Top 10 Most Horrifying Video Game Enemies

The Top Ten
1 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill 2

This is the scariest video game villain ever. This creeps me out every time I see it. The first time I played Silent Hill 2 I had NIGHTMARES when I encountered Pyramid Head for the first time.

The thing that's scary about it is that you can't even fight him. You have to run away.

Pyramid head is blocking my way and want for a battle, but he is invicible and he can 100% one shot you.

2 Crimson Head - Resident Evil

Appearing in the remake if you leave a zombie laying around long enough eventually they transform into these blood hungry monsters there super fast and super lethal just one shriek from these guys will make you run back through the door you came just from.

3 The Gatherers - Amnesia: The Dark Descent

I haven't even played the game, because as a 21 year old I would have really bad nightmares. Just watching Let's Plays of Amnesia is enough for me to call this the scariest enemy in video games.

But... What the hell is Pyramid Head doing on number 1? I've played through Silent Hill 2 and Homecoming, and he's not even close. There are enemies in Duke Nukem 3D that I find scarier than him.

This doesn't even need an explanation. Go watch an Amnesia LP and tell me those aren't scary.

4 Zombie Dog - Resident Evil

They may be small but they they're just enough to make you jump ever since that first time in Resident Evil when you walked down that hall way and these dogs bust through that window.

The first time I went down the hallway and the dogs crashed through the window I literally freaked out.

5 Necromorphs - Dead Space

Your telling me that Slender Man is scarier than Necromorphs. Whenever I play dead space I sit there hoping that another Necromorphs won't jump out of a vent and scare me to death, but When I play Slender I sit there staring back at slender saying "what are you gonna do you little girl kidnapping pansy ass suit wearing no eye nose or mouth son of a baby".

The very first time I came across these alien like monsters in Dead Space I literally freaked the scariest thing about them is they come crashing down from the vents when you least expect it.

Whats scary is their look, a horrific mutation that vaguely resembles a human, but is gored and twisted into the most disturbing zombie you'll ever see

Slender is a princess compared with this dudes...

6 Alma Wade - F.E.A.R.
7 Slender Man - Slender

He looks like a children's drawing...how is he scary? He's just a tall, faceless, white guy who looks like he's off to a business meeting and discuss more crappy jumpscare games.

He's just a children's drawing...how is that scary? He's just a tall, faceless, white guy who's dressed like he's off to a meeting to discuss more crappy jumpscare games.

You never actually see him move and he has no face and he shows up unexpectedly he could even be standing right behind you the whole time.

Being in the woods at night is scary enough but having a faceless figure hunting you down will send shivers down your spine.

8 Regenerators - Resident Evil 4

In resident evil I've taken on zombies, dogs, psychotic villagers, hunters, lickers, crimson heads, piranhas, bats, a giant scorpion and slime, but these guys cross the line. They are truly the most terrifying resident evil monster.

For one the way it walks to you is creepy, slow as it may be, and from the name that it can regenerate body parts when you shoot at it. The scariest thing is its breathing, which is not normal. What I'm saying is, IT'S SCARY

The noise they make and their body movements... Scariest game character ever for me hands down.

9 Eddie Gluskin - Outlast: Whistleblower
10 Drippler - Terarria

The Contenders
11 Withered Bonnie - Five Nights at Freddy's

Between the puppet and this horrible thing fnaf 2 has caused me more sleepless nights than jason, freddy, and Michael myers combined.

12 Omega Flowey - Undertale

This is a living nightmare, made of human flesh and a weed all mashed up, making all you nightmares become real, putting in a bad dream you will never wake up from, permanently scarring your game every time you die.

He broke the 4th wall in the raw! He just hacked your game, deleted all your savefiles, so you just can not escape this nightmare! This terrible thing just made your game his game! He trapped you in his own savefile that was even named his name! Even when you die the game over screen is a pure horror that craches game.TobyFox just gave this creature a live!

It looks like a fan-made creation that just threw a bunch of monstrous things together.

He should be number 1

13 Lisa - P.T.
14 Blood Zombie - Terarria
15 Giygas - Earthbound

I first played Earthbound at 9 years old, and this guy seriously gave me
The creeps. I turned off the system when I first battled this guy, and
While I'm not that scared of him that much anymore, he still creeps me
Out.

This guy doesn't scare me. In fact, I think he is cool looking.

16 Deathclaw - Fallout 3 / New Vegas

OH MY GOD even though I cleared put quarry junction long 15 and sloan of the I was on the edge of my seat watching each and every corner until I made it successfully straight to new vegas they were a truly ferocious enemy that scared the crap out of me.

Ever seen something that made you go the other direction? This guy is one of those.

Shoot one with an unsilenced weapon I see? Let me just tell 18 more about what you've done.

17 Nightmare - Five Night at Freddy's Nightmare is an antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 and one of the seven nightmare animatronics (ten if the Halloween Edition animatronics and Plushtrap are counted) in the game.

19 Invisible Horror - Eternal Darkness
20 Kusabi - Fatal Frame II
21 Nurse - Silent Hill 3
22 Baraka - Mortal Kombat Series Baraka is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. Baraka was introduced in Mortal Kombat II in 1993 as an unpredictable warrior in service of Outworld emperor Shao Kahn.
23 Redeads - The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

God, I hate these things. I was so scared of encountering these during my playthrough on my emulator. The fact that they can freeze you and then get in a very inappropriate position on you...not to mention they're doing it to a child? E for Everyone, Nintendo? I don't think so. And don't get me started on that scream...still drives me insane to this day...

While not meant to be a scary game, Ocarina of Time terrified me sometimes as a kid. The main reason for this was Redeads-and you had to run past them every time you turn the game on.

Though there not the fastest enemies in the game but thanks to their special ability they don't have to be if one of them catches you in their site they unleash a horrible scream that paralyzes you in fear.

I agree egnomac, they're undead skeletons with rotting flesh unleashing a horrible scream paralyzing you in fear!

24 Withered Chica - Five Nights at Freddy's
25 Wallmaster - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Enderman... Really scary especially in The End! When you look at him, he SCREAMS! (Only on the PC. ) And he runs fast and takes a lot of damage. When I tried to hit him with my diamond sword but he teleports away and then teleported behind you! Scary!

I walk into the room just minding my business. I cut through all the other enemies in the room with ease when I hear a loud scream and see a giant hand grabbing me and carrying me back to the start. this ones gonna scare you for a long long time.
