Top 10 Scariest Enemies In Mario Games

This top 10 list is about Mario enemies that could frighten us the most in our nightmares. WARNING: These enemies really are scary. So before you go to bed tonight, hope that you can face your fears by looking through this list. No bosses included.

The Top Ten

1 Phanto (Super Mario Bros 2)

It haunts your darkest imaginations! This giant mask with its evil grin is the ultimate stalker! If you have its key, it'll track you down to get it back. Even if you're a million miles away from the Phanto, it'll find you! - Super-Eric1993

Those scary masks are even scarier in Super Mario Advance. The Phantos look different in Advance. If you don’t get what I’m saying, look at the comparison between All Stars and Advance.

2 Mr. I (Super Mario 64)

This is a giant eyeball that'll never keep its eye off of you. It'll stare at you without blinking. It's more terrifying when it shoots beams out of its pupil! It is like an alien from another world. Since they're many of them, you're being watched all the time. - Super-Eric1993

3 Grim Leecher (Yoshi's Island)

This horrifying ghost is best described as the symbol of death. The skull on its face makes it even scarier. It'll chase you and attempt to latch on to you. You definitely do not want this enemy to sneak up on you. - Super-Eric1993

4 Dry Bone (Super Mario Bros 3)

They are like zombies. They're undead Koopa skeletons that keep reviving after every stomp. Sounds like something that came out from a horror movie. - Super-Eric1993

5 Boohemoth (New Super Mario Bros 2)

The biggest Boo is the scariest. It is truly humungous! Just like any other Boo, it'll only follow you if you look away from it. But unlike any other Boo, this gigantic terrifying ghost can crush you to the wall! - Super-Eric1993

6 Swooper (Super Mario World)

They live underground and fly like bats. They are even scarier in the dark, even with their glowing eyes. - Super-Eric1993

7 Pidgit (Super Mario Bros 2)

This flightless crow is known as the bringer of bad dreams. Since it can't fly, it uses its flying carpet to swoop down and attack. - Super-Eric1993

8 Hot Foot (Super Mario Bros 3)

It may light up the dark, but it's no night-light. It will sneak up on you when you look away from it. - Super-Eric1993

9 The Mad Piano (Super Mario 64)

I laughed so hard when I first saw this one! It's like, "Hey, I'm-a gonna play this-a piano OH SWEET MOTHER OF Bowser! " - Garythesnail

This thing almost made me threw my game console to the wall in surprise when I encountered it for the first time - FireWasp2004

Scariest thing I've ever seen.

I was so scared of this as a little kid playing sm64ds!
