Unless you have been living under a rock, all of you have heard of Creepypastas. So therefore, all of you guys here have heard of Creepypastas and had your fair share of being terrified out of your mind just like me. So Creepypasta has a LOT of great horror stories. Whether they are really long but worth the read, really short and manage to still frighten you or are just a plain fact page that leaves you questioning if this villain is real or not, they always have a villain in them because without the villain causing terror and horror towards the protagonist in the story, it is not a Creepypasta.
Also, don’t you guys and girls worry because I will definitely not include Jeff the Emo Joker/Michael Myers wannabe, Eyeless Jack, Laughing Jack, Happy Appy, Sonic.EXE or even the ridiculously overpowered Zalgo. I will include villains that are very well praised by fans over the years of Creepypasta and were well written, while also managing to scare at least the majority of innocent readers, including myself. Anyway, I rambled on with this for long enough. Time start the countdown!
The Top 20 Scariest Creepypasta Villains in My Opinion:
Why I love to fear him/it: This is a rather unique choice for this list as it's not just one page, but multiple pages of multiple creatures. However, there are still some of the most famous examples of SCPs which are enough to terrify readers such as SCP-173 - which is a statue that snaps your neck once you break eye contact with it, SCP-096 - which is a creepy humanoid entity that kills you once you look at its face, SCP-1128 - which is an aquatic monster large enough to swallow a whale whole that can pull its victims from any body of water to kill once they know of the monster's full description, and so much more. Each SCP is described in a document-styled format that shows how the Foundation would contain these horrifying monsters, with very few being declared as uncontainable or still on the loose.
Why I love to fear him/it: There’s always got to be at least one horror villain that eats children. This monster takes that role perfectly. Being a monstrous sized bird-liked beast, along with very high intelligence, the Seed Eater remains as one of the creepiest villains I have encountered in the terrifying pages of Creepypasta. It even has a dark ending which leaves you hanging.
Why I love to fear him/it: You either hate this pasta or like it. I seemed to like it. Basically he is a demonic animatronic rat that haunts a board game. We never really got a horror movie version of Jumanji or Zathura so this story is a big treat of terror. Rap Rat basically does a lot of mischief and terrifying things in this story which I won’t spoil. Rap Rat creeps me out a lot, especially after my first read of the pasta. I couldn’t sleep for two nights after reading about Rap Rat.
Why I love to fear him/it: Possibly the most popular lost episode creepypasta ever written. Basically this is about an employee who sees a viewing of a so-called lost episode of the show Spongebob Squarepants. The episode follows Squidward doing his usual by practicing the clarinet for a show that night, and Spongebob and Patrick are annoying him as usual. They get shooed off by Squidward and then comes a knock on the door. The mailman comes and then warns Squidward that the Red Mist is coming. That night, after Squidward's performance, everyone suddenly has hyper-realistic blood-red eyes and then begin booing Squidward offstage, including Spongebob! What follows afterwards is where the real horror begins as Squidward's sobbing and crying become distorted, and now he has bloodshot red eyes. He begins staring at the viewer for the rest of the episode, all while distorted Squidward crying and screaming audio play in the background. During this, some glitchy gory shots are shown. In the end, Squidward takes out a shotgun and then puts in in his mouth. The episode ends with Squidward committing suicide, living up to the title.
Why I love to fear him/it: With a lot of stories revolving around the corruption of Disney (I’m looking at YOU Bendy and the Ink Machine!), it would be no surprise that Abandoned by Disney would be one of the few that are very good at that. Basically, this pasta is long and not really as unnerving as it’s supposed to be. All it is about is the journalist SlimeBeast trying to investigate why Disney would just immediately abandon a theme park they just opened. He eventually comes across with what makes this pasta as iconic as it is. The inverted Mickey Mouse costume just suddenly stands up, talks in a demonic Mickey Mouse voice and rips his (Or should I say IT’s) own head off and chunky, yellow blood drips. Sure, this villain doesn’t really chase or intentionally tries to stalk the protagonist but it is absolutely terrifying to see a lifeless mascot just stand up in an abandoned theme park and rip (it’s) own head off. Nope.
Why I love to fear him/it: Zombies definitely have a place in creepypastas, especially after having taken over the majority of pop culture. However, in the spirit of keeping readers on their toes, these zombies don't need frenzied biting to increase their numbers, which elevates this tale above and beyond other zombie-inspired creepypastas. After a massive oil spill, all those touched by the substance begin to viciously attack other creatures, causing mass panic across the country. The nameless protagonist holes himself up in his apartment, waiting for the screaming, violent horde to come crashing through his door and tear him limb from limb. If only that had actually happened, instead of the two day-long nightmare that really unfolds. Best you read this for yourself to know exactly why these guys are terrifying.
