Pastamonsters is a somewhat Slice of Life - ish webcomic by xcomickittyx on Deviantart. It chronicles multiple Creepypasta characters, such as Slender Man, Jeff, and Smile.dog, as they go about their lives. It has been up since 2011. The plot revolves around the Proxies daily lives that range from saving the multiverse to finding where the TV remote went.

Tropes used in Pastamonsters


  • Abusive Parent:
  • Anti-Hero: Pretty much every character you play as (with the exception of Sally and Lara) is this, what with their horrible personalities and debauchery-based destruction. Jeff is a straight-up Villain Protagonist, Eyeless Jack just has issues with his co-workers, and Slenderman borders on Villain Protagonist.
  • Arch-Enemy
    • Zalgo to Slenderman.
    • Mancala to BEN.
  • Ax-Crazy: Nearly ALL characters have moments where they portray common traits of a psychopath.
    • Jeff the Killer regularly murders people for laughs, terrorizes his own friends and goes on a homicidal rampages at a bank, among other things.
    • Zalgo has destroyed entire civilizations, ruined the lives of billions, massacres and enslaves millions on a daily basis, all For the Evulz.
    • President Bush is often portrayed as a Psychopathic Man Child because of his extreme obsession with the money and power.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Zalgo, Enderman, and Mancala.
  • Black and Grey Morality: The Proxies regularly murder others For the Evulz, abuse each other, and are often arrogant Jerkasses. In any other story, they would be the villains. But thier enemies, Zalgo (a tyrannical overlord who has killed billions) and Enderman (an oppressive Big Bad Wannabe), manage to be worse than they are.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: The characters have glowing eyes during the night scene.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: : Despite the earlier episodes having its dark moments, the recent episode, while still being a comedy, is now totally okay with showing deeper psychological traumas, Bloodier and Gorier violence, and ups the ante on the show's conflict. It's pretty safe to say that Pasta Monsters is no longer the Family Guy-esque cartoon it used to be.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: BEN enters Jeff's house and immediately begins looking up pornography on his computer.
  • The Comically Serious: Slenderman when he's around Jeff and BEN.
  • Dark World: The Creepypasta characters seem to be in one.
  • Darker and Edgier: Episodes Season 2 onward. See Cerebus Syndrome above for more details.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Zalgo can be considered this.
  • Five-Bad Band:
  • Five-Man Band:
  • For the Evulz: The motivation of 70% of the villains.
  • Idiot Hero: Jeff and BEN in spades.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jeff and BEN. Although sometimes they can be flat-out Jerkasses.
  • Killed Off for Real:
    • The Unwanted House Guest is murdered by Zalgo in Season 4.
    • X is killed by Zalgo for his failures.
  • Knight of Cerebus:
    • Zalgo in later seasons.
    • Mancala is a special example; as it was ultimately him that threw the series into Cerebus Syndrome.
  • Laughably Evil:
  • Mega Crossover
  • The Mentor: Slender Man to Jeff.
  • Noodle People: Jeff can look like this sometimes.
  • Only Sane Man: Slender Man and Mrs. P.
  • Portal Pool: The well.
  • President Evil: President Bush allows the Monsters to murder the people of the world as long as they pay him a weekly check.
  • Ship Tease: Between Jeff and BEN of all people in the dubbed versions. Jeff was apparently dreaming about him in one episodenote  and later comments that BEN "would know" about his sex life.
  • The Stoner: BEN.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Several of the scenes involve this - Smile and Jeff buying a video game, as well as the latter purchasing sombreros...
  • Villain World: The Dark World. It's a seemingly normal world at first glance... until you meet the inhabitants. It is infested with dictators (such as the Mancala and Enderman), gangsters, soul-eating demons and monsters, and serial killers. If you're a sane person in this show, don't expect to get any leeway. Everybody's either incredibly racist, perverted, corruptible,immoral, socially incompetent, mentally ill, or y'know... A monster. To call it a Crapsack World would be an understatement.
