We love video games, and game developers, but every now and then they produce a character so annoying and unrewarding we wonder what the hell they were thinking.

Either they’re overly hard or irritatingly voiced but they always get in the way of enjoying the game.

Here’s our list of the ten most annoying videogame characters we’ve been forced to put up with. We couldn’t kill them outright because we need their services, like Tingle in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask or because the entire game was built around them, like the unforgivably aggravating Ashley Graham from Resident Evil 4, who whined and complained her way all the way onto our list.

We hope developers will learn from these mistakes and move on to more complex and less cringe-worthy characters. However some series like Final Fantasy are always going to be replete with cringing crybabies. While we don’t condone character assassination, these examples do it all to themselves.
