Divine Creatures of Darkness


Appearances: Look-See (The Wedding Hand, The Mistress Mind, The Father's Hug, Mysterious Man, The Backwards Watch, The Second Home, The Second Thief, The Second Love, The Second Hands), Fatal Wish, Look-See vs. Mordeo, Letting Go, Look-See vs. Sunny Family Cult, Look-See Bus Accident, Full Circle

Played by: Sean Brison
"If you yourself cannot release, then it will come to take a piece."

A sinister, eyeless figure with a Slasher Smile, dressed in a suit. Leaves behind ominous notes for its victims warning them to "release" before it comes to take a piece.

  • Always a Bigger Fish: It serves as this to the Sunny Family Cult in Look-See vs. Sunny Family Cult.
  • Anti-Villain: It's goal is simply to make people release themselves from their internal conflicts like grief and regret only killing the target when it is unable to release
  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Adorned in red, fingerless gloves, too.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Its general attire, spoiled only by its raggedy fingerless gloves.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Its MO is to target people who are unable to "release" themselves from their grief, guilt, obsession or whatever internal conflict is keeping them "stuck" in their lives. The target's circumstances can range from sympathetic (a father grieving over his lost daughter) to Asshole Victim-ish (the mistress who is obsessed with a married man).
    • Season 2 expands on this, in which three men murder a banker (who also happens to be the Look-See's first victim of the season). Two of the men feel guilty over their actions, and are killed by the Look-See. However, the third man - the one who actually stabbed the banker - has no remorse or regret, and is thus spared by the Look-See.
  • Big Bad: Of the entire "Look-See" series, with each episode focusing on him torturing a different victim.
  • Evil Laugh: Occasionally lets out a quiet chuckle, most notably when Raymond tries to stab it with a knife.
  • Evil vs. Evil: There are a few side videos where the Look-See ends up in conflict with the likes of Mordeo, Soot, Telos, and the Sunny Family Cult.
    • The Look-See generally doesn't get along well with any of the other Crypt Tv monsters, usually due to the fact that the Look-See's pool of victims frequently overlaps with theirs.
  • Expy: Of the Slender Man. Visually, the only discernible difference is that the Look-See has a necrotic Slasher Smile.
  • Eyeless Face: Has no eyes, but that doesn't stop it from finding its prey.
  • Humanoid Abomination: An eyeless figure with rotting skin, sharp teeth, and claws. What else do you need?
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: It might be horrifying and kills people, but only wants for them to release themselves from their own grief and regrets and only kills to put them out of their misery when they cannot release.
  • Monster Lord: One of at least four monsters in the CryptTV universe described as "divine creatures of darkness."
  • Noble Demon: Warns its victims with ominous notes before hunting them.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Does this frequently.
  • Phrase Catcher: "If you yourself cannot release, then it will come to take a piece." The Look-See itself never says it, but the phrase always shows up when or just before it comes around.
  • Slasher Smile: Typically does this when it's about to do something nasty to its victim.
    • Subverted in Episode 2 of Season 2. When the Look-See realizes that one of its intended victims has no regrets for his actions (murder), its smile noticeably drops, and it lets the man go.
  • Summon Magic: Of a sort. Its third-person Catch Phrase seems to serve as a beacon to it when a suitable target comes in contact with it. Normally this just makes it show up and attack people who come across it as graffiti or find a note, but it's been exploited at least once to sick the Look-See on someone in particular.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: With a couple of exceptions (the security guard in Season 1, the killer in Season 2), it never stops pursuing its intended targets.
  • The Voiceless: Has not said a word so far. (That being said, hardly anyone in the series speaks.)
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Only wants is for it's victims to release themselves from their internal conflicts but if they cannot release then it will come to take a piece.

    The Birch 

Appearances: The Birch, Locking the Door
"He who breaks me...Shall come undone."
Played by: Dee Sherwood Wallace

A sentient tree capable of being summoned through a spellbound book, and upon being summoned, will supposedly "protect" the one who brought them into this world. During "The Birch", it is summoned by a bullied schoolboy named Kris to protect him from his personal tormentor.

