6. Shao Khan, from the Mortal Kombat series

Shao Khan 01

Emperor Cheap

Fighting game bosses are known to be particularly trying. But when it comes to total, unadulterated cheapness, Mortal Kombat’s Shao Khan takes the cake – icing and all.

This steroid-abusing freak murdered the previous ruler of Outworld to become its supreme ruler. As emperor, he then conquered and annexed lesser realms to his. Always scheming to add Earthrealm to his list of defeated worlds, he’s the prime antagonist in many Mortal Kombat titles.

Emperor meathead likes spamming nigh-invincible charge attacks that throw you across the screen like the lightweight that you are. He successfully blocks 99% of your attacks. Did we mention he also has a warhammer and a magical spear that he uses as a projectile? Most infuriating of all, he isn’t above petty, schoolyard taunting, never hesitating to let you know just how pathetic you really are.

If you’ve faced Shao Khan, then you already know how it feels to cry yourself to sleep – making this big bully one of the most vexing video game villains ever created.

Where does he hide a spear that big??

Shao Khan 03

"No one's slick as Shao Khan, no one's quick as Shao Khan, no one's neck's as incredibly thick as Shao Khan's!"
