Day 6: Name the most annoying character you can think of
Well then. I can think of two, and honestly I can’t decide which one I find more annoying.
First there’s Issun from Okami.
This guy… I suppose he has his uses, but all I remember is him jumping up and down on Amaterasu’s nose like it was a trampoline, alternating between telling me I had no idea what I was doing, or otherwise hand-holding me through the game because he quite possibly thought I’d forget to breathe unless he reminded me. Just… ugh. I’m not sure any other NPC has ever made me quite so angry by merely existing.
Except maybe for this gem:
Fi from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Again, Fi had her uses, like kindly telling me when the batteries on the Wii remote were dying. And she had a neat backstory that added a little bit of interest to the Master Sword lore.
Unfortunately, this was completely overshadowed by her other “helpful” tips, like telling me that there was an 86.2213% chance enemies were about to attack (just as bokoblins were bearing down on me), or cheerfully reminding me that potion shops were for buying potions, or interrupting gameplay with vital information about how an insect’s wings indicates it can fly, or… for the love of Nayru can we have Midna back yet??
