Why Is Slappy Evil? (3 Reasons Explained)

I’ll be answering the question why is Slappy evil.

Slappy is the ventriloquist doll from the highly popular Goosebumps novel.

He’s arguably the face of the entire franchise.

There’s been 2 movies that was released around his existence and could further solidify his place in the stories.

The question about his moral compass could stem from the confusing books that tried to explain his backstory.

But here we are and I’ll be filling you in on Slappy’s history.

Let’s go!

Why Is Slappy Evil

Slappy was designed to be evil thanks to his creator Ephraim Darkwell. Similar to the same way that Freddy Kreuger despised the residents of Elm Street and wanted to seek revenge Darkwell wanted the same. It’s dark magic that fuels this doll and he’s motivated to torment the human race.

You might be able to tell that there’s a trend when discussing horror icons and I think I found the answer to Chucky with this one.

If you want to see Slappy in action I personally recommend you check out Goosebumps 1 and 2.
