The games industry is able to create memorable elements in several fields, such as soundtrack, ambiance and even the characters that integrate the plot of an adventure. However, sometimes certain ideas can backfire, especially when it comes to some NPCs you need to interact with.

Shoo, back!  The 10 most annoying characters in games

With that in mind, we’ve prepared a list with ten boring characters from the game world (from a ratio that can be much bigger) that appear next randomly and in no order of importance.

1. Ashley (Resident Evil 4)

Shoo, back!  The 10 most annoying characters in games

Some games have characters that must be helped and, in return, you gain good support along the way. That’s unfortunately not the case with Ashley Graham: the president’s daughter in Resident Evil 4. She’s a dead weight and irritating to Leon and, from time to time, makes the player stop and wonder where the hell she’s gotten herself — after all, it must be protected from the dangers encountered along the way.

2. Elise (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Elise is definitely a somewhat weird character for the Sonic universe. In addition to being human, her romance with the protagonist is way off the curve. In the end, she’s someone who should be saved and generate some of the weirdest and perhaps even unnecessary moments in the entire series (not to mention the fact that she’s not the best example of charisma).

3. Navi (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Nintendo’s idea may have been a good one with the inclusion of a character to assist Link on his journey in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but for many it hurts more than anything else. Not that her tips are bad (especially for newcomers to the series), but listening to “Hey, listen!” from beginning to end the adventure is actually a bit much, especially when considering that Navi is one of the few that speaks in the entire title.

4. Micah (Red Dead Redemption 2)

This villain from Red Dead Redemption 2 is far from the idea of ​​a poorly constructed character or anything like that. In fact, the anger that many have at him is due to his treacherous behavior, as well as being a great liar and selfishness—especially when we look at all the actions he devised to destabilize Arthur Morgan and bring the law to the rear of the pack.

Let’s throw the first stone who didn’t show some kind of anger in Goldeneye 007’s multiplayer — and we’re not even talking about the fact that it’s entirely possible to observe the opponent’s footsteps looking at the shared screen, but the fights with those who chose Oddjob in the confrontations, an extremely agile and short guy, which made it very difficult to hit him and offered some advantages to whoever controlled him.

6. Mr. Resetti (Animal Crossing)

We understand the efforts of some companies to include characters to help the player at the beginning of the journey, but in certain situations many of them can be a real pain in the . Take the example of Mr. Resetti, who appears from time to time in Animal Crossing to remind you of the importance of saving the game, and may even falsely restart the journey to give the impression that all was lost because he didn’t remember the game. blessed save.

7. Medusa Head (Castlevania)

If you played Castlevania, you must have cursed (a lot) at Medusa Head. These pests were certainly created just to test your patience, as they always show up at the worst times. Are you going to jump to a distant platform? She will be there to get in the way. Have you reached a segment in which you have to take several jumps in a building that resembles a tower? Expect the “friendly” presence. Not to mention the fact that it can petrify the protagonist and, depending on the situation, cause an almost automatic death if it is hit in the sequence when entering this state.

8. Larval Stalker (Silent Hill)

These characters, at first, may not pose much of a threat in Silent Hill, as they are harmless and transparent. However, this idea goes down the drain when one of them decides — out of nowhere — to scream to make the player jump from the couch, chair or bed, proving that they were created only to provoke random scares.

9. Dog (Duck Hunt)

Duck Hunt is a relatively simple game with only two characters: the ducks and the dog, who appear to catch the birds or, what’s worse, laugh in the player’s face when they don’t do the job correctly and miss the shots. It might look cute at first, but it’s definitely capable of generating a bit of anger after a while.

Anyone who played Star Fox 64 will remember that every member of the team had a role. Falco was the most helpful in combat; Peppy acted as a kind of strategist and gave a lot of hints in the stages; and Slippy… well, poor little frog was screaming for help most of the time and at most would say something that was relevant in battle against a boss, but which the player would end up deducting shortly afterwards without the help.