  • Anti-Villain: While it may be a monster, it still has the sole goal of protecting the one who summons it, and nothing more. It just so happens that said way of protection tends to involve murder. In "Brute vs Birch", it's entirely heroic, as it's pitted against a genuinely monstrous, evil creature and protects the narrator from the Brute and ultimately defeats it by knocking it back into the door and allowing it to be sealed away again.
  • Botanical/Humanoid Abomination: She manifests in the form of a grotesque humanoid woman that looks as though she had grown naturally from a birch tree.
  • Bully Hunter: It's her influence that causes Kris to murder his personal bully, Shaun.
  • Declaration of Protection: Upon being summoned, it will dedicate herself to protecting the summoner.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Due to it's protective nature, it seems to genuinely care quite a bit about the safety of those who summon it.
  • Mama Bear: Supposedly becomes fiercely protective of anyone who summons her into reality.
  • Monster Lord: One of at least four monsters in the CryptTV universe described as "divine creatures of darkness."
  • Mysterious Protector: We know very little about them besides the fact that they'll protect whoever summons them.
  • Noble Demon: It isn't a heartless creature. It simply is doing what it thinks best in order to protect the one who summoned it. Best highlighted by "Brute vs Birch", where it is pitted against the far more malevolent Brute and is depicted as completely benevolent.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: In "Birch vs Brute", it's summoned to face the Brute. It wins.
  • Token Good Teammate: Compared to the other "divine creatures of darkness", The Birch is by far the most benevolent, to the point of being summoned to fight other monsters like The Brute. It also needs to be deliberately summoned, unlike the others who usually show up spontaneously.


Appearances: Insatiable Hunger, Blood Hunt, No Escape, Look-See vs. Mordeo, Offering, Hunger, Desperation, Cannibal Bride, Reunion

A group of people that let their hunger consume them, and thus they were cursed to consume flesh on a daily basis. There appear to be more than one, as implied by the fact they have a "queen".
  • Hive Mind: It's implied that the Mordeo is a disembodied presence, and the horned and fanged beings we see are merely the people who have fallen under its sway.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Has a rotting deer skull for a head.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Pulls a Demonic Possession on anyone who eats flesh in its woods, and is seen gorging on its victims as well.
  • Meaningful Name: "Mordeo" is a Latin verb meaning "to bite."
  • Monster Lord: One of at least four monsters in the CryptTV universe described as "divine creatures of darkness."
  • Token Evil Teammate: The only one of the "divine creatures of darkness" to not be an Anti-Villain motivated by some form of desire to help people. While the Look-See wants people to let go of the negative emotion they can't move past, the Birch is protective of its summoner, Aponi is protective of women and Soot hunts those who escaped death. the Mordeo is simply a cannibalistic monster.
  • Was Once a Man: Its current(?) form is taken from a man who it possesses after eating the body of his friend in the woods.
  • Wendigo: In all but name.

"Just like the others. Too weak to protect the innocent."

Appearances: Stoneheart (Stoneheart, New Dawn, Requiem, Big Fish, Therapy, Twins, The Smell of Burning Ants, The Voice In Your Head, Transference), Delilah's Revenge, Cemetery

A witch that protects women from abuse by violently killing the abusers.

  • Anti-Villain: Violent as she may be, she has targets that often have gotten what was coming for them, and fiercely protects women.
  • Demonic Possession: She takes over a girl's body to continue her work. She had previously possessed a stone statue.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: A number of her victims are killed simply for engaging in typical school bully behavior. That being said, others are legitimately bad people.
  • Knight Templar: Hunts down, tortures, and kills abusive people - even teenage kids.
  • Monster Lord: One of at least many monsters in the CryptTV universe described as "divine creatures of darkness."


Appearances: Soot (Flood, Current, Canary), Encounters, Full Circle

A creature that hunts down those who escaped death.

  • Attack Reflector: As shown in the Current episode, any fatal wound inflicted on the entity is shifted to the attacker. It seems to be able to activate this ability at will.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: It doesn't care about morality, it just cares whether or not you should be dead. As such, its victims range from a Jerkass who caused a massive car crash but walked away without a scratch, to an innocent girl who narrowly avoided shocking herself on an outlet.
  • Death by Irony: It always kills its victims in a manner that resemble how they should have died. In milder examples this might mean electrocuting someone to mimic how they would have been shocked to death by an outlet. In the most gruesome, it involves mangling them so badly that it resembles the wounds they would have suffered in a car crash or cave-in.
  • Grim Reaper: Seems to have this role, killing those who should be dead.
  • Mark of the Beast: It marks its victims with an unfinished black circle. When it kills them, the circle completes itself.


Other Monsters

    The Thing 
A creature that lives in urban areas and attacks people in the dark.


Appearances: The Mimic

A species of creature that lives in the Mimic Sanctuary. It is capable of altering its voice to trick its prey.

     The Brute 

Appearances: The Door, Locking the Door, Losing a Child

A demonic entity found within a mysterious door in the woods. Nothing in the world is capable of taking it down, and it's an unstoppable cannibalistic demon, so good luck corralling it back into its hole once it's been released.

