Video game characters you hate, hate, HATE!

edited March 2007 in Games and Technology
I was playing King of Fighters '98 for an assignment, and was having a lot of fun with it... that is, until I hit a brick wall in the form of an obnoxious loli pop singer named Athena Asamiya. I never liked this character, and she only seems to get more overpowered and irritating with every new game in the series. If she wants to win a match, she'll do it, sometimes taking out all three of your team members with her teleporting and energy hurling antics. The most terrifying weapon in her arsenal, of course, is her high-pitched, Japanese accented voice which perfectly accentuates her hellishly annoying moves. "Ti-gah BAAAAAU! Ti-gah BAAAAAU!" she squeals as she pounds your fighters into a gritty paste. For my money, she's the most infuriating Japanese schoolgirl this side of the dumb bitch who shouts "SIT, Inuyasha!" every damn day on Adult Swim.

So, are there any video game characters that really get under your skin? You know, characters that somehow manage to find their way into every sequel of an otherwise great series despite their unrelenting aggravation?

    I found Bao and Malin even more annoying, although Asamiya's most recent soundbytes make me bite controllers.

    Hmm, I need to think about all the whiny RPG NPCs that have gotten up my nose over the years. I'm sure there's a recent encounter that made me cry hot tears of angsty nerd-rage.

    Street Fighter II Turbo Ryu CPU.

    Nothing but hadokens! If you get close, jump kick followed by a sweep. He will do the sweep regardless of how close you are.

    It just seems no matter what I do, he will always drain me of a few continues. Even tried using M. Bison and nothing but his LK, which beats Ryu's hadoken in terms of speed getting it off and connecting, but Ryu still beats me. %^*&!

    Those Z-ish blocks in tetris. I mean come on. Those things suck. They're so akwardly shaped and you never get the right one when you need it. You always get the other one that goes in the opposite direction. Yet they come back in every damn tetris game.

    Eddie Gordo in Tekten Tag. Everyone plays him the exact same way where they just mash buttons and he becomes a break dancing, whirling death machine. Basically the one character that is always included in a fighting game that you just wish was not there because they are too easy to play or too fast compared to the other character (Lei in Virtua Fighter is kind of a combination of the two).

    Most of the cast in Xenosaga and Star Ocean 3. (this whole generation's jrpg's didn't go over to well with me, maybe it's just me.) Also, I love the Zelda games, but I really don't like Link as a character.

    I think he ment he wasn't the princess, and that she was actually in another castle. :P j/k

    The Plagas in Resident Evil 4. When I blow your head off, you should not grow another one.

    And then I think, oh, I'll just shoot up the torso instead of getting headshots so the Plagas dies? Because that's where it is, right?

    Well, yes, but apparently that doesn't matter.

    That stupid little bug in Okami. I was so pissed off when it escaped from the wolf's mouth and didn't get eaten alive, would of made the rest of the time I played that game a lot more bareable.

    Another vote for Shadow, the character design is pretty awesome, but the actual character sucks all kinds of ass.

    I think I would like her more if the game didn't force you into this sort of relationship with her. If there was more of a Deus Ex/free choice kind of thing going on then I would probably find her more tolerable, but I found it so frustrating having to sit through these sappy scenes with her all the time

    I hate that asshole. It really makes me wonder what the tone of the game is, in Japanese. I wanted this game to be anything but "zany" but it IS more often than not.

    not really, it started off with Carnivore saying all sonic franchise characters excluding Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. then hoodie13 raised the counterpoint of E-101Beta, as this is a sonic franchise character who is awesome, but lies outside of the "Sonic/Tails/Knuckles" excepted group of decent characters. I then suggested some futher examples of more awesome Sonic characters.
