30 Day Gaming Challenge: #6 – Most Annoying Character

Welcome, one and all, to day six of the 30 Day Gaming Challenge. Today’s challenge is … Most Annoying Character. OK, so continuing with the point that I don’t get to play as many games as I’d like, trying to narrow this down is difficult. I’m not sure that I can think of any characters that annoy me in the way that I think this question is meaning. There are a few that frustrate me more than anything, though that’s got a lot to do with me sucking at video games. Anyway, let’s talk about a few of them.

Nine

Unlimited Nine The Phantom (BlazBlue Central Fiction)

So, if you manage to finish Arcade Mode on BBCF and finish every fight with Astral, Distortion and Overdrive finishes, you get to do an extra fight after the ending finishes. I know that there are a few different ones that you can face, but mine have always come up as Nine thus far. Now, you may think that finishing Arcade Mode in this way would mean that I’m good at the game. Well … I am to a degree. Unlimited characters are overpowered though. They’re pretty much permanently in Overdrive mode, complete with the stat boosts it brings. On top of that, I find Nine to be the hardest of the Arcade Mode bosses as it is. Most of the time, my reaction within the first few seconds of facing this beast is to mumble something along the lines of, “Hitting you once would be nice.”

Knuckles (Sonic Adventure 2)

Oh, you feel some strange energy do you? Is it the mystical power of drowning constantly? I love Knuckles, I really do, but I find him so annoyingly frustrating to play as in SA2. Especially in the Aquatic Mine zone. I’ve never known another character to so easily highlight my own inadequacies in controlling things on a 3D plane. Cheers Knuckles.

Golden Freddy Mode (Five Night’s At Freddy’s: Sister Location)

Not one, but a ton of characters, all turning up at once, on the hardest difficulty. It’s a me-massacre. I have naff headphones and a poor sense of telling which direction a sound is coming from, so this mode is a loser for me from the get-go. As such, a bunch of characters that are absolutely fine on their own (or in small groups), merge into one big ball of frustration here.

  1. Hmm, I’m trying to remember a game where an NPC played a very important part in the game, but where this NPC was a constant hindrance of everything. For the life of me I can’t remember the name, but I do know that at times I nearly threw the controller at the wall because I could not finish certain missions due to the fact that the AI of the NPC was just so incredibly dumb. If I remember the name of that game and the character I will return to this post and write it down 😊

    1. It’s annoying when that happens, isn’t it? I thought of another one, actually. The President’s Daughter in Resident Evil 4. The amount of times she popped up just when i was pulling the trigger in escort missions is mad.

      1. Uggggghhhhh, yeah that is another great example (and by the way can I say that escort missions are one of the things that I truly hated in games: a lot 😂😂). Whoever invented those….seriously 😊

    2. Rafa from Final Fantasy Tactics is one of those. Depending on your party, she’s even likely to go first, and there’s a basically 50% chance she’ll head straight into the attack range of the enemy assassins and die before you even get to move.

  2. “Oh, I wanna pick up this character in BlazBlue”
    *Plays through arcade mode*
    *Nine destroys me*
    welp

    Her ideology is sort of interesting, though. How she conceived Konoe is something I don’t want to think about, though.

    1. I never got to do any of Big’s fishing, so I couldn’t compare. Knuckles’ stages were so incredibly frustrating though. Especially when you knew am emerald shard we nearby but just couldn’t dig in the right spot.
