Hello everyone with another chapter of Creepypasta OC For Dummies!
Today, I'll list the most common cliches in the making or writing of Creepypasta OCs.

And I quote from KomradApex from his wonderful How to Avoid Making Your Creepypasta OC a Mary Sue:
"What is a Mary Sue? Different people seem to have different definitions but there is one in particular I am familiar with, and the one most often found in creepypasta Mary Sues. This is the type that is basically the author, only cooler, sexier, and always quick with a bad punchline when they kill someone, with more friends than the author does but still oh so tragic and misunderstood. They probably have cat ears and maybe a mask. And they are always way, way overpowered. Oh, and all the male creepypastas are in love with them. You know the type of character I’m talking about.

Now, not every character that has just a few of these traits is a Mary Sue. So don’t jump the gun and throw away a character idea just because it sounds similar to what I’ve just described. On the other hand, if it meets every one of these criteria, maybe it’s time to go back to the drawing board." - Shacklesoul
In conclusion, its ok to have some of these things if its not..
A) Overdone/Used Poorly
B) It Makes Sense (EX: Appearance/Backstory)
C) Creatively done/Designed (Masks for example)
D) Not just mashed together to make that one (OH SO SCAWRRRRYY!) Oc.

So have fun!

EDIT: Some of these cliches can be justified in your character designs ^^

As I quote the lovely pncke
Everyone has at least a few of these.. Like Sadie for instance cuts on her arms, I mean her father became abusive/alcoholic due to his wife's death and with the whole high school deal people will have clicks preps, jocks, etc because it's natural.

The dreaded list (That will be updated frequently as possible)

  • A lot of tragedy/unexplained backstories
  • Having one or more mental illnesses (Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Paranoia..etc)
  • Ship Creator/ Yourself w/ Jeff,BEN, EJ, Masky and Slendy
  • Neon hair/clothes
  • Different Colored eyes/ Heterochromia
  • Unpractical clothing (Especially on "the Killers" OCS) (Short mini skirts, Tube tops, hose, high heels etc..)
  • Shipped with JTK, Slender etc.... (Canon x OC)
  • Nekos
  • Red and black eyes
  • Bleeding eyes
  • Being bullied as their only reason to kill

  • Overly used weaponry (Knives, Swords, Teeth, guns....etc)
  • Alcoholic father/ passive aggressive mother/ spoiled younger sibling.
  • Bullied in school
  • No friends and no one likes them for no apparent reason

  • Abusive parents
  • Sexually abused in backstory
  • Rape Victim
  • Sexy as all hell
  • Always has Bad Punchlines in dialogue (During fights, arguments etc..)
  • Overpowered with various powers that don't make sense (Slender Tendrils with Zalgo corruption magic and can use the almighty force of Satan himself- No. Just no.)
  • Recycling Existing Creation Species/Models (Here's a List located here)
  • Being a Proxy of ____ with no explanation (on why they were chosen, why did ___ spare them...etc)
  • Being a Proxy in general
  • Having a Darker Side/Other side (Yes yes I'm guilty of this. But Nightmare Ally has a good explanation on why she exists as Ally's darker self.)
  • Being Son/Daughter of _____ (Slender, Zalgo etc)- (which I am also guilty but I have a good explanation with Ally that makes sense)
  • Neko/Cat ears!
  • Antisocial
  • Very agile
  • Can kill people instantly
  • Kills everyone the OC sees
  • Too young/ Always preteen or teenager (age is mostly around 13-17)
  • Can see dead people or can talk to dead people
  • Mask that changes with mood
  • Having Another Form (Rage form/Nightmare Form... etc)

Some cliches from the wonderful CreepyJC

  • Somehow has no eyes/bleeding sockets with red glowing pupils despite having no eyes 
  • Red eyes
  • Glowing eyes (usually red)
  • Sharp teeth for no reason except to look "TOTES SCAWWWYYY"
  • Dyed/highlighted hair
  • Black hair
  • Bleeding 
  • Crying, frowning
  • Pale skin
  • Covered in blood/surrounded by organs
  • Huge grin (possibly with blood)
  • Clashing Colors
  • All black clothes
  • Black with red clothes/vice versa
  • Colors that do not match

  • The Operator symbol EVERYWHERE
  • Anime desu look
  • Black eye sockets with red pupils and bleeding
  • Cuts/wounds

  • Sexualized
  • SO CRAY-CRAY!

