Top Ten Scariest Things In Video Games

Drbazinga
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

Can everybody please just realize that his name is SlenderMAN, not just Slender

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.

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.

Hm it's a creepy dude>

2 Endermen - Minecraft

No offense people, but ENDERMEN? Seriously? They are so not scary. They are just as scary as a snake. (Which snakes AREN'T scary)

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.

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.

ENDERMEN? Are you serious? - Ultron123

3 Giygas - Earthbound 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.

No matter what, no other boss(or kid's games for the sake)can get scarier than Giygas. Have that EXTERMELY disturbing face. Also the music is worth a mention. What's worse is his origin. He was based of a childhood trauma by the game's developer. Now THAT is a disturbing boss!

Giygas was based off a movie the creator saw as a child on accident, it left him traumatized for life. Now that's scary. - Mewbosses

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.

4 Marionette - Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Marionette - Five Nights at Freddy's 2

I been scared and jump sacred half to death all because of a puppet who gets pissed off without music

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

5 Golden Freddy - Five Night's at Freddy's 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 man...it almost killed me! I had nightmares for nights!

Why don't we replace the ENDERMAN WITH THIS REAL SCARE MASTER?

Gold freddy was based on the murderer in chucky cheese

I like him, but he sounds constipated.

He scares me so much - HATOOTEH

6 Regeneradors - Resident Evil 4

The breathing... The unstoppable nature.

OH GOD NO! NOT THEM! PLEASE NOT THEM! - Dr_Sandvichius

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

This list is messed up - DarkShadows

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

Here's a tip for you guys. When you see the Mangle when you turn to the light in an air vent, DON'T DO ANYTHING AND JUST PUT ON YOUR MASK. DON'T TURN ON THE CAMERA, DON'T LOOK AT THE HALLWAY, JUST PUT ON THE MASK. OTHERWISE, YOU'RE DEAD. HE'LL CLIMB TO THE CEILING AND JUMP OUT AT YOU.

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 :'(

Ha need him for a glitch in spore and he's not scary either

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

Thanks to mods you can fight Herobrine as a boss.

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

9 ReDeads - Ocarina of Time

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.

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. - Pegasister12

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

10 The Moon - Majora's Mask

It has a face... That stares at you... For 3 days... And wants to kill you...

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

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

This should be number 2. And take endearment off the list - SoloPotato

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 - DubstepLover

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

12 Mad Piano - Super Mario 64

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

I find it quite humours

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

Scarier than FNAF - BlueSheepYT

13 Giratina - Pokemon Platinum 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.

Welcome to he## we have giratina also known as the devil here!

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

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

You gotta admit, Giratina's jumpscare is scary, but what makes it unsettling is Giratina rising up in a puddle of black shadow or gooey like terrain and revealing its spiked wings 0_0

14 No Ammo Black Ops Zombies

I put this on here so I vote

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

How is this scary?!?

More annoying than scary - DubstepLover
