Over the years we've been chased and attacked by just about every video game animal you can think of, and some are definitely a lot more mean than others. Below are the 10 that we'll never forget.
1. Angry Birds

If there's one thing you don't want to do, it's steal an egg from an angry bird. These Panda Express addicted monsters have no qualms with launching themselves from a slingshot into your home. Heck, they'll even draw up an algorithm to make sure that when they crash into your roof it'll do the most structural damage possible.
Angry Birds was a pretty fun game, which might explain why it became a billion dollar franchise within just four years. But seriously, I never got over how pissed off these guys look. I haven't seen a face so pissed since Tucker Carlson roasted Sunsara Taylor.
2. Boxing Horse (Japan World Cup 3)

Some people take competition way too seriously. Case in point: this boxing horse. He's so committed to winning races that he learned how to run on two feet, just so he could keep his arms ready to punch anyone who passes him in the throat.
Really, most of the characters in Japan World Cup 3 could earn a spot on this list, but the boxing horse is definitely the most intimidating. Have you seen what a horse can do to a car? I wouldn't even come close to this thing without a BFG-9000.
3. Deathclaw (Fallout 3)

Anyone who has played Fallout hates Deathclaws. These are the reincarnation of Satan, capable of turning a perfectly good day into a nightmare. They've been known to show up uninvited at birthday parties and start slaying everyone in a way only a serial killer could think of.
We're lucky that these things don't exist in real life, or we might just be fighting from going extinct. I mean, just look at 'em.
4. Donkey Kong
Watch: Donkey Kong In Real Life
You might think he's a nice fellow who will sit down and eat a banana with you, but you better watch out. It wasn't long ago that he kidnapped Princess Peach and tried to kill the only person willing to try and rescue her by rolling massive barrels toward him.
When he isn't busy acting like a maniac, he's probably smashing you in Mario Kart, that son of a gun. While he might be responsible for some of the best Nintendo games ever made, you won't catch me dead ever trying to high five him. He'd probably take my hand right off the bone.
5. Goat (Goat Simulator)
Who would have ever known that these cute animals were savage creatures? And it isn't that they just like to maul people in a normal animal sort of way, apparently they know how to use tools to inflict the most damage possible, like in this video where a goat shatters a glass doorfor seemingly no reason whatsoever.
Interestingly enough, you get to play as the Goat in Goat Simulator, which means—for once—you don't have to be at the mercy of a sadistic animal. In this case, you get to see the world through the eyes of a monster, capable of tossing people onto treadmills that launch them into explosive cars. Perfect.
6. Grizzly Bear (Red Dead Redemption)
John Marston was one tough cookie. He battled the most dangerous outlaws of the Wild West, and protected his family from a wide array of deadly animals. But even he wouldn't go face-to-face with a Grizzly Bear.
As seen in the image above, Grizzly Bears in Red Dead Redemption were notoriously beastly. You might think your little gun will save you, just before the fuzzy kill machine acts like you just shot a Nerf dart at him, and proceeds to eat you like a Thanksgiving dinner. If you think you can just pretend to be a danger to the bear like this guy and have it run away, you're in for a rude awakening.
7. Honey Badger (Far Cry 4)
Watch: Honey Badger Houdini
This ain't no Badger Badger Badger. This is Sparta. If you walk into a Honey Badger's territory, you better be ready to pay the ultimate price.
Just like they say, Honey Badgers just don't give a F. You thought hunting tigers and asian rhinos was tough work, wait until you face one of these unsuspecting demons. And if you think you can outsmart them, good luck. They've been known to escape captivity better than El Chapo.
8. Shark (Scarface: The World Is Yours)
Watch: Real Life Tony Montana
You may have been under the impression that Tony Montana could only be defeated by an assassin under perfect circumstances, but think again. Apparently one quick trip out at sea is all it takes for this gangster to turn into a nice mid-day snack.
The Scarface: The World Is Yours shark attack scene is one of the game's most famous, not that the game is well-known or anything since it wasn't a very good game. But it surprised the heck out of a lot of kids, probably dealing some serious mental damage in the process.
Just look at these monsters. Would you really want to walking up to your doorstep? Not that they'd have to walk up in the first place given they're equipped better than a team of Navy Seals.
They'll beat you with a bat, throw a Holy Hand Grenade at you, or just rely on a good ol' fashioned rocket launcher to do the trick, all while wearing some bunny ears. This is exactly the sort of thing you hope not to have nightmares about.
10. Zombie Dog (Resident Evil)
Watch: Resident Evil 7 With Dunkey
Responsible for my first gaming heart attack, the Resident Evil zombie dogs are a couple of douchebags. All I wanted to do was find the next puzzle piece, and then these ding dongs decided to launch themselves through my perfectly clean windows and begin to terrorize me.
And as if dogs weren't already scary enough, these bloodthirsty monsters had something worse than rabies: the t-Virus. Honestly, the best course of action probably would have been to just punch myself in the temple, because the alternative was one of the worst ways to die.