    Mira Mira 

Appearances: Mira Mira, New Blood, Eye of the Beholder

A monster that lives within mirrors and changes places with people.


    Kinder Fanger 

Appearances: Piper's Song

A creature that snatches kids away using the songs from a flute.

  • Fractured Fairytale: A very horrific take on the Pied Piper, as a kid snatcher and very creepy monster.

    The Widower 

Appearances: Target Practice

A human experiment gone horribly wrong, it is driven by pure rage and instinct, being able to infect others and make them his own after a little while.

  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After his "wife" is accidentally taken, he takes on the job of eliminating all of those who killed her, and takes one of them as his new "wife".
  • Was Once a Man: His flashback shows that he used to be a human, apparently an inmate subjected to secret and unethical experiments. His "wife" appears to be one of the researchers who made him what he is.

    Miss Annity 

Appearances: Miss Annity (Prim and Proper, Baby on Board and Kiss And Make Up)

A monstrous spider woman that haunts Bridgeport Apartments.

  • Corrupted Character Copy: She's essentially a twisted version of Mary Poppins. While both characters try to teach strangers important life lessons, Ms. Annity's lessons are very outdated, and she'll try to kill anyone who refuses to listen to her teachings.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: A lot of the lessons she kills her victims over are very out of date, such as "women should maintain an hourglass figure" and "men's place are in the workplace and not taking care of the kids."
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She only gives people a few minutes to learn her outdated values, constantly egging them with her presence before killing them and using their corpses as props. It is especially egregious with the case of her first on-screen kill Anna in "Prim And Proper", who she garrotes in-half with her own measuring tape for not having an hourglass figure.
  • Monster from Beyond the Veil: In "Kiss And Make Up", a newscaster reveals that Miss Annity was a make-up mogul from The '60s who committed suicide later in-life, her appearing as a spider monster presumably only happening afterwards.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Since she was raised in the The '50s, Ms. Annity's values are rather... antiquated, to say the least. Some of her "lessons" say that a man should put work over his family, or that an woman without an hourglass figure can't be a dancer. It doesn't help that most of the people she targets happen to belong to minority groups.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Her targets are people who "don't fit into society", repeatedly dropping hints at the lesson she wants to teach them and gives them the chance to learn that lesson. If they don't learn it in the amount of time that she gives them, she kills them and makes puppets out of their bodies for her instructional tapes. With that said, her values are dated and rather obtuse, making learning that lesson troublesome.

Sunny Family Cult

If all you know is fire, are you destined to watch the world burn?
The young daughter of the cult leaders. A girl that is unsure between try to be normal and fit in with the family that raised her.
  • Anti-Villain: Taylor is a killer like her family, but she has doubts about it and sometimes wish to be something else.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Played with. She is unsure whether she wants to be a normal teenage girl or fit in with her Serial Killer family.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Her doubts about the cult's killings aren't anything new, Elias has apparently gone through all of it during his youth.

  • Big Bad: Of the Sunny Family Cult series.
  • Cain and Abel: Elias' eviler brother, who wants to bring the CryptTV monsters into the real world.
  • Knight Templar: Wants to purge the world of sinners, regardless of how trivial their crimes are.
  • Visionary Villain: Wants Taylor to kill him so that he can ascend and become one of the Divine Creatures of Darkness, giving him the power to create a new "pure" world.


  • Abusive Parent: Despite his love for Taylor, Elias is terribly controlling and says that she doesn't really has a say on what she does with her life and it's up to him to decide what and who she will be.
  • Serial Killer: As the leader of the Sunny Family Cult, he has killed a variety of people, or assisted others to kill.

    Jack Holt 
Played by: Farheem Williams



"Are you crying? Are you crying, boy? Cry, little piggy."

Appearances: The Birch

Played by: Aaron Thomas Ward


  • Asshole Victim: Considering his horrible actions and personality, it's doubtful that anyone missed him after he was murdered by Kris.
  • Ax-Crazy: Enjoys hurting Kris, and at one point threatens him with a knife.
  • Barbaric Bully: Ruthlessly bullies Kris in a way that most would find morally questionable and relentlessly cruel.
  • Big Bad: Of "The Birch", acting as a sadistic, cruel bully towards Kris.
  • Character Death: Stabbed and slashed multiple times across his entire body by Kris.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Stabbed multiple times and slashed across the body by the same knife he had threatened Kris with. Some of his innards are even stuck on a tree branch, and his entire back seems to have been torn open.
  • Hate Sink: Showcases no form of human decency and clearly only exists to be hated by the audience.
  • Jerkass: Considering his status as a bully, this is pretty self-explanatory.
  • Karmic Death: Stabbed to death with his own knife by Kris, the very person he had threatened with said knife not longer before.
  • Knife Nut: Carries a knife on him at all times, and at one point threatens Kris with death by holding it up to his throat.
  • Sadist: Takes an uncomfortable amount of pleasure out of torturing Kris.

