*** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/creepy-pasta#toc0 Still hungry for more?]]
* Creepy Pasta in general, but specifically [[http://scparchive.wikidot.com/story:i-used-to-be-fearless this one]]. Writing a scary story centering around a computer with the intention of posting it on the internet is the horror equivalent of throwing bull's-eyes by standing an inch away from the dart board.
* On a couple corners of the internet, people from wooded areas on the east coast of the U.S. (such as Virginia and West Virginia) are reporting seeing the phrases "OKEE" and "33>10" graffiti'd on various walls and such. It all seemed rather harmless until someone on 4chan's /x/ (Paranormal) board mentioned a story about the "avatar of the dead god Okee" digging up corpses in West Virginia.
* Try reading the entirety of [[https://encyclopediadramatica.se/Creepypasta/Awesome_Creepypasta this]] and see if you can ever sleep again.
** "Genetic Memory" in particular is terrifying.
** Oh God [[https://encyclopediadramatica.se/File:Ghoul.gif THE ILLUSTRATIONS FROM ''SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK'' WERE NEVER MEANT TO BE ANIMATED]].
* There is a retconned "Holder of Sacrifice" story. Imagine [[spoiler:seeing everyone you know screaming and in torture]], as well as killing the Holder, who after you kill turns out to be [[spoiler:a loved one]], then waking up in a graveyard, [[spoiler:"exactly six feet over" him or her]].
* DarthWiki/CandleCove. Yes, ''that'' [[http://www.ichorfalls.com/2009/03/15/candle-cove/ Candle]] [[http://www.creepypasta.com/candle-cove/ Cove.]] Short, disturbingly realistic, and utterly creepy.
** Just like [[http://inuscreepystuff.blogspot.com/2010/11/stick-stickly.html this]] story about Stick Stickly.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2h5ym6ZlVY A video of the final episode]] got uploaded onto Youtube, by the way.
** Even worse? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4kWtiQ4rXI The poor sap who wanted to make a documentary about it.]]
* [[http://plus4chan.org/boards/coc/res/29988.html Dogscape]]. Imagine, if you will, everything becoming dogs. Literally [[MeatMoss everything]]. The story is told in multiple logs that unveil the BodyHorror that what's left of humanity has to go through, one soldier breaking through to the EldritchAbomination that started it all only to be assimilated into it, and a man tying a woman to a tree and raping her presented as a ''good thing'' in context.
* A fairly recent creepypasta, known as [[http://www.creepypasta.com/blue-light/ Blue Light]] will leave you speechless. It starts with the narrator describing how a huge bomb went off in a city close to him and his father hasn't come home yet. For three days he waits, but miraculously he comes back. He is sent away but overhears his father and mother talking. The father describes what he endured. Black tarry rain under a disturbing grey sky, people walking around barely holding onto their organs and limbs, begging for death. Children screaming into piles of rubble for their parents to "come out". Charred black corpses and live men alike hollering, moaning, some deaf and blind, limping towards the rivers to just get a drink, some not even making it that far. The narrator hears all of this, and is traumatized. If that didn't get you, the ending ''will''. He goes to school, the date? [[spoiler: August 9. The titular blue light? That was the Little Boy, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. What's worse? The story takes place in ''NAGASAKI''. What to make matters even worse? Looking at actual testimonies and accounts, this would be an ''accurate description of the aftermath''. Wanna make matters EVEN WORSE? Then take a look at the final line: "Outside the windows, a blue light flashes across the sky."]] Did I mention that he's in a room full of children of a primary age? Sweet dreams.
* Two words: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWlLgUcOv7g Suicide. Mouse.]] Watching the video after reading the Creepypasta attached to makes it 10 times more scary.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6PL8ODp8T8 This might help.]]
** Oh yeah, there is also a fan made game of it as well. [[SarcasmMode Have fun]]!
* A fairly recent [[http://www.creepypasta.com/gateway-of-the-mind/ creepypasta]] where scientists try and communicate with God. By depriving an old man of all his senses. He can't even feel pain, to the point where he tries to claw out his useless eyes just to feel something. Even worse is the very end [[spoiler:"I have spoken with God, and He has abandoned us"]].
* ''Literature/NESGodzillaCreepypasta'': The entire thing, from start to finish, as it escalates from unusual, to unsettling, to frightening, to downright malevolent. Every level manages to be HONF in its own distinct way, but special mention goes to [[EldritchAbomination Hell]][[BigBad beast]].
** [[http://nesgodzillacreepypasta.blog.com/2011/10/08/chapter-5-entropy-part-2/ The screen being covered in the word 'KILL' in blood red, eventually taking on the shape of Hellbeast's face]] is remembered by all.
