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.

I love how suspenseful the game really is and its perfect for some Gatherers to just pop out of a closet when you don't expect it the most

oh. my. freaking. god. hearing that music makes chills my spine and makes me shiver. and you hear the "rrargh" just before he attacks. and you have to run. and if he ses you for too low you're god damned screwed! and that is, trust me, scary!

4 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.

Slender is a princess compared with this dudes...

I mean, he looks pretty human.

5 Alma Wade - F.E.A.R.

*crys* even her name strikes fear into
Roles hearts FEAR I tells ya FEAR

Driving a car down Alma street in the middle of nowhere at 10:30pm. Looking around listening to music. Sees a black cat run across the road to a little girl in a red nightdress taking the rubbish out.

GET OUT OF HERE. THIS REJECT OF A CHILD IS GOING TO PULL ME OUT OF THE CAR WITH HER MIND POWERS, BLOW ME UP WITH A MACH 3 ELBOW TO THE FACE IN HER MIND, TOSS THE CAR FROM HERE TO CHINA TO DESTROY THE EVIDENCE OF ME EVER EXISTING AND THEN GIGGLE ABOUT WHAT SHE JUST DID.

6 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.

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.

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.

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

7 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.

They look like the love raping you

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.

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

Looks menacing.

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

9 Eddie Gluskin - Outlast: Whistleblower
10 Drippler - Terarria

why do you think I added this? this is a T rated game

The Contenders

11 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.

Looks like a fetus lol

He's a fetus. 'enough said.

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 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.

My favorite fnaf character

14 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.

15 Lisa - P.T.
16 Blood Zombie - Terarria
17 Invisible Horror - Eternal Darkness
18 Kusabi - Fatal Frame II
19 Nurse - Silent Hill 3
20 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. He is the shadowy incarnation of Nightmare Fredbear, and the final antagonist in the game.
21 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.

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 Garradors - Resident Evil 4
24 Evil Otto - Berzerk

Evil Otto scared two people to death just by smiling at them. That's right. Just to regular guys having a good old time at the arcade.

25 Vladimir Makarov - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 & 3

The nmost horrifying thing about this man is that he isn't above killing civilians.
