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.

Oh no no NO! - AlphaQ

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.

3 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.

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

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.

Slenderman sucks and is not scary at all to be honest. - AlphaQ

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 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
Out.

Looks like a fetus lol - AlphaQ

He's a fetus. 'enough said.

9 Wallmaster - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
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.

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

The Contenders

11 Invisible Horror - Eternal Darkness
12 Eddie Gluskin - Outlast: Whistleblower
13 The Mannequins - Condemned Criminal Origins

16 Victim Ghosts - Silent Hill 4: The Room
17 Lisa - P.T.
18 Will Wright - The Simpsons Game
19 Crimson Head - Resident Evil
20 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. - TheGrammarPolice

21 Witches - Left 4 Dead

Unpredictable and dangerous. The way they shriek at you right before you startle them scares the crap out of me every time.

22 Baraka - Mortal Kombat Series 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 Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid Psycho Mantis - Metal Gear Solid
24 Vladimir Makarov - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 & 3 Vladimir Makarov - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 & 3

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

25 Reborn Laura - The Evil Within

Kill it with fire!

26 Slashers - Dead Space
27 The "Phaze Destrortur" - Radiation's Halloween Hack

"At the time I didn't know why I was so scared. Now I know why...
THAT MACHINE WAS A DEATH TRAP." - xandermartin98

28 The Amalgamates - Undertale

Just imagine what they would look like in real life. People mixed together in a big pile, terrifying.

29 Killer Croc - Batman: Arkham Asylum Killer Croc - Batman: Arkham Asylum Killer Croc is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
30 The Suitors - Amnesia: Justine
31 ReDead - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

No No No make this number #1. I couldn't sleep for days after hearing that bone chilling shriek

32 Sander Cohen - BioShock
33 Vegetoid - Undertale
34 Nemesis - T Type - Resident Evil

Why isn't this AT LEAST #2?

35 The Frog Fish - The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

It can spit balls of blue goo at you and have it's lure (disguised as an old lady selling ice cream) spin it's huge ice cream cone at you and hammer you with it. And while it misses hammering you the cone leaves behind a small splotch of green goo.

It's pretty scary when it's about to charge into you.

Real Frogfish do have a worm lure to attract their prey, but the writers behind the SpongeBob movie decided to change it to ice cream sundays because that's what attracted SpongeBob and Patrick.

That is one ugly fish.

36 Creeper - Minecraft

More annoying than scary...

Creepers aren't truly scary, but they make me very nervous and I always jump when I hear that "hss" sound.

37 Spoiled Rotten (Scary Face) - Wario Land 4
38 Shao Khan - Mortal Kombat Trilogy

This guy's a pain in MK9

39 Metroids - Metroid
40 Carlo Falcone - Mafia II
41 Big Sisters - Bioshock 2

These things horrify me! Their shrieks, the way they appear our of nowhere, and those red eyes terrify me! I'm not afraid of Big Daddies, though. It's hard to believe that those used to be Little Sisters!
