*** WebVideo/MarbleHornets has [[spoiler:Tim, who was not only seemingly committed for paranoia, suicidal tendencies, and seizures, but was trapped in a hospital fire, yet miraculously survived. All of these are Slender Man calling cards.]]
*** WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID, at the very least, has [[spoiler:Steph, whose immediate family were murdered by him, leading her to feel stalked by him ever since. It's also been hinted at, however, that all of the main characters have a childhood connection.]]
*** WebVideo/TribeTwelve has [[spoiler: practically every major character. Both Mary Asher and Milo had regular, or semi-regular, contact with Slender Man during childhood. Additionally, Noah was revealed not only to have been observed by the collective as a child, but to have survived a house fire when he was younger. Whilst the house fire is suspicious enough on it's own, Noah's parents mention seeing someone suspiciously Slender-like walking through the rubble. Noah's grandfather, Karl, also grew up in a German community near the Black Forest that used folktales of the "Great Man", who supposedly lived in the woods, to [[ScareEmStraight frighten their children into obedience]]. It should be noted, however, that Karl did not have a direct encounter with Mr. Tall, Dark and Faceless until adulthood.]]

** The sheer number of monsters in unrelated works that are reminiscent of Slendy is just a bit unsettling. This includes [[Literature/TheKingInYellow the Stranger in the Pallid Mask]], The "Thin Man" in ''{{Film/Metropolis}}'' (some translations have him as "The Slender Man"), [[Literature/ThePhantomTollbooth the Terrible Trivium]], [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer the Gentlemen]], [[VideoGame/ChzoMythos the Tall Man]], the other [[Film/{{Phantasm}} Tall Man]], [[Literature/{{Nightside}} the Harrowing]], [[Series/DoctorWho the Silence]]-- hell, go far enough back and you get the ''noppera-bo'' of Japanese myth.

Or, if you prefer: The Slender Man is an internet born character-entity originating from Website/SomethingAwful, created by user Victor Surge in the "Let's Create Paranormal Images" thread (Slender Man posts start [[http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3150591&userid=0&perpage=40&pagenumber=3#post361861415 here,]] though most of the images are now gone). It soon reached memetic status, spreading through several blogs and videos, and quickly became the horror we know and fear today.

* BaitAndSwitch: Some series hide the fact that they even include the Slender Man, most famous of which being WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID, but TheDeadAreWatching wins out for even hinting at Slendy for ''five months'' of the series run.

* TheBadGuyWins: Most stories that have actually finished either go for this or [[UnreliableNarrator cast doubt on the Slender Man being present at all]]. Of course, one could consider it unfair to actually defeat a communal character with finality.
