Most common enemies in games?

Recommended Posts

I can think of two very common enemies that I often see in games: Skeletons and giant spiders. I actually like seeing them in games, though. Can you think of any enemies that are super common in games these days?

Wolves are very common enemies in videogames - I can think of very few games that don't have a wolf or werewolf as some kind of enemy.

Ah, the ol’ wolf. Very common enemy, yes. Almost as familiar as rats - another overplayed adversary. lol.

Zombies, vampires, mummies, devils. All the basic horror genre monsters. Dragons also seem to be popular. Even SMB had Bowser which was somewhat of a dragon.

Aye, zombies are possibly the most well-trodden enemy design of the last decade.

It's always the generic brain eating dumber than a rock zombies though. I can't recall ever seeing any somewhat intelligent zombies that can do the basics a human can do. They always have to brute force things.

Too true. The closest I’ve ever seen of a zombie that had a brain cell in its body that was its own, was the bloody zombie in Castlevania SOTN. Other than that they always reach or fully climb up from the ground to feed on brains.

Cli-fucking-che!

And they are normally always moaning and answer every question moaning who knows what!

I think snakes and dogs are also pretty much common in many games. As for say some FPS games, you have like those suicide bombers too. 

Good call! Snakes and dogs are in a ton of games, for sure. Makes me think of Resident Evil 4, where the snakes jump out of the boxes and when you kill them they give you an egg to eat - yum. And yeah, those suicide bomber enemies are very popular indeed!

Mad Scientists are common enemies in video games and usually they are the cause of the outbreak/crisis by messing with something that they fail to contain and it goes out of control/berserk.

Bugs. There's always some kind of bug that you have to deal with somewhere in every game.

That is very true! They are also ridiculously hard/impossible to bypass without some kind of outside interference.
