Most Annoying Video Game Enemies

The Top Ten

1 Zubat: Pokemon Zubat: Pokemon

Gee I hope I find a zubat in this cave said NO ONE EVER

3 pokemon that act like one. They are pretty annoying because;
1. Walking in grass, there's a chance Rattata appears.
2. In caves, it's Zubat
3. Surfing, tentacool appears.
They are very annoying when you going somehwere. You're going to a place you need to and then the pokemon 'Mind if I interrupt? '

Whenever I run across a Zubat I run away unless I'm fighting a trainer. SERIOUSLY these things are so weak that you will always win, but they have a really gimmicky moveset that makes the fight drag on forever UHHH!

2 Cliff Racers: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

I can't believe no one has put these guys on this list yet! Anyways these things are easily the most annoying enemies in video games ever, and for several good reasons. First off: They may not have a lot of health but they fly almost completely out of reach of your melee weapons, making it very hard to kill them, and they take forever to kill with arrows. They also do massive damage to you and they can gang-attack you like no other enemy can. Can you even imagin being LITERALLY surrounded by hoards of flying reptiles that you can barely hit while they keep mercilessly stabbing you? Speaking of "hoards" they also respawn infinitely, so even if you manage to kill a large group of Cliffracers and you feel proud of yourself-BAM, More show up! Escaping is also useless because they will follow you for very long distances. And if that's not bad enough, GET THIS: they aren't found in just one area, or two, or even four, they are everywhere in the game. No matter where you go you will always ...more

3 Falcons: Ninja Gaiden
4 Eliminators: Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen

Why is it that in every medieval fantasy RPG game, it seems like there has to be at least one enemy that's specifically designed to ruin your experience? And heck if you need proof we have the Murlocs form World of Warcraft, Sirens and Arachnomorphs from Witcher 3, Metal Slimes from Dragon Quest, Skeleton Wheels from Dark Souls a few enemies from Elder Scrolls, Wraiths and Succubi from White Knight Chronicles, Like-Likes, Redeads and Iron Knuckles from Legend of Zelda and quite a few enemies from Dragon's Dogma. Dragon's Dogma is a great and fun game but anyone who's ever played this game especially the Dark Arisen expansion pack never has any fun when we run into a Hellhound, a Wraith, a Living Armor, a Strigoi or especially an Eliminator! There was some stiff competition in the series on who is the most annoying enemies from Dragon's Dogma but we have our winner - or loser? I HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE these sledgehammer wielding brutes in minotaur armor! They're beyond nasty and ...more - Virtualman

5 Wraiths: White Knight Chronicles II
6 Creepers: Minecraft

The worst thing about these guys are that you can't hear them at all unless you hit them or they start fizzing up. - aarond9010

Oh... Boy oh boy... SO MUCH TO COVER!
Creepers are very annoying for many reasons. One is because they explode and trample your homes. What MAN?! /
Another reason is because they destroy blocks and make your biome look ugly. Correct me if I'm wrong?
I bet you'd have more. We all just hate them.

I always play in peaceful mode in Minecraft to be not disturbed by zombies, creepers, skeletons and other enemies! When I play in other modes I am really annoyed, because from aggresive mobs in Minecraft! - AlexandraMoonDust

7 Large-Mouthed Fish: Rayman
8 Cazadores - Fallout New Vegas

These nasty bugs are one big thing you should watch out for. They are big, fast and deadly. Only thing you can do to weaken them is to cripple the wings. But that is not all! They can poison you! So it is a good idea to have anti-venom, or the poison kills you, fast. Examples of named ones are the Legendary Cazadore and Specimen 73 in Old World Blues DLC. So do steer clear of them. They will be the bane of your existence. They're already mine.

9 Ghast: Minecraft

We all hate them. They are making very annoying sounds and the hardest part is you have to hit there fire charge back at them, and they easily dodge. EASILY.

Although, I do enjoy a game of Ghast Tennis. - aarond9010

I made a ghast farm in the nether but one escaped and went through my portal
and then when I went back in my world, my home was utterly destroyed and I can't see
very well because of its shadow and I keep dying because of that stupid shadow.

10 Malboros: Final Fantasy Series

These things have high HP and will use a move called bad breath on you. Imagine trying to take out Godzilla if you were a poisoned confused sleeping frog.

"What's your favorite status effect? Mine is all."
*uses bad breath* - aarond9010

The Contenders

11 Fire Imps: Conker's Bad Fur Day

16 Like-Likes: The Legend of Zelda Series

I hate being eaten by these guys! - aarond90

17 Headcrab: Half-Life

These face humpers are not too dangerous, except for the poisonous one that TRIES TO REDUCE YOUR HEALTH TO 1% and when you get hit by those, watch out for the fast ones, they will take advantage to kill you instantly

For short: Poison Headcrab + Fast Headcrab or others = INSTANT DEATH

The only way to avoid 'em is to shoot it with a shotgun or a magnum, do not worry you'll now when they will attack when they emit a monkey screech or a pvz imp scream.

More annoying in half-life 1 try it

18 Koopa: Mario Bros.

They are annoying because once you kill them their shell goes everywhere and they are hard to catch. They also kill you easily with there shells gliding everywhere.

19 Metroid: Metroids
20 Papa Pigs: Angry Birds

They are those fat pigs with mustaches. They are a bit hard because some of the certain birds cannot kill him fully in one shot. Papa pigs are always usually built in steel or ice made towers, which makes EVEN more difficult.
