Rather than being the eternal heroes whose merits are praised in video games, these characters are real sissies, cowardly runaways, potential cowards.
In general, in video games, we like to focus on heroic characters, who demonstrate extraordinary courage and a sense of responsibility. To get us out of everyday life and human cowardice, it’s very cool, but we all know that not everyone is like that in real life. And some games have understood this well, by featuring completely cowardly characters, who flee from danger, who attack their enemies in the most disloyal way possible, before begging when they are at our mercy. .
Pat La Hyène – Demon’s Souls & Dark Souls
But what garbage this one! If you meet him, you will quickly regret it. Yet he does seem friendly at first. But in fact, he’s a coward and a coward, who’ll do anything to make your life difficult, but in the most despicable way possible.. For example, he’ll just push you over the edge of a precipice, or attack you from behind. And when you really confront him, he gets down on his knees to beg you to save his life … before starting his misdeeds again.
Campers – Any Multi FPS
It is not a character strictly speaking, but one recognizes them so easily that they are entitled to their own category. We even wonder how the game can be fun for them, to spend their time in hiding while waiting for enemies to show up.. Camper is the mark of cowards, unless you are defending in a tactical type game such as CS or Valorant (and more …).
The Boos – Mario games
What is a coward after all? We are talking about someone who has no courage, who does not dare to take responsibility and face danger in the face. We couldn’t have found a better definition for the Boos in Mario games. These ghosts spend their time chasing us when we have our backs turned, but as soon as we look at them, they do not move and hide. Who is the sissy after all?
Metal Slimes – Dragon Quest Series
Falling on a Metal Slime in a random fight from the Dragon Quest series is like hitting the jackpot: if you manage to beat them, you will be entitled to a hell of a lot of experience as a reward. And generally, they’re easy to beat: they do little damage, and aren’t extremely tough, although you have to hit them multiple times to beat them. The only problem is that they tend to flee as soon as they cross your path … In this, he is without a doubt one of the most cowardly enemies of the JRPG.
Micolash, Host of the Nightmare – Bloodborne
From Software games tend to have completely original mechanics for boss battles. But then we didn’t expect to face the most cowardly boss ever. Micolash, that’s it: he spends his time running away, and you have to spend long minutes chasing him to give him a blow as soon as you catch him. After a while he starts to fight, but only when you’ve managed to corner him …
