I think that the Tomb Raider bad guys are what make the game better!

This thread is for your quotes about them, and ideas for future enemies.

My favourite enemy is the giant serpent cuz it's the biggest.

It'd be nice to see some serious horror-themed enemies in TR. :p

Those lil white things scared the living daylights outta me. :eek: Whenever I play that level I scream and make Lara jump around like a complete idiot because I'm soo scared. :vlol: Pathetic, I know.

Kind of like me in Spider cave? :vlol:

I'm not an arachonopohic (I loved spiders when I was little, I think I still do :confused:) but it's just the atmosphere...and the egg sack :eek:

Maybe we`ll see Fiji islands in TRU! If so Crystal MUST include Fiji mermaid!
And I`m SURE we will see Chupacabra because it`s the most dark Mexican mystery now

I want to see some creatures from mythology coz I don`t like human villains like Amanda or Takamoto. They have magical powers but they are still human beings and I`m not scared yet XD

For looks, I love (in a nasty way :mis:) TRA's Greek centaurs. That scene where they wake up and attack Pierre rocks! :D The sound they make, between a horse's scream and a roar, always gives me goosebumps.

For creepy value, TRC's Irish imp demons are just the worst. Having no weapons really made a difference to that levelset. When they're coming at you from behind while you're stuck in a crawlspace, hearing that evil giggling laughter getting nearer... :eek:

For DIE enemy DIE! value though, the prize has to go to TRA's atlantean mummies. The damn things are just too fast, too nasty and too good at jumping out from dark corners and ripping you to shreds to go without a mention :tmb:

Mind you, a well-placed rabid dog in TR4's Mastabas complex once gave me a mortal fear of going round corners without a shotgun :( Took me an hour to peel myself off the ceiling after that episode.

I think that those Warriors in TR2's Dragon's Lair are really creepy and every time I replay that level I turn the volume down......I hate their chilling metal clunks as them try to pick you up and throw you on the floor with their spears...........*teeth chatter*

The noises of TR1's mummies and atlanteans. :yik: *Shudders* Horrific groans from around the corner...

Personally, I find that it's the enemy placement that makes me jump. I'm replaying TR2 at the moment - there's nothing scary about a man approaching Lara with a club. But stick him on the sunken ship behind a corner, with several shotgun thugs positioned not too far away, and it's a whole new kettle of fish. (Yes, I jumped!). Core certainly utilised all the correct tools in suspense (stripping Lara of her weapons, odd noises etc).

For scariest looking, I'd have to go with the TR1 Atlantean creatures. Strolling up to Tihocan's tomb, I could just tell it was going to happen. But it still made me jump!

Nope. From what I remember seeing in documentaries and what not, it was a monkey sown to a fish's tail, insanely popular in sideshows etc.

A monkey sown to a fish's tail? What kind of person would do such a thing!

Personally, it reminds me of that creepy mermaid in Tomb Raider Chronicles...

Yeah the monkey was alive when they did it :rolleyes:

According to some website I just read, it was a common art form in Japan, used in religious ceremonies etc.
