Midway through the month, the admins put up a themed poll of four terrible creepypastas that users can vote on. The story that receives the most votes gets featured on the front page as Fail of the Month.


December: On one bloody christmas eve


November: Xelex


October: Homicidal Liu


September: How I Met a Terrible Fate

The protagonist discovers his Nintendo 64 "Ninterror 64" he bought for $2 plays glitched and gruesome versions of his N64 games. So he marathons about a dozen of the games to see all the horrifying new side-effects, such as sudden violence, cryptic language, and lots of explosions for... some reason. As expected with bad creepypasta of this caliber, many instances of the infamous stopwatch cliché appear throughout. And as if the story weren't bad enough already, the protagonist then discovers the N64 is likely haunted by the antique shop owner's dead son who loved creepypasta. Yeah, there's nothing else to say.

August: Murderpuff

"I saw my friend in a pink Jigglypuff sweater. I gave a little giggle until I broke into laughter. But I stopped right when I saw it. A knife. His pocket knife. He swore only to use as a whittling knife."

A friend's infatuation with Jigglypuff turns him into a murderous weirdo for... some reason. There's not much of a story, but what is there is bizarre. The knife fight the main character has with the friend is especially comical. A short but quintessential fail.

July: MaRIo

"To this day, I cannot play Super Mario Bros... And the other morning, I woke up to see 'MaRIo' carved into my arm."

Much like every other bad video game creepypasta, this story relies heavily on gruesome imagery within the game as a crutch. Despite a few laughable moments, like the game cartridge containing a note inside by the dad that says "you're next", it's largely by-the-numbers. Predictably, it ends with the protagonist proclaiming he'll never play the series ever again.


"I reluctantly clicked it, and the video started. What we saw horrified us. It was us, as characters in Minecraft, along with all of our family."

A story that implies the protagonist's friend is killed by an Enderman. In real life. That and the fact it portrays gorey Minecraft videos as genuinely terrifying makes it no surprise it won the poll. It's a doozy.

May: A Close Encounter with the Tails Doll

"The Tails Doll was furiously slashing at the door, a piece of the door flew out of the window and the Doll's dark eyes were glaring at me."

Unlike most video game pastas, this one involves a character from the game wreaking havoc in the real world. The story becomes more absurd as it progresses, including a scene where the Tails Doll wields a chainsaw against the protagonist. The outlandish material and horrid writing makes it a laughable fail in every way.

April: SpongeBob SquarePants: Rage and Depression

"I couldn't call Stephen Hillenburg because he died, so I decided to call Paul Tibbit. He told me that some SpongeBob hater nearby Nickelodeon Studios must've hijacked the place and created it."

A ridiculous and melodramatic story about SpongeBob going into a deep depression after Patrick dies in a plane crash. The poor writing, odd moments, and terrible dialogue are sure to get a laugh out of anyone.

March: Sonic.exe

"Sonic is the very embodiment of evil, he tortures people who play his game in more ways than one and then when he gets bored he drags you into the game, literally drags you to Hell, where he can play with you always, as his toy...."

Perhaps the most infamous video game creepypasta, it's no surprise Sonic.exe won the poll in a landslide. It's a tedious and poorly written slog that relies on clichés and pointless violence for horror. The author's meltdown in response to the story's deletion from Creepypasta Wiki has also gained infamy. In recent years the character of Sonic.exe has managed to stay popular and overshadow the story itself.
