Top 10 Most Disturbing/Creepy Bosses in Video Games

A boss, otherwise known as a very difficult enemy to kill, is an enemy in games that you will encounter, most bosses require a number of attacks/strategies to defeat it. Anyway some bosses in games can be very creepy.

The Top Ten

1 Giygas - Earthbound Giygas - Earthbound

I think this should be number 1. You can hardly tell what he is other than a fetus-like entity. And also the music in the fight... So creepy... - Gojira

His second form is a fetus, which means his adult form is more powerful.

Earthbound may be an old game but there has been nothing quite like Giygas before or since!

I feel like I'm in a nightmare fighting this boss.

2 Nihilanth - Half-Life & Black Mesa

This creature has the ability of speech. When It talks to Freeman, it's actually referring to one of the hidden characters (G-Man). - Horrible_Username

3 GLaDOS - Portal GLaDOS - Portal GLaDOS is a fictional artificially intelligent computer system appearing in the video games Portal and Portal 2. The character was created by Erik Wolpaw and Kim Swift and voiced by Ellen McLain.

At least she gives you cake... Oh, it's a lie.

I LOVE Portal! GLaDOS is amazayn! - happyhappyjoyjoy

4 0² - Kirby Series

The source of Dark Matter as they are both final bosses of Kirby's Dreamland 3 and Kirby 64. In Kirby's Dreamland 3, if you keep on hitting it in the eye, it will pop out and drip what looks like blood and continue fighting. But what's worse in Kirby 64 is that it returns as what it looks like a fallen angel, crying "blood", and it's weak point is that green, spiky tail under it. Man, Nintendo just loves putting some creepy final bosses to contrast the light-hearted, cute and cuddly Kirby games.

WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS OK FOR KIRBY?! He's a cute little marshmallow dude! - Garythesnail

5 The Icon of Sin - Doom 2: Hell on Earth
6 Majora's Mask - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This boss scares the crap out of me. Imagine a heart shaped mask popping out of the wall growing tentacles, then arms legs and an eye ball, growing muscles with the eye ball forming into a head sounding like judge doom being tortured. what?

7 Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid
8 Randy Tugman - Dead Rising 2

A guy who is determined not to die a virgin. So he kidnaps this poor woman and tries to marry her. Also he is unattractive in every way. He's overweight, rude, and he wears a fetish costume at his "wedding". He kills his father with a giant chainsaw (accedental, and his father is the pastor.).
He's like Dylan from Dead Rising 3 and Jo from Dead Rising.

9 Solaris - Sonic the Hedgehog 2006
10 Antoine Thomas - Dead Rising 2

The Contenders

11 Harlan Wade - F.E.A.R. 3
12 Wither - Minecraft

That thing's got 3 heads, how can that not be creepy? - Pegasister12

13 Dorothy - Galerians
14 Wizeman the Wicked - Nights Into Dreams
15 Michael Reynolds - Illbleed
16 Mimi - Super Paper Mario

She's this little girl who's kinda like a cross between The Exorcist and The Thing. When Mimi transforms, the snapping of her neck is already the worst thing that could happen before her whole sequence! Oh, and she could be an homage to the final boss of Resident Evil 4.

The creepiest thing about this boss is in the mansion where when you stay in one room for a while...
No to mention the black background in Castle Bleck makes her third fight seem like its just a floating head.

17 Abstract Daddy - Silent Hill II
18 Omega Flowey - Undertale

Honestly this is one of my favorite bosses of all time and he's truly terrifying considering the entire game was pixelated up to this point then you get to him and he's a photorealistic nightmare as well as changing the way fights work in the game from turn-based to complete bullet hell with some of the most insane attacks. Plus that laugh and music. Also the fact he can shut off the game at certain points, heal all his health after you've depleted all of it, kill you over and over and still have time to make creepy remarks and gloat, Your Best Nightmare he certainly is.

This is honestly the scariest boss I've ever seen, deserves to be number one


19 Calypso - Twisted Metal
20 The Phase Destroyer - Radiation's Halloween Hack

Similar to the original Phase Distorter from Earthbound. Only this time it resembles a robotic, man-eating, bloodshot-eyed, horrifically deformed Mr. Saturn with an ENORMOUS, bleeding, bloodshot eyeball tumor sticking out of it. Oh, and the eyeball shoots blood-stained lightning bolts at you while the Mr. Saturn tries to eat you.

This THING is apparently the mental image that Dr. Andonuts has of the Phase Distorter in this hack. THAT... Is pretty sad and disturbing - xandermartin98
