Every good platforming game has to have its signature baddie, and Oddworld is no exception. But whereas enemies such as the Goombas of the Super Mario series or the pig soldiers in Rocket Knight Adventures are somewhat goofy, the Sligs in the Oddworld games are downright horrifying.
Mario would probably soil himself if he ever came across one of these tentacle-mouthed lizard creatures, which Oddworld protagonist Abe encounters on a daily basis.
There isn't much about the Little Sisters that isn't creepy. Their glowing pupil-less eyes and otherworldly voices provide plenty of nightmare material to gamers who venture into the halls of the city of Rapture.
As if that description isn't bad enough, hang in there because it gets much worse. The sole purpose of Little Sisters is to extract and drink the blood of corpses scattered throughout the city (dead bodies are quite abundant thanks to Rapture's civil war). The blood is then processed by slugs which are implanted inside the Sisters. All of this horror exists just so a batch of the superpower-inducing substance called ADAM can be produced by the slugs.
This monstrosity happened to be the very first strange thing I wrote about in this blog, and easily earns the top spot on this list. Half-human, half-chicken, all terror is a good way to describe Ooccoo.

Speaking of Tingle, I bet you're wondering why he isn't on this list, he is one of the most talked about characters in this blog after all. Well to address your concerns, I figured everyone was probably Tingled-out by now, thanks to his multiple appearances in Strange Moments in Gaming, including a starring role in this blog's lengthy 100th post.
I hope you've enjoyed this three year anniversary post, many thanks to everyone who has been reading and commenting over the years!
