They’re all very small and some are cute and some are scary.
A lot of video games have interesting animals, but only a few go the extra mile and include some of the smallest ones. Even though these are often the cutest animals, that doesn’t mean they can’t also be scary.
The smallest animals show up a lot in game plots. Many times, you couldn’t get to the end of a game without these little creatures. Now, let’s look at some of the tiniest creatures you can find in games.
The Slimes from the Dragon Quest series may be one of the oldest enemies in video games that is still being made. Even though they are very small, they are easy to spot because of their simple design and cute face.
It makes sense that a low-level Slime would be so little. When you first start a game, you need something small to hit with. There are bigger Slimes, but the basic slime is a well-known character in the series.
It’s true that these little creatures are unique. Your journey through the easy-to-understand strategy puzzle series Pikmin will take you across many of the cute little creatures that give the game its name.
They are important to the whole Pikmin series because they work together to help you reach your goals. Even though you have to lead them through the games, they are still some of the cutest little friends anyone could have.
This is a little bit of a cheat because your Spore creature will grow and change into something much better in the end, but for now, it’s just a tiny living thing. That could mean that the creatures you make in Spore are the smallest creatures ever made in a game.
You start out as tiny living things and slowly get bigger as you move up the food chain. This is even better because you can change how the creatures look, so each time you play, they are different.
Lots of different sized and shaped monsters can be found in the Zelda games, but the Minish are by far the tiniest. These tiny people are very important in the handheld game The Minish Cap, which doesn’t get nearly enough attention.
Link shrinks down to their size to deal with a wide range of unique issues. This turns even the most basic enemies into dangerous bosses. They keep things to themselves, but so many people have been dying for years for them to come back to the series.
With mushrooms being small in general, it makes sense that the Mushroom Men in the Nintendo Wii game with the same name are also very small. Even though they are always at war, the little figures are somehow cutely funny.
In the Mushroom Men game, other animals come to life, but since you play as them, it’s the titular figures that stand out the most. That’s all Pac can do as a mushroom while the world falls apart, and most people will be fine with that.
Even though the Headcrabs in the Half-Life games are small, they are very scary. If you step wrong and end up in the path of a Headcrab, you will die very quickly.
The strange thing is that these little aliens are about the size of a pumpkin. That’s not very small, but they are still a very big threat. They’re not dangerous to you as a player because they are a pretty normal enemy, but anyone who has played Half-Life will remember them.
The cute Lemmings that give the game its name must be one of the tiniest characters in any video game. To move on to the next level of the puzzle game, you have to get all of the different critters to the exit.
Since a lemming is a small mouse in real life, it makes sense to include them on this list. Some people may have forgotten about them now, but you might remember what Lemmings did for puzzle games in general.
The Koroks are some of the cutest little animals out there, whether you love or hate the way they give away golden poop. It’s easy to picture their situation if you’ve played Breath of the Wild or Tears of the Kingdom.
There are little forest ghosts all over the place, ready to be found or helped by you. In a game where guns break easily, that makes the Koroks really great. You will only get one simple point that can be used to improve your inventory in the future.
This cute little flower-like thing could be one of the tiniest Pokémon ever. This Pokemon is the first in its line of development. It may get bigger as it evolves, but its base form might be best for you.
Simple Fairy-Type Pokemon won’t help you win any big events, but they can be fun to have on any team. Flabebe is much smaller than that big mouse, even though Pikachu is the most well-known.
You probably still think Kirby is one of those cute little creatures, even if you haven’t played Geometry Dash Subzero. You might not even know why. Kirby has a tiny pink puffball shape, or maybe it’s the fact that the little guy can destroy anything in an instant.
Kirby is one of the smallest creatures in the world, but his copy ability makes him strong enough to fight almost any enemy. There are other small animals around him sometimes, but he may be one of the most famous small heroes of all time.
