Threemake:: Oh, fine, here's your loading screen tip: Hunters are close-range fighters. Remember to back up and keep your distance.
Yahtzee: Threemake, you're making me fight these things in a fucking hospital corridor! What am I supposed to "back up" into, the fucking vending machine coin return slots?

"That's what I'm really thankful for in this game: there are no spiders. Or if there are, they're harmless enough. There's always a tiny spider enemy that you have to struggle to hit. This game doesn't have that. No headcrabs, no spider monsters, just enemies that you can hit."

"Skree, skree. Skreek. SKREEK!"
— The titular Metroids

"Fuck these guys! Fuck these engineers right here, with the cameras? They shoot giant fuck-off lasers that hit you from across the goddamn map, and their melee attack tears all your health away. Just... fuck them! Fuck... them!"
Mechanicalhand, Let's Play Painkiller Overdose

Psychedelic Eyeball: Of course, they kept the worst section of the level for last, because these guys are...
Null Set: (in the middle of Psychedelic Eyeball's sentence) Oh... fuck these guys!
Psychedelic Eyeball: ...are fucking nightmares. Because, not only can they soak up a ton of damage, and you can't freeze them, they got this little... psychic-like attack where they hurt you from a distance and you can't do anything about it.
Psychedelic Eyeball's Let's Play of Painkiller: Battle out of Hell, Level 9: Stone Pit

Tom: Right, uh, you've heard us bitch about this quite a lot, I believe, through the playthrough - might have mentioned it in an earlier part, but I can't remember. The enemies in this area - there is no word for how frustrating it is to fight them.
Helldragon: In a way, they're like genetically engineered bats that came in contact with metal...and became cars.
Helldragon: These dudes are gigantic douchebags. When they flail, they're like batshit insane, they're pretty much fucking invulnerable and they never stop attacking. You would think that hitting them in the face over and over would get 'em to back down, NO, these cars want your fucking ass.
Hellfire Commentaries on the Hot Rods from Kingdom Hearts II

"You know, with some practice, I could get through most of the game without getting hit once, but the problem IS THE FUCKING SNIPERS!"

Coach: Damn, baby. There be like three witches over there!
Nick: That's okay. Those five chargers in a row, five minutes ago, made me realize how fucked we are anyways.
Ellis: Look! Here comes another one!

"God, Wolverine (Garrador) sucks so much."
Super Jeenius, Let's Play Resident Evil 4 Blind

"If you can beat this thing, you're incredible."
— The description for the Titanian, Earthbound Beginnings

"You know how in shooters, everybody hates the small and fast, annoying enemies because they're hard to hit? Well, the developers looked at that and said "You know what would make those better? If instead of making them annoying, we made them really dangerous. Let's have the bats be fast, mobile, and kill the player in two hits. Oh, and let's cluster 20 or 30 of these things together so it's really a pain in the ass for the player to draw them out."
Ross Scott, describing The Chosen: Well Of Souls

It's easy to forget about Stingers if they're not nearby, but I recommend you deal with them ASAP. Trust me on this.
Mr. Grizz, Splatoon 2's Salmon Run mode if you lose a workshift

Johnny: And then there's this asshole, Chargin' Chuck. Besides having no fucking idea what sport he's supposed to be playing, he also likes to jump at you, throw rocks, split into copies, and warn other enemies about your presence.
Gilbert Gottfried: WHAT AN ASSHOLE!

Gyre: 'Kay, these are the Mindflayers. (Warrior gets KOed, needing a Save Scum) *laugh* So besides their Insta-death attack, they also have all-party paralysis. So, basically I give them like... three seconds to decide if I can get away from them. Otherwise, that's a reset. It's just not really worth dealing with.
osey889: In... some ways they're worse than Cockatrices.
DragonDarch: In a lot of ways they're worse than Cockatrices. *everyone laughs*
Gyre: The only way they're not worst than Cockatrices is that they're not birds, but they're honorary squid-birds.
