  • The very, very not safe for life rip of Program Rhythm, then called Puzzle Room (which was taken down) ended with a Vinesauce reference - a screen with "да"note  and "нет"note , and annotations for both. Clicking the former lead to a music video for "Russkij Pusskij" by Carlito; clicking the latter lead to a shock video of a harlequin babynote  screaming; what's worse is that a weird-looking hand slowly inched towards "нет"; when it did, it displayed a still from that video with the Hypernova filter applied to it (accompanied by "Игра окончена" - "the game is over"). explanation  Virtually everyone thought it crossed the line as a result of its gory content (though for some, it came across as Nightmare Retardant because of the Hypernova filter), and SiIva broke character to apologize for it (as one person had uploaded it without permission from the rest of the group - he was removed for this, of course). Funnily enough, the original uploader, Le Ruse Bird, uploaded a song to his Soundcloud titled What Harlequin Baby?
    • Puzzle Room would eventually get re-uploaded again. The song is the same, but this time... you get BEANED!!!. The rip has been deleted however.
    • The song was, once again, reuploaded... but this time, Felix the Cat's Game Over theme is recreated using samples from Program Rhythm. Clicking да leads to a harmless Tetris rip while нет leads into later in the video, which shows a crudely drawn image of Kirby with Harlequin Ichthyosis (in reference to the Baby incident). The rip has currently resulted in numerous fans losing trust in SiIvaGunner as they believe he has gone back on his apology.
      • It should be noted that this rip was most likely meant to feel like the last Puzzle Room-related rip, because it was uploaded the day before the September 30th ending and has a much higher production value than the two previous versions.

    • And now, they seem to have used audio from the original Harlequin Baby video in a rip titled "Bathroom - P.T.". No link here, it's NSFW.
    • Continue? - Filix VS Jerry was uploaded among a rash of (mostly tame) Puzzle Room-related rips, and sounds much creepier than the baby ever could. At least until Epic Flintstones kicks in, after which it becomes a truly epic Puzzle Room remix.
  • "Title Theme (Director's Cut)" is mostly audio of the Flintstones parody from The Simpsons... except for the end, where a second scream is dubbed in right before Homer crashes, followed by Batman saying, "From this moment on... none of you are safe." The video then cuts to static.
  • The rip of E.G.G.M.A.N. (OST Version) originally had a phrase that said "two milkmen go comedy" in the description. When the letters are flipped around, the phrase reads, "Welcome to my kingdom".

  • Remember the rip that caused the reboot? Well, some new information has come out. Basically, someone was behind it and Chad Warden's #AQAP crusade is to blame.
  • "Ending" from The Terrible Whiteness of Appalachian Nights. Granted, the original game was rather terrifying anyway, and the creepiness factor decreased once you realized that The Eight Melodies was playing, but it combined with the description (a reference to the "game") is still really unsettling.
  • The rip of Mickey Mousecapade's Game Over screen, aka the theme from Suicide Mouse. Thankfully, there's some Nightmare Retardant at the very end.
  • The rip of "Destruction of the Sammer Kingdom" from Super Paper Mario. It starts out playing the Theme Tune for The Simpsons (albeit in minor key), but then it gets interrupted by the sound of The Void engulfing Sammer's Kingdom, topped with Homer's Catapult Nightmare scream from the episode "Moaning Lisa" (which is also heard in The Simpsons Arcade Game), the scream echoing into nothing but dead silence. And unlike the Mickey Mousecapade Game Over rip, there's no Nightmare Retardant in sight — just pure, uncomfortable silence. It's disturbing enough on its own, but consider the context: It's July 7th, the date that was promised to be the end of the reboot storyline. People were expecting the video in which Chad Warden finally decides whether or not to accept the lack of Snow Halation in the Merged Reality, and the end was repeatedly teased with uploads of ending themes and the like. And then, at 5:00 P.M. EST, this video shows up. Does this indicate that the merging of both universes is not happening? Was It Really Worth It?
    • Just a few hours later, a rip of "Twinkle Circuit" from Sonic Adventure went live. The rip includes the sound of a loud crash, seemingly killing off some of the Sonic characters. It seems as if something or someone is killing off the reboot memes. So now the question is: whatever happened to the deal about merging universes? Was the Voice playing us for fools? Is this his doing, and if so, was this his plan? (Although it's more likely this was a one-off joke, as the universes were merged in the end.)
