For those of you that have hair, these are the characters that made you want to pull it. A voice like fingernails on a chalkboard, or someone with the amount of intelligence as the girl that gets killed in a horror film, these are the worst of the worst…
“Who is the Most Annoying Video Game Character?“
The Timely Mage
Does every angry troll and snot-nosed brat in multiplayer games count? No? Well there are certainly a lot of irksome characters out there especially in JRPGs where you have a large roster of characters you run into and play. In fact a lot of the time it’s the hero who can be most annoying because they start off really immature and your only hope for sanity is that they grow up before the game ends. While a lot of the Final Fantasy protagonists got probs I’d say Lightning takes the cake. She combines the emo pain-in-the-butt nature of Cloud, the anti-social prudish attitude of Squall, and mixes in her own brand of arrogant irrational stupidity with little-to-no redemption to show for it in the end.
The Black Humor Mage
Slippy the Toad from Star Fox 64 has to be the most annoying video game character. He is the equivalent of that kid relative who always asks to play Smash Bros. with you, but isn’t good and whines that you have to let him win. Slippy has one of the most annoying voices in video games, he can’t take care of himself, and he complains when you hit one his targets that he takes an eternity to kill. I can’t stand him!
The Rage Mage
Guys, guys, guys. All of your answers are nothing compared to the soul-deadening, lifeless whine of the hell-fairy known as Navi. It was your own personal condescending tutorial, complete with shrill, grating soundbites. Whenever I hear someone say “Hey, listen!” to this day, it makes me want to force feed myself my own head.
The Green Screen Mage
The Riddler in Arkham Knight. I AM PRETTY SURE I HAVE MADE MY FEELINGS CLEAR HERE!!!!!!! The little pest sits and taunts you and taunts you and taunts you. And it’s not even the taunts you can rebut. It’s the lol your stupid cause your stupid trolololol hahahahah I win cause your liek so dumb. Such a dumbhead. It’s just… I can’t handle the type of insulting that has no basis to it and won’t hear any arguments and just is so stupid and he doesn’t stop…
The White Out Mage
T.T. from Diddy Kong Racing. His voice is really annoying and you hear it throughout the whole game as you’re racing. Well, it’s not so much that he has an annoying voice it’s just his timing is obnoxious, and his repetition make your ears bleed. When you have to do the timed race and beat his sorry butt, he just keeps warning you about time being up (or something like that). Stupid reverb-echo to his voice!
The Well-Red Mage
I’ve been tremendously annoyed by Pikachu on the Smash Bros. series of games. You think Kirby is annoying with his taunt-camping “Hiyiyi!”? Pikachu players (most of them I’ve encountered at least) camp in a corner and spam their attacks. This was the worst on the N64 game.
