* Some segments of ''ViewtifulJoe'' feature annoying swarms of infinite robotic bats that stick to you, stunning you, and explode unless you button mash them away. They make you solve puzzles slower, and allow other enemies to hit you, but can be fended off with a {{Hurricane Kick}}.

* ''VideoGame/{{Trine}}'' has literal bats that: Always appear at the worst moment (like when you're trying to avoid falling into a BottomlessPit), always travel in packs, are hard to hit (only one of the characters has an air attack) and deplete your HealthMeter very rapidly.

** The Swoopys in ''Donkey Kong Country 3''. Little woodpeckers that you think are a UniqueEnemy... until you reach the [[NintendoHard Lost World]], where they get a level all to themselves. They fly across the stage in never-ending queues; killing one can make a gap in the line, but there will always be more. Most of the level you have to fly past them as Squawks the parrot, with squirrelly controls and a hard-to-aim arcing projectile attack. To reach the bonus levels, you have to slip through the knotholes they use, going with them once, going ''against'' them another. And they're ''in'' the bonus levels too, resulting in failure if one hits you!

* Roguelite platformer ''[[http://downwellgame.com/ Downwell]]'' has literal bats that cling to the walls until you're below them, then flutter slowly towards you. The problem is that this is a game where you go down and your weapons also only fire downwards. By themselves, they're fairly easy to dispatch by waiting and jumping on them, but mix in other enemies and they become a nightmare.

* ''VideoGame/{{HappilyEverAfter}}''. Straight in this unreleased game. Seem to can only be avoided, and spawns very often. [[http://www.nintendoplayer.com/unreleased/happily-ever-after/ Happily ever after]]

Added DiffLines:

* Cheep-Cheeps in the [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros. franchise]]. Unlike virtually every other enemy seen in the franchise, they respawn constantly and their movement makes them difficult to avoid by simply running fast. And like every other enemy, they drain your life or kill you with any touch that isn't a GoombaStomp.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''
** The games in general have Zingers and Buzzes, i.e. Goddamned Bees. They can only be killed by TNT barrels and are otherwise [[InvincibleMinorMinion invincible]].
** ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns''
*** Played literally in the level "Crowded Cavern"

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''
''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series

Zingers]] become this in ''Donkey Kong 64'' where they dive bomb the player and drop grenades. They can be shot out of the sky, but they just respawn shortly. Goddamned Bees...
** ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns''
***
''Videogame/DonkeyKong64'' also gives us Purple Klaptraps. These things will chase you down if they see you, and are immune to all standard attacks. There are two ways to kill them: orange bombs and your musical instrument attack. The former is horribly inaccurate, and can actually hurt '''you''' if you aim it wrong. The latter is the rough equivalent of using a nuke to kill a squirrel. The fact that these things don't drop health when you kill them does not help.

* ''[[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island]]'' has Grinders, monkeys that plague World 3 and are a real pest. They're fast, take multiple hits and have several methods of annoying you; such as grabbing Baby Mario right off Yoshi's back, spitting seeds at you and dropping bombs, which make holes in the level, making it easy for you to fall to your death. You will want to go to the nearest jungle and exterminate every monkey you can find by the time you're done with World 3.

* ''Taz-Mania'' for the SegaGenesis has the goddamned Bushrats. They're almost impossible to jump on due to their size, they throw spears at you, they can cause you to accidentally spin away health powerups in the process of killing them, and they can also cause you to spin off a platform and into oblivion.
