* Big Daddies from ''VideoGame/BioShock''.
** Specifically the 'Bouncer' variety. Ironically, you only get to fight one in the whole game; the ones that appear in later levels are Elite Bouncers and have distinctly different shaped drills.

* The ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' franchise's Slimes, which subvert prior RPG depictions of the BlopMonster by being tear drop shaped and having large goofy smiles on their faces. The regular blue slimes are the [[TheGoomba first enemies]] encountered in the games and one of the weakest; however, they come in a [[UndergroundMonkey a plethora of variations]] including the nigh-indestructible MetalSlime and the gigantic [[KingMook King Slime]]. They are probably one of the most well-recognized [=RPG=] monsters in gaming history, spawning tons of merchandise (in Japan, at least). There's even a DS title starring one: ''VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime''.

* The Rebel Grunts from ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' are one of the most remembered parts of the game. A lot of the humor comes from their funny and casual actions. They've got to be playable in their own mode in the Xbox version of ''VideoGame/MetalSlug3''.
** Even more famous are the [[StarfishAliens Mars People.]]

* ''VideoGame/DigDug'' has the Pooka, a red round thing wearing [[GogglesDoNothing goggles]]. Reportedly, a lot of merchandise was made off of this mook, plus you can unlock one as a playable multiplayer character in ''Ms. VideoGame/PacMan Maze Madness'', and one was even factored into the storyline of the first ''Pac-Man World'' as one of the rescuable friends. They even make appearances as enemies in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' in the Namco-developed 4th title.

** To a lesser extent, the enemies that give Kirby [[PowerCopying Copy Abilities]] act as living [[PowerUp power-ups]] and some grow to become heavily associated with their copy abilities. Some of these were even made into playable characters via the [[PlatformingPocketPal Helper]] system in ''Kirby Super Star''.
* Moos from the ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'' series are big round blank-faced creature that mills around aimlessly, waiting for Klonoa to use them as either a springboard or a missile. Their inherent harmlessness coupled with their adorable appearance easily makes Moos one of the most recognizable creatures in the franchise.

* Moos from the ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'' series are big round blank-faced creature that mills creatures known for their CatSmile and [[TheDitz spacey]] expression (they sort of resemble a cross between a cat, a rabbit, and a Waddle Dee). They like to mill around aimlessly, waiting for Klonoa to use them as either a springboard or a missile. Their inherent harmlessness and [[TheDitz ditzyness]] coupled with their adorable appearance easily makes Moos one of the most recognizable creatures in the franchise.
