Greatest Video Game Villains – #48 Mecha-Hitler

Game(s): Wolfenstein 3D

Background: Adolf Hitler is the final boss of the 1992 first-person WWII shooter, Wolfenstein 3D. But this isn’t just the infamous Hitler, this is Hitler in a mechanized, armored robotic suit. Armed with quad automatic chain guns, this encounter is one of the most ludicrous in video gaming. In a game filled with killing Nazi mutant super soldiers in the maze-like Castle Wolfenstein, nothing is a more fitting finale than taking down the Fuhrer himself. This nonsensical and potentially offensive final boss fight is just as humorous as it is epic.

Why He’s One Of The Greatest Video Game Villains: Most World War II based shooters make references to Adolf Hitler, but few let you take on and kill the German Nazi leader yourself. Without a doubt Hitler is one of the most evil men in all of human history, but fighting him in a ridiculous mech suit is nothing short of entertaining. The fight itself is challenging, as Hitler has an insane amount of health and must be defeated both within and outside of the suit. Nothing is more satisfying than destroying this infamous villain and leaving him as a puddle of blood and bones. This villain is too nonsensical and borderline insensitive to not include on this list.