  • While not a rip, at some point after the reboot, odd things began happening. While people were happy that the old and new memes now co-exist in the channel banner, a few days later, a problem emerged: Tito Dick from The Nutshack started to manifest over the memes, slowly becoming more clear. What this could mean is unknown, but it's definitely corresponding with more Nutshack rips.
  • The Ocarina of Time Fire Temple rips can be pretty creepy, due to the fade, and also due to the original already being known to be terrifying to some.
  • In a mild sense, the rip of Lavender Town from Pokémon Red and Blue during the reboot (already infamously creepy on its own). The main melody is altered into The Simpsons theme, but at certain times begins to break into The Flintstones theme before pulling back (which some interpret as Grand Dad attempting to break free). Not helping is a bit of intentional distortion near the middle of it.
  • The reupload of Title Screen (Demo) - Super Mario 3D Land. The original was deleted and this one has surfaced. Once you get to the 10 second mark, a gun click is suddenly heard, and the screen is shot multiple times before it shuts off. Then, we get this Wham Line, before the entire video goes silent for the rest of its duration:
    Mr. Rental: Ban. All. Mashups.
  • The Intro Title / Minigame Theme from Barbie Horse Adventures: Blue Ribbon Race is presented with a grainy television filter over the image of the boxart, but the music is otherwise normal, amplifying just how unintentionally creepy the song is. Then Barbie's face starts distorting, and the video and song glitch out. It then cuts to an Emergency Alert System message letting viewers know that there is a serial killer in Bedrock. The description of the serial killer's features match those of Mr. Rental.
  • Any of the rips that contain the Green de la Bean meme can be this due to the Sensory Abuse Jump Scare. It also leads to Paranoia Fuel as this is now a Running Gag and can show up anywhere.
    • The rips stopped appearing temporarily after the Bean died before he came back with no explanation before his rips died out again. However, with the Bean being reconstructed by Haltmann as a robot, he's come back again.
  • Theme Song - Caillou, a series of creepy videotape-quality clips revolving around kidnapping, abuse, and dark places. The description also contains a series of numbers that direct to an empty road in Texas near where a girl was kidnapped and murdered. This, as well as a few elements outside of YouTube, have led fans to believe that Chaze the Chat was kidnapped, and that it might be related to the current state of the channel or even the ending announcement from the previous month. Part of how frightening this rip is can be attributed to how straightforward it is with the horror elements. Unlike the rest of the entries on this page, Theme Song - Cailou has zero instances of Nightmare Retardant or humor, and is just plain scary from beginning to end, offering nothing in the way of rhyme or reason for the Surprise Creepy. But according to this video, this turns out to be Nightmare Retardant if you find the hidden Pastebin link, kicking off a false ARG that ends with you getting beaned.
    • It gets worse. The rip itself was removed... Because it recently came to light that the "Each day i grow some more" section of it, which came from Worldcorp Enterprises, might have involved real child abuse.
  • On December 14th, 2016, a certain series villain returned, taking advantage of Siiva's sleep and created a Villain World, defeating and/or capturing all the memes except for Smol Nozomi. Before the opening of the arc plays, only one line is said:
    The Voice: Hahahahaha... I'm back.
  • Lost Life - The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants starts eerie, then slowly gets worse. The video ends with a distorted image accompanied with Russian text. Doubles as a minor Tear Jerker if you know what said Russian text means and what the video itself is expressing and portraying.note 
  • Egghead rivals even Green de la Bean as one of the most terrifying characters from the rips. He's a Creepy Child wearing a life vest who typically warps into the screen with the camera zooming in on him, before almost instantly cutting to a (sort-of) screamer of a distorted and glowing-eyed celebrity before fading back to white. The Nightmare Retardant usually comes in afterwards with a humorous vine being played, but even that isn't always the case. In later rips he just pops out of nowhere and subjects the audience to earrape (possibly a distorted Flipagram roast laugh) with the caption "HOWIE DOIN?" The creepiest thing about him is that NO ONE seems to know where this meme and the picture used in it even came from. It's a good thing his rips had a relatively short run, (mostly) only throughout early-mid 2017.
