~ Jeff the Killer
Jeff the Killer is the titular protagonist/antagonist of the creepypasta story of the same name, acting as one of the most famous creepypasta icons to date, (almost rivaling even the Slender Man) being a deformed young adult who murders dwelling innocents in their sleep.



He was originally a young latent psychopath who brutally beat up a trio bullies, Randy, Keith & Troy, who were picking on him and his brother Liu in the town they had just moved to. Liu took the blame for it and was arrested, sending Jeff into a depression that seemed forever. Later, the bullies attacked Jeff again at a party, and Jeff killed one of them, but not before getting covered in bleach and lit on fire by Keith. During this fight, Jeff's mind permanently snapped.

When Jeff woke up, he was in a full body cast at the hospital. When the bandages were taken off, it was revealed that his face had become disfigured and ghastly pale from the burns, with bright red lips and a leathery texture. Jeff said that he liked his face this way and laughed hysterically, but the doctor foolishly thought that this insanity was just the result of the painkillers and let Jeff and his family (including Liu, who was released) go home.

Later that night, Jeff's mother found that he had carved his face into a permanent smile so that he would no longer have to exert energy to smile, as he put it, and burned off his eyelids so that he could always see his face. Jeff's mother went to her husband to tell him that their son had gone completely mad and needed to be killed, but Jeff caught them and knifed them to death. This woke up Liu, who confronted his brother but was "possibly" killed as well, with Jeff telling him as he was about to plunge the knife into his body, "just go to sleep".

Serial Killer life

Sometime later, an "ominous unknown killer" emerged and went on a killing spree. A boy who was lucky enough to survive the killer's attacks described the man as having inhumanly pale skin, a hideous smile, and dark, ominous, constantly open eyes.

After this incident, how Jeff's killing spree(s) goes is up for the writer to decide. The killer's blood thirsty attitude range from him being a drunken jerk who went toe to toe with the Slender Man or a child murdering psychopath who takes photos of his mutilated victims and hang them around his house.


Due to brutal bleaching and set to fire, Jeff is granted with perpetually insipid, pale skin. Having burnt his eyelids off in an attempt to never sleep, so he could always see that "beautiful" face of his, his eyes are lined with ragged black skin, giving him an even more ghostly stature. After the "incident", in the hospital he had found he now withholds thick, black hair - which he lets fall to various shoulder length. And possibly one of the most distinctive traits of all - the terrifying smile that he had sliced into his face.

This killer's build can be commonly described as slender, reaching a tall height of around six feet. Clothing normally contains of lifeless colors such as white and black, skinny jeans, sweatshirts, and the usual bloodstained t-shirts and converses. Though in desperation he is willing to use any form of weapon - Jeff is known for luring his victims to an eternal slumber with a butcher or steak knife and his soft, eerie tone of voice.

Character's Origin & Creation

On October 3rd 2008, a YouTuber named "sesseur" uploaded a video called "Jeff the Killer [Original Story]" the video was then populated across the internet multiple people added jeff the killer to creepypasta he was a whole different character, even up to now people go to the video and comment about it.

Sesseur claims he is jeff the killer and that every internet sinsation about jeff the killer is fake, even the famous story that published about Jeff he says is fake. He claims Jeff never had an insident with bullies nor bleach or vodka, instead, he claims that Jeff was hauling a gallon of acid into his bathroom to clean out his bathtub but slipped on a bar of soap and the acid splashed all over his face and he was taken to a hospital due to the neighbours hearing his crys.

Multiple fans wonder where the face had come from but until some of the 4chan users remembered a suicide of a young woman named Katy Robinson, who killed herself due to being cyber bullied, her face was apparently photoshopped and she killed herself over it, not many people saw the picture before it was removed but some say the picture was the infamous Jeff the killer image, also just by looking at Katy's photo, it looks similar to the early photoshopped version of Jeff.

It is unknown who sesseur really is, it is possible that he had something to do with the Katy Robinson suicide.


  • Jeff is known to be hunted by Jane the Killer. Though this isn't done out of original storyline.
  • Though Jeff seems to just be your average Creepypasta killer, there have been an uncountable amount of sighting videos, articles, and messages, making Jeff grow out of his fiction frame and into an urban-legend status character.
