Earlier last week, our fearless leader Yami regaled her tales of trauma and terror as she encountered the most befouled and horrific creatures imaginable in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – including a Weavess, described in her own words as a “mutated garden gnome from your nightmares.” As a witcher, you are expected to fight and cope with all sorts of fiends and beasts. But, seriously, some of these monsters can cause even the bravest of monster slayers to look upon their visage for a single second, utter a resolute “NOPE”, and to promptly turn around and walk (or power walk… or jog… ah, screw it, run like hell) straight in the opposite direction.
In this week’s edition of Twinfinite Talks, we gathered opinions from fan and staff on Twitter and Facebook with the question “What is the worst enemy and/or creature you have fought inThe Witcher 3 – and why?” We have provided the best responses here for your enjoyment. Schadenfreude, much?
Nekkers – pretty much the horrifying fusion of a Lord Voldemort-like demon child and a Gremlin.
@Twinfinite Nekkers fo sho they are the worst, I’ve had many of nightmares about them.

I’d like to keep both of my ears pristine, thank you very much.
Chris Samson: In my search for Witcher 3 cosplays, this has haunted my dreams – the Ladies of the Wood.
I am now officially afraid of swimming. Welp.
@Twinfinite friggin water hag scared the crap outta me. Couldn’t figure out how to light my torch and she jumped me lol

Apparently Yami is forever afraid of swimming too. She even wrote an article about it in order to cope.
I feel your pain, brother.
I don’t care what her backstory is – this one’s gotta be taken down!
I ain’t afraid of no ghost!
ZhiQing Wan: WRAITHS. FUCKING WRAITHS.
So…. I’m guessing you don’t like Spider-Man as well?
Thom Peart: I did get killed by some giant spider thing in a cave that can fuck right off.
Friggin Botchlings… That’s all you have to say. At least we have a guide to handle this monstrosity.

This is some messed up, existential, Lord of The Flies philosophizing going down here.
Thom Peart: I think you’ll find the worst monsters often look like regular people. Yeah…I’m deep…
Which of these was the hardest or most horrifying monster you have fought in The Witcher 3? Was there an enemy or boss you think is worth mentioning? Feel free to share and discuss in the comments section below!
