Top 10 Worst Creepypastas

These short horror stories are TERRIBLE in my opinion.

The Top Ten

1 Jeff the Killer 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".

The fact that so many people are calling this "well-written" is honestly insulting to legitimate writers. The plot is incredibly contrived and unrealistic, every character is flat with no personality (especially Jeff, who flips from perfectly normal with occasional "strange feelings" to a homicidal sociopath in a second), and 99% of Jeff's injuries are ridiculous (after being lit on fire, his skin turned white, lips red, and hair black? How scientific! Not to mention how Jeff hasn't gone blind from dust and bacteria after burning his eyelids off, and how his cliche knife-carved "smile" hasn't gotten infected without medical treatment). The scariest thing about this story is its picture, which, after a couple years, has become very dated and obviously photoshopped (also, isn't Jeff supposed to be in, like, high school? The picture is clearly a grown man).

The only reason it's popular is because of the picture - Peppapigsucks

The popularity of garbage stories like this makes it impossible to have any faith in humanity. It's physically painful to see people praising such a poorly written, nonsensical piece of trash when there are so many other good stories/authors out there that get little to no attention at all. Cattle mentality at its finest.

Nothing makes sence in Jeff The Killer. Jeff is over powered. There's no logic. Every character (including Jeff) is terrible and awful for no reason. Its badly written and don't deserve the popularity it gets. 0/10 - flowergriffon

"The animal was bleeding... WITH HYPER REALISTIC BLOOD" actual line in the story, not kidding, read it

I hyper realistically saw the hyper realistic story, with my hyper realistic eyes. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The creepypasta that started all the unoriginal EXE creepypastas.

It was scary but the Sunky game made it ten times funnier seeing that the characters are partying

Only thing scary about it to me is the "I AM GOD" picture. I don't like seeing enormous amounts of blood. Another thing spooky about it is how terrible it is.

3 Clockwork: Your Time is Up

The story crap but Clockwork is good character - oofoff

This story is stupidity incarnate. At first I couldn't stop laughing. Then I found the original on Wattpad. It make me sick to my stomach. It made me so mad that I looked up the author of said story. When I wrote then, they told me that all of what happened to Natalie, happened to them. Now, don't get me wrong. It's very possible that something like this Could happen. But then they went on to say that they wanted to educate people of the problem... Then I got upset. You don't educate people of Serious issues, through a Creepypasta story. A story primarily made for popularity.

The giraffe had more personality then anyone else in the story

The plot twist was horrible in my opinion. Removing your own eye, which she probably didn't have any problems sight wise, and replacing it with a clock? This seems more like torture porn than anything else.

4 Nina the Killer

After finding about Nina, I actually started to feel sorry for Jeff...

I was once incapable of feeling pity for other human beings, but Nina has showed me that I should really feel sorry for poor Jeff.


This story is just awful plain and simple. For a troll pasta it would be AMAZING, but its that key word 'creepy' that ruins it. Before I read it I knew it was going to be terrible, but it was even worse than I thought. It is a rip off of Jeff the killer which isn't even a good story to begin with, she is too sexualized, the most cliche character ever, and to top it off: she is a jeff FAN GIRL. -_- I don't even like Jeff but this is really stupid.

How the hell is this not first? Jeff's story is overrated, but at least it was unique and well written. This story is clearly a huge ripoff of Jeff the killer. Even her catchphrase is Go To Sleep, ending with My Prince. Weren't creepy pastas meant to be scary? This is a ripoff, and her design makes her a Mary Sue. I mean, how does her hair suddenly get a purple streak in it? And why is her skirt so short? I hate this story.

5 Tails Doll

This creepypasta is horrible. Its badly written, and just not scary at all. the concept is really bad too. I have no idea why this one is so popular.

Listen to Wild Honey Pie by The Beatles. I triple dare you >:))))

Would be scary if they didn't just pick a random character and turn them evil.

This Creepypasta is the product of poor writing, and pure stupidity - AlienKing

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

Slender man is not a dumb creepypasta. He is probably one of the most best creepypastas. He's mysterious and there is a lot of mystery about him. Unlike most creepypastas that focus on humans all of a sudden turning into psychopaths. Slender is different as he was never human and he is his own kind. I completely disagree that slender man is a dumb creepypasta.

The movie ruined Slenderman.

