The Top Ten Scariest Video Game Enemies

1 Necromorphs - Dead Space

The very first time I came across these alien like monsters in Dead Space I literally freaked the scariest thing about them is they come crashing down from the vents when you least expect it. - egnomac

Why do people just be so scared of slender he's not scary and it said I'm like him but the creepiest thing he's from creepypasta ah - simpsondude

Slender is a princess compared with this dudes...

I mean, he looks pretty human. - MasterBeef

2 Slender Man - Slender

Being in the woods at night is scary enough but having a faceless figure hunting you down will send shivers down your spine. - egnomac

You never actually see him move and he has no face and he shows up unexpectedly he could even be standing right behind you the whole time. - egnomac

He looks like a children's is he scary? He's just a tall, faceless, white guy who looks like he's off to a business meeting and discuss more crappy jumpscare games.

He's just a children's is that scary? He's just a tall, faceless, white guy who's dressed like he's off to a meeting to discuss more crappy jumpscare games. - OnyxDash

3 Crimson Heads - Resident Evil (GC)

Appearing in the remake if you leave a zombie laying around long enough eventually they transform into these blood hungry monsters there super fast and super lethal just one shriek from these guys will make you run back through the door you came just from. - egnomac

4 Garradors - Resident Evil 4
5 Redeads - The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

Soulless, all it does is stare and grab you, hoping to bring you into its suffering. - MasterBeef

Though there not the fastest enemies in the game but thanks to their special ability they don't have to be if one of them catches you in their site they unleash a horrible scream that paralyzes you in fear. - egnomac

God, I hate these things. I was so scared of encountering these during my playthrough on my emulator. The fact that they can freeze you and then get in a very inappropriate position on you...not to mention they're doing it to a child? E for Everyone, Nintendo? I don't think so. And don't get me started on that scream...still drives me insane to this day... - OnyxDash

While not meant to be a scary game, Ocarina of Time terrified me sometimes as a kid. The main reason for this was Redeads-and you had to run past them every time you turn the game on.

6 Regenerators - Resident Evil 4

The noise they make and their body movements... Scariest game character ever for me hands down.

Looks menacing. - MasterBeef

In resident evil I’ve taken on zombies, dogs, psychotic villagers, hunters, lickers, crimson heads, piranhas, bats, a giant scorpion and slime, but these guys cross the line. They are truly the most terrifying resident evil monster.

7 Zombie Dogs - Resident Evil series

They may be small but they they're just enough to make you jump ever since that first time in Resident Evil when you walked down that hall way and these dogs bust through that window. - egnomac

The first time I went down the hallway and the dogs crashed through the window I literally freaked out.

They look like the love raping you

8 Omega Flowey - Undertale

It looks like a fan-made creation that just threw a bunch of monstrous things together. - MasterBeef

This is a living nightmare, made of human flesh and a weed all mashed up, making all you nightmares become real, putting in a bad dream you will never wake up from, permanently scarring your game every time you die.

He should be number 1

He broke the 4th wall in the raw! He just hacked your game, deleted all your savefiles, so you just can not escape this nightmare! This terrible thing just made your game his game! He trapped you in his own savefile that was even named his name! Even when you die the game over screen is a pure horror that craches game.TobyFox just gave this creature a live!

9 Ghosts - Luigi's Mansion

When there's something strange, in your mansion, who you gonna call...LUIGI! - MasterBeef

How is this above fripking GIYGAS!

10 Pyramid Head - Silent Hill series

Pyramid head is blocking my way and want for a battle, but he is invicible and he can 100% one shot you.

The Contenders

11 Giygas - Earthbound

DANG it. The undulating background... the screaming face shape... the fetuses... the fatally wounded music... he's scary.


12 Shrieker - Resident Evil 6

Not only are there horrible shriek scary the thing that makes them more terrifying is they call in more zombies to you quickly over whelming you. - egnomac

13 Monster Ock - Spider-Man (2001 PS1)

Carnage may be freaky but Monster Ock is definitely the worst of your nightmares.

14 Crimson Heads - Resident Evil (Remake)
15 Mad Piano - Super Mario 64

Hey, look at that red coin. I'm going to grab i-OH NO, THE PIANO'S TRYING TO KILL ME! - MasterBeef

16 The Gatherers - Amnesia: The Dark Descent
17 Herobrine - Minecraft

He's so real he killed my sheep that were in my farm! 11! He set fire to my wooden house but I was smart enough to put it out with tnt

Little kids, out over a hoax. - Cyri

Who put Herobrine here? DELETE IT!



It's fake - ToddHoward

18 Pig Man - Manhunt

A chainsaw welding pig man hunting you down with his thingie hanging out need I say more. - egnomac

19 Enderman - Minecraft

Enderman are like Freddy +SlenderMAN with glowing creeping up on me

20 X Parasite - Metroid Fusion

The concept itself is horrific. They enter something's body, multiply inside them, and then kill the creature. Then they will become a clone of it. Even worse, they are smart - DarkShadows

21 Chris Walker - Outlast

He's big, fast...


22 Mr. X - Resident Evil 2
23 Splicers - Bioshock

There is nothing scarier than having a crazy disfigured man waving a gigantic shotgun at your face.

The bit where they come to life made me jump, and I nearly threw my mouse when the Sergeon burst out of the Cupboard thing.

24 Big Sister - Bioshock
25 Withered Bonnie - Five Nights at Freddy's

Between the puppet and this horrible thing fnaf 2 has caused me more sleepless nights than jason, freddy, and Michael myers combined.