*** That's nothing. The ''real'' terror is when the narrator finally reaches the end of the game. Up until this point it's just been weird though there's clearly something unnatural, but at least he ''chose'' to keep going. In the climax, he's finally put face-to-face with the Hellbeast [[spoiler: who literally paralyzes him into his seat and doesn't even so much as allow him to pause. Worse still, the narrator actually feels any damage inflicted upon his character in the game (which includes flame attacks) and, when he loses, the Hellbeast tries to stop his heart, and almost succeeds]]. The fact that the Hellbeast or "Red" as it's called, supposedly knew the narrator ''before'' he started playing the game and was somehow behind [[spoiler: the death of his girlfriend]] is also quite unnerving.
* The most terrifying ones are the ones that are written in the style of scientific documentation (like Russian Sleep Experiment or Wiki/SCPFoundation), because they're ''just so realistic''. The fact that the comments section is usually filled with people asking "omg is this real???" takes a bit of a layer off the horror, though.
** Speaking of the Russian Sleep Experiment, it's one that finds its way into most of the top 10 lists, and is regarded by some as ''the scariest Creepypasta ever''. It goes like this; the Russian government during World War II decide to keep five [=POW=]s awake for fifteen days. Long story short, they go insane. When the KGB check on them at the end of the fifteen days, they have killed one of the prisoners, self-harmed, torn out their own organs, are lying in a mixture of blood and water, want to stay awake at all costs, are consuming enough oxygen for strenuous exercise, and eaten their own flesh. It turns out they have ''transcended'' insanity: they have become completely different people, and believe that if they go to sleep, the sane people will come back and they will die. This theory isn't completely unfounded, either: the moment two of them go to sleep, their hearts stop. The story ends when a commander suggests that they go back on the gas (along with some researchers), so one of the researchers kills him and the subjects, with the last survivor giving a creepy monologue about how they are the basic form of humanity.
** NightmareRetardant is available: although the person who wrote it was obviously very good at horror, the grammar and spelling slip sometimes, and s/he apparently ''can't count'', adding in an extra subject. Also, the EEG monitor wasn't invented during WWII, and the ending monologue is both implausible and quoted from ''Series/TheTwilightZone''.
* ''The Keyhole''. It's about a guy who stays at a hotel for the night, but is warned to avoid a specific room because of a murder that occurred there. However, his curiosity gets the best of him, and he peeks through the room's keyhole to find a woman with completely white skin leaning against a doorframe, but looking away from him. He looks through the keyhole again the next day, but this time all he can see is nothing but red. When he asks the receptionist about the room, he's told that the people who were killed in the room were strange, with white skin and [[FridgeHorror completely red eyes.]]
** Actually there exists a nearly identical creepypasta in Japan (maybe the above one was based off of the Japanese one, or the other way around), only that [[spoiler: it was in the apartment the protagonist recently moved in and the neighbor with red eyes wasn't a ghost, but a living person with some kind of disease that changed his/her eye color]].
* ''[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Dead_Bart Dead Bart]]''. That is all.
** A bit of NightmareRetardant when you stumble upon the part where the protagonist wipes his computer completely clean [[InsaneTrollLogic yet can still watch the episode]].
** Actually, before wiping the computer [[WhatAnIdiot he copies the file to a CD]].
** Seriously one of the most depressingly messed up stories of all time.
*** Despite the obvious lack of technology knowledge, this is admittedly a story that's scary because it allows your mind to fill in the blanks, which was probably the point. Imagine watching the episode as you read. Remember how creepy Skinny Cartman looked when he was crucified in that one WesternAnimation/SouthPark episode? Enough said.
* And just when you think it can't get any worse, according to certain branches of Chaos Magic, every single CreepyPasta, SealedEvilInACan and EldritchAbomination is just there out of the corner of our eyes.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Blueberries Blueberries]]. The narrator is convicted of a crime he (so he says) didn't commit, and is not allowed to leave his cell until he eats an entire oak desk. [[spoiler: His sledgehammer is taken away after his initial round of smashing, and most of the pieces left over are too big to swallow. And then he sees that the top of the desk ''only broke in half.'']]
** Available in illustrated form [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJe-_gUYEB8 here (second story).]]
** And then there are the myriad of Lavender Town theories, and the [[SarcasmMode delightful]] haunted cartridges. [[SchmuckBait Try reading any of them while listening to the Lavender Town music on repeat.]]
