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!

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.

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.

4 Dry Bone (Super Mario Bros 3) Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

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.

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!

6 The Mad Piano (Super Mario 64)

How is this not #1? Out of no where, a Piano starts screaming at you and jumping around trying to eat you. This and phanto scare me the most.

7 Swooper (Super Mario World)

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

Ok,I have an idea on putting swooped on the top ten annoying enemies but still,BATS!? I love them but this one is just... UGH! So I hate this enemy all though I never played mario before

8 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.

9 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.

10 Mimi (Super Paper Mario)

Super Paper Mario is by far my favorite Mario game, but Mimi terrifies me. The way her neck cracks and eyes turn big as she's transforming is really disturbing. She then spouts mechanical-looking spider legs from her upturned face, which only has a mouth. Her body hangs limp from her neck (? ) Yeah, she still scares me.

The Contenders
11 Eerie (Super Mario World)

It is a spooky ghost found in haunted houses. There are sometimes a pack of them and they can fly in wobbly lines.

12 Eel (Super Mario 64)
13 Gringill (Super Mario Galaxy & Sequel)

When I played the games as a kid. I never wanted to play the water stages whenever I saw the Gringills. Since I found out I had to do stuff with them in it to 100% both games, I got pissed and did it anyway. The first time I saw one though, I threw up. If you talk about Gringills today, they're scarier than Pennywise

Just hate it, worst thing in Mario history, kill it with fire already, it deserves to die, it should never be in other mario games after.

Unagi? Get outta here. There's a good reason these things never appeared again since Mario Galaxy 2. Eldritch looking asses

14 Underhand (Super Paper Mario)

It's a hand in a death river. Do I need to go on

15 Unagi (Super Mario 64)

Sounds terrifying, plus, I never played Super Mario 64...

16 Ninji (Super Mario Bros 2)

This is a small black creature that attacks like a ninja. It's fangs make it look more scary!

17 Chain-Chomp (Super Mario Bros. 3) Chain Chomps, known as Wanwan in Japan, are metal, barking ball-and-chain like creatures that are restrained by Chains and are a main enemy in the Mario franchise.
18 Chain Chomp (Super Mario 64) Chain Chomps, known as Wanwan in Japan, are metal, barking ball-and-chain like creatures that are restrained by Chains and are a main enemy in the Mario franchise.

These were made beacause of Miomotomo's nightmares. (Sorry if I didn't spell his name properly.) Thanks, for making your nightmares go into ours. (It's just a dog).

New Player: Think this will be easy as the first level in Mario games are. Punch a Goomba, Collect a coin, Do whatever. Let's move on. A bomb. Oh no! Let's run away.

Player Dies.

19 Goomba (Fan Art) Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.
20 Bubba (Super Mario Sunshine)
21 Cheep Chomp (Super Mario 64)
22 Thwomp (Super Mario Bros. 3)

The old design of the thwomp looks horrifying for some reason...

23 Unagi Eel (Super Mario Odyssey)
24 Eerie Staircase (Luigi's Mansion)

Holy crap, this must've probably been the nightmare fuel of many childhoods. His roar was legit enough to make you close your 3DS when playing this game.

25 Gargantua Blargg (Yoshi's Island)
