** Game creepypastas got hit with this ''hard''. [[TheMostDangerousVideoGame Thanks to their setup]], most game creepypastas [[ItWontTrunOff have to]] [[AndYouThoughtItWasAGame rely on]] [[DrivenToSuicide a number of]] [[ItCanThink cliches]] to actually make the game threatening, and the ones that don't usually [[IdiotPlot have to rely on the protagonist being an idiot]] [[CuriosityKilledTheCast or curious to the point]] [[TooDumbToLive of lethality]], usually glossing over why they don't just CutTheJuice [[MundaneSolution if the game system won't shut off]]. It doesn't help that game creepypastas are also some of the worst offenders of the 'hyper-realistic' overuse as well.

** The story ''Play With Me'' is depressing too. It's about a girl named Sally who is molested by [[CreepyUncle her uncle]], and the fact her parents [[AdultsAreUseless pass it of as a nightmare]] does nothing to stop her uncle from abducting, raping and killing her. What else is Sally's ghost doesn't become evil as a result, just a hurt ghost of a innocent little girl.

* 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)]].

** While it's also prime NightmareFuel, "Literature/MaxAndRuby [[MissingEpisode 0004]]" is also one of these, considering the fact that one of the images in it is Max and Ruby standing in front of their parents' grave. Considering the fact that on the show, we never do see their parents and [[PromotedToParent Ruby tends to act more adult than a girl her age should]]...

** 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 WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.

** ''Smile.dog'' itself may have been inspired/influenced by Creator/HPLovecraft's short story, ''The Pickman's Model''.

** A lot of the "major" monsters can get this from some part of the fandom, not just Jeff the Killer. Some good examples being the Slenderman himself, X from Sonic.exe, and Laughing Jack. Jeff the Killer and the Slenderman get it the worst, though, due to being the most popular.



* TheScrappy: Clockwork: Your Time Is Up is often considered to be one of the worst Creepypastas of all time, naturally leading to the main character, Natalie, being the fandom's equivalent of [[FanFic/MyImmortal Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way]] for personifying the fandom's Mary Sue traits. And unlike JeffTheKiller, she has literally no defenders.
