Top 10 Worst Water Levels in Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Great Bay Temple - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Why is this even on this list. Using the Zora mask makes Young Link a fantastic swimmer. He can also attack with his fins for a large distance. What was the point?

HA HA HA you thought it would be the minus world or water temple but no you need to take the time to play this game and get stuck for hours without end it seems beating this temple

2 Atlantica - Kingdom Hearts 2

Come on, the Great Bay Temple was awesome! If you were stupid enough to play it on the Virtual Console, then I don't feel sorry for you. As for Atlantica, it's just a quicktime event for five songs with somewhat disturbing imagery.

3 Water Dam - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

This dam level... hehehe. But whatever, allow me to describe from what I've seen on the internet:
Tight time limit to defuse multiple bombs
Electric obstacles everywhere
Wonky controls
Slow swimming

That seaweed. Dam. Dam it's hard.

Play this and find out no matter how much you listen to it on the internet it would help us all if you dust off your nes or buy one if you have to download it I don't care to really you need to play this level to kno what people are really talking about

4 Mount Kazai - Skies of Arcadia
5 Great Sea - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
6 The Minus World - Super Mario Bros.

It's endless touture until you reset the system

7 Maridia - Super Metroid

Instant letdown with all the unfair platforming to the grand finally of disappointment.

I can't tell you how many time's I got lost in this level imagine the worst maze level gaming has to offer now multiply that times 9000 partial pun intended

8 Water Temple - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Definitely the worst ever temple of all-time. In order to swim underwater, uses the Iron Boots. In order to go back up, remove the Iron Boots, and goes vice versa.

This does not deserve the golden pedistal of shame on worst water levels I have memorized every singel part of the map and it's not hard at all there are much darker waters to dive into

9 Labyrinth Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

Without question this is the worst sonic level/water level in history of gaming. act 1 and 2 are easy in my opinion but then there's act 3! this act sucks so much because of all the super tedious traps and sonic. he can't swim so he moves really really slowly and it messes with the best mechanic. also the very bad drowning mechanics + very irritating drowning music equals a cheap challenge. but wait there is more. because the level is like a maze. you will have so much trouble navigating that it becomes 2x the chore to beat and still manages to get worse. the beggining of act 3 is such a super mega tedium jump. all this trouble leads up to the hardest boss in the game. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!

In Japan, people consider four synonymous with death, and is the case in level 4, the Labyrinth Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog because this is where all the fun of the game goes to die. You move slowly in the water and Sonic can hold is breath for only so long, meaning you have to find air supply bubbles to reset the timer or get out of the water before he drowns. If you're looking for grounds for preferring Mario games over Sonic games, how their water levels played is more than enough.

10 Submerged Castle - Pikmin 2

It's dark and dank as hell, the music gives you the heebie jeebies, you can only bring blue pikmin in (despite having all four elemental traps), the treasures are next to worthless, and there's the Waterwraith. Unlike the rest of the bosses that stay on the final floor, this monster will appear on your current floor if you stay there too long. He's immune to almost all attacks and he can steam roll even a full squad of 100 pikmin if given the chance. Until you successfully kill him on the final floor, he will continue to hunt you down.

Pretty much every water level in pikmin was hell


WATERWRAITH. That is all.

The Contenders
11 Aquas - Star Fox 64

If you don't know the horrors of this water level why are you on this list

12 Rusty Bucket Bay - Banjo-Kazooie

That oily Water

13 The Combination - Conker's Bad Fur Day

You know what part this is the part where you have to change the battery constantly, you know, that part in Bat's Tower

14 Hydro City - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Constantly going for air

15 Pig Dipper - Angry Birds Space
16 World 3 (Water World) - Super Mario Bros. 3
17 World 7-4 - Super Mario Bros 3

This is my fourth worst water level between Great Bay Temple, THAT DAMN DAM LEVEL and 'shudders' labyrinth zone. first, this is an auto scroll level second, blooper nannies, AND THE SWARM OF JELECTROS, well what if this was combined with 'shudders' labyrinth zone. so in conclusion this is hard water level. P.S pipe maze level 4 + labyrinth zone = torture

18 Lost World - Sonic Adventure

Its pain in the butt. the snake segment are the most horrible

19 Lost World - Adventure
20 Sea Shell Shenanigans - Crash Bandicoot the Wrath of Cortex
21 Coral Canyon - Crash Bandicoot the Wrath of Cortex