Why I love to fear him/it: Here’s a Creepypasta villain that actually existed. Originally written in the [] Reddit, this guy easily danced his way into the Creepypasta side of the internet. The Smiling Man will make you think twice before going outside for some night jogging/walking or just for fresh air in general. In the pasta, he begins following the protagonist while doing this cartoonish dance. What is so unnerving is hard to explain. He has this large, abnormal cartoonish grin and just looks like he would come out of a mental institution. A short film was made and it was very well done. Basically, The Smiling Man is a snapped Jim Carrey gone insane. Good grief, picturing that has created a new nightmare fuel…
Why I love to fear him/it: A painfully underrated Creepypasta, Annie96 is Typing is a unique Creepypasta. I am glad it is getting a lot of attention nowadays. However, let’s talk about the villain. Why is this Creepypasta so damn terrifying? It’s because we never really see what the villain looks like. We only hear his deep, demonic and haunting voice, which makes us know that he is not human. Then the ending makes us question what the heck just happened. He (Or It) is the embodiment of the Fear of the Unknown. This demon suddenly looks like David (One of the main characters) and begins stalking Annie. I seriously got goosebumps from “David”.
Why I love to fear him/it: He is Creepypasta’s very own Samara Morgan or Sadako Yamamura. He haunts a video game that is called The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. What he does is cause a lot of creepy glitches and begins tormenting the protagonist. What makes Ben extra creepy is the fact that his past remains a mystery. We don’t know if he was an abandoned character made for The Legend of Zelda, or a real boy who died by drowning and suddenly he is now a demon haunting a video game. Trust me; he made me paranoid to play The Legend of Zelda or any classic video for quite some time. Ben is a true iconic video game Creepypasta villain. He even has one of the most famous quotes such as: "You shouldn’t have done that…"
A staple of best creepypasta lists everywhere, the title of this story itself carries with it a sense of dread and horror. Shortly after World War II, five political prisoners are subjected to an experiment in which they have to remain awake for 30 days in a tank filled with an experimental gas. As with most science-gone-wrong stories, the test subjects begin to lose their minds among a number of other gruesome symptoms. The horror does not end when the experimenters try to save their subjects — far from it. Just know that this story may not be appropriate if you are squeamish or dislike gore, as the narrative goes into graphic detail about the physical state of the patients. Thankfully there are no pictures, or this would be the ultimate nightmare fuel.
Why I love to fear him/it: The scariest thing about the Goatman is how he can very easily blend into groups. This makes for many uneasy moments in the pasta where we are not completely sure if we are with the people we know or not. Add this in with the uncanny ability to speak in the tones of a half animal, half human voice and the characteristic to make the air smell strongly of ozone, and you have one bone chilling antagonist. There is a reason why this was one of the only pastas to truly get under my skin.
Why I love to fear him/it: As far as haunted house stories go, this one is probably the best. One might actually wonder if the house, itself, is actually alive. Once you go in, you will NEVER get out. NoEnd House promises $500 to whomever can survive a trip through its nine rooms of torture, a challenge that our narrator David readily accepts. The rooms begin to grow increasingly sinister and evil, pushing the limits of David's psyche and humanity. Are nine rooms really worth such a small monetary compensation that won't even pay for one therapy session?
Why I love to fear him/it: We got villains that haunt board games, video games, lost episodes, etc. But what about a villain that haunts a picture? Yes, it can be that simple to terrify a reader with just a simple thing that can terrify you. Basically there is this image called smile.jpg and it is said to have an image of a grinning husky with a bloody hand somewhere on the bottom left corner. Whenever you look at the image, you are visited by Smile Dog, now in a more demonic and horrifying form, in your dream and are told to spread the word. If you don’t, you will be driven to insanity until you commit suicide. Not even our pictures are safe!
Why I love to fear him/it: What’s terrifying about Robert the Doll is that he actually exists. The myths surrounding him vary, especially since it became so popular on the internet. The doll was given to artist Robert Eugene Otto in the late 1800s or early 1900s by a servant working in his family home. The doll, which he named after himself, then took on a life of its own and began to terrorize the family. Otto is said to have kept his doll into adulthood and it subsequently tormented his late wife to insanity. When the doll was found by another family, the girl to whom it was given was terrified of it and refused to have it in her room. The doll is currently residing in the Fort East Martello Museum in Key West, Florida. Visitors must ask Robert politely if they want to take his photo. If they mock him or take his photo without permission, Robert is said to lay a curse on them.
