Top 10 Most Frightening Video Game Bosses (with videos!)
Video game bosses are almost always scary, but there are some especially frightening ones I'd prefer not to remember... except on a day like this. Below are my picks, with videos and everything.
10. Legion – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (and other installments of the series)
A giant… floating… orb.. OF FEATURLESS BODIES! Overall, this thing is pretty gross looking, and if I ever imagine myself after a night of binge drinking, waking up in early dawn and seeing this thing at my doorstep, I'd probably run to my closet and never come out, nursing my shotgun and scotch until the army arrived. In reality, this thing would be frightening, but the first time I faced it in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night I was happily and grossly appalled. This is why the corpse-dripping Legion kick starts our list. If not so scary from sheer grotesque factor.
9 - The Sorrow – Metal Gear Solid 3
Overall, a creepfest of a character. The Sorrow wasn't your kind of Emo kid who had some problems and then complained about them on the internet, then got cyber-bullied, cried a bit more, then wrote his worries out in a terrible song nobody would listen to. The Sorrow took all that went wrong in life and became something terrible and ghastly - and well, helpful in his own way. The Sorrow may not really be a "boss", but the transcendental walk Snake takes down a river (put on by The Sorrow) is creepy enough to have him on this list.
8. Lord Saddler – Resident Evil 4
Creepy, powerful, strong – this guy transforms into one of the most grotesque things I've ever witnessed. It's like – imagine yourself walking down a street one night… maybe in the woods… and this thing comes at you out of the woods - or you go down into your basement to check on that faulty water heater, and BAM! Lord Saddler. Yeah, see? Scary.
7. The Tormentor – Dead Space 2
Holy crapola! What has two legs and is bent on tearing you limb from limb? The Tormentor from Dead Space 2, that's who. I really would like to see a couple of guys or gals rig a Tormentor costume up for Halloween and go to a club and act casual... or just prowl neighborhood streets.
6. Sinistar – From… Sinistar
What? You don't think some retro arcade monster is scary?? Let me tell YOU a story, my friend. I was six years old, playing Sinistar. Not really understanding the game, nor why there was some freaky giant face plastered on the side of the arcade cabinet... so, I am innocently flying around, shooting things in space, when suddenly I hear a crackled, distorted and booming voice telling me to RUN COWARD!!! Well, holy cow bells! I'll tell you what... that scared the CRAP out of me. To this day, I'll be driving on a highway late at night, the road empty, vast darkness around me, and I know I'll just hear I AM SINISTAR and suddenly Sinistar will come out of nowhere and eat me. True story, bro.
