Sonic.EXE - The Creepypasta Story
The Sonic.EXE creepypasta story is a scary tale centered around a young man named Tom, who was a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. Tom remembers when his friend Kyle gave him a video game CD and a letter, where Kyle pleads with Tom to destroy the game before it's too late. Tom, of course, ignored Kyle's warnings and played the game but quickly discovered that this version of Sonic the Hedgehog was far more disturbing than what he was used to, with Sonic himself having an evil-looking appearance, bloody eyes, and a sinister smile.
As Tom continued to play this cursed version of Sonic the Hedgehog, he noticed more and more disturbing things, including several gruesomely murdered animals. After having enough of the creepy game for one night, Tom went to bed plagued by nightmares of the corrupted characters he'd encountered while playing, including the demonic version of Sonic himself.
Unable to fall asleep, Tom returns to the game, playing and completing a level as the character Robotnik. However, the evil Sonic teleports in front of Robotnik before the screen turns into red static. Suddenly, a realistic image of the evil Sonic appeared on the screen with the strange words, "I AM GOD!". Understandably disturbed, Tom turned away from the game, only to find a bloodied Sonic plushie sitting on his bed. And that's where the story ends.
The spooky Sonic story went appeared on the Creepypasta Wiki in 2011, and ever since, it has inspired hundreds of illustrations of the demonic Sonic on DeviantArt. In 2012, a user named MY5TCrimson released the playable game version of the legendary Creepypasta character -- Sonic.EXE - The Game.

Other Sonix.EXE Mods
Over the years, Sonic.EXE has inspired thousands of awesome fan-made Sonic games and mods, offering players hundreds of unique versions to try. Below, we've highlighted a few of the best available mods perfect for every Sonic.EXE fan.
Sonic Exe One More Time
Created by user Mr Pixel Productions, the Sonic Exe One More Time mod is a straightforward mod aimed at improving on the original Sonic.EXE game. The creator had the goal of making the game more experience, and based on the praise it has received from players, they succeeded!
Sonic Exe One More Round
After the success of their One More Time mod, Mr Pixel Productions decided to come out with the Sonic Exe One More Round mod. With lots of disturbing new art and even more improvements to the game, the One More Round mod was, just like its predecessor, a big hit with players. As a bonus, the creator has even hinted at a possible third mod in the series in the future.
Sally.EXE was created as a follow-up to the original Sonic.EXE creepypasta game by MY5TCrimson. The short mod follows the character Sally, who is looking to find her love, Sonic. However, while trying to follow him through the hair-raising world, she realizes it's not the same Sonic she knows and loves. In the process, Sally ends up becoming possessed herself.
Sonic the Hedgehog: Editable ROM - EYX
Sonic the Hedgehog: Editable ROM - EYX was launched in March of 2022 by the indie developer, CloudyJolt_Gamer. This recent mod kicks the creepiness of the game series up a notch, featuring lots of very unsettling art with plenty of evident creativity.
Sonic.EXE and Friday Night Funkin' (FNF)
Friday Night Funkin' (FNF) is an open-source rhythm game developed by four Newgrounds users, including ninjamuffin99, and was released at a 2020 game jam event. FNF is reminiscent of the wildly popular music game, Dance Dance Revolution, requiring players to perfectly time their notes to keep the music going and avoid running out of health. So, what does Friday Night Funkin' have to do with Sonic.EXE, you may ask? Well, in some ways, the two games are closely linked.
As it happens, Sonic.EXE regularly appears in fan-made mods of the popular rhythm game. For example, Friday Night Funkin' Vs. Sonic.EXE 2.0 by RightBurstUltra features a very challenging version of the game that faces you off against a disturbing Sonic. Somehow, it turns out that Sonic.EXE becomes even creepier when he's spastically dancing to fast-paced, eerie music.
Another popular FNF mod is FNF Sonic.EXE Test by Bot Studio. The mod takes inspiration from RightBurstUltra's version of FNF. But in Bot Studio's version, the competitive element has been removed. FNF Sonic.EXE Test allows players to mess around with Sonic's creepy dance moves, with either the classic Sonic.EXE or the strange depiction featured in the Friday Night Funkin' Vs. Sonic.EXE mod. As you hit the arrow keys to test the dance moves, the bizarre musical notes also play, completing the unique, disturbing experience.
