Top Ten Scariest Things In Video Games

Bosses can be scary, levels can be scary, heck even just... things can be scary so here is the top ten SCARIEST things in video games.
The Top Ten
1 Slender - Slender

Slenderman should be 1st. I mean its scary as hell... Well at least for me. Like I've played it a few times but every time I play it, I start breathing heavily and I start panicking. Not sure why that happens

The worst part about him is he so featureless. So, if someone starts believing in him, every shadow, every white spot in the night, every tree turns into him. Whether he is real or not, he is a nightmare.

I saw a video of people playing it, as well as my daring friend also plays it sometimes, seriously just thinking about slenderman makes e afraid to open my own bedroom door.

How isn't the being who changed the word "fear" in videogames as we know it not higher on the list? This was the first game that made me freeze in fear without even trying to.

2 Endermen - Minecraft

Poor EnderMen they haven't done anything to deserve what players do to them. They try to make peace by not killing you but people slaughter them for their ender pearls.

I agree cause I could never kill them because they teleport and they sound strange and scary and worst... PURPLE EYES! I don't get why they die in water.

How many times have you looked out the window and seen those purple eyes floating and disappearing in the dark?

These things aren't scary, why is it higher than The Marionette or the (shudder) mad piano?

3 Giygas - Earthbound

Is there anything here that has not been said before? I mean, really, with the release of earthbound on virtual console, everyone knows how disturbing this boss is. The fetus theory everyone has spread across the net is just a coincidence, as proved by the creators, but it is true that this boss was inspired by a murder scene he saw as a little kid that traumatized him for life. That face has haunted my dreams for years. Who has it not? Oh, and, the music. Have you ever heard what would happen if pyramid head and the re dead made a band? Yeah, that. But really, you all know how scary this boss is, I don't need to explain more.

I’ve seen many videos of players battling and defeating Giygas, and even when I actually faced him in my first full play through of Earthbound, I was very unsettled. The music that plays is spine chilling, the way the thing moves is uncontrolled and spastic, his appearance is very very VERY odd compared to the colorful Nintendo bosses like Bowser or King a Dedede. That is why I love this boss so much. He stands out to surprise the player that you went from runaway dogs to a creature that is full of evil and wants death and destruction.

Hm... Where to start... Oh yeah! This monster ( or aliens) second or third phase takes up as the form of a fetus! Really?! A fetus! And what giygas is referenced to is also unnerving... The creator of the game thought of giygas of a child hood moment where the creator walked into a wrong movie theatre... He was watch a movie called the policemen and the dismembered beauty... Or something like that... At some point of the movie, a women was screaming beside a lake... And the creator thought he had just witnessed a rape scene... Bur she wasn't really getting raped... So giygas's dialog was also based off of what he thought he witnessed... Other than giygas be unbelievably disturbing, he also causes eyes to hurt...

People are so funny when they say Slenderman is scary. Giygas steps up the scary stuff by a mile. You truly know that he's not to be messed with. The fetus theory may be a coincidence, but the origins are still scary. He's the reincarnation of the childhood trauma of Shigesato Itoi thinking he saw a rape scene. If the guy doesn't phase you, look at his boss theme. Not scared? Listen to it at night. Giygas also takes over the planet by betraying his loves ones- all of these things show how Giygas truly is a disturbing thing. You can not grasp the true form of the fear Giygas gives you.

4 Marionette - Five Nights at Freddy's 2

You know when he's running, but you don't know when he dives in you

Ok ok I now the puppet doesn't jumpscare you so much you need to wind the music box

Mari, scary? Please. Shes just like that jack in the box u had when u were little. When she jumpscares u, just imagine that she is trying to hug U. Ik, that's lame, but trust me. It works.

Why the Marionette attacks you: Marionette: TURN MY MUSIC BACK ON U B****! You: sorry!

5 Golden Freddy - Five Night's at Freddy's

THE ENDERMAN IS NOT SCARY! Geez...whoever voted that doesn't know Minecraft. I know its inspired by slenderman but still its not scary. Its just some teleporting thief who steals blocks and attacks if seen by the eyes (body if in PE). Plus it seems kinda cute to me.

But golden Freddy is as scary as EVER! The jumpscare almost killed me! I had nightmares for nights!


Gold freddy was based on the murderer in chucky cheese

I like him, but he sounds constipated.

Just imagine every animatronic is NOT there 2 kill u, instead they r there 2 give u a big hug. Ik it's lame, but it works. Trust me.

6 Regeneradors - Resident Evil 4

Scared Me so much especially the ones with spikes. When I was on the island all I kept hearing was the breathing. even if they werent around...

When I first fought him I thought what a easy thing but when he stand up oh my god the horrer

Yes finally wiped out the regenerators! 'Comes back to life'. Crap!