*** And then, often lumped in with the many other Lavender Town-based creepypastas, is Pokemon Black (not the [[Videogame/PokemonBlackAndWhite actual game]], but the creepypasta born in the pre-DS era about a hacked [[Videogame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokemon Red]] cartridge). What's especially unnerving about Pokemon Black is that... it's not haunted. There's nothing supernatural at all about this story. While it would take a very skilled hacker to pull it off, it ''does'' legitimately sound like it could possibly be a real hack... and the fact that it ''could'' exist is enough to send shivers down your spine.
* The creepiest thing about some of them, like Dead Bart and Squidward's Suicide, is that the actual episodes mentioned sound like somebody actually had a nightmare about ''TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', and are now just telling you what happened in it.
* The creepiest thing about Russian Sleep Experiment is the fact that it shows you what could happen if you were deprived of sleep. What side effects are there of reading too much creepypasta? Yeah. Sweet dreams.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Pill The Pill]] is probably the best CosmicHorrorStory on the wiki.
* Probably the creepiest thing in HappyAppy is when an episode of the titular show depicts the events of 9/11 two years before the attacks take place. Then when part of the plane lands on and pins a child to the ground, Happy and the other children stand over him as he's screaming in pain. The other children ask Happy (who's thing is healing children but actually killing them just because by the way) if they can help the boy, Happy just coldly states "That's natural, children." and leaves the boy to die.
** While the first few episodes were terrifying, they became [[NightmareRetardant unintentially hilarious]] for some once the primary focus shifted to the titular apple murdering children in often exaggerated ways. Even so, the subplot featuring the protagonist being repeatedly stalked by an unknown figure who eventually [[spoiler: burns down his house]] provides plenty of nightmare fuel on its own.
* While Jeff the Killer isn't particularly scary himself, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jeffthetroper_535.png his face]] makes for an excellent shock image that is very hard to get out of your head.
** For those of you to scared to look up the image, imagine Michael Jackson and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker mixed into one single abomination.
** His origin story: getting disfigured in a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown with a bully, losing his mind, killing his family, and then starting a killing spree.
** Though for some, Jeff the Killer's origin story is unintentionally hilarious NightmareRetardant.
** Unfortunately, said image has become so utterly repeated over the Internet and has been used for humorous purposes so many times that it's become NightmareRetardant.
%% [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Normal_Porn_For_Normal_People Normal Porn For Normal People]], ''holy fucking shit''. If you've ever seen something messed-up on the Internet that you wish you didn't, then you can relate to this story. You will be rocking back and forth, cold sweat, heart pounding by the end. Just be glad the version you're about to read isn't a .png image.
%%** The worst part about this one? There aren't any overt supernatural elements. ''This could happen to YOU.''
* If you live in a rural area, this one [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Skinwalker]] could give you nightmares. especially given that its a story about [[spoiler:The Rake]].
** Now [[http://creepypastanetwork.com/arcanerazil-reads-skinwalker-ft-spooky-spaghetti/#comments narrated.]]
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Face_in_the_Middle_of_Dark "The Face in the Middle of the Dark"]], but not ''just'' because of the story. [[spoiler: Scroll to the bottom of the page, and you'll see. You won't notice it at first.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-VkhGoxWT4&feature=plcp This]] reading makes it worse, if you can believe it.
*** The face is has been proven to be {{Narm}} for some, or merely NightmareRetardant-it looks so much like Jeff, a load of comments are ranting about how another [[OverusedCopycatCharacter ripoff]] has happened, or just "DAMMIT JEFF!" or "Goddammit Jeff, tell your little sister to go back to bed and stop scaring that poor old lady next door!"
* Sim Albert has a bit of FridgeHorror in it - more when you consider that Albert was a child's ghost who was [[HauntedTechnology haunting the game, and using it as a second chance at life]]. However, if left alone, Albert himself dies in a fire set by his psychotic housemates. The narrator describes that several others had the house, too, and that if they left it alone, Albert dies in the fire. Consider this - he's stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop. Until someone [[VideoGameCaringPotential breaks it, and give him the life he never had]].
