Prove You're the Best.
―The Scare Games' slogan.

The Scare Games is a competition with different events to put a monster's scaring skills to the test. It is pivotal in the 2013 Disney/Pixar animated film, Monsters University.


In the film's universe, the Scare Games were founded by Abigail Hardscrabble when she was a student of MU, and she won them four years in a row. Only fraternities and sororities can compete in the competition, and each must have at least six monsters on the team, even if one member is actually more than two beings sharing a body, as was the case in Terri and Terry Perry. In the film, six teams competed:

Jaws Theta Chi
  • Dirk Pratt
  • Roy "Big Red" O'Growlahan
  • Omar Harris
  • George Sanderson
  • Percy Boleslaw
  • Baboso Goretega (absent)
Python Nu Kappa
  • Naomi Jackson
  • Carrie Williams
  • Heather Olson
  • Crystal Du Bois
  • Britney Davis
  • Taylor Holbrook
Slugma Slugma Kappa
  • Violet Steslicki
  • Donna Soohoo
  • Brynn Larson
  • Maria Garcia
  • Carla Delgado
  • Debbie Gabler
Roar Omega Roar
Eta Hiss Hiss
  • Rosie Levin
  • Nadya Petrov
  • Sonia Lewis
  • Susan Jensen
  • Rhonda Boyd
  • Nancy Kim
Oozma Kappa


For the teams to know about the events, they get a riddle/rhyme which gives them a clue what the event will be and where it will take place.

Name of Event


Where it Took Place

What the Event Was Representing

What the Teams Have to Do in the Event

Toxicity Challenge

"A child's room is where you scare, but avoid the toxicity lurking there."

The Sewers

Avoiding the toxic items in a child's bedroom.

Run through a sewer tunnel in the dark, avoiding the stinging glow urchins.

Avoid the Parent

"If a kid hears you coming, they'll call Mom or Dad, then you'd better run fast or things will get bad."

The Library

When scaring, don't alert the parents and get caught.

Grab their team's flag from a statue and get out, all without disturbing the librarian.

Don't Scare the Teen

"To frighten a child is the point of a scare. If you frighten a teen, then scarer beware."

In a Maze

Avoid scaring teenagers.

Run through a maze and scare kid pictures, but don't scare the teen pictures.

Hide and Sneak

"Someone is coming, this could ruin your night; stay hidden, take cover, and stay out of sight."

In the ΣΚΘ House

Keep yourself hidden so you don't get caught when scaring.

Hide in the fraternity house from a referee and escape without getting found.

Simulated Scare

"Every one of your skills will be put to the test. The Scare Simulator will prove who's the best."

The Scaring Stadium with 2 Scare Simulators

How scary are you?

One by one, team members go head to head in Scare Simulators, set to the very highest difficulty level.

The last team to finish the event is eliminated from the competition.




Jaws Theta Chi

Toxicity Challenge

They were caught cheating by putting on an illegal protective gel that would prevent them from getting swelled up by the urchins.

Slugma Slugma Kappa

Avoid the Parent

They were purposely making too much noise and got kicked out of the library.

Python Nu Kappa

Don't Scare the Teen

Accidentally scared the Teenagers and got stuck in the maze.

Eta Hiss Hiss

Hide and Sneak

They resorted to typical monster hiding places like behind a curtain, under a table, and up a chimney, all of which were off limits, and got caught breaking the rules.

Roar Omega Roar

Simulated Scare

They were out-scared by Oozma Kappa, but technically, because Sulley hacked the settings on his team's simulator.