Slenderman actually is a Creepypasta, and personally I like him. He's mysterious and supernatural, which is half the reason he's so interesting. Plus, anyone who sees him comes up missing without a trace and are never seen or heard from again, which is probably the scariest part. I love Slenderman!

This is in fact one of the better creepypastas, and an original story that makes you scared to go near any forest or woods in general. Personally, I think is a very good story in general.

7 Squidward's Suicide

Yeah you totally right

Like the Abandoned Disney Theme Park piece, this starts out beautifully, very suspenseful and atmospheric. Then it remembers "oh yeah, I'm a horror story," and the shock effects start piling up until everything that was good about it disappears.

This story is a swirling storm of angry flaming cliches, and it includes gore and dead children only for shock factor. They are not a major part of the story, however they are the main attraction. Because pointless violence totally makes everything scary, right guys? - GREATEST

This creepypasta is overrated despite it's well-written. I'm going ahead and watch Spongebob.

9 Luna Platformer

Is this like Luna Game? If so, jump scares and that's it.

You play the game. You see a jump scare. THE END!

Not really that scary

I didn't really like was just plain stupid to me.

10 Eyeless Jack Eyeless Jack

The story made no sense whatsoever even the author admitted it was bad. It can be described in a sentence: A cult which appeared out of no where made a boy go blind p.s don't forget the cannibalism. There now since you know it don't read the story. - XxembermasterxX

Let's check out the flaws of this story, shall we?

-The main character, Mitch, is not only blander than sandpaper and not interesting or likable in the slightest, but also somehow manages to function and walk perfectly WITHOUT A KIDNEY. Heck, he barely even notices it until the doctor tells him about it!

-When spotting Jack on the second night, Mitch takes a photo of him, instead of, I don't know, hitting him with something heavy, fighting back, calling the cops. And hell, why did he sleep at his brother's house the SECOND time around AFTER he had something REMOVE HIS KIDNEY at night? How about staying in the hospital? Or getting some police escort?

-Jack isn't scary. He really isn't. His appearance isn't particularly unsettling, his Modus Operandi is ludicrous and unrealistic, and we are just not given enough to actually become afraid of this character!

In conclusion, the ridiculous amount of cliches, hilariously dumb character decisions, and the plain ...more

Warning: this story includes a Mary-sue. Mitch, is so stupid! First of all, how does he not realize there's a cut on his face? Second of all, how do not wake up while someone is taking your kidney out? Third, why did Mitch think the most logical thing to do was take a picture of the thing instead of maybe, I don't know, screaming? And lastly, how come the guys body was still there even though the police knew about his death? Honestly, the worst story I've ever read.

Eh, one of the few Creepypastas that are actually scary. Not the scariest, but better than many Creepypastas - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

The Contenders

11 Laughing Jack Laughing Jack

Which story are you talk about cause there's two: Laughing Jack (regular) and the Origin Story either way their both bad, but the origin story tends to be worse. - XxembermasterxX

If the author is gonna add serious subjects such as harassment and child abuse at least handle it properly. - XxembermasterxX

The sins of this one include:

-It's laughably (no pun intended) overrated.

-Instead of showing us some actual chemistry between James and Jack, maybe letting the mother see them interact more, we are introduced to, wait for it, GORE! Because that's what makes a good story. Gore. Unnecessary, overly detailed gore and torture, ESPECIALLY relating to a dog and a FIVE YEAR-OLD.

-When finally meeting Jack face-to-face, the mother suddenly turns into a damn ninja.

-Yet another 'AND DEN I DYED/WANT INSANE' ending. That, and the painful overabundance of unneeded cliches such as creepy children, a nightmare sequence that has no purpose but to showcase some more gore, and the dog in the story has no purpose but to get killed. NONE.

-People actually defend this one like their only child. Really? Fangirls are that stupid?

No character development to the Jack himself or even his victims, poor writing, a lot of cliche's, unnecessary over detailed gore and tortures and why he had bunch of fangirls? He is just a clown from the box!

Never heard of it but it sounds like it sucks.

Yes it's a YouTube CreepyPasta that sucks

Actually this pasta was debunked by a Youtuber.

Is this even a story?

13 Sweet Apple Massacre

NO. This story has clichés and over-used gore everywhere!

Oh Jesus. Why. Ugh. Ok, so the main plot line is torture, rape, eating puke and body parts, and...wait for it... GORE AND DEATH! so scary. Also why did the guy kill the three kids?

