Most Horrifying Video Game Enemies


The Top Ten

1 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill 2 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill 2

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

This is the scariest video game villian 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.

2 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.

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!

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

I am 12, when I first encountered the brute, I screamed the whole time until he was gone.

4 Slender Man - Slender

Slender Man doesn't deserve to be on this list, he is one of the least scary enemy's and creepy pastas I have heard of.

He may look a little funny but if you know his backstory you will never want to look behind you again laugh out loud

Slender Man is not scary, but I have been played him too much times and he made me a few jumpscares of his games! I am really brave at his games, but in Amnesia I'm not really brave! :D - AlexandraMoonDust

5 Regenerators - Resident Evil 4

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, ITS SCARY AS F@%&

6 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".

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

WHY ARNET THEY IN THE TOP 10 THEY SHOULD BE FIRST! They are the scariest things I have ever seen especially when you have no idea when they are gonna pop out!

7 Nurse - Silent Hill 3
8 Wallmaster - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
9 Giygas - Earthbound Giygas - Earthbound

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

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

10 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.
