Top 10 Darkest E Rated Video Games

The Top Ten
1 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

I mean, how is this not rated E10+ or even T. Like even odyseey is more kid friendly than this. Majora is one most the most creepy looking things ever.

Literally the fate of countless characters lives are in Links hands and should Link fail in his mission then all of Termina is literally obliterated killing off everyone.

Absolutely the darkest and depressing games I have ever played, and it is also my favourite.

It's interesting to see how characters react to the end of the world.

2 Super Paper Mario

Spoilers: Your forced to kill a good guy, your enslaved by a girl named Mimi and you have to pay off a debt with other slaves, said Mimi snaps her neck, spins it around several times, then becomes a giant spider, a flower species king gets driven mad by water pollution and enslaves the people polluting the water (who are good and you can kill them), you kill the king who wasn't even in the wrong, then you witness a bright colorful world with at least 102 beings get erased from existence, then your forced to wander through the destroyed dimension, then one of the games main villains KILLS Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Luigi! Then Mario get's sent to HELL and he finds his friends and kills the Mario equivilant of Lucifer, then one of the people you were traveling with has to die to save the world! All throughout the game you slowly learn about the games main villain and your main partner, and it turns out they were once in love but then the villains father cursed her to wander through ...more

Geez, Nintendo, how did this become rated E? And while an amazing game, it is surprisingly dark. Who could forget Mimi snapping her neck, spinning it around, becoming a spider, and chasing you through the halls. Man, how is this game rated E?

Pretty obvious this should be number 1. First, let me address a HUGE SPOILER WARNING! First of all, it has some of the most if not THE most disturbing music in games, (River Twgys Bed, World of nothing) and quite a few sad moments. Of course it has great humor but it also has whole worlds getting ripped to shreds... Now everyone in that kingdom doesn't die, they get erased, meaning they don't exist at all, this also happens to Jaydes and Grambis daughter Luvbi. Of course it isn't that dark because you see Luvbi in the end credits. But who knows? Maybe Jaydes and Grambi did something dark like sacrifice to revive her? You never know... Heck, you even kill a good guy! You witness wildlife and an entire civilization dying from pollution. You even work as a slave! This game is very cynical and dark. Also, river twgyz is literally said to have the tears of sinners, that is why the water is purple and the sinners disembodied hands try to drag you down. You literally get send to hell (by ...more


There are many dark moments in this game, but the most notable of all would have to be the ending, where Bleck and Tippi sacrifice themselves to save the world.

3 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In a very gruesome scene the Shadow Queen devours the entire audience members.

4 Banjo-Tooie

In the opening sequence Gruntilda kills off Bottles who then turns into a ghost, later its revealed that Gruntilda plans to usr her sisters machine to suck up all life on the island to restore her old body the first person to suffer this fate was The King Jinjo who is turned into a zombie.

5 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Shadow temple, The little girls mummy dad, dead hand, did I mention Shadow temple? just a really dark game overall

6 Sonic Adventure 2
7 Pikmin
8 Spyro 3 Year of the Dragon

What starts of as a simple kidnapping of thebdragon eggs takes a dark turn when The Sorcerer reveals her real plan to kill off the dragon babies and take their wings.

9 Luigi's Mansion
10 Mother 3

This is rated E? Wow.

The Contenders
11 Earthbound

Giygas... Scariest Nintendo villain ever!

12 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time

The other three Mario & Luigi games are EXTREMELY lighthearted compared to this. Like the others, this game's story was still funny and had a certain charm(the baby bros were cute), but it has some dark scenes. In Hollijolli Village, near the beginning of the game, cute little Toads are KILLED on Christmas.

My favourite RPG of all time is also the most darkest entry in the Mario & Luigi series.

13 Metroid Fusion

The X are REALLY creepy. They enter a creature's body, multiply and then kill them. Then they will become a clone of that creature. The SA-X is also a HUGE source of dark nightmare fuel. Samus almost dies in the beginning of the game. I'm surprised nobody else added this

14 Undertale

Not rated e but incredibly dark. Child death, suicide, and lots of other dark themes. It's rated e10+ but should be t

Undertake is e10

15 Donkey Kong 64
16 Epic Mickey

Why did I have to add this?

17 The Dog Island
18 Super Mario Galaxy
19 Pokepark 2: Wonders Beyond

Saying Super Paper Mario is dark is like saying this game is dark. You start the game with giant black hands grabbing and kid napping your best friend, and at the end you find them hypnotized, insisting that you should play with them forever. You should play this game because is needs to be seen to be believed.

20 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
21 Super Metroid
22 Spider Man 2002

Based on the awesome movie, loosely based on the movie, and really dark

23 Um Jammer Lammy
24 Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
