In every game, there are always those enemies that are annoying. They may not necessarily be hard but they're annoying.
No medusa heads?
That Robot Nancy and Seth also deserve honorable mentions.
Sorry but toad in mariokart is the most annoying person ever. That crazy mocking laugh of his still haunts my dreams. Yes I totally agree about eggplant wizard. Just about as hard as alien wizards.
CastleVania Medusa Heads *DEFINITELY* should be on that list.
Bats in Ninja Gaiden...... THE HORROR! -CadDad
No way this list doesn't have Medusa Heads. Has anyone on this staff even played Castlevania? I mean the freaking head can go though walls and can manage to get to the exact space where you can't hit them but they can hit you. ...and don't even get me started on the gold medusa heads in symphony of the night that turn you into stone when they hit you...
there is ALOT of those but the last that i ran into was some new type of feral ghouls in Fallout 3 DLC ( Point lookout ) damn those are Annoying and hard to kill too
I don't think they are capable of making a list that goes past the PS1.
Why would they? They're called Old Wizard for a reason, man. :)
and you can collectively hear the admins singing "LA LA LAAAA I CAN'T HEAR YOU... LA LA LAAAA" with their hands over their ears.
Seriously. Nintendo is all they know over there. 12
No bad guys from Ghosts n' Goblins?
Those birds should've been on here for sure.
The Demons were even worse.
wot about the skeletons from golden axe on the master system.or was that the mega drive? but my vote for the most annoying video game enemies has to be ps3 fans.
OMG no Runners from Contra? Those guys were the worst!
The Silver Truck! Epic!
For my money the bloopers were the most annoying enemies from Mario Brothers. Although I agree 100% about the Eggplant Wizard.
How is Lakitu on here? That guy was easy pickins.
What a stupid list. Try playing some games past the SNES, would ya?
Dude... They're a site that focuses on older games. That's just how they are. Get over it! If you had a site that focused on something, would you want crap about what you SHOULD be focusing on?
Then it should be call most annoying RETRO video game enemies.
Lakitu was hard as heck.
Spinys were more annoying than Lakitu himself.
What about that Sun from Level 2 in SMB3? Unless you flew, that guy was an annoying SOB.
haha. Eggplant Wizard. I don't think I ever got to him. I just remember him from that cartoon. Kid Icarus was too damn hard to even get that far!
Goombas to me have always been annoying. Easy to kill yes, but every once in a while you'd miss time your jump and get whacked by one. I think what made it annoying was how really easy they are to kill but still somehow manage to get you sometimes.
Goombas! What?! They're never difficult to beat!
some gow moments depending on difficulty can cause a lot of headaches XD of course, I may only think of those right now cuz they're still fresh in my mind but still, I dont think i've ever been more frustrated lol
Telly, what a bastard lol, also the infinite met-tools on MM games...
I cannot stand the guys in the first God of War that like go underground in shadow form and own you. They're pretty good in 2 and 3, but in the frost one, there's seriously nothing you can do. Lets not forget the deathblows in Fallout 3. And there are TONS in Ninja Gaiden Sigma.
How bout that doosh at the end of kz2? Not hard, but annoying as hell. Alma from ninja gaiden was pretty rough too.
The eagles from Ninja Gaiden, always chasing you around and knocking you off your platform.
Finally a list for gamers that have been around for a few generations.
Yan Kut-Ku (Monster Hunter Series), if ever there was a AI Troll, this is it. Fast, Spits fire, Fliest, pecks, charges... and on to of all that, the disrespectful bugger looks like a chicken! Feral Ghoul Reaver (Fallout 3), or whichever throws globs of radioactive waste at you. They are so much tougher than any other Ghoul (even the ones that glow FFS!), they're fast, and strip about a 1/4 of your health with each hit. At lower levels they're impossible, but even at level 25 they take ages to put down - you will literally put more lead in his body than his mass should allow!
hmmm... i would have to agree with those that said the castlevania medusa heads. Any level with them flying around is a pain in the butt. For me, the only time i ever threw my controller with rage was trying to beat the devil and angel cars in ridge racer revolution on playstation 1... now when i think about it, i don't even know how i beat them, i think i just got lucky blocking them or something. Also thumbs up to the person that mentioned kid icarus eggplant wizard... hell kid icarus was tough as nails, until you had the mirror shield and everything else! Geez so many games are coming back to me now. Those moths in kung fu on NES, the metroids in Metroid 1, the bad plants in bonks(turbografx), molboro's in any Final fantasy, the darktroopers(those skeletal terminator ones) in darkforces, the worms in dune 2, the little pygmy blow dart peeps in diablo 2, god the list goes on. :P Oh and this doesn't count as an enemy but was equally annoying... the asteroid/mine fields in wing commanders 1 and 2.
Anything in Ghosts & Goblins.
I got throw almost the entire Kingdom Hearts II game before they threw in a bad guy with a differnt fighting system based only on luck. Why did I even bother leveling up till then? I never beat the character and never beat the game. Lame!
That stupid dog from Duck Hunt on the NES... Always laughing at me and mocking me. And no matter how mad I got, I couldn't shoot him.
He'd come out with a cast and crutch and be really upset. I wish Nintendo was better about porting their arcade stuff to the NES. I loved the bonus level on Excitebike too.
How can I kill Maneaters
The wizards in Zelda 1. They fly fast and it takes so many hits to kill them.
