The War of the Creeperian Succession (Creeperian: Guerra de la'Sucesión Creeperiano) was a Creeperian civil war of the late 18th century, triggered by the death of Manuel III in November 1783. The war was fought between rival claimants to the throne, brothers Manuel IV and Salvador III.

Manuel III never named his heir as either Manuel or Salvador and both were twins at birth. Manuel was believed to be the older of the two but supporters of Salvador declared him to be the older of the twins. When Manuel III died, Manuel IV was proclaimed Emperor, but those who supported Salvador resisted and declared him Emperor. The Army fractured and skirmished in San Salvador, beginning the war.

Salvador III was seen as the Conservative Emperor while Manuel IV was seen as the Liberal Emperor. As such, the Creeperian Catholic Church aligned itself with Salvador III. However, after an engagement between Salvadorist and Papal soldiers in Suchitoto, Pope Pío VI changed allegiance and sided with the Manuelists.

The war of succession ended when Salvador III in battle during the Battle of Denshire on July 6, 1790. His death solidified the reign of Manuel IV who would rule Creeperopolis until his death on June 14, 1833, in the Revolution of 1833, which was lead by Salvador III's grandson, Adolfo III.
