Yeah... Mordack was freaky. Did anyone else like his voice actor? Made him sound evil. Or I think he did. It's been a while.

But I'm going with the majority.
The Boogeyman popping out of nowhere. It was always so surprising when he'd show up. I don't remember... did he usually fall from the sky, come up from the ground, or did he do both?

The witch in 5 was also freaky because she'd just pop out of nowhere. I'm all jumpy. I don't like surprises.

In 6, the Minotaur was creepy when you'd get locked in that room and didn't know you needed a certain item before going into the catacombs. And you'd sit there... and Alexander knew something was coming... and then he'd die. Sadness, sadness.
Is it sleepy time yet? :zzz:

It has to be the bogeyman. I first played KQ7 when i was about 5 years old (starting age of my King's Quest craze  :P) and i was looking around uga buga land and the music the bogeyman used scared the hell out of me i could'nt sleep for nights.  :'(

I suppose I would have to say the bogey-man like so many others. Of course it could be that at the time I was playing the game with a crappy mouse that sometimes decided to stop working.  >:(

The cave troll in KQ4 scared me every time.  Random, inescapable deaths like that frighten me more than any of the action games I watch my dad play.  Maybe that's why Freddy Pharkas gave me nightmares as a kid - too many timed puzzles of graphic (yet cartoonish) death!

The desert spirit (Farwalker?) was a little freaky, but I mostly appreciated him as a tragic character for whom you could feel sympathy.  Loved that cape, too!  I'd kind of like to see him in KQ9.

Probably the boogeyman for me. Another one would be the giant scorpion near the beginning of KQ7. That was pretty freaky the first time I played it, of course I was only seven.  :P

I agree. The thing with all the others is they can be killed. But the boogeyman belongs to the living undead and can't be killed.
