Medusa's are definitely the worst. Flea men are also pretty bad.

I didn't expect it to be so unanimous. I mean, at least the Medusa Heads are somewhat predictable. XD

Medusa head. Maybe the answer is predictable for a good reason.

The imp was really annoying, as is the panther as it is really hard to get near without being hit.  
 
The Medusa Head and the Ghost Head were really bad though, especially in the first games without the ability to double jump, as you got killed or missed a platform very easily with their help.

The armored flea men were pretty bad, but yeah the medusa heads are so much more annoying than even that.

Effin' bats.

I love jumping to a platform and running into a medusa head. Yep, love it so much. So annoying in C:Circle of the Moon

Not when there's like twenty of the things on screen at the same time, which, let's be honest, there are. I ain't going anywhere near a god damn Clocktower ever again, I'll tell you that.

Medusa Head. NO CONTEST. Play Castlevania 3, Dracula X, or Bloodlines for further investigation on said matter.

FLEA MEN.  I cannot stand tiny enemies, but adding in all that damn hopping usually just has me suck it up and run through them when possible.  Hate those little jerks!

Yeah, running isn't such a great idea...

Medusa Head first, Flea Man coming in second.

I'm gonna be extra specific and say the yellow Medusa Heads; taking minor damage and falling into environmental hazards is always a pain in the ass, but being turned to stone so you take extra damage while you mash the buttons to free yourself? So, so much worse.

Eff the medusa heads.

Medusa Head by a large margin.

When I get to the mandatory medusa head room, I'm just like "how the fuck are they still putting this in the game? Who is asking for this?"

That's why I use the Mirror Cuirass a lot in SotN. You get it long before you even encounter a Medusa Head, let alone a yellow one. I'm pretty sure that other games with yellow Medusa Heads have some sort of anti-petrification equipment, as well.