My favorite fnaf character

26 Reaper Bird - Undertale

Easily the most disturbing Amalgamate besides Snowdrake's Mother. - xandermartin98

27 Stalkers - Dead Space 2
28 Flood - Halo

Apparently no one on this list has seen the Flood. These little devils insert a long tentacle thing into the back of your neck, which then twists around your spine, taking control of your nervous system, giving them full and undeniable access to your memories. You feel them as they sift through all your memories, discarding those that aren't useful to the Gravemind, until you're entirely flood, no longer human. Guess what? You can try to scream, but they won't let you. They also look pretty terrifying, as they bend their host's heads into natural positions and mutilate the rest of their body. Finally, a single Flood spore can fall an entire planet. Read, an entire civilization. They remind me of the necromorphs, except the Flood are scary even you're the Master Chief. Isaac Clarke is awesome, but he is no Spartan II. - MasterBeef

One thing that few know is that flood try to keep their hosts alive as long as possible! The victims know what is happening! The can feel the pain! the can feel their bones liquifying! They know what they are being turned into! But they are powerless to stop it.

The flood are the only parasites in video games that scare me.

The top three things in video games:
#1: the flood, halo
#2: endermen, Minecraft
#3: skirmishers, halo reach

29 The Desire Dog and The Amalgamate - Radiation's Halloween Hack

The Desire Dog is a disgusting tentacle rape monster with a creepy-as-hell battle theme.

The Amalgamate is a nearly indescribable THING with a freakishly fitting battle theme.

30 Nemesis - Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

You joking, right? Nemesis is by far the most terrifying villain in gaming history, and who says otherwise didn't play the game at all.

31 Snowdrake's Mother - Undertale

This is SO DISTURBING! Her music is broke, her attacks are so weak, and she keeps calling out "snowy...". Need I say more?

32 Phanto - Super Mario Bros 2

These masks scared the fluff out of me whenever I was playing Super Mario Bros. 2. Them things are scarier in Super Mario Advance then in the previous games.

And they should be in #1 because they look like they are laughing at you with evil eyes while chasing you with that key.

Not Mario... The Phanto mask is Frightening.

Unceasing bast who doesn't stop until you use the key. - MasterBeef

33 Big Daddy - Bioshock

He is not scary

34 Skulltulas - Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I agree with that! Skulltulas from Ocarina of Time- Skyward Sword scared the heck out of me! Hope they're not in the new Zelda Games, because they're scary as heck!

Especially in Skyward Sword. One time, in the Ancient Cistern, a web was blocking the path forward, but I didn't see the skulltula on it. So, I started cutting the webs to get through. In Skyward Sword, unlike other Zeldas, the Skulltulas are on webs and will move towards you when you start slicing the webs. I just saw this huge spider suddenly come up on screen and it scared me. All the more satisfying to fatal blow it.

It's a spider with a skull on it...'enough said. - OnyxDash

35 Colmillos - Resident Evil 4
36 Bloaters - The Last of Us
37 The Witch - Left 4 Dead

She is SCARY! First if you startle her she runs for you until she gets you or is killed and she screams the ENTIRE time shes running and crys when not add the spoiler ester egg from payday two where she jump scares you on top of that if you play on realism SHES A ONE 1 HIT KILL

AHH! - MasterBeef

38 Servant Brute - Amnesia the Dark Descent

This cute creature should be on #1.

39 SA-X - Metroid Fusion
40 Ultimate Chimera - Mother 3

You can't kill it, but it can ALWAYS kill you. Just running into it is all it takes. - Synchronocity

41 Deathclaw - Fallout series

Ever seen something that made you go the other direction? This guy is one of those.


42 Lickers - Resident Evil 2

Especially the part were one crashes trough the glass in one of the rooms. - egnomac

43 Gibdos - Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
44 Wall Master - Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I walk into the room just minding my business. I cut through all the other enemies in the room with ease when I hear a loud scream and see a giant hand grabbing me and carrying me back to the start. this ones gonna scare you for a long long time.

The Enderman... Really scary especially in The End! When you look at him, he SCREAMS! (Only on the PC. ) And he runs fast and takes a lot of damage. When I tried to hit him with my diamond sword but he teleports away and then teleported behind you! Scary!

45 Knaaren - Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc

These things... ARGH. You cannot kill them, they can kill you in a few hits. The quotes they say. "Skin him! ", for example. And when they chase, a scary piece of music plays

46 Bouldergeist - Super Mario Galaxy

Best boss in super Mario galaxy

He creeped out the first time I saw him until I kicked his ass

47 Waterwraith - Pikmin 2

YES. After 5 minutes of being in any sub level in the submerged castle, he falls, roars, and starts chasing you (I usually stuck Louie next to the hole leading to the next level while Olimar hunted down the treasure, so when it came down I could get the hell out of there). When I first saw him as a 9 year old, I turned off my Wii and went into the other room with my Dad thoroughly disturbed.

I was going to put this on the list, but you beat me to it.

48 Water - Sonic Series

Really? Water isn't that scary, but it can kill sonic in one hit

Who the heck is water

I agree because of the music that plays if you start to drown. water isn't an enemy, but it induces enough fear for all the other enemies in sonic.

49 Freddy Fazbear - Five Nights at Freddy's Freddy Fazbear (originally known as Freddybear, as seen in the Kickstarter) is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

He's not scary at all. Just annoying. Just like his fanbase. But I like the SMG4 version though. - OnyxDash


Lady Kaycee (my made up animatronic) is scarier.
I'm never scared of him.


50 Sprung Trap - Five Nights at Freddy's 3