* Most of the written Creepypastas are bad enough when read, but having somebody ELSE read them? Look no further than the aptly named [[http://www.youtube.com/user/MrCreepyPasta "Mr. Creepy Pasta"]] (now has his own wiki page [[MrCreepyPasta]]. The narrator normally doesn't sound bad - in fact, he sounds like a normal guy, occasionally stuttering and slipping up on his words. But when you remember most of the Creepypastas he reads are about ordinary guys, often after they've hit a DespairEventHorizon, or HeroicBSOD, or are otherwise beginning to FreakOut from the assorted horrors they're put through, his voice nearly acts as an AudienceSurrogate for the reactions the viewer would have in the narrator's position. Throw in some creepy music and StockSoundEffects (some doubling as [[ScareChord Scare Chords]], like screams, gunshots, etc.), and Mr. Creepy Pasta is able to jack the horror of nearly any Creepypasta even further than one could conceive. Oh, and by the way, his library of narrations is EXTENSIVE at this point, and includes most of the aforementioned stories, other good ones not mentioned, some that were actually [[ClicheStorm cliche-ridden]] and [[NarmCharm semi-Narmy]] until he... [[NiceJobBreakingItHero "fixed"]] them... and even has collections of "original" Creepypasta. All in all, if one's SOMEHOW getting jaded from Creepypasta... Mr. Creepy Pasta will make all those stories scary again...
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/G%C3%BCndschau_Effect The Gündschau Effect]], a story about a Nazi experiment with Polish prisoners to test the effects on people's moralities if they're fed very good food, but are otherwise in hell.
** This was done in [[TruthInTelevision real life]], only not by the Nazis. Solzhenitsyn and others who were guests of the Gulag recount how this was standard practice at the Moscow Lubyanka, the prison/interrogation centre that was the first point of call for those accused of anti-Soviet benhaviour. Prisoners were starved, tortured, deprived of sleep, had their sleep frequently disturbed by noises and bright lights... but were fed the best possible food prepared by gourmet chefs. This mind-fucked many into signing confessions so as to go on to places where their treatment would at least be consistently nasty so they knew where they stood. Alexander Solzhenitsyn recalled a variant on this: prisoners would be treated with care and basic human decency (with a hint of worse to come). However, their meals were faithfully home-cooked to a standard they'd expect at home. There would just be less than a child-sized portion on the plate, to both keep them hungry and to act as an agonisingly tantalising reminder of the normality they had been dragged away from. This too coould drive a prisoner to confess out of sheer homesickness and cumulative malnutrition.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/LIARS "Liars"]]. Jeez it's the more horrifying and more depressing version of "Jeff the Killer". The description of the videotape is by far the worst part.
** The writer describes the corrosion of the protagonist's skin with acid like it actually happened to him, making it even more disturbing.
*** And while the smile description at the very end is disturbing, look at the main image and imagine THAT being the last thing you see before you die.
* Would you believe that Manga/AxisPowersHetalia isn't safe from this? ''Axis Powers Hetalia: Episode 23.5'' is an apparent "LostEpisode" of Hetalia that takes place while the Axis are camping on the beach. They run out of food, end up having to make a [[ImAHumanitarian very rash decision]] and... well, let's just say [[spoiler:poor Italy gets the short end of the stick]]. Did we mention that there are [[{{Squick}} pictures]] and they very closely resemble the ''real'' Hetalia?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltyW0zP9Aeg This]] reading of "The .GIF" [[spoiler: which turns into a '''god-damn [[JumpScare screamer]]''']].
* [[http://slimebeast.com/stories/funnymouth.php "Funnymouth"]] is not particularly scary in itself, but the author made it seem very real. He took the name of a forum-goer with several quotes on Bash.org, he set up the website mentioned in the story, exactly as it was described in the story, and if not for the dream invasions, the villain could have just been a really good {{Troll}}.
* [[http://www.creepypasta.com/psychosis/ Psychosis]], about a man who slowly comes to believe that everyone but him has disappeared and been replaced by some EldritchAbomination, is an extremely scary story likely to induce serious ParanoiaFuel in you. Particularly effective is the WhamLine at the end.
--> [[spoiler: "After all, a sane man would have fallen for the deception long ago."]]
** Although the man is technically wrong. Nobody has been ''[[ExactWords replaced]]'' by an EldritchAbomination. [[spoiler:The EldritchAbominations are {{Puppeteer Parasite}}s controlling everyone, and the people are all [[AndIMustScream fully aware of everything going on but unable to do anything about it]].]]
* "[[http://www.creepypasta.com/self-preservation/ Self Preservation]]" Imagine a zombie apocalypse, except [[spoiler: the zombies are ''very much'' the people they once were, crying and apologizing as they devour their neighbors alive, ''actively trying to prolong their demise'' just to keep themselves from dying a no less horrible death.]] It's difficult to tell who you should feel sorry for.
