There is a figure that does not hide or lurk in the shadows, but stands tall and unseen in the light of day - visible only to its prey as it stalks them. It appears as an extremely tall, thin humanoid in a formal suit with impossibly long limbs and [[TheBlank no face to speak of]]. Its origins are as much a mystery as what - if anything - it wants. Its presence is associated with paranoia, delusions, and even physical illness. Those who see it are often driven to scrawling strange messages and scribbling sketches of a dark, faceless figure - prior to their going utterly insane, or disappearing entirely. The less you know the better, for knowing too much may make you the subject of its interest.

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.

** 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}}'', [[Literature/ThePhantomTollbooth the Terrible Trivium]], [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer the Gentlemen]], [[VideoGame/ChzoMythos the Tall Man]], [[Literature/{{Nightside}} the Harrowing]], [[Series/DoctorWho the Silence]]-- hell, go far enough back and you get the ''noppera-bo'' of Japanese myth.

Added DiffLines:

*** As it turned out [[spoiler: the film very effectively uses the mythos as a RedHerring; the first half leads you to believe a Slender Man-type figure is responsible for the missing children, but the real explanation is completely non-supernatural and much more rooted in AdultFear.]]

** Yggdrasil allusions also pulled up a ''HouseOfLeaves'' reference in Just Another Fool, namely Logan living on Ash Tree Lane. Several other short stories also involve a lot of ''HouseOfLeaves'' references (such as [[http://quiaegosicdico.blogspot.com/ A Lack of Lexicon]], which has a ton of references) as well, likely due to the appeal that the work has to lovers of the mythos.

** This is actually how Slenderman appeared in the setting of Glimpse The Beyond RPG. Magi theorize that all appearances of Slenderman are actually Tulpas, paranormal creatures that are invisible and incorporeal in their basic form, but can become visible and corporeal by taking the form of legendary creatures, Slenderman being one of them. If a player does some metagaming, he or she can see that game mechanics definitely make this possible, since A) a legendary creature must have between 150 and 200 General Points for a Tulpa to take its form, and B) Slenderman has 170 General Points.

* TheFairFolk: One of the earliest stories of what Slendy may be; that he's a malevolent fairy that lives in the forest and preys on naughty children. Several theories presented during [[http://www.youtube.com/user/deaddoll00?feature=mhee FearPlay]] also speculate on the subject, including the possibility that Slenderman may, in fact, be an entire forest.

** If interprented with Carl Jung's theory of the collective subconcious, Slenderman has always existed in our minds and the person who created the Slenderman drew from that subconcious unknowingly and unwittingly unleashed him!
