25 Most Annoying Video Game Characters #5 – #1
Making Super Mario World 2 about Yoshi was a risky choice but not a bad idea. Giving the whole game a storybook feel was also risky but wasn’t really a bad idea. But forcing the player to put up with Baby Mario’s incessant cries every time Yoshi would get hit might have been the worst idea imaginable. Not to mention, Baby Mario has been in plenty of games with regular Mario, and they only ever explained it once! Either this is some sort of weird time paradox or Baby Mario is a phony.
No Slippy, I will not save your ass again! You are a highly skilled trained fighter pilot flying a space ship. What’s wrong with you? Falco is doing just fine. Peppy is doing ok and he has one foot in the grave already! Just drop a bomb. Shoot your lasers. Do a barrel roll for all we care. Just stop bugging us and be competent at your job.
I probably don’t have to explain why Navi is so annoying. But, just in case you forgot, here’s a bit of a reminder. “HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN! HEY LISTEN!” Do you think she deserves slot number 3 yet?
There’s just something infuriating about Pokemon Trainers and their attitudes toward Pokemon battles. Oops, I made eye contact with you, I guess we have to have superpowered magical cock fights now! What’s really annoying is the creepiness of it all. A three year-old kid will sick his lethal flame dog on you, and then cry when you defeat it in self-defense… and then you’ll take his money… and then you’ll walk three steps and an eighty year-old man will try and take your money. What the heck is wrong with these people!?
Finally, the most annoying video game character of all time is no surprise to anyone, the Duck Hunt Dog. He’s the poster boy for this article and perhaps the very first video game character to ever laugh at your failure. He’s everything that is bad with sportsmanship, hunting, and dog-ownership. Maybe you were just having a bad day. Maybe your light gun was broken. It didn’t matter because as long as you missed your ducks, this little jerk would pop up out of the grass and laugh at you. Oh, and if you shot a duck, he would grab it by the neck and keep it for himself! You actually see him picking up the ducks with his paws! Hey dog, why don’t you try picking up a rifle if it’s so easy? Congrats on being the Most Annoying Video Game Character.