** Also a TearJerker.
* "[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Abandoned_by_Disney Abandoned By Disney]]". A curious blogger sneaks into an {{Expy}} of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discovery_Island_(Bay_Lake) Discovery Island]] Disney resort, whose very existence Disney has attempted to censor after inexplicably abandoning it. At first it appears to be just an impressive case of urban decay but then the author started noticing things are "off", with meat hooks in the kitchen swinging for no reason, the water still running despite everything else crumbling, hearing whispers, and dangerous animals from the resort still living in the ruins. And after encountering some of the Resort's released wildlife he finds the Mascot Dressing Rooms... and discovers there was a damn good reason why Disney pulled out and wants no-one getting into the resort... or anything getting out.
** The same author later released a [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/A_Few_Suggestions parody prequel]] of this story in the form of an employee suggestion box for the resort while it was still active. While played for laughs initially, it still gets extremely sinister once fridge horror sets in as it describes [[spoiler: the first supernatural events in the resort, the resulting insanity among the staff, and finally the employees becoming trapped in the possessed mascot suits, even as their bodies rot and die and the remaining staff locking everyone inside the park as the demonic "negative Mickey" from the original story emerges.]]
** And now there is a fully fledged sequel by the same author [[http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/room-zero/ "Room Zero"]] in which the same blogger has to deal with being stalked by some unknown party which is extremely irritated at his publicising the truth about Discovery Island (and anyone else who reposts his story) all while he delves into a series of even more sinister events at Disneyworld as told by some anonymous employees, including the "Gascot" sightings of unknown people wearing [[http://historydetectives.nyhistory.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/mickey-mouse-gas-mask.jpeg disturbing Disney themed Gas Masks]], the eldritch events at a waterslide, the sinister "corpse disposal" procedure for Mascots who suddenly die, and the seedy underbelly of Disney's exclusive clubs. All of which subtly or directly revolve around an unspeakably nightmarish incident in the 1970s which seems to be the cause of all the demonic events at the Disney resorts.
*** Furthermore the sequel provides several gallons of Fridge Horror when considering the aforementioned "parody" prequel given how its heavily implied [[spoiler: that the "Gascots" succumbed to the same demonic possession as the Mowgli's Palace Mascots, which coupled with the "dead mascot disposal" instructions suggests that anyone who wears a Disney mask or costume is in danger of being possessed. ]]
** The final installment [[http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/corruptus/ Corruptus]] explains pretty much everything. You see, [[spoiler: Disney promotes "wishing upon a star" and believing in things in movies right? If people believe hard enough, things ''will'' happen. Disney wants something to happen, they want people to believe something they can exploit into existence. The Gascots, the inverted Mickey, and the Room Zero incident were all caused by the people. The potent fear of nuclear war and the unanimous hatred of Disney destroying their neighborhood brought the beings (the CORRUPTUS) into existence. These things are the prototypes, the imperfect, hate born prototypes. And we learn that ''there are more.'']]
* "[[http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/extra-ketchup/ Extra Ketchup]]" [[TheReveal What was inside that truck]] after the protagonist desperately tries to escape from the BurgerFool...
--> "[[spoiler:The truck was full of children. Some in pajamas, others dressed for school or church, some naked and others wearing heavy clothing that was all wrong for that time of year. Some were moving, others appeared to be long dead and decaying, bone showing through greenish skin. They were packed in there. Not standing shoulder to shoulder or sitting in a cluster, but PACKED. On top of each other. Floor to ceiling.]]"
** And after escaping, his reaction to realizing [[spoiler:he had to go to ''Stonebridge'', not ''Bridgestone'']]:
--> "I sat alone in the dark, and [[LaughingMad all I could do was laugh uncontrollably... laugh, laugh, laugh... and I haven't been able to stop since.]]"
* "[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Cemetery The Cemetery]]" puts a twist on the original urban legend [[http://www.scaryforkids.com/grave-digger/ "Grave Digger"]]. Let just say, Pa had a good reason for asking those questions.
* Almost every single short story credited to Slimebeast. Not only responsible for the creation of "Abandoned by Disney" and "Extra Ketchup" above, but a whole slew of the most inexplicably terrifying Creepypastas can be attributed to him [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Slimebeast here]]
* "[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Nightlight Nightlight]]" is more unsettling than outright scary, but it still applies here since it's never been certain whether the creature in the narrator's dreams really was a figment of his imagination or a real entity.
* "On A Hill" [[http://www.creepypasta.com/on-a-hill/ Part 1]] and [[http://www.creepypasta.com/on-a-hill-part-ii-2/ Part 2]]. It shows a darker portrayal of the Scottish highlands by the form of a lonely hill in a small, unassuming village whose very presence fills the locals with all-consuming fear and trepidation. And for good reason too, because the abandoned church at the very crown of the cursed mass is not completely abandoned, as our unfortunate protagonist finds out when he ventures there by his lonesome.
