What would video games be without enemies to crush, shoot, and generally blast into oblivion? Sure not all video games contain enemies, but many do and you are required to get past them in order to finish the game. However, sometimes no matter how many bullets you fire or slash your sword, the bad guys just won’t drop. This isn’t a new phenomenon as games as far back as the 80s have pitted us against enemies that make us want to tear our hair out.
Baron Von Blubba – Bubble Bublle
An arcade classic, in bubble bobble you play as one of two dragons who has to navigate 100 levels to for your girlfriend. Naturally, levels get harder and the whole thing isn’t helped by the occasional appearance of Baron Non Blubba. He can teleport, move through walls and make things generally unpleasant for gamers who take too long to complete a level. Oh yeah, he’s also invincible so shooting at him does nothing but get you more frustrated.
Seth – Tomb Raider The Last Revelation
The fourth release in the extensive Tomb Raider game series, The Last Revelation contains all the various aspects you’d expect from a Laura Croft game. Skimpy outfit, numerous puzzles, strange locations to explore, it’s all here. Of course, there is invincible enemy as well which comes in the form of the Egyptian god, Seth. Making him more annoying is that he shoots blue-green stuff at you while you run around like a headless chicken. It turns out you can’t ever actually kill him. Instead, you must lock Seth away never getting the satisfaction of standing over his dead corpse.
Anubis – Zone Of The Enders
If you want to face a boss that constantly makes you wonder whether you’re playing the game right, then Zone of the Enders is for you. In the climactic battle you come up against Anubis, an advanced enemy that is 100 percent invincible no matter what you do. In fact, while you battle Anubis, it can cause harm to you while you just have to try and dodge attacks. The key is to buy enough time for the rest of the story to play out which eventually cease you escape. Ultimately, it has that scripted feel that annoys so many gamers out there.
Red Zingers – Donkey Kong Country 2
In the mid 1990s, Donkey Kong Country introduced us to the whole Donkey Kong storyline in a new and exciting way, complete with major graphics and sound upgrades. The sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2 continued that trend with the inclusion of fun levels, hard bosses and the annoying zingers. The standout among these oversized wasps were the red zingers. Unlike their yellow brothers, the red version were impossible to kill unless you had some TNT handy, but whoever did? More than a few of us screaming in frustration when our character touch these enemies and died as a result.
Zeus- God of War 2
Yes, we get it. Gods are Gods for a reason. That is, they are impossible to kill. In God of War 2, players found this out in a frustrating way when they battled against Zeus. When he wasn’t preaching down to you it was go time. You could swing with your weapons but just didn’t seem to do any good on this PlayStation 2 and three classic. Just when you thought you had him, he’d run away. Oh! He’s just so smug.
Phanto – Super Mario 2
Compare to the original Super Mario, the sequel was a pretty big change in gameplay, graphics and overall storyline. Sure, in the end took the cheap way out by making the whole thing a dream but we won’t get into that. Instead, we’ll focus on Phanto, an enemy who guards the keys strewn throughout the levels. Phanto comes to life whenever you grab a key and mercilessly swoops down to kill your player. You can’t kill him but you can make him temporarily go away by dropping the key.
Pyramid Head – Silent Hill 2
Ok, let’s face it, the Silent Hill games are creepy and you probably know plenty of people who won’t play them alone or at night. And there are those creatures and monsters throughout the game. One of the scariest and most annoying, is pyramid head in Silent Hill 2. As James Sunderland, you learn to fear pyramid head which, as it turns out is just a manifestation of your players guilt over his dead wife. But all that aside, he puts the fear into gamers because you just can’t seem to hurt this creature at all. He disappears with the sound of sirens in the distance but you can never get that satisfaction of killing him or it yourself.
The Sorrow – Metal Gear Solid 3
If you search around online, you can find more than a few forums where gamers ask how they can possibly beat Metal Gear Solid 3’s boss, The Sorrow. The short answer, you can’t. In fact, you technically have to die to get past him which sounds kind of strange. You see, The Sorrow is a ghost that summons the ghost of people you killed in the game to come attack you. You either have to drown yourself, or try and make it to the end of the river, past all the ghosts. Either way you die and you have to take a revival pill to continue on. Where are the Ghostbusters when you really need them?
Evil Otto – Berzerk
Yes, even in 1980, game developers were creating invincible enemies. In the case of the shooter Berserk, it came in the form of Evil Otto. You see, the developers figure the game wasn’t tough enough with you simply facing off against roaming laser firing robots and electrified walls. No, no, no, they added Evil Otto, who was an invincible smiley face that chased you across the room if the game thought you were doddling in an area for too long. The sight of him bouncing across the room cause panic in gamers and more than one person ran into a wall and died as they tried to escape that sinister smile.
The Xenomorph – Alien Isolation
In space, no one can hear you scream in frustration. There have been a lot of games released over the years which are based on the classic sci-fi alien franchise. The most recent of which, alien isolation, pits the player against a number of challenges in a terrifying environment with superb graphics and brilliant sound. Obviously, the main feature of all of this is the classic Xenomorph complete with invincibility. Sure you can scare it off and buy yourself some time but gamers quickly found, you can’t actually kill the alien unless you blow it out of the air lock into space.
