Top 10 Scariest Creepypasta Characters

There are lots of scary-looking Creepypasta characters out there.

Here are the top ten…
The Top Ten
1 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner. The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep".

Jeff is pretty scary to look at, I'll admit. He sneaks into your room at night, waits for you to wake up, and tells you to "Go to sleep" before stabbing you to death. That's pretty creepy, but he's not the scariest. I think Jeff only wins because of his fangirls. I mean, I love Jeff, but... how can a psychotic killer have fangirls?! What?! That doesn't make sense to me. Someone, please tell me how he has fangirls.

Anyway, his story isn't really that scary either, but eh. Jeff is pretty cool. As a fellow 'pasta, I will say that Jeff is scary, but not the scariest. Sorry, fangirls, but that's that. Oh yeah, and I can be scary too, Jeffrey!

Jeff the Killer is the best. I am not a fangirl, but I honestly think Jeff is the best. And he is not winning because of fangirls. He is winning because he is the best and always will be. I like the fact that Jeff says "GO TO SLEEP" before he kills. And Jeff is far the best Creepypasta I have heard of. His smile is cool. And the fact that he can't blink means he can win at a staring contest.

The one thing that bugs me is that people will ship him with other Creepypastas or with themselves. But the one thing that bugs me the most is that people will ship Jeff with Jane. If you are a true Creepypasta fan, you would understand and you wouldn't ship any of them with anyone. But anyways, Jeff the Killer will always be number one. And no one can change that. Go To Sleep!

2 Slender Man The Slender Man is a fictional supernatural character that originated as an Internet meme created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen

He is famous. He got his own movie and video game. His story is haunting, and I do love stories like his. Why? Here, let me explain.

Jeff the Killer is creepy. His appearance is, but the story? Ehhh... Not as much. I mean, yes, a serial killer gone mad is quite terrifying, and if it happened in real life, we'd be dead. But I feel like it's... I don't know... obvious, I guess? Serial killer. Brutally murders children and adults alike. We've heard that many times, even in real life.

Now, Slenderman is different. In my preference, a scary story to me is one that mixes itself with the real world. Where it's so realistic to the point where people claimed to have seen it. People wonder if it actually exists. That creeps me out. Yes, he's somewhat like Jeff. He kills. But not instantly. We know, for the most part, he likes to attract children, taunt them, hypnotize those with an innocent mind. He likes to kill them slowly after they are captured, hearing their screams. Well, Jeff's appearance is, I guess, somehow a bit more realistic. White sweater. Black jeans. Regular height. Carved smile, if you think about it. It's not that hard to carve a smile into your skin, for example, Kuchisake-Onna, the slit-mouthed woman. Slender Man is a bit unrealistic, but we have 7 billion people in this world and too many unknown places. We don't know the Earth that well yet... Who knows... With all these sightings, he could actually exist.

3 Eyeless Jack

Eyeless Jack is my top favorite! I have to admit, though, none of these Creepypastas are remotely scary enough to freak me out in real life, but the stories are great. I've never actually seen Eyeless Jack's 'real' story, the original, but I get the gist of it: betrayal. I guess I'm one of those fangirls? Rather than being scared of these supernatural things, I'm more sad about them. Abused, betrayed, forgotten, bullied - all of these happen in real life, except that the Creepypasta stories twist them into a happy ending.

The End.

Eyeless Jack truly is my favorite, even though I do like Jeff. I had to vote for Jack because, you guys have to admit, Jack is better than Jeffrey ever will be. Maybe I voted because I enjoy the mystery of not knowing what Eyeless Jack really looks like. You never see more than his blue mask with the black sockets. Plus, he is technically a cannibal. He eats people's kidneys. To be honest, I would probably give him my kidney for free. Also, he is probably much smarter than all the other Creepypastas. So, he really does deserve to be in first place.

4 The Rake

I haven't seen any creepy pastas but this one. I saw The Rake at 3:48 AM last year. It was in my bathroom. I was so scared I covered my head with the blanket and shut my eyes tight. A few minutes later, I opened my eyes to see if it was still there. It wasn't in the bathroom, at least. Also, no lights were on, and the street light isn't visible and gives no light where the bathroom is. It's super scary for adults, and I was just 11 when I saw it.

He is a very scary creature. He is just named The Rake, but he is actually a skinwalker. But still, he is the most terrifying creepypasta. By the way, I'm going to be a new... maybe... creepypasta. My name is Midnight Moon. What I like to say is, "Look at the moon." Then I chop off my victims' heads with a Samurai Sword known as The Nightmare Knife. I'll be writing my story as soon as I can. And remember to look at the moon.

