Top Ten Scariest Fictional Monsters

Your worst nightmares, things that kept you awake at night, here are the ones that freak me out (feel free to add your own oogely boogely things)
The Top Ten
1 Donnie Pfaster from The X-Files

I don't care about that damn x-file but the monster really freak me...!

I'm not a fan of the x-files but the damn monster freaks me out!

If no one knows who she is watch it but it will freak you out!

I only watched the beginning and I freaked out!

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

If you see him you will live in paranoia for weeks. He will be there every time you turn your back. He'll get closer and closer. He will follow you home. He will enter your room. You will finally make a last dash for escape but it is futile. He will get you. When he does he impales you on a tree and lets you take hours, possibly days to die.

Slender man is some pretty creepy stuff, although the videos aren't of the best quality, they are still pretty chilling. I'm just waiting for a legitimate movie about him, then I'll be happy.

Marble Hornets for the win! Most stuff like that doesn't scare me, but the Slender man did. Laugh out loud... Felt kinda lame though for being scared of something I know isn't real. :) still... Scary as all get out, and glad it isn't real!

Oh my god I watched Marble Hornets and it is SO scary, nothing should be like that.

3 Freddy Krueger Fred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

I remember going to the video store when I was little, I had not seen the movie yet, and there was a big poster of freddy kreuger, and it always scared me, then for some stupid reason ten years later I watched the movie, at night no less, that was a bad move, it scared me so bad, I had to tell my mom I watched it, but she didn't get mad she just said " that's why I told you not to watch it, I knew it was going to be to scary" I should have did what I was told, I never saw to other nightmare on elm street movies.

Damn him... Because of him, I even slept in a sleeping bag next to my dad's side of the bed. I was truly scared that he will make his hand pop out of my chest like he did in that 1st part of the series. >. >

I remember trying to sleep after watching any Nightmare on Elm Street and it was impossible.

I've watched all the nightmare on elm streets and I always wee myself.

4 Jason Voorhees Jason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs. Voorhees.

Jason is so brutal and his way of killing is gross.. Since I saw one of his film when I was a kid I don't want to watch friday the 13th alone..

He should be number one

That creepy way he just looks at his victims then slices em up without a word is eerie

5 Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary was actually just Queen Elizabeth's older sister. She was catholic and wanted a child, so she took people and she killed them as an offering. Once she died Queen Elizabeth became the next queen.

I haven't seen this movie nor am I that scared of Bloody Mary herself, but dang, I'm assuming looking at mirrors would sure be pretty darn creepy after watching this movie!

I do it at night time and it doesn't work. But my friends totally believe In her and they say if you live close to a marsh, she will haunt you down. That freaks me out a bit laugh out loud

Bloody Mary isn't even real. It's a hallucination casted by your mind since they can't spot anything and tries to fill in that blank spot.

6 Michael Myers Michael Myers is a character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween as a young boy who murders his older sister, then fifteen years later returns home to murder more teenagers. In October 2018, a sequel to the original Halloween was released, following 20 years after Michael Myers’s story.

I can't go to sleep without thinking: "What if he's here? " And at school, I swear, I hallucinated once, seeing him behind a car. I couldn't move. I almost went insane myself the first few times I watched it. I still, being the middle of spring, look outside thinking, "Is he there? " and half expecting him to be there.

What makes him scary is the fact that someone like him could actually exist. It's so chilling that he murdered his own sister when he was only about 7 years old, just because she had a boyfriend, and in later years would attempt to kill his whole family!

A few days b4 halloween, I put on a Michael Myers mask and scared my little brother and mom and made them scream for a whole minute.

I think its made worse but the fact that he never talks.

7 Cthulhu Cthulhu is a fictional cosmic entity created by writer H. P. Lovecraft and first introduced in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in the American pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. Considered a Great Old One within the pantheon of Lovecraftian cosmic entities, the creature has since been featured in numerous popular culture references.

How is jeff the killer higher? Cthulu is a godzilla sized beast with a head the shape of an octopus, wings, magic, and the fact that he feasts on nightmares is the scariest part about him.

How the hell is this not first? It's a Godzilla sized monster in the ocean that looks like a squid. How is Hannibal higher?

Just play Skyrim: Dragonborn and you'll come to fear him.

O.M. G! How is this not on the top 10?

8 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".

Call me weird, but I'm starting to think he's kind of funny looking. A bit odd, yes, but that face does NOT strike fear into me or anything like that

Holy crap... When I first saw the picture and was told the story... I couldn't sleep for months... His FACE is what's scary though...

I agree. His face is all that's scary. My friend freaks out whenever he sees his face.

The face is what's disturbing
The story is kinda but dat face!

9 Alien The Alien (also known as a Xenomorph) is a fictional extraterrestrial species that serves as the title antagonist of the Alien film series.

Lets see... creepy face-hugger which looks like an angry spider / vagina attaches itself to your face and lays an egg in your chest. This little fella then enters the world... through the hole it just burst through your chest. This then develops into the ultimate killing machine. Massive spear on its tail, razor sharp claws, razor sharp teeth PLUS a second retractable mouth inside its mouth, also with razor sharp teeth. Oh yes, concentrated acid for blood. Nough said.

Definitely should be at least in the Top 3. The Alien creature became iconic and very memorable fictional monster. Not to mention scary as hell

After seeing Prometheus, isn't it evident these things are world destroyers.

