The world of video games is filled with a myriad of amazing heroes and charismatic enemies, some of them even legendary, that we like to come back to any chance we get in order to relax and have a good time. However, we sometimes encounter characters that will annoy us as soon as they appear.
Whether it is because of their limited set of action, their voice or the overall character that they portray, some of them became famous specifically because of their ability to make you want to ragequit. We can argue that some of these make their respective games more interesting but most of the time we just want them gone altogether. Here is a list of our most annoying video game characters. Feel free to add your own in the comment section!
Baby Mario, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island
Baby versions of original characters seem to be a trend in the Super Mario Universe, mostly appearing in the Yoshi series. Baby Mario’s first appearance comes from Yoshi’s Island featuring as part of a story where Yoshi has to get them to safety and protect them after the stork failed to deliver them to their parents. However, Yoshi loses the babies as soon as he’s touched by an enemy, which makes for a very long and annoying cry until you catch the baby again. It becomes old really fast, making this one of the most annoying Mario characters ever.
Donald Duck, Kingdom Hearts
The choices of allies you can get in Kingdom Hearts gets pretty big over time as you can have Aladdin, Tarzan or Peter Pan by your side in combat. However, the original tandem tagging along with the hero, Sora, is composed of Donald and Goofy, with Donald as the healer. Unfortunately Donald doesn’t do much healing as he always dies in the first couple of minutes while only having healed you at the very same moment you drink your own potion.
Nova, Heroes Of The Storm
You would expect that a HotS character that is almost invisible and is able to take you down before you can even realise it would be a fun one to play as. Playing against her one-shots and stealth can be very annoying, especially when you are inexperienced.
Ashley, Resident Evil 4
It could be because protecting a character is not necessarily the funniest part of a zombie game or it could be because playing as her offers little to no fun, considering her limited abilities and overall weakness. However, lots will argue that what makes Ashley annoying is the way that she runs her mouth all day and keeps putting herself in danger. If she really has to be such a useless character, at least she could do her best to tag along in silence.