This is no doubt THE scariest pasta there is. I am an avid horror reader and fan. This is one of the few stories that made me want to sleep with another person in my room, check all the corners in my room every 30 seconds, AND stay up until 3 AM being paranoid about it having been or being in my room, watching me while I slept.

5 Laughing Jack Laughing Jack is the titular main antagonist of the Creepypasta story of the same name. He is a sadistic killer clown who was originally an imaginary friend to a little boy. That is until the boy forgot about him. Follow his story through being made, forgotten, and becoming a sadistic killer clown, who now seeks to murder young children.

He's sadistic, cruel, and just flat out brutal. Truly terrifying that he was easily able to manipulate the mother into killing her own son. Then later goes on to mock her months later. He's sick and twisted with a certain darkness that is unique and different. Did I mention he's a clown? Clowns are the most terrifying thing ever!

He's able to manipulate the mother's dream and show her what I would assume is where he lives in another dimension that is connected to our own. That's much more frightening than even Freddy. Freddy can't come to our world unless dragged there. Laughing Jack can and has displayed supernatural abilities within our world.

He reminds me of the Mexican bogeyman legend, which I suggest everyone looks into. This is by far one of the best creepypasta characters ever! I would like to see more of him.

Laughing Jack is truly terrifying. He's an insane clown who kills people, mainly children, and stuffs their bodies with candy. His origin story is actually kind of sad, though... until it gets to the part where he kills Isaac. That part almost made me barf. His design is scary. He is scary. Plus, many people already have a fear of clowns, so that adds to LJ's creepiness.

Honestly, if I were to be killed by one of the creepypastas, I would rather be stabbed to death by Jeff, have my kidneys taken by EJ, be impaled by Slender, or strangled by Sally. Why? Because Laughing Jack loves to torture and doesn't let you die until he's had his "fun," and that's just TERRIFYING.

6 Smile Dog "Smile Dog" is a story about a cursed image file. The image shows a large German Shepard or Husky dog that is smiling.

Teens and younger individuals looking at the picture of the smiling husky will have nightmares. I don't advise looking at it unless you are 100 percent sure that you love horror pictures and movies and can handle this. The minute I saw that picture, I turned away. That picture is scary. (Yes, I am not that into creepy pictures.) This is a picture you will not forget for a very long time.

Wait, wait, wait. Okay, I got into Creepypasta when I was 10, and I found Smile Dog after a few weeks. There's a comment: 'Teens and younger looking at the picture of the smiling husky will have nightmares. I don't advise looking at it unless you are 100% sure that you love horror pictures and movies and can handle this...' Okay, I see a lot of things messed up here.

First, I was 10 years old when I got into Creepypasta. I had never seen a horror picture or a movie in my whole entire life. I freaking got scared watching 'A Quiet Place' TRAILER. I repeat, TRAILER. Yes, I'm bad at horror. And here I am, watching and reading Creepypasta. I have seen Jeff The Killer's photo, and I am STILL alive. Smile.jpg, ha, no. He's cute. So freaking cute! Sure, he's covered in blood, but he's still adorable!

7 Ticci Toby

Ticci Toby is, by far, the best Creepypasta character there is. From wearing a mouth guard, to biting his hands until they bled, not feeling pain, to loving waffles - which I'm sure most people do - to killing his dad and then setting the whole town on fire, then being saved by Slenderman, Toby is a lovable character that many can relate to. His personality can make him both cute and scary. He deserves at least the top 3, if not first place. That's why so many people love him. I really wish I could meet him. I'm your #1 fan, Toby!

I actually really like him because 1. My name is Toby, and 2. His story is just really interesting. It's sad that he isn't a creepypasta anymore.

To be honest, Ticci Toby is the fan favorite. The reason Jeff and Slender are the top 1 and 2 is that people usually stumble upon Creepypasta because of the two. Ticci Toby hides deeper inside the fandom, but if you know his story, you'll instantly fall in love with him.

One can simply relate to his story, and he's so lovable. There's no way you can hate him!

Plus, stop with all the waffle thing, please. Having Bipolar Disorder means that your appetite will change frequently, so that means there's no way he can eat waffles non-stop. But... I guess it's to add cuteness to his already loaded stack.

8 BEN Drowned BEN Drowned is a creepypasta character created by Jadusable. BEN is said to have died by drowing and haunts a Majora's Mask cartridge.

BEN's story is pretty scary to read, especially if you're in love with Majora's Mask, which is already kind of creepy all on its own, like me. BEN's story adds to the eeriness of Majora's Mask, and he is pretty awesome. I love the way he travels through electronics and causes people to go insane and kill themselves. I like his design as well. Bleeding eyes and red pupils are pretty cool.