** It doesn't help that it's incredibly well-written by Creepypasta standards.
* "[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Crawling_House_on_Black_Pond_Road The Crawling House on Black Pond Road]]". Entomophobia at its very finest.
* A huge YMMV applies here, but many find [[http://thereissomethingbehindme.blogspot.ca/2012/12/the-house-that-death-forgot.html The House That Death Forgot]] unnerving, even if not all that scary. The consensus seems to be that it's very well-written for a creepypasta, and thus the realism adds to the creepy factor.
* "[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Kagome_Kagome Kagome Kagome]]". What the Nazi scientists did to those children as part of their immortality research. Even worse in that while the disclaimer below admits the creepypasta is fabricated, he points out that the Nazis nonetheless did send a research team to Japan to experiment with immortality. And it was done on children. In an orphanage.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2RFcrreoE8&oref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Di2RFcrreoE8&has_verified=1 Now in song form]]. Seriously, I had no idea there was a creepy pasta that mentions the same topic.
* Most creepypastas on the [[http://www.crappypasta.com/ Crappypasta]] site. Mind-bendingly awful but in a completely different flavor. Although some have had the ignominy to reach [[MemeticMutation memetic status]].

* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Rap_Rat Rap Rat]] and [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Mix Mr. Mix]]: Warning! Clicking on this link will put you face to face (geddit) with two of the most hideous faces straight from the black hole of the UncannyValley. Like many others popping up these days, each is about an old VHS game inhabited by an indescribable evil. However, both still manage to be terrifying because they come from ordinary 1990s video games specifically catering towards little children.
** Fun Fact: [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou Rap Rat was a real board game, complete with a creepy VHS. Sweet dreams!]]
** Rap Rat is also a powerful source of ParanoiaFuel and TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou, since it is implied that whatever evil has possessed the game will come to haunt you to insanity for simply saying its name! Needless to say, the story made me sleep with the lights on for a few nights afterwards.
** Then there's the ending, which brings up the fact that not even the "normal" video may be safe. The Rap Rat comes off as a creepy-looking, annoying, but harmless puppet... [[ParanoiaFuel which could very well be an act to put your fears at ease before stalking you day and night]].

** Not to mention that being stalked by unseen predators is a strong PrimalFear.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Stoic_Gaze The Stoic Gaze]]. Basically it's a story about a simple walk to school gone wrong [[spoiler: when the main character's younger sister somehow goes berserk and chases her through a suddenly snowing terrain before cornering and stabbing her to death after pushing her into rushing traffic. And all that begins to level up after she stumbles over her own dying corpse!]]
* [[http://myhatisblue.deviantart.com/art/Yellow-Raincoat-427054412 "Yellow Raincoat"]]. [[spoiler: A story about a recluse whose dreams start forming their own world, complete with warped buildings that slowly close up the world, and a mysterious HumanoidAbomination that will mess with you, and when it finally decides to get you, will never let you escape through your dreams again]]. Yet another reason to never go to sleep again.
** Dives headlong into TearJerker territory at the end when it's implied that [[spoiler:said recluse [[DespairEventHorizon grows so depressed]] over the nightmares that he [[DrivenToSuicide decides to overdose on painkillers in an attempt to kill himself and stop the madness.]] That we never know if it works or not only adds to the nightmare fuel.]]
** Yet another thing that makes this story chilling is that it's not made clear whether the creature in the story is a figment of the protagonist's imagination, or a physical existing entity with the power to invade his dreams.
* [[http://www.creepypastaindex.com/creepypasta/on-the-bus On the Bus]]. Just because society has modernized doesn't mean classic superstitions don't as well.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Happy_Sun_Daycare Happy Sun Daycare]]. The story focuses on a reporter who is investigating an old abandoned daycare, and then he finds out through various interviews that said daycare has a dark secret. It's creepy enough with [[spoiler:children being sent to a large empty room]] and a series of mysterious scratches and bites that lead the reporter to discover that the daycare had [[spoiler:been using some sort of large dog to terrorize the children into behaving.]] However, it's the reveal at the end that makes it all the scarier.
-->''[[spoiler:Since when do dogs walk on two legs?]]''
** [[FridgeHorror Exactly how and where the daycare even managed to acquire an animal like that isn't something to be pondered]].
** [[spoiler:There are hints scattered throughout the story that suggest the dog may have been the janitor who was kept in the room as a safety measure and a scare tactic for unruly children whenever his aunt's herbal medicine wasn't around to prevent the transformation.]]