You see, we get tired of ponies brutally murdering other ponies, just for the sake of murdering ponies! I like to call these Creepypastas, "pony-pastas" because that's basically what they are. And this Creepypasta doesn't really help that title. It basically revolves around some sort of MLP character murdering little girls for no reason. The story just basically goes into detail on how he tortured and raped them to death. There is nothing scary about this what so ever, and stuff like "Cupcakes" and "Rainbow Factory" are no better. I hate MLP anyway so, I couldn't care less about ponies being murderd. - AlienKing

14 Jane The Killer: The Real Story

Horrible. Same as Nina, she is a ripoff and a bland character with no personality at all. The thing that pisses me off the most that stories like her have no originality whatsoever, and her whole story depends on other character (Jeff).

I really found her super bland and a Mary-sue. Jeff was bad but was interesting, but this was just Boring and she even looks like a Jeff ripoff.

I love Jane, but the story could've been written better. At least her appearance was closer to realistic than Jeff's after a fire. People think her skin is white and her hair black, but that's the mask and wig. She is really bald. At least, in the version I heard.

Crappy Jeff ripoff, all you need to know - TwilightKitsune

15 Nightmare Ned
16 Cupcakes

Pinkie Pie is a light-hearted cheerful character, why would she kill anypony? This creepypasta is just a gore fest filled with torture and blood and organs, with a poor excuse for a killer. Seriously, this crap is just as bad as Rainbow Factory.

This was just a gore fest and nothing but a gore fest. I could barely get through a quarter of it, because all the gore in it just got really boring and some of it unintentionally funny. Also it was painfully slow, Pinkie doesn't even have a reason to kill Rainbow Dash or any other ponies for that matter. And I don't even like MLP but this story was still awful.

Absolutely no point. It's a torture porn and nothing else. It has nothing to do with the show and the writer should be ashamed of this because this is an absolute terrible concept.

I'm not a brony myself, but pinkie killing other ponies goes WAY out of her character. its like if bowser suddenly was a computer nerd and joined the mario bros. doesn't fit, does it? - UnlawfulMatron

17 Voicebox

I'm not kidding, this is probably the worst Creepypasta (or fanfiction in general) I have ever had the displeasure of reading. It is cliché beyond belief, doesn't make any sense, almost every character is either to corny to comprehend or is just 1 dimensional. The plot is the typical cliché romance drama, only its trying to add as much blood, raping, and killing as possible. Did I even mention its about a emo character meeting Creepypasta characters and befriending them, and marrying the Creepypasta character Ticci Toby? - AlienKing

18 Sonic.exe Round 2

Okay story, but darkest struggles for the win - BorisRule

19 Come Play With ME (Sally)

Eh it wasn't really on the scary side - diehardfan

Her creator ruined her

Horribly handled rape.

20 Homicidal Liu Homicidal Liu

Another unoriginal OC that uses another creepypasta to become popular, and as always: Probably just fangirl bait. - XxembermasterxX

That’s how even how the REAL liu looks like...

I like him, but maybe something could change, but I don't know what.

Most cliche Creepypasta I have EVER read. - AlienKing

21 Ed, Edd, and Eddy Lost Episode

These lost episodes creepypastas (and there are over 366+ of them ) have a lot of clichés - ElSherlock

Ugh. Lost episodes. - AdamDestructorJr.

22 Lavender Town Syndrome

Just not scary. How am I supposed to be scared of a SONG! Ben drowned wasn't really scary, but at least it was entertaining to read ( and watch. ) Lavender town has a creepy song, but writing a full creepy pasta on a SONG? Just doesn't cut it for me.

It's so boring I mean my cousin who is 4 wasn't even scared

How do you get a song that kills people on a gameboy cart you can't even fit graphics more advanced than blobs of pixels on those

I feel like the worst that can happen is a migraine

24 South Park: The REAL Pilot

If you watch South Park and you read Creepypasta, then you should know that it is IMPOSSIBLE to make a Creepypasta on South Park. Especially if it's a lost episode Creepypasta! Go read Suicidemouse.avi guys, because this is just terrible!

Really. You guys? This lost episode is obviously a fake vhs bootleg. Even if it did exist, it doesn't have the same characterror animation. Good day.


... I uhmmm.. well, it kind of looks like something that could happen in the actual cartoon, I mean, cartman killing all south park, it actually can be an eric's fantasy jajajajaaj... this ones crappy.

