'''''[[Sonic.exe]]''''' is a story about a child named Tom, who had received a disk copy of [[wikipedia:Sonic the Hedgehog|Sonic the Hedgehog]] from his friend, which was for him to destroy it. In the game, a different title screen is shown, featuring an eyeless Sonic with glowing pupils and blood flowing out of his eyes, with the background turned into a dark, red version, while omnious music plays in the background. The title screen soon fades into black, where a select screen appears, with Tails being the only playable character in it. Tails would appear in the "[[wikipedia:Green Hill Zone|Green Hill Zone]]" level with no actual gameplay. While the level is almost completely empty, continuing to walk forward for long enough would result in dead animals. If Tails makes it towards the end of the level, he will encounter Sonic with his eyes closed. At this point, a short cutscene plays, where Tails slowly walks into Sonic's shoulder. Once Tails touches him, Sonic will open his eyes before cutting into black, with text stating: "''Hello. Do you want to play with me?''" Tails was then brought to the next level, where the "game" was to run away from Sonic, but Tails was caught and killed thereafter. Despite Tails being the only playable character, he is followed by Knuckles and Robotnik. As Robotnik, the goal was to walk down stairs and run forward inside of a castle lined up with lights, where he would encounter Sonic.exe in front of him. From here, a hyper-realistic photo of Sonic.exe appears with the words "I AM GOD!" on the screen. After a while, Tom found a Sonic plush toy covered in blood behind him.

After the text, a list of persons' age and names appears on the screen. The video had two [[screamers]], including [[Jeff The Killer]] and an eyeless Japanese child. This urban legend is popular on 2ch and rumors started to spread. This legend was inspired by NNN news network commercials, in which when a major event occurs in Japan, all stations on the network have their broadcasts stopped to announce the incident. Things are different in the urban legend "NNN Extra Broadcast." The broadcast of any television network is interrupted to show a list of people who will die tomorrow which ironically claims to be from NNN.

The cartridge contained a save file of the former owner BEN still on it, so he created his own save file for himself, named "Link". However, Jadusable had encountered a bug where NPCs would sometimes call him "BEN" rather than "Link" itself, which led Jadusable to take the blame for the save file of BEN. He then deleted the save file to fix the problem, and it worked. There was nothing odd happening when Jadusable tried modifying the game out of place, until after he tried the Clock Tower trick, he was brought into the middle of a Majora boss fight room, where Skull Kid stared at Jadusable for a few seconds. This prompted him to visit [[4chan]] and discuss about this haunted game. The game had follow-up stories to continue.

Main Article: Luna Game

Sonic.exe is a video-game creepypasta story about a child named Tom, who receives a disk copy from his friend who begs him to destroy it. However, not listening to his friend's warning, he instead played the game only to find it as the haunted version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The antogonist, which was referred to in the story as "X" or notably "Sonic.exe", appears almost identical to Sonic, with the difference being that he has black eyes and red pupils, as well as having a huge grin.Tom played three characters, including Tails, Knuckles, and Robotnik, who were later killed by X in the end of each level. After all three characters are killed, a hyper-realistic close-up of Sonic.exe appears with the lines "I AM GOD!" on the screen. Later, Tom soon found his Sonic plush toy stained in blood.

Originally posted by user JC-The-Hyena to Creepypasta Wiki, but it was soon deleted by the admins due to it being poorly-written.[7][8] ​Soon after the Gamejolt developer MY5TCrimson created a game based on the story,[7] the creepypasta has been referenced and based on in many screamers, such as An Ordinary Battle Amongst Familiar Hills, as well as its own fan-made games such as Tails Save Mobius.exe.

Luna Game, which was based on the example of Sonic.exe, was also known as a creepypasta, disguised as a simplistic platform game featuring Luna from My Little Pony as the main character. The game often presents the player with rather unsettling images of the characters from said show while accompanied by a loud scream and noises. Officially published by Ceremi, the game was created using Game Maker 8 Pro and originally published on the MLP forum, Equestria Daily, on April 3, 2011.

BEN Drowned[edit | edit source]

BEN Drowned also known as Haunted Majora's Mask Cartridge, is a web series an alternate reality game created by Alexander D. Hall, better known as "Jadusable". The story of Ben Drowned is about a graduate student named Jadusable who received a haunted cartridge of The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time from an old man at a garage sale. The cartridge contained a save file of the former owner BEN still on it, so he created his own save file for himself, named "Link". However, Jadusable had encountered a bug where NPCs would sometimes call him "BEN" rather than "Link" itself, which led Jadusable to take the blame for the save file of BEN. He then deleted the save file to fix the problem, and it worked. There was nothing odd happening when Jadusable tried modifying the game out of place, until after he tried the Clock Tower trick, he was brought into the middle of a Majora boss fight room, where Skull Kid stared at Jadusable for a few seconds. This prompted him to visit 4chan and discuss about this haunted game.
