The Top 7... Irritating female characters

Annoyed us in: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/GC/Wii, 1998)

Right off the bat, we HEY! knew we weren't going to get along LISTEN! well with Navi. In the opening minutes of Ocarina of Time, hero Link - then just a boy - is peacefully HEY! sleeping in his forest home, when LISTEN! all of a LISTEN! sudden Navi barges in and violently shakes HEY! him awake. But we grudgingly put up with her presence, because she HEY! taught us how to get around in the LISTEN! world and helpfully floated above whatever objects or LISTEN! monsters we locked our HEY! aim onto.


Before long, however, it became HEY! clear that she intended to be with LISTEN! us throughout the remainder of the game. And that might not have been so bad, except for her constant HEY! yammering. She also had a bad habit of interrupting our LISTEN! exploration by repeating the HEY! same all-text suggestions over and HEY! over, or floating above some HEY! object of interest that we either were LISTEN! already done with, or weren't ready to be interested LISTEN! in yet. But her unsolicited advice, interruptions and demands for attention would all have been tolerable if she hadn't insisted on driving us insane by repeatedly yelping the same two LISTEN! HEY! HEY! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! HEY! HEY! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! HEY! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! LISTEN! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! words. WHAT!?

    I can't take your list seriously at all. It just comes off as objectifying when it could have come off as something worth reading. I looked up "Best female characters" - got no article. I looked up "most irritating male characters" - again, nothing from GamesRadar. So it seems to me that you're just adding to a stereotype that most women would really like to change rather than coming from a clean perspective where you're equally voicing opinions for and against female characters as well as for and against male ones.

    I disagree that Navi is more annoying than the Beggar lady. I hated that chick so much! She interrupted an assignation mission I had by jumping in the way when I pressed the assassination button which in turn assassinated her, made me have to start the mission again but not before I had to fight all the guards that were alerted to my presence. Honestly what were the creators thinking! I would have been happy if she just begged for money on the same spot but for reasons I can't fathom she decides to only move off her spot and harass Altair.

    the lady in assassins creed also throws rocks at you if you try to climb a building to get away from her -.- Also, don't forget Farah in the first Prince Of Persia. As soon as a fight would start, she'd yell "PROTECT ME!" and sprint headlong into a horde of sand zombies to fight at close range with a bow... dumb b*tch.

    Don't forget that the beggar lady also threw rocks at you when you ran away and started climbing a nearby building just to avoid her. I mean seriously! just because Altair doesn't give money to you doesn't mean he's going to give it to you after you throw rocks at him!

    I was severely disappointed when I met Ashley in Resident Evil 4. Seeing how kick-ass and original the game had been to that point, I assumed she'd be a unique and strong character, continuing the game's record of ass-kicking and uniqueness. I met her and carried on as I had before. Shoot him in the head, grenade over there, knife that crate... "HEEEEELP!!! LEON!!!" After clearing a roomful of enemies, I missed one, and he carried her to the door. Now I have to do it all over again. F*** YOU!!! (Okay, so she ducked when you were in aiming mode. Have a cookie.) And, of course, the one time I wanted to show off the game to my friends, I had saved right before Ashley's playable part. Thanks, Capcom. (That said, Resident Evil 4 is still the best sixth-console-generation that was made. Have a truck-full of cookies, Capcom)

    I can't believe they forgot to mention that if you try to climb a building to get away from the beggar lady she throws F****** rocks at you. That's why i ALWAYS KILL THEM BITCHES!
  • Alcibiades - March 8, 2010 9:44 p.m.

    ashley is a biatch in the first game and even more of a biatch in the second game, should have just killed her off imo.
  • RanTheAwesome - February 19, 2010 11:56 a.m.

    No annoying male characters? Too bad, because I can name over 100 male characters that have annoyed the shit out of me in games. Wow, how sexist you guys are. It's fucking disgusting.
  • BloodBarrage - December 15, 2009 6:16 p.m.

    Navi's voice could become the world's most effective & annoying car alarm.
