** The story ''Play With Me'' is depressing too. It's about a girl named Sally who is molested by 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.

* 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 equvilaent of [[FanFic/MyImmortal Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way]] for personifying the fandom's CommonMarySueTraits.

* BaseBreaker: ''WebOriginal/JeffTheKiller'', for what seems to be that he's a less abstract and surreal character in his conception, and more of a [[ClicheStorm rather basic]] horror movie character. He also edges into "InvincibleVillain" territory sometimes.

* FridgeHorror: These stories can sometimes be composed of this. In the case of ''Pokemon: Scary Black'' and ''Pokemon: Lost Silver'', one must wonder who would be sadistic enough to make such hacks, and why they would distribute them on plastic cartridges rather than on the web.

* HilariousInHindsight: A few years after ''Squidward's Suicide'' Nickelodeon would go on to release an actual ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants'' episode called "Are You Happy Now?" where the reoccurring joke is Squidward is depressed and looks like he might commit suicide (but in the typical GettingCrapPastTheRadar way ''[=SpongeBob=]'' is known for of course). It's actually a theory that someone on the writing staff did it on purpose [[AscendedMeme as a nod to the Pasta]].

** This is par for the course in video game and lost episode pastas. Whatever the story does right, it doesn't change the fact that you're basically reading a DarkFic of a silly, idealistic, and all around nonthreatening work like ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' or ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''. If, on the other hand, the source material is serious and cynical, then people are already expecting something dark, which is a problem since these pastas typically rely on SurpriseCreepy. It's no coincidence that the majority of entries on the Trollpasta Wiki fall into these sub-genres. Pastas about an original ShowWithinAShow tend to fare better, as they are not burdened with the reader's expectations of other stories.

** Critics of ''Spongebob'' say that the show has gotten too dark and mean-spirited in recent years. Some joke that the writers read creepypastas and decided to make official episodes like that.

** [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Lost_Superman_Cartoon The Lost Superman Cartoon]] mentions a lost [[SupermanTheatricalCartoons Superman cartoon]] where Superman murders Stalin via his EyeBeams. The thing is, Superman didn't ''have'' heat vision in the 1940's, not even in the Fleischer cartoons!

** ''I Hate You'' was written by the critically acclaimed Creator/SlimeBeast. It enjoyed a small climb in popularity before plunging down into crappypasta territory and in usually veiwed as SlimeBeast's weakest work.

** The story ''"Abandoned By Disney"'' has the narrator discovering, in a previously locked room in an abandoned resort, [[spoiler: the corpses of the employees and the...''thing'' that killed them. He runs and escapes with his life, but he makes no mention of having re-locked the door. Whatever was in that room, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero may have just escaped into the world at large.]]]]

* ItsPopularNowItSucks: How those who dislike Jeff The Killer and Slenderman feel. Just check out any rant videos about them on Youtube sometime.

** The premises of some creepypastas may unsettle audiences until further detail of the pastas is given, as in "Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv" where the absurd and overly-dramatic detail that [[spoiler:the viewers of the video gouged their eyes out THEN mailed them to Youtube's main office]] is given.

Added DiffLines:

** Slenderman, either one of the most scariest and original monsters of the modern era or a overrated monster that has overstayed his welcome. Much like Jeff the general dislike is due to overexposure.

* 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.