There you have it! Enjoy!

EDIT #2: Ika's guilty for some of these as well!

I'm guilty of these ones in one or more of my OCs:

  • Having one or more mental illnesses (Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Paranoia..etc) (Ally)
  • Bleeding eyes (Hangman & Soothsayer)
  • Abusive childhood (Ally & Ravon)
  • Alcoholic father (Ally & Ravon)
  • Bullied in school (Ravon)
  • Being a Proxy of ____ (Ravon, Soothsayer, Owlet & Voltage)
  • Being Son/Daughter of _____  (Ally)
  • Having a Darker Side/ Having Another Form (Ally)
  • Antisocial (Ravon)
  • Very agile ( Ally, HV, Soothsayer and Ravon especially)
  • Always preteen or teenager (All my OCs except Soothsayer, Eclispe and Hangman)
  • Bleeding eye sockets (Soothsayer) 
  • Bleeding eyes (Hangman & Soothsayer)
  • Pale skin (Ally, Hangman, Soothsayer & Gambler)
  • Bleeding (Hangman, Gambler,  and Soothsayer)
  • Imaginary friend plot cliche (Ally in her Backstory- Slender originally was her Imaginary friend)
  • Overly used weaponry (Ravon and Soothsayer- They both use some form of knives)
  • Eyeless, sometimes with black goop spilling out (Soothsayer)
  • Black tentacles like Slenderman's (Ally)
  • Sharp teeth (NM Ally and Soothsayer)
  • Bleeding wounds/covered in blood (Hangman and Gambler)
So yes, to tie in what pncke had said about her wonderful OC Suicide Sadie, these cliches will happen but they can make the character you want and justify them if you do well with it!

So I have an OC who is based entirely off of my own experiences, and has some similarities overall with what people may consider to be a Mary Sue. It may be easier to just send you the link to the sheet, actually. If anyone who reads this comment or the sheet thinks that Misery is a Mary Sue, may you please give me suggestions on how to make her appear to not be a Mary Sue. Thanks. Here's the link, I guess:

that is very helpful for creating a bio for your creepypasta characters, ive seen ALOT of rip off of ' the killer' ocs or '.exe' ocs that kinda makes some actual creepypasta characters like Jeff or sonic.exe (even though his story was taken down due to lack of creativity, im making my version of him) look really bad.

A few cliches I see at times in creepypastas are:

-No explanation for the actions of characters.
-Monsters being immune to harm.
-Characters investigating a haunted place despite nobody is brave enogh to do that in real life.
-Dark or red eyes on monsters.

I'm guilty of having a few of these, but my character is still in the making. She has a mask because otherwise it would be as clear as day that she isn't 'human'/'alive'.

She's also eyeless (Which once I think of the time line more, I may have to change.) because as an undead/zombie character, bugs/fish ate away at her eyes.

I wouldn't call them wounds, but she is missing some flesh and otherwise necessary things for humans.

She isn't bleeding or crying, but it may appear so for there's liquid that is running from her mouth/eyes.

Questions: What would you exactly classify as 'big ass boobs'? Because my oc has fairly large boobs but not too large that she sometimes uses to 'distract' her victims before she kills them, lol, perk of having a nice rack eh? Cruel joke I reckon because she's 2 sided. She's sort or like a siren. She will lure her prey in with her irresistible beauty and when the time is right she will attack them like a psycho wolf.

Do custom made or normal hunting knives count as a overly used weapon or do they get given some leeway. I reckon they should because they are not so easily obtainable as the kitchen knife and they do look different, come in a few different styles and can be told apart from a kitchen knife. I just want to know because I'm making creepypasta oc who lived in the woods, went hunting with her father, yada yada ya, became a creepypasta, etc, and she uses a hunting knife as one of her weapons, the other two being claws and fangs. With with the CPOCFD: Commom Creepypasta Clichés, is 5 from 'the dreaded list' and 4 from the 'Some clichés from the wonderful' a good score? And I swear to god and my life that they have very very good reasons for each one! And does it count on the list if they were a mask for their winter outfit. Because they have their normal outfit and then one for each season.

Welp .... Alysa DOES have some of these , about four or five or even six of them but they are all explained in the story

For example , she doesn't eat much at all which caused her to be paler than a healthy person , and also caused her to be pretty much weak physically but she counters her weakness with planning before striking.