¡¡¡¡HAHAAHAHAAHAHA! oh... it's so cute to see how they are trying to make the most satiricly funny show on comedy central an actual creepypasta.

25 Blood Whistle

The pasta was so bad, someone copied the entire thing but replaced "blood" with "poop", and "red" with "brown". that should convince you how bad this is. - UnlawfulMatron

This story is the product of stupidity, hyper realism, and poor writing. They include a topic that most likely wouldn't happen to a person. The main character does the most stupid, thing you could possibly do kill yourself over a video game. Put it down and move on with your life! Seriously!

Oh noo, there's blood so it's obviously scary! Seriously, this story is terrible. Too many cliches, bad story, and the character seriously kills himself over a ROM hack... No, I'm 100% serious there.

This deserves to be a lot higher. The main character is just so STUPID!

26 BEN Drowned

Why is this so low? This is awesome! - Carlitooooo

It's not scary, but pretty original for a creepypasta. - XxembermasterxX

This story was actually decent. Which is a surprise since the "Gaming" and "Lost Episode" genera have had such a bad reputation. The writing in this one was AMAZING to the point were I felt like I was reading a Stephen King book rather than a Creepypasta. However, it doesn't do well when it comes to the scare factor. It pretty much does this pattern of stuff like "game glitches" and Ben Drowned communicating to Jusible through the game. Overall its entertaining, but not scary. - AlienKing

Unlike other stories on this list, this one is really well written, except if just isn't scary

27 The Russian Sleep Experiment

This isn't even bad at all! - Carlitooooo

This is actually scary in my opinion

This one is overrated. Dislike me all you want, dear hypocrites, but this one isn't very different from Jeff The Killer.

The writer was too lazy to even Google stuff. Yeah, people excuse it with "oh well he's not a professional what do you expect", I expect author treating his story seriously, because if he doesn't care, why should I? And he clearly doesn't care.

"The commanding officer, an ex-KGB" - KGB didn't even exist in the 40s, you dumbass.

"The abdominal organs below the ribcage of all four test subjects had been removed." - then how the heck their digesting tract was still working? That's not possible.

Not to mention that at one point author has the two remaining subjects, and then they suddenly turn into three (and that's not a part of the story, that's just his lack of attention to his own pasta).

The last quote is taken from Twilight Zone.

The ending is just stupid.

Not the best, but better than the crappy overused "haunted video games" pastas and some teen who kills people.

31 Who Was Phone

This one is actually INTENDED to suck, but if it was serious is COULD be scary.

I once found a story about a guy who was trying to find something out, and when he did, I think he was in another world or something, but trying to tell who phone was

The writer needed to spend more time and do what most authors do... you know... ACTUALLY TRY.

I swear if I EVER hear these words together again I will BOW UP on the idiot who says it!

Hey guys, I know I may be burning a golden calf here, but this story sucks. The premise is a cliche in and of itself to start. Also, nothing about it is even remotely scary. It's just disgusting. - GREATEST

Robin dies from teen titans go that's not creepy that's awesome

Robin from TTG dead! YAY!


37 Such Words

Why is this so darn low?

The grammar is TERRIBLE; it's like it was written by a 6 year old! The plot is all over the place and it makes absolutely no sense. Just listen to the following phrase from the fanfic itself: "The knife sounded like it had no reason." what? If anyone READS this creepypasta, make sure you bring bleach with you. Okay? Okay?

38 Aladdin is Dead

This story has no sense of direction.It reads like the author made it up while writing. The plot is nonsensical. Why did the protagonist want to exploit glitches in Alladin in the first place? How can a regular, non-supernatural copy of Alladin summon the devil as long as you activate a glitch?

Also, this line: "now I'm a ginger but without the red hair"

39 Happy Appy

(Here's a quote from the story) Kid: "Happy Appy, why are people running and falling from the towers? "

Me: Because the towers are on fire right in front of your face, you dingus.

If you think Squidward's Suicide is horrible, take a look at this one. The beginning is not so bad, but the further the story goes, the more ridiculous and crappy it becomes. It's quite sad someone actually wasted so much of their time to write such garbage.

It was never an ACTUAL television show... The closest thing it ever got to being featured on television was a dumb YouTube series programmed by teens who read the creepypasta... The picture itself is enough for me to applaud it!

I heard about Happy Appy as a kids show and started laughing so hard when the popular results on Google were creepy pastas instead of the actual thing. - IAmNotARobot
