Scariest Resident Evil Monsters

The Top Ten

1 Nemesis

The most infamous monster in the series. Bar none. He's notorious for making himself a childhood nightmare since his release. I played RE3 when I was only 9. The moment he ambushed me in the police station and made me panic to a dead end forced me to turn off my PlayStation and I was too scared to play the game. It took me a decade before I had the balls to tackle it and he STILL startles the hell out of me.

Almost all creatures are scary but the fact that this mofo's soul purpose of being created was to murder you is a slight bit more twisted. "STARS"... what's worse is I never beat the game... I have high anxiety and being stalked through the entire game kinda made me not able to breath or something (that's my excuse I'm dsticking to it

Damn I remember the first time I played re3 and he appeared out of nowhere in the police station almost made me pee myself

One of the most feared creatures of video game history.

2 Iron Maiden


For those who don't know what the hell these things are, Iron Maidens are from RE4. They are a breed of Regeneradors with spikes across their body. These things are given the ability to grab you from a distance and impale you on their bodies (yes, I'm being serious here). Just wanted to say, due to the confusion for these and the Crimson Heads.

This zombies are seriously disturbing because of their appearance and 5 times more scarier than a common zombies but the worse is they are hard to hit so it means that they are enough to catch you.

Sorry, are we talking about that zombie found in the tomb from the remake? That actually counts as a Crimson Head.

3 Reaper

Reapers are giant Africa cockroaches cockroaches are scary the way they kill you but it is good when you see sheva or Jill killed by reapers they give you boners

This thing is unstoppable the only way to kill it is by shooting it's heart glow they are just as hard to get rid of as real regular size cockroaches

Reaper is scary even scarier if chasing you

Scariest enemy in resident evil by far

4 Zombie

oh they look so scary they freak me out

5 Regenerator

Nemesis would be scary in real life only,when I look at the regenerator on my pc screen,it makes me chills.

These things can kill you really quickly, ESPECIALLY on Professional.

My opinion scarier than the iron maiden

Pure FEAR when first time encountering it.

6 Hunter

Very scary they make loud noise

7 Licker

These things are disgusting

8 Lisa Trevor

She may be scary in appearance but the scariest thing is her backstory. She was a 14 year old girl that was abducted by umbrella and experimented on with many viruses, her body is so disease ridden that all the other viruses umbrella injected into her just died off because of her contaminated blood. Umbrella decided to just get rid of her and leave her to die.

I hate how that freaky thing shows up in the cabin in the REmake. - someguy12345

she still scares the hell out of me! - wolphert

9 Tyrant

Behold the ultimate Bioweapon: Tyrant. These things have been appearing in the series since the first game and have hunting you down in the labs under Spencer Mansion, the halls of the RPD and even in the air over Rockford Island. They also make for some of the best boss fights in the series.

10 Cerberus

I swear, I can't go into that one zombie dog room in resident evil remake, where the zombie dogs pop out of the windows, I hate them things!

When I actually first encountered these things in the game, I literally screamed the whole time I had to fight them.

The dog zombies are more scary than crimsons heads

The Contenders

11 Yawn

He is awesome a giant cobra

It's a Giant Snake, how's that not scary?

See how scary it is?

12 Crimson Head

These are like super fast mega zombies! - wolphert

13 William Birkin

How the hell is he in 19th? His first face wasn't scary. His second and third face creeped me out. The fourth face freaked me out a bit. And the secret ending nearly made me pee myself! He at least deserved top 10.

How the hell is William brikin only number 27 I mean come on William brikin should at least be in the top 10 he does look really scary for ps1-n64-dc graphes he's the scariest monster in resdint evil 2. I mean he's gets more gross and scarier as the game goes on if you don't know what I'm talking about watch William brikin thansomaitons see if he desires number 27

14 Leech Zombie

Because of these zombies I couldn't finish game :(

Best regular enemy of all Resident Evils of its generation (GameCube /PS2/Xbox). Makes you review your inventory, especially M. Cocktails. " 🍸
Far reaching swipes and acid baths for your character from the Leeches.
And that music when they arrive- so freaky.

15 Neptune

I think this is the scariest because does anyone know it's weakness

It's a zombie shark for goodness sake

16 Haos
17 U3

This thing if your first time playing is scary and very vicious if your not careful your body is slice in half in he is hard on the cage as he comes out in disturbing you so you cannot activate the switch

18 El Gigante

This guy is a giant he will kill nemesis

19 Verdugo
20 Uroboros

This thing is disgusting

21 Osmund Saddler
22 Bitores Mendez
23 Ustanak
24 Giant Chainsaw Man

Giant chainsaw man is either Dr salvador or possibly the garrador

25 Ramon Salazar
26 Executioner

Come on! Throwing something scary like this at start of Re 5 makes the encounter tense!

27 Mr. X
28 Del Lago
29 Carla Radames
30 Derek Simmons
31 Black Tiger

As an as sufferer of arachnophobia, you'd understand how scary this thing is.

32 Zombie Elephant
33 Ooze Rachel

"Hmmm Hmmm mm... "
" It Hurts...It hurts"
"Someone... Help... Me... (crying) "
Need I say more?
So tough and psychologically traumatizing. And to get an achievement, you even need to beat her in" timed" limit.

34 Mia Winters

The first hour of this game was the some of the most tense gameplay in a horror game I've had for quite some time. I was desperately hoping Mia would be the main enemy but instead we got a terrifying substitute in the Baker family. Her crazy, bloodthirsty eyes and her demonic demeanor nearly sent me into a panic attack. - steelersrock7

35 Thanatos
36 Tyrant R

Redown form the dead

37 Ganado
38 Giant Spider
39 Colmillos
40 Majini
41 Saddler

It’s a giant spider with a human head with an eyeball in it’s mouth. Whats scarier then that?
