The most annoying games characters of all time

Comment on site articles.

Kersti from Paper Mario: Sticker Star is infuriating but is she the most annoying?

Have you played Paper Mario: Sticker Star yet? It's great fun, packed with brilliant stickers to collect and amusing dialogue. Yet we were not amused by Kersti, one of the many characters in videogame history who are meant to help you but do anything but. So irritating is Kersti with her 'stating-the-bleeding-obvious' advice, that she has made our list of the top ten most annoying characters in Nintendo games.

The most annoying games characters of all time

I also find the Hammer Bros. annoying as they have killed me many times & I find Peach annoying too not because she keeps getting kidnapped, she's just generally annoying.
Awesome friends they know who they are :wink:

What about the big fish from ballon fight?

But yeah, Arianna has got to be one of the most unlikeable characters ever

Slippy and Joey are really annoying, but what about the Zubats in the cave and dungeon levels in pokemon. They drive me insane!

I laugh at how you forgot some obvious choices.
Alec Trevelyan from Goldeneye just won't shut up.
Ashley from RE4 constantly screams "LEON!" and can't even defend herself.
Slippy only has an annoying voice, so he deserves to be lower.
Navi dosen't deserve to be on the list. Instead Keapora-Geabora does. You skip through his speeches (which are basically what Navi said :P) only for them to start over again. At least Navi sometimes helps, the owl dosen't help at all. To quote Twin Peaks "The owls are not what they seem". In his case he is anything but helpful.

Didn't mind Navi, Fi is the true culprit.

On the subject of Joey's Rattata, I have a shiny one :D
I agree with the person above me. Not literally above me.

I've always found Falco more annoying than Slippy. They both often require saving but at least Slippy is grateful.

If you save and quit when you need to go to Kakariko for the first time, when you start up, it is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to make it there from the forest without Navi "hey listen"ing!

The first character that comes to my mind is indeed Navi and her neverending "Hey, listen!". But that may be due to the fact that I'm currently playing OoT. :mrgreen:
The second one is Peach or better saying the way she looks, sounds, acts - I can't stand it.

I like Adam malkovich as a character, however I did hate how he was 'used' in Metroid Other M. As you mentioned about the power ups, Nintendo made it out so Adam was stopping you. I would have preferred it if they found some other way instead of making Adam out to be the bad guy.

I think Resetti's entertaining...

I do have to ask though, why isn't Daisy on the list? She's unbearable.

Top 2, hell yes! You make a fantastic point with Navi, and Slippy, gosh, I only rented Star Fox 64 3D for a couple of days (fantastic, getting for xmas!) but Slippy! Damn! One problem, Arianna. I didn't mind her, rather her over Emmy, or Luke... Plus, I welled up a little at the end of Layton 4, thinking it more sad than Layton 3... then i replayed Layton 3, and that's another story...

Navi is predictably at the top. To be honest, Slippy's not just annoying, he's genuinely useless in the field of battle. Even when there's an enemy gunning for him, he's too busy being overawed by the fact that "Venom's right there." Ugh... it's so satisfying in Lylat Wars' multiplayer when you gun down Slippy just because he's THAT annoying.

Now Peach I don't find annoying.

Five notable absentees:
1. Birdo (what I wouldn't give to axe its head off).
2. Baby Peach (broken in MKWii, excessively annoying).
3. Daisy (way over-the-top, although when she gets mad it's funny).
4. Zubat (in caves, every bloody step. Look for Geodude, come across Zubat).
5. Tentacool (whilst surfing, every bloody step).

Perhaps later (if and when I can be bothered to) I'll throw in non-Nintendo characters that are genuinely annoying.
