    Lavender Town Syndrom/Pokemon Black

    Lavender Town Syndrome refers to an incident of mass child suicides after they heard the original version of the Lavender town song in Pokemon Red and Blue. The original creepypasta is a very long read, but here you go:

    Pokemon Black (or Pokemon Creepy Black, because they've released an actual Pokemon Black since the story cropped up) is supposedly a hacked cartridge game of Pokemon which included a mysterious Pokemon named "Ghost" that could curse other Pokemon and even people to DEATH. Since that creepypasta surfaced, mods have been made to mimic the gameplay of the story.

He promised to update immediately after coming back from visiting the cave ONE LAST TIME... and he never did.

    Don't look too long at this spoopy dog picture. The rumor is that if you download the image to your hard drive (or simply look for too long, depending on who is creepypasta-ing) you will go insane because it's haunted.

    Gateway of the Mind

    Often referred to as one of the spookiest of creepypastas. The Gateway of the Mind story details a science experiment that confirms what Nietzsche already knew: God is dead. But don't take our word for it, just read it:

    Let's lighten things up a bit, huh? This one is still a classic, although it's unlikely to inspire any primetime TV shows.