** A mixture of FridgeHorror and TearJerker. The fact that the staff at the daycare are [[spoiler:using the janitor's Lycanthropy as a means to frighten unruly children.]] Imagine being afflicted with a horrifying condition like that, but, instead of someone trying to find a cure for it, they instead take advantage of your disease and us it for their own purposes. Even worse is if that person happens to be [[spoiler:one of your own relatives.]]
*** Not to mention that he never becomes aware of what's ''really'' wrong with him.
** Even more FridgeHorror. [[spoiler:Mr. Smith]] is still alive. In other words, [[spoiler:there's a werewolf loose and could potentially attack innocent people.]]
*** There's also those kids who got bitten and/or scratched. While it's never revealed how [[spoiler:the janitor became a werewolf]], the story also never says whether or not his condition is contagious.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Laughing_Jack Laughing Jack]] gives even more reasons to be afraid of clowns. And the fact that he's a clown is just the tip of the iceberg, as there's more AdultFear than you can shake a stick at, as well as [[spoiler: a nasty KickTheDog moment and a whopper of a horrifying DownerEnding.]] You'll never listen to "Pop Goes the Weasel" the same way again.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/A_Bright_Flash A Bright Flash ]], which is written by the same author as ''Happy Sun Daycare''. Long story short, the narrator describes how he was disfigured by an explosion and proceeds to take vengeance upon humanity for causing his misfortune. During the climax, he describes the anarchy he causes in a small fishing village including buildings collapsing and crushing people to death, people being burned to death by fire (including descriptions of those who tried to run to the ocean to put out the flames), and streets littered with crashed cars and fallen power lines and street lamps.
** TheReveal at the end when a fatally wounded old man looks up at the narrator and says his final words.
-->[[spoiler:"Gojira...."]]
** Just the fact that the story is told from [[spoiler:Godzilla's]] perspective is terrifying. Someone wanting revenge for being wronged is scary enough. Now imagine if that someone is [[spoiler:a giant radioactive dinosaur.]]
* The picture converted from the mysterious text file in the MARIO creepypasta is possibly the single most scariest image on the wiki to date.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/1999 1999]]. A journal pasta about a young man, who as a child, recounts experiencing a [[SubvertedKidsShow unsettling kids tv channel]] that was broadcasting from a town not far from his, but as he didn't know at the time that [[spoiler: the channel was operated by a [[PedoHunt pedophile]] who abused, tortured, drugged and later [[AdultFear murdered]] [[WouldHurtAChild the children]] that had appeared in his broadcasts, and the worst part is that he's still out there.]]
** Also unsettling is the fact that the narrator himself almost ended up in the same position. It was just a total coincidence that the time of his "visit" matched up with the time the police started investigating.

* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Photographs The Photographs]]. The scariest thing is that whoever took the pictures inside the tent didn't [[NothingIsScarier do anything else]]. They could have done anything to the woman since at the time she was completely by herself in the woods

* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Wake_Up Wake Up]] enters around reports that a victim of torture/rape will retreat into a catonic state where they'll live in a world similar to their own, only without being aware that they're victims. Things get creepy when the story adds that the brain will try to send signals to said victim to reveal to them the horrible truth about what's happening to them. The brain will keep trying to make the victim wake up, but the victim might not realize until it's took late. Either that, or they'll refuse to believe that they're being tortured/raped, which will cause the brain to keep telling the victim that they should [[spoiler: [[FridgeHorror "PLEASE WAKE UP."]] ]]

* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Check_the_Camera Check the Camera.]] The story itself is creepy enough, but the photo that accompanies it...GAH.
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Since_the_Incident Since The Incident]] is a Creepypasta that takes place five years after an unspecified war resulting in a supposed outbreak that wiped out most of the population. The narrator, one of the survivors, talks about how the most dangerous thing in the post-apocalyptic world are [[NotUsingTheZWord "Them".]] They are described as irrationally violent, dangerous in groups, and tend to travel aimlessly while shuffling about and moaning. Then, the ending reveals that "Them" are not what you think.
--> [[spoiler:"I wish the living would leave us alone."]]
** The fact that the [[spoiler:humans]] are killing the [[spoiler:zombies]] for no other reason other than out of irrational fear and hatred towards the latter is terrifying in and of itself.

It basically massacred most of the prison's population of inmates]]
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Dogscape Dogscape]]. Almost everything on Earth has turned into dogs, and humanity must survive in the harsh world that results. Highlights of creepy stuff include:
** Dog mouths that appear all over the ground and eat anybody who step in them.
** A soldier getting so consumed by rage that he manages to [[spoiler: dig down into the core of the Dogscape and find the brain of the EldritchAbomination responsible for changing the world into its current state, only to get tied down by several tentacles and assimilated into it.]]
