    The Colossi

    ..from Shadow of the Colossus. I had a sinking feeling every time I brought one down. It was a feeling of destroying something grand and beautiful.
  • 2.

    Slimes

    ..from Dragon Warrior. These low-level nobodies don't even have arms OR legs. Hell, they're even smiling! How can you hate something that rolls for 1d2 damage??
  • 3.

    Donkey Kong

    He was SO lovable that he was made into a hero of the Donkey Kong Country series!
  • 4.

    Goombas

    ..from Super Mario Brothers. The stupid little things have no arms and aside from looking angry, aren't very dangerous. I pity their stupid existence more than anything.
  • 5.

    Ghosts

    ..from Pac-Man. These idiots chase you all around only to be gobbled up as soon as you grab a power pill.
  • 6.

    Tiny Toad

    ..from Final Fantasy 4. I mean, c'mon - it's tiny. It's a toad.
  • 7.

    Big Daddies

    ..from BioShock. Big, ugly...dumb. They're just being good servants in the end.
  • 8.

    Kefka

    ..from Final Fantasy 6. The dude was just insane. He wasn't really a BAD guy.
