7 Creepy and Real Anti-Piracy Screens

Creepy anti-piracy screens aren’t that hard to find. Creepy and real however is a different story. With a flood of fan-made creepy anti-piracy screens, I decided to dig out the real and unsettling ones hidden in games.

A huge shout-out to the Easter Egg Hunter. He has covered dozens of anti-piracy screens throughout his series and many of the ones found on this list can be found in his as well.

  1. If I made a Sierra railway-themed game my anti piracy would be: a Corona Headlight shows and one of the most famous locomotives, number 3 comes up slowly and if the train is close enough there's a distorted sound of number 3's whistle.

  2. What was the background song throughout the video?

  8. the higurashi anti piracy screens are so funny, characters suddenly saying your ip

  9. Fun fact: The name of the background music in this video is Libet's Delay

  10. idk if you'll hear this one year after but the first ones fake. if you say yes to the devil taking your soul it puts your song backwards and it doesn't show that on your screen the audio. its hidden in the game files, im too much of a cuphead fanatic to think it was real

  11. cuphead one is actually fake. Yes i pirated the game but the song was the same.

  12. Literally Fan-made ones are just horrifying and will haunt your dreams and your life and soul

  13. when i was a kid my dad pirated kirbys epic yarn and they knew, but all what happened was an email from nintendo and the game screen was black and whie the whole time

  14. Correction: The Cuphead "anti-piracy" song doesn't play whenever you pirate the game, it plays when you accept The Devil's deal and get the bad ending!

  15. Imagine having epilepsy while playing pirated DJmax fever

  16. I was playing OOT on the switch online software and the hair thing happened to me it freaked me out. The door thing didn’t happen to me though. Then I saw this video and it freaked me out more

  17. I still find it funny how the player in gold rush said "No, really, Im jesus!"

  18. These aren’t even remotely creepy

  19. Cuphead’s theme gets reversed if you quit to main menu during Devil boss fight as well.

  20. The gold rush answers have no manual, its an actual history book on the california gold rush.

  21. The Cuphead game: plays that creepy song

  22. If I made an anti-piracy screen, I would make it a pov of one of the characters killing the player

  23. The Cuphead Anti-Piracy Screen Is Actually Fake, A Developer Of The Game Confirmed This.

  24. Zelda oot never had that issue as I played through the entire game with no issues

  25. 🅱️𝐃𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐧🅱️ says:

    thought it said gulaged

  26. you forgot the sonic cd piracy Majin screen…. I thin kits a piracy screen idk

  27. 🅱️𝐃𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐧🅱️ says:

    thought ti said gushing game

  28. If I ever made my own game .. it would surely have an anti piracy screen . But like – so weird .. not even an anti piracy screen at this point . Lol

  29. Dang. The kings quest one is dark. Same for gold rush

  30. the vid: anti-piracy screens
    youtube: OMG GUYS ITS ZELDA

  31. these were so terrifying i could feel the anti-piracy coming inside me

  32. most of these arent even real :/

  33. wait…
    if you think about it, hes technically becoming a criminal

  34. For Gold Rush, they did the same with Stunts 4D racing. If you didn't have it, you'd start the race and then it would just crash on you

  35. I want to k ow the source of the Mario pics where he has a million sharp teeth

  36. This is a well made video. I’m glad you didn’t include any over the top scary and threatening ones, and kept it real

  37. calling any of this real is a bit far fetched lol

    I love how you used an EATEOT song. It's so nostalgic and amazing. It goes well with some of the classic games shown here.
