waker were scarier, because of them and that scream I hate the earth temple.

I was so scared of them in the 3D version cause they looked scarier. And the screams, I didn't play the game for several weeks because of that. The part about them humping you was kinda funny. - Pegasister12

They look like the masked kids in Pink Floyd The Wall! - AngryByrd

10The Moon - Majora's Mask

It has a face... That stares at you... For 3 days... And wants to kill you...

The moon just looks through your eyes and pierces your soul. It is always looking over you. Its just purely terrifying.

Have any of you SEEN the one in the remake? It looks more angered and insane than the original! Look it up!

I Have Seen This In My Dreams Now I Know Why When I Woke Up My Bed Was Really Cold. - FettiMC

They are really creepy... but luckily I have been playing this game for a long time

15The Aliens - Fallout 1, 2, 3
16Phantom Balloon Boy - Five Nights at Freddy's 3
17No Ammo Black Ops Zombies

I agree, having no ammo means to run around the map without harming the zombies.

I put this on here so I vote

When I'm out of bullets, I use a knife, but if I'm at round 10 or higher, forget it
