As one of the most popular video game franchises in history, Capcom's Resident Evil series has been terrifying gamers for more than 20 years. Premiering on the PlayStation in 1996, the first Resident Evil was a game-changer, essentially revolutionizing the survival horror genre and proving that video games, could, in fact, be pretty freaking terrifying.
While each installment features engaging characters (some recurring, some new) and eerie backdrops, the in-game designs—namely, the diabolical monsters—are one of the series' main staples. And now, with the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes upping the ante with improved graphics, gameplay mechanics, and more, these classic Resident Evil villains have never looked scarier.
From imposing enemies like Mr. X to horrifyingly huge creatures like the Draghignazzo, there have been some incredibly scary Resident Evil bosses over the years, but which ones actually gave you nightmares? Vote up all the enemies who terrified you the most, regardless of where they came from or how tragic their backstories are.