Why I love to fear him/it: Oh boy. This Creepypasta was awesome and spine-chilling. With the screaming episode and the jaw dropping twist, the villain of the phantom TV series Candle Cover remained to haunt everyone who read this Creepypasta. His name was the Skin Taker. Why is he scary? Well, there’s this one moment that made my back crawl. The girl protagonist of the show asked by the Skin Taker’ mouth moved back and forth instead of up and down like a normal character to talk, then he turned to the camera (Breaking the fourth wall) saying, “TO GRIND YOUR SKIN.” Yeah, sleep is overrated anyways.
Why I love to fear him/it: Now I am rarely pulled into horror stories that have child abuse because come on, cruelty against children can be very ugly rather than scary. However, 1999 is very well written to the point that the horrors against children actually works well. 1999 is a very long Creepypasta but it is worth every sentence. It tells the story of a blogger named Elliot who remembers a low budget television show that starred a man in a bear suit who lured children into his cellar. With further investigation, he discovers that Mr. Bear, the man who wears the suit, has been torturing children on his show to teach “lessons” and then sacrificing them by burning them alive with gasoline for the freaking devil! Mr. Bear is a monster. The Creepypasta was really unnerving and Mr. Bear was horrifying along with it.
Why I love to fear him/it: He is another iconic Creepypasta villain. He is so creepy and not even human, but a Furby-like monster. He is called Mr. Widemouth because he has a really large wide mouth. Picturing it can be very unnerving. Mr. Widemouth spends the majority of the Creepypasta pretending to be the protagonist’s “best friend” while trying to get him killed with failed attempts. Then this story ends with an unnerving twist that I refuse to spoil it for your reactions if you haven’t read it.
Why I love to fear him/it: The Rake left me sleeping with one eye open for nearly a month. What’s so scary his Creepypasta story is that it is told so realistically like real experiences that make you question whether this monster really exists or not. To spice up the horrors and paranoia, there are a lot of images and footage of humanoid creatures that many describe to be the Rake. The Rake basically watches you sleep and can enter your home, no matter how good your security is. Then he can brutally kill you within seconds. Also his face. When you picture it and see that thing staring at you in the night. Good luck sleeping, guys.
Why I love to fear him/it: From the same author as Abandoned by Disney comes this terrifying Creepypasta villain, Funnymouth. This is one very tense and emotionally charged story. It tells the tale of a couple of ordinary guys who are chatting on a social website, when a user named “Funnymouth” joins. Shortly afterwards, Funnymouth begins emailing this person without getting his address, and things get very scary from there. When Funnymouth finally does make his appearance in the climax of the story, you’ll wish he hadn’t. The story ‘Funnymouth’ also has one of the best endings I have ever read… you’ll just have to read it to see what I mean.
Why I love to fear him/it: Whether you heard of him off or on Creepypasta, Slender Man is one of the most iconic Creepypasta villains. He is my personal favourite Creepypasta villain because if it wasn’t for him, then I would’ve never have gotten into Creepypasta in the first place. I really find him terrifying, seeing as he is this faceless supernatural demon who wears a black suit, is extremely tall and has very abnormally long limbs that stalks children. He begins to stalk adults and teens as well if they have either encountered the Slender Man as a child or just simply grow obsessed with him. He causes many symptoms that prove the Slender Man is stalking you such as paranoia, insomnia, amnesia, nausea, ringing ears, coughing blood and continuous nightmares about it. What makes the Slender Man extra terrifying is that we never know what happen to his victims. We don’t know what he wants. Does he devour their souls? Does he take them to his dimension? Do they turn into trees? The Slender Man perfectly dives into the fear of the unknown, and is also one of the few Creepypasta villains to feel like a cosmic horror entity. He even fits all the needed traits. He makes his victims turn insane (And possibly become zombie-like slaves), has a massive cult following and has powerful abilities beyond human comprehension. There’s no stopping him. Once you become his prey, he will never stop until you’re his.
So that was my list of the top twenty scariest creepypasta villains in my opinion. I had a lot of fun writing this post. Who are the scariest Creepypasta villains in your opinion?
