Essentially internet horror stories or a myth passed around other sites, to frighten readers and viewers. The word, "Creepypasta" comes from the term, " copypasta ". An internet slang term for a block of text that gets copied and pasted from website to website. Creepypastas are sometimes are supplemented with pictures, audio or video footage related to the story. Typically with gory, distorted or, otherwise, shocking content.
Suicidemouse.avi was the grandfather of all lost episodes. It showed Mickey Mouse walking down a endless street with random piano keys playing in the background. The video gets more distorted and music turns static. See for yourself.

Also, Sonic.exe is a very well known Creepypasta. There is even a clone of the game to download. Although it's it well done, the clone will never have the same fear factor as the story did.

Lastly, Slender Man was introduced in 2009 in the Something Awful forums. Slender Man was not well know untill 2012 when Mark Hadley released, "Slender:The Eight Pages".

Online stories that will haunt the things that haunt you. Things you read during the day thinking "this'll be fun" and then wish you hadn't when night comes around.

Creepypastas are a bunch of fictional characters such as Jeff the Killer, Eyeless Jack, Slenderman, Sally, etc... The characters where originally just creepy stories like all the other creepypastas but they were taken over by fangirls.
Person 1: Hey bro, did you read that new creepypasta I told you about?
Person 2: Yeah, I heard it from Mr. Creepypasta on youtube, it was so creepy!

Creepypasta is an online horror genre based around serial killers who have psychopathic traits and murder people for fun, revenge, ect ect. However not all Creepypastas are serial killers, some of them are based around strange creatures. People had also claimed that some of these stories have grammatical errors, while it's TRUE that some of these stories have been poorly written, they are still quite frankly grotesque and fucked up even if they were written unprofessionally.
Person 1: Danm Jeff the killer's story is so poorly written, why is the author so unprofessional?

Person 2: It may have terrible grammar in it but that story still fucks with my mind, on how truly messed up it is.

Person 3: I like Ben Drowned

Person 4: No Ticci Toby is better!!!!


Person 5: Meh....I like all kinds of Creepypastas no matter what.