"For he who makest me, I shall come. He who breaks me shall come undone."

Appearances: The Birch

Played by: Charlie Venables

A bullying victim who learns to call the Birch from his grandmother.

  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: He has been treated terribly and constantly harassed by Shaun for who knows how long before the events of "The Birch". By the time of the video though, he has had enough, and ends up killing his torturer.
  • Break the Cutie: He seems like a sweet kid, but Shaun constantly harassing him inevitably led to him him snapping and murdering Shaun.
  • Butt-Monkey: Brutally beaten up by Shaun throughout "The Birch", suffers through seeing his grandma die in front of him, continues to be tortured by Shaun some more, and upon having enough, is implied to have been traumatized by murdering Shaun. Seems like nothing can go right for the kid.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After having enough of being tortured by Shaun, he attempts(and succeeds) to summon the Birch, and through it's influence, is able to get revenge by mutilating Shaun's body.
  • Driven to Villainy: The only reason he decided to summon the Birch is because Shaun just wouldn't leave him alone, and because his cruelty and been growing worse.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He truly loved his grandma.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Regardless of Shaun's cruelty towards him, he looks noticeably horrified upon realizing he killed him.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Ends up summoning the Birch and murdering his bully after having enough with being tortured by them every day.
  • Karma Houdini: As far as we know, he has completely gotten away with murdering Shaun.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: Kris seems to genuinely regret killing Shaun.
  • Villain Protagonist: The main character of "The Birch", and also the one who ultimately murders Shaun, and not the very creature it had summoned to do that.
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact that he's the person responsible for summoning the Birch in the first place is a pretty major spoiler.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He's been tortured and harassed by Shaun for a very long time, ultimately causing him to become desperate enough to summon the Birch.

    Kris' Grandma
"When I am gone...She will look after you. Protect you. Just as I have always done."

Creepypasta Comic Characters


A self-professed nerd, Eric always found it hard to make friends. When his bullies weren't making fun of his hobbies, they were deriding him for having two moms. His family moves out to the middle of nowhere in hopes of getting him away from his bullies in the city. But prejudice gets around, and Eric decides to go stargazing at a particular swamp on one fateful night.

  • Boy Meets Ghoul: He mentions that he always had trouble making friends until he ends up befriending the Woe Bone who saved him, Lexi.
  • Brainy Brunette: He has a passion for astronomy and stargazing and happens to be a brunette.
  • Bully Magnet: He says that his moms had him move out to the countryside in hopes of getting him away from his tormentors in the city. Unfortunately, his neighbors turn out to be no better.
  • Distressed Dude: He's first a target for homophobic bullies before having to be saved by one Woe Bone from the others out to devour him.
  • Geek Physique: He's not especially imposing and Ben easily shoves him into the swamp. But he still has enough body weight to drag Ben with him.
  • The Greatest Story Never Told: The Woe Bone who saves him swears him to secrecy about his encounter. It's unknown if the Creepypasta video is violating that promise.
  • Harmful to Minors: He witnesses Ben and Christie get torn to pieces by the Woe Bones and is a nearly a victim of them himself. One of the Woe Bones digs its claws so deeply into his leg that he can feel its nails scratching the bone.
  • Has Two Mommies: He has two moms who love him dearly, but he's constantly derided for not having a dad. Despite this, he loves them right back and considers them and himself perfectly normal.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: He has pale blue eyes and has no idea what he's getting into when he ventures to that swamp at night.
  • Nerd: A self-professed one, and he's depicted reading comic books on top of having a passion for astronomy and stargazing.
  • Nerd Glasses: He has big, boxy glasses that mark him as one. They manage to stay on his face against all odds, including getting painfully shoved into the swamp and dragged underwater.
  • Nice Guy: As far as the listener can tell, Eric is a sweet boy who unfortunately happens to be a Bully Magnet as a result of being a Nerd with two moms. He even tries to get the Woe Bone who saved him to come with him to see if they could help it, but the Woe Bone refuses.
  • Pinky Swear: He makes one with the Woe Bone who saved him, Lexi, to never speak of his encounter with it again. It's unknown whether he's breaking his promise by telling his story to the listener through the video.

How well does it match the trope?
