Scary Mary

Mary is the main antagonist in the two part episode "Scary Mary". Mary was a beautiful girl who was obsessed with looking at herself in the mirror.

One Day a fire started and Mary didn't notice the fire, until it was too late and she burned to death. Her restless spirit, revolted by her gruesome burned features, waited for someone to chant her name, so she could take their face and once again be beautiful and adored.

To summon Mary, you must hold a candle in front of a mirror in a dark room, and say a poem. Then turn on the lights and look in the mirror at the same time. An insecure girl named Hannah carries out the task, but nothing appears to happen. Days later, Hannah finds a compact hairbrush with an M on it. Later Hannah sneaks out to go shopping for beauty supplies.

Hanna is in her room applying make-up and brushing her hair with the M brush she found. Unbeknownst to Hannah, girls with masks are in her mirror. When her mom hears something she finds nothing in Hanna's room. After she leaves, Hannah is revealed to be in Scary Mary's world because the girls in masks broke through the mirror and pulled her in. While in Scary Mary's world, Hannah refuses to be like everyone else, who have given their faces to Mary. Mary uses the girl's faces to disguise herself as one of them, hoping that a boy will come to rescue the girl and take Mary out of her world, but nobody ever comes. Hannah's friend Eric comes to find her and finds Mary with her face and realizes that it's not her. Mary's farmhouse sets on fire, representing what had killed her. He finds the real Hannah in a chest, then gets back to the real world by going in a river full of Mary's tears. Mary later called for Eric from the mirror.


  • She is based on the famous urban legend: the mirror ghost, Bloody Mary.
  • Mary is one of the six recurring antagonists of the series, the others being Lilly D., Jake Skinner, Dr. Mangle, the Pumpkinheads, and Gresilda.
  • she is also somewhat similar to Peyton westlake aka darkman from the darkman film franchise as both Try to repair there burned faces with the only difference being Peyton is an antihero who would never sacrifice innocent people to restore his face and instead uses his scientific mind to create masks of synthetic skin for him to use until he can find a permanent mask that lasts longer than 99 minutes without dissolving unlike the other prototypes make which unfortunately do dissolve while Mary unfortunately tries to kill innocent people and use there faces to resort here. Also Peyton is alive while Mary is unfortunately dead. Also Peyton is obviously male while Mary is female.
