Most ugly Castlevania character

So, what do you think about ugly looks from Castlevania characters? Here are just a few examples:

Merchant has that "come by my house sometime" vibe don't ya think?


Renon from CV64 bares a slight resemblance to James Lipton from Inside the Actor's Studio



Charle Vincent has indeed aged but also in sex appeal?


Do you find Vincent Dorin handsome? Why or why not?

how bout bizarro-Vincent? any uglier?


Brauner has that "elegant ugliness" to him i suppose


Baba Yaga lacks in sex appeal. Or does she?

Great topic!

I must choose, without a doubt, Chupacabras from Lords of Shadows as the most ugly Castlevania character.
Then again, Lords of Shadows is the game with the most ugly characters in general, because it intended to be that way I think. They tried to make the monsters like what they are, monsters. I prefer them pretty, but it's a legit aproach.

About the characters you named, I find Baba Yaga ugly, Merchant and Renon kind of creepy.
Vincent Dorin seems like a nice guy. Brauner is, as you said, an elegant villain.
And Charles Vincent is a handsome old man... in some strange way. He's got class.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

The Chupacabras in LoS are indeed ugly (and insulting) and that's only because they look nothing like the real-life counterparts.

I never cared for Vincent Dorin (or his stupid bowl cut).

Edit:





I also think Aeon and Irina belong together.

Hmm...I'm not sure about ugliest character, but in terms of sheer total ugliness, the CVIII Japanese cover takes the cake. It's like they scrounged up a handful of misshapen faces, gave Alucard a dork haircut and made Trevor look like a member of Whitesnake. One of my favorite games in the series has one of the worst covers.

Or, Christopher in his fur singlet. He looks like one half of a tag team with Superfly Jimmy Snuka.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

I notice that a lot of the characters mentioned here are only ugly either through old age or art style, and that's a bit of an unfair comparison. That being said, if I had to pick someone for the trophy of ugliness, it'd be Judgment's Golem, but given that it's an obvious substitute for the Frankenstein's monster, that'd be normal for it.

I actually don't have anything against Irina; Aeon on the other hand reminds me of a muppet...

Oh man. Judgement's version of Grant really takes the cake of ugliness.

Maxim Kishine...just not my cup of tea, but I suppose still considered a beautiful man by many standards. Oh, and Isaac from Curse of Darkness. I kinda have a thing for semi-skinny dudes (strictly aesthetically speaking, nothing deeper-personality is, amazingly, what actually counts if you wanna pique my interests), but he just...*shiver*....no. No thank you.

I suppose Medusa is the embodiment of ugliness.  For monsters, I've found the Evil Force in Order of Ecclesia to be particularly disgusting.    Hmm, now I can't help but imagine a Medusa Head and an Evil Force head on a date..

That's definitely the uglier Castlevania enemy ever!

I find it funny that the there's a look to Evil Force that's almost Freddy Krueger-ish. That little facial expression looks very Robert Englund. I always thought Evil Force looked like Freddy with horns.

Even though the game was canceled, the designs for Resurrection was pure ass:

And god, Sonia's eyebrows are ALMOST unibrowing in this one:

How can you redesign a sexy yet badass design like this:




into "Olga, the Donkey Faced Woman"? It's a SIN!!!
