Which X-Files Monster Are You?


During its 10 season run, “The X-Files” took viewers through dark and mysterious places as FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully sought answers about extraterrestrials and government conspiracies while battling some terrifying creatures. Admit it, you still have nightmares about Bark Creatures. Or shiver whenever you hear rusty wheels thinking it may be Beggar Man. So take this quiz and find out what terrifying “Monster-of-the-Week” you are. The truth is out there.

Did you know?

Accidental Theme

The theme song to "The X-Files" is one of the most iconic parts of the show and helped set its creepy tone. But did you know it was composed by accident? Veteran composer, Mark Snow, had the idea to include whistling after writer Chris Carter told him he wanted something for the theme that sounded like what "boy scouts in the middle of the night on a camping trip whistle to each other… and then a monster comes and gobbles them up." Composer Mark Snow took his whistling inspiration from the song "How Soon Is Now" by the Smiths from their 1985 album "Meat is Murder." But when it came to composing the rest of the theme for the sci-fi show, he was totally uninspired. In his frustration, he put his arm down on his keyboard which accidentally turned on the delay effect. This caused everything he played to have that chilling echo sound which was eerily perfect when paired with the whistling. The show's theme song became a hit. Literally. In 1996 a club remix by Triple X took the top of the charts reaching number 2 in the U.K., France, and Australia. It is a tune that is as catchy as an alien virus in your brain.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
