10 Scariest Characters In Nintendo Games


Nintendo is usually known for creating cute and lovable characters that make some of the best stuffed animals imaginable, but Nintendo systems actually include some pretty scary characters. They may not be the scariest characters to have appeared in gaming history, but they still manage to hold onto some of their scare factors.

Some games on this list will be surprising, as they were exclusive titles for Nintendo consoles that had gone under the radar, especially when it comes to the survival horror game genre. These characters are from the entire wide discography that Nintendo has had exclusively.


10/10 Boo – New Super Mario Bros 2

Boo has appeared in many Super Mario games since his creation in Super Mario Bros. 3. Most of the time he has two forms, one is usually a cute and shy form and the other is a somewhat creepy goofy face that will chase after Mario. if he. he looks away. However, The Boo in New Super Mario Bros. 2 is terrifying.

The Boo has puffy cheeks and his eyes sing deep into his face, making him look like the ghost of a sleep-deprived serial killer. This Boo is not a pretty sight and, if he hadn’t had such a slow pace in the game, he could have added a lot more suspense to Super Mario World 2.

9/10 The Shadow/Spirit of the Hero – The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The hero’s shadow or spirit is actually Link from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, but he lives on as a spirit who has regrets for not being able to pass on the lessons he learned. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, he is able to live out his dreams and train Link from that timeline so that he is strong enough to defeat Ganondorf.

The scariest part about this spirit, which is also known as The Hero’s Shade, is that it appears as the rotting spectral remains of the Hero of Time version of Link.

8/10 The Grudge – Ju-On: The Grudge

The Grudge is scary in the movies, and the Wii exclusive game Ju-On: The Grudge brought this terrifying ghost into the playable realm of survival horror. The only thing that would have made this game really scary would be if it had actually worked controls. Due to the game’s poor controls, many scary moments feel unfair.

The Grudge in the game’s design doesn’t compare graphically to many games today, but the way the game sets up the scares will eventually give the player one of them.

7/10 Omega Metroid – Metroid: Return of Samus

Omega Metroid’s design in Metroid: Samus Returns looks like a cross between a star-nosed mole and a horrendous giant alien creature that eats human flesh every two hours. It doesn’t beat around the bush and in Metroid: Samus Returns this boss is back with new punches. In older titles, the boss mainly clawed and did different tail attacks on Samus, but now she has different laser attacks.

The laser can be an additional stressor in battle, as the player will have to learn to read telegraphs for the different laser attacks. Its giant teeth shooting out of its mouth create the same unsettling terror that the discovery of a new deep-sea fish induces.

6/10 Krossbones – Donkey Kong 64

Krossbones in Donkey Kong 64 are one of the scariest enemies in any of the Donkey Kong games, which is saying a lot because some Donkey Kong games feature crocodile bone ghosts. The creepiest thing about this enemy is that he uses part of himself to attack enemies.

Krossbones will use one of his bones with a nail to deal damage. Krossbones also loses bones every time he is hit. His glowing red eyes also cause discomfort as the 3D rendering of the model is off-putting.

5/10 Courage – Bayonetta 2

Valor in Bayonetta 2, like many bosses in the Bayonetta series, becomes increasingly terrifying as the player continues to fight him. The boss begins as a headless angel holding his smooth porcelain head as a shield. As the player deals more damage to the boss, more parts of it will continue to break off.

The clean image the boss initially had will slowly start to get destroyed. The player will slowly peel off the outer shell of the boss, revealing the highly demonic appearance the boss has beneath his skin and armor.

4/10 Coco – Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Coco in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is really creepy as she says she wants to be an astronaut but nothing she has in her house would express that. Her house is boring with sand walls, stone decoration and some pots that she has placed around her room. She also claims to be a rabbit with a normal personality, but more like a rabbit shell.

She’s super creepy due to her deep, dark facial features, but she’s also kind of cute since she’ll be constantly reading around town. Hearing Coco speak in animal crossing dialogue can also be scary due to the way she looks combined with the otherworldly sounds.

3/10 Octostump Redux – Splatoon 2

Octostump Redux in Splatoon 2 is Octostump’s second appearance in the Splatoon series, but this time this boss returns as if possessed by demons. He has eyes that radiate blue irises surrounded by black sclera, the part of the eye that is supposed to be white.

The boss also appears to have a bomb strapped to the middle of his face, giving him a cybergenetic feel. He is not a boss that is extremely difficult to take down in the game, but one that stands out because of how eerily different his design is.

2/10 Soul of Marx – Kirby Super Star Ultra

For players who are afraid of clowns, Kirby Super Star Ultra’s Marx Soul will give off a sense of awkwardness. The boss has different forms where he will do different attacks and create exaggerated faces. The boss will be quick to attack him and will keep changing his form to try and take out Kirby.

The boss has a lot of shape shifts that seem weirdly creepy. Some of them include Marx Soul splitting his face in half and then turning into a jelly that attacks the player. Right before the boss uses his arrow attack has to be the scariest appearance of him, as the boss sits in shock with his side profile ready to shoot everything he has at Kirby.

1/10 Black Guardian – Eternal Darkness: Requiem for Sanity

Black Guardian in Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem already begins as a terrifying beast that towers over the character in the game. He looks like a demonic alien entity that is preparing to call down evil on the world. He will do different spells against the player and will do everything in his power to avoid being defeated.

The part of the boss that gets scarier is when the player needs to start dodging the different giant stomps that the gigantic squid-like entity releases. Players will want to be careful to dodge these attacks or face the consequences of their character taking a large amount of damage.
