10 Scariest Resident Evil villains | From Lisa Trevor to sharks

Capcom has seen fit to revisit the history of Resident Evil with their latest remakes, including Resident Evil 2. Therefore, it seems like a great time to sort through the most iconic bad guys the series ever produced. Considering its onetime place at the forefront of survival horror, the creatures gamers faced in early games were unique in both form and function. From the standard zombie dogs to whatever the heck the Albinoid is, crawling around Umbrella facilities will always give you something to worry about.

Once you get past the hallways of spiked devils and infected townsfolk, you’ll generally encounter a big boss. Perhaps it is one of the ones who has been running the whole operation. Perhaps it’s a scientist who has long since strayed towards the evils of personal gain. Maybe there’s just a giant mutant man in a tube ready to burst out and hunt you down. Someone has to be behind these creepy-crawlies, and they’re usually on the Umbrella Corporation’s massive payroll.

Whatever the origin, there’s nothing quite like reaching a Resident Evil boss. They’ve got some of the most horrific character design around, and we’ve collected 10 of the most notable. We focused on the early entries in the series, and we included a few spoilers, so don’t move on unless you’re up on your RE lore. Still, if you need a demo of what awaits before you pop in Resident Evil 2 Remake, we’ve got your back. Here is a whirlwind tour through the Rouges Gallery of the classic entries in the Resident Evil franchise.

Resident Evil‘s lot of villains has given it quite a place within gaming’s history. From the maniacal to the straight up disgusting, the series has almost everything. Well, almost everything. There aren’t any zombie penguins. Yet. There’s always room for a Resident Evil set in Antarctica.