I just kind of wish I'd never shown my cousin this Creepypasta. Now, she's an obsessed BEN fangirl. I really just appreciate how Creepypastas are scary and kill people and all. I don't know how a killer can have fangirls, though. Someone please tell me. BEN would probably be a good friend of mine if he were real. Who's to say he's not?

BEN, for me, is the scariest. He haunts one of my favorite games, but that is not the reason. He fills the games with bugs and glitches, then sets Link on fire. How is that not creepy? Then, after Link dies so many times, the screen just shows Link's dead body. Then he drives you to suicide. So, for me, it is BEN.

9 Abandoned by Disney Mickey Mouse Costume

To me, he is the scariest because I grew up loving Mickey Mouse. When I heard of ABD, I was tempted to read his story. That made me super scared of him, so he's by far the scariest.

I really got the chills while reading this. I made some of my friends read it too, and they also got the chills!

That thing is really creepy. What could be under the costume? What we only know is that it was abandoned by Disney... and by God.

10 Happy Appy

Not only are his motives to be nice to children in order to gain their trust so that he can kill them easily creepy, but he can also survive car crashes, has a skeleton even though he's an "apple", haunts the writer of it in person to destroy all evidence of his crimes/existence, and he's also a shapeshifter that pretended to be that girl's dad and proceeded to kill her entire family after revealing himself. He is nightmare-worthy, and far worse than any of the other pastas by far.

Happy Appy is terrifying! Just to look at! Yes, Jeff is creepy-looking (hence the name "Creepypasta"), but this... this THING is absolutely (what word shall I use?) CREEPY. It takes a lot to scare me. I mean, I read Creepypastas at night during a storm and can still sleep peacefully, but this dude is just... I don't know what to say. I'm sorry, but Happy Appy, you take the poisoned cake, my friend.

Seriously, guys. When I looked up his picture, I tried really hard not to laugh. It's just an apple. What's so horrifying about him? Personally, he reminds me of Annoying Orange.

The Contenders
11 Bloody Painter

He's overall my favorite because I'm an artist myself. I also love the character because his past is somewhat the same as mine (with school life and bullying). His personality is also the same as mine, and he prefers to be alone and isolated rather than being with people, which is how I keep my life. These are only a few reasons Helen is my number one favorite.

I can relate to him as I was once bullied until I did something, and it stopped, and I also love to draw. I regretted it, though, as soon as I reached year 8 in senior school, it started up again, so I'm like him in a way. But his story did make me feel for him.

I was bullied too for my 'mentally-weird' way of thinking and have loved to draw and read since I was very little. I also have social anxiety, causing everyone to see me as a weirdo because I never make friends, so people mostly hate and bully me. I never really cared. Instead, I took pleasure from it and learned to be an SM. When I read about BP and Ticci Toby, I can't help but cry because they both resemble me almost 98%. I keep reading about them over and over again until I realize,

THAT I'M IN LOVE WITH THEM! I'm not the right person, but I wish that they will find someone to help them. (Oh, but Slender Man already took them, right?)

12 Rap Rat

They are cool, mate.

13 Mr. Bear (1999)

Mr. Bear is scary because he's not a supernatural monster. He's just a crazy man who wears his old bear mask at times and hides somewhere in the forest. 1999 is the best creepypasta I've ever read.

Wow, how could this come out of the mind of a sane person? I just loved it. MUCH better than Jeff the Killer and Bloody Painter, for sure!

This is the most realistic creepypasta I have ever read. That makes the story more and more scary!

14 The Girl in the Photograph

She may not look scary, but when she's tapping on your window at night, giggling, you can't decide whether to scream or pass out.

I was looking up kids afraid of the dark, and I saw why we are afraid of the dark. Then I saw the girl and I jumped and closed it out. Also, it's not a girl. It's JEFF THE KILLER!

Who is she? She makes me wonder if she is not related to the creepypasta, Sally Williams.

15 Zalgo Zalgo is an Internet legend about an ominous entity believed to cause insanity, death and destruction of the world, similar to the creature Cthulhu created by H.P. Lovecraft in the 1920s. Zalgo is often associated with scrambled text on webpages and photos of people whose eyes and mouth have been covered in black.

Zalgo is the primordial embodiment of all Evil. He may be in a computer, but imagine if he escaped. He could destroy everything in the multiverse! That's scary!

Zalgo seems pretty scary. I mean, just look at him.

HE HAS NO NECK and honestly looks like a red jack-o'-lantern... BUT in all seriousness, he doesn't scare me that much, but he seems pretty cool.

Doesn't he have a daughter named Lazari? Where is she? I thought she was a creepypasta too.