They are scary but if you have explosives it's a piece of cake

7 Mangle - Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Mangle is a character from Five Nights at Freddy's. It has a yellow eye and a black eye. It is designed as a broken fox.

When I watch fnaf stuff, I just think of mangle as a girl swinging from the monkey bars. Not scary @ all.


8 Herobrine - Minecraft

Ah Herobrine... You scared the pixels out of me when I was little and now I want you to come back you don't :'(

Thanks to mods you can fight Herobrine as a boss.

Mods:Mob Armor, Mo Herobrine, Herobrine, Polkz, Herobrine Apocalypse, etc.

This guy is a perfect example of a agonizingly generic pathetic story

Herobrine is not real, If you trust him you must not be an adult yet.

9 The Moon - Majora's Mask

The moon just looks through your eyes and pierces your soul. It is always looking over you. Its just purely terrifying.

I remember that when I was a little kid, that one of my nightmare monsters had a face just like that godforsaken moon.

Terrifying! It's even more scary when it's towards you at the last few hours because it's right at your face.

Have any of you SEEN the one in the remake? It looks more angered and insane than the original! Look it up!

10 ReDeads - Ocarina of Time

I was so scared of them in the 3D version cause they looked scarier. And the screams, I didn't play the game for several weeks because of that. The part about them humping you was kinda funny.

They are undead skeletons with rotten flesh hanging off their bones that make a horrible scream before they being to maul you and eat your brains.

The redeads from wind waker were scarier, because of them and that scream I hate the earth temple.

They look like the masked kids in Pink Floyd The Wall!

The Contenders
11 Lavender Town Theme - Pokemon Red/blue/yellow

An urban legend was made about it causing people to kill themselves. And this song is so scary, I could almost buy it.

Actually when talking about urban legend, there were accidents where people killed themselves

What makes me laugh is how these kids believe this myth is true

Yes I agree I listened to it and it really made me think why Lavender Town is a 'ghost' town.

12 Giratina - Pokemon Platinum Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Giratina is like Satan! Giratina grabbed Cyrus... Now that's scary.

Welcome to hell. We have Giratina also known as the devil here!

It isn't really creepy. But it is a force to be reckoned with.

If Giratina was in hell I'd actually want to go to hell...

13 Mad Piano - Super Mario 64

You see a piano. You walk towards it. Then BAM! It opens up showing teeth and jumps at you!

It USED to be scary when I was a child, and it still does, but not as much

Whenever I enterthis room, I always make sure I do what I have to do as quickly as possible.

Gave me a heart attack with this one

14 SCP-173 - SCP: Containment Breach

Isn't this based off of Weeping Angels?

Hehe more like 087B or that screaming dude that runs at you

Many heart attacks were had.

A good creepypasta as well

15 No Ammo Black Ops Zombies

I agree, having no ammo means to run around the map without harming the zombies.

When I'm out of bullets, I use a knife, but if I'm at round 10 or higher, forget it

This is why I hate Call of Duty

Scariest thing on this list.

16 Omega Flowey - Undertale

Oh my gosh. It's like you put Flowey in a radiation tank and blew it up, and it mixed with a T.V..

I was literally preparing for this flower.

17 Fast Zombies - Half Life 2

Holy hell the screeching and yelling from these miserable abominations, fast things that hunt in packs and are fast, the wolves of the headcrab zombie universe, and being hunted by wolves would be scary especially in an abandoned city, at night, with the only person helping you maybe slightly insane and only has 2 shotguns

They are really creepy... but luckily I have been playing this game for a long time

They not zombies

In Gmod IS Fast zombie

18 Beyond Hell Valley Sky Trees - Super Mario Galaxy 2

These aren't scary. They're just from a removed Galaxy (Beyond Hell Galaxy) they're not scary guys!

It is a scary secret and it will give you nightmares

Why the HELL is this in a Mario game?

Hate iPhones. Pressed on accosent

19 Phantom Balloon Boy - Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Balloon boy is not aloud to have a jump scare

20 The Aliens - Fallout 1, 2, 3

What about Super Mutants?

21 Tails Doll - Sonic R

Sorry I forgot what its called but a very bad game goes creepy. If you pick tails doll and do something like tag sonic last he will come out of your T.V. and KILL YOU!

Oh Shadow... Tails doll scared the crap out of me...

I find him cute also, CAN YOU FEEL THE SUNSHINE (i can)

22 Dr. Andonuts' Magicant - Radiation's Halloween Hack
23 Ben - Legend of Zelda Ben - Legend of Zelda Product Image
24 Ao Oni - Ao Oni

AhHhH that thing is creepy

Just weird and creepy

25 Snacker the Shark - Banjo-Kazooie

I was so afraid to go into the waters of Treasure Trove Cove.

Whenever he starts to attack, the Jaws theme starts to play.

Most Awesome game ever