And as for the other creepypasta encountering , she hasn't met any of them yet and is NOT planning on dating them , she knows about them and she counts them as enemies since she is ACTUALLY antisocial and not friendly towards anyone (If you count this as unrealistic then I'll tell you I was like this during my childhood)

But if you got any advice , I'll welcome it.

Funny thing is, these are one of the reasons why I never made a creepypasta character. The clichés appear too common like having no eyes but red dots in their irises, blood and gore, etc. If I eventually do want to make a creepypasta character on my own, at least I want it to be unique, original and one of a kind. Besides, I wouldn't even put the word "Abused" in any of my creepypasta characters.

I'm guilty of doing a lot of these things, but you forgot one thing; being rich or being scrap poor, I've seen it a lot and sometimes it doesn't even make sense. I actually have a character who has this cliche but I use it to give her a reason WHY she has schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder; she was lonely all because she was kept inside the mansion she was born and raised in, and talking to the few maids and butlers there as well as her parents isn't all that good of company.

And here I am, wondering if anyone has made a list like this!
I'm actually working on a CP OC and I see that the idea I have doesn't actually have a lot of these, it is only the few that go into the characters design in the first place. And the character isn't even human so... Yeah.

And now to deliberately create a Mary-Sue CP OC just for the LOLZ and because I actually do have nothing better to do XD. And then I can try to think of 1,000,001 ways to kill her, but know only 1. Using the Mary-Sue OC Repellant Spray to keep her away for another day. Or 12 hours or something like that. Plus... I do hate most of these things as well , but haven't actually seen any Neko-OC's or Proxy-OC's on the internet pages I have been on so I must be lucky. And then I came here and found that people have got Proxy-OC's after all (But my idea isn't because he doesn't know any of the Canon CP's or come from the same universe).

  • Yaoi Ships 
  • Being a Proxy of Slenderman with no explanation (on why they were chosen, why did Slenderman spare them...etc)(He isn't a proxy any more.)
  • Being a Proxy in general (ex)

  • Black eyes
  • Black hair (The person I based him off of has natural black hair IRL)
  • All black clothes
  • Black with red clothes/vice versa

Red and black eyes ((Only in nightmare form)

 

Bleeding eyes (Only when transisting to nightmare form)

 

Dead parents in backstories (His father died when he was a couple of months old, and he killed his mother a few months after his transformation)

 

Bullying in Backstories (It was one of the driving forces, but not the only reason)


Abusive childhood/was a bully victim/rape victim (He had a lot of hardships in his life)


Black tentacles like Slenderman's (Slenderman gave him those after he died)


Sharp teeth (He's a mutated humanoid lizard)


Bullied in school (Again, it was one of the driving forces, but not the only reason)


Super good killers just because (He had been alone in the woods for some time before he met Slender face to face)


Being a Proxy in general


Having a Darker Side/Other side (He has it because of his built up anger)


Being Son/Daughter of _____ (He's more of a adoptive son to Slender)


Very agile


Can kill people instantly  


Having Another Form (He's kind of a shape shifter)

Switch personality disorder ( later in chapter 7/8, she usually just hangs in the woods, but being a cursed Half spirit (mortal from mums side)(im thinking...how about: she tends to go paranoid and kill only those people who have hurt OTHER innocent people, because of her backstory.. actually i'm still thinking about her killing strategies so yeah...)
3. dead parents (TA-DA! fml!)
4. cursed (again fuck me ,sorry)
5. having bipolar-ism and sometimes paranoia
6. abusive...not father but uncle... who she ACCIDENTALLY killed ( again fml)
7:SOMETIMES friendly around canon character ( tho non of them are in a relationship with her, and she rarely meets them since she hangs around in the woods, and isn't close to anyone of them :3)

Kiara (still won't tell her official c.p name ..no spoilers :3 inspired by Lazari Swann by :iconchibi-works:

some stuff i like about her
1. overprotective sister mode XD
2. she isn't overpowered.
3. she has weaknesses (won't give away spoilers, they're gunna come in ch 6/7 and 8 XD XD XD)
4. she isn't all LOVEY DOVEY FRIENDLY GOEY FUN ALL YEAR ROUND and neither is she all FUCK YOU I HATE YOU IM AN EMO LEAVE ME ALONE!


reason i wrote her: it all started with depression, and i coukd channel my thoughts and emotions in this story, soon some of my 
friends said to post it online and i did, But now , Kiara is a part of me :3
