Omochao from the Sonic series - master of the obvious.

The way I wanted to strangle that thing...

Is that that b*st*rd offspring off a failed Pokémon and the Microsoft Paperclip that turns up 0.001s into Sonic Unleashed? Where the game counts down to the start of a race with a big '3... 2... 1... GO!', you push forward to run and you've barely crossed the line when the game freezes with UNSKIPPABLE dialogue where he tells you to press forward to run? Or when you unlock a new route, a door starts glowing BRIGHT YELLOW, and as you go over to it, the thing pops up again with more unskippable dialogue, suggesting you investigate that door that wasn't glowing before.

At least you could ignore Navi, and sometimes she had some good advice. That little sh!t ruined even the few decent running stages.

Ahaha, nah that's Chip but I can forgive him. Omochao is in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Generations. Omochao is probably the most agonisingly annoying thing about Sonic Generations (the only bad thing about the game, really.)

Can't wait to do my playthrough on the Sonic Generations, so I can rage about it.

You guys do realise that you can turn both Chip's and Omochao's voices off, right? Seriously, it's like you WANT to be annoyed.

I've thought of a few more:

The main character in Two Worlds - Mayhap speaking like this doth verily sound wrong when one hath an Amercian accent and half-assed dialogue.

The financial advisor on the Council in Civilization 2. I let you say your piece, now stop disagreeing with what the others are saying!

Glarthir in Oblivion. Actually, all of the male wood elves are annoying. The owner of the Copious Coinpurse, the mage who's been exiled to a cave and the fighter's guild member who keeps shirking his duty all irritate me, but at least they don't chase after me yelling "pssst, over here!"

Big the Cat in Sonic Adventure.

Not actually that bad in Sonic Chronicles but cannot stand him in Adventure.

Lydia in Skyrim is my new hate. Sick of her saying she is 'bound to carry my burdens' whenever I need to trade inventory with her. Seriously considered killing her and using her soul to enchant some crapy slippers then chuck em in the Sightless Pitt to rot for eternity

Stripey (Digbys Alien Pet) in Dan Dare C64-I could have kicked that fecker so ruddy hard....

The Professor in Fade To Black (escort mission time)-Slow down, i'm just an old man!-Right and a supposed genius, yet your walking with a stick, where's yer ruddy anti-grav wheel chair? this is'nt an inter-galactica SAGA jolly day out, got Alien Morph's on our arse here.

That ruddy fairy from Blue Stinger, hell entire Blue Stinger cast (DC).

Tails (voice) in Sonic Rush. If I remember rightly he speaks from the moment you boot up the game. "Way to go sonic, your the best!" in a very grating voice that makes him sound like he was castrated at birth (if he was born with any balls in the first place, probably why he has two tails instead.

Another mention in the female character in Silent hill 4. She's great in the story, but It's when you have to escort her through the game for a second time it becomes unbearable. It's like playing through the game with a cement block chained to your leg.

^ So easy I guess we all hit a blind spot! :lol:

Here's some more:
The caddies from Ace Golf - shut up all of you with your ridiculously over-the-top accents and blindingly obvious advice!

Necro & Twelve (SFIII) - weird, creepy, awkward to fight b'stards.

That guy from the 3DO version of Need For Speed - you know the one...

Bug! - simply because he exists.

I used to enjoy beating up Tricky on Starfox Adventures. They also managed to turn the Prince into an unlikeable git in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.

Started playing Final Fantasy IX again, love the game but those jesters do my head in. I'd completely forgotten how annoying they are.

Also, the voodoo lady from Monkey Island. Her long, go-nowhere monologues really grate on me.

Probably Smarmy Bee or Charmy Bee - actually I hate all of Chaotic's characters

Everybody on Knuckle Bash various palette swapped shirt lifters by the look of them, though they had no readily discernible personalities..