16 Haunted Akinator
17 Lavender Town Pokémon

She is awesome.

18 Mr. Widemouth

Generally, I like Mr. Widemouth's story more than any of the character-based creepypastas. It may be because it was one of the first stories I listened to, but damn, it still gets me thinking about the ending, all these years later. If I had met him, I would've died by just tripping on him, before he even managed to say a word, knowing myself. I wonder if he would've been impressed with himself or unamused by me...

Just looking at his picture makes me shiver and strikes fear into my heart. I wouldn't want to be abducted by him.

First creepypasta that I've really read. Definitely a good starter one and a pretty good story.

19 Momo

Momo is a menace! Momo is associated with a dangerous game that tries to get young children to take their lives by, for example, jumping from a roof, poisoning themselves, cutting themselves, stabbing themselves, and hanging themselves. If you have a child who likes to play with electronics, talk to them about it and watch what they play and watch. It's on YouTube, mini-games, Facebook, Snapchat. It even influences teens to kill themselves. Don't EVER let your children play the Momo game. It is NOT a good game. Stay safe, everyone!

Just looking at her, or him, or whatever the gender, can give someone a heart attack and kill them.

The most terrifying thing, and we all know why.

20 Jeremy (Strangest Security Tape I've Ever Seen)

I was so curious about what "Jeremy" looked like that I searched for his picture on MSN, and it's freaky! This is the kind of image that can make you wet your pants!

I don't know what it is about the creepypasta, but I just don't get a good vibe about it.

21 Sonic.EXE Sonic EXE., also known as Sonic exe, is an alleged cursed version and format of the classic game Sonic The Hedgehog. The original story is about a teenage boy named Tommy or simply Tom who suffers supernatural delusions and hallucinations.

Oh, how dare you all. I am Sonic.exe, demon of Sonic. Some even call me... God. Jeff isn't scary. His face is just stupid. He's just a perverted clown. So, so 'scary'. And Zalgo? Seriously? He can only affect the digi-verse. Please, if you can't harm mortals, living ones, you're not scary. Hahaha.

Don't forget that it was I who possessed Sonic. It was I who destroyed his world. It was I who killed all of Sonic's friends. Oh, how I relished it when they realized that their beloved Sonic had turned. He would kill them all. Hahahaha. Oh, the torture, the pain they felt inside. It was like a banquet for a king.

In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I brought them back for round two, just so I could feel their hopelessness, their anguish, their sorrow. It was grand. Perfect. The things I could do a third time. New kill tactics. Their friend comes to kill again. The cycle of torment just won't stop. Reliving the same event over and over again. It must be perfect for them. Well, I'm off. Have. A. Nice. Day.

22 Tails Doll

Tails Doll is my favorite, but a little scary...

Cute and scary. Not the best but cool.

What a creepy character. He is scary. Imagine if he was in your home, ready to kill you.

23 Mother's Call

Some of the scariest creepypastas let your mind do the work. A wonderful example of this is Mother's Call. I have only read it once, but I get chills just thinking about it. What was in the kitchen? Was it a kidnapper? Was it a monster? Was it a spirit? We don't know, and that's why it's so scary.

Definitely top 10 worthy. I mean, a little girl hears her mother call her name. As she walks down the steps, a hand reaches out of a closet and grabs her. It's her mom, and she says, "Don't go. I heard it too." I mean, that's definitely scary.

I'm not sure what this means, but...this is creepy. This is what my friend said:
So if you're lost and you try to call your mother, but then she died? That creeped me out...

24 Sally Williams

Does no one know about Sally?! That makes me feel bad. Her story was pretty sad, knowing she was just 8 years old. I felt bad for what happened to her. I told my friend about her, and she loves Sally now. If you know Slender, I'm surprised you don't know Sally. She is like his daughter... kind of... in a way. I hope you read Sally's story. Please say what you think about her because I really like her.

Sally's story made me break down in tears, especially knowing that stuff like that actually happens! I love her like a sister and I hate Johnny so much. I want him to stand on a LEGO brick or stub his toe or walk into a doorframe, etc. Moral of the story: never dismiss what your child says as just a nightmare. I'm so sorry that something happened to someone so innocent, even if she is fiction.

Just like all the Creepypasta stories, Sally's story is more sad than creepy. Like what I said for Eyeless Jack's thing, these supernatural stories are more sad than creepy, but the author twists the ending to a slightly more bloody way.

25 Seed Eater

Oh, Eyeless Jack eats your kidneys? How about the Seed Eater eats your children.

A bird-human hybrid that feeds on children. Definitely deserves to be in the top ten.

This is by far my favorite! Reminds me of a Wendigo!
