** The disturbing audio described in [[http://geosheas-lost-episodes.wikia.com/wiki/South_Park_Lost_Episode this]] ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' lost episode pasta is strongly implied to be [[spoiler:the suicide of Mary Kay Bergman]].

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: "The Black Friday Incident": [[spoiler:Did the Pixar animators create that disturbing short film because they were driven to insanity from stress or was it their way of giving the [[ExecutiveMeddling meddling executives]] the proverbial middle finger]]? Given that one of them [[spoiler:killed himself]] shortly after finishing it, you might assume the former, but there is something interesting about [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Woody's]] actions in the short film--he [[spoiler:writes the word "EDGE" on the wall in blood (the executives were constantly demanding "more edge" for the movie) and tauntingly asks "Don't you want it!? Don't you ''love'' it!?" to the audience (aka, the executives that the footage is being screened for)]].

*** They especially get hit hard when you realize that the main characters could have avoided everything [[JustEatGilligan just by putting the game on their shelf and not playing it anymore.]]

** Similarly, "Blue Tears" has a sequence where Blue challenges Red to a battle. It's claimed that "there was no option to run away"...which should be obvious because in ''Pokemon'' you ''aren't allowed'' to run from trainer battles.

** In general, use of supernatural elements in creepypastas has been dying out thanks to frequent [[SturgeonsLaw less than stellar]] overuse of it in many creepypastas over the years. Cryptids ''may'' be able to skit by but over the years creepypastas have shifted from supernatural horror to underground conspiracies/organizations and ''actual'' odd real world phenomena that can be done such as [[ShownTheirWorks optical tricks or other such creepy 'mind hacks']] you can pull on yourself in real life. While creepypasta about supernatural horrors may continue to be made, it often takes a ''lot'' of effort on the writers to keep it from becoming yet more SnarkBait amongst the community.

* DiscreditedTrope: Using "Hyper-realistic" to describe anything is heavy discouraged by the Creepypasta Community at large, as the word has suffered extensive mis- and overuse and is seen as pure {{Narm}} as a result.

* IdiotPlot: More than a few creepypastas are the result of the protagonist doing something so incredibly stupid that nobody in their right mind would do. The Trollpasta wiki has an entire category on this; [[http://trollpasta.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Stupid_is_as_the_main_character_does "Stupid is as the main character does".]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: More than a few creepypastas that were once regarded as some of the best ever made have long since become prime examples of how ''not'' to write a creepypasta. A prime example would be ''Jeff the Killer''; originally regarded as one of the scariest creepypasta slashers, he's now regarded a boring VillainSue who overuses gore in his stories to downright [[DudeNotFunny offensive]] levels.

** Speaking of Spongebob, the "Spongebob Bootleg Episode's" UncannyValley still of Spongebob himself is pretty creepy and according to the Creepypasta itself, "those who look at the still long enough claim to see Spongebob blink". And if you look at it long enough? He really does...because the image is a ''gif''. There goes the WillingSuspensionOfDisbilief.