  • LSD: Dream Emulator rip Lucy in the Sky with Dynamites (20. Flashback) is a very unnerving rip even by Siivagunner standards. The whole video is very creepy, first starting with a dark screen as the sounds of something starting up can be heard. The screen suddenly shifts to the POV of a camera filming a birthday cake's candles being lighted, as a creepy "Happy Birthday" song can be heard in the background. Suddenly the screen shifts to static as unsettling distorted noises can be heard in the background, and then to just silent blackness. Then Egghead suddenly JUMPS AT THE SCREEN straight out of the darkness as a terrifying noise is played. The succeeding screen, which is just a silent clip of Silento doing the Whip/Nae-Nae on a Game Boy, does nothing to balance out the creepiness from previously.
  • Shellfie (Alternate Mix) - Splatoon begins with Egghead suddenly warping on the screen, and then cuts to a rather disturbing, red-tinted picture of a possessed-looking Kevin Hart with Glenna Nalira's hair and black, empty eyes with white dots in the middle. The video then cuts to a "smol" Glenna floating in a white void as faint screaming can be heard in the background and birds and cats float in and out of the screen. As she floats closer to the screen, the scream gets louder and louder (verging on Sensory Abuse) as the screen starts to shake and become red. Luckily enough, the video then becomes much more humorous, but the beginning is terrifying.
  • Calm - Minecraft, a Garfield Minus Garfield styled video, while funny in how it's So Unfunny, It's Funny ends on a weird and kinda scary note, all things considered. In the original video, Gadget shot Mike dead with a finger gun, but without him being in the video, Mike instead just straight up twitches as if he had a stroke or seizure and dies on the spot. It's pretty unnerving, to say the least.
    • 11 - Minecraft does it again, except Mike is gone too. The Freeze-Frame Bonus of 'Massacre' at the end does not help.
    • Game Over - Pac-Man, which was released a day later and featured the Here Comes Pacman video without any sign of Pac-Man or the roommates, repeats this formula. Only the “...” from the text at the beginning still appears and the Pac-Man theme at the end that usually plays is not present. The music, composer, playlist, and platform are gone as well, though the labels for each one stay.
    • Game Over - Sneak King as well; it's just the Burger King foot lettuce video but with no narration or text. Just the picture of two lettuce bins and some rather eerie music.
    • Main Theme - Seven: The Days Long Gone does the same thing to Joel's reaction to Grand Dad.
  • Though not physically scary, the first two Haltmann's Archives episodes possess this unnerving atmosphere that makes you feel alone, and that someone could find you at any minute.
  • File 13 can make you feel like your home could end up mechanized at any second and without any remourse.
  • PlayStation Format Disk Error - Console BIOS/Startup Fanfare. Basically what happens when you take Sayo-nara, an already pretty unnerving and creepy song, and combine it with video distortion and a sound font that makes it sound like it's coming from a broken PlayStation console.
  • Beelzebub - Pony Island, Awesome Music aside, does have some rather abstract and bizarre imagery that could weird out some viewers. That seizure warning at the beginning definitely isn't lying.
  • Christmas Comeback Crisis Episode 10 has brought us what is likely to be the most uncomfortable imagery the entire channel has produced. Even more than the Harlequin Baby. The majority of the episode is based around a fight against JustinRPG, who has finally found out how to bring Reshiram to life. While he does succeed, he also gets eaten whole by the Pokemon. Eventually, he also fuses into it, becoming an unholy abomination. What makes it worse is that the heroes seem to have no chance against the monster, with Santa being eaten. He does escape the jaws of the monster, though not in one piece. They do succeed, but it surely isn't a pretty victory. The entire second half of the episode is a horrific display of Fan Disservice, Ludicrous Gibs, and Fetish Retardant.
  • On Halloween 2018, the Christmas Comeback Crisis resumed, skipping from Episode 10 to Episode 13, which is simply titled "Comeback Crisis". If you look at the video itself, it's actually an original creepypasta where the reader comes across Episode 13 of the CCC. It turns out to be Puzzle Room for FOUR HOURS, and then the да and нет screen shows up. The reader clicks нет for the funny meme only to find Felix the Cat with hyperrealistic eyes, and then everything goes downhill from there. See the video here.
