If you had a demonic "thing" in a game. What would be the funniest?

Steamroller? Lawnmower? Combine Harvester?

Something else?

A thing, like a mechanical thing? "Chased" implies the ability to possibly catch you, so something really slow could be outright silly and impossible -- think the crawlers that transport the Saturn V to the launch pad. "Steam rollers" can go surprisingly fast (faster than a walk), but as a class, "motor rollers" are slower (technical distinction between steam powered and internal combustion powered).

What about a cursed electric wheelchair, once owned by an evil scientist who died in it, and his twisted spirit lives on inside the mechanism of the machine? Folks are tempted to sit in it and give it a drive, only to find it takes them off a cliff, and they die, but it survives to kill and kill again.

Funniest? Something that's normally not just harmless but BORING. A demonic colander or a demonic bike rack or something.

A helium balloon: high-pitched squeaky voice "I'll catch you! You'll never get away from meeee!" as it floats away into the sky (then periodically reappears between the clouds, still calling).

Or a giant hedgehog.

I like this, but I'd make it a haunted Segway.

+1 for demonic electric wheelchair or scooter. My father-in-law uses one and my constant fear is that it will accidentally roll over and break my foot.

+1 for helium balloon. More specifically, the mute red balloon from The Red Balloon hunting you down. Yo, that sh*t is scary!

A massive dung ball that rolled loose from a giant dung beetle and chases you.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes - surprised it hasn't already been done.

It's already alive, but a giant walking angler fish, where we're all running away slow motion in old-school diving suits, looks funny in my imagination, not sure how it work in a game. Slow-motion chases are always funny in movies.

A puppy or a kitten.

Hmm. On second thought, that's a toss-up for "cutest."

Funniest? Patton Oswalt or Maria Bamford.

I'm not sure there's one funniest thing because humor depends on the interplay between context and... blah, blah, blah...

This makes me think of the Supernatural episode where Dean is freaking out running away in terror and it turns out to be a little white dog with a pink bow, not chasing him, just following him! laugh