The Alien from Alien was truly terrifying.

10 Tooms From The X-Files

This guy Is the soul reason why I'm terrified of slender man. Just, the way his arms stretch and.. Gives me the heeby jeebies!

The Newcomers

? Chinga from The X-Files

The butcher stabbing himself in the eye with a knife traumatized me when I watched this episode. I still have an gigantic fear of eyeballs.

The Contenders
11 IT aka Pennywise the Dancing Clown aka Bob Gray It (sometimes capitalized as IT), more commonly known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of the novel, its 2017 film adaptation and the 1990 TV adaptation. It was portrayed to be a shapeshifting and malevolent entity millions (possibly billions) of years old, and with no exact gender or solid identity; thus why it is called "IT". more.

I don't know who is worse, pennywise or leather face, because they both make me pee a little bit so I will call it a tie.

Yo stoshie dude, when you said Eater of Worlds I immediately thought of Terraria. Thanks for reminding me of such a good video game!

It has caused so many nightmares I couldn't sleep without any nightmares for years when I was younger.

I'm not scared of the clown form, but the fact it can turn into your greatest fear is what scares me.

12 The Boogeyman - Stephen King Adaption

This guy is scary

13 Chucky from Child's Play Charles Lee Ray is a fictional character and the titular antagonist of the Child's Play horror film series.

Here's a creepy story about this horror:
I was doing my school spellings for homework one night and I stopped for a moment to ask my mom "what is the worst toy ever? " And she said "a Chucky doll" and I said "what the heck is that? " And she said "it kills people". That night I couldn't sleep and was only 10 years old then. Good thing I have gotten over it now :).

Huh, I don't think I'll want to see this...

14 Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill Movie

Obviously a cruel, vicious, terrifyingly awesome example of monster-ness. While I don't get nightmares from movies, if I did, they would probably be all about Pyramid Head. Ripping the girl's dress and skin off is just one example of what brings him well up to the top of the list of scariest monsters. Who wants to be skinned that easily?

Go look up a video of this guy somewhere, he is ridiculously creepy/scary. I think that he is brutal and should definitely be number one. He's about as scary as it gets for fictional monsters.

I have just been on the silent hill site this very instant and he was scary!

Turns all into a gibbering mess when he's done with thim, well, if they make it long enough...

15 The Dead Girl - The Grudge

The Grudge is my opinion one of the scariest movies ever. THe way the dead girl spyders down the stairs or just her revolting face is disturbing.

The grudge gives me the nightmares. That creepy face freaks me out and the way she crawls make me scream. I'm telling you if the dead girl was a real monster that existed right now I would wanna suicide.

I never saw this girl but I'm sure the movie would be... disturbing.

Her name is Kayako Saeki

16 Annabell

I didn't find this movie scary at all, it was very dull, and boring.

Annabelle reminds me of chucky a possesed doll that takes over your lives.

The girl from the movie

17 Dr. Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a character in a series of suspense novels by Thomas Harris. Lecter was introduced in the 1981 thriller novel Red Dragon as a forensic psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer.

No, I disagree. I don't even find the movie that scary... It really is just something to make you think. Even though the fact exists that I might get eaten in my sleep or that he'll tell me to rip my face off like in Hannibal... Brouhaha.
Wait, so this means I found the movie scary right? Yeah, I think so. Continuing along with my daily grind.

Silence of the Lambs is a great movie, one of the best, not very graphic just very psychologically scary how Hannibal gets into your head. Its Genius

He is so awesome. After watching this movie, I could not sleep for several days. Scary. Especialy when he takes down the two cops and rips one open.

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti

18 The Baskerville Hounds from Sherlock Holmes
19 Black Eyed Children (aka B.E.K's)
20 Two-Face Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman Forever and Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight.

Sorry but this reminds me of Voldemort and Quirrel in Harry Potter but I do think that it'll be scary.

21 The Zombies from The Night of the Living Dead
22 Leather Face - Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Should be in top 3 I mean WHATS scarier than a huge, inbred, mask made of human flesh wearing, mentally retarded, psychotic, chainsaw weilding, cannibal?! Okay maybe spiders but LEATHERFACE is the scariest thing besides spiders. Even creepier LEATHERFACE WAS REAL (look up Ed Gein). So be careful taking a wrong turn in the southern outback you might just meet this guy and his equally psychotic inbred family. Same applies to West Virginia

If I saw this guy this is what I would do:

I would look at him and laugh because he's sorta a loser.
Then, I would run.
When I got home, I would call the cops on him
If he killed me, I'd watch him from Heaven and watch people be killed. Sorry guys.

Scary inbred, cannibalistic, skin wearing psycho! The scariest person since 1974. So be careful taking a wrong turn, you might wind up meeting this guy and his equally inbred, psychotic family

23 The Pale Man from Pan's Labyrinth

I just recently watched Pan's Labyrinth for the first time, and the Pale Man is the creepiest thing I've ever seen in my life. What makes it even creepier is that it is so scary without being very gruesome in the scene it's depicted in. There is almost no blood shown, but the Pale Man himself is creepier than any movies I've ever seen with blood and gore.

He has eyeballs in his hands and he impales children with swords. Yeah, Freddy Krueger who?

His scene alone was scarier than the entire Conjuring, the Exorcist, or Paranormal Activity in my opinion

24 Zombie
25 Count Dracula