** "Dog Mounds" that dot the landscape. In other words, [[spoiler: female genitalia that some humans, out of desperation, start copulating with so they can feel pleasure once more. They usually stay in the same spot until they die.]]
** Humanity being so desperate to keep existing that a man [[spoiler: tying a woman to a tree and keeping her there so he can rape her]] is considered "good" from the context of the story. Except even after [[spoiler: [[HopeSpot a child is born from this rape]], a tentacle emerges from the ground and drags both the mother and child into the ground, where they are torn apart by dogs]].
* [[http://thereissomethingbehindme.blogspot.ca/2014/05/shut-that-damned-door.html Shut That Damned Door!]] puts a weird spin on the eccentricities some older people may have. In this case, after the death of his parents, the narrator is sent to live with his Aunt Louise, who turns out not to be as bad as he thinks, with the exception that she insists that all the doors in her house remain shut at all times, though only one remains locked; the sub-basement. When our hero manages to unlock that door, he realizes why, finally; [[spoiler: in the basement is a door that cannot be closed, and ''something'' is in that room, which contains another door, beyond which lays only darkness. Louise didn't have the strength to cross the room and close the door, so she has closed every other door, hoping the opening and closing of all the doors will alert her when whatever is in that black room finally comes out.]]
* [[http://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/2pl8cl/a_successful_trade/ A Successful Trade]] describes how the narrator and his ability to revive the dead by borrowing the remaining years a living thing has left and putting them into the deceased body. To make extra money, he brings back the bodies of his customers' loved ones by using animals they agreed to bring with them. However there is a time limit where the trade must occur 72 hours after the recipient has died. [[CameBackWrong Or else.]]
** In addition, the procedure requires a sacrifice. But not human, never human....
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Cave_Children Cave Children]] It tells about an expedition to Pohnpei in which 4 scientists go to see what's behind some unexplored caves. They are told stories about creatures known as [[TitleDrop "Cave Children"]] with [[GiantEnemyCrab transluscent skin, one single eye, 4 legged and overall, pretty big]], but the main reason it's to see one breed of [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower lizards that are capable of throwing rocks incredible distances.]] The first few paragraphs are overall pretty normal, we see both the lizards and the Cave Children. But further reading reveals that [[spoiler: that when one is killed, it's not a crustacean, but actually [[BodyHorror an upside down hominid, similar to a human, what whas thought it was the eye, it was his mouth, the so called tail, was in fact, genitalia, and what was believed they were wings, was in fact their ribcage.]] [[FromBadToWorse And that's not all.]] one of the scientists loses her mind and ends up [[StupidSacrifice sacrificing herself]]. It's told in a few sentences, but her fate, is not left ambiguous: She's raped and killed. Afterwards the last surviving scientist tries to eat, patch himself up, escape and end taping the expedition, but everything proves futile]] At the end it's told another expedition group find a Children near this tape. It's described as being a little bit stouter than most Children and with [[spoiler: [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie bandages wrapped around it's arms.]]]]
* [[http://thereissomethingbehindme.blogspot.ca/2014/05/what-hell-is-that-song.html What the Hell is That Song]] doesn't seem scary at first until you realize that the narrator is...not well. And who hasn't [[spoiler: had a song in their head they can't get rid of, and is it a sign of your own insanity?]]
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/A_Late_Night_Sledding A Late Night Sledding]] brings about this with NothingIsScarier. The narrator describes their friends Megan and Christina disappearing into a poorly lit area of a park while sledding during the late evening - They don't answer when the narrator and their friends call for them, Megan doesn't pick up her phone. The narrator goes down to look for them only to find that there is water down there, as if the park is flooding. Eventually, the two girls come ''tearing'' out of the park and they tell them to just "RUN!". They follow the girls home as the soaked girls warm up, and they never say just what it was that happened, and still avoid the park to this day. Just what happened to them?
** [[FridgeHorror It gets worse if you think about it]]... Did Megan and Christina get caught in a freak flood and nearly drown? Larry did leave once it got dark... was there a monster in the park that Megan and Christina escaped from? Or even worse... was there a sexual predator lurking there who caught Christina and Megan, and silenced them so they couldn't call for help? Larry, the other kid, seemed to imply something happened after dark... OhCrap. [[AdultFear What if Larry was a previous victim of this sexual predator?]]
* [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Staff The Staff]] A seemingly simple walking stick destroys several lives. [[spoiler:The fact that the narrator has it in his possession at the end may make it worse, or better, as it doesn't seem intent on hurting him for some reason]].
