* MoralMyopia: The protagonist of ''The World's Best School Psychologist'' thinks he has AbusiveParents because they won't buy him a Nintendo, won't let him have friends over on school nights (or go to other kid's houses they don't know the families of), and don't let him watch TV before his homework's done.

* TheTetrisEffect: Played for [[NightmareFuel all the horror it can muster]]! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkzPTO4a6Jg&index=178&list=PLDA12DF11208A4774 The Fine Line]] involves a player getting addicted to a life simulator game and becoming impressed with how real it was. NPCs reacting in realistic ways, events he caused in the game having long lasting effects on the rest of the in-game world, and how robust the physics engine seemed to be. Eventually, [[spoiler: he starts going out of his way to cause as much chaos as possible just to see how for he could push the game's realism; hi-jacking planes, causing wildfires, and even ordering components from the games internet to construct a bomb. However, in the end, he realizes the hard way that not ''all'' of what he did was in-game...]]

Creepypasta is a collection of [[NightmareFuel creepy, frightening, and/or utterly terrifying]] (and sometimes [[{{Narm}} laughably terrible]]) stories that originated from, and still are floating around, the internet. The name itself is a portmanteau of "copypasta", a term for pieces of text most commonly long-form jokes that are commonly copied and pasted throughout the internet, and "creepy". They can range anywhere from [[GhostStory ghost stories]] or [[MindScrew mind-bending]] [[SurrealHorror tales of terror]], to [[TheSlenderManMythos stories about slim businessmen.]]

* [[NothingIsScarier A fear of the unknown.]] This is where Creepypasta takes a page out of the writing of Creator/HPLovecraft. While Creepypastas usually include supernatural malevolent entities, they are rarely vampires, demons, or witches. Rather, it is an "it", [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow a force that humans have no understanding of]]. Perhaps one of the most popular (and one of the few named) examples is [[TheSlenderManMythos The Slender Man]].

* {{Minimalism}}: Most, if not all, creepypastas are a tale of a one or two (three, tops) human characters and a single monster in usually one location. Many [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender-blogs and Vlogs]] avert this. Most notably, WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. On top of that, the most popular blogs tend to acknowledge each other's existence and even have characters interact with each other, effectively turning them into a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover and creating the closest thing to a canon the mythos has.

** [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mickey's_Best_Friend Mickey's Best Friend]] is a good example of how people would ''really'' react to a "lost" episode of a normally family-friendly story with dark and disturbing subject matter--the titular Mickey Mouse short of [[spoiler:Mickey performing a lobotomy on a dog friend of his, turning him into Pluto]] is universally panned by critics who considered it to be SoBadItsHorrible, it doesn't affect anyone badly beyond giving them nightmares, MoralGuardians immediately demand that the short be banned due to the way it scared their kids and the whole thing becomes a massive OldShame for Walt Disney and everyone else involved in making it.
%%* RedSkyTakeWarning: [[http://slimebeast.com/stories/red_sky_at_night.php "Red Sky at Night"]], of course.

* TheTopicOfCancer: A Cure for Cancer has a teen genius obsessed with curing cancer infects his ex girlfriend with a bioweapon intended to cause pancreatic cancer, which he thinks will be easy to cure since he engineered it under contract by the CIA. The plan Goes Horribly Wrong, as the cancer metasizes into every single one of her organs. He remembers one of his proposed cures, which was using stem cells to remap the circulatory system, starving the tumors. This was a bust, however, since he couldn't get enough stem cells. The disease and cure react strangely, turning her into a zombie-like creature made entirely from cancer.

* FurryConfusion: "Mickey's Best Friend" provides a very dark take on this trope. [[spoiler:It turns out that Pluto was once anthropomorphic like Mickey, until Mickey lobotimized him.]]
