Animal antagonists feature in works where the player character is a human or reasonably humanoid (such as an alien) and the primary villain or an important rival is an animal. They may have some human-like tendencies such as speech or wearing clothes, but ultimately are non-anthropomorphic.
Anthropomorphism is the concept of an object, concept or character that has human qualities or traits, such as speech, a level of intelligence similar or higher than a human's and self consciousness. "Anthro" means "of human" and related to the concept of humanity.
Video game bosses are usually the main antagonist, and arch nemesis of the main protagonist. In most cases the end of a game is when the main character defeats the final boss.
Sometimes, enemies will explode (usually when shot at) and will cause damage to the player.
A living being who is the product of the reproductive mating of two different species.
Henchmen are the loyal grunts caught in between the player and the main antagonist. Without them every game would be nothing more than a boss battle.
A common type of stage featured in many games. Slippery ice, avalanches, and freezing water are some of the unpleasantries to be had when visiting these cold arctic regions.
Kart racers are cartoon-like racing games that often feature fantastical power-ups.
A boss that doesn't move around during battle. It will instead use other means to "reach" the player.
A malevolent character whose goals are evil in nature. While villains are commonly featured as antagonists, not all antagonists are necessarily villains.
Voice Acting is the art of providing voices for characters in games, television shows, films, radio programs, and other forms of media.
