In order to reach the final boss of a video game, one must be prepared to wade through an absolute barraghe of smaller and more common enemies. With each head you stomp as Mario or slice apart as Link, you get closer to that goal.
However, in some instances it seems like these underlings didn't get the message, and are in fact absolute bruisers or just general pains in the neck for how much grief they give the player.
These are enemies that have almost burned down message boards with how many furious messages flood them concerning how detestable they are. At the end of the day we wanted a challenge but for these ten the only thing they succeeded in doing was uniting the playerbase all around the world in their unified hatred.
From poisoning to petrifying to making you just feel pathetic, the entries on this list are the worst of the worst.
10. Adult Cazador - Fallout: New Vegas
One of the most frustrating things about encountering an Adult Cazador in the almighty Fallout: New Vegas was that it was a complete inversion of expectations. In the previous game, Fallout 3, and even elsewhere in the Mojave, the first thing you'd likely come across was the disgusting flying blancmange that was the Bloatfly, an easy to target enemy that went down like a sack of spuds in a few shots.
So when you see this neon winged fellow fluttering about in the distance you would immediately assume he's of the same ilk. but with some gaudy go fast stripes. But for the love of The Master, do not engage with this beast as it will rip you into mole rat chunks.
Hitting with more physical damage than a GIANT RADSCORPION and doing 3 TIMES the ammount of poison damage, the Adult Cazador will pursue you to the ends of the earth should you try and shoot and run. And hitting the bastard is next to impossible without V.A.T.S due to its erratic nature.
So if you hear a buzzing while exploring the mountains of the mojave, just drop what you're doing and leg it as a horrible death is coming for you should you stick around.
